Quote from ElvanosI would suggest getting T1,5 - T2 decks, preferably in mono color, that arent so expensive atm, you will still be able to win with them if you build them properly to counter your meta and you will save a crapload of money on top of that.
Quote from BaconCatThe current prices are just a Bubble. Once the format cements itself, the prices will go down, as well as when WotC realize Chronicles 2: Electric Boogaloo (in the form of 6 Card boosters for 1$ more than normal boosters) won't be a disaster and will instead be literal money printing for them.
There is also a very simple way to lower prices... STOP BUYING THE CARDS AT THESE RIDICULOUS PRICES. If no-one buys them, they will drop the price. It's simple economics. If people are willing and able to buy Goyf for $80, they will sell it for $80!
Quote from Acardus... It's a build but not really a threat to me.
Quote from Go.decBecause that wouldn't make a lot of sense? Why not make all lands basic supertypes?
Quote from EpicBroccoliIt would be cool though if they went back and updated it via Oracle (or would that be too overpowered?)
Quote from jolenarWhat's so special about a shockland that differs it from, say, a pain land?
Both have drawbacks, but the timings are different. One has drawbacks when you play it, and another when you use it for colored mana.
But only shocklands are fetchable. Why? They should both be fetchable.
@Bacon. your post makes no sense.
Quote from -LeetGamer-I think every card should be free, so poor people can win too
Quote from aneternalskepticABU duals run from $60-120. Rav shocks run from $25-40. They are staples in just about every legacy/modern deck that runs fetches. What do you think?
The equivalent would be if a card like Terramorphic Expanse fetch untapped basics. Does that sound balanced compared to the Zendikar fetches?
Quote from BaconCatThey don't functionally change cards like that with oracle, no more than they go back and make Black Lotus cost 4.
Quote from kiljoPhyrexian Dreadnought and Time Vault have been messed with a little bit.
They quit the use of the errata after flash, at which point they went back to only banning and restricting cards. Any changes to card text will keep the same funtionality and only be used to clear up wordy/confusing text.
As for prices, Vesuva is bringing down Plateau value right now! That is crazy high, no one where I am plays modern (yet) but there is no way 12post is that good...
Best deck in the format. Just look at the MTGO daily events.
Also, Ghost Quarter got a little out of hand. $5 seems kinda pricey when it doesn't really affect to many decks (that I see) in the format. Is that just cause of 12post too?
Yes and no. It is pretty good against any deck that runs utility lands, and most do between academy ruins, cloudpost, and grove of the burnwillows.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.
Quote from BbearZaside from the prices. i really hate how people have been hating on the ban list. although it is very questionable for a few cards. i understand wizards wants to create a new format where established decks won't be in power.
Quote from BaconCatTry looking at the data. No-one plays Zoo.
Quote from HelixEven though no one plays zoo it is a looming threat. It was like jund or affinity in its time. Either prepare for it or lose to it.
Quote from BaconCat I said a bunch of irrelevant crap.
Quote from jolenarI know what basic land subtypes mean, thank you very much.
What I am asking is why can't painlands, for example, also be given basic land types. Their drawbacks aren't inherently better than shocklands or anything. Making shocklands universally better than painlands by restricting the basic land subtype to them seems stupid.
Giving painlands basic land types would increase the supply of usable dual lands without creating any balance problems.
Quote from Dromar the BanisherI wouldn't consider dailies as the best evidence of what actually is the best deck. Just cause 12-Post is tearing it up on MTGO doesn't mean a whole lot especially in a format that hasn't been fully explored. I would at least wait until the Pro Tour modern event to see what decks are the best.
