Magic 2010 = Bust

Okay, so I haven't been paying much attention to Magic: The Gathering lately because the money I might normally spend on cards has been spent on Warhammer 40K and paints. In my time off, I managed to miss out on the majority of the Magic 2010 previews... and now the whole set is spoiled on the official website.

Now, I have to say that I was pretty excited when I heard about Magic 2010. I am extremely excited about the return of Duress and the Planeswalkers. I even like the new cycle of rare lands despite my love of painlands (how morbid does that sound?).

However, I still can't get past the idea that this set isn't worth my money. Half of the set is reprinted, and Wizards apparently still couldn't resist the urge to include functional reprints as well (you know, the cards that have a different name and maybe a different creature type, but otherwise do exactly the same thing as another card that's already been printed). Seriously, do these really count as new?

That said, I'm sure I'll hit eBay for a playset of black bordered Lightning Bolts and maybe the Priest of Titania lord, but I can't see myself actually buying packs to draft with this.
