When I think "power" my mind doesn't usually go to creatures, not fatties at least. There are some old white border/jank gold cards I'd like to see reprinted, but I'm not holding my breath.

So, "Casual Legacy Masters" without any of the baggage that attaching the term Legacy means. Nostalgia and casual staples expected (wanted or not) I can only hope they use this rare opportunity to give us some Snow Lands! (they won't)

I just really hope that they don't throw "once upon a time this was the s#it, but is now a bulk, garbage rare" cards like Shivan Dragon in there. Nothing's going to be worse than drawing an overprinted rare that should be an uncommon at this point (worth a whopping $0.09 at the lowest Near Mint) out of a $9.99 pack.

The problem with this product is that if the cards in the decks don't warrant the price tag per pack, it's not going to do well. The cost is prohibitive to most of the intended, casual audience that could potentially buy some of the cards outright to guarantee they get what they want or even get it and more for their money. I'm hesitantly optimistic, but am leaning more towards this is going to be ugly with the amount of reprints some of the most "iconic" cards have gotten.

Agreed. Many of the game's most iconic cards are those that have been reprinted into oblivion already. Stuff like Shivan, Serra Angel, and even cards like Necropotence have had multiple printings at this point. The 9.99 price point seems way too high right now, although I guess we'll see when spoiler season begins.

Iconic definitely means different things to different crowds. The kids in my class who play look at things like Eldrazi and Planeswalkers as iconic.

I'm not excited for this at all.

Let's see what's in it.

*cautiously optimistic*

I mean, it wouldn't be worth any money, but I want a foil Douglas Shuler Serra Angel, damnit.

Anyone else hear rumors that they weren't going to do any spoilers for this set? They wanted it to be like the old days where the sets were brand new on release.

I suppose there will be spoilers, just before the set release as usual.
The thing though is that there will be a prerelease tournament at HasCon, two months before (then without players knowing the contents of the set).

Not a rumor, it is right in the announcement article. The spoilers will happen from people opening the packs two months early at HASCON.
