Magic player/collector: Should you buy FTV: ANGELS?
So, first of all i wrote player / collector since most of these cards won't be tournament legal, and probably a lot of you play standard / draft.
so, From The Vaults (FTV) are special collector package that Magic releases once a year with a special theme. it is usually an all-foil 15 cards "set", (only one was 20 cards), having a special foil unique to the FTV cards, revolving around some of the strongest or more game impacting cards. Previous editions includes: Dragons, Artifacts, Legendaries, and even Lands.
this year, we have Angels, coming out August 21st, with the list available here.
(expect new art for Iridescent Angel, Exalted Angel, Serra Angel, and the two Akroma)
so, with a usual price tag of 120-150$, should you buy this FTV?
Well, i made a nifty file compiling the lowest and highest price of each card, in their Foil and Non-Foil version.
if you don't care about foil or alternate art, buying each cards individually would cost you a bit less than 115$
if you like foils, and mostly unique art, these cards (in their previous iteration), would cost you a nice 400$
