I still got 26 rewards cards as @sharkmonsters even though I didn't play. It'll be fewer and fewer cards each season until I'm eventually back in the novice league.
That's not bad! A legendary card is always fun, even if it's "just" a Sacred Unicorn, which is probably the least exciting of all the legendary cards.
I also got 26 rewards cards for playing as @oh-high-mark and making it to the Gold II league.
Look at that! Three epic cards on one page!
Nothing super noteworthy on the second and third pages of these rewards, but they can't all be winners, right?
