The thing that stood out for me is the 4 exclusive secret lairs for members, that would make the FOMO big for many people.
I don't live in the US, and I have bought 2 secret lairs so far, one the first one I got help from a friend who brought me the goods from the US, the second I got was secretversary, I spent 100 on shipping of two non foil bundles. I am not a store but my intention was to sell 5 drops and keep 3 that I really wanted and come out without loosing money. I sold 5 and covered all my expenses, the 3 I kept were basically free. So now I am considering to dedicate my self to importing secret lairs to my country and make some bucks so maybe this subscription offers something interesting, but it will depend a lot on the secret lairs, so far I think I have good "eye" to choose the most desirable ones, but if they flood the market it is going to be more difficult.

Mar 26, 2021"Mystical Archive cards will be legal in Historic (but not Standard), though seven will not join the format due to power-level concerns—this includes Swords to Plowshares and Demonic Tutor. While we've let the folks previewing cards know whether it will be legal in Historic (and they can share that as part of previewing the card), it's easy to miss those notes in all the excitement."Posted in: The Rumor Mill
So far not legal:
Swords to Plowshares
Mar 4, 2021If people complaining leave the game...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
it means their enjoyment of the game went down a lot because of the external IP, so all the other things magic has going for were out weighted.
It seems like a tantrum really, you drop your enjoyment because one addition to the game, maybe you didn't enjoy the game that much in the first place. Anyway, seems like something deeper going on, I would talk with my therapist for sure.

Mar 1, 2021Standard won't get this UB stuff BTW, and by result neither modern or pioneer.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
There is a big difference in choosing not to buy this UB stuff and leaving a table. It is one thing to be emotionally invested in the game, but how much is healthy anyway? Like if we are getting so triggered about a foreign Ip getting some cards in our beloved game that it gets us so mad that we quit and stop playing with other people?
If you are really not enjoying the game anymore why are you still playing it? are you in an abusive relationship with WotC?
To me all this reaction is overblown and then shows a lot of issues about how and why we engage with this game. Does really a decission like this has to make us so unhappy? does it really destroys the experience?
Or maybe is just internet era drama where we have to get all up in arms over everything. Either way I really think this doesn't take away anything from the actual game, the immersion argument seems weird given than the magic universe is already all over the place, from tolkien influence in Dominaria, to steampunk in Kaladesh, to lovecraft in zendikar eldrazi's and then all the other planes that borrow from pop culture.
My guess is that in the future there would be a Non UB format for commander where is the only significant format that will get to play with this cards anyway.
Mar 1, 2021Wow, people are so hurt by this, basically the equivalent of 10 years old arguing over which is the better console. You remind me of the bullies which used to mock other kids because of their hobbies.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
And it is going to be even more shocking when this products have a large success and you see new players coming with their UB cards.
When all is said and done this products will bring new players, hope they are engaged and get more in to magic, I am going to welcomed them because sharing a hobby is nice, looking forward to teach them about the 25 years of magic history.

Nov 26, 2020Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from leslak »I hate that those will come now, honestly i wanted a litle more time, kinda hard go all in in those with less than 1 week to be read (and with end of the year near). Those are probably the best drops they did in this whole line, kinda glad but worried xP
They announced your payment method wont be charged until the goods are ready to ship if that makes a difference.

The white and blue will see play in standard control I would think, maybe even pioneer.
The green is for ramp decks.
The black needs a dedicated shell and maybe it finds place in the mono black aggro deck in pioneer,
