True, Felidar being white, costing manas and not being a lands are all BIG nerfs. But i think the fact you do not have to reach for 7+ lands for it to be able to go wide is so much bigger of a deal it will end up being as cancerous. That said it will be able to fit in so fewer decks due to W being absolute shit that i don't think it will draw as much hate as field did.

I don't think most people would consider dropping Magic entirely and selling every single card they own solely because of the last two years of pure ass. In this case I'd guess that the average case of cashing out is selling off multiple decks, liquidating binders of constructed staples, and/or taking the proxypill.

I sold 75% of my collection, some for credit and most for cash. Bought a Mox, some cheap cube stuff, and angels with store credit. Put some cash into proxies to replace what I sold in EDH/cube, a fair amount of cash into board gaming, and the rest went into savings. I've sold off $6000+ at this point.

>>75164562
>>75164679
I don't know what platform you're using to sell, but FWIW Card Kingdom usually has decent offers on their buylist (if I had to spitball a range I'd say ~75% of TCG low is typical with them). They won't take *everything*, but for what you can offload on them, you'll save a good bit on shipping and seller fees and won't have to worry about scammers or card condition nazis or shipping off cards to ten billion different addresses. I've only had good experiences with them.

You can, but put a big fat pricetag, like 25-30% above current market price. It will sell anyway, the demand is insane for duals, and you'll have less regrets since you'd get more money out of it.

This. On the other end of the spectrum, the healthiest competitive format for the moment is unironically pioneer, and ppl assume the contrary. I don't blame them tho, it was so much of a shitshow during oko-dominance, then combo winter. But rn it's full of homebrews and fun decks, sure aggro is kinda dominant, but it's slow-paced aggro and have many differents styles and tribe, even fucking walls aggro get results.

The set will be centered around five houses, each with a color of mana.

White will be the gryffindor rip-off house, but will suck awfully except for the protagonist, who will be a black female Harry Potter analogue that has a five color activation.

There’ll be a lot of cycles where the blue or green card absolutely shits on all the others. Some won’t even have a red option.

With 40K MacDonnalds restorants around the world they can afford to produce their $4.00 big mac for $0.65. Making the same burger at home for a three person family would cost you $6 a piece.

Making 1K copies of a single 54 card deck costs $200. Making 10K copies costs $1000, Making 50K copies costs $1750. That's why chinaman fakes are actually getting cheaper as demand and quality increases.

Not him, but his point is solid. You can't make shit at home cheaper than an assembly line with huge discounts can do. The burger analogy is there because you can easily try this at home.
Even if you made a tiny burger, there is still a minimum portion of lettuce, beef, bread, etc. These things make the base cost to get started more than it cost got you to make number 2 burger.

Setting up the machine to print cards is expensive. The cost of each card isn't that high when you make a lot of them.

nah senpai. you didn't buy exactly $3.50 of ingredients that turned into that burger. you bought a tube of ground beef, which under current market rates are like $5/lb, you bought a jar of pickles for $3-4 because you can't just buy a few for your burger, you bought more lettuce and tomato and cheese than you needed because you can't just buy 15 cents worth of each to make exactly one burger

you spent at least $10 to make your sub $4 burger. this is what large scale production can overcome, having no "left overs", using every single cent worth of raw material they purchased and turning it over to the end consumers

Maybe this is easier for you to understand: driving 1 mile can easily cost $10k if you need to buy a car for this purpose. You can drive a lot more than that single mile, but you need that much to buy the car.
In that sense, it is cheaper to get a taxi.
But if you scale up the demand to 300000 miles, getting your own car is way cheaper. But at that point, you are the big production producing a lot of miles.

Prerelease Korlash, Heir to Blackblade. RKF art so it's great, it has the Future Sight frame and eye that absolutely pops with foil, but the part that doesn't come across in pictures is that the foil treatment in the art is actually just the background layer - when you shine on the foil the pyre in the background blazes behind him, and the gems in the sword and the batshit insane eyes shine out. It looks good, it looks good as foil, but it's one of the only cards I've seen where it looks like it was specifically designed to be foiled.

Plus because it was a prerelease it can't be worth more than a buck or whatever.

FIRE itself is basically NWO but in reverse: instead of powering commons down, they power them up. But by powering commons up, the rares and mythics lose a certain je ne sais quoi they used to have, so R&D decided to power them up as well. This lead to the worst sets the game's had since 8th edition, and the worst problem cards that have no answers, starting with WAR 'walkers with static abilities, with the current end point being MDFCs, the giant enablers for landless dredge, landless belcher, and Reforge the Paths that they are.

Cat tribal is extremely popular with women, trannies, and söyboys/reddit types. Adding the quirky/cute artstyle just drives them even crazier for it, so you have them wanting the lair to either pimp out an existing cat deck, start one, or just have it because they’re obsessed with cats. The dog lair will probably be similar, the dog fanbase is reddit as shit and fucking sucks.

Even the EDH players are turning against this shit. By making this exclusive product commander legal, they've shown their hand that EDH is the biggest cash cow they have. The rules committee is even considering prebanning them to discourage this kind of practice from WotC in the future.

Turns out EDH was the hero we deserved all along.

Make no mistake. Sheldon and the rest of the RC are on a tight leash from Wizards. Anything he does is simply running damage control pre-approved by Wizards. Thats why he's flipped from "we'll allow it" to "we are thinking about it", because the reddit backlash has been more than expected and hes in communications with WotC to see if they can ban it as a show of faith to the community, thus further strengthening EDHcucks love for their format.

