We now have all the cards in the sough-after product:
Normal-sized FOIL cards:
1) Chaos Warp
Nice utility and randomness all in one. Monored EDH decks rejoice as they can now finally have a FOIL version of this cool card!
2) Command Tower
A more affordable way to now have your own FOIL Command Tower. However, due to the limited availability of this product..affordable might not be the right word.
3) Decree of Pain
Cool huh? It was never really a ‘money’ card until recently and even at that. I remember playing this in Legacy as a counter to Decree of Justice. Cycle it…making it uncouterable and killing all the peasky 1/1 tokens. Of course, if you wanted t kill the Angel tokens it was so much sweeter!
A great EDH card. Sort of like a Commandeer but sometimes better as it can simply counter something at worst.
5) Diaochan, Artful Beauty
Ah! Good times! It was kind of fun playing this in EDH knowing it was a somewhat rare and unique inclusion. Putting a Lightning Greaves on it made it sooo good. A veritable Avatar of Woe in Red at half the cost.
Now even more players will be able to experience it’s awesomeness in a color that has long been the underdog in EDH.
6) Dragonlair Spider
Well, they sometimes print a few oddball cards. It’s allright, I guess.
A definitive EDH staple. Colorless Removal at its finest. New art to boot! WOOT WOOT!
8) Eric, Spymaster of Trest
Another Commander reprint! This one is a lot more playable and sometimes makes the cut in some more fringe Legacy decks. Great in multiplayer as well. Others will get to draw cards if they attack someone other than you. Pretty cool for redirecting aggro from yourself onto others. Of course, you can play some unblockable dudes and draw free cards as well.
9) Kaalia of the Vast
Another Commander FOIL reprint as well. This one is probably the most popular of the commanders as it makes for very interesting deckbuilding. Dragons, Demons and Angels! Oh my!
10) Loyal Retainers
Hm….definitely great if you never owned one. As a collector though, I must admit I am rather steamed.
On the plus side, this is a really limited product and I don’t expect the original value to drop much.
11) Maelstrom Wanderer
I must admit, it’s pretty Sweet!
I am a big fan of randomness in multiplayer games and this guy is basically a boosted Enigma Sphinx. Lots of fun to be had with this guy. As a commander, yyou can cast him, pop the board, draw cards, then he hits play and attacks. (Cascade into Devastation and Tidings for example)
12) Mind’s Eye
This was getting tough to find in regular trades. People were definitely hoarding this thing. Probably the reprint I can most appreciate.
13) Mirrari’s Wake
Lookin’ good! Everyone wants this card. From the casuals to the EDH pros. It’s probably one of the best selling cards of all time.
14) Rhystic Study
Power common of commons! I remember how common these were when I started playing. People would randomly play them sometimes. For a common, it’s not very common to see anybody trading these. Eventhough, it is probably one of the most annoying EDH cards, I’m glad to have to see it in this Collector’s box.
15) Scroll Rack
The sometimes ‘Super Sensei’s Divining Top‘ is very much at home in this box. Having gone up to 30$ and being mostly an EDH card made it somewhat hard to acquire.
Interestingly enough, Land Tax, the card that made Scroll Rack escalate is not in this box. Also, nothing super broken has been done with it in the Legacy format….thus far.
16) Sylvan Library
The one we all knew about!
It changes little to the fact that this is one of the coolest reprints since…when…whenever.
Serves as a mini-Sensei’s before you draw and gives you extra cards when you’re greedy. Or in EDH, since you start at 40 life, pretty much almost always.
Also a great way to ‘pimp out’ your Maverick Legacy deck.
17) The Mimeoplasm
A nice little Clone variant. FOIL reprint of this scores many casual points. Er…I mean…casual FOIL points. No wait, FOIL casual FOIL points!
18) Vela the Night-Clad
They can’t all be awesome…
1) Azusa, Lost but Seeking
2) Brion Stoutarm
3) Glissa, the Traitor
4) Godo, Bandit Warlord
5) Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
6) Karn, Silver Golem
7) Sliver Queen
8) Zur the Enchanter
