    I wanted the Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition, but any gaming store I’d travel to to pick it up is a.) Not getting any copies b.) Is getting their limit of ten but are going to sit on them all to use them as tournament first place prizes c.) or will do a raffle to determine who gets to buy them. Here, for over a $100 less I have a puncher’s chance to get at least 3 different Fetchlands in the summer drop bundle for $170. Anyone care to talk me out of getting this bundle if the Ultimate Edition goes for close to $300?

    I might actually buy the bundle. I have no interest in anything but maybe the Birds Of Paradise but I’ll have a shot at all five or four or three of the Fetchlands. My LGS are raffling off their Ultimate Edition copies they get in.

    Call me when they do Secret Lair: Slivers.


    You really want that? Humanoid, Day-Glo abominations that have no relation to what we think of as Slivers? Because that's what you're gonna get.


    Absolutely. Bring it on. I’m blinging out all my Sliver decks. I actually want a Sliver Hive printed somewhere somehow depicting Shandalar Slivers whether it’s in a Secert Lair or what have you. But, Mark Rosewater tells us the Shandalar humanoid Slivers were so badly received that my wish for such a Sliver Hive card is a long shot. They’re not going to use Shandalar Slivers in a Secret Lair product.

    I’m ecstatic I’m not buying any of these. Lets me save my mtg money on a ABUR dual land purchase or something.

    Either this set has some Slivers reprinted/new artwork or I’m not buying any of it.

    After no Slivers, I get very choosey on cards after that. And no Fetchlands starts to complicate things.

    [quote from="Werewolf_Rawr »" url="/forums/magic-fundamentals/the-rumor-mill/817185-gozilla-land-secret-lair?comment=16"]They already have with me on the enemy Fetchlands and Kaleidoscope Killers.

    You actually bought the enemy fetchland one?!
    </blockquote>

    Nay. I’m going to track down at least all five Fetchlands. That’s what I meant.

    I love how easy it is to skip all of these. Feels good.


    Same. But I am happy they are frequently releasing and making new Secret Lairs on a very reliable time frame. It could only increase the odds they do hit on something I would actually want. They already have with me on the enemy Fetchlands and Kaleidoscope Killers.

    I will say this, other than the Tricycle lands in foil, the one other thing I’m interested in Ikoria are the +1/+1 punch out counters. I could use about +60 of those.

    Well, here are the only singles I’ll be getting from this set, 3 foils of each plus the foil (if they come in foil) alternative art for each.

    I think these emerge as the third best multilands in the game: ABUR duals, shocklands, then these.

    And watch WotC sell the individual Drops of each land for >$50.00 per box. Like everyone here said, WotC doesn’t acknowledge the secondary market. What a joke.

  • posted a message on 2 brand new keywords for older abilitys (potentionally)
    I really see no point in keywording Unstoppable and Backbone. That doesn’t fix blue’s need for a combative keyword, as that would be the biggest need of something new to add to the game on a evergreen basis. I didn’t like Prowess’s flavor but I was getting used to it just as it got yanked. But whatever.

    There is a very explicit reason they haven't been printed in standard. Every time they have been in standard they have caused problems.


    You say that like the cards being absurdly expensive isn’t another type of problem.


    Also, I can’t tell where the Scalding Tarn is supposed to be- Zendikar? Shadowmoor? Grixis?



    The Scalding Tarn is Shiv in Dominaria, the Marsh Flats is Lorwyn, the Verdant Catacombs is Innistrad, the Arid Mesa is Amonkhet, and the Misty Rainforest is Ixalan.

    Have we confirmed that the “second printing” isn’t the one random fetch you get with the full summer secret lair bundle? I wouldn’t be surprised, sadly.


    Yeah, I don’t want a random Fetchland from a product I may not want, I want a copy of each Fetchland that I could have had at WotC’s MSRP had they done this Secret Lair at print for demand. If WotC does seriously listen to a place like this, I swear places like this doesn’t think things through before we run our mouth.

    God damn I wish my favorite band, who barely ever listens to us hardcores about any advice whether it’s which songs should be played per night, to which shows they should release to us, listens as much as WotC apparently watches these boards. You could tell I’m frustrated.

    At only 10 per store few if any will go for 165. It’s a joke


    I fully expect the “MSRP”, because there isn’t one, to be $200. I could maybe talk myself into getting one of these for that price if this was printed for demand. This is another cluster**** by WotC.

    Wizards: “Wizards does not recognize the secondary market”.

    Also Wizards: “here’s 5 foil snow lands for $30. Here’s 5 nonfoil fetchlands for more than $165”.

    GTFOH.

    At prices north of $165, would it REALLY have been too much to at least get 2 sweet basics paired with each fetch of the type they could search for?

    They made the effort to do each one by a different artist, and each one on a different recognizable plane, so they should have expanded upon that with each pair of basics, IE Seb does a sweet Ixilan Forest and Island.


    What snow lands?
