    And watch WotC sell the individual Drops of each land for >$50.00 per box. Like everyone here said, WotC doesn’t acknowledge the secondary market. What a joke.

    I really see no point in keywording Unstoppable and Backbone. That doesn’t fix blue’s need for a combative keyword, as that would be the biggest need of something new to add to the game on a evergreen basis. I didn’t like Prowess’s flavor but I was getting used to it just as it got yanked. But whatever.

    There is a very explicit reason they haven't been printed in standard. Every time they have been in standard they have caused problems.


    You say that like the cards being absurdly expensive isn’t another type of problem.


    Also, I can’t tell where the Scalding Tarn is supposed to be- Zendikar? Shadowmoor? Grixis?



    The Scalding Tarn is Shiv in Dominaria, the Marsh Flats is Lorwyn, the Verdant Catacombs is Innistrad, the Arid Mesa is Amonkhet, and the Misty Rainforest is Ixalan.

    Have we confirmed that the “second printing” isn’t the one random fetch you get with the full summer secret lair bundle? I wouldn’t be surprised, sadly.


    Yeah, I don’t want a random Fetchland from a product I may not want, I want a copy of each Fetchland that I could have had at WotC’s MSRP had they done this Secret Lair at print for demand. If WotC does seriously listen to a place like this, I swear places like this doesn’t think things through before we run our mouth.

    God damn I wish my favorite band, who barely ever listens to us hardcores about any advice whether it’s which songs should be played per night, to which shows they should release to us, listens as much as WotC apparently watches these boards. You could tell I’m frustrated.

    At only 10 per store few if any will go for 165. It’s a joke


    I fully expect the “MSRP”, because there isn’t one, to be $200. I could maybe talk myself into getting one of these for that price if this was printed for demand. This is another cluster**** by WotC.

    Wizards: “Wizards does not recognize the secondary market”.

    Also Wizards: “here’s 5 foil snow lands for $30. Here’s 5 nonfoil fetchlands for more than $165”.

    GTFOH.

    At prices north of $165, would it REALLY have been too much to at least get 2 sweet basics paired with each fetch of the type they could search for?

    They made the effort to do each one by a different artist, and each one on a different recognizable plane, so they should have expanded upon that with each pair of basics, IE Seb does a sweet Ixilan Forest and Island.


    What snow lands?

    Super expensive cards, but at least people have a high demand for them and LGS get a cut in some way.

    So "ok" , i can get behind that.

    I already have my fetchlands and i probably never will pay money to get more of them.


    There was nothing that prohibited LGS from getting a cut with the print for demand model these were originally created for. Some members here who own stores and bought these have even come forth saying they still sold out of all their boxes.

    These gotta have some sort of labeling to tell you a foil Harmonic Sliver from these Mystery Packs are distinct from the original print of foil Harmonic Slivers, right? I mean, a part from the foiling process.....

    The Fetchlands... Well, I guess I'll have to get them, but the price OMG
    No you don’t. This kind of thought process is exactly what people need to stop doing. Constantly high-fiving WotC for terrible things has done nothing good.
    Well, I'm a collector (not a hoarder!), so I pretty much don't want to miss out, no. But I'm not high-fiving Wizards for this decision. If they'd sold it online, print to demand, like the other Secret Lairs, for $49.99, I'd be applauding.


    This really rubs me the wrong way too. I was fine, nay, exuberant that they had another way to get alternative art foil cards to us with the original sales pitch WotC gave us: they would try and utilize artists and their unique styles in creating choice cards that otherwise wouldn’t be possible within a standard set or a set like Modern Horizons; and they created this series to be a print on demand series so as to prevent scalpers from buying up these sets to sell at an exorbitant price to those that really wanted them. I’m admittedly fine that the artwork after Seeing Visions and Kaleidoscope Killers is nothing more than what you would actually see on a mtg card, but they’re back to selling directly only to LGS where LGS can only get in ten boxes!?

    Most people here who complained that LGS weren’t able to profit off of an exclusive like this is wrong, and WotC needs to go back to printing for demand.

    One of the selling points they originally gave us for The Secret Lairs boxes was they were going to showcase artists with styles that were outside the box for normal releases. Well, outside Seeing Visions and Kaleidoscope Killers, the rest are very much in line with what you’ll see in a Standard released set.

    I bought a Kaleidoscope Killers box, and I’m buying the all five Enemy Fetchlands in a box set. Given that this drops in the second half of May, it gives me plenty time to save +$200. I can’t wait, I’m pumped!

    Hey Wizards, give us Secret Lairs: Slivers, and I’ll buy 5 boxes from you.

  • posted a message on Mystery Booster complete list of foils
    Harmonic Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, and Sinew Sliver!! Whoop! Whoop!

    I’ll be interested in tracking down a copy of each, especially if they had new art! Harmonic Sliver is somewhat challenging to find nm/m foils Of.

    I’m personally of the opinion that I love seeing WotC release as much of these they see fit to release. So eventually they’ll do hit on something I’ll buy a Lair for. I’m probably not going to buy very many of the many Secret Lairs they do plan on releasing to us under the current model, and that’s perfectly fine.

    This argument that WotC tone it down so completionists can afford every single drop is rather silly.

    I’ve already bought a box of Kaleidoscope Killers and can’t wait to see what’s next in this pipeline.

    Well, I’m certainly not going to partake in this, makes me happy I can skip another Secret Lair Drop.

    Maybe it's just me, but "Symbiotic Swarm" gives me distinctly Sliver vibes, regardless of colors.


    The name has me thinking Slivers too. And we know Wizards has no problem concentrating Slivers into 2-3 colors while leaving the other colors with only one Sliver representative.
