Wasn't Kamigawa one of the weakest standard sets?

Yes.

But it has crazy flavour (think they even released 2-3 books), and actually some really powerful cards that see play even today and go for a lot of money.

Problem is a lot of stuff either costs one or two more mana than you'd pay nowadays to cast it, or just uses mechanics that don't synergize with a lot of stuff outside of Kamigawa itself. (or both)

So you don't really see Kamigawa heavy decks today because they'd get beat really badly if played against more serious stuff.

Didn't sets having accompanying novels used to be standard procedure?

The Urza saga, the Weatherlight Saga, etc.

I'd imagine the books are pretty meh, but it's a shame they at least don't make some token effort in regard to this. I'd read some fiction set in Innistrad.

Oh God, Now I wanna make all Innistrad decks.

You're right there used to be tons of books coming out for every block.

But I guess lorefags didn't buy enough to support them keeping it up.

I'm not sad about it though because I wouldn't read them anyway in the end :laugh:

Played with Kami  :wave:

Thinking I should either tune up my Equipment or Ninja deck, or maybe pick something else from Kamigawa to breathe life into because best block needs representation damn it!  :wink:

Let's just agree that Magic as a whole as some really cool sets

I hope we get a Return to Lorwyn one of these days for one, or to "New Phyrexia".

tfw arrived at when RtR was coming out, ie just too late to experience Innistrad first-hand. :sad:

It's a shame, Innistrad was a lot of fun!

Got some fantastic card draws on the release too (3 snapcasters for one)

:ecchi:

I'm building a new deck that heavily relates to Innistrad by the way. It's gonna be an updated version of an old one I used to run. I call it "Artistic Expression"  :wink:
