A lot of the time really big super-rare items are listed on eBay as a way of getting free advertising and are then taken down once a sale is arranged privately.

That, or someone said "I want to see it in person but then I'll hand you cash for it."

Yeah, I went and looked and the Alpha Lotus and Summer Serendib are both still listed. So it seems more likely that someone made a credible offer. Watch this end up in Shkreli's collection or something.

"I cast lightning bolt."

"In response I activate top."

(10 minutes pass)

"Does bolt resolve?"

"I'm gonna brainstorm."

(10 minutes pass)

"Does bolt resolve?"

"I activate my other top."

(10 minutes pass)

"Does bolt resolve?"

(10 minutes pass)

"... yes."

You need to crack a fetch or two in there, or you're just going through the same cards.

The joke was that would be the sane way to make every fucking game go to time.

Hilariously, Leovold shot up to $60 earlier today on the news of Top's banning, so who knows where he'll end up.

I'm sad because I have a Leovold deck with a foil commander. But I'll just revamp it to Thrasios/Tymna and make it every scarier.

Yeah, that's nuts. Emergency bans are basically unprecedented, having only happened once before. But the fact that this was only two days after the regular B&R announcement smacks of INCREDIBLE incompetence and supreme unreliability. This is exactly the sort of thing that really damages trust.

Apparently it was because they needed post-Amonkhet results from MTGO... but it's not like they couldn't have delayed the B&R announcement a week.

Or, two days even. People depend on those announcements to make financial decisions and a LOT of purchases are made in the immediate wake of B&R announcements now. A lot of people just lost a lot of money.

On that note, apparently SCG is letting people return Saheeli Rais they bought in the intervening two days.

There were some big announcements today. I like the idea of large sets that aren't tied to a specific world. Hopefully that will let the story and gameplay mechanics breathe. I especially like that they're going to tone down the focus on the Gatewatch. It was getting really obnoxious.
