D&D General MtG Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Spoiler Thread

I’m happy with the lack of boobs on dragonborns. Reptiles don’t need boobs
I appreciate that as well, but that’s not new for 5e. According to Chris Perkins, they had them in the 4e art direction purely to distinguish males and females, but got rid of that distinction for 5e.

So I'm opening my first box and it's a set box. I got a foil mythic rare, Iymrith, Desert Doom. I also got a card from a different set, Necrotic Sliver. How often do those things happen?

There are also cards that are just monster stats for RPG D&D encounter. I've gotten the MM stats for Ghoul and Roper so far.

Yeah, they put overall desirable cards in there. The stats are what is usually an "Art card" with just art, but for this they decided to pit some monster stats in.

One of my monster stat cards has an autograph in gold writing on it. That anything? I feel like I'm opening a pack of sports cards. LOL
The MTG Wiki on Fandom gives incredibly thorough breakdowns of each Magic set, including Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. The signed art card is pretty rare . . . so, put that sucker in a card sleeve and either hoard your treasure, or sell it for some bucks!

Four teams made it out for two-headed giant pre-release at our FLGS this evening. My 11yo and I were one of three teams to go 2-1 in the round robin. He played WR Dragons (4 of them) and Equipment (two of the Bruenor) and I played UB Rogue Class (2) and dice rolling (3 of the pixie guide). Was a lot of fun :). Have two prerelease kits for at home too.

Apparently folks are finding cards from Modern Horizons 2 in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms packs.
These oddities happen a fair amount. I watched a bet box at the first pro tour Los Angeles get opened and drafted. Every rare was an alpha rare. I also opened a box of revised where the rare spot was a land in every pack, but all 3 uncommon spots were rare cards.

Production has been odd this year. For example, with the last release, they sent Commander cases of the same deck instead of them in different colors. (I've just seen a post by somebody who pulled a card from a future release on a Commander deck!)

And to elaborate in the oddness, this time I opened two boxes and a bundle: I got 3+ of almost every common, but Devour Intellect (Which is a common too!). I got basically two playsets of the Wizard class, but not a single Warlock class card (which is the same rarity). (At least I got an Intellect Devour from the pre-release kit. It just happens to be in Spanish which clashes with the rest)

I had some fun pulls.

  • Minsc, which means I can make a Boo deck.
  • not one, but two Tarrasques, and one is superspecial because it is a foil showcase.
  • Two Drizzts.
  • Icyngdeath and a Gold Dragon
  • A book of Exalted deeds.
  • Tons of showcase cards, sometimes two in the same pack..
  • A Lolth, and she is foil!

I also got some cards from the List which is also a nice thing. Now, I don't know how to proceed. I'm missing some uncommons and rares I would like to have -and only have 9 out of the twenty mythics- plus I loved the art series -specially the ones that double as game aids for D&D-. But I'm not sure if I should get another set box or just hunt for the singles. (Hunting for the singles has the additional difficulty in that I'm not in the States, so TCG Player and the like is impractical, and buying from Ebay implies an extra $10 per transaction -that or risk it very likely getting lost in the way-. I'm limited to what I can find in my LGS, the fan centers in the City -which aren't all open and aren't practical or safe to visit because of the crowded public transport- and to what little I could find in our local equivalent Ebay which is not much. Facebook market is an option, but a gamble everytime)
 


AFR JUST released in stores, like seriously just released yesterday, and already a new huge unexpected set is coming out on Arena, Jumpstart: Historic Horizons. A pile of Modern Horizons 1 & 2 & 31 new Arena cards are hitting Arena. Like how is anyone supposed to keep up with this?

They've been doing this for years. They actually don't expect many people to keep up: the target is to scattershot bait for casual purchases.

Jumpstart is a very, very fun way to play, glad to see they are doing more of it.
