    I'm like a lot of you. I have a ton of money cards like Jace, the Mind Sculptor and the book insert Jace Beleren but if I were keeping one card at this point it would still be my 8th ed. Beast of Burden because he was my first rare ever.

    I've had a few Magic dreams but the one that sticks out in my mind was one in which my girlfriend was a full on pyromancer (Jaya and chandra mixed kind of get up) and I was a Necromancer running zombies. The two of us dueled like you would if Magic duals were actually turn based. I'm not exactly sure how I won but I do remember having a few gravecrawlers out and Dark Ritual was involved.

    Maybe just a new product name for the Booster-Battle-Packs ?

    My thought after seeing still how many of the battle packs are still sitting on shelves is that this is a replacement for them. They were a good idea but with ZERO incentive for players with any kind of experience to buy them I wouldn't be surprised if their sales are dismal.

    I buy stuff like the dual decks to play against my girlfriend at times because she can get really discouraged playing against my normal decks. If this really was something like 90 cards split into two card pools for two 40 card decks and the contents were semi random then yeah I would probably buy one of those instead of packs because then the two of us could play and one or both of us could get new cards.

    The battle packs were just junk cards and I have thousands of those to make decks out of if I ever want to teach that way.

    The 20 extra cards have an explanation, they upped the uncommon count.

    I like the idea of changing up how packs are done but I feel like the uncommon number in packs is good.

    A few changes I would like to see is.
    1. No more "add cards", just give us a token that could be usefull and put an add on the back rather then something with adds on both sides that's just going to end up in the trash.
    2. Tokens getting a rarity symbol. It would help with knowing why some tokens just aren't coming up in packs.

    and unlikely but
    3. get rid of the land in every pack and maybe lands now have a chance of showing up instead of a common or something like that.

    Mine Excavation
    Oath of the Ancient Wood
    Serra's Sanctum
    Sterling Grove
    Ward of Bones (each would count twice)

    I really don't feel like pulling up the video yet again because these type of threads pop up just about every block.

    NO, we will not see another "everything is _____" block until there are major changes in who is in charge of Magic because people like Maro were around and saw how poorly Alara Reborn was received (I personally liked it but I got the feeling he was talking more about tournament players). The example he gave was icecream for supper every night. You just don't want to do it because it's just too much of a good thing.

    As for enchantment lands, what did we learn from Artifact lands?

  • posted a message on Colorless mana should have a symbol.
    Here's the thing that the OP was trying to explain.

    Look at Elvish Mystic The mana that it costs and the mana it produces are equal. Both are green mana.
    Now look at Palladium Myr. The mana that it costs is 3 of any color so
    are just a fraction of the different ways to PAY for it.
    But when you tap it, what gets added to your mana pool? 2 that's it, there's only one result so the two things are really not equal.

    Is it a problem, not really but a change in it could be a good thing.

    Not sure how you missed that they were missing the oversized cards since those are right in the front of the package but most stores like Walmart and Target see a lot of theft in those areas so you shouldn't have a problem getting a new one.

    I see what he's saying and it answers many of you.

    Cards like Blightsteel Colossus would still have costs like 11
    But lands like Shimmering Grotto would look more like "t add @ to your mana pool" so that mana costs of any color would stay the same but colorless mana being added would be something different.

    I've never encountered any real trouble with the difference between the two but then again we didn't have trouble with into play versus play a spell and those are now into the battlefield and cast so wizards does sometimes do stuff to solve problems that aren't really there.

    He said three. Neither of your examples fit the bill. Scars block had two and Garruk from DKA wasn't black in any way besides flavorfully. Mono-black couldn't play him without a splash, mono-green could without a splash. He was mono-green.

    My point more then anything was that Wizards can include any number of planeswalkers with whatever colors they need to be in a set and that there hasn't been a good balance since the first five were printed. Yes standard does have to be a factor as all these walkers will be there together but as it has been pointed out we have some fairly creature heavy PW's so running all of them together would probably be a really bad idea.

    If you think Garruk, the veil-cursed isn't a black card then you might want to check out Pact of Negation, Evermind, or Kobolds of Kher Keep.
