Quote from Arwen_Spence »Seriously, there are times I don't know what would happen if Magic players were given nothing to whine about. Magic is releasing ludicrous amount of products in a year. Don't like these? Wait a few months and see what the Brawl decks look like and if there's anything you want out of those. At this point, when there's a product I don't really want I'm almost grateful because it means it's one less thing I have to worry about where my Magic budget is concerned.
The level of entitlement from some folks is outrageous.
Quote from Mergatroid_Jones »I don't think most of the expensive cards that were reprinted in older Commander sets were very expensive when the sets came out. Correct me if I'm wrong, but generally I don't think it's been common for anything more than $8 (at the time) to be reprinted in these sets. 'Cause then they have to take that out of the rest of the deck. Am I wrong?
Obviously certain cards have shot up, but you can't account for the future.

In which Gavin Verhey claims to have heard players dissatisfaction with the reprints of Commander 2018, and then proceeds to show that (at least after the first deck) no, no he didn’t.
“Hey kids, you want better reprints? Enjoy your $7 Seedborn and don’t say I never did anything for ya!”
Quote from JuiceBOX »For anyone absolutely entrenched in the format, these products will always be disappointing... that is just how it is. These decks have never been what I hoped they would be for a $40 price tag, but they are nice to see anyways. Players deep into the format are likely just going to pick up singles anyways, this product isn't geared towards them - it is geared towards people who likely don't have a commander deck or who don't spend a whole lot of money on a secondary market.

Calling precons a bust base on the price of reprints is rather skewed, don't you think?
The primary function of commander precons are there to be a gateway for players new to this format, $40 for a cohesive deck with potential for expansion isn't that high. If they include more pricy reprints then individual LGS might also sell them for higher cost, make it truly unapprochable by new players. As it is, I think the deck is fine for amateurs, it has a theme, good mana base and removal, versatile legends, and easy to learn.
Precons are tasked for supporting older deck ideas and/or inventing new one, to stimulate deckbuilding. Morph is an old concept requiring new blood, which this deck provided quite a few. It's a good deck and looks fun to play, I will definitely pick it up and playtest it.

What badly needed reprint would a morph deck have?
