    I ordered online and received one of the decks at my door this afternoon in the states. They have been distributed at least partially.

    One suggestion is to see if the LGS in your area have League. I've found that since league is new every set, people are a little more loose on competition, especially if losing allows them to "buy more packs". On average, a league can cost you 10-16 boosters over 6 weeks which isn't cheap but not astronomical. Yeah, some sets are not very good and there is quite a bit of luck in what you get, but its a different experience every set, playing which cards you might not otherwise. Sometimes you'll even be surprised with a build like mill you'd never play and have fun with it.
    The other neat thing about league is its adhoc in many places so, 9-11 PM every Friday night is a good 2 hrs that fits with family schedule better for me.

  • posted a message on M20 will have Friday pre-release
    Also remember, July 5th is a Friday the day after an US holiday. Vacations are going to be high that day with many companies even giving it as a holiday.
    The bigger question is will there be enough product for demand. With Spark and Dominaria, my LGS has been very tight on product when it gets to the last events of the weekend.

  • posted a message on GRN/RNA Guild Theme Boosters
    I opened too many of these Guild Theme packs to know they were a terrible deal. Every one I opened was a single rare. That along with ~5-6 uncommons was just not worth the ~2X price of a booster. Yeah, it was nice they were on color point, but unless you are playing pack wars with them, felt they were overpriced.

    Quote from Gashnaw »
    I still stand by using ur dragon. Fhat -1 to cost is a BIG deal.

    I run three color dragon's using UR just like Gashnaw advocates. My manabase has 1 source of white and 1 source of blue to go with a lantern. The odds of ever casting UR are very low, but he helps accelerate the rest of deck.

    It should have been a gate for sure.

    However, it should have also had:

    If you control 3 gates, all gates get:
    Tap : Create one mana of any color a land you control can produce.

    Make ALL gates color flexible with this card

  • posted a message on Ultimate Masters Box Pulls!
    Only ended up with a 1/2 box so no topper for me.
    Cavern of Souls
    Demonic Tutor
    Celestial Colonnade
    Through the Breach FOIL
    Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
    So 5/12 packs had Rare/mythic over the $10.

    What shocked me was the JUNK rares included. The other 8 rares COMBINED for $11 in value.
    Why reprint rares that are going to for 12-50 cents in an "ULTIMATE" set you're trying to get $14 a pop for.
    I count 22 rares out of 60 that are at/under $1 on TCG currently.
    Guess that's why the Median is $6 on rares/mythics and Average is $15. Feast or famine.

  • posted a message on So is Boros just terrible this time around?
    Maximum velocity worked great in that you can get two activations from it.

  • posted a message on So is Boros just terrible this time around?
    Last night in 42 player draft, 4 of top 8 were boros. Go small, go fast, crush heads. Also pickup flying Pegasus when you get a chance. Went 4-1-1 with zero rates in boros since one other in my pod. My loss was to another boros since he had lower curve, more take heart and was faster.

  • posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 9-17 two mythics
    I'd want a judge ruling on this. Warleader says the "Cats" are put in play attacking, but in this case it's Angels instead.

    It's the same thing for Najeela, the Blade-Blossom If you could turn 1/1 warriors into a fleet of 4/4 angels attacking, it's insane.

    When you read Desecrated Tomb, it says "Creature CARDS" so no, tokens are not CARDS so it does not trigger.

  • posted a message on Core 19, Yay or nay???
    After playing League heavily, I really like this set almost as much as Dominaria. Yes there are some garbage rares and mythics, but when aren't there.
    However, there are some many different styles of decks you can build out of Core19 limited, lots of variety. I've got a legit UB Mill deck going (Turn 6 mill) and at the same time a GW agro deck. Met many BW and RW decks as well. That isn't even counting all the people going three color for an Elder dragon. When you can sit down in a night for 30 games of league, and have 6-7 different styles of decks to verse, its a good night.
