New Masters Set - DOUBLE MASTERS

7 posts in this topic

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.

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!

I probably missed it, but they back tracked on the whole no more Masters sets?

Well, sign me up for that non-foil Atraxa. I wonder how hard the original will get hit, value wise? Shoulda, coulda, woulda sold off that and Kaalia while I had the chance.

Here's hoping for a second go-around for Assassin's Trophy and Heroic Intervention.

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.
