I got an IM from the inimitable Patrick Chapin the other day, and we got to talking about RoE’s Mythics. We both believe that the Mythic market may be due for a correction due to all the high-dollar cards in the set. One thing led to another, and eventually we found a point of contention.
See, I’ve played some games against white’s big leveler. And in those games, it was like watching LeBron James dunk on a woefully under-prepared opposing squad. In one case, Elspeth was doing her best Daniel Gibson impression from the above video. The Master just took to the air and slammed the game home, and there wasn’t much I could do about it. After all, if I found an answer to the giant monster heading my way, there were still a horde of 3/3 Students on the ground, just waiting to take care of business in his stead.
Chapin and I disagreed here. I commented that the $15 price tag on Transcendent Master “seemed about right” and he was absolutely not having it. I respect the man’s opinion, but I held firm. We made a gentleman’s wager, since I really don’t believe in betting in the tradition sense. If Transcendent Master is $14 or above on June 8th, which is a week after the Pro Tour in San Juan, Chapin owes me a beer at the next event we both attend. If it’s below, I owe him one.
Now you guys get to weigh in. With a frothy cold pint on the line, do you take the Over or Under on Transcendent Master at $14?
[Incidentally, this is about the length of the old style of posting I was talking about in my poll. I can do these far more often than I can release article-length content. I like them infinitely better, too!]
