    Occured earlier on this afternoon Australia time. We had a great time with this release and it added to the excitement of the day! Hope you enjoy the rest of these events around the world when your time comes! Grin

    No Demonic Tutors as "rumoured"?

    Quote from LandBoySteve

    Here is the reality.

    John Doe needs a Wurmcoil. The store owner is selling them for $15. But John Smith has one for trade. He trades his Wurmcoil for a Bladehold that the store owner sells for $20. That's $35 in income that the store owner lost. Now, multiply that by the 30 or so people that play at the LGS and you can see how much money he loses in an evening.

    So, we had two midnight Helvault flights at our local game store. One Helvault had everything that I had known about from the spoiled pictues posted online, but the other one; it had foil tokens and DCI Judge Exalted Angels (along with the dice and oversized legends). 108 foil tokens and 54 Exalted Angels. What's up? Has anybody else heard of or seen this?

    There is a post in reddit where they say that they got judge foil demonic tutors

    pretty excited to see what I'll get in my helvault's prerelease that starts in 6 hours from now, XD

    There seem to be enough reports about this that it might possibly be true. Several in the reddit link also said they got promo decree of justice.

    If its true, here's hoping my helvault has some judge foils!

    Holy crap, wizards could have possibly pulled off the most epic trolling of the MTG community by doing this! Can't wait until my prerelease now!

    Edit: someone on that reddit page says (and has pics) of judge foil demonic tutors they pulled from a helvault supposedly.

    I didn't see all of the contents at my store, but I got a foil oversized Griselbrand, foil angel/demon token, non-foil angel/demon token, and foil judge promo Exalted Angel. There were two Helvaults for the store and I didn't see any non-foil oversized cards, but wasn't really paying attention.

    This reminds me of the "hidden treasures" in Zendikar packs! Epic move, WOTC. You've successfully trolled us.

    Yeah, complaining about getting beaten by Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician is pretty sad.

    Just got back from a Helavault pre-release, and there was nothing in ours except the oversized Angels and Griselbrand, dice, and regular tokens. Kinda crappy that they didn't put cool stuff in all of them.

    If this is true, it's somwhat akin to the zendikar hidden treaures deal. If every vault had judge promos, that would really devalue judge promos.

    Does anyone think the Karmic Guide promo will show up since it's an angel?

    I'd really doubt it, since it was just released and has only been given out to judges at a couple events.
  • #18
    They probably just took every excess promo that was angel/demon themed and put them into random Helvaults.

    I would absolutely love to visit my prerelease, but I'm good. This gives me hope for a judge Demonic Tutor, but I really hate my Mimeo EDH right now.

    Can you imagine the fervor if the 54 judge demonic tutor was the one spoiled last week instead of the crappy one?
  • #21
    I would kill someone for a Judge Demonic tutor. 54 of them would probably end up with me murdering all of the regulars at my LGS just so I could keep 'em.

    You need all 54? How many Commander decks do you have? :p

    It's my favorite Magic card ever with sweet art work and all shiny. I would probably just put them in my bathtub and roll around in them, laughing maniacally. Then, I would put them in my commander decks. Even those that aren't even black.

    After that, I will put together a casual deck that consists of 30 Demonic tutors, the rest being swamps and dark rituals. So i can tutor for tutors for hours.

    So, I guess they did something kinda cool. For everyone that got the lame bonus stuff, I wonder how many will learn that there was actually good stuff to be found? The idea is to make it exciting, and an event, and bring people in to something unique. But there are a lot of people who only go to pre-releases and don't read up on all of this stuff, so they will likely be left feeling disappointment and let down, not caring to pre-register for one of these events in the future. For those already more integrated, they may try to get to more events, so I guess we'll see if this turns into a good move, but it would be nice to somehow let those people who feel let down know that there was something cool done.
  • #25
    Well, this is a huge slap in the face to those who only got the crap-filled vaults.
