I'm still holding out on a Phyrexian Altar reprint in Ultimate Masters at either Rare or Mythic since it recently climbed to $55.00.
Well it won’t be at Mythic. We’ve been told all mythics in the main set are among the box toppers, so if there was no box topper Altar (there wasn’t) there’s no Mythic altar.
I’m with you - hoping for a rare. But thinking it unlikely. I’m not the negative-nancy that thinks all the remaining rares are Triskaidekaphobia. But I do believe every rare above $40 is quite likely already accounted for. If they had slated PA for this set, they quite likely would have made it among the box toppers.
Rumor is there's a reprint of Defense of the Heart and Food Chain.
Worth noting--boxes on TCGP have been falling by $10 each day since the announcement. Stores either know something we don't or are very pessimistic.
I also think it's quite amusing to see people surprised that the MSRP has gone up.
MM1, $8.00/pack MSRP, people bought it out
MM2, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought it out
EMA, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought it out
MM3, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought it out
IMA, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought enough
M25, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought enough
MED, $10.00/pack MSRP, people bought it out
UMA, $14.00/pack MSRP, people will buy it out
Why would WotC/Hasbro have any incentive to start reducing prices?
