Our 10th edition spoiler, located here,
currently has over 300 of the 383 cards that will be in the new base set!
Our number crunch thread is hard at work to figure out the remaining cards!
This base set is proving to be quite exciting, and the rumor season is no different!
Progress on the spoiler is moving along quite nicely, with a big thanks going out to all who have contributed to the number crunch, especially all those who have provided information thus far.

I for one am curious to see if in the remainder of the 80+ cards will there be something thats a "linchpin" to a known awesome deck besides Seismic Assault because I for one dont see this deck or the dreaded Beacon of Immortality and Rain of Gore as too much a threat in any format at the moment!
Yeah yeah... aggro players seem to be pleased as well as the control players but us combo orientated players seem to be lacking 'THE' card that just says... "Hey... I am going to build deck just around it that wins!" (Like when Dragonstorm came out.)
Beacon + Rain of Gore don't work as a combo. You only lose the life if it's from a source you control.
Aside from that, X ed. is looking good, at least for Red. I, too, hope that there are some bombshells left in the last 80 or so cards.
I can't believe that there's no Stone Rain; it's never been out of a base set, and this more "iconic" base set than most would seem to necessitate it. Are we certain of the numbers near the end of the red cards listed? Just one number off & there'd be room for it...:-/ Can anyone confirm?
(M:tG) It's a hobby which costs money. You can't play golf without the right clubs and a membership for the golf court, you can't play paintball with a cardboard armor and a sling, you can't go to the movies without paying for a ticket and you can't play Magic without owning the cards. Simple as that.
it was in kamigawa, i dont think stone rain was in anything else except that and the base set
i cant freaken believe it, are there really reprinting pithing needle? there is only so much money i can spend
Champions of Kamigawa (BEST LOOKING ONE OF THEM ALL! Greg Staples is one of the four Art gods.)
Yeah. Stone Rain has gone round the block a few times. Get over youselves, you Stone Rain lovers.
I was already seriously considering a box of tenth after the anouncement of Black Bordered core. Because you know that is something they will probably not do again for a long time. Being that it is sort of a celebratory set of sorts, this is the "once in a blue moon" scenario.
Exciting part about nearing the end is that all the rares pop up and the Number Crunch gets easier to fill in. Though most of us are still kinda shrugging our shoulders at some of the empty spots.
true, i might just buy like half a box for 45, the main card i want is pithing needle if its actually coming
Yes, Pithing Needle's been confirmed and will be in Xth. Your chances of getting one by paying for half a box is slim, seeing how many rares will be in the set. Additionally, you can't buy half a box unless you split it with someone else. You'd have to literally pay a few more dollars for the eighteen boosters, since I think you get a ten-cent discount per pack in a booster box.
