I have just seen that Olivia is on sale in the vault!!!!!

Her cost is ridiculously low on top of that.

I expect to see her a lot in the coming weeks.

    Not really. Gisela was previously in vault before I didn't get her at that time for being too preoccupied. Her returning shouldn't be an issue.
    If olivia made it to vault, why not the pig?
    The first time olivia was in vault, she was available in mythic pack with the pig, corruption, the pig and some others if I recall.

    Ah. They finally got me again. Haven’t spent money since I pre-purchased Karn

    When Olivia was first released she was a $20 mythic.  That was widely considered a steal.
    Now selling her for $4?  Wow.

    I crafted her a month or two ago, but even I'd spend on this if I hadn't. 

    Now I'm just worried that the obvious cash grabs they're doing is a bad sign for the future.  Hopefully I'm just seeing shadows here.

    I totally get the same vibe, seeing this go for such a cheap price. Bur perhaps they are just trying to circumvent the crafting system and get people to spend cash. It seems it got @DumasAG to open the purse string ever so slightly. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    gisela is one of the few mythic i ever bought when it came out originally, still dont reget it, 12 for a 8/8 lifelink first striker is always a bargain, still use her when i need a reliable creature in legacy

    Oh yeah.  It used to be all the best Rares and Mythics were put up for cash (and some not so great ones)
    Ones I can remember off the top of my head (and with some help from MTGPQ.info):

    Olivia
    Emrakul
    Ulrich
    Shrine of Forsaken gods
    Geralf's Masterpiece
    Gisa and Geralf
    Mirrorwing Dragon
    Ulamog
    Avacyn
    Gisela
    Grim Flayer
    Captain's Claws
    General Tazri
    Linvala the Preserver
    Stone Haven Outfitter
    Baral
    Heart of Kiran
    Boomship
    Mindwrack Demon

    Definitely a lot others.  A bunch of the rares and Kaladesh Mythics I can't remember which were given as progression rewards in events and which were cash.  Got bored before Amonkhet so nothing from there either.  If anyone remembers let me know!  (maybe we can put it in the wiki somewhere)
    Considering mythic bundles used to be pretty standard $15-$30 each and the rares were $5-10 it would have been pretty pricey to buy them all.  Luckily, not all the options were great (looking at you Grim Flayer and Mirrorwing Dragon lol).

    I dont think there will be the pig bundle.

    I have noticed that the Bundle related to Planewalker Preconstructed Deck since they sold Thopter Spy Network, and Drwoner of Hope.

    And both TSN and DoH are in Kiora'sExpert Deck & Tezz1 Master deck.
    Then, GRB (Geier Reach Bandit) bunble was sold a little after TSN & DoH. Yes, GRB is in Arlinn's Expert Deck.

    Olivia is also in Nahiri Expert Deck.

    Unforetunately, No any PW have Pig in their pre-constructed deck. So, we wont have that bundle unless some unexpected matter happen.

    Excuse my ignorance but I'm a relatively new player. Which card is Pig?

    I remember buying that years ago now for the original sale price.

    It almost singlehandedly catapulted me from mid tier to top tier.  I had just scored the walker the original Saheeli event and drawn TSN is a very lucky blue pack draw.

    She was originally somewhat bugged with madness cards where it wouldn't discard those, but still provide the buff to all your TSN tokens, for example.

    I'd say she's a little less relevant now.  Powercreep has kinda caught up with the classic heavy hitters, I'd say.  But will remain one of the main reasons the legacy designation exists at all in MTGPQ.

    Yeah this worries me to.  If I see piggy or deploy up for cash I'll really get worried they're cashing out.

    That would be the final warning sign needed? Lol may want to look at all the other signs you passed before that happens.

    It hurts to see BAE so cheaply valued

    Creatures have largely been made extinct by spells. Except, yknow, creatures that cast spells for free.
