I gotta say, there is way too much information way too soon here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/announcing-core-set-2020-and-commander-2019-edition-2019-02-21

It's a good thing you put that inside a spoiler. I'd hate for someone to try to keep it a surprise only to accidentally find out that yes, they are in fact doing precons this year.

Plus the text of the link kinda spoils it anyways.

But to address the original post, I think it is about on par with how far in advance they announce the names of new sets. Maybe they are just trying to get on the same schedule with the supplemental products.

I'll make a note to watch for previews in early August.

I just thought it was funny how little information they conveyed in that announcement. I mean we know that there are 4 decks this time around (again) so that could mean that there are themes instead of colors driving what types of decks. That isn't suprizing as that was what they did with C18 and considering they increased the MSRP... wait, they aren't doing that anymore... Well, looks like we just don't know what we will have to pay, so hopefully you can find it at a big box store instead of having to pay whatever your lgs is going to charge.

I am really just not a fan of some of these choices.

MSRP has been a polite fiction for quite a few years now. How often did anyone buy a booster box at MSRP? How 'bout a FTV set?

I'm also conscious of the support your lgs argument, however I was told by my lgs that the margin on ccg is too low to make a profit on anyhow, they're really making their money of other products, and hoping you'll buy some snacks and drinks while you're at their store

Classic Commander Forum, if anybody tells a subtle joke there's absolutely no way anyone will realize they are joking XD
Because so many of the ridiculous posts on here are dead serious 0.o

Pricing is weird and complicated for sealed products. Artificial demand reliant of good-faith participation literally can't have hard rules, because the socially generated "value" of the product is based on so many things. I'm sad to see prices go up for stores, but hopefully it'll be fine without them raising their prices too much?

Otherwise the entire Commander format is kind of irrelevant to LGS sales. Commander players don't really buy sealed products outside of the yearly Commander precons, and the high spenders buy a full set of 4 or 5 typically. I could, unfortunately, see the precon price going as high as $60 before the backlash was intense enough to make them roll it back. After last year though? Price probably isn't going up.
