Honestly? The art is fantastic and I love that the art is reversible on specific cards. As a dedicated cat dad it's great to see the representation. However, that $150 price tag definitely has me hesitating on pulling the trigger. That said, this deck is a true rarity. The MTG Cats and Dogs deck won't be available forever, so if you desire a Secret Lair Commander deck then now is the time to act.
