    I got my order in for a Kaleidoscope Killers box. I’m pumped and can’t wait to get it.

    I was already content with my decision to buy a Kaleidoscope Killers box, this just sweetens the deal and increases my buying confidence.

    WotC is lately trying to introduce products which only aim to syphon as much money from the playerbase as possible. Mythic editions, lairs, mystery boosters, those use the same "suprise mechanic" to do this. I'm disgusted by that blatant cash grab and my hopes that supplemental products from next year will be good for players (reprints of chase cards to increase staples availability due to lowering prices) are more or less dead.

    If you don’t like this product, it’s perfectly understandable. I didn’t think it would be for me either until they revealed what Kaleidoscope Killers was. But on the other hand it’s extremely easy to ignore these box releases. It will never affect your mtg playing years if you do choose to ignore this.

    They’re not going to sell out of any of these boxes in the 24 hour period they’re on sale. They will honor every order that’s registered in that 24 hr period.

    I hope they “reserve list” the artworks for each card in the 7 boxes. I’m no where near a prospecting collector that’s just going to sit on the Kaleidoscope Killers box and flip it later, but it would be a *****ty deal that they would charge $30 or $40 for a limited special edition box of 3-5 cards and then turn around and make those artworks available somewhere else down the line. I’m going to make use of one of those cards in a blinged out kitchen top deck.

    I just wanted to point out the current cheapest near-mint/mint Sliver Overlord is a nonfoil Scourge Sliver Overlord, which goes for around $35 or so, so you are getting bang for your buck with the Kaleidoscope Killers box.

    Kaleidoscope Killers will be $39.99. Damn it, was hoping it would go for $29.99. I’m still getting one.

    Ok, they managed to rope me into buying one Kaleidoscope Killers box. XD
    Didn’t think they could possibly give something I wanted, but here we are.

    What is Kaleidoscope Killers going for from Wizards, $39.99?

    My only hope is kaleidoscope killer has the 3 original eldrazi’s titans in new art or sliver legions


    I’d consider it too if that is Kaleidoscope Killer.

    The Serum Visions set were without a doubt foil. My guess is the other ones were too.

    For those that will fork over the asking price for any/all of these, I’m happy they’re getting some level of satiation from these. I’m not one of those people and that’s fine too. I have enough casual for-the-family kitchen top decks I’m busy foiling out/filling out that’s taking up most of my attention to build. For myself, it’s simply carry-on.

    Curled right out of the box? Yeah, that should give buying confidence to anyone who wants these. WoTC should put together a team to figure out how to do foils that resist curling. Make it an important priority. There’s no excuses not to do that.

    Passing on these, waiting for a Pioneer Masters or something of the sort, hoping that we get Thoughtseize in the new Theros.


    So far I’m saving my money for either a Pioneer Masters set or a Pioneer Horizons set. Smile

    Are you fri... Mad

    The second one is nothing more than one of each basic land (snow lands ofcoarse)

    So guru lands all over again potentially


    Seriously? I’m feeling more and more relaxed with each reveal of these to eventually keeping my credit card in my wallet.
