    Probably

    I feel like they could have reduced MSRP by like 1/3 and sell for like $170.00 (Or heck, $150, why not?!)and they would have sold way more and made even more money.

    Just speculation of course, but I feel like they wouldn't just be sitting there.

    They sold 11k of these, that is 2.73 million before fees and shipping.

    Sad thing is they could sell whatever they still have left at 25% of MSRP and still make a killing.

    Flippers are starting to list under MSRP. People realized too late that this isn't like the first one. If you want one, keep your eyes out for deals.

    If they plan to keep doing these they need way bigger hitters.


    Yea, the product already lost all its steam right from the get go.

    It will sell even worse the next time, as all the people that got burned wont buy it again.

    They can never ever sell the numbers they did with the 1st and this product is doomed to fail hard unless they put in some serious bombs that justify the incredible high price tag.

    Don't think they'll have Ultimate Mythic Edition for $1000 with JTMS, LotV, and OG Karn? lol

    Never say never.

    I've always run Kozilek, if you hard cast him you get cards, if you tooth and nail him you crush someone's board.

    Ditch Crypt Sliver. Crystalline stops it from working. Use Sedge Sliver instead.

    Flying slivers are a must.

    Changeling isn't good. Once again, stopped from working by Crystalline. If you have Crystalline and Hivelord in play it's tough for them to deal with you.

    I feel you have WAY too few lands. At least throw in the Battlebond duals until you can replace them.

    Always have the Queen in your deck. The combo is pretty easy to set up and wins games. Plus she's a 7/7 that has a boatload of abilities with other slivers. Nothing to sneeze at.

    Hello! This primer has been a huge help to me, so thank you to the responsible parties for creating it!

    I used the "Great Devourer" list but modified it a bit and would love to talk about my choices, and moreso, hear your thoughts on my choices. I will post the list later, i dont have acces to it right now as i am trapped in a boring class in school.

    What really brought me to create a profile here is the following question:

    Any thoughts on Biomancer's Familiar from the new set? Worth an include? Should it replace Training Grounds or compliment it? What slot should it replace if we include it?

    Probably a decent include, but I'd probably run it in addition to Training Grounds. Training Grounds is so good that a second copy at 1 green mana more would be welcome.

    Quote from user-11159087 »
    I am also disappointed that there is no discussion anymore in all price threads. There is definitely a lot to talk about, but the interest is pretty low in this community. Another problem is that there are also price discussion threads in the modern and legacy subforum. But I also have the feeling that since curse took over there is not much going on here anymore.

    I haven't quite figured out why the Curse switch would have much effect on anything. Seems to work about like before.

    I think the issue is threefold.

    1. Magic Popularity is waning. I hate to say it, but since RTR it's been what seems like a steady decline.

    2. Facebook is killing web forums. I see it all over. Once thriving forums are dying off as the older guard gets busy with families and such, the younger fans are simply not using forums.

    3. Even on Facebook things are slow. Nobody seems to be talking about much. Reddit is better, but it's just not the same.

    Surprised I didn't see anything on this.

    Walkers just don't stand up to the first Mythic Edition IMO.

    Art on Study is at least nice to look at. I think it misses the target. The original shows an attitude that fits the card. Sit back and let the others do the work. This guy is trying too hard.

    The Food Chair art is just boring boring boring.

    A 2/2 for 3 split over 2 turns that loots once unless you build around it. Doesn't seem rare to me.

    Of course, if you're talking about RL price spikes, that's a different story, and for me the story goes "Ugh, another card jumping for no reason except speculation." I got sick of saying it, so I stopped. I imagine that many others have a similar feeling.

    Yup... I know it's economics, but it's squeezing me out of playing Legacy. Frown

    I never found much use out of the Changeling strategy. It's cute, but usually I'd rather Slivers have shroud so it doesn't really do much good.

    I also play far less slivers. My only non-sliver creature is Kozilek because he stops mill strategies and is a nasty thing to drop in a game. OG Ulamog can work as well.

    I also run Day of Judgment over Wrath since I have regeneration. I also like Tooth and Nail better than Chord, but both are solid cards.

  • posted a message on What is the actual Mythic ratio of UMA?
    Quote from OKandrew »
    I am actually a little worried now, because I have been doing a few tests, and have opened a couple cases already. And I am starting to see a very similar pattern of the Mythic Rare slow positioning. They seem to have it calculated to have exactly 8 packs in between Mythics. So, a lot of boxes I am seeing something like the first one in the 1st far left row will be 3 packs down. Then, if you count the remaining 5 packs in the row down, then jump to the middle row, the new mythic was 4 packs down, and 5 packs down in the furthest right row...So, it seems to be the 9th pack, or always having 8 packs in between them. I really don't like this, because it always guarantees you are only getting 3 mythics per box, and never seem to have the variation for 4 or 5, unless they are a foil. I would LOVE to get proof of someone ever opening a 5 Mythic box, all 5 non-foils, not including the topper obviously. This has me worried for box mapping. Fortunately, the rares and other random foils can be worth the venture to just open the rest of the box anyways, just sharing my experiences and thoughts...

    If true this will be very easy to map. Basically making buying loose packs the worst gamble since the see through wrappers.
