2013 GP Schedule (promo: Primeval Titan), OP changes

  • #53
    They should have given a Modern legal more expensive rare/mythic, like thoughtseize. We need way more thoughtseizes in the market than primeval titans...

    What you did there. I see it.

    Anyway, I'm glad for this, even though it sees nearly 0 competitive play. I like complete cycles and this gives cubes a fun option.

    I'm sorta sad that Prime Time is the promo. I was hoping to land a Lotus Cobra for my Cube (now I have to search for one)

    As for the changes, I'm not really into the competitive scene, but it's nice to know that WoTC has increased player incentives.

    Thoughtseize is a pretty safe include in Modern Masters. Hopefully it's still Rare.

    If they put thoughtseize at mythic I leave magic. Should have been uncommon for starters.

    This promo is just terrible. I can't believe they would do this so soon after it was banned in EDH. Frown

    Primeval Titan was only banned in EDH three months ago. Cards get printed further in advance than that. Besides, it sees play in Modern (Scapeshift/Valakut).

    Absolutely. Cashseize at rare still remains one of the biggest slaps in the face that Wizards ever did with rarity. No reason at all for it to be there.


    GP Schedule looks nice, but I wish they would have more big stuff around Boston (which is already a long enough southward-bound haul). Or give Midwest/Southwest bros some more love.

    I bet they're also a little peeved at the rules council for killing Prime Time. Wizards would also do well to avoid making a Consecrated Sphinx promo any time soon.

    Oh man, I can't wait to play this promo in Legacy 12-Post, and... nothing else?
    Quote from love_blanket
    The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means improve you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.

    Yeah the (much) lesser competitive versions of Scapeshift....

    So many serious comments. I better say something witty...

    not the right thread, but its the best discard spell they've ever printed... Rolleyes

    anywho, why no east coast modern GP? booo.

    Why do you supposed they stuck to 1200 for the turnout requirement for more invites? I would still think top 8ing a GP of 1000+ is still pretty much a monumental feat. Perhaps they feel the cost of tickets for 8 instead of 4 would be offset by the larger number of people.

    Quote from EX33396948
    Dohoho! I see what you did there. No, this feels more like them completing the promo cycle of titans. The fall promo could be anything, but will probably be modern legal if I had to put my money anywhere.


    You forgot... Gorilla Titan!

    GP Oakland is M14 limited and the other two I can easily travel to are Modern (SD/Portland). That sucks.

    A Pro Tour in Dublin is nice though. Looks like I'll be going all out that PTQ season. Would love to take a trip back home.
    What am I playing? Glad you asked!
    Standard - Mono Green Control G
    Modern - Soul Sisters/Vizkopa-Martyr W - Living End BRG - Jund BRG
    Legacy - Junk BWG - Maverick GW - SI BG
    Foreigning out SI, currently 33/75. The only thing better than a T1 kill is doing it with cards no one has ever heard of and/or can't read. If anyone has any of the usual pieces, PM me. I'm willing to buy/trade.

    Yay! Toronto is a limited event again.

    /happydance

    The last 2 GPs in Toronto.
    Scars Limited (2010): Almost 2k players
    Modern (2012): Barely 1k
    On the downside, it's also not in Toronto again.

    I actually like the art, it's a great Promo, it's really too bad it's banned in EDH tho.
