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


    No.

    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?

    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.

    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 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.

    Quote from Voxxen
    Beast Within seems like a pretty good contender. Instant, kills it dead instead of temporarily exiling it, but gives them a token too. Also has the flexibility of nuking your own stuff for a 3/3.


    What's "Temporarily" Exiling ? O Ring is more like a PERMANENT answer.

    Name me one GOOD, PLAYABLE enchantment removal in T2.

    A 3/3 is strong. I don't think you've ever played with Beast Within or saw people playing with it .. There must be a reason it sees zero play, right?

    I don't like it. The body is too frail to be a meaningful threat without the pump, and the fact that you have to leave G open to pump it (or save from removal) hurts your gameplan more. Putrid Leech this isn't (or even Beastbreaker of Bala Ged).

    Were it a 2/2 at least.


    Up for this.

    Hey, I recently went to a store near my place I just found .. Apparently, they have a bunch of good cards at RIDICULOUS prices . I think they go by like AlphaBetaUnlimited.com or something, Dark Confidant $35 .. Force $85 or something like that, so I couldn't buy much since I couldn't talk them down in price. I did have a couple nice pickups like Mind's Eye for $1 .. But then I found a Korean Wrath of God in Black Border, it looks to be maybe EX or a little worse in condition, but they wanted $20 for it.

    What do you think it's worth?

    Doesn't this have severe issues with any instant removal/bounce on the souleater after powering it up?

    Besides that, looks like it plays mostly like a standard RDW?


    lol, good points. Apparently, I wouldn't pump the Souleater with life unless I have something like an Apostle's Blessing in hand to back it up, I would just pump it with mana. It still swings for a good amount, like 3 to 5.

    And yes, the back-up plan is like a regular RDW. If I can't get there with the One-Shot thing, I would simply have to get there by burning them. The point of this deck is taking advantage of the current environment with Caw-blade, Eldrazi Green, maybe even Valakut etc lacking removal. Yes, I would admit removal is an issue, but it hasn’t been that big to me.

    posted a message on All-In Red with Immolating Souleater, Kiln Fiend, and Assault Strobe
    Hello everyone!

    I was originally running a RDW list (yes, I netdecked on that one :)) with 'fair' creatures including Ember Hauler, Furnace Scamp and lots of burn spells with Shrine of the Burning Rage, it did get me 4-0 at FNM but unfortunately I felt the deck wasn't too fair and just didn't win fast enough. When the game drags on, I didn't think it can outlast a deck like Caw-blade. So I decided to tweak it myself and make it just "All-In". So I came up with this list (made by yours truly, no netdecking :tongue:).

    Short explanation of deck:

    Speaking of "unfair" creatures instead of fair ones like Spike-Shot Elder, Ember Hauler etc, Immolating Souleater is really one of my favourites. The card, is a completely unfair creature, which is a turn 3 win with Assault Strobe obviously, but it doesn't necessarily "need" the double strike boost. Against enemy opponents missing red, you could take advantage of its "free pump" ability and swing for a lot, then just burn them to death. Kiln Fiend, obviously no explanations, the guy is a bomb, dude, total bomb. I call him "the Boss" :D.

    This deck got me 1st place at Game Day out of 17 people, and 4th place at the TCQ the next day, out of 50 people. Unfortunately, I lost in the semi-finals to another RDW, who had sideboarded in his Dragon's Freakin' Claw. Mad Nevertheless, I am still very proud, this deck is uber-explosive, and would more often than not deal exactly 20 damage in 1 shot, or whatever the opponent's life points is :D.

    I have updated this deck from its original skeleton:

    I made changes like:

    +3 Apostle's Blessing
    -2 Forked Bolt
    -1 Land
    -1 Arc Trail
    +2 Dismember


    And I have tried things like Molten-Steel Dragon and Red Sun's Zenith, both 1-ofs won me a couple games, but I felt like they weren't good enough .. So I decided to move 2 Dismembers to maindeck, reinforcing the idea of All-In with no backup, making the deck even more explosive. Dismember also got me out of a lot of tough situations in Game 1. I think they are there to stay.

