Quote from IHATEYOUHYTHONIAReally? We are taking to feminism and equality in a card game. A card game where no bias exists. Maybe the problem isn't with magic, wotc, or the product advertisement.
Consider the following: Maybe MOST females would find more joy doing something besides showing up to FNM at your FLGS. Girls know magic exists, in fact every girl I've talked to knows of it. The vast majority simply do not care to waste time or money playing it. Occasionally you'll get the oddball who does and that is GREAT. Good, another PLAYER.
This seems to be just another case of white knights running to the side of their idealistic waifu. Beta tactics, bros.
A woman will win when she draws the right cards and makes the right decisions with the right deck. Just like any other champion or hall of famer. Whether someone has a vagina or a penis is not something to be taken into consideration when crowning a champion.

Quote from Lormador »It's like antiques, except the average person is suspicious that any given piece of old furniture may be a valuable antique. Many antique dealers include making the rounds at garage sales, estate sales, and so forth and acquiring such antiques part of their business model.
I've thought about this a lot, and I used to think buying those cards would have been wrong. However, now I've got a new line.
1. Making a profit is not a priori a bad thing.
2. Any given transaction can, however, be detrimental to various parties involved (or not involved), for example if one party is deceived, coerced, or a third party is damaged (a con, robbery, or environmental damage are examples of these).
Now if I buy a set of Power 9 at a yard sale for $10, I have not solicited the sale. As long as I make no statements as to the value of the cards, my ability to determine their approximate value, or any related question, I am not deceiving the seller. The value of the cards is only a few clicks away on the Internet. Obviously there is no coercion, and no environmental damage results from the transaction. No third party is damaged.
However, the moment the buyer answered the question What do you think these cards are worth? with I don't know instead of I'd prefer not to comment on that, that's deceptive: and it may be a crime.

Quote from feline_o1This is random much, but it was something I noted in another discussion on another board for High Tide, so now I feel compelled to ask it here, what's the worst luck you've ever had playing the deck?
For me, I once casted a Blue Sun's Zenith on myself to draw 10 cards, then I drew 9 lands and a force of will, the likelyhood of me seeing that ever again is so small I doubt I'll ever see it again, but it did happen once, so I'll never forget it.
Quote from The Big Dunkspetitions dont work
especially ones like this.
i'm 100% sure there have been multiple petitions against the reserved list, and each one of them failed.
