    First Jace, the Mind Sculptor, now a foil of a card who’s only other foil versions are worth $70- $150.

    Greeeaaat.

    Wizards. We get it. You want to be cool.

    Stop reprinting things in box sets that make the box sets completely overpriced.

      you should probably realize why they printed this…. the box is called twenty for a reason. it picks 20 cards that placed in the top decks. one for each year from 1993 to 2013…. swords was one of those cards.

        Thanks, Captain Obvious. It’s like Wizards already told us what FtV 20 was.

        The point I’m bringing up is that they’ve put two cards in FtV:20 that can value up to around $150 each, put a $40 MSRP price tag on it, and expected people to not turn every single box into free money.

          So what if they do? People buy collectibles all the time just to sell them for money. Stores do it on a daily basis. So what? I’ve played this game since Unlimited, which makes it about 18 years. That still doesn’t give me the right to be critical of what they do, because it’s not my business. They can do whatever they want, if you don’t like it, don’t bother and don’t buy it. That doesn’t give you the right to complain and bother other people who have to read your negative post because it grabs their attention. You complaining about what wotc prints has 0 effect on the game. And the Swords foil is $150 because it’s a Judge promo.

            I’ve been playing this game for TWO years and I’m smart enough to know that you both sound like deranged monkeys. If something is supposed to be sold at $40, it should be sold at $40. Not that hard of a concept.

          • Zombie

            It SHOULD be sold at $40, that’s my point. But the problem is, not a single person who gets their hands on a box of FTV20 is going to sell it for $40.

            They’re already pre- ordering online for $200- $250, and anyone that can get their hands on a box for $40 is being given free money by Wizards.

            my buddy owns a dealership of cards and is getting me 4 FtV 20’s for $160 USD. you just have to know the right places to go. and yes wizards is handing us free money because they are celebrating the 20th anniversary of magic. would you expect anything less or more than the cards they put in this set? have you really been playing magic for 18 years because it seems like you haven’t if you didn’t expect this lolol.

            The problem is, they’re not giving everyone free money. Just the ones that are lucky enough to get their hands on copies of FTV20.

            Every other player that didn’t get their copies at MSRP that wanted them is basically being screwed out of an additional $150- $200 per box of FTV20, just because the set has a foil Jace, the Mindsculptor in it.

            It’s a completely idiotic move by Wizards. As a veteran player, I would have been completely fine without Jace, the Mind Sculptor in the set. I’m more excited for Hymn to Tourach than Jace, anyway.

        I’ve played this game for nearly 16 years. I’ve earned the right to be a little bit critical of their process.

          and so have i. i have earned the right to say you are crying like a baby

      As the cards are all foil in FTV, their value is usually more akin to their non-foil value. This is because the value of a normal foil is caused by it’s rarity, not because it is shiny. So now, this is entirely incomparable to Jace the Debt Sculptor, whose non-foil version goes for about 100 pounds
