    Not a big fan of the Professor, but he has some decent takes on accessories. That said, he can't expect a preview when his whole shtick is "Do not buy booster boxes, buy singles" and "The Rerserved List is a lie!" and all sorts of tomfoolery like that. Wizards will always prefer obsequious people like Shivam or the odd name celeb to add more noise.

    In the end, these content-provider previews aren't that enticing; I would rather have the full spoiler up asap so I can get to brewing and altering decks, but I suppose it's always been staggered.

    Haha just ordered an OG Planar Chaos foil of Urborg and OG Coffers foil too, hopefully that one isn't reprinted!
    Good job here, these are staples in EDH!

    Meh on Ith, would have preferred...Supreme Verdict or anything, really?
    Dovin's Veto is hella sweet, though.

    I am guessing this is for a limited AT, so fine.
    Jeskai would have been preferable for shenanigans though.

    Oh man I just ordered a foil OG Mirrodin Sad Robot.
    Guess I will need multiples of this version as well. Nice reprint! Grin

    These are nice. Would have preferred Cabal Coffers over Cultivate since it's a black staple. But nice art direction anyways.

    Guessing these are like Cattouche, giving a permanent buff and an etb trigger with the vulnerability of having the critter zoinked in response.

    Haha, will be so amazing in my Scarab God deck. Exile a dude, make a 4/4 copy that's a Zombie, make a second Zombie, drain for 2+ on next upkeep!
    Great card! Grin

  • posted a message on Fatal Push and it's a Box Topper
    Being critical is fine, we should be critical.
    A few people I know are being petty, complaining about good rares being re-printed. This set is chock full of value at all rarities. Just good staple cards and some good chase rares and EDH cards too. Sure, there is a little bulk, but that's fine.
    I'd love to get a playset of these alt art Fatal Push, they are just gorgeous!

  • posted a message on Set boosters (yet another new type of booster)
    Yeah this is kinda cool but Imma just buy more 2XM or singles.
    Nothing here really appeals to me? I want X commons, Y Uncommons, Z Rares/Mythics.
    I don't care about the art stuff a ton, and you seem to get more commons and less uncommons so...if there's a chase uncommon I guess you're out of luck?
    Meh. Just draft boosters for me.

    , as I won't be purchasing Commander Legends because Gavin Verhey geeked out about Baron Sengir. Only Zendikar fetches or Three Visits or Riding the Dilu Horse or Cruel Tutor will save that set now. BIG reprints, ,like Top, etc.


    That's somewhat get your head out of the clouds wishing of reprints

    Were almost certain it's focused more on new cards rather than reprints in commander legends plus almost everytime everyone anticipates reprints like this you guys end up with disappointment
    (but more hope with double masters based on henrumornthat has quite a few correct)

    But we will get reprints

    By the way cruel tutor that's not the right reprint everyone want it's imperial seal more expensive strictly worse vampric tutor


    Thank you for everyone's clarity on this topic, and for redirecting me with proper roadmaps.
    I do think there will be some reprints among the oodles of new Commmander content, however.

  • posted a message on Double masters preview schedule
    It does seem late but Seth (oioooooooootherwise known as Saffron Olive) made a great point that this was likely designed after Ultimate Masters was a hit. When IMA was a disaster they took a pause but here we are a few years after UMA, ,2XM is coming. I got my box at $400 CDN and I feel that will likely be a steal. People are just killing themselves in my feed to get the double box toppers and the box probably has a lot of other goodies too...going to be a nice treat to myself, as I won't be purchasing Commander Legends because Gavin Verhey geeked out about Baron Sengir. Only Zendikar fetches or Three Visits or Riding the Dilu Horse or Cruel Tutor will save that set now. BIG reprints, ,like Top, etc.

    But I digress..looking forward to 2XM, the new sweetness.

    Dogs having a lord doesn't make them competitive. I mean, Wild Mongrel was last good...dozens of years ago?
    It will likely be an ok draft theme and might be tier 2 Standard, maybe 1.5 if they really push some of the dogs and cats.

    So Magic Xmas land in Jor Kaddeen commander:
    Great Furnace, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Lightning Greaves, this bad boy, swing for 5...and don't do a hell of a lot more, but I _also drop a Sword of Fire and Ice..
    In reality though, it's going to be another way to add a little mid-game pressure, especially with all the equips I run.
    In SAtandard, with WItch's Oven and Gingerbrute and so on, should be sweet too.

    lol
    Domri...is the only one I'd want out of these, huge Village People vibes coming off him.
    Not buying this, maybe singles on the cheap.
