Quote from TheIceManIf you look at the price graphs on Fetches, the blue ones actually went *up* upon rotation, whereas the non-blue ones dropped <$1 and had made that up and then some within a month or two. I actually don't play Modern, but I would expect a similar trend.
As for those claiming that RTR was the most opened set in history, remember that Zendikar also shattered all records when it came out.

CFB Player Zem playing updated RW Burn through an 8-man.
Quote from zemanjaskiHere's my take on an updated and tested version of the deck, run through a 4 round event online: http://www.channelfireball.com/videos/channel-zemanjaski-standard-rw-aggro/
Quote from ArousMasterThanks, yep, I'm a newbie here
One more question, you removed Firedrinker Satyr from the main, and I thought it's one of the main offensives, which lets you burn opponent in the face while removing his creatures at the same time... And if not, most of your burn will be wasted on creatures, no? How does the process usually go?
Sorry for bothering, but I'm new here, and I really like this type of decks.
Quote from ZameckI have my own speculation: Most planeswalkers that were in Zendikar are getting cards/reprints. So my theory is that we will get a new Nissa (probably playable and BG) in a random next new block, and then we will return to Zendikar with AT LEAST Nissa, Jace and some other planeswalker.
Quote from MrOwBrimaz, coursers etc etc...sometimes satyr and boros charm ain't there. I strongly disagree on YP and Chandra being bad and simple tap and burn doesn't last long vs quite a few decks. I think I prefer a little more gas :/
Quote from nobthehobbitI played this deck last night and it was a blast. I finished 3-1-1, losing to green monsters because Kalonian Hydra, drawing with WU Control and beating UB Mill, Bant Midrange and GW Aggro/Midrange. Highlights:
Against WU Control, Game 2, up a game, hitting AEtherling with Pithing Needle and watching my opponent forget to attack with it all game, which made game 2 take so long that we went to time in Game 3.
Against UB Mill, Trouble for 7.
Against GW, Magma Jet you, Scry 2, 2 to Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Searing Blood Brimaz, 3 to you, 3 to Fleecemane Lion, clearing your board, attack with Satyr Firedancer and an unleashed Rakdos Cackler for 8 damage in one turn.
I'm going to change the sideboard. I didn't like Burning Earth and will probably go with 4 Anger of the Gods (card kills Sylvan Caryatid), 4 Pithing Needle (I hate Elixir of Immortality), 4 Ratchet Bomb and 3 Toil/Trouble.
I had a lot of fun playing the deck and only ever felt I was out of the game in that second game against Control (but was perfectly satisfied with letting it drag on). Still haven't tested it against Mono-Blue or Mono-Black, though.
Quote from GalspanicWe are doing away with the Sales and Trade Forums soon so the way you did it was just fine. You have a Sales Thread in the Trading Post and when you go there you can filter by trades or sales. If others can create new threads in the old Sales Forum, that's a permissions isa and not a matter of fair or not fair. Nobody should be able to.
