I'm pretty sure I already read this rant with the almost exact same words somewhere else multiple times. If you're so much upset of how the game is today, maybe is better for you to not play it at all anymore and let the other people enjoy it.
Ah yes the good ol' "if you don't like it leave" logic, because you can't not like things in something you enjoy, because if you do then it means you hate it.
Actually that's the argument held by signofzeta. Since he likes and wants old precons, we must have old precons. No matter if old precons were faulty products useful almost to no one. No matter if the majority of people like commander precons more. No matter if wotc sells more commander precon. Everyone must discard commander precons and accept old precons because signofzeta said so. His multiple and long rants are worth more than the opinion of everyone else.
Ok, so everybody likes Commander, and that whoever prefers 60-card base rules deserve nothing. Not only that, everybody wants precons to cost $50 and not $15.
It's not about Theme Decks, Intro Packs, and Planeswalker decks anymore. It is about losing even more 60-card base rules precon options in favor of even more Commander decks, and also having more expensive precons outnumber the cheaper ones.
WOTC can release 100 Commander decks in a single year, and I wouldn't care about it. The only time I care and rant about it is if WOTC would rather release more Commander decks while releasing even less 60-card base rules precons, y'know, Theme Deck, Intro Pack, Planeswalker deck, Duel Deck, Event Deck, Clash Pack, Arena Starter Kits, Challenger decks etc. If WOTC can only limit themselves to a certain number of precons per year, and they would rather have almost all of them be Commander decks, while leaving close to nothing for 60-card base rules precons, I will rant about it.
2020, the first year that the set associated precons became Commander decks, we got 13 60-card base rules precons and 9 Commander decks.
In April of 2021, at the time I first ranted about this, we had 4 base rules precons and projected to have 15 Commander decks. We now have the Arena Starter kit and Pioneer Challenger decks, so the number of 60-card base rules precons went up to 10 instead of the 4 Standard Challenger decks we got, which made me start the rant.
Now the rant in this thread is what happens when the Pioneer Challenger decks fail. 2022 will project to have up to 20 Commander decks, while 2022 will guaranteed to have 4 60-card base rules precons. I don't know if there will be a 2022 Arena Starter kit, and I don't know if another set of 60-card base rules precons replace the failed Pioneer Challenger deck. I will rant if they are replaced by Commander decks despite already having 20 of them.
I'm ranting about how because everybody likes Commander, which is false, they get everything, while those who don't get nothing. Sure we get Challenger Decks for the Standard players, Pioneer Challenger decks for pioneer players, and NOTHING for casual 60-card base rules players, but what's to stop WOTC from going Commander, Commander, Commander, more Commander, and even more Commander, while those who prefer 60-card base rules precons get absolutely nothing?
Commander products print money and Wizards/Hasbro are 100% about the money.
I only buy singles and have fun playing the game with my friends. I more or less completely stopped caring about new releases.

Oh dear. It all goes wrong. Either Tovolar wins, or he is defeated but the vampires sweep in to claim the spoils from the mortals.
Nice cliffhanger, Wotc. I'm really liking this story.
Classic Marvel dropping teasers post credits to keep the consuming going.
Fairly boring set with very few cards I'll be interested in picking up.

And oh would you look at that, another evil religious white guy. Who would have thought Wizards would put that on a card lol.

Nah, Wizards would rather spend time and resources on giving nice variant cards to common crap people will barely even use in limited instead.

Sep 8, 2021Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from TheOnlyOne652089 »Quote from WarMachinePrime »The uncommons in this set continue to be uncommonly strong.
That because they shifted all the rares up to "mythic" and some rares down to uncommon, to make more room for some uncommons that became rares.
Rarity in this set is just random , they rolled a dice and thats the rarity the card got.
As an "instant" this would be a pretty good rare.
Sounds about right.
