A Magical Huffalump Resides Here: My Thoughts About Modern Masters

A Magical Huffalump Resides Here

My name is Ed, I am a programmer. Just another dude with another blog. I like MTG, Open Source (more towards FREE software). I like sports, and eventually I hope to do business and do good for the world in general. This blog is gonna be about Magic The Gathering. Decklists and snippets will be posted here. It may lead somewhere or nowhere, as with all things arcane, that was bloody obvious =)

My Thoughts About Modern Masters

I think it sucks.

I'm not sure what they could possibly print to make it so expensive. But as it is I don't think I will be able to get two boxes as I originally planned.

It looks like its gonna cost something like 300USD  per box. Its becoming a price gorging excercise for the retailer and for what?

What could they possibly print that i cannot circumvent with current cards? (Current being the current blocks - so the price should not be that ridiculous yet).

I am just glad I have 4 ofs of almost very card after Vintage level cards. Hence I know the power level and really... it is laughable how they are price gorging this set. It is sad. It was marketed as adding to the pool, but really Modern's success will be circumvented by events such as this.

But there is hope of course. There is always hope.

Hey I just did an Aragon!! W00t!

Anyways *ahem* the hope is that I strongly believe that you do not need the cards from Modern Masters at all. Actually I was rather disappointed with the pool that Modern Masters will be printing from and initially only wanted to buy for fun, for the alternate art. A Tarmogoyf would just be icing.

Now with the current mad upward spiraling, I see Modern Masters as a mistake with no one gaining but the higher end retailers. Fortunately we don't actually need this set.

I'll probably just crack a pack or two for the sake of it (if we even get to see it =) )

Side note:

I have a new Eggy kinda deck for my next post I think. A cross between Epic Experiment and the current Eggs. But have no doubt, the Eggs deck is more resilient. Mine is more of a nonbo fun deck that just kinda cycles through all the zones. Oh ya that sounds fun for the pilot and boredom for the opponent, so... its more of a solitaire deck heh

And oh ya its probably perfectly serviceable and probably have nothing printed in Modern Masters Voila! ;) well actually some cards may be printed in Modern Masters (theres no guarantee right), but then that would make Modern Masters sad since none of the cards are really expensive? With maybe the Lotus Bloom and Reshape struggling to gain traction.
