    Well, even more absurdly, I buy all these, but I barely get to play Legacy once a month, and then I play EDH less than once every 3-4 months.

    I'm addicted to collecting though...but with the prices on those 2016 ones, likely I never get them to have "all" of them.

    This is why I've decided to collect only parts of magic that are affordable. Like just the Oversized cards from the Commander decks. Under five bucks and I can get the whole set every year. Shuffle them into your scheme deck for the ultimate Type 4 Madness!

    I never personally liked Type 4. But how does one use Schemes in Type 4, or am I misunderstanding what Type 4 is here?

    Honestly, I had a "Type 5" pile, that I made when I took my Cube apart since it was rarely ever played. Type 5 is something from the old TMD days, where rather than unlimited mana, you play spells as "Lands" that tap for their Mana Cost. There are no actual Lands in the pile. It's actually pretty neat, games are fast, swingy, and absurd without being totally off the rails (to me).

    Play them as sorceries. Ongoing as enchantments.

    I play Legacy about 4 times a year at the moment but will buy cards for my legacy deck (though it's usually cheap stuff from new sets). Play EDH pretty much every weekend but never buy cards for it. Funny how it goes.

    Ah, ok. Neat. I have (I think) at least one of every Scheme. Also have the Planes for Planechase. 4 player EDH with Planechase using the "Planar Map" might well be the most fun way to play Magic to me. We once worked in Archenemy in there, but everyone quit when I had Welder, Sundering Titan (it was still legal back then), 3 extra turns queued up from Otaria, and something like 11 or 12 cards in hand from Your Puny Minds Cannot Fathom,

    I mean, I don't blame them, I think my tree opponents collective had 4 permanents at that point...

    Planar Map is legit the most fun way to Planechase. If I could pick up a set of the planes for $40 bucks, I'd do so even though I rarely get to play anymore.

    What do you do with all your Commander Pre-Cons? Leave them sealed? Or play with them without modifying? Otherwise, why not just buy the singles from them...

    Yeah, I don't even remember last time I had the time to play Planechase. But I am glad I have all the Planes, that I bought fairly cheap when they first came out, since no one really cared about them then.

    I just crack all my pre-cons and put them in 9-pocket pages, in binders, like every other "set." Could I buy just all the "new" cards as singles? Sure. Would it save me money? I guess, but probably not all that much, so I just spend the bit more and get all the reprints as well. Not to mention it's just easier to buy and easier to organize.

    Plus, "completeness" really appeals to me, even if over 60% of the stuff I am unlikely to really ever need, especially since I usually try to focus on original printings, not reprints, where realistically feasible. In the old days though, I had numerous EDH decks ready to go, since we played often. Off the top of my head, I can recall having Rosheen, Damia, Shirei, Numot, Rhys, Teysa, Oros, Sedris and Zur all together at the same time. I might have even had over 10 at one point and none were really "suffering" in card choices to the others, so having a "deep" collection does really appeal to me. Even if it's only in "prospective" and not "actual" use.

    Like I said though, I have a problem...

    Storybook mechanic or just a new frame on saga?

    Likely a new mechanic. But this is really the wrong thread for all this, since it's for Throne of Eldraine, not C19.

    That's actually the second two, but definitely the best ones so far.

    Is Ravager playable in Moon Stompy?

    According to Wizards, this is a woman:
