No one needs these to play anything. They are not legal game pieces. That is my entire point.
These are purely intended as a high end collectible for people who value that scarcity and exclusivity.
If you want proxies just use a printer and get a Lotus for pennies.
I’m actually going through and reading some of the replies and quote tweets now and wow do people read things in the most uncharitable possible way that has no relation to what I’m actually saying here.
Like holy sh*t I’m not saying this isn’t expensive. That’s the point of it.
Okay this may be the most insane BG squad I've ever had.
Now it’s trash talking him from the tree
Oko *almost* got the squirrel
I will offer one final hot take on Magic products this morning. The product line that sucks is Modern Horizons, because it not only ruined the nostalgia of the format by power creeping all the sweet old decks out, but had *actual game pieces* in packs priced artificially high.
Anyway I’m done talking about this today. Feel free to rage into the void but I’m not replying anymore (unless you annoy me enough)
People said the ticket costs for Magic30 were outrageous and it sold out pretty much instantly. Maybe the Twitterverse’s calibration as to what the correct price point is for things is a little off.
I also think that in five years, many of the people complaining about it today are going to wish they’d bought it.
I think this 30th anniversary edition is the exact kind of thing WotC *should* make. It doesn’t gatekeep actual game pieces from people behind high prices and allows them to target collectors directly, like with Secret Lairs. I’d much rather this than even more sets all the time.
Ellie always looks both adorable and like she just woke up from a three day bender.
This week’s #HouseOfTheDragonHBO felt like some real @GameOfThrones sh*t
