Today's MTG secondary market is absolutely stupid, especially Modern scene where some douches basically buy out certain cards that are hyped up off the market, creating artificial price hikes.

Hasbro doesn't help about this either. They just c&d'ed Cockatrice recently in hope to add more real players i.e. add more single card demands.

The new you-make-a-card contest is going on, and it is in the process of choosing the card type. It is down to enchantment or land.

http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazin...ly/feature/239

I have a soft spot for enchantment, but with EDH blooming land should be the best pick.

Don't wish another Crucible of World is coming though.

I actually like the modern concept, since I can no longer afford the legacy duals, problem is certain cards are already becoming like legacy prices due to modern demand, ie Thoughtsize, confidant, vendillion clique and co.

Good thing I played alot during that time and have those and hopefully a modern masters reprint will stimy the increase.

I also hate price gougers and speculators who buy all the stuff up in hopes of manipulating the market, one reason I hate Starcity games since they are the number one price gougers of stuff.

Occasionally shark jumping by WoTC; the legendary rules has been changed again.

Now, two same legends in the battlefield won't killed each other anymore. Both players may play the same legends at the same time but each can only have one legend at a time. Same goes to planeswalkers.

So, clone tricks against certain annoying legends (Emrakul, Geist of Saint Traft, Gaea's Cradle, etc.) won't work anymore.

what a dumb a$$ rule over simplyfying the game, the only rule I did like was changing of the sideboarding rule, where its now any number until 15 cards and the switching of sideboard and main deck is no longer swapping 1:1

Somebody speculates that the change is just because Theros block will be full of legends ala Kamikawa block.

most likely it is since Theros seems to be of Greek mythology and stuff.

The thing is that, in Standard scene, it will give enormous power to Geist of Saint Traft and Sigarda users in the next 3 months, and EDH will a mess for blue players.

this actually makes Show and tell so strong in legacy since it weakens Karakas and the clone effects people sideboard in to counter emrakul and strengthens Omniscience since they can go Omni into Emrakul extra turn then Emrakul again next turn and still keep one Emrakul in play. Also alot of EDH generals just became extremely hard to kill like the and formetioned Sigarda, Uril and Thrun and Geist

Somewhat overrated Voice of Resurgence officially reaches 50 bucks a pop.

And extremely overpriced Modern Master is coming.

Hasbro knows how to suck MTG fans blood.

Modern format has screwed everything up in term of prices.

Big changes in standard format coming very soon (2015-16)!

http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles.../metamorphosis

- No more 3 sets per block. 2 sets per block instead.
- No more core sets.
- Standard format will contain 3 blocks, and will be rotated when the first set of the next block is released.
