    If we're going back to these places I wonder if we'll see things like Heroic and devotion for Theros; I'd guess we'll see a landfall variant if not landfall itself for Zendikar, provided the storyline and setting call for it. I'd like to see more Heroic and devotion.

    'buster


    I would say Devotion is a sure thing. Heroic was pretty underwhelming last time though, so they may just drop it.

    I was contemplating that a few weeks ago at an M20 draft. Too much plastic is being used especially in an age of environmental awareness as strong as it is now.

    They can make packaging that's biodegradable without going the MoMa route and that fiasco. Cute idea but poorly executed last time. Hopefully they learned their lesson.

    'buster


    If you want to help the environment this kind of plastic is much better than using paper or wood material.

    Plastic isnt bad at all, unless you throw it directly into the world and leave it there.
    In any reasonable cycle where plastic is put in the garbage, a lot of plastic is recycled very well.


    ----

    shrink wrap is a pretty essential protection, without it all the packs are just out to get destroyed to humidity.

    Thats probably a pretty big quality loss in itself.


    are they though? lots of people have their loose cards in boxes and they do just fine.


    Those cards aren’t making transcontinental trips in those boxes. These cards are made overseas and shipped here on boats. Humidity is an issue.

    My Enchantment EDH deck is going to love the new Theros set.
    I’m concerned that Ikoria is just going to be an underpowered spectacle, all style no substance.
    A Teferi-centric core set sounds great, so long as it’s got a ton of Mirage flavor. Mirage is nostalgic for me because that was the first set I bought products from rather than just borrowing cards from my brother and cousins.
    Another return to Zendikar sounds iffy. They REALLY dropped the ball last time and I don’t think many people have forgotten that. I don’t have a lot of faith in them salvaging that plane and aside from them reprinting the enemy fetchlands I don’t think people will be excited to take another gamble with Zendikar.

    Even multicolor token decks will love this.

    I mean if they can design them better so they don't scuff the cards this is a really good change imo.


    That’s the big rub though. Can they manage that? Those packs were a nightmare. I have to imagine the only way to keep the cards from getting scuffed up is to either make the package so tight around the cards that they can’t move around at all or to wrap the cards in some tissue paper or something before they go into the pack.

    I’m really hoping he’s Sultai and that they finally start making more 3-color walkers.
    Vivien screams GWB to me but she’s just mono-G?
    Why hasn’t there been a WGR Ajani yet? Elspeth getting murdered wasn’t enough of a triggering moment somehow?

    and ps. jace and gideon suck as characters, so thanks again for making my point for me Wink


    Mmmh, the whole point of the conversation was that wotc made bad characters because it pandered to gays, nonwhites and so on just for the sake of diversity.
    Apparently they made bad characters even when they try to make classic characters: the white buff male and the white "nerd" male.
    It's pretty clear that they don't make bad characters because of sjw, they made bad characters and that's it
    So i guess your arguments just crumbled.


    Woah woah woah! Who told you you could bring logic into this?

    And men are not oversexualized in media.


    You’ll have a hard time making that case. Every male superhero, presented as the pinnacle of the male ideal, is absolutely ripped and sexualized to some degree.

    Lol im the one thats out of touch? Holy sh** i needed a good laugh.

    Im just gonna bite my tongue and refrain from saying what is quite possibly the most obvious rebuttal to that statement. Bc then ppl would really be offended and further wrapped in their emotions.

    Now Im done here bc I really dont want to offend more ppl than I supposedly already have.


    BTW, someone as brilliant as yourself should really use better grammar. Otherwise people might get the idea that you’re just a dimwit playing at being an intellectual on the internet.

    If you have nothing more to say just stop quoting me and leave it at that. Let me suffer from my delusion as I respectfully let others suffer from theirs.



    The lack of self awareness you display is extraordinary.

    Why is it that the most annoying people are also the least in touch with reality?

    I have an honest question for you. How old are you?


    ageism! younger people are inferior to old? or other way round? boy oh boy you're lucky you dont work at WOTC cause you would get fired so fast! Wink


    I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’re an edgy teenager who’s trying out a persona that you picked up online.

    Oh yeah, again the lie of people being fired/hired for sjw. People point me a real name of someone fired by wotc because he didn't want to be "emasculated"
    Yeah guess what, you can't
    So much for a guy throwing around words like "empirically".
    Empirically, Jace is still the male nerd so smart that can solve every problems with a few tricks
    Empirically, Gideon is still the buff male that held the awesome weapon and was also so heroic to sacrifice himself and save everyone
    Don't get mad just because Liliana and Chandra got their time to shine too, or because right know it seems that Rowan will have a bigger role than Will

    OMG this is so amazing. i literally said "IF an employee at WOTC" ect ect, but you see what you want to see and acuse me of lying! hahahaha congradulations on losing the argument. the whole point is that said employee CANT 'come out of the closet' so to speak as a fan of classic Conan. the point is this happens on a frequent basis at other companies and if you aren't aware of that then who knows what rock you're living under hahahahaha

    and ps. jace and gideon suck as characters, so thanks again for making my point for me Wink

    @leslak

    Are you seriously suggesting that everyone receives equal treatment just because the law says so, or are you being sarcastic?


    That’s a common tactic these days among the hateful. Say awful things about a group of people that are different, then say you’ve done nothing wrong and aren’t a bigot because the law protects everyone equally. A lot of Trump supporters say Trump isn’t bigoted because the law protects everyone equally. It’s intentionally dishonest, obviously.

    Anyways, im gonna bow out now bc its very clear that you cant say anything at all that can perceived to be against a minority class here or its taken as if you are a hobophobe, racist, sexist etc. no matter how much reason you have.


    Ah, so you have reasons to be prejudiced. Wonderful.

    BTW, you’re not as smart as you think you are. All bigots are inherently ignorant.
