    Alright, I'll play this game.

    Solemn Simulacrum

    Number of new, interesting cards:

    Druidic Satchel
    Sphinx of Uthuun
    Garruk, Primal Hunter
    Chandra, the Firebrand



    No. It isn't. And not one of these - or any of the ones you also listed - are really all that exciting.


    No.

    My short list:

    Grim Lavamancer
    Ponder
    Solemn Simulacrum
    Oblivion Ring
    Goblin Grenade
    Smallpox

    Visions of Beyond
    Vengeful Pharaoh
    Lord of the Unreal

    I think this set is A LOT better than M11. I don't understand what all the whining is about. I mean, what were you people thinking? Force of Will? Jace the Mind Sculptor? Stifle? Time Spiral?

    Let's count the number of good reprints:

    Grim Lavamancer
    Ponder
    Solemn Simulacrum
    Oblivion Ring
    Auramancer
    Gideon Jura
    Incinerate
    Mana Leak
    Goblin Grenade
    Archon of Justice
    Smallpox
    Rampant Growth

    Number of new, interesting cards:

    Visions of Beyond
    Rune-Scarred Demon
    Vengeful Pharaoh
    Sphinx of Uthunn
    Lord of the Unreal
    Timely Reinforcements
    Grand Abolisher
    Angelic Destiny
    Skinshifter
    Adaptive Automation
    Druidic Satchel
    Phantasmal Image
    Swiftfoot Boot
    Garruk, Primal Hunter
    Chandra, the Firebrand
    Jace, Memory Adept

    Is that really not enough?

    Like REALLY?

    IN ADDITION, you get ALL the TITANS back. (I'm not a fan, so I didn't list them as good reprints)

    I mean what did M11 have more than this? Ho Hum Fauna Shaman? Obstinate Baloth (ROFL really?) Cultivate? BANESLAYER???

    Get real people, this is a core set, this is for keeping Standard together -- and introducing the game to beginners. This is not about making a huge splash, and for me, this is A LOT of new, decent materials already.

    Who agrees with me?

    Time Spiral, anyone?


    I'm fairly sure that everyone here has mentioned there's something called the Reserve List.

    I wish this would have costed 1BB and came with a 0/1 body.

    Then it would have been (very) interesting.

    Ever heard of Grim Tutor?

    I wish it was black mana and came with a 4/4 body.


    Haha .. See? This is the only man who knows the point Grin

    You have no sense of reality, do you?


    Exactly my thought ..

    Quote from NYRambler
    For some reason, I see it being a card like this:

    Time Sphinx
    4UUU
    7/7 Flying Hexproof
    When Time Sphinx enters the battlefield, Target Player takes an extra turn after this one.


    There's absolutely no way they'll ever print something like that. Venser will make the user lose all friends.

    Quote from Outlaw_DJ
    If Time Warp is Reprinted Pyromancer's Ascension will be a huge problem. Ponder, Preordain, gitaxian probe, and Time Warp. Sounds completely awful.


    Sounds completely AWESOME.

    You wanna know what awful is ? See Caw-blade.

  • posted a message on PSA vs. BGS Grading, Any Thoughts?
    Get a Jeweler's Loop and a Black light . Those are more than enough for determining if your cards are real. Look for the circle and dot patterns on the cards and the blue line ..

  • posted a message on Karakas Artist Proof Signed
    kiljo, I would like to tell you that you are incorrect. Artist Proofs are mostly worth less than the real copy of the card -- since they cannot be played, and have very low demand. Artist Proofs of Karakas and Tolaria were sold for $40 combined for numerous times on EBay, and I wasn't able to get rid of my Karakas Artist Proof for like months. Some guy finally offered me $50 for it trade value, that's how I got rid of it.

    I really hope it would be Time Warp haha, it would really put Pyromancer Ascension over the top, I mean, it's my favourite deck and I've been a huge fan ever since I saw it, but I never got to play it with Time Warp ..

  • posted a message on [M12] No white lord
    I guess they thought O Ring was already enough to put white over the top .

    I just cant believe people would list on the "possible list for the last card" things like Time Walk and Tinker. Like really ? You are expecting them to reprint Power 9? And you are expecting them to print Tinker with Blightsteel Colossus in the format? Like REALLY???

    I just have no idea why everyone wants a reprint of Force of Will for standard. I mean what good is it for STANDARD really ? In a slow format with no such thing as "Combo" decks not to mention First-Turn-KOs Force is definitely not necessary at all -- not to mention it is obviously card DISADVANTAGE which is like EVERYTHING standard NOT want. It makes absolutely ZERO sense for Force to exist in this format, seriously -- And we do NOT have enough cards to remove. Seriously, if you want your Forces for the Eternal Format might as well just wait for a reprint eventually, probably a premium deck or whatever .. Seriously .. Stop with the Force, Force chant ..

    As for Stifle .. What good is Stifle for standard again ?? No Dreadnought, no Storm effects, no killer Enter-Battlefield effects now that SFM is banned .. What are we gonna get Stifle to do ? Stifling fetchlands, Gatekeeper of Malakir for 3 more months?

    Please get more reasonable people.
