Card packs, also called Expert Packs, are card packs you open to add cards to your collection.
Each card pack contains 5 expert cards. Each card has a chance to be of common, rare, epic or even legendary rarity, but each pack is guaranteed to contain at least one card of at least rare quality. Most packs will only contain commons or rares sometimes you might get lucky getting the occasional Legendary card to really beef up your deck.
