    What would you like to see?

    I have been a big fan of Runabout and Runamuck, build some nice fun decks with them - especially nice since I have builds with Flamewar and Road Hugger, which are also available as Gold Rares.

    This weekend I updated my Dreadwing builds - and now I really want Dreadwind and Blackwing as Gold Rares... which would also be nice since you have a complete pair. Would love to get a Gold Thrust to go with it.

    Yeah, Goldbug would be fitting... once WotC decides to put him in the game.

    Since we did not see Gold Promos for Wave 5... do you think WotC axed them?

    Wouldn't this be an easy way for "fixing" Topspin? Release him with Twintwist and their two Titan Master partners as Gold Rare promos for Wave 06! XD

    Because of how negatively the SDCC promos were received, especially with Cliffjumper being a tournament staple and ridiculously hard to obtain before the Energon Edition reprint, WotC is reserving mechanically unique promos for In-Store Play and Buy-a-Box promos (such as how Tidal Wave, Arcana, and Perceptor are being distributed), and will make future SDCC promos special treatment reprints instead. Essentially reversing their roles.

    Whether the promos will be Gold Foil or have some other treatment, we don't know yet, since nothing's been announced since the change.

    Good point. Speaking of Tidal Wave - could it be that he was planned as this years SDCC pack?

    I doubt it, we got the announcement that he'd be the Wave 5 Promo with Arcana way before any shit hit the fan world wide.

    I don't know? Lets start with a main card, and then you need to find as many pieces as you can in the battle cards :p