The Omnath deck basically functions as a combo deck but to a ridiculous extent of it where no matter what, if you're not ready to remove every single piece i play, counter all things i cast or kill me before t4 you're going to lose. I think to this point it might be the most ridiculous value engine i've ever played with. It's to the point i can throw in ridiculous obvious Timmy cards like the new minotaur legend Moraug and Ashaya for infinite combat steps just to win off of 8 combat steps of attacking with lotus cobra and dryad on t5. It's stupid and this is in standard.

Can't wait to see what you can cook up in real formats with fetches and stuff. If it's a t0 deck playing Evolving Wilds in standard it must be worse in older formats.

the WURG lets you play another copy of Omnath, which lets you do it all over again. on top of that, as others have pointed out, it's not just Omnath, it's also Lotus Cobra (who i'd consider the Mox Opal and Arcum's Asstrolabe of landfall decks) printing ludicrous amounts of mana for every fetch you play and crack (and boy can you crack a lot of them thanks to Omnath's first per turn trigger)
and "go through the entire deck" is an overstatement, Omnath's third trigger would kill long before you'd get there, even a landless dredge list with 4x creeping chills will die fast under the pressure of a big beater with a Lightning Helix Ritual++ attached to it

Can I get some opinions on this list? I strongly feel like its missing some kind of card draw to make sure I keep the mana coming and eventually draw into tooth and nail to do the lab maniac / leveler meme and win.

Apologies, I am doing a bunch of shit so slow to write, but in short
>Your ramp SUCKS (you don't need permanent ramp, you win on the spot if you resolve a tooth and nail)
>Your finding engines SUCK (4CMC is too slow)
>You have zero (0) defenses
>You aim to have 9 mana during 1 turn and you win instantly
>Your alternate plan isn't really an alternate plan, it is a worse version of your main plan
>You have a 2/2 split of leveler and inverter, inverter is a functionally worse version of leveler why have this split at all instead of 4/2, but even then you only really need 2 copies you'll rarely draw both
I'll write a few alternatives, but probably you'll want to aim for a ramp along the lines of twiddle/uro/gay driad/etc... just have tooth and nail as either value engine or just a random "I guess I win now lol" option or just have the ability to generate an absolute SHITload of mana.
Note that your combo is costed at 5+2 and 2 cards (Costed total of 5UU) or 7+2 (Costed total of 7GG).
I think a Twiddle base would fit pretty well here, since you don't need to storm just ramp to 7 or 9 mana and win, which twiddle does very easily.

Basically.
You go through your deck, generate unga/10 mana and just drop the kill combo.
Really you're just playing a belcher-like combo, you generate N-mana and then win instantly, your ramp currently isn't very conductive to this, specially with how wack current rap is, either you go full on rituals, twiddle, etc... ie fast mana for 1 turn or you build a ramp base (Uro, gay driad, etc...) and set tooth and nail as a value engine with the possibility of also randomly killing people, during G1-2 you side it out if they bring hate and instead just play a """""""""""""fair""""""""""" ramp/midrange deck.

Anyhow, a prime-time base can be fun if you like transformation sideboards.
4x Dryads, 4x uros, 4xGrazer, 4xTitan, the works, then have x4 tooth and nail and you either win via cheating in shitload of big crap (Titans) or just kill them on the spot, game 2 you shift into an uropile by removing your combo pieces and putting normal things.

play a different TCG
play a board game that uses cards (either drafting them like 7 Wonders or Its a Wonderful World, adding them to a deck on the fly like Dominion or Star Realms, or doing something in-between)
if you have tabletop sim i could walk you through one of the above games, or Millennium Blades the TCG simulator card game, it's pretty good and the next big expansion got funded a few weeks ago with nice changes to balance the game out.

Yeah it is pretty good. Can take a bit of time to learn, but once you've got it and get in "the zone", hoo boy is it a fun game.
The gameplay is actually pretty simple, reminds me of Galaxy Trucker: first you build your deck from random cards you buy, and things other players toss away, then after building for a time limit you pilot your deck hopefully to victory, then you go and do it all over again two more times. Really captures the "cracking boosters and building decks out of chaff" feel of TCGs without being a TCG itself.
And the references on cards are actually nice unlike current WotC schlock, from set names to cards included, to extra layers of reference/joke in the flavor text. Obvious "sponsored crossover" references are kinda ham-fisted but all others nail it pretty good. I'd post some, but this is a Magic thread, not a boardgames thread.

Economies of scale. Production and distribution get cheaper per unit as you increase in scale. Especially if you have developed relationships with people along the way.

Starting up a TCG means doing a large amount of design and art work before you sell a single card. Then you have to pay more for your initial production run. Then you have to find people to sell it.

This is were you hit the real killer: The TCG buisness model opposes investment in multiple games. If I play both magic, Force of will, and keyforge, I will have less money invested in each game then if I spent it on one game. Further, events tend to provide for one game at a time. So your new game has to somehow win over heavily invested fans of existing games.

Then you run into the fact the TCG market is MASSIVELY oversaturated. Relative to the number really making big money, you have dozens of smaller games. Most of which are on some level of dead.

Magic has the infrastructure, the player network, and the market awareness that it can't really be beaten by a superior product. I don't honestly think it can be beaten at this point, without active sabotage.
