Obviously I don’t want it to cost as much as it does, but like other Masters sets, those who do open it will lower singles prices.
Again, I am NOT happy about the price, but even if you don’t buy any sealed product, this will make cards more accessible as singles :)
+Medium Rare Musicians right? If it was affordable, maybe it would cause a ding in the pricing but at $10+ per pack (and you know that LGS are going to probably going to sell them for a lil bit more..)
WotC keeps talking about how they created these sets in order to promote eternal formats and give newer players the ability to get access to these cards but when they make it so expensive, it just makes Standard look like a "better" format to stick to..
EA doesn't even look good. Full art is great but this half thing looks stupid. This is an obvious cash grab from Wizards and should not be praised as far as I'm concerned.
If Wizards really wanted to lower the cost of cards they would make a bigger reprint at a lower price.
Funny. When the card shops price gouge people the players are silent. But when WOTC does it, it turns into a cardinal sin... you guys can't have it both ways. I think that magic is going to hell and it is as much the players fault as it is WOTCs. Standard singles for instance shouldn't be $50 on release and decent Modern decks shouldn't cost $500+. If the players would stop buying the overpriced crap the card shops and WOTC would have to get the point or go out of business and since most sane shop owners figure it is better to make a moderate profit then no profit at all, the prices would go down. TL;DR Stop wining about Wizards if you are not going to get mad at the Game Stores for doing the same thing.
Consumers have all the power when it comes to overpriced items like this. Choose common sense and don't spend a dime on stuff like this. Show Hasbro that we aren't mindless idiots who will buy anything they sell at any arbitrarily chosen pricetag they want to put on it. Let common sense prevail or they will continue to raise prices because we will still buy. This is why they are charging what they are and raking in millions.
There are ultimate box toppers on sale for ebay now and I everyone should be reporting anyone selling the box toppers alone on ebay due to 1. they are not to be for resale and 2. they are searchable, therefore a lottery grab that IS controlled by the seller.
I realy love your content an these reprints, but this product is just a complete rip off. You can also see trough the Box-Toper when ur using light - its just a giant scam!
I hope nobody is wasting his hard earned money for this product!
I could care less about any of the master pieces, I'd rather alter my own. Wish they wouldn't have done them to increase card pack prices again. I can barely afford a commander deck once a year and my few pauper decks.
Sorry, they hype for the Box Topper is ridiculous. They should have made them full art with a separate card with all the abilities for reference. These add a little more art - so what. When you first saw a Masterpiece it was impressive. These - eh.
A horribe product that's over priced and card quality is even more so. This wont be the last master set. There will be one by next year. Pass on this and only buy singles. Dont buy Into this garbage fire shit.
The Tarmogoyf artwork is crap as is the Tasigur. I wouldn't consider extended border cards as masterpieces. WOTC did a better job with the Zendikar Expeditions, Kaladesh Inventions and the Amon Khet Invocations.
These extended artwork cards seems like WOTC is trying to do minimal effort.
Increasing the supply through a $14 pack isn't going to help in the long run. They have explicitly also stated that the product is limited run.
Be excited about the reprints sure dude but holy hell this is not going to help the situation. This is not for players of the game, this is for kids who grew up, have a job and will hate every fuckin second of paying for this gouged out bs.
Here's the thing though. About 16-17 money rares have been revealed. Mythics are mythics - they won't be the bulk of your box/value. What if the rest of the rares are jank? Still excited for this set? I think they are giving us a week to go crazy and preorder before they reveal that this is exactly the case - 34 crap rares. I'm skeptical. Very skeptical.
This video ist just silly, the argument that a new set of sought after cards would make singles cheaper has been debunked with Modern Master and MM17. Anyone that opens a box like that and sells the singles will get its money back in by handing the higher price down to the buyer of the single card. The only way those cards would lower the price is if less people would buy them, which is exactally what I am doing and I can only encourage everyone not buy this garbage set.
As far as this video goes it is not thought through and seems like a WotC advertisement, sorry but this has no credibility.
What a segue... talking about how the man lands are gonna come down in price with the upcoming reprints, right into buy Creeping Tar Pit right now! You guys better go buy them up like Wedge says, so you can get hosed after Ultimate Masters drops. Way to go Wedge.
Please use your heads and don’t buy Creeping Tar Pit just yet. Your guys’ favorite magic youtuber is promoting a card with will be reprinted in the masters set and its value will drop from 15 dollars, especially since it will be a masterpiece. Why didn’t you tell your subs that Wedge? You wanted your friends at tcg player to make their money back before they card value drops?
I absolutely love the new art for Urborg. Lots of quality reprints here. The price is a little high but that said, the cards they included here are definitely a lot of requested favorites. I hope I can save the money for a box in time, that is my only concern.
The Guilds of Ravnica Mythic box had 8 guaranteed planeswalkers in them that when sold as singles more than paid for the $250 pricetag. The Ultimate Masters set is nearly $350 and one "masterpiece" per box and it could be Balefire dragon. WOTC is not getting my money!
I think the large amount of money ad playability in the set makes it viable, but the cost is too much for the average player. I also feel the lands balance that costs quite a bit. Overall I think I’ll buy a few packs, never a box, and buy a few topper cards that are cheaper like the witness or the finks.
Honestly to me, this video is a nice breath of fresh air after the several days of negativity I’ve been hearing regarding this set.
I love a lot of the masterpieces and new arts in the set, and hoping to grab some of the cards for Commander as singles the moment I see the price go down a bit.
When you open a masterpiece that 5 dollars or one of the crappy lands, rip it into confetti and mail it back to wizards with a letter telling how shitty their decisions to make that particular card a masterpiece. I’m gonna do it!
Fuck WotC and their money grubbing cash grab products. This set will not make cards cheaper or more accessible for the average player. You know damn well asshole resellers will buy up as much of this as they can and put it on ebay for $400-$500. It's quite clear Wotc doesn't give two shits about the players and only cares about the bottom line.
I can't see how you support this product...... It's a obvious cash grab. 11 days only to figure out if you want to buy it????? Ridiculous! Lets not care about the price, but how obviously close it is to the holidays and how "sudden" the announcement is to actual release this very predatory.
You're seriously complaining about opening 15 dollar cards?? You still get a foil and uncommons in your pack, asking all your rares to be 30 dollars is a little silly. Masterpieces always have 'duds' too, doesn't mean commander players aren't gonna go nuts over a cool lord of extinction. Seemed a lot more negative than usual, and not about the right stuff imo.
i like to buy 3 packs per set to get new random singles to hopefully use in EDH but recent sets along with the chase rares/mythics but recent sets have been all reprints of cards i alrdy have :( might have to skip this set if all the commons/uncommons are all reprints again
I just play MtG Arena, so... real cards are a thing of the past to me. It has been a pretty good simulation of how not having a secondary market that supports ridiculously expensive and older formats can make Magic fun again. Commander without all the older stuff would be fun as well, but they won't do that since they made Brawl. Oh well, no big deal. MtG has needed a reset, and the decision not to make anymore Masters sets seems fine to me. The newer generation of players moving forward are going to reap the rewards of choosing to leave the past behind and find a better way to play such a great game. Annihilator? Really?
Thanks for another excellent video. So far this set has a large number of the most needed reprints. There are a lot of cards that I need, but have not been able to afford, so hopefully this will bring a lot of these cards down in price for the singles.
