    @Oktagon_Support
    Thank you for the update! Any news on when IKO vanguards will be released - I had thought they might be coming with this 4.3 update.
  • DragonSorcererDragonSorcerer Posts: 156 Tile Toppler
    so following the convention the last From the Vault set will be craftable with this new release ?
  • Michael_WCMichael_WC Posts: 65 Match Maker
    And will the current ODY cards rotate into already accrued Legacy non-dupe packs? @Oktagon_Support

    "Due to very little Vanguard Cards material in this set, there are no plans for Vanguards for the IKO collection."

    "For now, similar to the Vanguard Cards, the Cards from the From the Vault series will not be available in Booster Crafting and therefore these cards are available only through the Booster rotations in the Vault."

    The VIP legacy boosters are looking more and more useless with each announcement

    Agreed, for those nearing complete collections or who already have them.....there isn't much more incentive to keep VIP around.

    Thanks for the clarifications @Oktagon_Support. One last question, currently there are Exclusive Rares for ODY, that are not in the ODY boosters. Will these be rotating into the boosters along with the Mythics mentioned above?

    I like vanguards so it is a little disappointing not to have some for Ikoria. But it seems to me that the vanguards are related to the PWs released for a new set, so on the contrary there are plenty of new materials for vanguards. Especially a white red blue Narset vanguard that would have been wonderful.

    Please let torment be standard, it looks like too much fun to waste away in legacy... 

  • ArielSiraArielSira Posts: 347 Mover and Shaker
    I wish both Odyssey and Torment would become Standard enabled (but not added to the actual amount of Standard sets because of rotations) in this game. They fit quite well, more than just in Legacy.
  • TremayneTremayne Posts: 1,112 Chairperson of the Boards
    @ArielSira - I think Octagon has another intend with these legacy-only sets. They seem to me to be focused on making it easier for newer players to get good legacy cards so they can contend in more events. Players with large collections are not the target, but of course those with a collection addiction are also in scope.
  • critmancritman Posts: 388 Mover and Shaker
    Any reason why you've picked Odyssey Block to reprint?

    "The From the Vault cards are handled in a similar way as Vanguard cards, they will only be available in their respective Boosters category. Even if it's a Legacy collection."
    You should make this new policy clear in the VIP Subscription FAQs. I was expecting to be able to use VIP Legacy boosters to get ODY cards once the new set came out.

    ODY is not in Standard, so logically it should be in Legacy, no?
  • SmokincookzSmokincookz Posts: 157 Tile Toppler
    I always assumed that this would be the case for the From the Vault collections. They did not have the mana crystals discount when released, and I then viewed it similarly to the Duel Deck event collections.
    A little more clarity upon release would save some players from future headaches, it sounds like. Players should be able to make informed decisions about what they purchase.

    I tend to err on the side of caution with any unknowns pertaining to new releases, especially when it comes to how I spend money on the game. I doubt I can keep up a full Standard collection forever, (especially with the frequency of new sets being added, & booster crafting delay) so eventually I’ll have unobtained cards going into Legacy again, two rotations from now. 

    It is up to each player to analyze long term and decide what resources might just be useless for a while (especially those with near full collections, unless you whaled the whole way, strategy was already involved).

    I weighed the decision last time I bought VIP, and decided I was ok with having some VIP Legacy packs for down the road. More information about ALL releases will always be praised, but it needs to be stated clearly.
    There have been times where official statements, previously thought to be true, were claimed to have been an error or confusing wording. That is what makes me cautious. I believe most info we get is valid, however sometimes there have been unexpected switcheroos that shake the community.

    Is it intended, that the Premium Packs of the most recent set, i.e. Ikoria does NOT come along with a bonus rare anymore?! @Oktagon_Support

    At least, IKO PPs don't show up with the usual indication in my vault, while all Premium Packs of other sets still have it.

    The 4.3. (Pre)release notes didn't mentioned this "change" though...
    Thanks for clearing this up...
  • Oktagon_SupportOktagon_Support ADMINISTRATORS Posts: 1,211 Chairperson of the Boards
    Hello @coldity,
    Thank you so much for the heads up!
    My team was testing the Premium Pack and the bonus rare card is there, you receive it.
    The text is missing, but we already warned the responsible team so they to fix it.

    Thank you so much  ;)
