    The legendary creatures I'm still waiting for:

    Never had a card -
    - 4th Sister of the Innistrad Archangels
    - Asha, the ruler of Bant
    - Atraxa before becoming Atraxa
    - ... A 5 color identity angel so I can use Maelstrom Archangel in an angel tribal deck...

    Had a card, but really need a new version -
    - Gabriel Angelfire
    - Selenia, Dark Angel
    - Radiant, Archangel

    Really hoping we will get at least 1 of those.

    This is most probably what will happen a few months from now:
    "Pioneer Horizons"
    Crappy reprints with a few poorly tested new cards and even less chase cards at mythic all for triple or quadruple the price of regular boosters and half the card quality coming in early-mid 2020!
    If we are "lucky" they will also add a collector's version that costs 10 times the regular price and is still choke full of draft garbage, but will have cards with a slightly different border or with art that is actually original.

    ... Just... Why making them Japan exclusive?
    EDIT: at least Feather is not alternate-art, so I can just ignore them completely.

    Costs near nil to make, will be sold out almost instantly because idiots and their money are easily parted.
    WotC must love this easy money.

    Quote from Sneasel007 »

    That being said, $450 is a monstrous price. It isn't hurting anybody for existing, though, so I don't see much need to get worked up over a product I'll never buy.

    I disagree with it not hurting anybody. Maybe not today but I tell you with the direction of the "specialty" products that it could be harmful later on. Just like loot boxes in video games, they weren't hurting anybody at first but eventually it became a necessity to play games to compete. I could see WoTC sneaking in playable cards only obtainable in these specialty products. I hope not but with how much WoTC is digging into the pockets, it wouldn't surprise me.
    They are already sneaking in standard playable cards in ancillary products while at the same time making them unobtainable unless you buy the ancillary product or the collector boosters.
    The slippery slope is already there and we already started sliding down.

    The legendary mythic green artifact is The Great Henge in case you missed the spoilers that were added a little after this thread was opened.

    Whelp... This means no angels in the set. Nice to know for my wallet.

    Personally, I'm ok with that.
    I'm really fed up by the idea that in many decks (and all multi-color decks) the manabase is one of the most expensive parts while at the same time being the most important part of the deck if you don't want your chance to win to go down the drain.
    When you can reliably pull off 3 and 4 color decks with almost every multi-color land coming into the battlefield UNTAPPED, then there is something wrong with the balancing (personal opinion, obviously).

    Am I the only one who thinks that being able to beast within your opponent's best creatures and/or artifacts as a +1 is a little pushed?

    Presale starting at 29 Euros on Cardmarket... Sweat
    just wait after the deck releases, then.
    Or just buy the deck itself.
    Presale prices are always extremely high for some cards, especially if the card has been spoiled just a few hours/minutes prior.

    Then let's say, all tournament legal cards have the usual MtG back and generally promos are tournament legal.

    Quote from Xcric »
    when there's so many different websites, channels, and feeds getting previews that you need to publish an article to track them all, its time to rethink how you ******* preview things.

    sweet ******* jesus. no one is going to go to all that ***** to see some damn spoilers. they're going to just go somewhere that shows them all at once.

    their spoiler strategy sucks so much dick and is beyond obnoxious now.
    That's why I ignore all of them and just look at spoilers on sites like this one or on mythic spoilers or mtgpics.
    I can't stand most of the youtube videos with spoilers (apart from Desolator, at least his commentary is funny sometimes), I neither have the will nor the time to watch long boring streams on twitch just to look at a low-quality screencap of a card and I can't be bothered with Twatter.

    At least this time they will spoil an entire deck each day starting from august 5.

    Quote from cyberium_neo »
    I suppose eBook is better than no book. :3
    If it is the same quality as War of the Spark, then no book is better... Way better.
    Not counting that the WotS book wasn't even complete because "screw you, you whale who bought our book thinking it would have been a good and complete product".

    Quote from NZB2323 »
    I’m not sure how much of the blame should go to Greg Weismann. He had to write about dozens of characters and conclude a story arch that different authors have been creating, and I have a feeling his writing was micromanaged by a bunch of people.
    It may be his style, but I've listened to an excerpt of one of his Star Wars books and... It was an awful mess of periods with random punctuation trying to mimic a stream of consciousness and failing miserably, so... I would say that even without micromanagement the book would have been a literary disaster.

    Quote from Ryperior74 »

    Yea but can he do it with 0% powers as well

    I don’t think so.
    Don't worry, if WotC wants to have Bolas back in the future, they will just write a deus ex machina to restore him to his former glory.
    Same way as they wrote back Teferi's spark into the story, because... Teferi.

    This said, I hopere there will be no major overarching plotline. It makes things old and stale, while having loosely related stand-alone stories allows for a more expansive exploration of the multiverse without having everythng to converge to a single final moment that will most likely be another overhyped garbage fire like War of the Spark.

  • posted a message on Next set is called "Throne of Eldraine"
    Not sure about that. It could be a prominent tribe, but not have real tribal support, like Angels in the Innistrad block.
    On the other hand, it would be nice to have knights in colors different from black and white.

  • posted a message on Next set is called "Throne of Eldraine"
    I imagine it will be just one.
    For how they described the new way they are doing sets (when they removed blocks) cases like Ravnica will be the exception and not the rule.
    Would sound a little strange having them saying "Now we are doing 1-set = 1-plane unless narrative decisions require more sets" then have it apply only for 1 story-driven set (core sets do not really count) in the 2 years after the announcement.
