    FUUUUUUUU-
    dammit, you just ruined my day, MaRo!
    Hopefully you made at least one new (U/G) one-drop!

    Also, thanks for finding the proof, Pulse, even if it's news I despise.
    Maybe it should be added to the main post so it becomes more common knowledge? Wink

    Grrrr... Gatecrash better have some really cool stuff to make up for these incomplete cycles.
    At this point, I'm heavily resenting they saved my favorite guilds (Simic, Dimir, Orzhov, Boros) for the second set :p


    Those next mechanics had better be superb. I could get no counter cycle being excluded, but those hybrids are arguably the best cycle in rtr. Mayhaps a cycle of 1 drop hybrid enchants or something will replace them.

    Or maybe they won't be a cycle, in RTR there was the "1 drop hybrid uncomon creature cycle", but even with this cycle, there was others 1 drop hybrid outside of the cycle. So i bet that instead of a closed cycle, GTC will have a non-cyclic 1 drop hybrids. With 1 mana hybrids scattered between rarities and different card types. I just really hope for a good 1 drop for Orzhov...

    The booster packs:

    Both of my guilds in RTR and GTC have their guild leaders instead of guildmages on the packs. That's an interesting turn of events.

    So I guess we know what the pre-release promos for each guild will be.

    Orzhov - Treasury Thrull
    Dimir - Consuming Aberration
    Gruul - Rubblehulk
    Boros - Foundry Champion
    Simic - Fathom Mage

    For RTR, the guild promos were the same as the featured card for each guild intro pack. I think it's safe to assume they'll do the same thing here.

    I'd like to note that it is likely that cards like Transguild Promenade and Tablet of the Guilds will be reprinted from RtR. There is a noticeable slot in the card numbers of the lands for a land starting with "T", which I believe could easily be Transguild Promenade. If not, then that's a surprising similarity. Has Magic reprinted something in this way, in two expansions from the same block?

    They did want to reprint a card in the same block, though I don't remember when (Time Spiral-Lorwyn era, perhaps?). They didn't do it to prevent confusion in Limited, and you have to keep in mind that RTR and GTC are going to be drafted together, too.

    err... wait I thought that GTC was supposed to be "triple drafted by itself"... or am I missing something here?

    Success is no proof of quality. It's much more likely to be proof of mediocrity.

    RTR - triple drafted
    GTC - triple drafted
    Dragon's Maze - RTR + GTC + Dragon's Maze

    That's why Dragon's Maze is a small set that includes all ten guilds apparently. That's also why I'm not so sure that we'll get the same level of mana-fixing in this set since RTR was packed with it and was probably to help along standard and the long-term limited.

    Do we get one guild promo plus a guild rare that comes in the guild booster? Or is it the promo that comes in the booster?
  • #72
    The guild booster has 2 rares.

    Promo + semi randomized booster rare.

    I was just wondering if they are spoiling the rest of the cards on Friday, or next Friday.
