  • posted a message on Golos Lands Matter (need help completing)
    I've been playing a Golos deck for a few weeks now and have been loving it. I took a quick look at your list and there are three cards I think should be added, if you so choose:

    1. Alchemist's Refuge is the hidden commander of my deck. It allows you to use Golos's activated ability on your opponent's turn; you can't play any lands off of if when you do so, but I feel that's a small downside.
    2. Field of the Dead is extremely easy to trigger in this deck (especially if you change 1 of each basic to the snow version).
    3. Avenger of Zendikar

    A morph commander that won't be named Morophon? Missed opportunity.

    Ever spend $40 in the middle of a game AS PART OF THE GAME? My playgroup allows Un-cards as long as they don't break the game, so my buddy played a Summon the Pack. I responded by activating my Alchemist's Refuge to cast my Commander and followed it up with a Fury Storm on the StP for 4 total copies.

    I'll be there. I'll have my Sharuum Sphinx's Riddle/Sphinx Tribal deck and my Zegana, Utopian Speaker decks.

    I might have Queen Marchesa and .hack//ATRAXA, but those two are more up in the air since Im not sure how much Commander I'll be playing.

    We probably won't know until we actually get to test it. I know some people are going to be doing some hard testing of it in the mono-U version, and I am certainly excited for it in the UG version. How many is unknown though.

    Looks like they're just taking their time with sending out orders. Just got my shipping confirmation about 5 minutes ago. FedEx shipping from PA to CA.

    As for the sheets, keep in mind that those (and the $20 gift card) are free.

    You WILL get a refund for a non-received product. And if your order has not been refunded, but was canceled, you can now open a claim with eBay, who will step in and get the refund for you if the seller is not cooperating. Ebay is extremely favorable to buyers at the expense of sellers.

    I kept telling people to keep their cool. As nutso as this process is, of course it's going to take them extra time to ship.

    And to those people complaining about the uncut sheet, that's FAR more value than I expected them to give out as a concession. Heck, the $20 is more than I expected. Uncut sheets have some real value and getting the foil one is even harder. I am actually confused at how they are going to have enough of these sheets laying around to send out. Maybe they still have the presses up and ready.


    They said they were sending for more to be printed.

    My refund finally cleared yesterday evening. I am now just waiting to see it go from Paypal to the card it is linked to.

    the compensation is somewhat of a soft confirmation that it may not have been logistically feasible to create and then print something unique, or even print something that is/has been scheduled to be printed at some other time. so unlike the case with the UMA box toppers being given out, which had already been produced and packaged, wizards went to what they could get in a timely manner.

    id imagine many will probably think theyd rather just get that sheet, but cut into cards. however, it being a sheet retains the spirit of a collectors piece, while not quite being as on the nose about 'here are some cards indistinguishable from what is found in packs, and thus worth exactly as much as seen on the secondary market'. i cant say i know anything about getting the sheet cut properly after getting them (straight cuts would leave square corners, even if exact to card size - thus not tournament legal afaik). i know people do this, particularly for mis cuts, and play with them; so its not impossible.

    as for how many of these will be out there (ie the number of people being compensated with them). hard to tell exactly with it being a given that some significant portion of the 45k 'sold' shown a the end of the ME sale were just failed/erroneous transactions. my guess if i had to throw a number out would be in the 15-20k range.

    lastly, and this is assuming they are all contained on one sheet, the JPN alt-art walkers are the obvious potential alternative that meets the conditions i mentioned at the start (in production right now). im dubious that wizards didnt realize it as a consideration, which therefore means they actively decided against it. their rarity (show up half the time), and how sought after some of them are (as reflected in their market price atm); might have had an uncut sheet with the full foil set of them together being worth quite a bit down the road.


    No single uncut sheet will have all 36 alt arts (unless they do something different for alternate arts and I am unaware) since half of them are uncommons; they would be on a separate sheet than the rares and mythics.

    Anyone else still have a pending refund? It's been ~80 hours since it was issued and still hasn't cleared.

    StP is one of my favorite commander cards. If you are playing it in a Zombie deck, I would pick something with zombie synergies in the set or something that just has a bunch of creatures. The latter I've found Masters and Core sets to be really good for, but any set that was designed to be drafted would be good to. The best is when you open a set that has something like Archaeomancer, which will get your StP back for you to use again.

    The middle-ground between zombies and value though would probably be Innistrad (Liliana, Snapcaster, etc) or Amonket (Invocations)

    Misdirection effects are my favorite spells in the game, so I am all about this.

    A 5-mana overloaded Cyclonic Rift that leaves a Cyclonic Rift in your hand seems pretty good.
