It's not the best but I love the aesthetic, kaladesh and aether revolt are probably some of my favorite sets in a while. Also especially because it isn't dog shit.

free spells always have been a problem ... and a lot of those are/were banned/restricted in their respective formats.

Plus you can get perfect information for free on the turn you are going to combo off, which is a problem.

If you want to have perfect information using IoK or Thoughtseize or similar, you would have to delay the combo by a turn. Which could slow down a format enough for other countermeasures.

My personal favorite was Zendikar because I like fucking around with allys. The inherent synergy makes for lots of fun with more customization options and less of the bullshit that plagued the slivers.

Pic related. My UB ally mill deck holds a special place in my heart. Halimar Excavator and Agadeem Occultist are bros for life.

You think?

She is selling for $80 right now? I sold my play set for $360 in booster boxes. I pulled two masterpieces that are alone worth $120.
>>
>>718768308
I'm there with you. Revised and fallen empires, it's when I got in and I could actually memorize every card. Now I'm fucked. Been out too long. Every time someone plays a card I gotta fucking read it.
>>
Legions and Onslaught were fun. Scourge ruined it, though. I'm an Akroma fan. Actually I'm an Angel fan. My collection is pretty epic.

Mirrodin was fun until Darksteel. Indestructible just made the game less fun. And don't get me started about the Clamp. Everyone is all up in arms about the Standard bans and how it's never happened before....Skullclamp broke Standard (and a lot of other formats) and it was banned soon after release.

Of the more modern sets, I really though zendikar was cool

Urza's Saga
because blue is the only color
>>
>>718771593
Uh....no. She goes for $100, and that's only because everyone is betting on her being reprinted in Modern Masters 2017. If she gets passed over again, she'll go back up to $120.

If they were in good condition, I'd have asked for 5 boxes.

Tempest, Urza's Saga, Lorwyn, Ravnica: City of Guilds, Avacyn Restored, Planar Chaos are a few favorites.

Least favorites include Prophecy, Homelands, the whole kamigawa block, Battle for Zendikar, Torment, Judgment, Legions, Alara Reborn

Their worst release to date is easily Chronicles. Very close to killing off the game entirely.

I like the recent block, the previous couple of years were not great for expansions.

Also, we need another Unglued.

Whatever. If you have a Lili, then I'd be more than happy to part with a box of Kaladesh. She's the second most sought after walker ever printed behind super jace. If she gets past over again for MM2017, then people are gonna hold their copies a little tighter.

The gratuitous use of indestructible and hexproof is unfortunate. Those mechanics are often in the EDH decks of the guy going all out to win casual games with friends.

Time spiral, and worldwake

It made me feel like revised again.

I always hated I missed unlimited, and I hated it more I had a MOX and ancestrial stolen from me in HS (they weren't super expensive by today's standards, but back then to a 15 ur old kid $100 was a lot.

And it pissed me off adults never took my "those cards are worth hundreds" seriously.....
>>
inistrad because I'm a fan of the story of it. it's the first block I started on. and I'm a vampire collector and it obviously had tons of those. I don't like what they did with eldritch moon but some good has come from it. can't wait to see what they do with sorrin.

Torment
color identity was so fucking down to the wire in that set.
madness, flashback, threshold & discard had an awesome dynamic and was pretty high level for that time

sadly, very few overpowered or even rare cards from that set, but a bomb to play

Wasn't a legitimate tornament per say, just a local group who wanted to play with whatever cards we had. But our group later banned it hahaha.

Not sure what you mean.

Black cards were twice as plentiful as each other color. It was basically the ONLY set that was completely off color-wise.

isochrone won't work, as it only accepts instants

But still shahrazad was fun when it was allowed in T1 ... Best Burn card ever :D.

However the "exile" zone rule changes made the deck unplayable. It was fun playing burning wish on the sharahzad of the main game which was still laying on the stack. Even for judges, the situations escalated quickly ruleswise

You realize that that's NOT how the pricing and trading of magic cards works, right? You can't bargain for magic cards like a fucking bazaar, the cards have strict set prices that any affiliates are FORCED to legally sell at. A card shop in my hometown got shut down because he was altering the price of certain cards and wizards took his ass to court and got hit business license revoked.
