They did not say if it will be released in several languages though... I just hope not.

I agree! Until something costs more than a Summer rare, it shouldn't even raise an eye.

I spoke with two store owners here in NJ and both stated that their distributors had relayed this information to them: apparently stores will be getting no more than FOUR of these so they are slated to be extremely rare. Get yours on pre-order ASAP if you want this.

Well :
18 premium foil cards
10 oversized premium foil cards -> USELESS (0.1$ each)
120 UltraPRO foil card sleeves -> USELESS
20 double-sided Battle Marks (+ and –) -> USELESS (1-2$)
A life counter that goes up to 99 -> USELESS (1-2$)

What this 18 foil cards would raide a box at 75$ ??
Sylvan Library is a good start, but not enough obv

because it isn't really worth that much as far as material and production go?? Honest though I don't know unless, after that Helvault trick, they are testing the waters to see just how much collectors will pay for a limited run of something.

Oh, for the days when you felt good about getting a complete expansion together and had the pre-release card and a couple Arena cards to go with it. A felling of satisfaction and accomplishment. Still remember how excited and pleased I was to get that Dirtcowl Wurm at the Tempest pre-release in Korea. Now it is more like FIVE pre-release cards!!! FIVE more set related promo cards!!!!! There is no satisfaction, only desperation.

Sigh...

The "4" number is correct. I am a premier store and we are only getting 4. Also note that Sylvan Library will not be the best card in the box. Count on that. Jason

well, you should sell those 4 packs to members here. :-P

I 'm sure, this pack will be a source of frustration for most of us / collector.

FTV Retail price 35$
Resell price 75$

Why keep them for sell at 35$, if no one sell it for less than 75/100$

Arsenal Retail price 75$
Resll price ? 150$

Next collector pack : 150$
Resell : 350$

Yes, this is true, I spoke with our WOTC rep 2 weeks ago and can confirm this for sure. SUPER LAME

»Sliver queen«?? She's on the reserved list!?

Oversized doesn't count i guess.

And »Loyal Retainers«? They are not making friends with this! They cost ~170$, the price will shurly drop!
