  1. I've been obsessed with Rocket League since it went free-to-play. I've managed to log 150+ hours in the last 3 months. It's kind of a problem! :P
  2. Discord links are so weird. You can create an invite link and set it to never expire, but they still seem to go bad anyway. Here's a new one: https://discord.gg/cy66Fa5
  3. Me either. Ironically, my LGS died during Ravnica Allegiance, 1 set before the alleged boom. I haven't purchased paper cards since.
  4. Apparently War of the Spark was one of the biggest booms in MTG we've had in a long time. Arena brought a lot of attention to the game, but I hear that it also spiked paper sales and whatnot. Unfortunately, all of that progress was probably lost during the pandemic. Local game stores are dropping like flies again.
  5. RIP I'll be in the discord, for sure.
  6. Updated prices: Grim Tutor: $15 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon: $25 Containment Priest: $0.60 Azusa, Lost but Seeking: $8 Fabled Passage: $6 Heroic Intervention: $5 Massacre Wurm: $4 Scavenging Ooze: $1 Banesalyer Angel: $3
  7. Price of these cards before release, this might be fun to look back on and see how much the printing impacts the price: Grim Tutor: $216 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon: $63 Containment Priest: $4.50 Azusa, Lost but Seeking: $35 Fabled Passage: $12 Heroic Intervention: $18 Massacre Wurm: $19 Scavenging Ooze: $5.50 (M14 edition) Baneslayer Angel: $9 (M11 edition)
  8. Core 2021 is mostly spoiled and I have to say, this Core set is packed with value. Here are some of the high-priced reprints we're getting. Most of these cards are worth more than $10USD, with Grim Tutor being a $200+ card.
  9. Yeah, the one positive thing I took from the video is he said he gets so much fake information that he doesn't know what's true or what isn't until after the fact. So in this case, he didn't know it was true until i twas announced, and we still don't know if the list is true. So that's good I guess. However, if a content creator or trader made a connection with a reliable source, they'd have a constant stream of inside information. And considering we see these mass buyouts and sellouts days before announcements all the time, there is definitely some shady stuff happening behind the scenes.
  10. Oh yeah, I read that article, there is definitely a lot of bullshit happening behind the scenes. Rudy also posted a video recently about people emailing him leaks for Double Masters in February. He even lists some cards in the set that haven't been spoiled yet. I guess we can't confirm that the cards he shows will be in the set, but if they are, yikes!
  11. Well, this is the pre-order price on Amazon, though in the past these have been a little bit higher than the actual price so I'd take this with a grain of salt. It doesn't look great, but when you consider each pack has 2 rares you're technically paying $8 per rare, which is less than many previous Masters set, and the rare slot is all that really matters anyway in terms of value. There are rumors that it's $300 per box. With 24 packs per box and (at least) 2 rares per pack, you're paying about $6.25 per rare, which is less than ORIGINAL Modern Masters at $7. None of this really matter until we see what's in the set, of course. If we have the cheapest price-per-rare ration ever but also have no value in the set it doesn't mean anything. We'll have to wait and see what's in the set and see how the EV shakes out.
  12. I honestly haven't seen anyone talking about that, but yeah, I guess they did.
  13. Interesting note about the box toppers: Did you notice the artists? I don't know if it's a theme throughout the set, but we have new art from multiple classic MTG artists. Ron Spencer, Wayne Reynolds, Scott M. Fischer, and Kev Walker!
  14. So we're getting a new masters set. This one is called "Double Masters," and apparently the idea is that...well, everything is doubled. 2 box toppers per box, 2 rares per pack, 2 foils per pack, and the 2 foils can be rares so technically up to 4 rares per pack. We've also seen some spicy reprints so far. Here are the announcement articles - they posted it twice with a different preview because that's the gimmick I guess.

  15. Yeah, it's the same price on steam.
