So full retail for a booster box will be $143.64 then right? An 8.1% increase overall. Thus this means you might get booster boxes at about $75-$80 at best I think, unless you buy in major bulk.

Just in time for Time Spiral as well! In fact, on the exact release date of the set.

In addition to the MSRP increase, Wizards has also cut the discount rate to wholesellers which will drive up the cost to retailers an even higher percentage.

I've got some information on the history of MTG price changes, for perspective.

I stopped buying product in any signifigant amounts when I opened up my first Pro Tour player card :-( I might do a Pre release and that's about it from now on. I will continue to buy/collect ABU and other rare cards but I've had enough with the new stuff....

WOTC should decrease the number of cards per booster so as to lower the price of them, and prevent us from having thousands of duplicates. What a waste of paper !
