    Now, can someone tell me what the hell is going on with Fortune Thief? I don't think I've seen a single person able to explain why it got bought out! Grin

    Well, I figured Ali from Cairo must have spiked. So I looked it up and sure enough, Ali basically doubled in price, which would make Fortune Thief a budget version.

    Curious to know what else you found in your cards.

    This program is really useful. I used it recently to sell off a bunch of cards, but for you, I could see it as being very helpful in identifying cards of value. You can sign up for just a month and use the program.

    Well, after finally getting a hold of someone, I was told that they would send me my cards back as long as I paid for return shipping. I paid them via Paypal to return my cards and haven't heard anything in a week. I even sent a email or two with no reply.

    So not only do they have all my cards, they have the money I sent them to return my cards too...

    Didn't see much, but here is what I saw that has some value.

    Some commons that are worth something I see are

    The sad news is that the majority of the cards aren't worth anything really. I started playing around the same time you did, and my collection has a lot of the similar cards you have in yours. Had we started playing the game a year or so earlier, we would have some serious value in our cards.

    Mailed in a bunch of cards to magic.cards a few weeks ago. They got them and said that basically every single card I sent them was in a lower condition then I sent them in as. This cut about $20 out of what I was expecting to get out of the cards. A lot of which were cards for around $0.50 or less and many at bulk rates of $0.10.

    Now, I've tried to get in contact with them and the number available on magic.cards always goes to voice mail. I called their store Universe Games and spoke with someone who said the person that handles the buying is out and would get back to me. I never received a response.

    What are me options here? They are in MN and I am in PA, so I can't just walk in an demand my cards back.

    It's B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster) finally in black-bordered world.

    I'm not a fan of having a new mechanic every single set, but I love the prospect of being able to have a B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster) in a non-Unset.

    I agree, the old art is better. The new are is basically "Insert blue dude and call it a day".

    I think www.magiccards.info is the closest thing to what you are looking for.

    Oh, I know this won't see much use, I was simply referring to the absolute ridiculousness that is Eldrazi. To put it this way, my first game of magic I ever saw was someone winning on turn 4 because he was able to drop Emrakul with tooth and claw. (Don't ask what format. As I said, first game I saw)

    It was Modern, I assure you. I've even played against that kind of deck before. The combo with Tooth and Nail and Xenagos, God of Revels is strong, but not exactly an unstoppable juggernaut. Really, Eldrazi aren't that much different from other big creatures in Magic, except that they happen to be the biggest right now. Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is anything but broken because it costs 15 freaking mana. The only way to use it is to jump through the hoops to trick it out or ramp tons of mana. The only reason anyone does it is because the payoff is good enough. If Emrakul was slightly worse (such as lacking annihilator or its protection), it would end up on the junk pile next to poor Blightsteel Colossus.

    Or the fact that you get an extra turn when cast, makes the card damn good. As for Blightsteel, that's a seriously good card. Heck, it's a $25 card that is a finisher in Vintage with Tinker and is the corner stone in a fringe deck in Modern via Shape Anew.

  • posted a message on Quit Speculation ION Scanner and Trader Tools
    Well so I signed up for a month to see how this worked out. A membership for a month is $12 and gives you access to both traders tools and the ion scanner. With the two I was able to dump a lot of random cards. I think I walked away with around $250 from it and mostly sold cards for under a dollar. But the upside is when you scan a card, it will show you who is buying the card for the most and will also add the card to a list that you can later import into traders tools. From there you can automatically have your list of cards sent off to various shop's buylists. If I had to enter every card in by hand and then search out buylist after buylist for the top price, I would still be at it.

    So all in all, it was a nice tool to use and I would recommend it to people looking to significantly thin their collects or someone that wants to sell their whole collection. It really is a time saver.
