    posted a message on Just bought a Mind Seize; now what?
    glad I found this thread, I was wondering the same thing- im still not sure if I wanna crack it, but the sealed thing doesn't seem to be holding a huge premium right now- this is the first commander stuff ive bought, will WOTC/HASBRO keep printing them as they said, or will this actually become rare and worth something down the line?

    posted a message on Smoky cards
    I am horribly allergic to cigarette smoke, so I will actually throw away cards that stink too much.

    however, one way I have found to make them not stink- take them out of their sleeves and line them, one deep, in a Tupperware container. on top of the cards, put a dryer sheet or two (depending on the # of cards) then put something slightly heavy that wont cause bending to the cards (I use the rigid toploaders) on top of the dryer sheets. close the Tupperware up and leave it for a week. the dryer sheets suck up the smoke smell. granted your cards will smell like bounce for a little while, but the smell fades, and when it does, the cards should be smoke-free.

    posted a message on Does anyone know where I can find a Theros checklist?
    Im looking for a simple list of the card names, in numerical, or even alphabetical, order. Every list I find has complete card descriptions, which I don't need. I am trying to build the set, and I just need to have a list that I can keep checking stuff off of as I get them in.

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks!

    posted a message on What is happening with the prices on this forum???
    it takes some work to buy and sell. I sell here some, and on ebay some. I notice I generally get a bit higher prices on ebay- but I have to deal with ebay fees. If you want to open a post and automatically see everything at the price you are willing to pay, that probably wont happen.

    If you don't mind searching a bit, and negotiating with people, you can find great deals here. Ive built all of my standard decks almost exclusively here, and I never felt like I overpaid.

    If you need money NOW, here isn't the place, as people can afford to be picky. But if you don't mind working at it a bit, and negotiating, you can do just fine buying, or selling here

    posted a message on Bad Buyer eBay Help!
    sellers can no longer leave negative feedback for buyers on ebay, so a lot of sellers will leave a positive ranking but will slam the person in the comments section- its really the only way to tell sellers that a buyer is a joke.

    id relist them and block him as a bidder- but make sure you give him the time you said you would before you do so

    posted a message on Box of 5th Dawn- 99 bucks. Good buy?
    after all that- the guy had the sign mislabelled- it was actually 2011 core, not 5th dawn, so i struck out

    did manage to get 12 loose zendikar packs for 3 bucks each, but didnt hit anything interesting really, except the lands...

    was thinking about doing that as well, not sure if im gonna open it (I play mostly standard, so the stuff wouldnt help me directly) or if I just sell it for a quick 50-60 buck profit

    The local sports card store has one, 99 bucks. Its sealed

    Good deal? I looked up the list and it seems there is some nice stuff in there, but Im not sure- should I pull the trigger?

    posted a message on Standard Boros Deck Question
    Im running a pretty standard Boros deck (although its still in the works)

    Here's my question

    4x Stromkirk Nobles- or 4x Legion Loyalists- or 2x of each- or 4x of both?

    Also would love to hear your logic behind the advice you give me

    Thanks in advance for any feedback

    posted a message on Are all uncommons created equal?
    Not in terms of play value (they obviously arent) but in terms of production.

    I ask this because Ive bought the equivalent of about 3 booster boxes worth of gatecrash- and havent pulled a single skullcrack

    4 aurelias, no problem. 13 shock lands- yup
    even one skullcrack- nope...

    just wondering if there are "levels" to uncommons- are some more rare than others?

    Thanks

    posted a message on Need some major help
    Ive mostly played multiplayer, anything goes Magic for as long as Ive played the game- well, my buddies want to start FNM, so that means delving into the realm of competitive decks. So- what Im looking to build is a white/red creature/direct damage deck- and I have no idea at all where to start, so if there is some sort of pre-set deck of this type, that would be great, if not, I could definately use some guidance.

    Thanks, and sorry if this is the wrong place to post- this whole competitive thing is brand new to me, even though Ive been playing the game since Unlimited

    posted a message on Would you pay extra for Gem Mint cards?
    depends- on older stuff, yeah, id pay a bit of a premium. for new stuff- nope- odds are good i can get the newer stuff unplayed cheaper online than at most stores, although my local store does a good job of keeping the prices comparable to online. they are the exception, not the rule, though

    posted a message on G/R Speed- need some ideas
    Ive been out of the game for a while- jumping back in, and trying to rebuild/build a good red/green speed deck

    Format isnt important- anything goes (I guess that makes it legacy?)

    Obviously, the moxen, lotus are nice options, but Im trying to keep it realistic.

    Heres what Ive got (and know I need to add in)

    Id love some advice on how to make it even better
    Thanks

    posted a message on 7000 UC and C
    no clue- me, and most people, probably wouldnt pay too much for a big batch of unlisted stuff- most people have enough commons and such already

    posted a message on 7000 UC and C
    theres really two ways to do this as I see it. one, although a lot more time intensive, may make you more money, and that is seperate out playsets of fairly desired cards, and sell them individually. It will take a lot more work on your part, but you may make some decent money, depending on what commons and uncommons you have.
    The other way is to sell the whole lot in bulk- you will get a lot less for it than if you broke down the stuff, especially if you dont list what is in the lot- but it will save you a ton of time, and if just getting rid of it is more important to you than making top dollar, thats the way to go

    posted a message on how much?????
    with no info besides that, i dont know if anyone could make a good guess. Id advise you to either list the cards, or check one of the price sites, or ebay, to get a feel for what the cards are worth.

    posted a message on What's the most I could get for 2 Sea Drakes?
    id say that, based on sales- roughly 20-25 on ebay. You might get a few bucks less here- I know that on other forums, sellers typically sell a few bucks below ebay to avoid the hassle and fees, so Id guess that is probably standard practice here as well

    posted a message on Greetings to all!
    Hey everyone- my name is Ed (hence my user name, arent I creative?)
    I played back from Unlimited through the Masques block, and then walked away from the game, selling off everything I had.
    I was given some cards by a friend recently, and it re-ignited my interest in the game. So, just wanted to say hello- Ive got my weak trade list posted, and am starting to slowly build some decks and pick up some cards. Looking forward to buying/selling/trading/talking with everyone.
    Thanks to the mods and the site owner for having this available, and again, looking forward to meeting everyone!