    I have made some amazing plays that had people just dropping their jaws:

    Situation 1)

    Game 2: (GW Blade or something..)

    Turn 3
    He has: Batterskull, Lotus Cobra, Tapped BoP on his field; I have Kiln Fiend.
    Me: Crush Batterskull, Dismember Cobra, Assault Strobe, Swing for 20!! Grin (Guy had Obstinate Baloth AND Baneslayer in his hand, if I didn't win, would have been screwed :tongue:)

    Situation 2)

    Game 1: Mono Black (Worst matchup, 11 Discard Spells and 10 Removal spells and Obliterators destroys me)

    He has: 2 Phyrexian Obliterators, 1 Tapped; I have: Immolating Souleater.
    Me: Tap 5 lands for mana. Searing Blaze Untapped Obliterator, Sac 3 lands; Arc Trail Obliterator, Sac 2 lands, deal him 1; Obliterator dies. With the only Red mana left, Assault Strobe Immolating Souleater, pay 14 life, swing for 16! 16+3+1 = 20 :D.

    Situation 3)

    Game 3: Eldrazi Green

    He has: Tumble Magnet, Untapped Acidic Slime, Primeval Titan in his hand and like 6 lands or something ... 20 Life. I have: Kiln Fiend, Immolating Souleater

    Me: Bolt him. Go to 17. Kiln Fiend 1 Pump. Dismember Acidic Slime, Kiln Fiend 2 Pump. Declare Attackers. He tries to tap Kiln Fiend, I Apostle's Blessing pro artifacts :rolleyes:, Kiln Fiend 3 Pump!. Fetch, find a land, pay 10 out of my remaining 11 life and use 1 red mana to pump Souleater, Swing for 10+7 = 17. That's 20 in 1 turn! Grin


    Unfortunately, with the banning of Stoneforge and Jace, Caw-Blade has died in Standard .. I beat Caw-Blade very badly with this deck .. I think it will be tough for me to beat Valakut and Vampires, because it's not as good of a match up..

    Any comments and suggestions welcomed! Redface

    God, for the last time dude, From the Vault Legends ONLY HAS CREATURES. NO KARAKAS

    Quote from Tails01
    I'm trying to read the larger picture here. Wizards has done a number of things lately that prove they don't care about Magic cards as investments.

    Staples like Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves in every Commander deck
    2x Stoneforge Mystics in an event deck (before any ban decisions)
    Reprinting the Titans
    Now this banned announcement

    I'm not complaining about this - but it really makes you stop and think before you invest in certain cards. Will Karakas be printed in the FTV Legends and tank the value of my playset? Will the next wave of Commander decks have different staples? Are there any safe investments not on the reserve list? Goyf? Bob? Fetches?

    I just completed my sword cycle last week and I'm not feeling as good about it as I did an hour ago, even though I really only play Legacy.

    short version: Wizards is taking larger strides to put a high power level in everyone's hands and it's hard to spend big money on playsets anymore...

    Quote from SpeedGrapher

    EDIT: @Traumerei
    if anyone bothered to read my other post that this was responding to which @traumerei clearly didn't he would have found out that I do play legacy. Then he wouldn't have made such a dumb uninformed comment, I applaud how little people are thinking about this. So 20 people all together within 100 miles of me play Legacy plus me, so 21, then figure a change of + or - 5 and then there are well 16 to 26 max that play legacy in 100miles. I don't care about the rest of the world, it's only extremely clear that so few people play legacy because the cards for them do not exist to trade for. While I can go play standard at a tournament virtually any night of the week and 15-50 different people show up showing me that standard has many people that play it, while legacy is dead.


    Why are Legacy cards so expensive if nobody plays Legacy? Legacy is obviously the better format, and it will only draw more players as time goes by. Blah blah blah, Legacy is dead, nobody plays Legacy, I can't care enough to read the rest of your comments since it's plain dumb for you to say "Legacy is dead" when you actually DO play Legacy. What's your point? What are you trying to prove here?

