    Why would Konami - the makers of Yugioh - partner with Wizards of the Coast?



    Partner with them? Do you understand how IP licensing works?
    If you owned an IP and a competitor asked you about using it you do realize the ball is in your control right?
    Konami gets to set the price they have to pay, what the can use and how long they can use it for. Sure WotC can haggle but they don’t have leverage to get a deal that favors them.
    Seriously WotC had to pay Toho to use Godzilla and could only use them for Ikoria since Toho gave them a time frame they were allowed to use them for.
    Toho didn’t lose any money from Ikoria. WotC sure lost sales because Ikoria released during the lock down of the Corona Pandemic.
    Konami would lose nothing and only gain profits. Profits from a top competitor in the TCG/CCG market.

    You joined this forum in June, have 5 posts to date,


    So you’ve been essentially complaining against gatekeeping the franchise for many of your post...and then proceeded to tell someone their opinion isn’t valid because they haven’t been on these forums as long as you. You don’t know how long they’ve played the game. Or how long they’ve lurked on the forums before joining.
    What your doing is the thing you claim to hate....your gatekeepeing.

    I thought more on their "it would look bad with two names" reasoning of WotC's. I'm sure the reason we are not seeing two names on the card isn't because of style, or whatever fancy word they wish to use, but instead because they don't have a second name for those cards. Considering they mentioned that down the road these cards will be printed correctly (my words) it's strange they don't have those names already figured out. It's rumored they were doing this for years and they don't have a plan in place for this? Really?

    Honestly, if they had the second name in place that would have mitigated some of the issues many players have about this product as we knew that there was a plan in place eventually. Here we have a sort of tentative plan of reprint.


    The thing is they didn’t even need to fully flesh out where the Magic appropriate legend would have come from they just needed ‘Name, Title’ and have them in alt-skin frames. Also not having the zombies be 2/2 black Zombies is dumb. If their excuse is ‘Oh well color doesn’t matter in TWD.’ is dumb because the cards that make them have colored mana costs and adhere to MTG rules. Not only that they don’t call them zombies in the franchise but Darryl and Michonne refer to Zombies in their abilities. So they broke immersion for TWD in one half and them when back to MTG immersion in the other half...which is stupid because it breaks immersion for people of both franchises.

    Ok good news guys

    https://twitter.com/SheldonMenery/status/1310725509857370112?s=20

    Sheldon and the RC committe Are listening to us, taking notes and weighing options Basicly they are discussing TWD cards

    and they will have something to say and will definatly be before the secret lair drops

    in other words This looks like a sign TWD cards will probably be considered silver bordered In commander format
    Honestly? Good.

    "Oh you want this new commander that has a playstyle you like? Well why didn't you buy it in this limited window for this price? Not in your country? OOooh don't worry, you can just buy it for this marked up price from someone on ebay. Thats fine right?"


    Disgusting.


    Slant your clearing not seeing what they are talking about

    the point is the RC of commander are looking into it for us

    man did this secret lair left a taste so sour to you it like you didn't hear what they said at all

    and plus if you read my comments in this thread i hate these and they outright lied to us about the promise they made back when Nalathni Dragon appeared which was "promise to never print functionally unique promos" they broke they promise and this really ticked me off


    They broke that promise, yet see fit to make the reserve list as unbreakable as possible. Why does WotC bother promising anything at all?

    Actually could this be playable in infect modern?


    you can auto equip a Glistener Elf on T2 after it’s not summoning sick play a fetchlands crack it find a forest then cast Scale up That’s 10 infect on T2


    Why would you play this over the plethora of spells that give +4/+4 in that deck exactly? It's worse than all of them. It requires a fetchland to give +4/+4 unlike the other spells.

    This is just bad, it requires you having a bunch of lands to play to even do anything. It does nothing T1 and nothing late game, and in the mid-game leaves you super open to blow outs.


    you only need 2 lands

    One taps for green and one is a fetchlands that can get a forest

    T1 forest play glistener elf


    T2 play the axe It auto equips to the elf then Play the fetchland after the axe enters for +2/+2 Crack it for a forest that’s another +2/+2 then play scale up


    You have to cast Scale Up first. If you played it the way you said, Scale Up would overwrite the +2/+2 bonuses you got from the lands just making it 6/4.

    But...but...you can’t question WotC’s wonderful generosity.😜
    At this points it would be a mercy kill if WotC goes out of business. Yet people still shill and defend the company.

    WotC- We don’t want player shuffling to much. So we won’t reprint the fetches properly.
    Also WotC- Yeah we still put cards that involve shuffling in at every rarity. Also where still working on an entire mechanic that involves shuffling cards from outside your deck into your deck.


    F**k off WotC! You stupid hypocritical butt-turds.

    2) I'm all for another Unset regardless of it's theme. Would be a nifty way to sneak in a black border card like Sliver Queen, the same way they did with Steamflogger Boss.


    Reserved List- Cards WotC won’t physically reprint.

    Queen is on the reserved list.
    Boss isn’t on the reserved list.

    If that doesn’t answer the possibility of it happening, then I don’t know what will make you understand.

    WotC- We don’t want to make older cards obsolete.
    Also WotC- We obsoleted Wind Drake.
    Also also WotC- In 90% of instances where we could reprint this...we’ll reprint Wind Drake instead because we felt this was to powerful and obsoleting Wind Drake was a bad idea.

    Me-🤦🏻‍♂️

    Sisay, Weatherlight Captain for Shrine-Tribal commander.

    But also I swear this really stupid. They gave a shrine lord a "when ability triggers" but then they give you two shrines with activated abilities, not triggered abilities. They need to errata that.


    8 out of 10 Shrines having triggered abilities is still very useful for the Shrine lords ability.
