Mystic, I want to down vote your comment.

Have you ever seen a Ghost Black Rose? It's beautiful.

I have seen it, and I hate it as much as all the others.
Just more expensive cards for less colors to me.
Washed out images that weren't designed to be in essentially black & white.

If they actually redid the images to work better for less colors, it would be a neat effect, but they just zap the color
without fixing the image, so it just comes out as bad artwork.

I always have and always will dislike Ghost Rares.

Most ghost rares that aren't Xyz monsters look amazing. If you have them under a light they shine in all the colours of the rainbow, it's beautiful. Also, they do a pretty impressive job with the 3D, you can really tell it's all layered up.

Makes me want to stay in the game. Most of the cards I buy normally are supers so making them cheaper always helps. Monarch structure deck. Now all I need to do is find a group again.

even if you can't find any group, one albums full of holos are great (at least IMO) :lol:

The economy of this game will decrease. Watch as no card will ever be $100 again and how getting a box will generally be a loss. Good for players, bad for economy, konami loses money as skrubs try to buy boxes to get cards they want.

Konami makes no money on the secondary card market.

They would arguably make more money off this.

Why do people always assume Konami sells singles?

But then the people who are on the fence of "should I buy a box for that one card" are more likely to go ahead and actually buy a box because there are 2 secrets instead of 1. Granted, people may be more willing to just buy the single if it is easier to get, and therefore at a lower price, but then as was said above, some box was still bought somewhere, and Konami still made a profit.

The more you observe, the less you assume.

Reading is fundamental.

Konami is a merciless greedy slave driver. It only makes sense for them to sell the same cards whose value is $100+ for that $100+

I know konami don't sell singles, but the fact that there will be more of one card that's holo now will make secondary stores prices drop. Therefore less people will buy boxes because that one card will be cheap.

Yea but they still make a killing on the secret rares which usually make or break the deck. Also I feel that they don't make the exact same amount of each card even though they might be in the same rarity category. It also just means they will just holo some things that are useless to most people anyways.

More shinies for everyone!!
