    A 3 mana enchantment for mill that asks you to attack. :/ Mill is dead until Rivals. Great. Awesome. fantastic.

    March of the Drowned should have targeted Zombies also. To hit Drowned cards. That would have been a nice reprint, but alas, poor regenerate is too complex for people.

    $15 for a draft kit where only 6 cards are legal otherwise? no thank you.

    putting them into a reuseable draft cube is a great idea though.

    Do you have the equivalent of a dollar store? Hobby/crafts stores do sell glass beads, nto at good prices though.

    You can make tokens out of anything or just print out some official ones.

    As a mill player, always looking for a way to trigger Archive Trap, this excites me! The search clause as translated says the player searches their deck, and forces the search too! I was already going to run Ghost Quarter, this is totally replaceable for a good while as testing.

    OH AND I GET A BASIC TOO?! FAN FRICKEN SWEET.

    What makes it nearly dead?

    The fact that the decks are degenerate unfun piles of counterspells?
    The fact that the decks are extremely costly?
    The fact that it has a lack of support from both Wotc & stores?

    That's a fairly good price to sell at. There really isn't too much of a push to play Mill in Modern just yet.

    I am actually just shocked that the price for a single copy of that any Surgical Extraction are both so high right now. They were both 5-8 a piece or so when I bought in for mill.

    Would you be sad if it stayed the same or went up?

    Whats with all the love for Bladewing in these recent releases?

    MiOcDoEnRiNc Masters 2017.1!

    And in closing, that really dumb purchase to buy a Expedition Fetchland and then trade that for a playset of Groves is looking even dumber. What will it drop to, $10 a piece?

    Post-Script! I did play some EDH today with a guy who did not have a foil Windfall. Because there was no foil Windfall. Until this set. I hope he is super excited about this news as much as I am. about seeing Genesis Wave in it. Which is a card I saw the brutal power of and gained some interest in during same game.

    Thus entering a similar increase in demand. Tarmogoyf never went down in value from its multiple printings to a degree that is relevant.


    Tarmogoyf at common would ruin Pauper.

    Seeing the chain veil on the site, thinking about what else could be in Iconic Masters, reflecting on what i recall about tarmogoyf prices, legendary planeswalkers, and how reprints don't help cost while in the shower had me lead to one thought. Gideon Tribal in Modern is going to be sick and awesome fun.

    Here's the main course - Reprinting a card only increases the supply. Whether the price goes up or down from secondary markets is based on its value as a playable card, collectible card, and its scarcity. That eliminates one aspect. There are more copies to go around, YAY. But as some discuss with Tarmogoyf reprints, now there are more people 1 or 2 copies, who may be thinking of building some decks with him. Thus entering a similar increase in demand. Tarmogoyf never went down in value from its multiple printings to a degree that is relevant.

    Atraxa from C16 was all about putting extra counters on stuff. A true build-around-me card for that format that has a good variety of decks you could come up with just based on the utility alone. The most obvious is the all too powerful planeswalker type. They live on counters as a life total. Atraxa gave them free counters. Woo. But there were only so many decent playable ones in her color. The decks are still ridiculosu fun/good/OP though. But limiting to just one in play of each was hard to struggle with in my own builds of Superfriends with her.

    The recent change to the planeswalker uniqueness rule makes it exactly the same as the current legend rule. Cool. A change. That is sometimes good. But this makes Atraxa and other Superfriends decks better by so much. Now you can build with multiples of the same character in their different unique forms, as notable seen in Gideon Tribal.

    With iconic masters having already a great library from what few cards I saw posted, and the veil on the site, I worry that if it is reprinted, its value, and all other decent PW cards will go up along with it. Barring the game and the playstyle further away from the budgeted player.

    So my theory is that by not reprinting it*, yes the price will go up some, but not as much as it would if it were reprinted, people learned about how you can build Jacetice League decks and wanted because of its RAW RIDICULOUS POWER. Inciting demand for a niche card and thus price increases.

    * I am unaware of any reprints of The Chain veil


    The "your post is long winded, explain it to me like I have attention disorders" summary; Reprinting puts the cards in minds of builders/buyers/investors. Change to particular rule makes PW more playable. By not reprinting it, most will not think about it and will not be inspired to shop for other pieces and thus, demand is not out of control for a gimmick deck, causing prices across the board to go up.

    Hah! My World Champs GCradle was valued at $20 when I traded for it.

    This is definitely going to be one of those cards that speculators speculate on.

    Should we start a for-fun pool for it's average price a week after release?

    Silver border cards are not legal in EDH. If you allow them, you may as well allow proxies of the original dual lands.
