If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Alara Reborn Fat Pack and Booster box today that means you missed the Magic Arcana as well. I still feel like Conflux just released yesterday, but that doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to this all gold set. I keep looking at the top of the booster box wondering what those images really look like since they will probably resemble some of the mythic rares in Alara Reborn. It looks like there are only three packs they are revealing at this time. Unless there are only three pack images.

Card Wizard’s Black Book – Friend or Foe? March 12, 2009

cwbbThis morning I got a heads up from reader Lunashine regarding The Card Wizards’s Black Book, as seen on YouTube. I stumbled across this video a few months ago and thought, cool a way to beat the system. I also need to give Ross Edwards some props because he probably spent a lot of time and money trying to figure that out. However, after hearing other voices online and giving this information some thought I realized this could be a bad idea.

As for me and most players we are at the consumer end of the game, meaning we buy the cards and open them. Hoping to get that chase rare or whatever we need for the decks we are playing. But if store owners or retailers are opening booster boxes in advance and pulling out the choice rares this leaves the consumers at a great disadvantage and will actually raise the cost of cards since they will be even harder to open.

I suppose if you look at it from the other end, as a consumer, you could go out and buy a booster box and open the cards you only need. Saving the rest for draft or another format.

Anyway I wanted to put up this post and see what you think? The Card Wizards Black Book – Friend or Foe?

Here is the YouTube video for your connivance.

Today we get a taste of the Conflux packaging in Magic Arcana. Here we have this nicely photoshoped view of the booster box. Honestly I think this is one of the coolest looking booster boxes in a while. This box just says, “I contain massively awesome creatures buy me.” Love that Apocalypse Hydra and all his nasty teeth. 

Here are images of three booster packs too. 

  

Can’t wait to start drafting the new set.
