    HOLY
    FUCKING

    Aaron Forsythe just joined the Pro Tour Webcast to announce "Modern Masters" a product targeted at Modern players.

    A short run booster pack set of cards from 8th Edition to Alara Reborn. 229 card set. 15 mythics, 53 rares, 60 Uncommons, 101 Commons.

    Some cards shift rarity for various reasons.

    Developed with draft in mind by Lead Developer Erik Lauer. You can draft "Storm vs. Faeries vs. Dredge"!

    $6.99 MSRP per pack

    24 packs per box.

    No basic lands. Instead of land you get a foil.

    Release June 7th, 2013.

    Available in English only, but distributed worldwide.

    Contains no cards currently on the Modern ban list.

    There will be 1 Modern Masters Limited Grand Prix next year.

    20 to 30 cards with new art. Some of the Tokens are appearing in paper for the first time.

    First Preview Card:

    Tarmogoyf at Mythic with new art and modern card frame.

    HOLY
    FUCKING
    SHIT
    The thing I have been wanting the MOST, I always expected a FTV: Modern, but this...this is the most glorious thing ever

    so the tarmogoyf is just the lhurgoyf but for less mana

    poor lhurgoyf

    there's no reason to play it except for it having the world's best flavor text

    oh wait no I misread lhurgoyf's effect

    that is a great sentence up there

    does "lhurgoyf" sound vaguely lovecraftian to anyone else

    I am pretty sure my cats invoke the dread lhurgoyf when they need to regurgitate a hairball

  • FrankoFranko Sometimes I really wish I had four feet so I could dance with myself to the drumbeat Registered User regular
    Lhurgoyf is an all color creature type used for cards that depict large, reptilian creatures, with distinctive elongated limbs and large, toothed mouths. Lhurgoyf are primarily scavengers. They come in a wide variety of shapes depending on their scavenged sustenance of choice.

    I am mostly joking. The price would, theoretically, go down now except this will probably have 0 effect on the price of goyfs. That pack price + the number of packs per box and fact that it's a limited run means there won't be enough goyfs in the entire run to make a dent on demand. Zoo is too good a deck.

    I really doubt it'll fall below $95. There aren't enough goyfs to go around at modern tournaments as is (because fuckers like me got 2 in a single box! HA!)

    The supply it creates will likely be mitigated by a bunch of new people getting into Modern. Thus the format will get more popular and no one's collections will crash in value. Pretty much a win-win for Wizards.

    that new goyf art and flavor text is pretty rad actually. this whole thing could be really cool.

    also it feels really good to win a jace in a prize pack won off a 5$ modern tournament with a deck you could make on a middle school kid's lunch money

    My red/black deck is coming together...but I guess I'll take the lobbers out for something else.

    I have played about six or seven friendlies and five of them were against DELAY THE FUCK OUT OF THE GAME B/W MIRACLES decks.

    You said it, drp. The old art is way way better.

    I've heard they're going to do a Grand Prix with this "set." Going to that for sure.

    What are good ways for black and red to get card advantage in standard?

    Kill the other player so fast they can't believe it, then while they're stunned, steal their cards.

    Black is card advantage at the cost health

  • FrankoFranko Sometimes I really wish I had four feet so I could dance with myself to the drumbeat Registered User regular
    This Modern Masters set has apparently also been designed to have drafting in mind
    so my hope is that even though it is a limited run, if they are selling it with a drafting aspect in mind it won't be TOO limited and will at least see a couple print runs
    enough for me to buy a couple boxes and make a pool of modern staples for which can rock the house with

    I see modern staple prices falling, but not too much for the real beater cards
    but hopefully commons and uncommons like Path to Exile and Kitchen Finks are reprinted and see a huge price drop because 5 and 8 bucks respectively for those cards is absolute garbage pricing

    I prefer Tarmogoyf's old what-the-fuck-even-is-that-thing artwork.

  • FrankoFranko Sometimes I really wish I had four feet so I could dance with myself to the drumbeat Registered User regular
    I didn't get it till I saw the full art
    Tarmogoyf.jpg
    it is a big monster with a bottom about to eat a dood
    the most confusing part is the giant ant like pincers or bottom double beak
    also it always looked to me like his back was a bit blurry and was in high speed motion, yet the rest of his body doesn't allude to this, his white stripes look like speed lines to me

    I actually kind of hope that, one day, the Futureshifted card designs become the "Modern" card designs.

    They are pretty slick.

    I don't like them all that much
    but I do like mana cost symbols on the left
    so you can fan out your hand
    and see all the costs without the cards overlapping

  • drp527drp527 We sacrifice our own That more may rise in their placeRegistered User regular
    I dunno if I'd like them to be used on everything

    but I did really enjoy them and think they should get used again

    I actually didn't like them for that reason. I learned magic at an early enough age that I hadn't really played any playing card games like poker, so when I would fan my hand of magic cards I would do it so I could see all the mana costs. Took me years and years to realize I was essentially doing it backwards from everyone else but at that point it was too ingrained so now I get annoyed when I play poker.

    I have played about six or seven friendlies and five of them were against DELAY THE FUCK OUT OF THE GAME B/W MIRACLES decks.

    lobbers are good in a br deck though

    if they have something out you can block

    if not you can tap for damage

    Someone on my facebook called the Modern Masters a shameless cashgrab.

    I have no idea how to respond.

    A company is attempting to earn money?

    Scandalous.

    How dare they produce a product to support a format that people were complaining about the lack of support for?!

    HOW DARE THEY PRODUCE THIS ENTIRELY OPTIONAL AND ESSENTIALLY FRIVOLOUS GAME?!
