    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    It's you who doesn't understand this lol

    Island is worth a card (this is clear, many people play island in their deck for the purpose of going -1 card in hand +1 island on the battlefield)
    If you...

    Re: UW Sagas

    Copying Urza's Sage doesn't even seem that good to me
    Like you already have to pay 2 to make a construct from the original saga
    Then to take advantage of the Estrids you have to pay an additional 2...
  3. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    If WotC starts printing RL cards then RL cards become "actual magic product"
    Do you not think WotC is already marketing towards non-proxy edh players
  4. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    My position on this has been consistent through the whole thread (and basically forever, definitely at least for the last several years)

    - I think it would be a good thing from player perspective...
  5. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    I think this is simply an example of the popularity / success of MTG in general increasing over time rather than "the maximum price of tarmogoyf that the market will tolerate is controlled directly...
  6. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    I don't know anything about shoes but my suspicion would be that this is closer to the fetchland / imperial seal / designer bag situation, where the company produces collectible new items with...
  7. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Ok let me try and explain it as simple as possible:

    The argument put forward was that not reprinting reserved list cards (for whatever reason) gives the game an aura of exclusivity and therefore...
  8. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    You may have noticed that I covertly put "does" in parentheses in anticipation of this response. Whether WotC choose not to print RL cards because of some overarching long term business goal or...
  9. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Sure, the point is that Dom P company puts new bottles of Dom P on the shelves every day (even if it's not very many) and so does Gucci etc etc. Can (does) WotC do this with dual lands? No. So...
  10. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    If any item can be considered a "luxury good" only based on its value then any rare antique/collectible can be considered a luxury good (e.g. a faberge egg or the mona lisa or whatever other...
  11. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    They lose the counter you lose your dress down
    You gain a 1drop artifact and you lose the urzas saga
    it's a 2-for-2


    Now you're going up "a" card (you lose dressdown and a land, and you gain a...
  12. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    De Beers hypes/markets diamonds to sell those exact diamonds, LV hypes/markets bags to sell those exact bags

    What you are arguing is that wotc 'hypes' (by virtue of not reprinting them even though...
  13. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    What we are doing is asking "assuming the reserved list did not exist, would it benefit wotc to be able to print reserved list cards" and coming up with ideas like
    - It seems like it would allow...
  14. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Sure I don't disagree that if the reprint supply is so scarce that the price stays the same/similar that the total revenue from duals is likely to be small compared to other wotc products, whether...
  15. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    The reserved list only helps bolster the illusion for cards that wotc can't make any money off of, is the problem.
    The fact that the RL exists doesn't give me some magical confidence that the value...
  16. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Let's make things really simple:
    Right now, some number of people are willing to spend hundreds / thousands of dollars on duals/power/workshops/bazaar etc.
    WotC doesn't currently get 1 cent of...
  17. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    No, I understand this 100%


    If you never get rid of the RL those long term profits are never realized because WotC can't take advantage of the equity in the RL cards, do you agree? So your...
  18. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Would anyone here "mind?" unlikely


    Probably not



    Because (as people have already explained to you, multiple times) it wouldn't solve anything

    The real dual lands are still strictly...
  19. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    I don't think MTG cards are a Veblen good, no.

    This analogy also falls apart because Louis Vuitton doesn't have a policy in place that prevents them from producing expensive designer bags in 2021...
  20. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Yes, you obviously can convince a player to pony up a bit of extra cash for some goodies they really want
    Yes this is what the secret lairs are for
    If these goodies are currently selling for $500+...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    From like a general kind of game-design point of view this is a fair observation but in legacy if these types of creatures cost a lot of mana they were already effectively shut out by bolt and swords...
  22. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Great, let's hear them then.
    You could make some argument for a kind of "they are waiting until the price climbs even higher before reprint" but then why do they print fetchlands in modern when they...
  23. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Ultimately the point is that you don't need to convince ME. I WANT the reserved list to go away.




    If it's so simple why haven't they already done it? It would be free money for WotC/Hasbro....
  24. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    The important difference is exactly that no promise was made. "basically the same" except for the one crucial factor might as well be not the same at all


    Would the price of e.g. revised duals...
  25. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Around 2010 WotC invited Ben Bleiweiss (who was like the inventory manager for SCG at the time or at least someone who had a very publicly-known vested interest in the value of MTG cards) and Stephen...
