    Well that’s... weird. Treating the tentacles like independent creatures is pretty inelegant. And a giant kraken starting as 2/3 is wonky.

    What a silly thing. They just arbitrarily picked a starting point instead of applying an ounce of logic for the format.

    guys, stop complaining please.


    You know what you wrote makes me want to start complaining instead of stop

    Complain if you like, but he's right. This is all our (customer pool at large) fault.

    The entry barrier to our fun is increasing, limiting who can have fun with us. But this is just a continuation of existing trends.

    And actually, charging large dollars for functionally identical game pieces is so much better than chase-mythics and tournament-staple buy-a-boxen. So while WotC are undeniably wh0res, you can't really blame them for it. Blame the johns.


    So the business making the decision to price-gouge it’s customers bears no responsibility? It’s all on us, even though no one here has expressed any interest and even social media seems to be 100% against this product? Why shouldn’t we hold WotC’s lack of morals or respect for their customers against them?

    I already hate those Collector Booster because of their outrageous price, but this is even worse. The value just isn’t there but neither is the collector appeal. The binder is just a binder, the 3x3 sheet is a fraction of a collector’s item, the print isn’t even worth $10, the digital stuff is fluff and the Collector Boosters don’t justify the rest of the cost. Those boosters should cost $10 max, not $30. Those premium Alara boosters were like $8.99 and those were 15 foils.

    interesting that the royalty are females with feminine males, the knights are females, the nobles are females. Basically any masculine role is given to a female. What. the. ****.

    I think im going to quit playing this game. I cant stand this stupid ***** theyre doing. Its really dumb and doesnt make any sense not to mention its killing us as a society.


    Dude, shut up. Your pathetic insecurities have nothing to do with this FANTASY GAME and everything to do with your emotional problems and lack of intimacy with the opposite sex. Stop crapping up these threads with your deluded nonsense. If you’re so deadset on quitting Magic then do us all a favor and quit this forum as well.

    I love the art. An elf riding a giant fox is everything I never knew I wanted.

    If we're going back to these places I wonder if we'll see things like Heroic and devotion for Theros; I'd guess we'll see a landfall variant if not landfall itself for Zendikar, provided the storyline and setting call for it. I'd like to see more Heroic and devotion.

    'buster


    I would say Devotion is a sure thing. Heroic was pretty underwhelming last time though, so they may just drop it.

    Anyways, im gonna bow out now bc its very clear that you cant say anything at all that can perceived to be against a minority class here or its taken as if you are a hobophobe, racist, sexist etc. no matter how much reason you have.


    Ah, so you have reasons to be prejudiced. Wonderful.

    BTW, you’re not as smart as you think you are. All bigots are inherently ignorant.

    and ps. jace and gideon suck as characters, so thanks again for making my point for me Wink


    Mmmh, the whole point of the conversation was that wotc made bad characters because it pandered to gays, nonwhites and so on just for the sake of diversity.
    Apparently they made bad characters even when they try to make classic characters: the white buff male and the white "nerd" male.
    It's pretty clear that they don't make bad characters because of sjw, they made bad characters and that's it
    So i guess your arguments just crumbled.


    Woah woah woah! Who told you you could bring logic into this?

    And men are not oversexualized in media.


    You’ll have a hard time making that case. Every male superhero, presented as the pinnacle of the male ideal, is absolutely ripped and sexualized to some degree.
