    I am in on the 3rd for wisdom teeth. So I'm happy because I get guilt-free time off work to sit back and watch a lot of the matches from the comfort of my sofa.

    Yeah, I always felt the most fun way to discover a new set was ripping into that first sealed set. Followed by having to stop and read you opponents cards mid match.

    It's kind of a conundrum here though, the digital nature makes spoiler hype easy, and in demand. Yet formats like sealed gauntlet are perfect for discovering as you play. Unlimited time to read over your cards and think, takes out the biggest disadvantage to doing it that way.

    Makes me wonder whether the Invitational itself will be played using Set 4 or not...

    Shame. Would love to see them surprise the players... "Oh, by the way... Forget about constructed. You're actually playing set 4 draft! Good luck..."

    Rather than piss everyone off, I'd imagine it'd annoy a small number of people (Those playing in the tourney) while giving much enjoyment to a larger number (Those watching the tourney).

    You can't know that unless the players said so. The players knows if they will play 3-3-3 draft or 4-4-3 draft. The rules say 15 days notice.

    For constructed I can imagine them running with set 3. For draft it would be interesting for the viewers to throw in set 4.

    Now that would be the ultimate Limited challenge. Put all the players in a room with no outside communication. Give everyone 1-2 hours to browse through the new set. They then come onto the Invitational stage and Draft it live for the first time...

    Whoever wins that Draft can be called the true Limited master!
