Apr 20, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from LuckyJoe1988 »Quote from Manite »Even if they legally could or can do that, there's still the spirit of the promise itself. They find any way to cirvumvent the R-List, they're breaking that promise in spirit by exploiting technicalities and coming off as insincere. The only way Wizards is ever going to abolish the List is if every living collector collectively grants them their blessing to do so.
So, if you want the List to go away, you need to write up a petition, track down a good majority of collectors, and somehow convince them to sign a petition that allows Wizards to reprint valuable cards they've been holding on to and trading for years.
And if by a miracle that actually happened, I'd be fine with the List going away. But then, I'm not a collector.
WOTC would not need the permission of every collector, let alone any of them for that matter. Finding loopholes or not, they have changed their minds on details of the reserved list multiple times throughout the years without anyone's consent , and all they need to do is come out with an announcement that they are taking it away or not, etc. It is as simple as that to reverse it, but the process in particular that would lead to that notion would not be for obvious reasons as you were alluding to. WOTC is well aware of the problems that the list has caused over the years and I am pretty sure if they could, they'd reverse time and take it all back, contrary to what collectors back then would have said of them.
Exactly. Wizards will get rid of the reserve list eventually. It comes down to the following statement:
Amount of money generator by reprint reserve list cards > the collector's money they would loss because collector's would not purchase new product
Wizards does not make any money of the secondary market directly.
Mar 29, 2017These cards look AWESOME! Egyptian themed text and Nicol Bolas horns. Force of Will, Counterspell, Dark Ritual, Worship, Pact of Negation, Wrath of God, Chain Lightning, Maelstrom Pulse, and Vindicate are one I am definitely going be looking for.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
If you all going hate them than I will LOVE the low prices
I will also gladly take all your copies for a few bucks.

And here is the rarity upgrade. And I think it is a bad decision to do so.
A lot of reprints might be great etc. But in an expensive set like this and rarity upgrades like this none of the prices will go down like it happened in CON2 or the fethces in Khan(s).
Seriously you are suprised by upgrade to mythic... We all knew it was going happen because it happened to Tarmogoyf Dark Confidant
Feb 28, 2017I am a little surprised he made the set was kind of expecting to be held back until Eternal Masters 2. Upshifted to mythic is no surprise at all. We all knew it was going happen because it happened to Dark Confidant.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Oct 4, 2016My group keeps arguing about Panharmonicon.Posted in: Magic Rulings
I say that if you have Panharmonicon in play and cast Wood Elf. Wood Elf enters the battlefield putting it's trigger on the stack. The trigger resolves and Panharmonicon checks and see that the Wood Elf was in play and duplicates the effect.
Jun 22, 2016Draymore posted a message on New Emrakul: What are you feeling about it and why?Posted in: New Card DiscussionQuote from Ryperior74 »My thoughts
This emrakul has been more underrated than any card on this forum
I will talk about the cons and counter spell those
#1 can be destoryed by sorrery speed spells: before you trash them when you control there turns? No you use their sorcerys on their own stuff stuff
#2 you can counter this emrakul: first of all 80% of the time that's only a fear if you facing a deck with blue. Second of all you get the mind control turn countered or not because it's a cast trigger. (Except if they got a "you have hexproof" enchantment on the field ofcoarse but those are rare to see on battles.)
#3 only protection from instants and not hexproof: correct but however excluding counter spells almost all of the instants that can get emrakul off the battlefield can't be used, and that's most of the best removals. And let's not forget other stuff you can bring out to add hexproof to Newrakul (especially if you reduced the cost to cast her)
#4 There's no way we will get the cost reduced to under 9: I'll do a standard one (a will do a GR deck
Artifact and creature at the same time. hedron crawler(-2)
Land. Evolving wilds or Sanctum of Ugin (-1)
Instant. Expedite or Kozilek's return or Warping wail(-1)
Enchantment. most likely Oath of Nissa (-1)
Creature. any weak begining creature (if no hedron crawler) (-1)
Artifact. Hedron Archive (if no hedron crawler) (-1)
Planeswalker. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Chandra, Flamecaller(ps the 0 locality will help) (-1)
Sorcery. Explosive vegetation or Ruin in their wake or Animist's awakening or Sylvan Scrying (-1)
Hmm looks pretty easy to reduce the cost immensely low to me.
And plus you can throw in these for other formats
Eye of Ugin (-2)
Urza's incubator (-2)
conduit of ruin (-2)
Cloud key (-1)
#5 they get the extra turn: I'm pretty sure most of the time their hands will be trash on that turn, and also the draw will most likely be a land because of odds, in other words it's not exactly an extra turn if you got rid of everything that can save them, plus you could combo in EDH with Stranglehold or Ugin's Nexus
#6 emrakul can be killed quickly: Kozilek, the great distortionhas the same problem but not complaining? And the counter thing is only for emergencies only. and it has to be the exact same cost as the spell.
#7 just flying and trample: I see you didn't read the flying part again and they need flyers and a army to kill emrakul, and not to mention trample makes the extra damage slice threw the blockers. And I'm pretty sure you sac his/her dudes or killed them by false attack on the mindcontroll turn.
So basicly is this Emrakul, the promised end is way better than some of you think.
The only thing people seem to be acting like, QQ not Annihilator 6. We know that annihilator won't be used. Using the opponents turn to swing into him is HUGE. You can totally screw up the board. Also he has TONS of flavor.
Unlike Ulamog I feel the only weakness is he is a little more situational.
In other words he is really STRONG.

May 26, 2016I noticed look at the number crunch today that we will not be getting Zenddikar fetches.Posted in: Rumor Mill Archive
The Proof is:
241 Maze of Ith
242 Mishra's Factory
Their is no room for Marsh Flats so the cycle is NOT in.
Basically WTF Wizards.

Mar 28, 2016Draymore posted a message on What cards do you think should be banned or unbanned in Modern in the next announcement? (4/4/16 update)I feel like the Eye should get banned.Posted in: Modern Archives
I feel like for unbanning they should allow everything that was not in the first 2 banning. Have the change occur after modern season and keep a close eye on star city modern events. Then before the next modern season ban a few cards if need. I feel that there are too many cards on the banned list and a lot of them should be looked at hard "(i totally agree with artifact lands and cards like preordain).
