Pieces like this make me wonder if Seb McKinnon actually gets any notes from WotC on what to do. I bet their notes on this one were "Hey Seb, we think you can do a killer piece for Vengeful Rebirth. Go fucking nuts." Man is a treasure.
The problem is that people totally didn't buy it, and then WotC has doubled and tripled down on pricing. Iconic can be got for less than 150 easily. Thats a large indication that it didn't sell.
Highly playable in Limited.
I feel if they were simply combined into a single "Eternal Masters 2" and released in the Masters 25 slot, it would've been an easy hit.
You can still get the new goyf art in the regular printing. I think of the box toppers as less like Masterpieces and more like Super Foils.
and if you are thinking about buying a box topper alone, don't do it. the package can be seen through so resellers will probably sell only box toppers that contain bulk.
Ah, I thought they used the MM art like they always do with Masters sets. Thanks, I'll just get the regular version then lol
Right, but the point is if you're seeing somebody selling the box topper sealed all by itself, you probably shouldn't buy it. Not unless you're willing to open a Stirring Wildwood. Some less scrupulous people might look inside the pack, see a card that's below market value for a sealed box topper, then try to flip it for the market rate instead.
The whole reason people are saying the set is $14 a booster is because unlike every other set where WOTC gives the booster MSRP, this time they only gave the BOX MSRP of $~333. In theory, stores that open boxes to sell boosters should not be selling them for $14, they should sell them for something less then that, and then they can sell the Masterpiece in whatever way they want
There's a really obvious "Terese Nielsen would be black, but don't tell her that" joke in here.
