Comment your best packs opened

Just wondering what everyones best packs that they opened are. For me it would be cool thoughtseize, regular thoughtseize in the same theros pack along with playing a booster box game and getting foil Chandra and 4 masterworks during 5 boxes at a gp. Still ending with 100$ cash. But in one pack my most valuable pull would be a tarmagoyf back when it was still 130$ with the foil rare in it. I can't remember the rare though. But just comment your best packs down below!
Wasn't my pull, but back in my highschool mtg heydays, my best buddy pulled two Wrath of Gods out of one Tenth Edition pack.
I myself don't really have any pack stories. I just don't buy packs except for Drafts, which even then I rarely do. I did first-pick a Vorapede once though, and have loved the card ever since, even if it is a junk mythic. lol

Not my most expensive pull, but a pack 2 Elspeth, Sun's Champion when I was already drafting white is my all time favorite pull :)

Masterpiece Rhonas was one of mine in recent memory.

My best pull, without a doubt, is when I went to my local LGS and modern masters 2 came out a week ago. I had exactly 30 dollars and was originally was going to pick up some sleeves. They had exactly 3 packs of MM2 left from the box they opened. Temptation kicked in so I bought them. Usually, the manager would let us roll for the pack but since there was only one, I told him to "knock" on the packs for me. I bought the pack and started on my way home, I decided to open the pack outside and I pulled them in this order.
I damn near passed out on the intersection lol. I couldn't even scream.

My best crack, from a personal point of view, was a foil Chandra, Torch of Defiance, as Chandra is my favourite Planeswalker and, to me at least, Chandra, Torch of Defiance is the best Chandra that has been printed.

So another funny time for me was when I was hanging out at my lgs the day after the tournament and someone had left 4 Cavern of Souls . I waited an entire week and no one claimed them, I almost cried. My favorite moment was when I went 0 and 4 at a tournament except everyone got a foil card from the shards of alara all foil packs. I got a foil progenitus and almost lost it the next day.
Also thanks everyone for commenting. I enjoy these types of threads.

My best were:
Back during BFZ, attending a draft at my lgs, we decided to mix things up a little and go with everyone getting packs from standard sets at the time. I started with my BFZ and opened a Prairie Stream expedition, then next I opened my DTK pack to get an Atarka's Command, and lastly an OGW pack to reveal a Fetid Heath expedition!
Another time after placing well in fnm, I on a whim decided lets try and open a masterpiece, so all I did was purchase a lone Aether revolt pack to open a Chalice of the Void masterpiece :)

I also rarely buy packs.
The only think of value I pulled for my self was Rhonas (non foil non masterpiece).
We played a iconic masters sealed with friends some time ago. One of them wanted to keep the cards so he paid the boosters and let me play with the cards. I oprned him a concecrated sphinx and a horizon canopy

Similar stories to those above, back in 2013 I bought the last Modern Masters 1 pack at my LGS (for like 15 dollars, prices were already starting to go up from the MSRP) and pulled a Sword of Fire and Ice and foil Cryptic Command. Feels good

Not the "best" pack but one of the most memorable three packs for me was a MM3 draft. Pack one, I open up an Arid Mesa and excitedly lay it on the table. Guy two chairs down from me looks confused and lays down his Arid Mesa. Guy on the other side of the table shows his.
Three Mesas in one box and we all chose their packs for Pack 1.

I've remembered a couple more.
I bought an Eternal Masters box, hoping for Force of Will.
I didn't get one.
I bought a single pack from my LGS, and cracked one.
I decided I was gonna buy one single pack from Modern Masters 3.
I said to the employee, "This will be Liliana of the Veil".

Glimpse the Unthinkable was the worst of the bunch, but at least it got better from there.

Shitty foils from the Iconic Masters packs though.
