    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.

    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.

    I don't know if that timeline is correct, because I thought Eldraine happened before Battlebond.

    Could just be a different Level-Up mechanic too.

    It's NOT going to be in a Standard set. They've already said that effect is no longer in black.

    I still think they're monocolor. They're meant to replace Planeswalker decks for the set, and they're mechanically tied to Ikoria. I don't think they're going to make these too complex.


    Where have they said this? As Im aware the planeswalker decks are moving to being core sets and this is the "yearly commander decks" we normally get in late summer/ fall just tied with a set this time.


    They said it in the article where they first announced them. Same with the Zendikar decks.

    And they've been doing four decks for years. Suddenly they're doing five again, and replacing an entry-level product with them? Yeah, I'm sticking with the mono-color idea. Could be wrong, we'll see.

    Normal MSRP for the challenger decks this year look like it would've been about $35 per.

    Except I do. If you’re trying to make 10%-30% off product alone, your store will be closing...


    If you're settling for 10-30%, that probably has a lot to do with it. You should be shooting for a 50% margin on damn near everything except LEGO and a handful of other stuff. Granted, that is on top of running events and snacks, but I guarantee you stores don't/can't rely solely on snacks and event tickets to stay afloat. The product sales matter a lot to any store's bottom line.

    It's probably going to be all related to Valentine's Day. Couples? Partners?
