    Didn't they do something like this for Alara? I remember seeing those "premium" packs collecting dust for months at my LGS as well as Wally World. Seems like every time they come out with some kind of "premium" product for the enfranchised players the price goes up a bit and the quality goes down a bit. That or it's an incredibly limited release that is almost impossible to get. This game has slowly been getting worse every year since Hasbro started pulling the strings.

    Sad that Rancor hasn't seen more love. Off the top of my head I can't think of a better Aura ever printed.

  • posted a message on What hurts the format more? Fast Mana vs. Tutors
    Sorry, I just don't see the problem with fast mana. Fast mana = Fast start = Massive target on your back.

    As a spikey Spike, I had to learn the hard way that multiplayer games don't play out the same way as 1v1. It feels great dumping your hand out by turn 3 and steamrolling over one of your opponents... until you realize you've run out of gas and there's 3 other people who now want nothing more than to see you lose. That's about the same time you're wishing your next draw is a Demonic Tutor.

    This will be a fun set...if you're drafting Dimir or Selesnya.
    What am I missing about Selesnya? I was just lamenting to myself that there is very few convoke enablers. There's only so many Sworn Companions to go around and If I'm paying 3+ for a creature, I don't want to use it as a mana dork.

    If I open this pack 1 I'll definitely try to draft the Guildgate deck. Not great but a fun build around in limited.

    this does go in stompy although it would be not as good to take out elves for the quick ramp into Steelleaf.
    Mana elves don't go into stompy. They go into rampy. Turn 2 should be spent playing Kalonian Tusker or Avatar of the Resolute... or Rancor. Rancor is always a good decision.

    It's going to sting when the top two cards are lands. Red doesn't play the Draw Go game very well.

    Great art, interesting design. That said, there's a LOT of hoops to jump through to make this work. Have fun with this one Johnny.

  • posted a message on Who are the Guild Leaders for Ravnica Allegiances???
    Color balance tells me it will most certainly be Gruul, Orzhov, and Azorius. Dovin seems like the logical choice for WU since he's already worked for Tezz. I'd guess Domri for RG since Sarkhan isn't about to volunteer. Also, we haven't really been given much of his story. My upset pick for WB is Liliana instead of Kaya. It would make for some good television having Jace see his ex walk into a Guildpact meeting as the leader of the organized crime guild.

    Love this card. I wish they'd do a whole cycle of them for each guild.

    That name is fantastic. I just wished they hadn't wasted it on a card that will be forgotten after rotation. The card itself is fine for limited but had they shed one mana off the cost it would definitely see play in Pauper and the kitchen table for years to come.

    You have to be pretty mana screwed to want to use the elf's ability. And if you are in that position, you're not going to be happy about waiting a turn and sacrificing your next draw step considering you're probably playing from behind at that point.

    I expected that RW would get a reasonably powerful mythic creature that probably has no Modern applications at all and I wasn't disappointed.

    Hope is fading for something that I can use. She's a good card. Just not what I need.


    Did you want her to have haste too? She buffs a creature the turn she comes out then starts the beating the following turn.
    Haste would be nice, along with Double Strike, Menace and possibly Indestructible to push her over the top.

    To think there was once a time Dimir players considered their color combo to get shafted every set…
    Very true, I've been one of those people. However, I'm excited by what I've seen so far and I think Surveil is a great mechanic.

    These cards are all just the bees knees. Doom Whisperer will even compete for the 5-drop creature slot in Cube.
