Many Magic: The Gathering players are asking questions about the Ultimate Guard Stack'n'Safe I used for putting my Guild Kit battle box together in this video. See my original review on the item here: Both. Here is my review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uciXA2tQ-Gw and know that it is in stock at my affiliate link via www.cardkingdom.com/TCC

Question: Where could I get that deck box shown towards the end of the video? That looks super handy and I kinda want to put together a guild battle box for each guild when (I assume) they release the guild kits for the next set (Rakdos, Azorius, Gruul, Simic, and Orzhov)

Sure do! Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlmkijO1F0s

I think you put the color saturation on this video a bit too high at the start with the deck boxes.

I snagged the Dimir kit and a 2019 deck builders kit to build my first causual commander deck. I ended up pulling a nicol bolas the ravager from one of the boosters and cant decide if I want to base my deck around him or keep the dimir theme.

the dimir deck milled my 99 card library. (I was using my commander deck). It's waaayy to powerful.

Izzet Worth It ?
StarMango (10 days ago)
My wife and I bought the guild kits and have been pitting them against each other every night. Each matchup has been a fun and interesting (and typically long but engaging) game, with each deck being able to come back from a near-loss or create interesting combinations. Definitely have to agree with the prof here, the guild kits were a fantastic buy, and we're going to use them as a battle box because they're so much fun.
StarMango (7 days ago)
More or less, in my opinion yeah, the decks are fairly balanced. I think the one-sided games we’ve had have usually been due to bad luck rather than a bad deck.
Idee vee (7 days ago)
+StarMango so just as tolarian says, its balanced?
StarMango (7 days ago)
We’ve only played two matches of Izzet vs Selesnya so far, one win each. For the most part, what I like about the decks is that a lot of them have “answers” for threats the other decks might have. For instance, if Selesnya makes a bunch of 1/1 tokens, the Izzet deck has a number of spells that deal 1 damage to multiple targets, but Selesnya could play privileged position to protect from targeted spells, but Izzet could play izzet charm to counter PP when it’s cast, etc. I prefer Selesnya, while my wife likes the Izzet deck. I wish the Izzet deck had a little more variety in spells, but I think they wanted to keep the guild kits on theme, rather than just “how good can we make red blue?”. We’re going to give the decks a shot in a 4 person free for all, which would probably help them interact better. Some of the games can become one sided if the other player doesn’t draw any answers.
Idee vee (7 days ago)
Is izzet vs selesnya balanced?
Rumia (10 days ago)
Are these decks good for beginners at all? They look really nifty. :P Izzet looks really cool as well, but the Selesnya deck's art look beautiful!
Brian Noone (10 days ago)
I got all 5 for sale last week for !!!!!$89.99!!!!! It may just seem like 2 dollars off per deck but after seeing your video Prof., I cannot be happier. Value value value! I cannot wait to play with these awesome precons
Judas Preest (12 days ago)
This product has gotten me back into paper magic, it has been a very long time (11yrs) that I last played paper magic. I mostly play MTGO because I had no real faith in any of the preconstructed decks, and the decks I brew in MTGO are loads cheaper. That being said I might actually get back into the whole hobby as a body and perhaps build one of the decks IRL from MTGO.

Sees such a great price in the vid but discovers that your local game store loves money and so charges each kit at 30 dollars...

Speetlebeetle (15 days ago)
Tolsmir sees no commander play and new Tristan I is literally trash, especially when compared to Angel of Invention and a Homewatd Path. Now the Privileged Position is sitting around $12 for this printing of it. So it’s not worth it for the box.

vicnedel02 (16 days ago)
Infinite combos and net decking ruined mtg for me. I don't go to my local gamestore to play anymore. It takes all the fun out of the game when you realize your opponents commander decks cost them upwards of 300 dollars, each card belonging on some "best build" list or costing a fortune. If it wasn't for that, I'd probably buy one of these decks.

+Tolarian Community College Fair! I'm just picking fun <3 Love the video! This video helped convince me to buy the full set, and now I'm excited for the next 5 (assuming they make them in the next set, which I don't see why they wouldn't)
Referring to Deathrite Shaman is an inside joke among many Magic: The Gathering players. Yes, I screwed up on Tolsmir's name.

I actually used pieces of the selesnya deck to help build a Tolsimir Wolfblood Edh deck and I’ve gotta say I really enjoy it. I’ve bought 3 of these different decks and I don’t regret any of them.

I got into MTG right around when RAV came out, so I have sentimental feelings towards the guilds, especially Boros and Selesnya. I bought two each of the aforementioned guilds' kits and they are a blast to use on their own. I plan on buying at least two of each of all (hopefully) ten guilds' kits and if they remain at MSRP and available long enough, I will eventually get four of each so my group can have a fun and self-contained card pool we can all draft/build from forever. Four of each kit is enough quantity and variety for two decks each guild. That's TWENTY decks for about $800 or $40 each. Excellent value IF you can swing the VERY high cost. Easily worth it if you're into the Ravnica theme and casul play as much as we are. If the reprints were legal for either Modern or Standard, my head would've exploded. XD But these are still the best official WotC product available right now and any player will have an amazing time with two copies of any one of these guild kits for casual play. Plus the exclusive lands and swag are just even more added value and novelty.
yarrrthekraken (29 days ago)
Dude, I picked up a selesnya one and I love it. WotC hit this one out of the park

the problem with the product is that I have seen stores not selling their product and instead breaking them down for singles worth. there may have been too much value in the box.

when is release for this.. and what about Golgari and dimir
Gare (1 month ago)
Wow, these are... actually awesome. Too bad Selesnya and Dimir are out of stock at my LGS (and Selesnya costs more than the rest because I guess it's just that popular). Awesome kits though. I think I need one of each!

I don't know where to ask a question about my deck, so I'm posting it here. I am new and bought a Starter Decks Chandra(Bold) and Ral (GofRavnica) and was wondering if I could combine their deck into a water/fire deck. Is this ok/good for playing? (Note this is mostly for casual and some small in shop tournaments)

So when we look at t he worth, selesnya is the best thing, but in means of playability per card in modern, which one is the best choice?
Bear Incorporated (1 month ago)
12:48 Math Correction: There are 45 different match-up combinations with 10 guilds, not 20. Each guild can go against 9 other guilds, divide by 2 for duplicate match-ups and you get 45.

Funny story, I already have a Golgari Edh deck with Savra as its commander.. So yesterday I saw some of these at my lcs & picked up one of these & another Golgari 60 card themed deck with the intent to upgrade my current one.. Long story short, I was able to build a SECOND EDH with Karat as ITS commander!!🤣🤣
