    I assume a lot of ambulance-chasing lawyers will be happy to take a client's money, whether the case is founded or not. I think this is a massive waste of time on the part of whoever is fronting the case.

    Without free counterspells like Daze and Force of Will it is flat out too slow and not nearly powerful enough. And no, Disrupting Shoal is not good enough. It's sad how afraid of Stoneforge Mystic people (and Wizards) are. It reminds me of how afraid people were of Bitterblossom, Ancestral Vision, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Remember when the format was going to be broken to pieces by those super overpowered cards?

    Holy Moly...........the 7 day waiting period is up for leaving negative feedback.....and boy have they ever

    Do you think they care?
    Do you think this will at all affect their sales?

    We Magic fans are gluttons for punishment. As long as the game is still good, we'll play. The only time they saw a loss of players is when there was nearly 3 years of AWFUL Standard and multiple bans.

    I'll hazard a guess that they do another Mythic Edition, and as long as it has chase cards on the level of Jace and Ugin, everyone will be flipping their minds out trying to buy that as well. And when people are upset about the next Mythic Edition, it will be because they couldn't buy one.

    Stoneforge Mystic is still a sad and pathetic card to keep banned. I literally only want it unbanned to sell my copies, because I firmly believe it would be a terrible card to actually play in this harsh, fast, and devastatingly powerful format.

    Looks like they're just taking their time with sending out orders. Just got my shipping confirmation about 5 minutes ago. FedEx shipping from PA to CA.

    As for the sheets, keep in mind that those (and the $20 gift card) are free.

    You WILL get a refund for a non-received product. And if your order has not been refunded, but was canceled, you can now open a claim with eBay, who will step in and get the refund for you if the seller is not cooperating. Ebay is extremely favorable to buyers at the expense of sellers.

    This is getting ridiculous, still no refund am actually waiting to see if ill get the full value (little over 1000€ for 3 boxes plus the taxes).

    You shouldn't have been able to get 3 boxes.

    I got one box on a separated order when they relisted the mythic edition for 4k+ units just in case my first didn't went through.

    If/when they ship it, that may be flagged or canceled. They were very clear about 2/person. Let us know what happens.

    I can confirm they are still shipping these. Just got my confirmation.

    2 Boxes, Texas, last name starts with S. Not sure if there are any other things that can be clues to how they are shipping.

    There's still hope for me yet! (Still on the waiting game).

    I'll probably give them until Friday before I open a claim. Claims are usually an easy way for sellers to just say "sure, refund, now go away" when I would much rather have my two boxes that were confirmed.

    It also works with Delay. My brother was trying to brew a deck using the new Teferi, Spell Queller and Delay. Seems pretty cool but I feel decks like this struggle vs fast aggro decks like Phoenix and Dredge.

    Yeah, seems like a sweet idea, but Modern is not about grindy late game value, it's about brutal speed and efficiency. If you aren't winning, or in a commanding position within the first 3-4 turns, you're likely losing that game.

    For those getting shipping notice today, what part of the country are you located? And do you know approx how many were listed sold when you purchased?

    Got my order confirm message days ago, but still waiting on shipping notification.

    I guess I have a different perspective spending the last 20 years going to San Diego Comic Con. In addition to the tickets (which in of itself is now a multi-step, lottery process, due to consistent website crashes every year), the idea of exclusivity is core to the desire, want, and need for certain products. There are not enough for everyone, therefore it intrinsically holds more value than regular stuff anyone can buy. The same holds true for any high-demand limited product, no matter who is selling it or where it's sold. I do this every year at Comic Con with J Scott Campbell signed variant comics. They sell for $40-50 each at his booth, but are literally not available anywhere other than the floor of the convention, and only available in limited quantities. I turn around and sell them online for $90-110, because people who cannot get them through those means want them. It's the same thing with these cards. And printing enough to satisfy all the people who want one actively defeats the purpose of the product entirely.

    Or they could just print to demand not worry about whether the secondary market can sell promo Jace for $600 or $300.

    Isn't that the opposite of a "limited" and "exclusive" product?

    I've asked this question on both Facebook and Twitter, but how does a company fairly sell 12,000 units of something to 50,000+ people who want it? What system would be fair? What would survive the DDOS-attack levels of internet traffic? I have an example (what is done for San Diego Comic Con tickets) but I'm curious how others would solve the issues facing this product.

    Running bad, narrow cards to fight a horrible, high-variance deck that you might never even see is just asking to feel bad playing Modern.
