Well that's pretty disappointing for a bonus card. Did everyone get the Kamigawa collector boosters due to the delay? My understanding was that you had to have paid ahead of time to get them, which I wouldn't feel good about going forward based on the insane delays they have. I got really lucky and pulled a Jin-Gitaxis and a Boseiju from my boosters, but I could have easily gotten nothing but jank. Wizards should have put a Steam Vents or a Scalding Tarn in the box as an apology. Wouldn't cost them any more than an island or mountain.

Thanks to the both of you for your thoughts Icbrgr and Squee_Spirit_Guide! There's no shortage of other things I want for other decks atm such as a Mana Drain, Scalding Tarn, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse, Smothering Tithe, Black Market Connections to name just a few so I think I'll be doing that. And hopefully if I ever need copies of it for some / Pioneer deck or something they'll hopefully be a bit cheaper later sometime and not a case of something like The Great Henge which remains quite pricey.

I have had a few regrets with a few cards in the past like a masterpiece Feast of Famine and Chalice of the Void which in hindsight I wish I maybe had kept (even though I got a fair price for them both in past times).

"Fetchlands" is just an informal term. I don't know where it started from, but it's just a way to refer to the cycle of "Pay 1 life, search for an X or Y" cards. Scalding Tarn, Wooded Foothills, et al. People usually don't refer to every land that can search for another land as fetchlands.

Stole the Steam Vents for a Pioneer deck I am building and replaced it with a Volatile Fjord. Kinda silly I have a Scalding Tarn in here and this is my dual to fetch. HA.

Just wanna say I for one would really like to see some Modern Horizons 1 & 2 a "Modern Horizons Masters" or something because Solitude, Fury, Force of Negation, Seasoned Pyromancer and others are just so so expensive.

I would really like to see cards that are in high demand just printed and reprinted over and over again so people can afford to play with them... Print higher rarities/alternate artwork for the collectors/investors.

Idk I bought into fetchlands when they where North of $50 bucks for any of the enemy fetches... Id be lieing if i said I wasnt a little bit bitter to see Scalding Tarn cost half today as it did when I bought my playset... but on the whole im honestly just happy to see that game pieces are more accessible to players... I want to get my hands on more modern horizons staples but dont wanna pay through the nose in the same way I did for fetch lands..... just gotta be patient I hope.


please give use meaningful Modern Horizons 1&2 reprints WOTC

I know it's on the higher end, but Arid Mesa is super cheap right now. Also, Misty Rainforest, Scalding Tarn, and Verdant Catacombs are at all-time lows so right now is the best time to pick them up. Seriously, if it's even remotely in the budget, these are super worth it.

Also, cards like Farseek, Nature's Lore, and Three Visits are all ramp spells at the right level that get you perfect mana -- once Capenna drops with the naya Triome, they'll quite literally be Arcane Signet but can't be destroyed by commonly run interaction, even if it enters tapped, which is HUGE for fixing. 4 2 mana ramp spells that give you all 3 colors? Chef's kiss.
