Quote from Palodios
Wizards knows all this. They're looking at the money they made, and planning for the next time to release an expensive land set. It isn't this year, and probably not the year after, but they will. And it will be in a standard legal set.
Quote from limovrakI disagree that this is good news when it comes to the fetches. We knew that they'd be reprinted soon one way or the other, the only question was whether they'd be in a MM set or a Standard set, and pretty certainly not both. They would be more widely available if they were printed in a Standard set
Quote from limovrakWouldn't drafters value-pick them on sight? And would that degrade the draft environment, or is that the norm?
Quote from Bolas, the MindsculptorIt's not entirely out of the question to have another print run of Goyf? I think it needs another.
Quote from Victor SantWizard will not be stupid to release a standard-safe money card on a supplemental product. Fetchlands are totally safe for a non-shockland standard.
Why would wizards throw away the chance of making the highest selling set ever by adding fetches to a supplemental product?
Specially if they reprint the ONS fetches (wich will happen if fetches ever come back to standard, because wizards already stated that they will not make incomplete dual land cycles anymore)
Quote from limovrakThis is exactly where I'm at. They're safe in Standard as soon as the shocks rotate, and it's such a firesure way to sell a set (the shocks made RTR/GTC sell like oh my god), so I'd expect to see them as soon as Huey... if they decide that the Onslaught fetches are safe for Modern (and I honestly don't know enough about the Modern format to say anything about that), or they somehow decide to make some kind of exception from the "all 10 or nothing" rule. And then there's the "shuffling = loading screen" thing, but that can't possibly be a deciding factor... can it?
As with any format, there are some cards whose conspicuous absence will be felt. In particular, the Onslaught fetch lands feel like a strange omission, when the Zendikar fetch lands combined with the Ravnica dual lands will likely be important to the format's mana bases. I admit that it is strange. However, right before Zendikar released, the format contained only Onslaught fetch lands. I played many Extended tournaments with a green-blue deck that would have loved the option to find a Forest with Misty Rainforest, but I made do with Polluted Deltas, Flooded Strands, and a few Breeding Pools. For now, the lack of allied-color fetch lands would be one of the format's idiosyncrasies. There would be others that we would discover over time, and that's okay too.
Quote from JaceTheWalletShredder
Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from kobo1dSo I wonder if they will they be drafted together? MM1-2-2 or something.
If they print a future MM3 set...Modern Masters Block Constructed?
Quote from NoElbowsInThisRoundI would love to see Grove of the Burnwillows reprinted for Tron purposes. Reprinting Melira and B-Pod together will create an absolute frenzy.
Quote from ProTechMy guess that they will reprint the Zendikar fetches in Return to Zendikar which is already in their 6 year plan but still 4 years from now. Now they know that they need to reprint fetches sooner but if they put fetches into the next block it will steal the thunder of reprinting fetches in Return to Zendikar. So they decided to put it into Modern Masters 2. It will not be able to push the prices down much, but at least it will ease it a bit for another two years when Return to Zendikar will solve this problem.
Obviously the years are baseless speculation, just to demonstrate the point.
Quote from EvilDuckReturn to Zendikar block can have the allied fetches to get them into Modern and that will conveniently allow for doing the enemy manlands in the block. Reprinting the fetches at rare in MM2 would do more to the prices than you'd think. The only card that really shot up after MM1 was Tarmogoyf.
Quote from Bolas, the Mindsculptor » What the consumers want to see drop is Tarmogoyf, Vendilion Clique, and Bob. Modern Masters made those cards even more desirable.
Not sure if Wizards intend for that to happen, because I feel it's detrimental if you wanna introduce people to modern... People want to play with those cards. Ditto for fetches.
Quote from jturphyIts not surprising that Vial didn't see much (if any) of a decrease as it was bumped up a rarity.
On the other hand Cryptic went from a ~$30 to ~$20. Blood Moon saw a drop from ~$8.50 to ~$6. So yes, there are two example of cards falling roughly 30% as opposed to many of the other rares that fell upwards of 75%. Obviously Fetches will be closer to the 30%, but a 30% drop means a drop of aroud $20 for some of them. Even if its a little less than that, paying that much for the most important cards in the format isn't unreasonable.
Point is, they will drop, it won't be an insignificant drop, and if you want to introduce the plague of fetch land games on Standard just for a significany drop that's just greedy and/or stupid.

Quote from jeremylinyeah whatever dude thoughtseize wasn't a hard call you could call X modern staples and crapshoot it doesn't mean anything. mod plz move to BS
Quote from wrduardoI have to be honest...I think putting cards like goyf and Bob on the reserve list wouldn't be a bad idea...
I know they won't ever add to it again, but I think it would help the game...
Quote from EvilDuckWell, clearly you just know everything, don't you? Did your inside source tell you something different?
