    Quote from DanzBorin »

    I didn't look up every card, but rough estimate puts both piles about even. With the Sea I'd snap take pile B.
    Concur. 2 FWB duals, one of which is a USea? I’m totally in on Pile B.

    What is this madness???

    You're looking at foil, not market foil. It probably sold out (there are only two listings at the time of this writing), and someone posted one at a ludicrous price.

    This kind of thing happens all the time.

    I was going through my old cards and found my artist proof Tolarian Academy. I got it at a junior super series tournament in Orlando a long, long time ago.

    Anyone know what the value would be for this thing? I tried looking online for proof value ideas and can't find anything within the last 5 years or so.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey there Onyxstorm, welcome to MTGS. Artist proof prices are pretty subjective. Academy is an objectively powerful card that is very popular, so I'd put it somewhere in the $25-$50 range. That's just a guess, though - I think that I paid about $20 for my copy, but that was a while ago.

    Side A:
    Mox Opal (SOM), NM
    $550 cash

    Side B:
    War of the Spark Mythic Edition

    There's no urgency on either side to open the Mythic Edition, so part of this question is: Will the price for WAR Mythic Edition drop over the next six months or so? (It's currently pretty easy to find it on ebay at the low 700s.)
    I’d take the Mythic Edition here, and it’s not close. I’ve seen some auctions close around $700, and I’ve resigned myself to $650 being my target price for pickup and that’s what is being offered, with part of it being tied up in an Opal. I don’t see it dropping below $650, even though I’m still hoping for $500 (yeah that’s a vain hope).

    Flusterstorm is now Modern legal.

    Discuss.


    Uhhh, Flusterstorm now costs more money. Nivmagus Elemental foils are worth a bit more- connected? (Is it legal NOW or when the set releases?)

    What cards do you think will move as a result of Force of Negation? Perhaps something goofy like Misthollow Griffin?

    The legality will change when the set releases.

    Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge are looking less and less goofy. It already combos with Food Chain in Legacy - if Food Chain gets reprinted into Modern, those will definitely spike.

    Quote from SpeedGrapher »
    I'm not sure what they could do to booster box value in such a high volume market. They make more money the more booster boxes they sell which results in lower single prices.

    They could taper down the printing a bit. But, like you said, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Cheap Standard boxes means cheap Standard singles, which means a lower bar to enter Standard. Seems like the correct move on their part - I for one LIKE lower-EV boxes.

    PERKS4ME is still a valid code. It doesn’t expire on 4/29, it expires at 11:59 PM Pacific on 5/2.

    I was able a few minutes ago able to pick up a Wilderness Reclamation foil for $9.25 after applying the coupon. Cheapest current price on TCGPLAYER is $13.64. Smile
    $3 ain’t much against a Mythic Edition, but you’re right; it still exists.

    Grrrrrr, I was really hoping for a coupon today.

    Oh wow, I haven't seen a set of those in forever. They're pretty cool. Unfortunately, that also means that I haven't seen a set for sale in forever. Price on this is "what you can get for it". Personally, I don't think that the set would go for over $20 (that's probably what I'd bid if I saw it on eBay), but YMMV.

    Hi Jerpy, welcome to MTGS!

    I think that asking at your LGS is the best way to make this happen. You don't even have to ask the store owner - you can just walk around with a box with a sign on it. "Building budget decks. Please donate bulk!" I guarantee that you'll get some people giving you their bulk for free.

    If you're near the location of a Grand PrixMagicFest, there are donation boxes around the hall and you can just rifle through them and take whatever you'd like.

    Unmask would've been a Story Spotlight card, if WOTC had made such a thing explicit, back in the day. It shows Takara, a member of the party, revealing herself to actually be Volrath, one of the major antagonists of the story.

    This is kinda an oddity I would say... Any thoughts?

    Anson signs cards through the mail, so no huge premium on that.

    3 is the minimum casting cost number of a PW. Tibalt was a failure and WotC isn't willing to make again that mistake.
    Also, not interested in extremely weak and boring CC1 walkers, since the uncommon ones are already weak enough.

    Don't dismiss the uncommon walkers out of hand. Saheeli looks really good to me, Tibalt actually has a role to play, Wanderer seems like she could be great in EDH, Narset is the Fun Police, and Jiang Yanggu can definitely enable shenanigans. These are all meant to be niche role-playing walkers, not generic "jam me in a deck and go!" walkers. You just have to find the right deck.

    Also, for purposes of this discussion, does Kytheon, Hero of Akros count? He's a great card that was printed at exactly the wrong time for Standard. If he'd been in RTR block, he would've been format-defining.

    Man, Last Supper vibes coming out of that art. Card is fairly decent too.

    No artist credit yet, but I'd bet money on that being Howard Lyon's work. Howard has a background in religious illustration, so I'm not surprised that there's some significant influence.
