    I don't sell cards on eBay due to fees and shipping alone. I've already sold two boxes via preorder on craigslist locally for $250 each, with $25 nonrefundable deposits. eBay is for buying, not selling. The table is heavily tilted towards buyers and it makes no sense to sell things on eBay if you have a healthy local market for said items. I can get right around eBay prices for most stuff I sell via craigslist.

    I read SaffronOlive's article, and to be realistic, it means nothing unless we know how large the original print runs are. You can't throw numbers out there and say "omg market is going to crash" when you have no context. 10,000 goyfs sounds like a lot, but if there's already 150,000 goyfs out there between Future Sight and MM13, it's not really that many, is it? I mean, hell 20% might have a decent impact, but to bring prices down to "crash" levels on the best material, you'd have to dilute populations by 50% or more.

    Go ahead, keep explaining how stupid I am for buying boxes at $200 and reselling them at $250. I'll keep making money. Sell four cases, one is free!
    Wait, so you have already pre-sold something that you preordered, that has not even come in yet? Plus the $25 nonrefundable.



    This is certainly not stupid, this feels more than a little unethical to be honest.



    Never invest in the commodities market.

    Just find a basic land, and make your own proxy by writing on the FRONT of it. When you draw it, play the damaged card.

    There isn't that much to do with the card. It practically only fits in a instant/sorcery theme, preferably ones that trinket and cost 1 mana and are accompanied with the usual suspects that do stuff with these instants & sorceries like Pyromancers

    Awesome topic idea though!


    You should check out the previous CDCC seasons. They are a lot of fun. http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/casual-related-formats/151881-casual-deck-construction-contest-winner-season-1

  • posted a message on What kind of lands do you enjoy playing with?
    Any of the older lands that have text. I never liked how they changed to just that huge mana symbol. So I tend to just play with all those older lands, but Alpha/Beta would be at the top of the list.

    Some other cards to consider are Kitchen Finks +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters cancel each other out.

    Spike Feeder, with scales it comes into play with 3 counters, and it's ability to transfer can be used on it's self to add counters.

    Triskelion is good because it has the ability to get past anything that might stop you from attacking.


    I dunno, it seems like Finks wouldn't be used to the best of their ability in this deck. I'm really into making a card reach its absolute potential, not about throwing in good stuff because good stuff. (Thrummingbird and Prophet of Kruphix exluded Wink )

    Spike Feeder is a good one! I might add this.

    Triskelion is interesting but a bit off-base for this deck. Doesn't really fit the flavor, for me. Thanks though 8)


    The point of finks is to keep gaining life off it. It will never die unless you can't put a +1/+1 counter on it. It fits the deck very well actually. I play it in my Hardened Scales deck.

    Also, Trisk is a good option to get around stuff like Fog or other cards that prevent you from doing damage in combat. If someone plays Magus of the Moat the best you can hope for is winning with Thrummingbird. It all depends on what you expect to face when you play this deck.
