    I am planning to build this deck, but a little more midrange-y. I think the +1/+1 counters mean this deck can handle a little more time on the table and won't get outclassed quite as quickly as most weenie decks do.

    I haven't done any testing yet as I am still compiling cards, but I like the look of the list so far.

    Really really surprised we didn't seem Damnation in here. Seems like it would have been the perfect place for it.

    I would honestly expect to never see Warlords of Khanar announced. They trademarked that at right around the same time Blizzard announced Warlords of Drawenor. It looks to me like they switched titles to avoid confusion and settled on this one instead, which is fine because Khans of Tarkir sounds super cool.

    20 additional cards could be the cards with designer credits. Maybe 1 for each player of the year for the last 20 years. Like a super invitational.

    Yay! Another creature for Bant Auras to exploit! Excuse me while I punch a wall.

    I would be surprised to see Bant Auras continue without Rancor.

    Also, I would have been very surprised to see no multicolor in this set considering it is on the tail end of a multicolor block and inter-block design is a thing.

    I would expect the next set to be heavily monocolor (and my money is on Muraganda.)

    it shows them that they can print exclusive cards and people will pay for them. it sets the precedent of well lets make a planeswalker even more powerful than jace the mindsculptor but make him only available at special events in limited quantities because people will pay for him.

    and people WILL pay for him.

    slippery slope my friends.

    Don't worry... they have already proved to themselves in the past this doesn't work (google Nalathni Dragon).

    This is a special edition of something that ALREADY EXISTS special for the convention. Comics do this kind of stuff all the time. They don't need to find a better way to distribute, this is the intended distribution. It's ended to be an incredibly small print run for those at the special event to get "exclusive" access to. Just go to ebay and type in SDCC Exclusive and see how many other companies are doing the exact same thing. Hell, the hasbro booth does this for all their other lines so it only makes sense they do it for magic (and actually shows hasbro putting its faith in the brand). This isn't a slippery slope and the sky isn't falling. You didn't get the planeswalkers and you wanted some? I'm sorry. Next year go to SDCC. Or start hitting some big tourneys, maybe you can trade for one. I have no sympathy for this. This is what these special events are about.

    Just want to add that it isn't 5 mana to give a guy the scavenge effect, it's 5 mana to give AND activate a scavenge effect on the guy. How much have we played for scavenge in the past? To give and activate this seems fair.

    Quote from gmax666
    Just try it, I just flipped a coin 5 times and it came up heads every time. I even switched between having heads on top and bottom. I know its all random but hey its completely possible. Ok just did again with a different coin and got all five heads again. One last time and only got tails once.

    Your sample size isn't large enough. While flipping a coin isn't truly a 50/50 proposition, it is certainly not as one sided as your results would suggest. It's probably closer to 51/49 and there are a lot of resources with a lot larger sample sizes to back that up. In reality though, it's as close as when your opponent pile shuffles and then riffle shuffles a few times and presents his deck. "Random enough". If you are really concerned, roll a six sided die and count 1, 2 and 3 as heads and 4, 5 and 6 as tails.

    I clicked on the picture. It says Voidslime. Is that the suggested name from the website or did you give the file a new name?

    Where it's a screen shot from the trailer I would say it was his filename, however that wouldn't surprise me. I have been thinking for a while we are going to get one or two cards from each guild that are the most famous card from the guild the first time around (lightning helix, mortify, watchwolf, etc.).

    Is it just me or is the Dimir guild symbol missing from Maze's End? Maybe I am just missing it.

    Why would Dimir have an entrance? It's just a myth.

  • posted a message on Possible new info on DOTP 2014.
    Certainly interesting information if true. It also seems to imply (Delver and Angry Mob being mentioned in titles) that we might see some flip cards. It seems they don't mind DOTP tying in to non-standard sets. I am surprised to see Sealed being an option. I hope it is though... I need to get better at crafting sealed decks.

    I don't know why people think we can't do a land that makes colored mana without it being part of a cycle. If we make an enchantment it will only be one color and won't be part of a cycle. Why couldn't we do the same with a land? Yes, wizards has historically done lands in cycles, but not always (hellion crucible is a great example of this... where are the blue/green/white/black lands that become creatures?) So there is no reason we couldn't create a blue land that does something without it being part of a cycle.

    Price is a rationing method. You balk at supply and demand being the reason for these being priced how they are but it actually true. A stores goal is to get some number of these allocated to them and sell them at whatever price point they will sell exactly the number allocated to them. They don't want to have to tell someone "sorry man, sold out (I.e. rats nest circa Betrayer's of Kamigawa) and they don't want to be stuck with dead product on the shelf that won't move. If you see no one buy one for six months you can complain about the price (and the store may even be willing to cut you a deal) but you can't complain about stores trying to hit the optimal number of number of boxes they have (supply) matching the number of people willing to pay their price for their product (demand). That's economics. If everyone charged MSRP you'd be able to complain about how they were never in stock. When something is too expensive for you it means you aren't one of the people expected to buy it.

    Please forgive mistakes, I'm on my phone.
