What card from Eternal Masters are you most excited to add to your deck/collection? ...Not counting Mana Crypt. :lol:


The card I want to get most of all is probably Sneak Attack 8)

Karakas. I own everything else, so my excitement is in replacing ugly white border cards. I think that Karakas is the only new card I need.

And yes, I know it's banned. I want it for my EDH cube

Honestly? Argothian Enchantress, which I'd never quite been able to justify to myself for Selvala. There are plenty of great staples I was glad to get, or glad to get another of, but the Enchantress addressed a hole that had bothered me for at least 18 months.

Course, I'm still waiting on that Auriok Champion reprint... :)

Well, I used to have a playset of Sinkholes and I traded them off a few years ago, so I'd like to get another set of those.

I also have 3x Argothian Enchantress so I'm eager to acquire a fourth.

Beyond that I'm mostly interested in foils of cards like Toxic Deluge that weren't available or where very hard to get.

Pretty sure I already owned ever single normal card in Eternal Masters.
I was excited about the Serf and Carnivore tokens.
I don't like not having tokens for cards. The 5/5 Wall is also cool, but nobody plays Tidal Wave... well... ever. The 1/1 colorless spirits are also pretty cool, although they did previously exist in Player Reward form.

I also would like some previously unavailable foils. Worn Powerstone is the main one I want as soon as possible, but Control Magic, Gamble, Beetleback Chief, Tooth and Claw, Peregrine Drake, Baleful Strix, Ashnod's Alter, Unexpectedly Absent, Toxic Deluge, and Field of Souls are all cards I've played at one time or another.

Kind of the same here, I already own a lot of those cards. I think the single card I was excited the most about is the 1/1 Spirit token for Honden of Life's Web (I play all 5 Honden in my Cromat deck). Strangely, I opened one in my first booster and none in the remaining 23.

Then, there's Sneak Attack that I wanted for Marchesa but now that I have it, I'm not sure what to swap it with.

And the Sensei's Divining Top with Rob Alexander's art, it must be gorgeous in foil. I will probably never convince myself to acquire one though, considering my love-hate relationship with the card.

I know what I don't want...Prodigal Sorcerer. Tim art only (accept no substitutes).

I have been looking for a Shardless Agent (surprisingly costly and difficult) for my Rogue Tribal. Also, Ashnod's Altar and another Maze of Ith could be nice.

That's why I just make my own on MSE and print them on business card stock. Slightly smaller than real cards, but that actually works well on the battlefield. Also, I can choose when I want original art, or inspired replacements.

I'll take any of the EDH staples really.

But specifically, I'm looking to grab some foils of cards:
Mana Crypt (Cromat - non-foil to Reaper King)
Shardless Agent (Cromat - non-foil to Reaper King)
Baleful Strix (Reaper King)
Karmic Guide (Celestial Kirin)
Sensei's Divining Top (Cromat)
Swords to Plowshares (Celestial Kirin) - check

I like some of the new art:
Pyroblast (and to a lesser extent Hydroblast) - check
Vampiric, Enlightened, Mystical Tutors - check

Just to have:
Sneak Attack - check
Dack Fayden - check

But I really don't get the hype behind the new Force of Will art. I'm sure I'll get some flack for saying that, but to me iIt looks like a Mercadian Masques Brainstorm gone wrong.

I'll keep my 4x Alliance FoWs that I never play with (I really need to trade these for some of those foils I want).

I'm excited to get another Dack Fayden. EDH-playable 3-mana walkers are a scarce commodity.

Lots of stuff in foil, not necessarily rares/mythics: Blessing, Carrion Feeder etc.
