Is it just me or is WAR the time to pay for the much reduced acquisition rate of mythic wildcards?

I haven't looked much at the other colors yet but white alone appears to have 3 bomb mythics (Gideon, Finale and God-Eternal) that are going to be factors in Standard - in a single set. Help me find three white mythics in all of the other sets we have now that do: History of Benalia. Even Lyra only exists in sideboards.

Roughly looking at the other colors' mythics, they don't seem much worse. How about the Boar God with Rhythm of the Wild or Domri, Chaos Bringer in play for Haste? Bring in Ghalta or his new buddy Zombie Rhonas.

Am I seeing this wrong? Not that I'll be affected much, won't get to play for ~5 months in about 1 month, but.. feels wrong. All the evaluation metrics for Arena purchases that were based on the assumption 1 rare == 1 mythic are going to be obsolete soon.

Chances are you're seeing it wrong. The set isn't even out yet and there's no way to know which cards are the real bombs. You make it sound like Gideon, Finale and God-Eternal are all going to be bombs, but how can you know for sure? Check out these articles from early RNA.

They're written by some of the best players on the planet, and they're also completely wrong (most of the #2 article, anyway).

Stop worrying about the mythics now and wait till the meta actually shapes up. Don't blame Wizards either. They don't know which cards will be bombs either.

What does this guy mean? You can pay cash to have Mythics become less rare in your opened packs?

I'm not sure what he means by that. You can't pay to have mythics less rare. Everyone is on an even playing field in that respect.
