I unsubbed from this channel several months ago because I didn't know why I was spending so much time listening to a guy talking about a game that I never play. Since then I have watched almost every upload anyways because I cannot not click when youtube suggests it.

Playing is unimportant. The important thing is to buy reserved list. 📈

My fiancé and I watch him, and neither one of us play this TCG either. I did buy some sealed Battlebond boxes after that set came out because I thought the concept was unique. Rudy has done me some good.

WOTC, “we need to rip people off while making dudes who can’t get laid feel hella cool and spend money so we can go get laid.”
Eric Weis (8 days ago)
Agreed. LOL. Just look at the value of imperial seal plummet after Wizards reprinted it! However I think that overall wizards is doing a service to the game with the masterpiece and lottery cards
Aleks T (8 days ago)
When BFZ was released and had Expeditions, it was opened so much and the market was so saturated with BFZ cards, that only 2 cards at mythic level in the entire set was worth more than the pack. In terms of money, 97% of the rares and mythics were bulk because of the lottery cards.
iDATUS (8 days ago)
I don't think your right on this, theres only so many times people buy these before people get bored or they loose so much value. I think you said this in the past

Couldn't your same argument be used for reprinting reserve list cards? (Assuming greedy investors wouldn't sue WOTC for doing it?...which they probably would)
bob dole (9 days ago)
speaking of altered art cards... the japanese planeswalkers. A very unique figure to see, that they wouldn't be able to accurately identify otherwise, is how many people are buying specifically for the altered arts. The prices of these cards may also reflect the general perspective of the want for these cards.
Adam Haas (9 days ago)
Rack that focus!
The Conspiratorist (9 days ago)
Serial numbered cards are nothing new; Upper Deck does it all the time. When it comes to sports cards, serial numbered cards can be a better investment than buying a brand-new, sealed box. I won’t say it will be exactly the same for MTG, but it would definitely move more product with the inclusion of such cards.
golddragon1123 (9 days ago)
If they add numbered cards, I think a desolate lighthouse rookie card numbered /69 is going to be $50000 if it gets a PSA 11

The masterpieces are now sold by WotC directly on eBay in the form of Mythic Edition...
Dustin Forman (9 days ago)
It was stated by wizards when they cancelled the masterpiece line that they will return for certain, but only when the set/story/"last quarter was down" warrants it. I swear, WotC are like gold fish when it comes to the law of diminishing returns.

The thing is lottery cards would of been great if it was a small pool of 6, or 12 cards everyset, less is more
Matthew Szerlag (9 days ago)
The flashy cards are pointless. Outside of the reserve list, whose values are assigned by rarity, the value in modern cards comes through their usefulness in competitive games and pro tour decks.
Ruecian (9 days ago)
I started feeling the dilution the moment I saw the list of UM box-toppers. Only the 4th time they made masterpieces and already I think four cards that had already been masterpieces. Unique borders and art can have an effect, but often times people want a masterpiece because it's the most premium version. once there's more than one of that, people might stop caring. If they go back to lottery cards maybe they could do no more than 10 different cards a set so as not to exhaust the pool of good stuff and make feel-bads when somebody gets a tango land, or a lavaclaw reaches.

Invest in Lady Sun... okay this was a joke and then I decided I should look up it's price and I guess I am a genius... Lady Sun Lottery Card ever? Tell people to buy Lady Sun...

Lottery cards will be back in the core sets is my guess.
Matthew Bryant (9 days ago)
Pauper is only fun if you pretend you are actually a Wizard and actually summoning spells and don't really care who wins or loses the game. Been in this game since I was 10.
Matthew Bryant (9 days ago)
I have never gotten a lottery card; I got a masterpiece and thought it was a lottery card but I scratched off off the foil and there was no lottery number... no clue how to tell if you win if those are the lottery cards.
Andrew Shelton (9 days ago)
Use to play the Full Metal Alchemist Card game and inserted into packs of a couple of those sets were rare cards signed by the voice actor of that character and there were only like 10 of each of them made. I don’t know if wizards could do something like that maybe signed by the artist or by Mark Rosewater that would be interesting.
Jaden Emrich (10 days ago)
Here's Rudy dropping the hard truths Timmy's need to hear. I may not always like hearing what you have to say, but man do you make too much sense to ignore.
JetEyeNight (10 days ago)
New players don't want or care about old school magic. New players nostalgia in 10-15 years will be the lottery cards. Just as old school is nostalgic to you, and why you value it, it's the same thing for today's lottery cards and new players of today. Old school magic doesn't hold value to new players. This is why lottery cards are investable. Kids who want them today but can't afford them will be the adults in 20 years who can. Just like you said the other day, real investment growth is made long term, not just flipping tomorrow what we buy today.

rudy how much thought do you put in to your subtle backgrounds... titles of books and comics etc... I LIKE to think a lot each post but hey maybe its just the den hahaha love your posts man
dragonmares59110 (10 days ago)
I will be honest, i would rather have this than ultra rare cards. Specials edition of cards still let their normal edition be available to players and players should be the main focus of wizards. I am have nothing against people investing but only if it don't hurt the players community and a game too expensive is hurting it. I can't count the number of children and adult who stopped playing and never tried because the game is so god damn expensive to get into and stay into !

