    In general you should always call a judge when a game error occurs. The judge will look at the game state and determine what the appropriate fix is. For instance if significant decisions have been made with faulty information it may be determined too detrimental to fix.

    By increasing their pricing do you mean leaving it the same or something else? Because they aren't increasing their pricing it is still 39.99



    Bro i can't wait for the next wave where they'll have lairs for 50$. I can't really wait to see what excuse you will make up for that.
    If you expect an excuse for why its $50 I can probably give it to you already "The contents are worth more than that." or "Its an awful product why should you be mad it's expensive if no one wants it?" Generally I don't have a problem with what ever a source chooses to charge for its product or service, if it's too high I don't partake. I understand that there could be value in getting gathering people to insist it isn't worth that much, in hopes of the price lowering but I don't see any value in attacking people who think it is worth what it's selling for. If you expect me to try and claim they aren't raising the prices when the do in fact raise prices, don't. They didn't raise prices here so I pointed out that they didn't when others claimed they did. I don't enjoy opinions presented as facts and try and point out such violations when I see them.

    How much do you spend on Magic product?

    Why does it matter? I'm talking about their pricing. They are increasing their pricing immediatly with the second wind of this product.

    The initial secret lairs had $30 lairs, only 2:7 were $40. The following one had only one lair at $40. The third one has five secret lairs at $40 but no $30 lairs.

    The illusion is that they haven't raised the price. But if they don't also have $30 lairs, then the price is rising without an announcement having to be made as the $30 secret lairs might be discontinued.
    It's not an illusion. They haven't raised the price. They have always had ones at $40, not doing any at $30 doesn't mean they have raised the price when they have always done $40. Even if they never do another one at $30 it wouldn't mean they increased their price. Once they do one for $45 or anything higher than before then they will have increased their price.

    Do you still own this item? If so I would be interested in acquiring it.

    It looks like he was thinking of buying, he didn't own it.

    I'm still wondering what the answer was about game legality in a sleeve.
    Its difficult to tell from an image because the main problem for legality besides the obvious "Can I tell what this is" is how it feels. It looks like it has some noticeable crinkles which could lead to it being noticeably thicker than other cards even when sleeved. Which makes it essentially worthless(probably a $50 novelty item).

    It's probably going to be all related to Valentine's Day. Couples? Partners?


    Nope maro confirm none of them are Valentine’s related

    Thank you because I’m on board with thenrumor Valentine’s Day is a made up holiday
    Oh yes, we all know that one holiday that isn't actually made up...uhh you know that one that is real...The Summer Solstice?

    All holidays are made up. Belittling Valentine's Day by saying its made up is the same as belittling Monday because it ends in Day.

  • posted a message on Doubt about Evolving Wild
    After a short investigation into what mtgoncurve.com is, I feel I can mostly answer your question.

    First, you are correct. Fetch lands, in general, reduce your technical land count by a very small percentage. 3 fetch lands will reduce the odds of drawing lands by something close to .01%

    Second, mtgoncurve.com doesn't treat fetchlands right. It treats evolving wilds as a colorless mana rather than mana fixing which makes its math bad. It should treat it as a tapped rainbow land which would make your numbers look better.

  • posted a message on Edh is the worst format in any tcg ever
    1. What rules are you talking about? Every format has rules. By this point every format should be the worst meaning no format is the worst. If you actually mean the politics and not some "rule" as you stated then this is present in any free for all multiplayer format and several not free for all multiplayer formats.

    2. Some people are toxic. EDH usually has the friendliest communities you can foster. Making it so far the best format based on your criteria.

    3. What does this even mean? Casual play is casual play. Formats are formats. You can play a format casually or competativly. The format is simply which version of magic you are playing.


    Thank you for your 3 reasons why EDH is the best format available and how you are doing your best to keep it the best by staying away from it.

    I also get the feeling that Theros isn't as "full" as it should be. Informal rumors point to Theros having some of the cards cut and a very rocky development cycle.
    Theros was fully printed before Oko was banned they couldn't cut cards from it they work too far in the future.

    I detect anger and disblief but I find it hard to understand why. Were you expecting them for free? Did you expect them to be bundled together and cost gems? Did you expect them to cost less than an avatar or sleeves? Or are you just unaware of how much gold cosmetics cost and shocked in general?

    I already scooped up all 5. Their cost was insignificant and every deck has some number of basics. I'm glad they didn't decide to bundle them all together and change something like 3,600 gems because I would actually hesitate at that. Unless you expected them free or as some part of winnable item this is the cheapest I imagine them making anything. Other card styles costs the same or more so it's hard to understand where your frustration is coming from.


    Or.... you can just read it for what it is, a question.

    If I was angry about it, you can bet my post would be a lot longer and display far more annoyance.
    The intent behind written posts is difficult to capture but when you start with "Wow..." that signals annoyance and disbelief. The italicization of "each" doubles down on both of those feelings. Then asking your question by not asking a question but making a statement; then asking the question twice once more has a feeling of hostility not to mention the use of the words "Shell out" and "entice". Though I have trouble picking up normal social cues, so whatever.

    Whats not old is Frank Karsten being muzzled from posting GP data.
    That is not old but it also seemingly has nothing to do with the other part. Are they connected or did you just jump in here to yell fire?

    Also, yes that is tragic. More data should be a good thing.
    Well in Historian's Video.
    He actually puts that first before the MPL rules change.
    His reason being in citing its recency.
    And why its a bad thing.
    Yes SavannahLion, that is why.
    K, I didn't watch the video just read the readable stuff and it had nothing to do with that. Having still not watched the video are people actually upset about the fine? The article caps off with this is an expected clause that no one should be surprised about. Cause if no one is upset about the fine a thread should be talking about the cutting off of Data not the fine because that's some annoying *****.

    This is kind if old news isn't it?

    Wizards already doesn't work with people who are critical of them(other than the professor) so it's just more of the same.

    How many of the people actually affected by this are complaining? Because random uninvolved people being angry isn't relevant.

    It's possibly a problem but it's very difficult to care.
