    wizards is really overkilling it

    40 dollar for 3 cards ? / and another set has 5 for 30... tell me again you dont look at the secondary market wizards

    and here we are with another premium product. thank god, cause magic players dont know where to go with all their money. and the last premium product is already 2 months old... doesnt feel special anymore, the players need something new.
    the thing they forget is, if they want to make some special cards copying the alternation of cards from artists, they dont get that people like to have the unique cards... if everyone can buy them, they are not special anymore. ("so you got a full art xxx... yea, i got that too")

    the price is ridicolous, and with all these premium products i dont get why they still had to increase the normal display price. i dont get why there are still soooo many people willing to buy this. but ok, if you dont know anything better to do with 40 dollar than buying alternate arts of existing cards, enjoy it.

    actually this feels so random.
    i can understand the banning of leyline and the cat, but oath of nissa and now veil of summer ?
    you really have to question if these bannings solve "problematic" decks. i even question if the decks are really that problematic. the format is so new and it had not really a chance to evolve. sorry to say this, but the magic community is slow in adopting. for 1 creative person that can build decks you get 99 people that can only copy decklists of others. if they win, they keep playn the deck.
    while i think veil of summer is more powerful than oath of nissa, it is also a niche card, good in just certain situations.

    i wonder why they didnt start with origin and call it "origin" as a format
    would have been a much better marketing thing, especially since they said they wanna target newer players. how are 6 year old sets targeting older players ?

    reprints of beloved un-cards ?
    was there ever any un card beloved or is it just a poor excuse for "sorry, we had to cut down developement cost, so we wanna make money with reprints, you will probably just buy it for the lands anyways" ?

    When Deputy of Detention becomes a creature with no abilities, for example due to Oko, thief of crowns and than dies, will the exiled cards still return ?

    guys, stop complaining please.

    wizards already introduced a 2 class way of selling magic products with the master editions. and people were more than happy to buy it. they wondered if thats the ceiling and tried the master editions with just 8 premium walkers and people were more than happy to buy it. ofc they go next level with these collectors boosters and this deluxe edition. the problem is not wizards, it is every single person that just buys cardboard for that price and all the others saying, yea, it is worth that much. that system only works as long as people support it.

    just look at the secondary market. investors artificially increase the price by limiting the supply on a more or less low, but stable demand. thats why the price goes up and some people still pay for it.
    and wizards notices people are paying 100's of dollars on the secondary market for rare stuff. so they say, lets make stuff rare and ask for the cash.

    a planeswalker running wild hunting other planeswalker no matter which side they are at... missed opportunity that they just randomly return him now.

    would have loved a set where we have the typical good vs evil fight, where garruk randomly shows off, beheads the evil dude and moves on without anyone realizing what just happened. you know, let him make some random chaos here and there. but ok... guess we are back to good old boring walkers, not that they used him storywise anyways

  • posted a message on [ELD] Deathless Knight
    actually i dont think the 4/2 haste part is that interesting. i kind of more like the idea to use him as a pseudo Squee, Goblin Nabob, only that you can use him in every players turn

  • posted a message on [ELD] Deathless Knight
    its been online for at least an hour now and i cant see any thread here, so:

    Deathless Knight B/G B/G B/G B/G
    Uncommon Creature - Skeleton, Knight

    Haste
    Whenever you gain life for the first time each turn, return Deathless Knight from your graveyard to your hand.

    4/2

  • posted a message on Mothership 9/18 - the great henge (the green legendary artifact)
    i got some reservations for this card

    is it ramp ? depends, but in most situations its not. i mean if u got ur big dude out already, for what will you need ramp ?
    so lets say u play turn 4 a 4/4 (Questing Beast) which is reasonable, you play this turn 5... for what ? 2 life ?

    than the 2nd abbility. u want to play this card in a deck, with big creatures, does it matter when they get 1 bigger ?

    the card draw is also relevant for each creature u play after this artefact, but strangely u r incentivised to play u creatures before this card

    i am not saying this card is bad, but i think there might be situations where it just is bad. i see it more as a casusal card and doubt it will see standard play.

    i am honestly absolutly no fan of the mentor art and i hope they dont print this in any other set. dont want another Eternal Dragon incedent. better another new art or the at least the old art in case it sees a reprint

    Quote from knto »
    Maybe a burn style deck could use it but certainly not knight tribal.


    agree with that. that type of deck wouldnt care for that extra card in early, cause the opponent wont be able to play multiple spells anyway, while it gives him a little extra dmg and that 1 card that might deliver the last 3 damage before the opponent can stabilize the board.

    its maybe not a great card, but its a fair card and if it supports ur strategy u might be on the better end of that supposed to be fair deal
