Either way, we've got a lot to talk about, and I'm excited to get into it, so let's cut the chatter and see some cards! Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you:
From the Vault: Realms
|Ugly packaging. It's what's inside that counts, though, right?|
Personally, I am in the camp that doesn't need this - we discourage countermagic in my EDH group (though it does show up in small doses), so I'm not too worried about protecting my spells. That said, I can't complain about the inclusion because I know this is gonna be easy to trade off.
And, here's the card that most of use will never have a reason to play with, yet we'll be happy to have it anyway, because it's cool, unique and SEXY AS HELL. Whether this ends up being a $1.00 card or a $20.00 card, I'll never have occasion to complain - if it sits uselessly in my binder forever, at least it'll be sexy while doing so!
Ugh. I guess some people will enjoy this. It's a rare, old card that's fairly hard to come by, and it's pretty unique. I can see why the put this in, but I really would rather have had almost any other land in the history of Magic than this. I can only hope that this has some value as trade fodder, but I'd be surprised...
So, there you have it, folks. FTV: Realms in all it's splendor. And let me just state for the record, in no uncertain terms:
THIS IS THE BEST FTV SET TO DATE.
Mark my words, this is going to be worth a fourtune, and many of the cards in here will likely be pure platinum a year or so from now. Okay, not Desert or Shivan Gorge. But yeah, grab one of these if you can. Even better, grab TWO and put one away for a long time. Gold, man. Solid f***ing gold.