The new formula is going to have most packs contain only reach arounds and rudys brother..the lottery cards will just be paths and bolts.

Luxury versions as art is good for everybody. You can play the game for cheaper and have pretty skins for your cards if you want.

I believe Wotc said they would bring the lottery cards back. They said it wouldn't be a regular thing, but they would put them in when they felt appropriate.

Lottery versions of EDH Commanders, That is what I am calling.
Chris Thorn (10 days ago)
We've seen Wizards strike out for the 3rd time with the "Mythic Timmy Edition" so clearly those are not the best way to put these special alternate art out into the market
Slaλer (10 days ago)
You can’t use up reprint equity if you never print anything. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They should just do alternate art cards like what they did with Kaya and the Kennerith Twins

LaserPenguinGames (10 days ago)
My favorite is them selling MTG arena alternate art/ 3d foils that will just roll out of standard and not be legal anymore. You never own anything its just pixels that are gone....it's a sweet scam they are running unlike that 12 pack of tacos Rudy picked up for dinner lol.
Jesse Rafters (10 days ago)

I hope to God they don't go to serial numbered cards. I collect sports cards too and "making rainbows" is one of my biggest weaknesses. Dammit Rudy, why'd you start that cog moving in wotc's mind???
chris guest (10 days ago)
the new players..."the timmies" of the world XD imo the mythic boxes need to die they are a waste of $$ not to mention its super unfair to most ppl as they made them super limited to get back to loto cards or if they want to do the alternative art they need to slip them into the base boxes to make it fair to all and still make they a good bit of bank
Lakanna (10 days ago)
Masterpieces are a great way to drive sales without destroying reprint equity. It also gives the MTGFinance folks another thing to chase. It really does allow the best of both worlds: the players get the normal, non-foil versions to play with while the investors have their high-value cardboard they can inflate to whatever levels they believe is appropriate. It's still the Shivan Dragon situation: If you just want a Shivan Dragon to play, you can get one cheap. If you want an ALPHA Shivan Dragon? Not gonna be cheap by any means.
Chaznat Vandagriff (10 days ago)
Rudy! They should make a tri-bundle 3 packs all foil packs. Then sell msrp for 30$ just like shards of alara .. Easy millions

The mythic edition was a PR disaster. They should at least offer better ways of purchasing options for speciality sets. More unique card borders for box topper, lottery mythic edition cards. Hell, have special foil lands a la unstable once in a while.

Elijah Vanaver (10 days ago)
Thank you for explaining exactly why lottery cards are a bad investment. This is a great video. I bought a foil History of Benalia at $30, because I thought it would go to $50. I was wrong. Now I can get them at like $14 each. I still think they're cool and am looking to buy more at buylist prices (currently $8), but wow that's a big hit from $30. I agree with Rudy. Careful investing in shiny new products. Just 'cause it looks good doesn't mean it's a good investment.

Angelos Koromilis (10 days ago)
I mean Masterpieces as a concept are a solid idea. Inserting random, alternate art versions allows the average Joe (aka me) to play the game at a cheaper price (since more boxes get opened in hunting the Masterpiece cards), and collectrors get their fix. However, Mythic editions are a fiasco, i wholeheartedly hope this last one makes them drop the idea alltogether.

WOTC can’t possibly keep up this level of product releases, reprint levels, new secondary card sets, then double up to play Arena etc. without severe unforeseen downturn in the secondary market when the confidence come pouring out in pricing. 90’s comic crash is still on the way...

Cards that have the potential to be worth more than the cost of a box will make a return? You’re trying to tell me that they help booster sales? NEVER!!!
Ordinary Psaecho (10 days ago)
how many times does he have to say it? buy the new stuff, !!in moderation!!, don't go ham on it. make your profit off it, however you can/want. revert it back in to capital, then invest that profit into reserved list cards and throw them in a time capsule and bury it under your grandma's basement. then eat a taco. i still see people grading new planeswalkers, and lottery cards like a bunch of dingle-berries. STOP! rip money from the new(preferably sealed product) and convert it all backwards into the Real investment cards. there are reserved list cards to invest in, in every price range. seriously. from 15 cents and up. just pick a handful of RL cards you think are worth more than they are currently selling for put 'em on a dart board and throw a dart then buy that card. i bought roughly 200 Marton Stromgald's from ice age 4-6 years ago for 14 cents a pop they are all $3.31 a piece now. that puts my profits on the 14 cent card at over 600$ - ebayfees today. off a ton of small 14 cent investments i made years ago that never set me back any money, and they are still climbing in price. *que the "just do it" meme*
