I heard there was a SST for every 3 to 5 boxes (I bought 3 boxes and got two SST's so I may have had some really good luck) whereas there's almost a complete set in each box (36 rares out of 40 with no duplicates) and foil rares are scarce of course... 1 per box, I think. So... on average you'll fin...

A rumour says that the third deck will be a Spirit deck. What a blue spirit deck need is Meloku. ;-D And what a blue spirit deck needs is a misprinted Meloku, but with a different misprint. Sans-serif "1/1", like the one in the photo ;-D http://img127.imageshack.us/img127/6126/meloku1rl.jpg

Russian Avens

I think there's something strange about Russian 9th Edition Avens... Aven Cloudchaser Загонщик облаков Aven Fisher Воздушный рыболов Aven Flock Воздушная стая Aven Windreader Предсказатель ветров Sage Aven Мудрая птица There should be a common word for all of them, meaning air, bird or even just "av...

So... there are duplicate cards after all... If you ask for card #10/60, it may be a swamp or a forest. In fact I suppose they will just start the numbering all over again for each set, so there will be up to 10 different cards with the same collector number. Which means I'm finally going to fill in...

I've just opened a Russian 9th Edition box and a Russian Guildpact booster pack and checked a few cards for misprints... Only the first word in a Russian card has an uppercase initial, unless there are proper names. An exception is Guardian's Magemark (Guildpact), whose title has both words uppercas...

I collect the following: - Basic lands : I have around 400 different normal and 100 foil lands. They're all in English or Spanish. I don't include promo lands, at least not for now. Looking for Salvat lands where I live to trade for as well as lands #334 and #337 of Ninth Edition (why the ..... heck...

I suppose there will be a complete foil land set because of the theme decks (which always include a foil card from the first expansion of the block). As well as the almost-obvious complete non-foil land set with the new design. Foil snow-covered lands? Misprinted all-foil theme decks? Oh, this wait ...

Q. Will there be theme decks?
A. Yes. Boosters, theme decks, a Fat Pack – we're pulling out all the stops. And as this is the third set in the Ice Age block (you know, the “lostâ€￾ one), the theme decks will include a few cards from the first two sets of the block. For those cards we will be updating them to the new card frames (since Coldsnap uses the new card frames), but we will be keeping their original art.
Does that mean... foil cards from Ice Age and Alliances!!? Even if it's only because of some rare misprint... it's some possibility that I wouldn't want to exclude!!

There will certainly be cards from Ice Age and Alliances in Russian, I suppose ;) And... with collector numbers ;)

I just got a Seeds of Strength with two short gray lines on the black border, like if it were a scratch or something.

I have the commons and uncommons ordered by set, and then collector number (or color/name) in a big binder. The rares are ordered by approximate price, color and set in a smaller binder. The commons I have in boxes are also ordered by cycle/set.
