    Sadly there's no Legacy event, and the weekend just cost soo much -__- .. I mean, $60 for weekend + $40 parking 3 days, that's $100 already + the events are not cheap at all ..

    My question is, we have to pay just to get in, correct? Let's say if we just want to do a draft, we still have to pay entry for the whole day?

    Alright, I'll play this game.

    Reprints:
    Titans
    Grim Lavamancer
    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

    Possible Constructed playables:

    Visions of Beyond
    Vengeful Pharaoh
    Lord of the Unreal
    Timely Reinforcements
    Grand Abolisher
    Skinshifter
    Adaptive Automation
    Druidic Satchel
    Phantasmal Image
    Swiftfoot Boot

    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

    Exactly my thought ..

    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.
