Magic Market Index: Hit Over Miss
  • posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 9-17 two mythics
    Now we're talking. Divine Visitation would go well in quite a few of my decks, and Thousand-Year Storm seems fun (not to mention I actually have a Mizzix Commander deck).

    Darn. Trostani v2 seems kind of underwhelming, honestly, and she doesn't feel all that legendary or mythic.

    The only problem is, Panharmonicon requires you choose only that mode, though you can target the same thing twice, but still...

    It does? I would have thought based on wording that you could choose two different modes for the two triggers.

    The card itself seems okay. I really like the artwork, and I'm glad that we're getting some dryads (especially on Ravnica, which definitely has my favorite dryads).

    I'm never the guy that bashes a set based on early spoilers, but I gotta say barring maybe 4-5 cards everything we've gotten so far feels like DGM leftovers. Not hyped at all so far.

    Yeah, I feel really underwhelmed too. I know that we've still only seen a fraction of the set, but 114/259 is still a decent number, and like...aside from the planeswalkers, Neo Abrupt Decay, and the not-really-hexproof 6/6 for 4, I barely even remember the cards we've seen so far, let alone am excited for them. And Return to Ravnica was my favorite set for a long time, so it seems even more disappointing than most weak-looking sets.

    Weird card. I would have rather just had a plain 5/5 hexproof creature with no other abilities or something, but at worst, it's still a 4-mana 6/6 that can't be discarded.

    Yes, it is. Would it have to be rare if it cost 5GG instead?

    It really irks me that Arboretum Elemental costs that much mana. Convoke usually only adds 1, maybe 2 to the cost, right? This looks like it costs at least 3 more than base.

    Ugh. Another horrendously undercosted kill spell. Hopefully, it will also be very expensive.

    Eldrazi Conscription doesn't actually put counters on anything, just gives a static buff, so it remains unaffected. If the Aura mentioned counters (see Shape of the Wiitigo, for instance), then Doubling Season would affect those.

    Booster box is $100 or so, right?

    But this only gives you 2/3 of a booster box, so you'd need another $30 or so to break even.

    The market will correct itself when tons of singles sellers and LGS go out of business, leaving only the ones that are the most robust in the wake of it all.

    Wouldn't that actually make the secondary market even worse because the remaining businesses would have less competition?

    Also, I wouldn't want to live in a world where StarCityGames, ChannelFireball, and Card Kingdom are the only options; I've always found StarCityGames to be overpriced, and I've heard that the other two aren't trustworthy. Give me TCGPlayer or mtgmintcard any day.

  • posted a message on [GRN] Emmara, Soul of the Accord
    To be fair, original Emmara was supposed to be a 2/2. She and Voice of Resurgence just got changed last-minute.

    Well, Gideon, Chandra, and Kaya are obvious, but who's the fourth person? A new character, I take it?

  • posted a message on [GRN] Emmara, Soul of the Accord


    I figured we'd get a new Emmara. She's definitely designed with convoke in mind, but she's not very exciting. Also, does her title seem worded oddly to anyone else, like the "the" shouldn't be there? Her artwork in nice, though I think I liked the art on her first card better.

    Watch, this set will sell like hotcakes, and then that is that for shocks. The prices haven't moved in years, still a huge supply, we haven't absorbed RtR. Now in 6 years when they go back again, it won't be worth it to print these. They are done being worth a pack.
    Good. Dual lands that you need to play the game shouldn't be over $10 a piece. WotC can reprint them until they're cents and I'll still be happy. I can always use more Shocklands.

    About time somebody said this about expensive high-demand cards instead of "waaaaahhhh my collection will drop in value waaaahhh".

    Then again, the shocklands aren't nearly as much of an edge over other dual lands in casual play as they are in competitive, so I can take or leave them being in the set.
