    It only cost us the traditional Las Vegas Modern Masters Grand Prix, too. :/

    Iconic Masters:

    Is there anything left to drive sales of this product?

    There are no cards left with any value. Rishadan Port, I suppose, but there's no Force of Will, or Mana Crypt left. Even Goyf is down to $90, and Lili is $80.
    Unless they reprint Zenfetches, there's no draw to this set at all.

    Nostalgia is not enough to drive sales.

    I want to state the position clearly, because then we can construct ways to overcome the problems.

    Leylines weaknesses are that we are trying to find 5 cards, plus a specific land, plus a specific enchantment, while, at the same time, avoiding a counter - particularly Force of Will.

    Now, the 5 leylines is rather easy. That almost comes to us.

    It is the finding the other cards that is hard. We have several options, including Crop Rotation.

    What we are forgetting is, that with 7 of our lands tapping for a mana of any color, we have the entirety of Magic's 1 drops available to us.

    Here are some 1 mana instants, sorceries, artifacts and enchantments I have found:
    Noxious Revival, Oath of Nissa, Peek, Pithing Needle, Ponder, Portent, Preordain, Brainstorm, Quiet Purity, Demystify, Erase, Expedition Map, Gitaxian Probe, Index, Mana Tithe, Natural Selection, Natural State, Nature's Claim, Authority of the Consuls, Autumn's veil, Burst of Energy, Argivian Find, Reach Through Mists, Read the Runes, Reciprocate, Red Elemental Blast, Renegade Map, Rescue, Retraced Image, Sensei's Divining Top, Serum Visions, Silence, Simplify, Sleight of Hand, Sorcerous Sight, Spoils of the Vault, Spy Network, Stifle, Surgical Extraction, Wear // Tear, Telepathy, Terrarion, Tithe, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Twiddle, Urban Burgeoning, Vessel of Nascency, Visions, Wax // Wane and Wild Growth.

    Now I know that is a lot of cards to look through, and some may be of no use at all, but these are all the 1 drops we can possibly, maybe put to use. Some are amazing, like Spoils of the Vault and Spy Network.

    On the 0 cmc end, there is not so many options.

    Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Mishra's Bauble.

    Play it as a 4 of in the main. Extra copies double the damage. It is susceptible to removal, though. All the more reason to run 4. It is a continual effect that punishes a player for playing his deck - you have no upkeep, unlike regular burn, where you need to keep drawing and keep pinging. In addition, it inhibits his game plan in ways noticeable and unnoticeable.

    First Fatal Push, now this. You can't say they are ignoring 'eternal' formats! Grin

    Not Modern, but Saffron Olive is doing a video series on Legacy Leylines for one of his articles. He posted an instant decktech for it on the 5th, and now he is filming videos of it in play. Likely to see a spike on Serra's Sanctum and other necessary cards when the article comes out.

    Since the deck includes many many modern cards, including Leyline of the Void and Leyline of Sanctity, I'm mentioning it. If you need any cards from the deck, get them now before they see yet another spike.

    This just happens to be my Legacy deck, so I am excited. Prooooobably need to pick up more Runed Halos before they spike again though.

    facebook is a great place. many people are looking for things they do not list, like commons and uncommons.
    Your area likely has a fb page, may even have one dedicated to selling.

    I think you have that correct. We already have AV, no need to jump through hoops and lose card slots to get there. But if you want AV for other decks, the climb to $90 has begun. Buy now.

    Blood Moon is most often used to give a tierless deck a foothold against tiered decks. As such, it can wreck game 1, but any tiered deck has an answer in the sideboard. It takes a bit more to snag game 2 and/or 3.

    As Foretold allows Ancestral Vision to be cast (free) on turn 3. Cast As Foretold, cast Ancestral.
    Will this be a thing for Mill?

    So as I'm a casual player and don't really know all the in-depths of how certain mechanics work... am I correct to assume that As Foretold allows you to cast all these suspend cards with no casting cost (Restore Balance, Ancestral Visions, Lotus Bloom) for free?


    Yes. (unless Wizards announces something otherwise)


    Matt Tabak, the rules guy, already confirmed this is true on twitter. Ancestral Vision spike incoming? Will it go to $90?

    Gideon may be a trap, but Kytheon EDH decks just had a happy accident.

    Fatal Push keeps rising. With Modern masters being the Draft format pushed by stores (and why not? better profits) and Amonkhet release just a few weeks away, the incoming supply is dwindling.

    This card could be a spectacle in coming years. IDK how popular Aether Revolt was in terms of sales, but it was the 2nd set of the block (meaning less packs in prerelease, and but 1 pack in drafts) and Standard was the worst in ~ a decade according to many.

    All that shakes out to a strong possibility that Fatal Push becomes one of the 3 most valuable cards after rotation, along with Paradox Engine and Walking Ballista. And Paradox Engine may fall if it gets an EDH ban as expected.

    Who would have thought we'd ever see an Uncommon do that in this day of massive print runs?
