    Have we hit peak money gouging? 'Magic: The Baseballing'

    Dear lords, how deep in the barrel of ideas they had to dig to come up with this one (not forgetting the 'Now on VHS!'):

    Realistically, we are not even close to the peak though.

    We haven't even begun to see the start.

    At least those make it easy to fake cards because nobody would check.
    Downside is you'd have to look at these ugly as sin artworks and have to think for 5 min every time you look at the card to figure out what the hell it's supposed to be or if you accidentally got a tip card in your deck.

    EDH was a lot more fun when you had to discover the cool gems and interactions instead of WOTC just handing you everything.

    Why not just ignoring it? They look cool, I won't buy these thought because it's a cash grab.

    1.) They're pretty well realized, actually.

    2.) I hate them.
