Magic: the Gathering in the UK

I loved Innistrad.  I believed Maro when he said New World Order made things better for experienced players too and used Innistrad as an example.

Then Modern Masters came out and despite having to include a bunch of rares and only being allowed cards from Mirrodin to Shards it was way better than anything we've seen since Innistrad, and most of what came before, too.

It will be minimum one year until the next Modern Masters.

So, my idea is, let's make our own Modern Masters.

Random ideas that are very much half formed:

* 6 of each of 60 commons, 3 of each of 60 uncommons, 2 of each of 50 rares, 1 of each of 10 mythics is 650 cards.

* Use old cards, pre-Mirrodin, for spell-based funtimes and novelty even for players that have been playing for a while.

* Invent cards where necessary to fill holes.

* Some possible seeded archetypes: free spell necro, ug madness, gro, draw-go, astral slide, reanimator, artifact control, mill, auras, tokens, birthing pod, pox, sacrifice, prison, wizard tribal.

* Possibly include a lot of Legacy playables and call it "Legacy Masters".  What wizards would print if they said fuck it to the secondary market and the reserve list and tried to support legacy via a "Masters" release.

What do you think?  Interested in being on the development team?  Could make for some cheap Tuesday nights during the long reign of M14* ...

* = Bit of a cheap shot.  I've actually really enjoyed 3 of the last 4 core set drafts.

You can draft the latest version at http://cubetutor.com/draft/1393

Is this right?

There are a ton of odd cards in here, like all the black shadow guys and split cards. Black has almost 200 cards more than any other colour.

I included a lot of the maybes.  I guess B has a lot more maybe Commons than the other colors.

I tried to ask Maro about our Uncommons problem but I didn't get much in the way of help. Can't think of a good way to phrase the question!

I assume you were talking about distinct cards at a given rarity, and I assume MaRo is talking about raw volume?

Are you trying to ask "What would be the effect of printing the same number of distinct cards at each rarity?"

I was trying to ask him "if we had 80 Uncommons instead of 60 what's bad about that?"

Anyone up for a Sunday playtest/draft?

Last minute Legacy Masters FNM at my place in Pimlico if anyone is at a loose end.

When the Opals turn into Creatures they are no longer Enchantments. Didn't know that.

The stats page now supports filtering by color and by rarity.
