it seems this was a store owner opening the product early

I hope it's one of the guys who work at my card shop...They're all dicks.

Yeah, seems like a really stupid risk seeing that this is a breach of contract. I wouldn't mess around doing this kind of thing as a store owner. Now, as a regular guy who somehow came into a box early, I would.
Where did this information come from?
I need to open a store so I can steal cards.
I like it better when this doesn't happen. This is way too much information to process right now.
Where did this information come from?


Simply because this question didn't get answered.  What's the source behind the store owner story?

At least, they weren't all rares. Were they?
No, mostly commons/Uncommons.  

But not being rares doesn't mean anything.  Uncommons and even commons are still format defining, and when it comes to Limited they are the cards you want to be paying the most attention to. 
Is Wizards upset at the massive spoiler dump?

I was actually thinking of the first cache of Ravnica packs, in which common and rare slots were mixed up. ;)

Yeah, they usually are. They like to release cards in a way that gets people excited about the set.
Well, they should just make the pre-realease this weekend now then since its all out there.
I'd like to see an article about this leak sometime tonight on Daily. Just to hear what Wiz has to say.
Honestly, it's a matter of Wizards being anal about their poor structure of spoiler season. The spoiler dump always happens 2 weeks before a set is released, because that's when the product goes out. Frankly, rather than making a stink about it, they should just start spoiler season earlier and be more consistent.

There are legal reasons not to mention it. Expect little more than "we are aware of it. We disapprove." and an Explantion of why revealing the cards slowly is important.

Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.

Part of the reason spoiler season is really slow is that a good chunk of the casual crowd that actually has more money than sense will preorder a box or boxes, regardless of if they have seen anything. Meaning if they happen across a full spoiler 3 weeks ahead of time and they dislike what they are seeing they have the ability to cancel the order they placed which annoys store owners and cuts into profit for wizards. Wizards slow rolls the previews to build hype so that the average consume is more likely to say oooooh I want that card NOW and throw away your expendable funds.

 Admittedly this set has the shock lands in it so the people in the know will be buying insane amounts of boxes since there is a pretty decent secondary market for such cards even especially initally. So a mega spoiler by a store owner atm isnt going to affect much of the outcome right now

The full preview is usually posted roughly 2 weeks before it seems to me.  This is only a week off and there's still a few left to go.  It doesn't seem as big a deal as last time where wasn't it like a month earlier than intended?

It's nice to only have 4-5 previews a day.  I can't remember half of the spoilers i've read today haha.   
I know they are trying to slow standard down and all , but crimeny Ive seen more 6+cc in so many cards in this set...Im begining to wonder..

It doesn't help that most of them are forgetable to begin with.  But I guess Limited does need its filler...



Limited is the best!  You're screwed if you forget all the commons/uncommons!

Can't slow standard when they print sets like Avacyn restored that has so many 3-4 cmc drops that have amazing playability! IE: undying.

Yeah, but they are commons, which means WIzards is trying to slow down limited. Only really powerful and (mana) expensive cards slow down standard (and even then, only if there are effective ways of delaying until then). Most of the 6+ CMC cards are for limited use only.
