Its such a pity when Wizards releases a set that has as little value for tournament players as does Coldsnap. Jeroen Remie’s premium article on Star City Games sums it up quite well, there is only one redeeming feature of Coldsnap, it will only be around for a short while.
One of the local players was complaining to me of how bad Coldsnap is in limited, while I couldn’t give him a single reason for why the set was good to play the following things did appease him significantly:
- Its only going to be the current set for just 2.5 months, not the normal 4.
- Most people are still playing RGD as the main format for drafting .
- Its only going to be used for 1 significant local event, the top8 draft of PTQ Kobe.
Sorry that last point is a sutble lie, it’s also the format for my next Two Headed Giant.
