Configuration: 60 cards per deck.
3 Rares per DeckFourth Edition was released in order to rotate the contents of the base set. The rulebook was updated to include most of the rules from the Legends expansion and to be much clearer on some points. The cards still have white borders but the color was made much richer and "copyright 1995" was added to the base of the cards. Released in April 1995, 4th Edition (Fourth Edition) was a new version of the Magic The Gathering basic set. In a continuing attempt to balance and add new flavor to the game, fifty-one cards were removed from the Revised Edition and 122 cards from previous expansions were added, bringing the total cards to 378.
