Quote from GFireflyEI figure there is $400 'value' if you buy all 5 decks.
well worth any target/warmart price...
Has anyone attempted to calaculate the value of each deck to place them in an order?
Quote from GalspanicDon't put too much stock in that though. Diaochan was $80 before she was reprinted in a really limited release set and that super limited release card is $6. The P3K cards almost can't even be factored in here because they aren't that good but because of their rarity they are worth a **** ton.
FYI, on opening day last time the BUG deck was way more valuable than all the others. It had a bunch of known commodities and 2 playable generals in arguably the best color scheme. It is now worth the least of the 5.
Go for the decks that have good commanders and new cards, not reprints.

Quote from timelordI think I am one of the few disappointed in this card, but not in the card itself. Naya is what Naya does...Im more disappointed in how they drop the ball and even before the card comes out they are Errata this. Should of noticed that before printing. you know there are going to be some players out there who will "forget" that part and abuse those who don't know about it or don't keep up in commander as they do with standard.
Quote from Tempest1986So, if you find yourself in the incredibly rare situation where your opponent has 1 self-sacrificing non-land permanent on the board, and sacrifices that permanent before O-Ring resolves (in either a terrible misplay, or in an attempt to make you o-ring one of your own permanents), you can then pay 2WU and (effectively) discard a card for a 2/2 flying creature with flash?
That sounds horrendous.
In a vast majority of eternal applications, Spell Pierce will do the same things as this card without giving your opponent a clock (and still be more versatile, hitting planeswalkers and artifacts). Flusterstorm will be better in the applications Spell Pierce is not.
Esperblade won't play it.
RUG delver won't play it.
BUG doesn't need it.
Reanimator won't play it.
TES isn't touching it.
Show & Tell could possibly play it (mostly for the mirror & humility.dec)
Omni-Show won't play, pact is better
In modern you want to hit cranial plating, birthing pod, Karn, blood moon, thoughtseize, scapeshift and splinter twin. Pierce hits all of these, Swansong hits half. Of the half swansong even hits, pierce is usually just as good. I could see it possibly being better than pierce against Scapeshift. That's too narrow a choice for too little a percentage of the field.
Vintage Oath is about the only place I'd agree this card is solid.
Even in standard, there are better options.
