  • posted a message on Amonkhet remastered
    Amonkhet Remastered has cards from three sets in it. The third set is unknown at this moment. This was "confirmed" sneakily by Blake on yesterday's WeeklyMTG stream, in the Q&A portion, he just drops in a subtle "and the third set" comment that he doesn't follow up on.

    Either that or he was screwing with people.

    I would think this would find a home in Krenko.

    Muxus, Winota... so many others. Not just slivers.

  • posted a message on Set boosters (yet another new type of booster)
    Prediction:

    Packs will be 6 dollars each, not 5 dollars each (about $2 more, not the $1 more than a draft pack according to the WotC spinmasters). For instance WM sells Draft Packs for $4.18 each. I would guess WM/Target/Box Stores will sell between $6.25 to $6.79 USD.

    Set Booster Box (of 30 packs, not 36) will "MSRP" at $199.99 vs. the $144.00 of a Draft booster box. Of course we know you can get a Standard BB for on average shipped from about 90 to 100 USD. So Set Booster Box can probably be had for around 150 to 160 shipped.

    Just my guesses but we will see if I am right or wrong.

    The idea is a good one, I think the execution is wrong.


    I'd guess the reason for 30 packs is to keep the same general MSRP as a normal Booster box, much like Mystery Booster did. MB did 24 packs for the $144, this is 30, so $5 is probably about right.

  • posted a message on [2XM] Maria Bartholdi - Ally filter lands
    I guess I don't really understand why these are that good? Early game, maybe, but late game this is basically the same as drawing a basic land if you built your deck reasonably well. Or am I missing something?


    This is not a commentary on their inclusion in the set, I just don't think these are that great overall. Confused by the excitement for these, I guess.

    I think the more important part of this preview article is the insinuation that none/almost none of the cards in this set will appear in Commander Legends.

    Would Baneslayer Angel count as french vanilla? It does have a unique protection though.

    Oh, and if you were getting these for $4 a pack, you were lucking out. Retail - or what would've been MSRP - should've been $6 a pack. Anything less was a result of retailers willingly losing money to sell something they didn't really need to lose money on. My stores ordered near its maximum and we were completely sold out by end of day Saturday, selling them at $6 a pack/$139 a box, what would've been the normal MSRP for these.

    Aw man that stupid greedy people/no more msrp has hit this now

    Now it’s 150 a box now it’s $6.25 a pack

    That’s still much better than master sets though since those were 10 though and atleast it’s still a unlimited print run product (print on demand)


    Ok, again, MSRP WAS NOT A LIMIT. This happened when WotC still set MSRP. MSRP has NOTHING to do with this. Stop saying that it does.

    This is a result of supply drying up and product becoming more scarce. It does not matter if it's a print to demand product - right now stores CANNOT order more because no one has more to send them. Prices will go up as a result because demand is still insane for these.

    It's retailer exclusive, not LGS exclusive. They can't really do an LGS exclusive thing that avoids online resellers since they also have physical storefronts. At least not without barring online sales, which is another load of trouble.

    Some(all?) of the foils will be revealed tomorrow at 2PM PST on WeeklyMTG. They're going to do a draft.

    Oh I’m so dumb there may have Ben a prediction and I didn’t even realize it

    How about the finishing the lair cycle with wedge lair lands

    And commander 2020 can reprint the other 5


    Ooh! Ooh! Wait. "Lair Of Behemoths" has the word OF in it! So I predict a cycle of split cards linked by the word "Of". Like... Waste//Time, or maybe Leap//Logic.

  • posted a message on Ikoria will have box toppers
    I doubt it's going to be a larger-sized card.

    It's probably just going to be reprints of big creatures, not found in Standard.

    They really hype up the tradability of these, and larger sized cards just aren't all that tradable, no matter what they are.
