Quote from Bolas, the Mindsculptor »Hmmmm....
What if certain players only wanted 1 or 2 for their collection?
This kinda stinks IMO...
I also find the idea of packaging 4 into 1 being more expensive as ludicrous. I thought that things that were repackaged together should be cheaper. I mean that's the definition of a deal, right?
Quote from Teysa_Karlov »It seems like a fun idea. A set built for drafting, with some cool draft-only mechanics.
Except the price point on a couple cards (Exploration, Misdirection) are fairly high, but it is cards like Council's Judgement and Dack that are bothering me.
If the prices on the individual cards go way up, the pack prices will jump as well. I've heard of a couple shops where the price per pack is expected to be $10-12. That makes drafting it prohibitively expensive for almost all players who it was intended to reach. Boxes are currently going for between $120 and $150.
Quote from Magnus_Warhol »It is not fear mongering, but a reality check of the fact that WotC reprints cards for their selfish reasons. They do not care about collectors. Its a capitalist society and I except nothing less from a company that prints a billion cards per set. Why dont they just leave the old cards alone? There is too much admiration and self-loving of mtg here and I think it is healthy to have a counter view. Its not all rosy...
Quote from The_ACBailouts divert money from some businesses to other businesses. The ones to which it gets diverted are public information, the ones from which it gets diverted are impossible to figure out.
