    I get that this is intended for draft, but man, there’s a lot of worthless rares spoiled so far. Seem pretty hard to justify the MRSP at this point, let alone the markup from LGS.

      I love this card and am super happy to see it, *but* I agree with you about price.
      It seems to me like these boosters start with MRSP too high. Especially if they intend people to draft for fun, not to make heir money back.

        You have to keep in mind that most Modern Masters drafts were tournaments with a high prize payout. There’s an entire Grand Prix devoted to Modern Masters 2015.

        You just have to find the right tournament and do well in it. Modern Masters and Modern Masters 2015 are essentially designed for high level limited play. Because of the high entry price point, MM and MM2015 require you to actually do well to make money back.

        It’s still a fun experience otherwise, though.

        Especially when you’re drafting MM and someone passes you a Tarmogoyf because the foil was a Tarmogoyf. That was entertaining. I gave that dude a hug.

        • Melissa Juice

          Oh, wow. That’s interesting. I suppose it makes sense.
          Sounds like a ton of fun.
          Thanks for the info.

      Modern Masters 2015 is not just intended for Draft. Unlike MM, MM 2015 was also created with Sealed in mind.

      But that’s why you play in MM events. You don’t just buy MM product because you’re almost never going to get your value back.

      Investing in a Modern Masters event if you think you can do well is one of the most rewarding experiences. You not only get to play in a fantastic limited format, but if you do well the prizes can be ridiculous.

      One of the MM events I attended even awarded a case of Modern Masters, most awarded a box or two. But it’s best to find a location where you can draft or play Sealed with MM 2015. Just ripping packs won’t be as fun.

      You’re forgetting about the cards that pay for 4+ packs by themselves. Packs were never meant to be worth your money, they’re a gamble, and generally worth about 75% of what you paid.

      • DJ Pad

        Keep in mind the cards that appear at this point as though they will pay for 4+ pack for themselves (ie.mythics and a few rares mainly) will likely drop in price ~30-50%.

        • Jonathan

          Maybe, maybe not. If the original Modern Masters taught us anything, it’s that this is not always the case. Card prices of power cards that were released in MM had an immediate fluctuation of -10/+5% (+40% for goyf), many of them had risen in value significantly over the course of six months to a year. MM brought new players into the field which increased demand.

    • Jonathan

      Based on what has been revealed so far and using SCG for a pricing baseline, the median value (good for appraising a single booster) of a booster is $11.41, which is higher than MSRP. The average value of a booster is $20.76 (heavily weighted by cards like Remand).

      Getting values above MSRP is unusual for standard boxes. From the persepective of pure value, MM2015 justifies its cost more than most sets.

    Crazy in limited.

  • Nanya

    Would this be good for a Kresh-devour deck?

    • Kameenook

      Oh yes, are you already running Mycoloth? Doubling Season? Primal Vigor?

      • Nanya

        No, but that’s because the deck’s incomplete. Right now it’s got Krenko, Krenko’s Command, Dragon Fodder, Dragon Broodmate, would love to have Dragon Broodmother in it though.
