Fatter Fat Pack

If KFC's Double Down can push droves of consumer's to rave reviews, how difficult would it be for Wizards of the Coast to sell you a fatter Fat Pack ? We will certainly see when Mirrodin Besieged is on 4th February, 2011.

MTG Realm has reviewed the latest Sales Solicitation flyer from Wizards and now brings you the reader some highlights . . .

NEW FAT PACK: The classic Magic Fat Pack receives a new configuration with the release of Mirrodin Besieged. Fat Packs will now contain nine boosters (instead of eight), 80 land cards (instead of 40), a Spindown™ life counter, a player’s guide, a card storage box, and two 60-card deck boxes.

NEW EVENT DECKS: New with Mirrodin Besieged are Event Decks. These 60-card decks come with a 15-card sideboard and are perfect for use in Standard play tournaments like Friday Night Magic or Game Day celebrations. They also come with a Spindown life counter and a reusable card box. Please note: The two versions being released for Mirrodin Besieged will be released on February 25, 2011 – just in time for Game Day!

INTRO PACK DISPLAYS: Unlike previous sets, there will only be four versions of the Intro Packs for Mirrodin Besieged (normally, there are five versions). There will be two decks to represent the Mirran faction and two decks for Phyrexia. The displays will still contain ten decks – two of each type plus two more selected at random.

Did you all catch that ? ? The new Fat Pack now has 40 additional land, two 60-card deck boxes AND one additional booster pack. Let's compare and review ->

Scars of Mirrodin Fat Pack
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MRSP) = $34.99
8 boosters, 1 card box, 1 player’s guide, 1 40-card land pack, 1 learn-to-play insert, 1 Spindown™ life counter.

Mirrodin Besieged Fat Pack
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MRSP) = $39.99
9 boosters, 1 card box, 1 player’s guide, 1 80-card land pack, 2 60-card deck boxes, 1 Spindown™ life counter.

We want everyone to pipe in with your comments below -

Are you getting value with the extra $5 you will be paying ?

Considering the additional lands (we don't really care about), the extra booster pack (yep, we like) and the two deck boxes (we'd have to see 'em first), we think we like the deal.

I liked it better When it brought the novel given in some countries is something near imposible to get them. Specially now that they are all fragmented with all the new planeswalkers

But i Like it!

Exactly, I loved it back when it came with a novel, I don't care about the extra lands or pack. The problem is that it looks like they stopped making a novel for each set, and rather one for each block now. Rise of Eldrazi novel was terrible, by the way.

I found some of the novels floating around on the web and currently own the first 5. I love the novels and i think they should be brought back in full force!
