    This is a card game, not a stock market. Go buy stocks! Way better roi. Or at least go do some real gambling instead.

    Many would argue that a creator can set any price they want and it's fair.


    I don't think i will waste any time and brain energy with something logical after this. I guess i'll just throw some american nonsense. FIRST AMENDMENT! RIGHT OF SPEECH! you can't censor my opinion! paying more for a 12 cards booster is theft!

    maybe it's something partner-related? maybe not?

    i'm really curios for this product. If done right, it can probably be the best one of the year

    Hey look

    It wasn’t just the boosters that they took photos off

    Sadly there were smart enough to flip the big card the wrong way and censor the color combo so we still have to wait

    But isn’t funny it’s he same box color as Yidris deck and that’s a 4 color deck


    .... 4 foils?

    Yeah, i also dislike Theros because it's essentialy a plane of Boros soldiers

    And they've been doing four decks for years. Suddenly they're doing five again, and replacing an entry-level product with them? Yeah, I'm sticking with the mono-color idea. Could be wrong, we'll see.


    They have done 4 deck for 3 years and 5 decks for 5 years. They made monocolor decks only one time and used planeswalker commanders the help them feel new and exciting.

    Keep in mind they only stopped doing color cycles when they switched to 4 decks. Now that they're back to 5 decks, it's pretty likely that they'll resume doing cycles, making a mix of 2-3 color decks much less likely.


    Well since 2017, they have done:
    1 bant (2018), 1 esper (2018),1 grixis (2017), 1 naya (2019), 1 jund (2018)
    1 mardu (2017), 1 jeskai (2019), 1 sultai (2019)

    We "need" a temur and abzan to complete the cycle

    I just knew I was going to hate this entire plane

    I love that Wizards is trying to make products to cater to a wider audience, my friends and I are going to have a blast with these.


    The wider audience is casual players who can't grok commander and don't about price/quality?
    Wow, i wonder why they don't make these kind of products more offer.

    One of the main selling points of this will be commander cards. They will put inside things like a unicorn tribal legeds, a lord for dogs (hounds) and a dragon who says "dragons you control get +2/+0 and haste" and commander players will buy that.

    So...

    wizard: we have printed this 3 cards. They are 50$ on the secondary market, so pay us 40$
    also wizard: yeah these booster have only 12 nonland cards and the other 8 cards are basic lands. You should still be paying us more than a normal booster because printing more cards is still expensive
    people with a brain: complain
    fanboys: REEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    [quote from="Spaz350 »" url="/forums/magic-fundamentals/the-rumor-mill/816309-c20-commander-deck-names?comment=10"]Maybe it's just me, but "Symbiotic Swarm" gives me distinctly Sliver vibes, regardless of colors.


    But the slivers aren't symbiotic at all


    Quote from Mishotem »
    I still think they're monocolor. They're meant to replace Planeswalker decks for the set, and they're mechanically tied to Ikoria. I don't think they're going to make these too complex.


    Monocolor commander decks. Way to deliver a disappointing product

    hm so Symbiotic Swarm or Enhanced Evolution will feature the new Ikora mechanic?


    Using Eldraine as a thought exercise:
    1 deck has adventure
    1 deck has adamant
    1 deck has food
    the 2 other decks can have enchantment/artifact matter, nonhuman tribal or knight tribal as a theme. Maybe even "whenever you draw your second card each turn" theme.

    So... i guess that 2/3 decks will be keyword based, at least 1 will be tribal and 1 will be theme-based.

    Those new 37 cards are just a way to grab some money from the commander players right?
