    [Judge Promo] Swords to Plowshares (new frame)



    Seriously? Is this really needed? Foil Swords already exist as promo and normal swords are about 2. There is no need to increase the amount of pimp on the market.

    We NEED FoW goddamn

    Ugh, seriously? It doesn't even look good. We already had an old border foil!

    Honestly I can't stand old frames anymore. I wrote a 1538-page letter to Wizards went it happened - this was like, 10 months after I started playing , so of course I raged about it - but man did I get over it quickly. Especially the bit about emphasizing power and toughness in the way that they have; in retrospect on older cards, p/t looks like an afterthought, something that just gets jammed in the corner and forgotten, because you'd rather be playing Black and Blue spells anyway.

    I stand by my golf club comment. It looks like a driver.

    FOREs to Plowshares
    haha yes. much better.

    Now all I want to see is an alternate StP art based on this:

    Personally I dislike the new card frame and have since they started using it, but that's besides the point here.

    I love foils and I collect foil sets and love to play them and show them off to people, and nothing gives me more pleasure that beating someone in the face with my all foil Death and Taxes deck... at least as foil as it can be without looking ugly, ie: the judge Karakas. I hate the Karakas mainly because of the enormous and hideous shooting star across half the card, it's over done. I would've wanted a set of them if the shooting star wasn't obnoxious, but tastefully done such as the old frame foils, set foils, or even the way they did the stars for grand prix where the set symbol goes. Just ugly across the whole text box, so because of that my Death and Taxes deck has a set of FNM StP and a set of foil Ports and a set of MPR wastelands, the awesome foils, you know, not the ugly Karakas. 71 of 75 cards foil is better than 75 of 75 if it means not playing the judge karakas. The picture on the judge swords is fine, just not iconic for the card that everyone loves, but the non-selling point for many I know and I'm sure many of you guys/gals on the Source, is the star across the text box like that.

    End of rant about the hideous judge promo shooting stars... at least until they make another one of my favorite cards ugly with it.

    The art looks like a blurred picture of Tiger Woods.

    There's already a foil version (this takes the exclusiveness aways, although the old frame and original art put the other version way above this one), I think there are far better options for Judge Promos, Force of Will being the elephant in the room.

    I do like the fact that they are giving older cards Judge Promo treatment. A small part of me still has hope for a Reserve List abolishment and the consequential flourishing of the best format in Magic.
    It's also scientifically proven that resolving Nicol Bolas during a competitive legacy event causes the caster's penis to grow a good two or three inches.

    I wish they just used the Terese Nielsen art. That would look awesome in foil.
    I am convinced that WotC is "dumbing" the game because of all the stupid posts they come across on MTG-related forums

    HAHAHAHAHAHA here you go buddy thanks for all your hardwork! A $5.00 turd foil.

    A judge could work as a 3rd world farm laborer for better pay off.

    WotC: we need non-foil Korean old border judge promos! Now! Pay these people!

    Old brown bordered non-foil Korean Chalice of the Void / 3ball / Lodestone Golem / Blightsteel (Grrr!) would be insta $200.

    - Art looks like someone threw up
    - Modern frame
    - Foiled

    That's three strikes. Disgusting.

    Dont forget Crucible of Worlds. A card designed by players deserves to be in old brown frame.

    So you're choosing Korean over non-Foil? Ew. I can't stand foreign cards and people who use them annoy the crap outta me. At least foiling adds life to the card.

    Can't believe all the tears and crying here. I like the stp promo. Gives two options to a staple that will exist indefinitely. Amazing what people will weep and whine about.

    I like the effect that the picture gives. It's definitely different. I do agree that the shooting star is kinda Meh. But I mean its still a unique art to Magic.
