Quote from Aazadan »Going by the numbers presented so far, GDS was in high numbers but didn't put up results.
Quote from javert »Has draft being good anyway? Haven't followed recent sets in a while, but now I see a bigger amount of vanilla creatures, eerily resembling of core sets, activated abilities with extremely clunky mana costs (3G to give +1/+1 to a creature), removals mostly shifted to uncommon or rare or costing 5 mana, creatures mostly designed to excel at attacking and suck at blocking etc. That can't possible be welcome by good draft players, who wants to have his turn options reduced to one and his cards played by themselves and being clunky at that?
Ixalan was deemed godawful for limited at least. Maybe if they don't focus on draft the sets become more pleasurable to play on Limited.
Quote from sylvanllewelyn »They really REALLY want Hedron Alignment to work. They're trying really hard.
Quote from Colt47 »We are seeing multiple decks go over the 2000 dollar mark now or approaching that point.
Quote from Melkor »I don't think people are upset about it being reprinted exactly. nobody is ever going to be sad to pull it. the problem is that it really isn't scare or in dire need of a reprint. that's in keeping with everything else I have seen for the reactions to this set, people are just unhappy becaue cards like Clique are on their nth printing, but it's very difficult to find other cards. FoW would have been better in that spot, Crucible of Worlds, Engineered Explosives, a bunch of others. It's a perfectly good reprint, but the demand of something like Goyf isn't there, and there is nobody who can't make a deck for lack of Clique being available. Doubling Season, Urza lands, Colonnade, Heirarch, even TNN. even cards not as expensive would have been met with more approval than some of the choices. the thing people object to isn't the cards in the set, it's the cards not in the set.
Quote from -spooky- »Commune With the Gods is pretty sweet tech. How does the deck play for you?
