    I'm not proud, I just know how things stand. That's how it is. And it wasn't just kids, age's got nothing to do with it. I was a kid, many of them were older than I was. You either understand magic well enough to tell good cards from the bad, or You get ripped off by me. It never meant anything other than that.

    Fixed that for you.

    I don't think the boxes are mappable I think that WoTC is doing a different method for distributing cards. If they want less volatility, they can change the spread of cards in the boxes to make fewer blow out boxes. It kills God box phenomena, but it hypothetically leads to less feel bad moments. I just don't think they have enough good mythic and rares in this set.

    There may be some truth to this. I watched my shop open three cases of MM17, and every box seemed to follow the same pattern - either 3+ fetchlands, or at least two of Goyf/Lily/Snapcaster. Some boxes would have either damnation or goblin guide (but never both) and 1 fetch + 1 money mythic. The box I bought had 4 fetches and a goblin guide. It was pretty well assumed at our store that the map was set up intentionally to have fetches on one end, the mone mythics on the other, and damnation/GG one the sides so no box was a complete dud. Granted 13 boxes is a small sample, but most people seemed to have similar experiences when asked.

    Given who the source is and the complete lack of corroboration, I'm going to assume that this is Rudy being Rudy.

    Well, I don't know about that, my box had only 1 fetch and 1 goblin guide, my three mythics were garbage (Past in Flames, Sphinx's Revelation and Bonfire of the Damned). I was so disappointed that I still haven't even opened my second box and I'm considering waiting to resell it later at a higher price.

    Thats funny because that was the EXACT contents of my second MM17 box I opened when I should have saved it after my first which had four fetches blood moon goblin guide Snappy, VoR, Cavern and a foil Snappy. I thought what the hell I did PRETTY well on the first one might as well crack this one too. Wish I wouldve saved it.

    While it might not be mappable or a production thing it seems Most of the Masters sets are either God boxes or Junk, not much in the middle. Eternal had people cracking Jace,Crypt and Karakas OR like me only 2mythics that were Worldgorger and Balance.

    The randomization may or may not be a problem BUT the printing QUALITY IS an issue.
    Kaladesh was terrible, some faded washed out cards, some looking like double Bold printing. Iconic has the same problem with super bold typing on some cards and ink spots and it seems it will be an issue with A25. That is something WOTC could and SHOULD get a handle on. Its very noticeable and some cards even appear and feel fake straight from the boosters.

  • posted a message on So based on the leaks, do we have an idea of the plot of Dominaria yet?
    Well, we have a new planeswalker swearing the Oath and a Bolas-themed card, so I dare say it's going to be more of what we've been seeing recently: hang around, deal with dangling subplots (Liliana's demons), strengthen bonds, get some character development, recruit new allies for the Gatewatch, and interfere in Bolas' minor/side plans while preparing for the final showdown with him. Which is totally fine by me because I personally love stories told this way.

    I think that pretty much will cover it. Terriblething is we could have already guessed that long ago because it is the SOP

    I don't know if I'm late to the party, but as we know there will be new frames for legends. Do you think they may make some pseudo expedition/masterpiece style cards of legends from the past and in the Dominaria? Like a Karthus, Captain Sisay, Umezawa's Jitte, or Academy Ruins?

    In past sets that had masterpieces, there was a substantial paragraph in the release notes talking about them. Well, we've seen the release notes for Dominaria, and they have no such thing. So I would think it unlikely that there's a Masterpiece series here.

    And that is dissapointing........for now Dominaria only gets half my checking account instead of all of it.

  • posted a message on How do you feel about the Dominaria Leaks?
    I am indifferent on the leaks.
    No one is forcing anybody to read the thread or the Release notes document.
    If you dont want know, dont read it.

    So in this site's latest flavor article, one of the creators of the Ixalan storyline says this:

    Ixalan is structured as a farce. A farce is built on physical humor, clambering characters, exaggeration and horseplay. After the serious nature of Amonkhet, we wanted to deliver a completely different tone, hence the farcical structure. The plot doesn’t really matter in a farce – what matters is the characters and the relationships between them, and that was true in Ixalan; the point isn’t the race, it’s the themes. Power is rewarded with punishment in a farce, and our two most powerful characters in the narrative (Kumena and Azor) are rewarded for their hubris with comic defeats. Kumena in particular had a comically short reign because in a farce, he’s the comically incompetent character – the bodacious up-and-comer who thinks he is a great revolutionary, only to be cut short by literally being thrown out the window. There are plenty of other fun tropes to play with, too! Angrath is the furious and tone-deaf patriarch, Huatli is the naïve youth, Mavren Fein is the obnoxious puritan, and what happens to Jace and Vraska is a play on the trope of lovers with mistaken identities. Playing with genre in fantasy is fun, and opened up new spaces we wouldn’t have found without approaching it with farcical playfulness.

    So if anybody was wondering about the decisions they made with storytelling ....and Why Kumena, Azor and Vona got PWNED so comically... this should explain things a bit.

    your thoughts?

    I think their explanation is a farce.
    None of what they talked about was percieved by any of us it seems.
    Just another excuse to explain bad writing unfortunately

    In these dark times of overpriced under delivered masters sets and Standard banning controls, those of us wished for better times. Times of the glorious past. And we turned to Garfield. And Garfield said 'let there be light', and there was light, and it was good.
