    2 years from now we'll probably get the staples from Alara to now, including fetchlands.

    decent idea, but it'll drive up prices of current goyfs, then all the reprinted stuff will increase in price. see the shockland reprints. demand will increase, supply probably won't be able to meet demand, and prices will go up.


    The demand of the shockland increases because they are now in Standard. Which these cards won't be.

    This sounds like it could be a cube like format for draft, which would be kind of cool. Still gonna be pretty expensive to draft in comparison.

    Quote from Lomax
    The feeling of mythic is something that can't be quantified, so we'll have to agree to disagree here.
    For me, though, being one of the most talked-about and powerful creatures ever printed is good enough for a mythic.


    I guess so. I believe that mythic-ness should be based on flavor or uniqueness. This is too meta for me because tarmogoyf is not special or particularly awesome in the Multiverse, only in Earth's Magic community, so I do not think it is worthy of mythic status.

    Really liking the sounds of it so far, and love that it's draftable.

    Is this set's release going to affect standard at all, like coldsnap did?

    Or will this be something to boost your ability to acquire cards, like the all foil Alara boosters?

    It is not legal for Standard. That is the intention of making it a special set and not reprinting the cards in a regular one.

    For some reason, I foresee getting trolled when the only Tron land that makes it into the roster is Urza's Tower.

    freakin' sweet.

    I'm so glad this got printed. It really will lower the barrier getting into Modern. Maybe Wizards really wants to push Modern as a format. Reprinting of shocks, now this? Possibly Modern coming as a FNM format? Then maybe larger events at SCGs?

    I know Wizards said the MSRP is $7, but that usually is not accurate judging by the FTV sets and Commander's Arsenal. I don't trust it at least.


    Look, people are still too hopeful and excited to realize this. Some, of course, will just block out the reality. The reality being, it's a small print run, and there's no way everyone will be able to buy as much as they like at MSRP. If the distribution numbers are low, stores will have no trouble selling it at double the MSRP. Think Worldwake, but even more sought after.

    Eternal Witness? Maybe some Snake Elf Druids? Some of the Portal commons that ended up in 9th?

    I must get as many boxes of this as I possibly can. This is wonderful news.
    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.
  • #198
    Can't wait to draft cards I've never even seen in real life. I imagine always getting my money's worth in normal drafts and usually in the redraft. This seems like a "cool" thing for wizards to do. I don't care about standard, so this is my chance to get awesome cards. Woohoo.

    Ironically, Worldwake was selling WELL below MSRP when it was first released. Nobody wanted that garbage. Same with Morningtide.

    Wizards could put $100 bills in packs and people would complain about how they were folded.

    Okay, that makes a lot of sense. It is too bad though. Worldwake was widely printed with only one card that people were really excited about and it is still $10 for a pack that should be $4 at MSRP. This set will be far more expensive than that ever was. Frown

    The fact that Goyf exists as a Mythic in this set just reeks of executive meddling.
  • #203
    I think it's hilarious that they called this both "short-run" AND "draftable". It's one or the other. If it's short-run, good luck getting enough product to hold a draft.

    I plan on pricing these packs at MSRP in my store, unless there's an outrageous shortage because Hasbro is full of a bunch of filth-flinging monkeys who don't understand how the market works. Oh wait...

    I started playing during zendikar, so this will only have stuff from sets I have never opened. So cool. I wonder how much I will actually get to open though... I mean, I feel like my store might have one draft that will have to be preregistered months in advance then I will never even see a pack from this set again. Why is forcefully limiting product ever a good thing?

    Sounds like a one card combo to me, unless you are counting lands as part of your combo
    Quote from Fizzeler
    Hermit does need to enter the battlefield somehow so you can win the game :p

    This may be the first time "Tropical Island" has been a part of any combo. Just saying.
