So, this is suppose to be the final core set.

So, what does that mean exactly, that there will be no M17 and onward? How does this affect things going forwards? I can't really find any info regarding this. Plus, I would like to hear the opinions of some of our resident Magic experts such as Jeebus and Syd.

Also, just curious, what was everyone's favorite core set?

Mine was 10th edition, only because that is when I stopped playing only via PC, and actually started buying cards and getting into the tabletop game.

Origins is supposed to "mark the beginning of a new standard." Where Standard will rotate every 18 months, rather than every two years. Wizards held a panel at SDCC explaining more of the details:



As to the prerelease, 2/3 of my non-seeded rares were in White, including the bitchin'-awesome Archangel of Tithes.

Yes, this is the last core set. Short version: there will be 2 two-set blocks each year instead of a core set and three-set block. There will be a rotation every six months instead of every year. I think it's a very good change overall, but I found Origins to be rather underwhelming. The concept of flip planeswalkers is awesome, but they're not amazing.

Points for giving you a way to permanently set your opponent on fire with Chandra though.

That's just a rehash of the ability from Obsidian Fireheart (The land still burns)

I hadn't actually known about that card (I was pretty absent from Magic between Lorwyn and Scars). It's nice but there are ways of destroying lands; emblems are pretty much untouchable.

Question from someone who vaguely dabbled in MtG for a while but has fallen super off the wagon because money: do you think this will make Magic MORE expensive overall, or less? Or the same?

What's the old saying? The more things things change the more they stay the same? Since the original post four years ago, we've had two core sets and WotC has abandoned the notion of including an MSRP on its products.

There's now a regular box of booster packs and a Premium box that you can only buy online. That said, we also have Arena, which you can play on a computer for free.
