    They're in collector's booster as well and japanese regular boxes have some.

    I think they're only in Collector Booster and "Box Topper" boosters, and only first-print run versions of those products at that. I don't think the Godzilla Series cards are in regular booster packs but I could be wrong about that.


    Thank you both. Now that wasn't too difficult, was it (not aimed at Trainmaster or Flaming Infinity)... it was like it was secret info where if it is out in the open, there'll be less copies to hoard... what, do all of you think you're Smaug all of a sudden?

    Really???? Over 140 views and no one has an answer... hard to believe. Not even an admin. has answered... is this site being run by a skeleton crew since all the rats fled the ship?


    Well, better no answer than a wrong one i suppose.

    A answer is better than NO answer. Because a wrong answer will draw an answer from another, then another, then another, then someone responds... And heeeyyy look, a conversation. We're in freakin' quarantine here... people have time on their hands. Talk it up.

    Before I spend unnecessary money to get copies, curious about where the Death Corona can be found? When scrolling through the Dawnglare website, it is listed as a "Buy-a-Box" promo. Will this one ONLY be a BaB or can it be found in one of the Collector's booster packs?

    Thanks for the clarification from whomever answers Smile

  • posted a message on How to get 2 Keyword counters @ the same time from 1 creature
    Quote from willdice »
    Only if it's from a triggered ability that triggers when a permanent enters the battlefield.

    Boot Nipper has a static ability with a replacement effect. It is not a trigger, so Yarok doesn't double it.


    Wait, so were these worded this way so one cannot get two triggers from casting them? Are there any other ways to get both of the triggers?

    So, let me get this straight... this should work, right? If I have Yarok, the Desecrated in play, I can get both of the triggers for the Keyword Counters, right?

  • posted a message on The Coronavirus Pandemic and the Future of the Local Game Store (LGS)
    There are already a few promising "cures"/synthetic antibiotics in the making for covid-19. So the knee-jerk panic that a "cure" (so to speak) is months, if not years away is now false information.

    Having an actual card in your hand, something tangible and solid will always feel more real, more permanent and collectible aspect of a TCG. Just as it is a different feeling to pop in a CD or put the needle to a spinning record, there is a sense of ownership and pride to hold it in your hand and actual say/think "this is mine." And because we will always have that psychological& emotional connection, we will typically/usually need a place to compete and be social animals w/ said objects. The LGS will always be that central hub. No Starbucks, Barnes & B\Noble, or fast food joint will ever compare. The LGS may be a bear in hibernation, but once things warm up & the suns comes out from behind the clouds, social gatherings to play Magic will resume. Arena, Untap.in, Magic Online, etc... will all just be "in the meantime" to hold us over.

  • posted a message on Is the ways releases/reprints coincide always planned, or is it kismet, aka a happy coincidence?
    So w/ Magic Mystery Packs, Queen Marchesa was reprinted. I happen to be lucky enough to have gotten one via Puca Trade. Now w/ Ikoria, there is a small humans sub-theme among Mardu colors. This works out amazing for me, especially since my Marchesa Commander deck is not only w/ the "humans" sub-theme, but human tokens, which is also part of the Ikoria set and Ikoria Commander.

    How much of this is coincidence and how much of it is planned out? (and if it is planned out, why do I feel like a sheep being corralled,lol...)

  • posted a message on IKORIA- Companion Rules, have to follow as a Commander?
    Only reason why this is going up her, opposed to the Commander discussion area is because it is a new keyword.

    When using a "Companion" as the actual Commander, not the "101st" card, do the Companion rules still need to be followed? Asking this because I do like how a few of them are, w/ unique abilities. BUT I do not not want the limitations of only casting it once from it's "zone" and not be able to cast it from the "Command Zone."

    I do not want to jump to any conclusion here, but it seams the Companion rule only applies to when it is being used as a companion... right?

  • posted a message on PSA: Ikoria and Commander 2020 may have their release pushed back even further than May 15th, 2020 due to the Coronavirus virus
    Would this mean the previews will also get pushed back? I apologize ahead of time if this has been addressed in this post or another, but upon surface scratching of the posts, do not remember reading it and it happens to be late, so I am too tired/lazy to read all replies. Thanks in advance...

  • posted a message on [THB] Possibilty of "God" Pack
    Have you been watching Rudy open THB Collector's Booster boxes? Upwards of 11 mythics (alone!) in the box of 12 packs... these are naturally in the shape of a God pack. The online EV of a booster box has dropped to the $60's/$70's because of this. As much as I'd like the chance for a God pack, it would be overshadowed by the current state THB is at.

  • posted a message on Commander legends speculation
    Not going through the whole thread to see if anyone has posted this, but here are my wants/hopes:

    - ANY of the Uncommon legends from Legends, w/ updated themes and tribal love
    - Updates on the legends from Homelands, but (also) more synergistic love Irini Sengir anyone? Make Joven way more playable.
    - Revist Legendary Lands and see how they've evolved (Pendelhaven, Sorrow's Path, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion (it was noted that MaRo had wished these were legendary. I know they we not in any of the last 2 return sets, but as a Commander product, would really make sense).
    - Return of Epic spells
    - Legendary cycle of tri-lands w/ all 3 land types (betting on friendly colors first)
    - In before anyone else (I hope!) the Nephilim from OG Ravnica. Didn't see them on the last two visits.
    - Some legendary Lords for unrepresented creature types, like apes, goats, horrors, nightmares, skeletons, scouts, archons, squid, homarrid (c'mon, bring on more crab people, lol), nymphs, ouphes, plants, viashino, etc...
    - As well as Lords about keywords, such as: enchantment creatures, deathtouch, prowess, haste, etc...
    - Support for preexisting creature types that are low on said creature type, like homarrids (if a lord is created), squid, satyr, dwarf, nightmare, viashino, etc...
    - Weapons/equipment that were named weapons that had just an ability/tap ability that didn't before: Sword of the Ages, Ring of Immortals, Staff of Domination, Celestial Sword, Runesword, Zelyon Sword, Dingus Staff, Proteus Staff, Staff of Nin, Staff of Zegon, Thunderstaff, Disrupting Scepter, Gustha's Scepter, Belbe's Armor, Flowstone Armor, Power Armor and Urza's Armor, just to name a few.
    - item types for equipment, such as swords, shields, lanterns, masks, etc...
    - Legendary equipment from old school legends that are on the reserved list, like Ertai's staff, Lord of Tresserhorn's axe, Angus Mackenzie's Staff, Bartel Runeaxe's axe, Lysa, Dawnbringer's polearm, Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran's sword, Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig's hammer [I know I said old school, but for sure newer legends can be represented too], or the two swords of Karona, False God.

    This is an amazing chance to tie in the old school and the new school, since a lot of the spotlight has shifted away from the 90's sets.

    Can really take advantage of the discarded cards w/ reanimation options, flashback, and cards that play from the graveyard. Will make for an interesting Commander build.

  • posted a message on THB: Nadir Kraken
    I, for one, like that it's a 3cc that starts off as a 2/3. Kraken themed decks are slow and needed some quickness to survive. Not to mention it interacts w/ a lot of different casual deck styles, like card draw, tokens, +1/+1 counters, and sacrifice (the tokens, of course).

    Strange how many of the first responders here immediately point out the 2/3 body. It fills niches and I love the idea of independent tentacles breaking off and causing havoc.
