    So it appears the Planeswalkers in some of these are random, and in some are not. For example, Everyone who has opened Seeing Visions online has gotten Ashiok, everyone who has opened OMGKitties! has gotten an Ajani, however the others seems to pull from some select walkers. I saw no informmation on getting Domri in Kaleidoscope Killers, but that was in one of mine. I also ended up with Gideon twice in one of the bundles I ordered. I have not seen anyone open up Liliana or Narset yet, but Kaleidoscope Killers has evidence of Teferi.


    As I keep saying, liliana will probably not be included due to the higher value compared to the other walkers.

    Shipping to Japan is $26,for one small box, so no deal. I was going to get the kaleidoscope killers but paying $66 for 3 cards doesn't make sense.
    Even is they're $25 each that doesn't mean much.

    I played something similar to this back in standard. I have updated and improved some of the cards and the comments about Heart of Kiran inspired me to post.



    This leaves me with four free slots and my considerations include:

    Rampaging Ferocidon
    Weldfast Engineer (Heart turn 2, this turn 3 swing 6 is some good)
    Aethersphere Harvester
    Chandra, Torch of Defiance
    or the last Heart of Kiran

    My goal is to have cheap, efficient beaters, most of which can crew up Heart of Kiran. When I played this in standard, the games where I saw Heart and Scrapheap Scrounger saw my winning percentage skyrocket. I think the legendary drawback is offset by how good Heart is. Furthermore, Forerunner of Slaughter can give our freshly returned Scrapheap Scroungers or newly cast Heart of Kiran haste for 1, giving an element of surprise.

    Some tertiary thoughts for card advantage include:
    Light Up The Stage
    Ruin Raider
    Glint-Sleeve Siphoner
    but I'm not sure I want to mess around with that.

    The upgrades from when I played this in standard are Thoughtseize and Bonecrusher Giant. It may also be more correct to run burn instead of the Fatal Pushes to provide us some reach.

    Is anyone else ending up here? I plan to play Saturday night in our local Pioneer tournament and will certainly report back my results!


    Twenty creatures is a bit light for an aggro deck, also if you need card draw light up the stage is insane, you may also consider theater of horrors, it makes the deck really grindy and able to win past turns 4-5.

    I don't need card draw in my deck but if I did I'd play light up the stage, it's only one mana for two extra cards.
    I'm playing it in standard in my boros knights deck and it works great.

    Au my lgs many people play commander and they complain when the store needs to use tables for actual tourneys, at the same time they don't buy cards regularly and act snobbish when people play only standard, or pioneer or modern.
    They are a cancer level outbreak at the lgs, they refuse to play competitive formats and when they are in the store they are very loud during their 4 or 5 man games.

    Expecting marvel may be next, I lost to it last Saturday although I drew badly and didn't finish him off in time, he was at 1 life when marvel went off.

    I'm betting liliana will not be included, since that will make her worth more than $500 for this version.
    So if you buy a bundle and get her you've almost tripled your money right there, the other walkers may only be worth $20-40 in stained glass form.

    The 8 play mats are worth it more than the cards bundle.

    The bundle is on sale now but shipping to Japan is about $60, it's crazy, they're not shipping potatoes, it should be less than half that price.

    So when do we get "Secret Lairs: ABU Edition"?


    Most likely never, unless you want all the laces and blessing reprinted as rares again.

    My lgs has a brawl league and 5-6 people meet on Saturdays to brawl, there are also a lot of commander players but they usually don't mix.
    I have 3 brawl decks already and can switch them when I play to have the most fun, also 4 player games take a long time, over an hour.

    In my opinion this is a turn 4 format so your deck should aim to win on turn 4,if not you will die to aggro decks.
    I was able to beat a control deck that gained life and drew cards like crazy with my aggro deck because after turn 4 every other turn was lethal unless the opp could stall.
    Also the graveyard dredge decks can win by turn 4-5 as well.

    Found out

    I think there’s a playmat with the art as well


    The artist is coming to Tokyo in January so I'll try to get a print of that art.

    Edit- never mind, he's not coming to Tokyo but his art will be on display.

    is it tournament legal?


    Looks like a silver border so no. Also this will go to chosen wizards employees only so why all the hype?

    It's not really a dead card since it can be pitched to Hazoret also, and 4 targets is enough since you only need to draw one, as I said before the scrounger will come back to be sacced.

    Discard is unnecessary in a hyper aggro deck like mine, I beat U/W control last week even though he drew a bunch of cards, the recursion and fast damage of my deck is enough to overpower his counters.

    One copy of Judith doesn't make sense in any deck, either you play 3 or 4 copies of her.
