If he is correct, it will be crazy.

ENEMY FETCH LANDS IN ZENDIKAR!?!?!?

Insane... why would wizards do this? Fetchlands are overpowered and make me have to shuffle too much...

Its true

I really thought this extended season i would not have to shuffle and cut every turn... it gets really annoying. Imagine a 9 round tourney with a top 8, if you made the finals you probable spent over an hour shuffling and waiting for shuffling... at least an hour.
And the wear and tear you put on cards, even if they are in sleeves, it has an affect over time...

On the plus side, i don't feel bad about sell all my old fetch lands, because you can always mess with your mana base and just use these news one now. They should be cheaper then the old ones are these days.

Anyone wanna join me in my lawsuit against Wizards for Carpal Tunnel? All this shuffling and tapping has put a hindering on my ability to pleasure myself to internet porn. This way maybe I could afford to play paper Magic as well as afford to live. And deodorant.

wrong.
Players wanted them, exactly as the new rules and the 4 Blocks a year and the Mythic rarity. Donīt be a fool please, money can turn worthless from today to tomorrow.

Hah, either you are a fool or are being fooled. Probrably both.

They dumbed down the game to make it easier for new players to comprehend, thus resulting in more new players because they could easily grasp the game without thinking too hard. 4 blocks a year was THEIR idea. Go find the article back when Llorwyn was released about how they wanted to start releasing more sets a year. And mythic rarity is just another ploy to sell more packs. If you can't see all of this is just ways to make more money, you need to open your eyes.

BUUUUUUUUURN!

lol, you got me.


I'm serious about the lawsuit though. Either they will pay a large lump sum or start making lands with some sort of Vigilance.

Carpal Tunnel Mountian
Land - Arthritic Mountian
A deck may contain any number of Carpal Tunnel Mountain.
0: Add R to your mana pool. You cannot play this ability again until your next turn.

You could just go back to Richard Garfield's original method of representing tapped cards by putting beads on them and then taking them off when you untap. Of course, this might get confused with +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters, so all creatures that get counters will now be represented by a 90-degree turn per counter.

Anyone else think wizards is getting a bit to greedy and forgetting about the people who made the game a sucess in the first place.

If I were WotC, i'd be much more greedy. :/

WotC printing great cards makes us want to play magic. Its good that way.!

People hate when they open "crap" rares, but if Wizards prints "good" rares, its a money grab... What are they supposed to do? Print mediocre cards that are just good enough?

I hate how everything that WotC does nowadays is a money grab. Change rules to be more intuitive? Money grab. Print more interesting cards? Money grab. Print cards people want? Money grab.

They have been printing 4 sets a year since forever. The last year NOT to have 4 sets released was 2002!!

Think about that.

Actually I've changed my mind about the duals I was thinking in a standard head set where Im looking forward to a format with more restrictive mana bases. However its really good news for drafters which is pretty much all I do as fetches and duals make drafts so much more +EV MED3 has been a total money pot for me with plateau, bayou, volcanic island, tropical island, scrubland, mana drain and bazaar of baghdad really improved my EV but I still think it sucks from a standard view point I'd like to see a format with a little more colour restrictions.
