Value is good. But Dredgevine isn't supposed to be about value. It's supposed to be about V-8; 2000 pounds of nitro boosted war vegetables. The more velocity, the better.
Quote from jackad7Hey what do you guys think of realmwright? This card is insane, it goes right past blood moon and nonbasic hate. This card also goes way further than modern. Why is this card only 0.20??
Quote from Capt. NickOk, I'm not sure if where exactly I should post this but it's fairly price related. So I'm just going to be safe and post it here. This totally feels like a first world problem but I have a fairly substantial Modern collection since I got into the format right once it launched and had been saving my Standard cards since I started playing in Zendikar. So I have playsets of all the rare lands from Zen to now and a ton of staple cards. So I'm free to brew and test many decks that fancy me. Granted it's usually moderately janky and out of the box stuff but the problem I keep running into is that since I have expensive cards and fringe ideas, there are very few people on the same level as me to discuss deck ideas with. Which I guess isn't the end of the world despite feeling rather lonely when it comes to brewing. However, on that same note, when I go to help people with their brews I can clearly tell that they are working within the bounds of a fairly tight budget. So my ideas and suggestions of what would be ideal for them is preemptively dismissed because of cost limitations. I'm just upset that I can't help others because of price limitations as well as upset that I can't expect feedback that hasn't been filtered through budgeted eyes. Like, I still see Mox Opal as a $20 card, Fetches as $15 cards because that's what they were when I picked them up.
I don't think there is really a solution to this or anything. I just hate having to see other people limit themselves as well as how that affects their interaction with me. I try to loan out expensive cards whenever I can to help mitigate this but there is only so much I can do. Sorry, just needed to rant a little bit.

Because it's better to run cards that are not as narrow and are more versatile (e.g. Abrupt Decay, Wear // Tear, etc.).

Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from RDSRedemptionNo. If they do it wont be more than a dollar or two. The deck would have to win a large amount of the event for anyone to care.
Quote from RDSRedemptionThe deck isn't that good. It just got some screen time against a deck that couldn't answer it. Even IF they spike, it doesn't matter. Not like people are going to start playing the deck.
Quote from RDSRedemptionthe deck has been around for a LONG time. Don't you remember seeing TWoo's article and brew on it? Ive seen brews for the deck since I started magic and its never once been a real archetype.
Quote from RDSRedemptionIts a meta deck. No one was expecting it this weekend and its doing good because of that. Its a fringe deck. It wont ever be a real archetype or win a large event like a GP.
Quote from DrewReaLeeWhat's the likelihood Fulminator Mage can be reprinted in MM2 or in a Standard environment? I was thinking of picking up a playset but $40 each is quite expensive especially since they were only $10 last year.
Quote from DrWormI thin the soonest we will see a reprint of Fulminator Mage is whenever they do MM2, and if they print it at rare I think it has a good chance of comming down quite a bit for a while. It is not really a key part of any deck, just a solid SB card and maybe a 2 of in some MDs, so the only thing really making it expenisve is scarcity and rare in MM2 should be enough to bring that down. That said, the soonest we would see that is summer 2015, so if you really want to play it then you have little choice. It is WAY over priced at $40 IMO.

Quote from Maligance
It's also possible that it could show up in Conspiracy, though I think MM2 is a bit more likely....
