Quote from DVDeSomewhere in one of these link it says a little bit about the contents. They say it's optimized for 54 players. Also, in a 54 player prerelease, each player gets 1 of thing A, 2 of thing B and 1 of thing C.
Quote from PolendinoRealistic expectations;
Thing A: Avacynian collar keyring/other plasticky trinket.
Thing B: Avacyn/Griselbrand promo cards.
Thing C: Tattoos.
Thing A: DIVINE VS. DEMONIC DUEL DECKS.
Thing B: DIVINE VS. DEMONIC DUEL DECKS.
Thing C: DIVINE VS. DEMONIC DUEL DECKS.
You get a Duel Deck! YOU get a Duel Deck! EVERYBODY GETS 4 DUEL DECKS!
Quote from SNUFFEDxOUTMy LGS said the Helvaults would contain "108 pieces of swag" And while I cringed at the word swag, apparently the items inside are going to be the best promotion ever. Not really sure how you can top the zendikar treasure promotion but I guess we'll see. At the very least I want them to be useable, I'd be so pissed if I opened it up and it was a damn sorin key chain, or a liliana wallet.
Quote from Ninja CaterpieI guess OP wants it to be 'keyworded' like "dies" was. What word would you replace ETB with though?
When Aegis Angel is born?
When Huntmaster of the Fells arrives?
When Kitchen Sphinx lands?
When Faerie Imposter busts in?
When Dread Cacodemon pops in?
When Malfegor shows up?
Quote from jeff3331Forget what's inside, I want the actual Helvault!
Quote from Scotty StylesSo... why is everybody assuming it's 50 pounds? It sounds like one TO had some unfounded speculation that it was 50 pounds, a player overheard the speculation, and now everybody assuming it's true.
Quote from LycianaAs far as I know, most grandmothers are also mothers. I could be wrong though...
Quote from Dire Wombat »Basically, if you want to open packs to get cards for Standard and Modern, the simpler approach is to just buy all the singles you need and then set some money on fire to make up the difference.
Quote from mr. smileySo here's a question: let's say the Pre-Release crowd fails the challenge--doesn't do what's needed to unlock the Helvault. They get nothing? It carries on to the next event/Prerelease? (FNM?) Or the TO has the authority to 'open it anyway'?

My focus is on playing, and not how much my opponents and I earn.
Quote from namelessLol man its obviously gonna be themed M&M. There is nothing that embodies good and evil more than candy coated chocolate. Also we can expect that it will contain 2 cards avacyn and griselbrand. dunno how they are gonna split those thought since people are very likely going to be willing to pay quite a lot for those two. This is bound to be the most competitive pre-release yet.
Quote from thebeardedshufflerAh yes but the helvault is going to be in addition to the promo's, so they could be sidestepping that issue by making mythic promo's special prizes in limited events.
Quote from pandafarmerThis... They are bound to be promos in this, or at the very least special tokens/emblems/something related to those characters.
I find the idea that the Helavault being 50 lbs is absolutely rediculous. Finding the amount of physical product to fill something like tha would be costly and likely make the Vault itself too large or heavy for some shops to even keep in a small shop. And each shop would potentially get two of these? No way.
Quote from RCarlysleI once farted during the final match for prizes at an FNM. It was a tense moment, everything was quiet, control vs control, I was about to mana leak, thought about it.. and farted. Then mana leaked.
