Equally interesting, Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, but it doesn't play as nicely with the legend rule, and that's not really what MDFCs do.

That said, it could be a really interesting TDFC, flavored as a quest rather than a story.

DragonSliver9001, Zilortha is only 10$ and, just like the other cards, is a "reskin," if you can call it such, as it's an alternate-art depiction of a card that has not come out yet and is not scheduled to come out in the future. Consider the TWD cards "preskins," as it were, in much the same way. Alternate artwork, just like Zilortha, for a card that will be reprinted should the need arise.

That's a really interesting viewpoint, DemonDragonJ. "No, it should not exist, but it does and people love it" is a really troubling challenge to overcome, I guess all you can do is give the consumers what they want. And I see why it's a thing, I mean, it's a sexy way to be like "dude, it's not just normal cold here it's cold as FUCK."

Also, I heard you mention sagas and I want to get as many people on this hype train as possible: the MDFCs in Kaldheim should be legendary creatures that can be played as sagas. Plays great with the legend rule, gives you an enchantment in the command zone, and the absolute flavor of it? Delicious.

DragonSliver9001 I'm perceiving the Walking Dead cards in much the same way as Zilortha, Strength Incarnate. It's a limited, premium printing of an okay-to-not-great card, with the full understanding that if it becomes a highly sought-after game piece, WotC can reprint it with more typical Magic artwork. The only difference is that Zilortha came on top of a box and not alongside other, similarly premium cards, and probably will cost less and have a higher print run.

Zilortha is just shy of 10$ and is a cool game piece, but not especially good. I think that all of these cards are going to be in that same boat.

FSims81, you may be right, but we'll just have to see.

Why am I so chill about this? Because these are not cards that I need. I don't like this product at all- it breaks my immersion and costs too much. But for the people this product is for (people who like the Walking Dead, or just cool promo cards, and have the cash to spend on cardboard), this is great. Most importantly, though, and I cannot stress this enough, this product does not hurt those who won't buy it! If we don't want these cards, or won't drop the cash on them, we do not need to buy them- not even to play competitively, because these just aren't great cards. If we don't want to buy them, that's fine and we lose nothing. And, to be clear, I don't want to buy them. I have college and stuff to pay for. I think this is a harmless product. If they were stronger cards, that would be another matter.

DragonSliver9001, I'm not sure I understand. Do you take issue with cards seeing their first printing in a secret lair setting? If so, why? If not, what about this SL do you take issue with?

enpc has a point. If WotC is willing and able to print the normal versions of these cards I actually don't have any issues at all with this secret lair.

Do I think this was a shady and exploitative way to sell Secret Lairs? I do. But the community has hopefully made that very clear and if WotC's willing and able to reprint, I see little issue with these being the first printings of these cards to see market- but only because they're very low-power cards.

I think that good snow fixing in the form of duals would be too nuts. Like, is there any reason not to play snow basics over regular basics?

Ya know what, I respect the spirit of innovation. Johnnies of a feather flock together. Consider Tana, the Bloodsower and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, as Samut's haste only applies to five of the token producers in your deck (the rest have haste or produce tokens during combat).
