    What a bunch of stinkeroo planeswalker reprints. Couldn't we have gotten, like, one of Ajani's cards, or a Garruk that wasn't just reprinted in C19, or a black planeswalker that doesn't suck?



    is two years ago “just reprinted” now?


    When something is worthless and better equally worthless options exist... well yeah

    I get the idea is to improve the deck yourself and to find neat synergistic cards, but at a certain point its just lazy. Why put thought or creativity into it if its going to sell regardless.

    Its a well done precon, way more where these things should be headed, but it couldve been better with just a hair more effort in terms of reprints


    So first it was a frequency complaint, now it’s a power complaint. Do you even know what you’re complaining about or are you *****ing just to *****?


    for reprints, the two go hand in hand. For Mana Crypt, a powerful card with tons of demand, a reprint every 2 years like clockwork would be nice. There will never be more Mana Crypts than demand for them, not as long as EDH exists. for Sol Ring, it's cheap, but if EDH keeps growing at this rate, if they stopped printing it for two years there might be a small demand problem, because it's such a powerful card. If a card has plenty of demand, 2 years is a lot longer than for a card with no demand. If that Garruk was not printed again for another 5 years, it would still be a $2-3 card.


    Time has always been relative, and any Magic player knows the relationship between power/demand/reprint need

    LRR should not get anymore spoilers, in any product, for at LEAST a year, that is perfectly fair. the other 4 would have been spoiled like 7 hours ago, and this is one of the most high profile spoilers of the year

    I'm disappointed in how quickly this turned into a fight that's not even about the deck.



    That Dragon reprint yay! now I will have one for 'Whoops, no Friends!'

    it's fine I think, nowhere near as good as the Boros one, but fine, with a few cards i definitely want to scavenge for other decks. Unless I am missing something spicy, are the reprints really lacking compared to the other one? I was going fast on my break, but I didn't see anything most expensive than Blasphemous Act I don't think?

    hot damn. so many good new cards, a couple EXCELLENT reprints, and I had misplaced my Myr Battlesphere, so that's nice to see for sure.



    nothing as broken as the free counterspell from last year, but comparing to what red and white got last year...this is REALLY good

    Counterspelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll.

    I bet you it will be rare. I'm sorry there were other things too? Hmm...

    'buster




    It won't be rare, because that wouldn't sell packs. It's probably uncommon. but if they said 'Counterspell is now Standard legal, but we aren't printing any more copies', I can't imagine that even that would push the cheaper versions over $2, there are simply too many printed.



    Shardless Agent though, that's probably mythic :p

    i don't think we are going to see much more that interacts with exile, I think it's a lot more likely that they are setting the stage because we have 2 Innistrad sets coming up and there is something graveyard themed that is absolutely no joke. they learned their lesson after having Vehicles and no artifact hosers waiting for them in Kaladesh

    Soooo.... they broke the storm scale


    Storm is any spell, this is only for instant and sorceries. See Thousand-Year Storm.




    You are technically correct, but if you watch a Storm deck go off, there isn't much difference in practice, it will rarely come up

    the card draw art makes me smile and i hope it gets an art card <3

    but the spell is infuriating. WotC really struggles with the idea of 'card advantage'. it's not just about DRAWING cards, it's about if i us a spell slot to draw cards, I want to draw more cards than my opponent, not make it just as good as them drawing 3 for free. if each opponent drew ONE card it would be much better.

    I definitely don't see a whole ton of Harry Potter, I see the same basic tropes and university window dressing Rowling drew on. The sweet little girl who is smarter than her older peers and very excited to learn predates coed schools being the norm. The thing with looking at this stuff and seeing Harry Potter is that Rowling really had very few new ideas. Her characters were charming and really carried it, and a few of the details were nice, but as someone who absolutely loves those books even now and has been reading them since i was a child, she really didn't have hardly any ideas that were original even then.



    I need that Stadium, I want to build something stupid with it!
