    I might be a bit sad if they up but I doubt that will happen. The only reason Glimpse is that expensive is because the supply is extremely low which IMA should, hopefully, address.

    Imagine my surprise when I found out my $3.5 Surgical Extractions became $20 a piece.

    Anyone have any idea how low will Glimpse the Unthinkable drop? I just sold a playset for $21 each expecting them to settle at around $10 or so. I sure hope I didn't screw myself over.

    Anyone know if Fraying Sanity is seeing modern experimentation? It seems really good and there was a huge spike in price over this weekend on it. I think anyone playing Modern probably figured out Solemnity pretty fast, but if that guy is taking off I think I'm going to go grab the mill staples because that card looks like it just brought the T4 KO mill deck into existence.


    Fraying Sanity is turning into a more "build around me" card with experimental shells in both UBx and UGx. Still no consensus on how the card should be played, OTK with Traumatize vs. control variation of UBx. Regardless, I don't see any of the mill staples going up. After all, the only expensive cards in mill are Glimpse the Unthinkable and the manabase. One last thing, a single reprint is enough to crash any one single mill staple.

    Watching the 2016 Magic World Championship Finals, above or below work as well since Márcio Carvalho had his graveyard below the library.

    It is indeed Bolas carving his victory over the gatewatch.


    I like how it shows everyone's defeat, shame you can't actually see any of that in the card art.
    regardless, another $200+ down the drain for me.

    Well, the first one i encounted were actually no holo stamps at all, but the image of the holostamps was printed onto the card. You spot it as soon as you have the cards in hand, but a friend bought them over ebay, and due to the light on the photos you couldn´t tell. Easy to spot.

    The Second one are real Holo-Images, but not from wizards. They just tagged some random holosticker on it, either with an emty holo-backround with no image in front, or with some random image, not a magic symbol. but again, too many people just look if its there, and don´t check itself.
    Also easy to spot, if you spent more than a passing glace on them.

    Last the ones you mentioned, getting of a holostamp and tagging it to another card. But it the card themself is clearly fake, that isn´t that convincing. Well, if the stamp is undamaged, and they have a good glue to put it one, you still have to check the card itself.

    All in all, holo stamps are no more secure than the ones already in place. its just one more where they can do something wrong.
    Then again, doing holo-sticker is no black magic either, so i don´t think this is really a long-term security-feature.

    Also notice, that some fakes don´t have a holo stamp at all, but the emty place were it belongs. After so many real cards had the same issue, i thing they just gave it a try (as some people don´t believe they would print a fake and then don´t get a holostamp, so it must be genuine with the sticker missing...)


    I think you just explained why people should go for holostamped versions. They are safer since it is easier to spot the fakes.

    Keep in mind, Bolas is strictly interested in a 4/4 army for some reason. Ones that die to a single Languish.

    Solid card all around but did it really need to be a mythic rare?

    Thanks. It's an excellent fit for my EDH deck so it might still be worth buying.

    Beautiful! Any idea how much this one's going to cost? $50? Always wanted to get one, this might give me the push needed.

    Pay 2 life AND sac a creature? Looks like Wizards didn't want another Griselbrand in the game.

    Funny how an indestructible god can be defeated by one without indestructible. I guess, The Scorpion God put -1/-1 counters on Rhonas until he died.
    We now know that Bolas can to Amonkhet 60 years ago so right after the mending? Before fighting Ajani in Alara?

    TBH, this card makes wanna go with the UB control variation. Ditch cards like Visions of Beyond and all white cards for more reactive cards.
    I'm leaning towards something like this:


    Obviously, it's not tested and I can't say it will perform better than other variants but Fraying Sanity feels like it would be better suited for late mill strategies.

    Unfortunately, Wizards are very cautious about giving mill powerful tools because no one likes seeing their deck getting milled, Wizards probably rates mill strategies as less interactive than draw-go which why we often get mediocre tools. If this was 2 mana, it would've been much more playable. Sill, it is worth trying out.

    We just got a new toy to test out.

    Fraying Sanity 2U
    Enchantment Aura curse
    Enchant player
    At the beginning of each end step, enchanted player puts the top X cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard, where X is the total number of cards put into his or her graveyard this turn.

    Anyone think this could make the cut. 3 mana passive enchantment, kinda similar to Sphinx's Tutelage but synergizes with milling effects more.
    turn 3 this into turn 4 glimpse gives us 20 cards.
