Steamflogger Boss Discussion

JetSetDizzy on Ya ya ya! I am Lorde Tribal!

Hybrow The reason I run Steamflogger Boss over other goblin haste lords like Goblin Chieftain or Goblin Warchief is that I want to avoid double red costs as red is the smallest color of my five. It's also kind of novel to be able to legally play an unstable card.

I built a changeling deck based on Sliver Overlord , cause i liked the ability to steal other peoples creatures with it and changling instances and such. But did add a bunch of lords into it.

I would swap out Steamflogger Boss with something like Goblin Chieftain costs 1 less mana, and still gives all your guys haste. I dont think you are using contraptions, so seems a better fit.

TypicalTimmy - swapping the colours wasn’t something original - I stole the premise from Firesong and Sunspeaker, then made it so it was a bit harder to use to make running alongside storm a more attractive strategy.

Estrid’s Mask of Shadows

Enchantment Artifact - Equipment

When Estrid’s Mask of Shadows enters the battlefield, attach it to target permanent you control.

Equipped creature has totem armor.


That shares traits of both auras and equipment.

I was quite disappointed with how contraptions were implemented into the game - it seems silly to refer to contraptions on a black-bordered card, but then only implement the idea in silver-boarders.

Starting from scratch, and without requiring a contraption deck, create a new type of Artifact called a contraption that would be black-bordered, can be assembled, and can involve Riggers (per Steamflogger Boss’ rules text).

smackjack on Unstable - Worst Value Ever?

Quinnagin27 on Steamflogger??

so i started playing magic in 2013 and never being around for the UN-sets i was excited and bought 2! I went in understanding that most cards i would get would be worth nothing. As i opened it i got Steamflogger Boss and it was foiled and i know this card has no use in any format because no contraptions are legal. I go to see on Starcity games its worth $200! i was shocked should i save this and see if it goes up or should i sell it off high.

The set is ment to be used as a fun draft. Since theres only one card (Steamflogger Boss) that are tournament legal its no surprise the value is low. What you pay for is a fun draft with friends..

iAzire on Unstable - Worst Value Ever?

Unstable seems to be a HUGE miss on the value side. Everything that could have given the set value seems to have been nerfed into the ground.

The Foil Basics are at Masterpiece rarity. This means that Island, usually the most expensive, is currently running the same price as a booster box, yet you need to open 3-4 booster boxes to pull a Foil basic of any type. This rarity won't boost sales, I expect it will cause them to drop. Consider the disappointment when somebody opens a Foil Steamflogger Boss knowing that that was their Masterpiece rarity Foil Basic.

Regular Basics aren't used very often by competitive players, which are exactly the players that like to get premium printings of cards. This means, demand won't be as high as it is for real Masterpieces.

You also have the Foil tokens included in every pack. Now you would think that these would hold some value, but the Full Art sides of the tokens aren't Foil at all. We all know that WotC can print double sided Foils, and they even printed double sided Foil Zombie tokens for the Eldrich Moon prerelease packs. Why weren't these made Foil on both sides? This really just lowers demand for them as the side that made them special is just not that special, especially when other Foil tokens are being released as rewards all the time.

Almost the entire set after this is all Bulk. You can build your Cube and that's all you ever need to buy, IF you're even interested in building one.

Where is the value? It is even a HUGE money loss to Draft this product in stores. Am I to be expected to pay $4 a pack for packs that have almost no expected value, and the ONLY possible value is at Masterpiece rarity? $4 a pack is almost twice the price of what you can get the packs for now, and the set just released less than two hours ago.

Where is the value? Why am I expected to purchase this product? Why was such a product made when it is such an insult to anybody that vaguely knows the value of money?

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.
