    I voted for Vampires and that potential ending was so lame.

    This honestly does feel like a low-blow Yugioh move. I left that trash game because of this BS.

    I was really counting on Jace being affordable enough for me to get my last copy for Commander. Now as usual, Commander players are screwed out of this iconic card because of Modern, and they think a product at $10 a pack, with a horrible gamble ratio of majority garbage bulk rares is going to offset this insane demand they've created?

    It makes me so upset to have my Mind Sculptor stolen from me, only to have WOTC inflate its price before a reprint set they've promised would make it more accessible. Seems every way I turn, this card is going to be a nightmare. And here I thought it would finally be reasonable. But it's a mythic, and I'd have to hemorrhage out cash on bulk rares before I have any hope of seeing it anywhere.

    Honestly, I'm getting sick of being burned by card games. Making it a mythic was NEVER going to solve the demand problem when it's tripled in price from one announcement. Good luck to us Commander folks I guess, since we'll never see the light of damn day in this game with anything.


    There's some serious irony in your post man... Edh is the SOLE reason for a ton of cards spiking because edh players must have. Hilarious!
    So Jace getting unbanned in Modern wasn't the cause of Jace spiking from $55 to $140. EDH was. Where it's always been legal. Makes sense.

    Last copy for commander? LAST COPY???? you DO know Commander is a singleton format right? The price change of it just being printed wasn't going to impact stuff very much since the guy was pretty stable and a format usable in Commander/legacy anyway, at most a 10% drop. I do feel bad for you as getting cards stolen truely does suck however.
    It was the last card I needed for my deck. I was waiting to buy it when Masters 25 was released thinking WOTC was going to make it more reasonable to obtain. Literally it's been reprinted so many times and never falls below $45 at its worst. The card is desired, and this is hardly going to help alleviate the disproportionate demand and supply.

    Tezzeret is my favourite walker mostly from a gameplay point of view (artifacts).

    I do like the character, but I feel that a lot of his current problems were the result of his (IMO) excessive ambition.
    But Tezzret and Silas Renn are enemies.


    Doesn't stop me from liking how Tezzeret's character is written. Also Silas Renn, unlike Tezzeret, has no cards that are Modern-legal. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is probably my favourite planeswalker card overall.
    You are unworthy of such a beautiful avatar.

    UNWORTHY

    cast this foo'out of the Hekma tbh


    Because of how questionable the canon for Test of Metal is, we don't know what Silas is up to now or if he's even still alive.

    That could leave the door open for Tezzeret to have a character-changing plot on his home-plane like Sarkhan did. Of course, in Tezzeret's case, Bolas has him on a tighter leash.
    Test of Metal was really horribly written. I'm happy it's not canon. The comics did demonstrate that Silas defeats Tezzeret often and was awarded an Etherium heart, which his official blurb confirms. So there's at least that. I did like Silas as a clockworking adept as well, navigating horizontally through time. His card doesn't reflect that enough, although I do love its synergy with Time Sieve, which I use in my Silas deck to illustrate that ability.

    Man, it's not often that someone's life gets worse after growing up in an underground junkyard, while having no name. Tezzeret is my favorite because his impossibly *****ty life has completely robbed him of the ability to give a damn.

    Honestly, that story was the worst. No respect for Ixalan, Orazca, its cultures or legends. I really thought Zacama would be involved in overturning the emperor and allowing Huatli to take command and work on peace treaties. Instead, it was just transport. Next to nothing about the fate of Orazca, this long journey to it, its relevance to Ixalan as a plane, the tribes... instead, the whole Ixalan story ended up being a plot line for Bolas a a villain, and Orazca, Huatli, the journey, all of it - no relevance to Ixalan, but came down to celebrating just how great being a planeswalker is, how much better it is than being anything else. And rather than focusing on the wonders of Ixalan and its city of Orazca, the story we've been following all this time, the focus in this story was on how great it is to leave it all behind and go elsewhere. Literally as soon as it was discovered? Planeswalkers.

    I miss when these worlds actually mattered more than leaving them. When being on the one we're on actually meant something. And not just Planeswalker marketing.

    Azor no longer a Planeswalker, so they literally disposed of him like trash.

    Imperial Recruiter, Capture of Jingzhou, Ravages of War, and Three Visits could all use a reprint. Here's to hoping this is the set they've saved portal reprints for.
    Capture of Jingzhou was literally just a judge promo.

    Honestly, not to belittle anyone's opinions here, which are quite valid...

    But after 12 miserable and lost years in Yu-Gi-Oh, I will gladly accept a Reserve List and Masters sets/secondary market as MTG's worst. As much as I'd love them to change. Trust me, you guys have seen nothing.

    I think it's to preserve the secondary market value on cards, to an extent. WOTC just happens to capitalize on the secondary market being what it is, in the process.

    YES! I was waiting for this set to spoil before buying the last Jace I needed for my Jace deck. So happy I waited and thrilled to see him in Masters 25!

    They're reprinting the Judge Azusa art. It's surprising. Man I love this game.

    I also hope we see Rhystic Study with new art. Also, please, Tragic Poet!
