Today, Wizards of the Coast have announced that they will no longer be giving manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRPs) for Magic: The Gathering products starting with the upcoming Magic set War of the Spark.


"We're making this change to streamline our communications around new products," DailyMTG content manager Blake Rasmussen wrote. "MSRPs are not favored in many parts of the world, which led to some confusion among our global player base. As Magic becomes more and more global, it makes less and less sense to suggest a retail price."

"Don't worry—this isn't some big disruption to our products or the company," he assured. "We believe the elimination of MSRP will simply help us communicate better to our players and the places where those players shop."

Now, it will be harder for players to determine the ideal prices for sealed Magic premium products. Amazon, Walmart, and eBay sellers probably won't get affected much but hopefully, this won't affect local game stores.

War of the Spark, the 81st Magic: The Gathering expansion, will be released on May 3.
