    Lol, imagine opening a pack that's only value is going to be the basic labs and getting Steamflogger Boss instead

    They would also manage to screw it up somehow, I'm rather sure.
    How confident are you that they won't screw up the acorns either?

    Seems they already have with Water Gun Balloon Game. Ten bucks says if nobody on Twitter had said anything it would have gone to print like that.

    Uuuuugh.

    These are increasingly poor design decisions. (Not surprising, given the acelerated release schedule.)

    How unsurprising.

    They couldn't have chosen a less overlookable feature and still managed to fuck it up.

    People will still buy it in droves.
    Modern consumer culture is awful.

    Edit:

    (Editor's Note: In a previous version of this article, this card's holofoil stamp was displayed with the oval shape security stamp when it should have been an acorn security stamp. This card has an acorn stamp with the same format legality as other acorn-stamped cards in this article.)
    I'll give them a week to screw it up for real.

    The difference between a goofy design and a really cool, creative design is often just in the “skin” (Look At Me, I’m The DCI vs Meddling Mage). Previous Un-sets have strayed really close to designs with reasonable fantasy-world flavor and super intuitive yet creative mechanics (Three-Headed Goblin, Animate Library). Hearthstone has shown that a lot of fantasy gamers are open to game flavor that doesn’t take itself too seriously. I kinda dig the design space they’re exploring here, but the business about some of the cards being legal and others not is weird.

    So basically the future of Magic is Commander, Historic "where we test random bullshit," and "Modern Horizons the format." Color me interested.

    On the particular aspect of Steamflogger Boss, it has been stated numerous times when Unstable came out that this card had its own separate sheet.

    On all the rest, I just don't see what all the bitching is about.

    Some black-border cards won't be "tournament-legal in eternal formats", and a nut holo will be a sign they aren't. So what ? When legality is defined by banlists, how does that change anything ? And who the fuck does that actually affect in any relevant way ?

    Players that don't play in tournaments ? They don't care about tournament legality.

    Players that play in Modern or more recent tournaments ? Like a Commander set, no Unfinity card is legal in these so acorn or not doesn't change anything.

    Players that play in Legacy or Vintage tournaments ? Yeah, think of all these unaware, innocent new players entering a legacy or vintage tournament who will get burned trying to play an acorn card in a sanctioned tournament ! Dang, and they knew about silver-border being forbidden, and they knew about the format banlist, but only somehow filtered it by non-acorn cards and got caught trying to play a manual dexterity or an art-matters card ! So much for the Legacy and Vintage tournament scenes being the entry point for MtG.

    ...

    Just stop the useless bitching and do something productive with your lives instead. And for those of you who weren't bitching, thank you for demonstrating there still are some sane people on the Internet.

    Ok so they can make cards in one set with two different borderes? They'd just have to make sure it divides by the quantity of a sheet but not really because it turns out you can make a sheet of just one card and still distrib...
