    Classic short term vs. long term planning. It will catch up to Hasbro/WotC sooner than later. Pretty soon the whales will get full enough, take their money elsewhere and the whole thing will collapse. Maybe then we can reclaim the game via an ownership that is driven by fans and a playerbase. I'd like to also bring up that if you buy 100 packs either sealed or the singles from this set you are part of the problem, not the solution.



    The entire global economy has been built around short term gains instead of long term success over the last 40 years or so. A company will cut off its nose to sell it for a quick cash injection. The entire model is based on the delusion of never-ending growth with every quarter’s growth outpacing the previous quarter. If a company needs to invest in itself for long term success but has to have a few bad quarters or years to do it then the market loses faith in them and they’ll probably have their value diminished to next to nothing.

    For the record, people can draft a set focused exclusively on reprints if they wanted. It would be a mess,
    But they could.



    We’re beyond this “boosters are for drafting” excuse now that Collector’s Boosters exist. Why is it fine for those packs of reprints to not be made for draft but a set that exists to get reprints into people’s hands must be hamstrung by being a draft set?

    Every commander product should auto-include Arcane Signet.

    So you can destroy a creature for 2B or any nonland permanent for WBG?

    posted a message on Alleged Ikoria Box Toppers, leaked from a brazilian LGS
    It would be wild to me if they did this weird crossover just for Box Toppers and made Space Godzilla a legendary creature but Godzilla proper isn’t legendary. Makes no sense. Clearly they would have designed creatures to be stand-ins for film kaiju, so making the Godzilla stand-in a basic creature is like sacrilege.

    Fake. Formatting is wrong, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that art before, King Caesar isn’t a cat, and WotC isn’t going to pay to license these characters.

    The only way to stop them from this is to STOP BUYING THIS PRODUCT AT THIS PRICE POINT!

    Players need to show fiscal discipline and refrain from spending on these. Then it will stop. Problem is 95% of the Magic Market has the backbone of an elderly Jellyfish and will talk about not buying then go right out and buy it.


    The biggest problem here is that these are a limited print product. Ten per LGS at most, which means a very limited supply. You’re never going to get everyone to forgo buying this awful product. I’ll bet a lot of people here denouncing this product will buy it.

    Guys I looked at the average of the enemy fetches

    One of each average joe price total is $277 dollars (rounded)

    So you nag one you save $115 dollars

    However they still screwed up on how to get this one it’s only available at game stores and each game store can only get 10

    Not to mentioned they just confirmed they have them in the line up for reprints in a supplement set outside standard so if it’s the same art as secret lair that’s another facepalm

    This is faulty logic. You’re comparing this to secondary market prices. WotC claims they aren’t influenced or informed by the secondary market at all. If that were true this product would be in the $40-$50 price range. So we’re not saving $115, we’re losing at least $125.

    So at least $175 for the fetchlands. That’s at least $35 per card. But they don’t even know the secondary market exists. No sir.
    And they’re limiting the supply so as not to upset the secondary market price gougers. What a joke.
