  1. Yeah, the one positive thing I took from the video is he said he gets so much fake information that he doesn't know what's true or what isn't until after the fact. So in this case, he didn't know it was true until i twas announced, and we still don't know if the list is true. So that's good I guess. However, if a content creator or trader made a connection with a reliable source, they'd have a constant stream of inside information. And considering we see these mass buyouts and sellouts days before announcements all the time, there is definitely some shady stuff happening behind the scenes.
  2. Oh yeah, I read that article, there is definitely a lot of bullshit happening behind the scenes. Rudy also posted a video recently about people emailing him leaks for Double Masters in February. He even lists some cards in the set that haven't been spoiled yet. I guess we can't confirm that the cards he shows will be in the set, but if they are, yikes!
  3. Well, this is the pre-order price on Amazon, though in the past these have been a little bit higher than the actual price so I'd take this with a grain of salt. It doesn't look great, but when you consider each pack has 2 rares you're technically paying $8 per rare, which is less than many previous Masters set, and the rare slot is all that really matters anyway in terms of value. There are rumors that it's $300 per box. With 24 packs per box and (at least) 2 rares per pack, you're paying about $6.25 per rare, which is less than ORIGINAL Modern Masters at $7. None of this really matter until we see what's in the set, of course. If we have the cheapest price-per-rare ration ever but also have no value in the set it doesn't mean anything. We'll have to wait and see what's in the set and see how the EV shakes out.
  4. So we're getting a new masters set. This one is called "Double Masters," and apparently the idea is that...well, everything is doubled. 2 box toppers per box, 2 rares per pack, 2 foils per pack, and the 2 foils can be rares so technically up to 4 rares per pack. We've also seen some spicy reprints so far. Here are the announcement articles - they posted it twice with a different preview because that's the gimmick I guess.

  5. I honestly haven't seen anyone talking about that, but yeah, I guess they did.
  6. Interesting note about the box toppers: Did you notice the artists? I don't know if it's a theme throughout the set, but we have new art from multiple classic MTG artists. Ron Spencer, Wayne Reynolds, Scott M. Fischer, and Kev Walker!
  7. Yeah, it's the same price on steam.
  8. Darkest Dungeon has a bit of a cult following, so if you're a fan of that game you've probably already heard of this one. It's a new roguelike RPG with many of the same elements, but it's definitely MUCH different and, in my opinion, definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of Darkest Dungeon. I've seen a lot of the DD community shoot this game down just because it's clearly inspired by their favorite game, and I get that, but it I remember in the early 2000's every single ARPG that was ever released was deemed "just a Diablo-clone" and "not as good as Diablo." Without question, the game looks a LOT like Darkest Dungeon. But the fact that there is already a clone seems to indicate that there is a market for this type of tactical, roguelike RPG and if you're a fan of that type of thing, it's definitely worth checking out. I personally bought the game yesterday and have already sunk 6 hours into it. I haven't finished it and I can't speak to the difficulty of the game as I'm doing a Easy runthrough to familiarize myself with the mechanics, but so far it's looking pretty solid! Here's the trailer if you haven't seen it:
  9. More Godzilla-themed cards:
  10. Ikoria previews begin today, and since preview season is shortened to just 1 week we are getting a TON of information. However, none of that matters, because Godzilla. These are indeed real cards, however they are unique in that they aren't part of the main set. WOTC teamed up with Toho to bring us the "Godzilla" series, which is like a Masterpiece series, and if you look below the titles of these cards, you'll see their ACTUAL names. Here's an example: And here is Luminous Broodmothra, which is converted to Mothra for the Godzilla series.
