Quote from JaishivaJai »Well those do seem better. Perhaps I'm doing the deck wrong. I mean with 2-4 opponents, that's a lot of life. Seems like Xenagos handles 2-3 opponents pretty well. It's those 5-6 player games that are of concern. Things have to go very well for you to deal around 240 damage before you die because everyone teams up against you.
Perhaps this deck is best relegated to 2-3 opponent games? Or am I just looking at this the wrong way still?
Quote from Melkor »I just think with previous buyouts and hoarding, it was Commander exclusives only in one deck. With a decent print run and a couple Zendikar fetches (and shocks or tango lands or something else chesp) in each one, there isn't a clear buyout target. It's not a group of 3-4 decks and people only want one. I think it would benefit people. Commander players who have them can recoup most of the deck value from Modern players and just keep what they want from it, and it's not a product that will be hoarded long term, as long as it makes sense, Modern players might buy them for the fetches and give Commander players really good deals on the rest. I know that when TNN came out, local Legacy players ended up basically subsidizing a good portion of the cost.
Of course this all depends on a proper print run. Just a handful per LGS doesn't help anyone, and not just in this scenario.
