  1. If the delays in the main event yesterday are any sort of guide, it's probably better to stick to the slightly smaller GPs, or at l least stay closer to home so you can go for a nap between rounds
  2. Counterspell
  3. It does make the rarity distribution a bit of a challenge though...
  4. Hopefully they've used up all the left over Kaladesh at submissions for this and we can now be done with them On the plus side, finally a True Name Nemesis reprint, thanks Wizards!
  5. This can't have been Wizards' plan when they came up with Brawl. To keep selling product they need people playing Standard, and now Brawl as well, but not for the two to compete for the same player base
  6. Is it really possible for a company the size of Hasbro to have so many leaks like this accidentally? They seem to happen coincidentally right around the time the excitement about a new set had peaked and players'attention might start to wander away from magic...
  7. They need Arena to have at least one of (a) real constructed formats- Standard at least should be part of the game surely- and (b) draft or sealed. The economy is still awful, which puts a lot of people off building constructed decks, as being hold of the rare and mythic cards you need is so hard, but at the minute the only play option is not-quite-Standard with no KLD/AER in the game. It's not entirely what will cause true Standard to become part of the game, but I expect it will just be time and the rotation in Sept/Oct time
  8. Agreed. Watching the coverage of the last legacy GP, i reached the tipping point of having seen more then enough games dominated by who can stick a Deathrite
  9. My wish would be to remove the planeswalker card type. Their introduction had overall been a negative influence on the chances of a typical constructed game being balanced and interactive, the first player to land a planeeswalker too often goes on from there to build up an insurmountable advantage
  10. Shaping up to be a sweet set, good to have Richard Garfield back on board. I might even pick up a booster box for the first time since Shadows over Innistrad
  11. The last cards that have a different set symbol on them, are they from the new duel deck or something?
  12. If they ever downshift Surgical Extraction to become pauper legal, the relentless rats deck becomes kind of sad
  13. These are the Eventide ones, looks like the Shadowmoor allied colour pair set are not included, shame but 10 card rare cycles are difficult to reprint
  14. Pillage is my favourite so far. Counterspell is back again too, looks like I need to pick up another foil version to keep my full set
