    so, is it time ignore zendikar already ? would be fine for me, already got bored of the set... and what was it again, which they promoted before ? something tripple or quadripple ? who cares... but tbh, i think they could hurry with more products.

    do we know the price of the product already ? do they accept gold bar's ?

    is there somewhere a number of active arena players ?
    i am just curious, cause i think it is trash (i mean there are so many better games you can play on a pc). i understand people get their dose of magic during corona there, i just wonder if it will be a thing after corona or even in 2-3 years.

    The most baffling thing about this is why ANYONE still plays Standard or Pioneer. People whine about Modern bans, and they do suck, and Wizards SHOULD be yelled at for some of them, but unless I am missing something, they have banned moe cards from STANDARD in the last 12 months than in any 12 month period in Modern with the exception of only the initial announcement of the format. The same goes for Pioneer, also excluding the initial announcement. Buying into the two most hyped and supported formats in the last year is just lighting money on fire in a way Modern has NEVER been.


    i enjoy playing standard more than modern. i like the constant shift, the automatical force to rethink or change a deck. its a very dynamic format. and to be honest i really liked the old standard showdown booster, which were a really nice addon to these tournaments. sadly wizards even had to ruin those...

    and standard usually is a more interactive format than modern or pioneer, where so many decks simply ignore the opponent and just focus on their combo / win con

    i know people dont like change, i know standard in long term can be more expensive than modern (but hell, magic as a whole is), but it is my hobby and i am willing to pay for the fun. to me standard used to be a really good format (not just because it sells products for wizards)

    this banning is a joke

    standard:
    teferi and reclamation ban is to late. banning it for the last 2 months of its remaining time in standard is a joke. these cards were dominant in standard since their release

    as for cauldron familiar... wtf ? banned because of to many triggers in arena ? gosh, what a stupid excuse. either its a problematic card or its not. dont ban it because of a stupid video game. and we have plenty of answers in the current standard for this deck. just let people interact with it. or did wizards count in the best of 1 format, where you dont sideboard ?

    this development is bs... this whole year of wizards is bs

    as for pioneer
    when i saw the bans i thought: "wow, did they really just ban 4 decks completly?" and than i read the article just to learn it was totally their intent. WTF ???
    i highly doubt, that when you have less and less players in a format, banning 4 decks from the remaining players will solve the problem.
    from those bannings only inverter of truth was a good ban. for certain decks it is hard to interact with this combo, giving them no real chance, which is why the ban would be ok. this alone would already have let to more diversity in the meta. but banning 4 decks... for real ?

    if you ask me, they take bannings way to easy these days. i am very very disappointed by wizards decisions this year. i really love this game, but why does the company that publishes it sabotage themself so hard. i am really considering quitting, which i dont want, but i cant enjoy the game anymore.

    tbh i think this set is just not good to be drafted
    ultimate masters was an awesome draft set. i usually hate to draft and like constructed play more. but a lot of friends enjoy drafting, and i have to say i really really enjoyed ultimate masters.

    but this set ?
    it is just not balanced
    u have this combo, u have marit lage with vampire hexmage or thespian stage and a lot of other high mana cards
    so either u get the combo or u r scrwed. there are no real archtypes in this set to be drafted (artifacts, equipment and ???)

    this set is just a reprint set for people to mass open it. whoever thinks this is a good draft set might be disappointed once he is drafting it.

    yay, more 50 cent mythics... glad they just got a reprint in foil. i have so much money and i think buying double masters is more co2 friendly than just burning the money.

    my 1st impression on the boxtopper art was "WOW, i want it"... but the more and more i look at it, the more i dislike it

    1st, it doesnt really look like avacyn (so ungothic)
    2nd, it seems also kind of cheap, just using the colors to kind of make it look good, but the art itself seems kind of boring

    i dont know... guess i will have to see it in real, but i get more and more doubts on this... would have prefered the original art borderless i guess

    Phew....wizards dodged a bullet if mana reflection was not here there would have been a riot outside their headquarters (it was still idiotic they didn’t start with this one)
    And that art is incredible

    And oh my gosh basalt monolith can now be gotten in foil that’s gonna be like $30 being a high demand card


    monolith in foil wont be a 30$ card. remember, boosters are full of foils and than you have those vip packs, which are packed with foil uc
    ever since collectors booster normal foils are cheap as hell


    its the first ever time being in foil and the print run is severely less and its a high demand card

    you dont know what your talking about despite double rares and foils


    https://www.cardmarket.com/de/Magic/Products/Singles/Double-Masters/Basalt-Monolith

    here it is offered from the first person for 10€ (around 12$)... and he is the first to offer it(at the time of posting this). on this page traders can presell, once its released private people can sell too... so who is not knowing what he is talking about ? this card will go way down from these 10€.
    first cause of the competition from other traders, 2nd later from private people selling.

    i dont mind my magic cards being cheap, but i do mind paying a overpriced booster packs in order to get them ^^
    there is no argument to put it in a premium booster, when they just put it in a "normal" booster and a precon

    sigh... more artifact masters... dont know why, but that makes this set super boring and unexiting to me



    how many times do we have to tell you people



    maro said this is a artifact themed master set.


    no he said they started to develope such a set, without telling how far it was. who would have thought it turns out they took the whole crap set and copied it 1 to 1

    when u pay a high price for a "premium" product and get a uncommon... but at least maro & friends can drink champagne
    wonder what longterm effect this will have on customers, destroying so much trust with such a product. when u pay that much money, u shouldnt feel scammed.

  • posted a message on Set boosters (yet another new type of booster)
    so cards are being cut out and yet it is still more expansive ?
    people are taking the bait here cause of the extra chances for rares / mythics ? it is sill a way to sell cardboard for a higher price. (i mean it would be higher by just cutting cards, but they still had to increase the price... tse, i believe some day i stop playn magic not because the game sucks, but the wizards, by trying to fool everyone)

    and who needs art cards ? thats like less worth than a common, since u cant play it. u wanna make a booster for people who dont draft by adding a useless card ??? what logic is that ?
