Anyone else get the feeling that this set is going to be full of stupid, overcosted, or just bad rares (except for EDH, LOLZ) that will drag down the value, while they sneak in a few chase rares to stabilize it?
It feels like Rise of the Eldrazi all over again.

As a multinational corporation, WOTC really can't afford to "blow their load" all at once. Every set will have a small percentage of playables for each format, and since that formula has worked since the beginning, why stop? I mean, when they made every card uber power a la Urza's block, that actually hurt their player base.
but, see, there's this guy called emrakul, and in modern, there's this deck called tron
concerning AVR, it is true that there's been 3 8-mana mythics already, but most of the third sets of a block have that happen anyway so i wouldn't be too worried. besides it's not like we haven't seen chase cards yet, and we're only a week into the spoiler
