Awesome Pics of Awesome Cards

  • @naixin Where do you find your Chinese cards? Mind helping me find a Chinese foil and Chinese nonfoil Masters 25, and a Chinese Weatherlight Doomsday? I need 'em for my global set.

  • @13nova I usually use a combination of eBay, MKM, and taobao. MKM I use dean in the high end groups as a proxy buyer and for taobao I use basetao as a taobao agent.

    I'm not familiar with that platform. Care to message me info?

  • @13nova taobao is basically chinese eBay. They only ship to China so you need an “agent” to buy as a proxy. There are many taobao agents and i use one called “basetao”.

  • Dear all,

    For my 1st post on the Mana Drain I'd like to share a picture of my Lapis Lazuli Vault deck in Old School 95 format. I need to "replace" the 4 Alpha Power Sink with 4 Korean and the Mana Vaults (2 Revised and the 1 Unlimited) for Korean. For the Unlimited Power and the Italian Tabernacle well... Don't judge me !

    This is what I played to a 2nd place Skype tournament this month. If you're not familiar with it, check the timewalking blog !

  • @monkey_island Your opponent got very lucky. But shh.. Let's not ruin his moment of glory. And good eye on the foreign cards. IVth BB Jap or Korean are the best :)

    Korean is great :)

    What do you guys think about alters?

    Do you like them/collect them/hate them?

    I like them now (did not like them some time ago) but only if it is not fully covering the image. For me it's important that the original image of the cards is maintained and you can identify it.

  • @peach I have dredge in the process of being altered; all still identifiable as what they are. two of my bazaars have troll and thug as the guy with the cart and people don't even notice at first.

  • @hardy I don't like white borders either, but why put the nice black bordered cards in sleeves with white backgrounds? Isn't this basically adding an additional ugly white board to black bordered beauties?

  • @chase_dagger It's to accentuate alpha corners. Plus a lot of people use black sleeves, and accidental theft of your opponents creatures (because Animate Dead) is a real thing. Especially when you've had a couple of beers. A third reason is that beat up edges look more crisp.
