4RW
Legendary Creature - Minotaur Cleric (r)
Red instant and sorcery spells you control have lifelink.
Whenever a white instant or sorcery spell causes you to gain life, this deals 3 damage to target creature or player.
4/6

Annoyed it isn't any target but hey, playable minotaur general, pretty decent RW legend.

This is genuinely the stupidest decision Wizards has ever made in their entire history as a company.

I wouldn't go quite that far, but it certainly is genuinely stupid.

I'd be less mad if the card wasn't exclusively a commander level card. For gods sake, how much heavy lifting do us casuals have to do to crack packs?

Having just left a mobile game after a year + of daily play because the dev was getting increasingly more shady with their predatory habits... This, the jace pack foil lottery, and the obsession with masters sets reaks of shit. I am losing my desire to play and support the game and it's very upsetting.

People will complain about anything. Compare this outrage to, say, a commander deck. To get those legends, you have to buy that $40 deck. Sure, there’s a price difference, but you get more cards and you can still buy the single.
Jace pack foil lottery - really? You get all the alternate arts by buying the pack and your complaint is that you probably won’t get the foil you want? That seems a bit more of an entitlement thing to me. Foils are a bonus, not a default. If they didn’t foil any of them, people wouldn’t complain.

Masters sets, I will concede, have been handled poorly.

1. People who want a particular legend that's good in commander are much more likely to be interested in buying a commander deck than in buying a booster box.

2. $40 is a lot different than $100, especially when you're far more likely to get good value from buying a commander deck than from buying a booster box.

3. Far, far more people buy commander decks than buy booster boxes, and on top of that the buy-a-box promo doesn't come with every booster box, just the first however many bought after the set's release, so the supply of these will be far lower than that of a commander deck legend and therefore the single price will be significantly higher than a commander deck legend of equivalent popularity.

4. This card is standard legal, and while this particular one probably won't see play in standard, if there ever is a buy-a-box promo like this that becomes a 4-of in a standard deck, this problem will be multiplied by like a thousand.

While out of context, it is a contradiction, contextually it isn’t. People can’t complain about something they are unaware exists. Technically, it’s nothing.

Yeah, people complain about everything, even my own personal thoughts on the direction of WoTC. The Jace deck is the successor to the all foil FTV. If you're okay with changing one of the few what you see is what you get style products they release into yet another money grab lottery then more power to you. Fuck me for finding the model shady. Enjoy your foil negate.

no, they would complain about something else

like how there isn’t a foil
