    The wierd part here is that it hoses what you want the opponent doing. You want them to have cards in their yard for Crypt Incursion, Visions of Beyond, and Surgical. You want them searching for Archive Trap. This new walker is really good, but it redefines the archetype significantly if it is to be played in mill. I feel like it's almost better in a straight up control list as an alternate wincon out of the board, or maybe even mainboard with all these graveyard shenanigans going on.

    I've had an entire field of dudes die to Rakdos on Arena. I was super disappointing graphically though, it doesn't really do anything special.

    They are still available. It looks like a mix of bad PR and poor Walker choice killed this.

    This one is INFINITELY worse.

    Trusted Advisor is really really good here. Not only does he reset Minister of Inquiries, since the new guy gets around summoning sickness, you can tap, bounce, play, and tap again. That's half your deck in one turn.

    Maybe it has something to do with the number of spells cast before it? I guess that doesn't fit the Rakdos, it sounds more Izzet.

    Ive had the error listed above, plus two other errors. One about a plug system and another one I didn't understand. On three of them it said payment success though, I am hoping I haven't accidentally spent 1500 dollars. :p
    However, the fact that it has been up this long makes me wonder if the product isn't actually very limited, especially not to the SDCC card levels.

    It keeps giving me generic errors after I click order.

    Now that you mention it, at midnight I pulled double Angel of Sanctions, and Saturday I pulled double Plague Belcher, double Soul-Scar Mage, and double Mouth Feed all in one kit. My friends pulled double Rhonas as well.

    Quote from KnickM »


    Dack was also only available in a criminally underopened set, AND he's clearly the best card from the set. Chandra is good, but there are a lot of good cards in Kaladesh (it has a cycle of rare duals, which is always nice for value), plus people are going to be opening it for the lottery tickets. So I see the argument against her pulling a Dack as one of supply, not card quality.


    Conspiracy wasn't criminally under opened, it has been in easily available until earlier this year it sold so well.

  • posted a message on Dollarama MTG repacks
    I bought 45 dollar repacks from dollar tree and pulled complete garbage all around. The best thing was a Chain of Vapor.
    On the flip side, when I was a kid, and pokemon cards were all the rage, Dollar Tree had packs of base set, jungle, and fossil for a buck a pack. My dad flipped out and bought all the boxes they had. So it's not entirely impossible for legitimate packs to end up at dollar stores. I wish I knew the circumstances that lead to this though, I've never seen it since then.

    The focus isn't the background so it shouldn't be an issue? It doesn't need to be the focus, but you can't just ignore it. Look at any piece of art ever. Actually you don't even have to go that far, just look at almost any other magic card. The focus of Liliana of the Veil was the Planeswalker, but they didn't just throw her on a lame, bland, and generic background. Pretending a flaw isn't a flaw isn't helping the artwork or the artist.

    To those of you that like them, I am glad you do, but I think these are some of the worse card arts in recent history. The art has absolutely zero depth, it's just a person on a bland cloudy background.

  • posted a message on Full Set List is Up
    I will never understand why people think Wizards would ever make a set that had all playable and valuable cards. That's not what makes a good draft format, and it's not going to keep the game healthy. If you want to play a game with little to no long term value that reprints all it's money cards at low rarity so the little kids don't feel left out, go play Yugioh. Wizards has to balance playability, collectability, and their own business value and that's way more than any average player cares about. Almost all anyone wants here is money cards for nothing and it will never happen.
