    Right, AB cards are in high demand because of nostalgia and the fact that all other printings of many of the cards in AB were in white boarder. However, the price disparity between many of the cards, at the same or lower rarity, is because of 93/94. If you consider cards that are iconic, like Lord of the Pit, Nightmare, Force of Nature, and Demonic Hordes, you will see that their pricing is around $200-$300. Just like my example of Lord of Atlantis from above, these cards are almost nonexistent in 93/94, yet cards like Jayemdae Tome and Disrupting Scepter are worth $400+. Why is this? They are all Alpha/Beta rares and are basically terrible cards by today's standards. Yet Scepter and Tome are worth considerably more; even double in some cases. The reason why Scepter and Tome are worth more, is because of 93/94 playability. Both cards are played in one of the top decks in the format, called "The Deck". http://www.eternalcentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/JonHammackECOSEW17Deck.jpg


    Thanks for pointing this out. When I was a kid, I remember saving up $60 to purchase a single pack of legends, the last pack the store had. This was a few years after legends came out, which is why is was so expensive even then. The rare I opened was recall. I was disappointed at the time, since it was one of the less valuable rares because it was reprinted in chronicles. Still I never got rid of it. Now Becasue of this 93/94 format that your post just made me aware of, I looked it up and it’s a card that’s around $100. Still not the best legends rare to have opened, but hey, it’s nice to know I made my childhood $60 back.

    I think Chord of Savagery is good, but perhaps a little too powerful. The combination of being unable to interact with it to remove it, giving creatures flash and also making them indestructible during combat makes the card really powerful. I’d suggest maybe only granting indestructible to attacking creatures, since Gruul doesn’t really care about defense. That way flashing in creatures to make surprise blocks will result in more trades rather than total blowouts. Then again the card may be perfectly fine at it is, since I get the feeling it’s a card that needs play testing to gage it’s actual power level.

    Maybe selfless Spirit should be in here somewhere. While return to the ranks is a good post board wipe plan, it still is blanked by Anger of the Gods, the spirit is a good answer to anger that can be tutored out at instant speed with Chord of calling.

    I think it is more about modal spells, like commands, charms, or:

    etc
    As with those cards you can have main board answears to very specific strategies that can either be a answear to a total diferent strategy but being really meh at it.


    I agree, I think it means that more modal spells will be included in future sets. It also might mean we’ll see the return of the Entwine mechanic from the original Mirrodin block (which are basically modal spells with a kicker-like cost that activates both modes).

  • posted a message on Ruhan of the Fomori: Aggro/Control
    I’m not sure if it’s ever been mentioned in this thread, but I’m building a Ruhan deck right now and I’ve been eyeing putting in a copy Earnest Fellowship. Obviously it’s a your milage may vary kind of card and has a chance of turning off your removal as well as opponent’s removal, but it makes Ruhan unblockable and untargetable by a vast swath of cards. Obviously a no-go if you’re relying on auras, Thassa’s ability or godsend but I feel it’s worth considering since it gives Ruhan protection from three colors and can give all color protection in conjunction with sword of feast and famine.

    Anyone have experience playing with it?

  • posted a message on Ramos, Dragon Engine + Altered Ego
    I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but Ramos, Dragon Engine is not a modern legal card. Wizard of the Coasts lists it as being legal in Legacy, Vintage, and commander. It has never been printed in a standard legal set, so it is not a part of the modern card pool. Cards printed in standard legal sets from 8th edition to the present are modern legal (barring the cards that have specifically put on the banned list for modern).

    The Lost Order, but it could be broken with Painter’s Servant, then again it wouldn’t be the first card broken by the servant and it’s casting cost is restrictive enough that I don’t think land destruction decks would want to use this. So I think it’s a good card as it is.

    Leyline of Treaties 2WU
    Enchantment
    If Leyline of Treaties is in your opening hand, you may start the game with it on the battlefield.

    When Leyline of Treaties enters the battlefield or if the game starts with Leyline of Treaties on the battlefield each player names a card other than a basic land. Named cards cannot be cast and if a named card would enter the battlefield, exile it instead.

    At any time you may reveal a named card from your hand, if you do put it onto the bottom of your library and draw a card.


    (The last ability only benefiting the card’s controller is intentional)

    I was actually wondering the other day if the 3rd set of the current Ravnica storyline, the one in which the current Bolas storyline will conclude, will do a lot more playing around with colors. I don’t mean I think it will be a 100% multicolor set, but perhaps it will be a tri-color set as certain guilds team up to either fight for or against Bolas.

    Here’s a way to think about this, your changeling wouldn’t get the +0/+1 buff from the drifter much in the same way mothdust changeling wouldn’t get the +1/+1 boost from bad moon, because Mothdust changeling is blue, not black.

    I still think it’s a little early for an actual date, but I could see them announcing which month or quarter to expect Arena to move out of it’s open beta and into an official 1.0 release.

    Frilled Basilisk is interesting. It’s power level sits in the nebulous region between Uncommon and Rare and it would be a total bomb in a limited environment, but no problem at all in constructed. I’d say you’d be good to knock it’s p/t down to 2/3 if you wanted it to be an uncommon, but if it was a rare I think 3/4 would be okay. The trample + deathtouch might be an issue at uncommon, not because of power level, but because I’d say about half the people I’ve played against in my LGS don’t know that trample + deathtouch means that a creature only needs to deal 1 to each blocker and the rest to the opponent. Overall a great card for teaching combat math intricacies.

    This next card has been in my head for the last few days and I can’t figure out if it’s busted or perfectly okay.
