Whats your flavor of basics?

74 posts in this topic

Those original black border basics are hard to beat. Picking some up is still on my to do list, in the meantime I'm an unhinged guy, love the art on those.

Also a fan of the urza's saga basics, which I think John Avon was also involved the art for. For plains and mountains, ice age snow covered basics look great too, swamps islands forests not so much

Those aren't originals, they are from revised technically.

The International release started with revised but they came in white and black borders.

I mostly use Unhinged as well, except for in limited, where I carry a box of BFZ basics (10 each for draft/sealed, 80 each for my cube).  Modern Merfolk is currently running Unglued Islands, as I got 26 from a friend in a mono U edh deck.

I'd love to pick up some more unglued lands. I threw all mine away about 15 years ago, what an idiot

I liked full art Zendikar lands, but after BFZ they became less cool.  Since then I've been trying to use the older lands, not from a specific set but mostly from Revised (I think)

Definitely revised, there was no tap symbol before that, and 4th edition has 1995 in the copyright line

I mainly use BFZ Full art lands but I definitely prefer the basics from Urza and Tempest. I need to get my hands on more of those eventually.

I team has huge stacks of tempest and Urza lands, I'm trying to get a hold of german ones, but it's tricky.

Foils from each set. However, now I am making the lands my own by doing alters to them. I'll have to post a picture later. :) 

Sweet!  Looking forward to checking those out

If I could run alters I would.

You can't really run them at high tier tournaments.

Anything with some good pictures on the front. I really want to get some of the Tarkir packs with dragons on the front. Return to Ravica with Niv-Mizzet, 2015 Core Set Chandra, First Innestrad Liliana, werewolf; Ajani from Journey to Nyx....

I'll take a look in the back room at my shop to see what we have.

That would be awesome :) 

I can almost positively say we don't have Innistrad. We might have dark ascension, Takir is easy enough to find still, I have a few russian boxes on 2015 in my collection, I don't know about RTR boxes, and I can easily pick up a box of jtn for like $30-40 since it has no value.