    Just because you don't play Legacy doesn't mean the whole world doesn't.

    Quote from SpeedGrapher
    Your comment is so insane it deserves a reply. No my local area is not the rest of the world. 200 miles??? and I get to go to a tournament at every game store in that area, Extremely not true. If I were to drive in a radius of 50miles a 1 hour drive one way for me, giving into account traffic and non highways. There are no LGS at all that hold Legacy tournaments ever. They never do and never will. If I were to increase that range to 100miles or 2.5-3 hours one way minimally, there would be 3 game stores that I know of that hold random legacy events when they feel like it. And I am not driving that far. How many people show up yeah about 20. Is it worth the drive though, noway it's not worth the drive, 5 hours of driving back and forth for a legacy tournament. That is my entry fee to a couple of booster drafts in standard that are close by.

    Quote from BaconBehemoth
    If you just play, then you shouldn't care about the monetary worth of your cards. You should look up the concept of a sunk cost. Basically it says there's no use crying over spilt milk. If you want to retain your invested value in Magic cards, buy stuff that's on the reserve list, otherwise, you're going to have to accept what comes. If you stopped playing Yu-gi-oh because the cards were all reprinted, then you weren't a player, you were an investor. Same thing here. Methinks thou doest protest too much.


    Naw, I wasn't very mad in the first place .. I was just surprised at people's attitudes .. I guess most people commented here just don't hang out in the Trade forum much . I disagree with you in the way you said that if I want my cards to retain value, I am not a player, but an investor <-- that is inaccurate to say the least. I don’t know if you are familiar with the idea of being a student and only make a couple hundred bucks a week only to spend most of it on MTG, but for me, I don’t need my cards to go up, but I just want them to have a certain salvage value that is not like “nothing”. In the end, I don’t expect to make money from selling old cards, just getting some costs back and some of that hard earned cash. Sunk cost is an idea I dislike the most, although I understand it's true. But I believe sunk cost would only mean something when let's say, MTG is dead. Then I can't blame anything, I can just say, oh, the game is dead, my money is gone, THAT's sunk cost.

    Reprints hurts, in that it disrespects me for saving up pretty much every cent I have to buy that card I want—imagine what I’d feel when that 10 year old commander player open up Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed in FtV Legends a couple months from now? That’s basically puking in my face. Hey, I am not rich, I love that card so I paid $130 for it, and now even a 10-year old can get one? That’s really nasty if you ask me .

    Well, I guess I can also say I'm stupid for buying that card since it was like, $5 a year ago . I guess I just came back to MTG at the wrong time =/ .

    P.S. I am picking up Heavenly Inferno for kicks of just trying out EDH. The idea of playing the general that puts angels demons dragons into play is pretty sick.

    That was just an example, yes, there isnt any $20 card. YET. BUT, Remember the Power creep started with azorious herald, trygon predator, then it turned into baneslayer and titans.

    And my man, u r wrong. Magic IS NOT an investment. It’s just a game. I don’t make much money, and for me to shell out so much to play Legacy, it really would piss me off if they reprint those cards so others can get those for like ¼ of the price I paid for. How would u feel ? I have to work for my money, it’s not like I can just throw my money away. I don’t invest in Magic, I don’t use the game to make money – I just play. That’s all I do.
    Quote from urzassedatives
    Uhh, there are no 20 dollar cards in these.
    Sry2say.

    Sol ring doubled in value ONLY because of Commander. (During Shards block, it hovered around 10 dollars)
    It was only going to go up more if they didn't include it here.
    Since it isn't played in ANY sanctioned format, its a win-win to reprint it here.

    It still has just as much play value, and if you were expecting Sol Rings to be an 'investment', well, that speaks on your poor judgement. Nobody liked to pay 20 for them, but that doesn't mean they SHOULD be 20.

