Challenger Decks are your on-ramp to Standard. These four individual 75-card decks are geared toward Standard play for the Friday Night Magic player, and forged out of some of the most powerful strategies in Standard.
Each Challenger Deck comes with a complete 60-card main deck and a 15-card sideboard, and is intended to be playable and competitive at a local level right out of the box. All cards will have been previously printed in Standard and are Standard-legal. Additionally, each Challenger Deck will contain the following:
A box capable of holding 75 sleeved cards.
A Spindown life counter
A quick reference guide
Challenger Decks will be available April 6, 2018, and will have an MSRP of $29.99 (only applies to the United States). These decks will be available worldwide in English, with Japanese available in Japan.
Watch for the full decklists in February!
Sep 20, 2017Posted in: Rumored Card RulingsQuote from silentstormraider »"Dinosaur spells" are only spells that have Dinosaur in their type line or have the Changeling ability, as they are all creature types at all times. So the only non-creature spells that these two cards will reduce the cost of are Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap.
So, Commune with Dinosaurs and Dinosaur Stampede will NOT have their costs reduced by Kinjalli's Caller or Otepec Huntmaster.
Hope that helps.
That id not exact, also Blades of Velis Vel, Ego Erasure and Wings of Velis Vel will get their costs reduced.
Sep 20, 2017Both Commune with Dinosaurs and Dinosaur Stampede do NOT have the dinosaur tipe so they do NOT get the discount, while a creature, like Bellowing Aegisaur, that is a dinosaur gets the discount and a spell that is a dinosaur, like Crib Swap that have all creature tipes, get the discount.Posted in: Rumored Card Rulings

It seems like he's not a friendly player, the right term for such a player would get me Mods attention. But still why would someone do such a thing to deceive the opponent? Was it during a tournament?Quote from blkh »What are the mistakes you made in EDH that made you learn? For me, I was playing Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck. I asked my opponent whether he has fliers to block my fliers. He said no. I whacked all with my fliers. He blocks with a reach creature. Lost an attacker. So, from then onwards, I ask my opponents 'Do you have fliers AND reach?' Never got into the problem again.
What about you?
Answering your question: I learned to never underestimate Krenko, mob boss even when he is in the command zone, he closed a 4 players game in the 5 turn! That's wrong! Never underestimate mono-red again!

I'd also imagine that there will be a lot of tribal pirate support in Ixalan.
I hope so, I NEED to build a pirate-themed commander.

In Italy for MM2 the price per pack was 15€ that is roughly 17,60$ (with today's change), luckly for Eternal Masters the price has been lowered to 12€, but still that is a lot for a set full of crappy (ok, maybe not a lot) reprints.Quote from Xcric »the ****?
what card shop were you guys buying any masters anything packs at at under $12 minimum?
products like these... given their print run, and whats included, msrp is irrelevant. wotc could set a price of literally $1, but if the run and the cards included warrant it then your shop will charge $20.
Aug 20, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Reesepuff »Magic card availability is becoming more and more prevailing. I'm unsure how long you've been playing for but magic did change its printing policy during the start of Return to Ravnica block. Prior to that time a set would only be printed for a few limited months when that set was the newest. After RtR the sets are now printed on demand until two years later when the set rotates out of standard. This printing process has allowed far more cards to be issued and collected. Cards like snapcaster mage and liliana of the veil never dropped below 30 when that block rotated out, but even though they were a reprint all shock lands never stayed above 10 when they rotated. Watery grave is still a 15 dollar card after being released 5 years ago. Cards have become affordable, but unfortunately every single card they've ever printed cannot become affordable otherwise what's the point to magic being a collectible anyways?
I've been playing since 2000, and intrinsic value is one of the things that has always kept players around. What's the point of spending money on cards if there's no return value? What the point of playing a game where you get nothing back? As we move foreword magic has to, and is evolving to accommodate the ever growing number of players vs the demand for cards which in my opinion has been handled quite well. With an MSRP of 3.99 a pack there has to be some form of value there, otherwise who would buy them? Just like in life everybody can't afford to do the same thing everyone else can. Unfortunately modern, and legacy should very well be left to the players who have worked hard at gaining their collection and want something to show for it. Eventually wizards will make another non rotating format to compensate for modern prices.
No, please no. You're saying that modern is a format for "elite" players (like yourself) that "work hard" (=Spend a lot of money) to have a deck?
If it where like you're saying not a lot of people would play modern, who would you play against?
The value of an opened pack is almost non-existent, just think of the lastest set "Hour of Devastation" where it's really hard to get back the value of the pack.
Also Wizards does not really care about non-rotating formats, for them is all about limited and standard where they do a lot more money.

Mind's desire is an incredible fun card, I play it in my Mizzix storm EDH, and I can say that even with the randomness it can be crazy powerful.

Don't even start. Mods will close the thread. If you really want to tell me what in my overly-simplistic description is wrong, do so in a private message.Quote from wallycaine »
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is a trans woman. Your description of her is pretty offensive.
Aug 14, 2017Wasitora is in the set because they wanted a cicle of dual-tipes creatures, they then abandoned the idea keeping just two of them: Bloodline Necromancer (for wizard - vampire) and Wasitora, Nekoru Queen (for cat - dragon). Only after they desinged the cards they found out that Wasitora existed (while searching for a cat dragon in the multiverse).Posted in: Speculation

Will an Imperial Recruiter keep his 70$ price tag after a week? And after a month?
