  • posted a message on Universes Beyond Officially Discontinued for MTG?
    As per https://gizmodo.com/magic-the-gathering-unveils-its-first-lords-of-the-rin-1847554882

    Of course, the most anticipated release is Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth, which unfortunately won’t be out until 2023. These will be a “full Magic set release,” meaning they are official cards that can be used in most tournament formats— Tales of Middle-earth cards will be playable in the game’s alternate “Historical” and “Modern” formats, but not the yearly-updated rotational “Standard” format that focuses on otherwise-current card sets. But, unsurprisingly, the Lord of the Rings/Magic: The Gathering collab is getting a huge push from Wizards of the Coast. As the company puts it:

    “Gandalf, Gollum, Frodo, Aragorn—the characters you know will immerse you in Middle-earth as you battle for the One Ring, scheme with Saruman, or journey to the heights of Mount Doom. Coming to tabletop, Magic Online, and MTG Arena—plus four Commander decks and special Secret Lair drops—this set will be available everywhere you play.”

    I was already fatigued and then WOTC had to say that they're raising prices starting with this set to make sure that I stop buying. I'll take a look again when LOTR set gets here next year. Until then, I'm done.

    I'm surprised we didn't get D&D version of Demogorgon & will have to settle for a Stranger Things Secret Lair version.

    With what's been shown so far, unless they have something like Jhoira's Timebug for getting through Dungeons faster, playing Dungeons is like playing with the "Party" mechanic from Zendikhar Rising, too slow. It might be great flavorwise for the players that want that though. They can have "Party", "Level Up" and "Dungeons" for the trifecta.

    I assume we'll get the Stranger Things versions of Demogorgon & Mindflayers and then later Magic (D&D) version of them.

    Is the giant eye behind the canticle suppose to represent Sauron, a giant Beholder or Tourach?

  • posted a message on Crazy Prices for MH2?
    I don't know where you're shopping, but I've found them for less. Set boxes are on Ebay for under $250 and Collector box for under $390. Ordered a draft box from my LGS for $220= $235 with tax. Just because places list it for high prices, doesn't mean people have to buy it for those prices. Aside from Ebay, there are several places that have had them listed for about a month now. Look for them when they're first announced or shortly thereafter. Also, I've already ordered several boxes of the Adventures of the Forgotten Realms set & it doesn't come out for another 2 months. It just takes a little work to save money if you want to spend on these. Otherwise, you can save a lot of money by not buying any.

    Quote from Lectrys »
    Looking at Wizards's Banned and Restricted lists, the most likely candidate for "a legendary character best known for having his name on a powerful card (that’s been banned) finally gets a legendary creature" is, perhaps sadly, Tourach of Hymn to Tourach fame. Hymn to Tourach is banned from Pauper and is powerful enough to still see play in Legacy.

    Alternately, Oko technically fits the above statement and has had a card of his banned in multiple formats...but Oko has no nostalgia trip value, so I'm cheering for Tourach.


    Yeah, I would think this instead of Quoz, from Amulet of Quoz, seeing as how that wasn't a powerful card.

    They can also keep going with Tiamet & just have the Dragonlance version, Takhisis.

    Now that Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman have kissed & made up with WOTC, maybe in the future, instead of the Further Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, we'll get Adventures of Dragonlance, so that we can get Raistlin, Sturm, Tanis & the rest. Then Wizards can continue to add to the confusion of Kithkin, Halflings & Hobbits by having Kender (Tasslehoff).

    Aside from Drizzit & the whole gang, Wulgar, Regis, etc, I would hope more to see Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle.

    Maybe a Yochol, as a precursor to Loth. Then maybe they'll expand and add Drizzit and the whole gang.

    The Collector box creature seems like a 3-eyed, Lord of Ropers from D&D

    The picture on the Collector box looks like a creature from D&D which is the set coming out just after it, so it could be a preview of more creatures to come. When I first saw it though, it reminded me of Thrakkorzog from the original Tick the Animated Series.
