    Hmm, noticed that singles pre-order price of this card is slowly climbing. Started off as 1.49 on SCG a few days ago, yesterday it's 2.00, today it's 2.49.


    Yeah, this is gonna hit $5 or more at release, it's instant card draw for red, the color that usually doesn't even get card draw.


    Which is why I intend to pre-order while it's still in the 2 dollar something range. Smile

    Anyway, we will be testing this in our RW Modern Burn.. clearly not a 4 of, but maybe 2 to start. An opponent would only probably give the draw 3 if they would die from 4 damage, so the home of this card should be a burn deck.. where the rest of deck also pressures the opponent. In theory, they give the draw, I draw more Burn which will end the game - however, that's only in theory... needs some real tests to know the real value of this card.


    Better sell it quick before it goes under the 1 USD where these cards normally are. As soon as supply starts to climb the price will go down.

    I may be wrong but I don't see "until end of turn" here.


    I think you are wrong because I see one.

    Is this thing going to be getting day 1 errata or something?"


    Have you ever heard or seen a Magic card getting an errata in order to change the power level of a card?


    Erratas are for mistakes like Walking Atlas where they forgot to add artifact to the supertype:
    https://scryfall.com/card/wwk/131/walking-atlas

    Or for Invert//Invent where they forgot to add "Until end of turn." to the card:

    Multiple is 2 or more.

    Interested in hearing how you know where the set's design wants to be. I guess Maro neglected to mention netn10 when introducing the design team.
    We can do basic math? 10 Cluestones (1 out of every 7 commons) in a 156 card set will be more likely to double/triple/quadruple pack than 5 Lockets in 259 (254 unique) cards in Guilds.

    Now, we still don't know if Gates are on the Land slot or not, if they aren't then there is a concern that you have 15 common color fixers in the set proper. But the set is still a hundred extra cards deep so you still shouldn't be getting quadruple color fix in packs on the regular. And if Gates are on the land slot (there are zero basic lands in the count proper for Guilds) then it is just the chances of two lockets in a pack. Which is non-zero, yes, but shouldn't be a regular occurrence.

    (We don't know what the common/uncommon/rare breakdown is on Guilds yet, so I did not include that info like I did on DGM.)


    You completely forgot the only sentence that mattered:

    “I'll rank them lower then signet and higher then cluestone, and that's exactly where this set's design wants to be.”

    No they meant poisonous 10 because the creature gives 10 poison counters when it connects. Its a joke thematic to the walker that would be nice to see


    But it isn’t thematic.

    She doesn’t poison anyone to death. Gorgons petrifize their targets by looking at them and thus turning them to stone. It would be a flavor fail if she gave out poison.

    Wouldn’t it be..boring..to get a return to Theros right after a Return to Ravnica just like last time?

    I want to see Theros again but I kind of hope it will not be in the exact same order as last time.

    We have previously seen Basic lands depict certain locations on other planes. Amonkhet had the monuments, the desert and Bolas horns etc.

    On Dominaria:
    Is it the same?

    Here are the four Dominaria Basic Forests (On the second one you can see The Weatherlight in the air.)

    Example: Is any of these Forests depicting Llanowar? Any of them Krosa?

    How about the other four Basic land types?

    I've been saying for forever that this is exactly how Magic cards should look, planeswalker or otherwise. I'm so happy to see these exist.

    Have you seen some cards made in this style? Check out the one for Mystical Tutor. Phenomenal.

    I don't really understand how some people can be upset about these.


    I do not think anyone is upset about these.

    I believe some people wanted to see new things and not reprints. Or maybe both new things and reprints.

    I am personally indifferent.

    I guess there will be more than just 1 of each?

    Did the other 3 or 4 get spoiled?

    Well, I guess I was wrong. I guessed that Wizards would release a new set of dual lands this time around since I figured another go at the shocklands would be kind of stale. (That, and they're still relatively inexpensive, so not printing them again would mean more fodder down the line for future Masters sets.)

    I guess that, while I am a bit disappointed seeing another batch of shocklands, I am grateful that the price of these things will absolutely plummet, and virtually everyone will be able to afford a set of these things without breaking the bank.

    I don't think they're going to drop off by a lot. Consider that Standard legality will increase the demand for them. There are plenty of players who don't have shocklands yet and there's recent precedent (with the KTK fetches) of Standard demand causing a price spike. I think their comparatively higher availability will mean the price doesn't go up as much (and probably goes down overall) but I don't expect it to move all that much.
    Yeah Polluted Delta spiked super hard from $99.99 to $12.


    Polluted Delta was only available in Onslaught and Judge foils. The Shock lands are already available in Ravnica, Ravnica 2 and Masterpiece. Logically speaking your argument is not very strong.

    Do you have other arguments?
