Quote from WarMachinePrime »Stunning Growth into Splendid Reclamation has me wondering again if the translations here are truly correct. I thank all of you for the translations but you can see why I keep having doubt. Those two card names aren't even close.
Quote from Frogczar »Great points! Thanks for your articulated responses.
Let me emphasize something again: I was previously buying standard cards and playing in standard events while I found the card design appealing. That hasn't been the case and has increasingly been the case since Time Spiral. These are all post-reserved list sets. I find that the WotC philosophy on set design that says Magic has to be different from sets from that era to be dissappointing and the reason I'm not buying sealed product anymore.
I think everything you've said as your reasons why are likely true, but I think WotC is making a mistake. They COULD be earning my long-time customer dollars but they've decided it's not in their best interest.
