    Sad to hear about the PSD, but I can't WAIT to see what's in this Commander's Arsenal. I hope we get a lot of nice commander staple reprints again. Smile

    Here's the skinny:
    Commander was tremendously well-received. They're going to do it every single year from here on out. However, because their turnaround time is only so fast, they couldn't get one ready for this year, so instead what they're doing is Commander's Arsenal, which won't be a complete set of decks like we got with the original Commander product, but rather a pack of neat stuff for Commander. I'm guessing that it won't contain new cards, since they didn't say it would. It will however have some oversized cards, some cards with new art, and some cards appearing in foil for the first time.

    Yes November this year.

    I swear Jivan you're everywhere, where there are cries about edh. You aren't the spirit that the edh community deserves, but the spirit that the edh community needs.

    I remember reading that they're revisiting old cards and black bordering them. Expect to see old stuff but not broken old stuff...

    but who knows, i could be wrong and they might just reprint some goodies for us
  • #8
    Here's hoping for some P3K goodness like Imperial Seal and Xiahou Dun. Those cards desperately need a sharp kick in the price tag.

    Did PDS bomb that hard?

    Did PDS bomb that hard?

    It was more that they hit a point where they were putting too much value into a non-randomized pack and not getting enough out of it to be worth it. Note that WotC's money comes from boosters, so anything that undermines the integrity of their randomized product by containing a lot of value for the MSRP in a precon has to be a huge success (like, say, the Commander precons or a FTV set) to be worth it for them. The PDS series was profitable, but the company wasn't comfortable with what they had to put in them for their price point to move the product.

    At least, that's what they said a couple months back when one of the company folk said as much on Twitter.

    For staple cards, sleeves and what I expect will be cardboard fold-out deckboxes? What do we think the price point will be?

    I'm hoping it features things like a handful of Sol Rings, Command Towers, Signets, Talismans, Diamonds, bounce and painlands... general goodstuff.

    Maybe we can expect to see awesome stuff like Sensei's Divining Top and Bribery this time around. We can only hope.

    Completely understandable. Many prefer they spend their time developing commander product and I prefer they spend their year on working on FTV:Planeswalkers because we now have fifteen different planeswalker types:rolleyes: Oh, wait, wizards didn't put up Tibalt on their planeswalkers list! If anyone's got an explanation on this I'll welcome it. Or did Tibalt bomb that badly that they don't want to recognize him?

    Any word if it's all foil?

    I would love that, even though some would hate it.

    The possibilities here are ridiculous-
    I'd best not set expectations too high.

    Perhaps this is where the Medallion cycle will show up. It seems strange they would commission 5 really nice artworks, then never use them outside of DoP.

    I hope this isn't all foiled, I don't like foils, it skews the colors. I'm one of those guys that wants all his cards to look atomically consistent.
