    As far as Reserve List reprints go the only one I remember that made the cut recently was Scroll Rack in Kaladesh Inventions back when Wizards of the Coast was greedy on lottery cards. In a sense they sort of are with the exclusive Heroes of the Realm cards such as the Boros Optimus Prime that got leaked including an Enchantment Saga that can be your Commander.


    What are you talking about? Scroll Rack isn't on the Reserved List.

    And that last sentence makes no sense, are you saying that Wizards is somehow greedy for printing Heroes of the Realm cards that are only being distributed (not sold) to Hasbro employees?

    As I keep saying, liliana will probably not be included due to the higher value compared to the other walkers.


    And as I told you in the other thread, the value of alt art Liliana comes from the fact that Amano's name is on it. If they put stained glass Liliana in this product at roughly the same rate as other mythic walkers, then its markup wouldn't be massively inflated.

    I'm betting liliana will not be included, since that will make her worth more than $500 for this version.
    So if you buy a bundle and get her you've almost tripled your money right there, the other walkers may only be worth $20-40 in stained glass form.


    Nah, this Liliana isn't going to be as expensive as some of the Constructed mainstays like Karn, Narset, or Teferi.
    Yoshitaka Amano is where the Japanese foil alt art Liliana gets its value. Without that art, stained glass Liliana won't cost much more than expected.

    Well, I was going to get only one box of Eldraine Wonderland, but now it looks like I might be tempted into getting more.

    I bought the $199 box deal so let's hope it's worth while. I bought the MLP cards and eBay prices are hovering right around $75 and I still haven't even gotten around to opening the mailing package it came in. Sweat


    Same, mine is still sitting in the sealed Hasbro Pulse box that it was shipped in

    I would really like a Discord card. Smile


    Hopefully this product will be successful enough to prompt them to make a couple more box sets with the rest of the Mane 6, as well as Discord, Celestia, and a few other prominent characters!

    I had that idea back in 2008.

    You can see it here:

    False Door 3BB
    Sorcery (R)
    You lose the game.


    It has been my signature for years.


    Well, I mean, it's hardly a difficult design to think of.

    Ha, Golgari Death Swarm and Unicycle are both products of Maro's Tumblr discussions. He had a lengthy debate with players about whether a unicycle would be a Vehicle or an Equipment, and he also mentioned another time that Serra Angel could technically be printed in black-green.

    Waste Land is probably also a nod to Maro's statement that land tokens wouldbe extremely unlikely, given that it's hard to tell when a token is tapped or untapped if you're using a bead, die, etc. to represent it.
    Also a cheeky reference to the discussions about attempting to keyword "mill" on Truth or Dare.

    Plane-Merge Elf and Baneslayer Aspirant are really cool, I wish they were real cards. Turn 2 Baneslayer Aspirant into turn 3 Gideon of the Trials would make for a nuts curve.

    Looking at that art for Elspeth, it's looking like the left background image depicts her killing Xenagos, while the right one shows her stabbing Heliod in a very similar fashion. I mean, it's hardly an unexpected revelation, but it's neat to have it somewhat confirmed!

    And yeah yeah, the basics look like Energy cards. I don't care, I think they're still really cool and I'm sure they'll look super amazing in foil!

    You say that as if Underworld Dreams hasn't already been around since 1994

    I've been trying to build an unpowered mono blue cube, and this list has served as a great jumping-off point. By depowering it, how would the balance between archetypes get affected? I'm trying to keep combo viable without neutering it completely.

    I'm also curious to hear about your thoughts regarding Mystical Dispute, Gadwick, the Wizened, Mystic Sanctuary, and other new ELD stuff.

    Guess they DRAMATICALLY underestimated demand for the mats, the stock was gone in seconds.


    I was about to say, I was able to get the cards hours later but the mats straight up vanished within moments

    The only solid info we know as to the card pool is that none of it is from the Reserve List.


    Inb4 it has old cards slotted into it, like the Zendikar priceless treasures

    How in the world is Beanstalk Giant a Modern playable card?
    Mystic Sanctuary has a much higher chance of seeing Modern play than an overcosted beatstick with an overcosted ramp spell attached

    AdmiralBurbia called the name perfectly, nicely done

    Seems like a pretty standard effect, I kinda wish it made a Goblin token but I appreciate the flavor of a Dwarf token.

    I can't wait for a Miracles player to fetch this land in response to a Counterbalance trigger
    Or put a Terminus back on top after their opponent has overextended into rebuilding their board

    kiron is right too, it can be reused with Daze, you can get back counterspells with it, you can draw the card immediately using cantrips... Card is sweet.