    Edit:
    So you are basically overreacting over something that isn't going to happen?
    Ok.

    how greedy can u edh ppl get ? "reprint a legacy staple or two"?? "disappointed?" u guys have any idea how much competitive legacy players spent on purchasing those while u ppl can just sit on ur arses and wait and hope for a cheap reprint? it is totally disgusting. I am already shocked at how much value these stupid boxes contain, and if they keep doing this, i will have to sell all my cards. it is part of the reason why i quit yugioh 8 years ago - this just reprinted freakin' EVERYTHING . excuse me, i am not damn rich and i don't like spending 20$ on a card and seee it becoming $3 and even noobs can get in a precon. that's just damn stupid.

    Well I guess we are not really talking about just money cards so I guess I've got:

    1x Wood Elemental <-- Oh God!!!!!! You're not gonna believe it -- Some trader GAVE it to me.
    1x Loyal Retainer (Traditional Chinese, I only like Chinese version of P3K cards) <-- Pulled out of a P3K pack
    1x Imperial Seal (Traditional Chinese) <-- Love the Flavour Text
    1x Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed <-- Regardless if he's reprinted in FtV, I'm holding on to this guy
    1x Signed Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale
    1x Complete Set of Revised Dual Lands, all NM <-- Some of them the most gorgeous of its kind Smile

    Some other fun stuff:

    1x Mishra's Workshop Artist Proof
    1x Foil Stifle
    1x Japanese Foil Stifle
    1x Foil Linvala, Keeper of Silence
    1x Foil Sensei's Divining Top
    1x Foil Vendilion Clique

    Alas, it's not going to be worth a playset of Mind Sculptors in a year and half .. maybe never . I mean, Mind Sculptors will still be hot in Extended/Legacy/Vintage.

    nice. did they test it with sneak attack? ;P

    they seem to be printing a lot of cards with casting costs that don't matter recently... particularly progenitus via natural order and this via tinker will remain a headache to everyone in all sorts of formats


    Exactly what I was thinking.

    This is going into my Sneaky Tell deck for Turn 1 win .

    Standard players go to magiccards.info and look for "Sneak Attack". Please don't talk about Ramp or Shape Anew .. It makes me sad .

    Seriously .. Why do people think this is ridiculous and "pushing it" ? Black should be the best at removal . NOT white . Please compare Doom Blade and Go for the Throat to Path to Exile -- They're strictly inferior to the latter. Destroy VS Remove. 2 CC VS 1 CC. Restrictions VS NO restrictions.

    Really ? What has black become ? What happened to the days when B was dominating like no tomorrow ? Yawgmoth's Will? Necropotence? Diabolic Edict ? Dark Ritual ? Demonic Tutor ? Even Damnation and Dark Confidant ?

    Seriously, there has been a time before UB became popular that Black wasn't seen in standard AT ALL. I read through all Top 8 deck lists, the only "Black" card they played is Bojuka Bog in side board. Really ? What has the mightiest of colors become?

    I welcome Wizards for doing this. This is just a mere good start though. Black needs a comeback.

    Quote from ErhnamDjinn
    Id still go with Emrakul, this guy can still be bounced , stp'd , Pte'd , warren weirded. Emrakul attacks it destroys most likely everything in the board at that time which would be turn 2-4 and cant be targeted by instant speed spells. Ask Vintage why they started using the leviathan over DSC.


    Lol true that . But I was hypothesizing on a hand that is not even hard to pull off and goes on to win on Turn 1 (assuming u go first). Emrakul of course is still the auto include, but this guy might have a place in Sneaky Tell besides Woodfall Primus .....

    Guys .. Nobody saw that it can swing for lethal Turn 1 or 2 with Sneak Attack in Legacy ? It beats Emrakul in that deck !!

    Turn 1: Lotus Petal, Sac and add R.
    Play Ancient Tomb. Tap for 2 Colorless.
    Play Seething Song, add RRRRR .
    Put down Sneak Attack for 3R.
    Pay R, put down Blightsteel Colossus. Swing for game !
