    Not much new here except maybe the confirmation that they'll again have brand new non-reprint cards in the core set.

    Actually if they make the DBT a yearly annual updated thing, so now it'll come with boosters and cards from the Innistrad block and M13 (so they'll be good in Standard for a year) that's a very good thing.

    I'm surprised the battlepacks made it. They didn't seem to do so hot at most stores.

    And last year they were released on August 12th, giving them only a month and a half of life before the Standard rotated out. Hopefully the M13 event decks will be better thought out.

    Yay! Magic Celebration again! Grin
    Quote from PhyrexianExile
    I use the Duels Of The Planeswalkers layout, though I'm right-handed and keep my deck and GY to the left. I dare you to ask me how tempting it is to hold flying creatures in a floating pattern over the table.

    It always surprised me that they didn't, but maybe it's because I'm not a retailer.

    I thought stores might buy them and use them as promotional items. They'd be a great way to teach 2 new players how to play and give them a few cards to start building a deck with.

    I know where I am they retailed for ~$10, which I'm guessing made cost on them somewhere around the $6 mark. Divide that in half because you get to introduce 2 new players to the game.

    So for ~$3 you could introduce a player to the game, give them a deck to play with their other friend at the kitchen table, and tell them that they're halfway to an FNM playable deck. If they want to buy a few boosters, or an event deck or something and come back and play, they're more than welcome.

    Seemed like a relatively cheap way to promote the game to me.

    Those Celebration packs were loaded. Nearly every pack that got opened in the lgs I was at had a foil or mythic. Can't wait.

    M2012 wasn't as exciting as M2011. Hopefully they will spice it up a little and include a few cool new cards and rotate a few cards *cough* titans *cough*

    I like that they are confirming new cards, I mostly liked the new 2012 cards although as a set it was not mind blowing...

    This page says that Nicol Bolas will be in M13... unless it's a new version, I guess that means that multicolor will finally be part of the core set?

    No that page says that the horns of Bolas are from M13.

    It's been confirmed for months that the titans are being printed again in M13.

    "Nicol Bolas from...M13" not "Horns of Nicol Bolas from...M13". Somewhere, your english teacher is crying.

    It's been confirmed for months that the titans are being printed again in M13.

    Uh...no. Not a single thing from M13 has been confirmed, and even the devs say they don't care for the Titans

    I have one thing to say about this. $#&*$&#*%&*#&$(#*$(#*$( which roughly translates to bull****.

    The Celebration packs I opened contained jank, and the format was super meh and luck based.

    NOTHING has been confirmed for M13, but I'm betting the titans are out. Titans in 3 consecutive core sets would be sooooo disappointing, considering the titans take up 5 mythic slots.

    The titans are in my opinion set warping as they make alot of other previously perfectly good 6 drops useless although a certain nearly free spell helps that along as well.

    I honestly can't see them being in M13. Look at cards like Lightning Bolt and Baneslayer Angel. They were in 2 core sets (recently) and then poof no reprint for you.

    As for Bolas being in the new core set it's highly unlikely they'll put multicolor in a core set because apparently it's difficult for new players to understand although I think they'd struggle more with Planeswalker IMHO.

    Finally as far as the core set goes I think that right now the majority of information we'll see over the next month will be Avacyn Restored information rather than the core set.

    If there is any hope for reprints from this most recent core set to the next one I have high hopes for Solemn Simulacrum.

    That being said the most recent Arcana mentions and I quote.

    This week's wallpaper features the horns of Nicol Bolas from Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 and the Magic 2013 Core Set. Enjoy.
