    This was my point too, it would suck to open a $16 pack and get a $3 rare or mythic. It would also suck even more to buy a $300-$400 box and find out all your rares and mythic amount to about $150-$180.

    I mean if you buy a standard box for $110 and you get $60 worth of rares/mythic it already feels pretty bad, but imagine buying something 3 times as much, the feeling should be 3 times as strong. I mean if there is only one $100 card in the set and the rest are $50 or less in value then it'll be hard to justify the price of the box at $300 unless you can get 6 of those $50 cards in the box whether they may be rares/mythics/foils or whatever.

    It's like buying a Collector's pack for $20 and when you open it you get $8 worth of cards in value, or even $10, it feels bad.




    As someone who bought an Iconic Masters pack and pulled Channel, let me tell you - it sucks.


    Just want to point out that you can do so much worse. Go check out Alpha Investments opening videos. Recently there's one where someone threw money in the trash by buying a box. That product was such a joke AND a rip off at the same time.

    quite an ironic necro-thread, if you think about it.


    I get what you're trying to say, but this word does not mean what you think it means.

    ironic[ ahy-ron-ik ]SHOW IPA
    SEE SYNONYMS FOR ironic ON THESAURUS.COM
    adjective
    using words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning; containing or exemplifying irony:

    The necro-ing of this thread has more in common with dad jokes than irony.

    At 6 mana it's too expensive to see any real competitive play, but holy smokes my johnny senses are tingling. When you can get the value out of this it's awesome.


    I disagree wholeheartedly. Anytime a card offers THIS many options, it's entirely worth considering. This card is NEVER dead. I think you better prepare yourself to see this thing...A LOT. Take note that the bouncing portion of the card does not state "opponent"...

  • posted a message on Possible solution to reserve list problem: Reserve list buyback program
    I don't know if anyone has ever seen or posted this video, but this particular lawyer directly addresses the reasoning behind why WotC painted themselves in a corner with the reserved list

    http://epicstream.com/videos/JakeVyper/Lawyer-Makes-Video-About-MTG-Reserved-List-and-Whether-or-Not-It-Would-Be-Legal-For-Wizards-to-Change-It

    Basically, it just can't be done by WotC.

    However, this gave me an idea. WotC made that promise. What if...Hasbro simply dissolves WotC entirely? Hasbro was not the one that made that promise. Would they still have to uphold it?

    I've always a hard time wrapping my head around this thing.

    So if you cast this, do you draw 2? Because it counts itself no? If the spell checks the grave for copies upon resolution, wouldn't the card itself be in the grave at that time?

    Or it's really just:

    1
    2
    3
    4
    ?

    This is probably the best goblin ever printed, bar none. Bet Jim Davis is likely to put it up there.

    Sangfeuille literally translates to Blood Leaf. Would be a cooler. Cooler than Kin, even though you can use the word that way...The fact that it's an elemental makes it semi-playable.

    Cmon guys, it's a seven mana black spell. It's pure casual fun. That card is hopelessly unplayable in any competitive format. Brawl/EDH? Definitely.

    Containment priest is really sweet. Modern just got a whole lot more interesting.

    That masticore is quite powerful actually, looks like a staple to me.

    Welcome Teferi...



    If that thing is real, except to see it played across multi format. Having flash is messed up.

    Get your playset boys, you'll be seeing a lot of this for the next little while...

    I wouldn't say forever. But until a viable vaccine is made widely available, for sure. But then again, there's this whole subset of people who don't believe in vaccines so I dunno. Maybe that's an American problem only and the Magic Fests in other locations will still take place.

    It's only a matter of time before the game goes fully digital. Maybe Covid will have sped up this process. Might explain the plethora of products WotC is releasing this year. Just to get that stuff out of the way before they focus on the digital aspect.

    MTGA just got that 3rd masters set (and it's pretty good, all things considered). Having the ability to curate their own format in the way they want to is probably going to be the eventual successor of modern (pioneer might have just been a band aid to bridge the gap).

    Lurrus sucks in Modern what are you talking about. It's more than fine. Hell, it's a welcome change of pace because it encourages durdling. Which is not a thing that is often found in Modern. You wanna talk about bannings in modern? I would kill Amulet Titan already. And what are you doing with Lurrus in pioneer that is so broken anyways???

    Pretty much no surprises today. Lurrus getting nuked in older formats.

    I do wonder what that means for Commander though since this is a very special case? I would imagine that the Committee might just put a star on this one and say you can totally play this in EDH, it's fine.
