    If the packs are more than $15/pack I don't see this set selling too many boxes or packs any time soon. We are in a global recession but Wizards are ramping up the products this year instead of scaling down, between Core 21, Secret Lair drops, Double Masters and we just had Ikoria come out that's about 4 new sets of cards in just 3 months, let's not forget Jumpstart, whenever that will come out.


    Funny enough with box’s at 300 that actually makes packs about 12.5 when a single one is 16 so it's better to get a box as crazy as it sounds


    Crazy??? Its always been that way. Individual booster price is always better when you buy a box over individual packs. Now I can understand if someone doesn't have 300 bucks to pop down on a BB. The problem is a BB shouldn't be 300 bucks for just 24 packs. Catering to whales is going to catch up to WotC and Hasbro faster than they think.


    I'm a math master dude I know it's overpriced regardless box or individual (and I'm aware you could just be messing with me as well by the way)

    I'm just saying you would have paid 12.5 per pack vs the 16 both prices are still obnoxious per pack since you can see
    (of coarse we still don’t know what's in this yet)

    Whenever we get a return to New Phyrexia, I can see it being as hyped as War of the Spark, I think Karn will "save" Mirrodin, however the Praetors will find their way into another plane, except Urabrask I think he'll die aiding Karn and company
    Maybe a 2.0 invasion on Dominaria or we'll end up going to Elspeth's home plane as a follow up to NP


    I was gonna question why urabrask would help but then I remembered he's the only phyrexian Who actually cares for the mirrans as crazy as that sounds (even though he still has bad In him) also part of the reason he refused to give atraxa the 5th color

    So he could aid them if he's even alive remember elesh born conquered his realm and sheoldreds

    Teferi and agent will be out of standard in September so no point in banning them.
    But ikoria cards can get the ban such as lurrus or yorion, they probably won't ban fires of invention or lukka though.



    If your talking war of the spark teferi it's rotating when core 2021 hits not September

    There you go

    But this is probably still a teaser for the phyrexians return though just not ixalan

    Also core 2021 will probably have lore on the old phyrexians
    (it's teferi focused and all the lore before the return to dominaria set pretty much him fighting the phyrexians)


    Oh by the way marks if/when day from. Few weeks ago

    2.0 of the praetors and poison counters in standard we're both big whens

    And probably like last time you get benefit and they get the reverse (stax) but probably give them protection like the eternalized gods got

    They just need to fess up and admit the mechanic is broken and wrong.
    They didn't help the fact by printing the first ten companions with Hybrid mana either and most having great abilities.
    Hopefully on Monday:
    Teferi or Fires or Yorion or Agent (or some combination)are banned from standard (Teferi will rotate soon but no need to keep him around till then)
    Winota is banned in Historic because if your not playing it you mostly lose

    Companion: No easy fix unfortunately because the "restrictions" they put on the first 10 really don't restrict when they slot in perfectly to already established decks or easy to build decks.
    I like the mechanic itself even with the uninteraction with the free card, its just they are almost all too powerful. So even if they ban 3-4 of the good ones, everyone will shift to finding a way to break the 4-10 ones until they eat up the entire meta.
    A free card is just too much to pass up most of the time.
    Should have came out really weak and seen if people could make them fringe work, not come out with the first batch that kinda makes you feel like a fool for not playing a free card.

    Maybe: Companion the mechanic is banned in eternal formats and Yorion and Lurrus are banned in standard.


    Uh I need to remind the teferi train may not end yet because core 2021 is focused on him.

    Quote from m_pathogen »
    Sounds like it might be more comparable to Conspiracy, then?
    There’ll definitely be a few juicy reprints to give them a known quantity of value to sell the set,
    but we may get some really powerful new cards, too!

    I’m curious how many of the Mythics will be new commanders vs desirable reprints.
    I would guess maybe 10 Mythic commanders and the other 5 are high level reprints like Mana Drain, Imperial Seal, etc.
    They’re already getting several of these out of the way with Ultimate Masters,
    possibly to make more room for new Mythics in CL?


    I'm will say this

    Josh from command zone/game knight's actually knows some of the cards since they actually let him draft a prototype of the set

    He said His favorite draft sets was conspiracy and battlebond this is that but even better is what he said

    Darksteel Colossus just ain't it anymore, but the other two are real cards at least.


    That's only because blightsteel colossus exist since it basically adds infect (which should have been the one on this card by the way)

    In the right edh deck, it would be great

    Heck just attach a phyresis or tainted strike it then you turn it to a budget blightsteel colossus

    30 dollars for 4 bolts? No, thanks.


    Especially since you can get the cheapest bolts for 1.52 (mystery booster)

    And people already have alpha era bolts

    The monocoulored or the multicoloured cycle? K'rrik would be a solid mono-black legendary


    Yea that's problem B for horror the oldie phyrexians vast major are black there's the occasion blue or red in the older phyrexians


    Yeah that is the problem, also I bet most of the OG phyrexians are getting cards in commander legendes, but if M21 is anything like M19 I do expect to see some OG phyrexians, also Jumpstart, Phyrexians are a mythic theme and there are 37 new cards comming with that product so the stars are kind alligning, Jumpstarts also shares over 100 cards with Core 2021
    But they could potentially do a double coloured phyrexian cycle if they really wanted too


    Yea that's true

    By the way K'rrick has a card your right he’s mono black printed last year's commander product in the rakdos deck


    Tsabo Tavoc is already black and red
    Gix black and blue
    We could arguably say Belbe could be black green

    But it's kinda hard to do a cycle of OG phyrexians even multi coloured, at least without introducing some "new" old phyrexians in the set, or minor characters


    Indeed

    We see of old phyrexians get involved of core 2021 or not (not as a cycle) lorewise

    Maybe the legend cycle are phyexians

    As for the tribe I would say horror due to the phyrexians but there's lots of types the phyrexians are
