Pauper Review: Dominaria
The Limited Archetypes of Dominaria
  • posted a message on Biiterblossom Unbanned in Modern - what's the cap going to be?
    Whatever didn't sell will probably get held back by dealers until the market resets. Might be some snipe chances on eBay if someone decides to sell and hasn't seen the announcement. Other than that...yeah, it could get awkward

    Any card that's played in any format for any reason would be worth picking up for the pimp factor

    Lol seeing how Eureka, Chains and Abyss are my only Legends cards, I'd be happy to see them jump. They are already pretty high, though, I agree. I'd be surprised to see them pull more than they already do...particularly the black ones

  • posted a message on Seek advice: Should I sell?
    I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned to you that you'd get 25% extra if you're trading with SCG rather than selling. That would make your $140 >>> $175, or $167.50 if you don't trade the Demonic Tutor. If you keep that Tutor and buy only one of the new ones at the sale price instead of two, your deck will also be $21.24 less, or $162.22 + shipping. If you're looking at $10 shipping like Ben said, you'd be spending about $5 out of pocket for your deck rather than the $133 out of pocket that you quoted initially. That's a big difference.

    That said, if you have people to play the deck with and think you'll have fun, do it. It bums me out that I have some really fun decks but only a couple friends to play with a few times a year. If you have the chance to actually play Magic, take it Smile

  • posted a message on I just won an P9 ebay auction but the price make no sense...what to do...
    Yeah, typos and peculiar titles are a value-conscious buyer's best friends. Let us know if the auctions pan out for you! There's always the chance that the seller will take the negative feedback on the sale if he thinks it's outrageously low (which it is), but at the very worst you'll get your money back from PP

  • posted a message on Duals - condition and pricing
    Just looking at your replies, you have NM, SP, LP, MP, HP, G, EX, P, and DAM...essentially everyone is speaking a different language to you. Many stores have their own scales, as do many grading sites and trading sites. My future advice would be to pick one scale, learn it well, and direct buyers to its specifics if they have questions.

    And I would recommend hi-res scans (front and back) for each and every dual you buy or sell Smile that said, I think the OP got a deal and could easily make at least $50 if he flipped the cards without any compensation from the original seller

    I think Liliana has already had her spike. She's over $150 already. Snaps probably has some room for a jump, though

    I'm horrendous at keeping product sealed. This would just be a mad pack-cracking frenzy for me, which likely isn't in my best financial interest

  • posted a message on Lowest value set
    Fallen Empires and Homelands were total jank. My understanding is that somebody somewhere decided that the power level of a set like Legends was out of control and they started to tone things down instead of just printing stuff that looked or sounded cool out of sheer principle. The Dark was sort of in the middle of that power level conundrum; it had a few winners like Ball Lightning and Maze of Ith, but then there was Sorrow's Path and apparently Sisters of the Flame at rare. Then you got the nadir in Fallen Empires and Homelands followed by what was considered a resurgence in Ice Age and Alliances and the beginning of my personal favorite run of sets from Mirage through Urza's block (which, as was previously stated, led to another toning down of power levels since R&D got awfully excited and dreamed awfully big at that point)

  • posted a message on Why aren't prices listed in the "Sales Lot" forum more competitive?
    Some people like dealing with other players instead of websites.

    The only things I post in the Sales Lot are A) Eternal staples and B) Brand-new or suddenly popular Standard cards. I can move them easily and get a price close to what I'd get on Ebay without the fees. That usually works out to a little below the "low" price of cards on TCGplayer and is fine by me. When I buy, I look for something similar. I try to meet sellers somewhere between that "low" price and buylist prices. They get more cash, fee-free, than they would elsewhere and I save a few bucks. It's not worth the time that often, but for larger staples it can be

    Quote from Master Moja
    The best part about this card is that she can practically swap spots with Sharuum and require only a few changes to the deck list in order to be good to go. I like her a lot. A lot, a lot. She makes so many fun interactions. Darksteel Forge becomes an absolute monstrosity...

    But then the Forge can get hit by Path or something else that otherwise couldn't touch it...and then your artifacts are vulnerable again. Double-edged sword there

    They're still selling ~100 on EBay with a few outliers. 300 is silly

    I bought 20 Hellriders at $0.99 apiece when DKA released. Then it spiked to 10+ when I was away from home doing AF training, and by the time I got home to my binder it was $3. I'm still ahead, but definitely missed my prime selling time. Hard market to figure out.
