Quote from Kane49Ok im confused, how come people say it wont be worth the price tag.
The Rares are just insane
Quote from Mox RyanGreat, as if standard wasn't expensive enough. If this catches on at my LGS it just might convince me to stop playing all together.
Quote from Throat WolfeIt would be strange to have "dragon" in the set name and to not have a dragon theme. Of course, with 10 guilds also fighting for space, where does the space for the theme come from? If there is a dragon theme, the most likely place for that theme is within the guilds.
Mark Rosewater has also strongly hinted at the existence of "guild champions" (legendary guild multicolor creatures that flavor-wise are not the guild leaders) in the third set of the block.
It is possible that the "guild champions" are dragons. That is to say, each guild gets a two-color legendary dragon creature. Legendary dragons exist for every three-color combination; they could plausibly exist in two-color combinations as well.
Having "guild champions" at all seems difficult, since most legendary creatures are mythic rare. If guild champions are printed at mythic it means that every mythic is a guild champion, since most small expansions have only 10 mythics. The other two options are: they are rare or they don't exist.
I am curious to see.
Quote from flynne6In regards to the 2 people defending Izzet as strong, take in mind that BOTH opened Niv-Mizzet, whom most consider the biggest bomb in the set. Not trying to doubt anyone's ability as a player but just to clarify an on topic issue, given we are mostly talking about guild strength. So, I guess you could say, Izzet still seems to be the consensus weakest of the guilds on it's own... unless you get the single best mythic in the set which happens to be in those colors.
Quote from Longshanks126I must have gotten super lucky
Izzet needs a good pool to work with
Yes Selesnya was the strongest and Izzet the weakest
Quote from Longshanks126
pulled Niv Mizzet from my guild pack (only got to play him 3 times, and 2 out of the three my opponent was already at 3 or less life...)
