  • posted a message on eBay Flash Sale Thread
    eBay has a coupon code of PICKYOURCARD good for 10% off, but ONLY if you use the eBay app. In addition, eBay currently has a 5% eBay bucks promo, and they stack, and the eBay bucks uses 5% back from the original full price, IE, buy something for $100, pay $90, but get $5 in eBay bucks.

    Was able to get boxes of Ikoria for $82.80 after coupon (originally $92) and it came with $4.60 in eBay bucks to boot.

    Also saw a seller with a set of the new Commander 2020 decks for $150. So $135 after coupon ($27 apiece) and get $7.50 in bucks.

    Also saw a flash sale on the 4 brawl decks for $60, so $54 is $13.50 apiece, which is quite good for 4 Shock lands, Smothering Tithe, Korvold, and 4x Arcane Signets which are $6.50 apiece by themselves.

    PICKYOURCARD expires TODAY (3/24) at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific, so gotta be quick.

    I don't know what to say, except "wtf I want to see the art".




    Hopefully Wizards makes the rest of the Jug Band as well.

    Secret Lair "Ultimate Edition"
    Doesn't contain prior secret lairs.
    Seems like a fail in marketing.



    No definition of ultimate is synonymous with anthology.

    Wizards: “Wizards does not recognize the secondary market”.

    Also Wizards: “here’s 5 foil snow lands for $30. Here’s 5 nonfoil fetchlands for more than $165”.

    GTFOH.

    At prices north of $165, would it REALLY have been too much to at least get 2 sweet basics paired with each fetch of the type they could search for?

    They made the effort to do each one by a different artist, and each one on a different recognizable plane, so they should have expanded upon that with each pair of basics, IE Seb does a sweet Ixilan Forest and Island.

    There is one error in a card’s name (Whiptongue Frog) that’s cast a degree of doubt on this list, but if fake, a lot of work went into it.

    Harmonic Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, and Sinew Sliver!! Whoop! Whoop!

    I’ll be interested in tracking down a copy of each, especially if they had new art! Harmonic Sliver is somewhat challenging to find nm/m foils Of.


    My understanding is the art is of the most recently printed art. So... no new art.


    Also... Storm Crow and Chimney Imp?....



    Because Wizards thinks it’s better to give us meme cards, rather than something we might actually want and use. And this is in a set that costs nearly double the cost of a traditional booster.

  • posted a message on Mystery Booster complete list of foils
    Massively underwhelming (on the whole, there are of course a dozen or two nice cards), in my opinion.


    From a personal standpoint, I run just 16 of these cards, and I have 27 EDH decks. Of those 16 only one (Wear/Tear) is in more than one deck, IE no multi-deck staples.

  • posted a message on enchantement lifelink problem
    You gain 6 life, as multiple instances of lifelink are redundant (just like multiple instances of flying or trample). However, do note there are some older creatures that say “when this creature does damage, gain that much life”. So while that FUNCTIONS as lifelink, it’s not ACTUALLY lifelink, so if it then gained lifelink it would essentially gain double life.

    Why would they?




    Because that way they finally will give us a more that just dencent product. The last good value out of the box product we got was premium deck series graveborn. No wonder they discontinued that too much good value in there, it was indecent. By the way Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is like 5 bucks.



    Any point you’re trying to make is moot after a ridiculous statement like that.

    Graveborn was 2011, so you’re discounting the ENTIRE LINE of Commander decks (36x), as well as Challenger decks (8x), Guild kits (10x), FTV Angels, Legends, and Realms, and Brawl decks (4x) among others. If you can’t find value in any of those OVER SIXTY products, that’s entirely on you, and your ability to judge products is questionable at best, and laughable at worst. Why would you continue to participate in a hobby you’ve been unable to derive value in going on 9 years?


    So I must leave magic because you say so? Because I want more valuable cards in the non booster products?. Or is because you accept everything they do even this inclusion trend thats has nothing to do with make more people play the game. You want more people to play the game? Lower the cost of entry. Or perhaps you are happy playing your "exclusive" expensive game with the same dudes over and over again.



    Show me where I said you need to leave Magic? I’ll wait here while you point it out. Oh, I didn’t. I asked a very legitimate question (still unanswered), and that is why continue playing a game or supporting a company that hasn’t satisfied you in nearly a decade? YOU made the statement that there is no value in over 60 products.

    I never mentioned anything about “exclusive” or
    “expensive” products. What I listed were $20 brawl decks, $20 guild kits, and $30-$40 Commander decks. Each one of those featured complete decks. So, to recap your incompetence:

    — You claim no sealed products of value in 9 years (hilariously false, to the point of embarrassment)
    — made a claim I told you to quit (also false)
    — made a claim that $20-$40 completely playable out of the box products are somehow the playground of the wealthy. (false again. Three strikes, you’re out.)


    Does that sum up your foolishness, or is there still more? You’re terrible at this.

    Greed, Necropotence. Wheel of Fortune (or other Wheel effects) is good because you can use Windgrace to get back any lands from your GY. Harmonize


    I don’t think what you want exists if you’re ruling out card draw that relates to creature power, which is pretty significant to disregard.

    Those new 37 cards are just a way to grab some money from the commander players right?



    Commander players will buy it regardless, so long as the reprints are good. Theme = heavy tribal, and heavy tribal is very much a Commander thing.
