Foil filler

My friend just opened what appears to be a foil filler card in place of a rare in Japanese Ravnica booster pack. It's a nice black bordered mirror :) Here are the shots I took with my camera right there before I told him to stash it into a top-loader, not pass thru the crowd for everyone to gape and...

Well, Ralph, sad to see it go, but when you don't feel up to it, it's better not to struggle. Mewthinks, I told you everything in e-mails, but back then you didn't make the decision yet. I would suggest still keeping the site around as it is, not dropping it, because even if it would quickly become ...

I'm back, mostly

OK, folks, sorry for vanishing on those of you who expected some kind of communication from me (I remember that I had to reply to Ralph and Volcanon, and some other folk, but not exactly what). I had a set of stuff pile up one on top of the other, most significant being my dad's death, which forced ...

This will probably make it the first Promo card to hit below the $1 mark :-( Unlikely. The requirements for the stores to comply with are, well, extremely high. They must sell high volumes of WoTC/Hasbro TCGs, RPGs and something third; and must hold at least two high-profile CCG events/month and tw...

I wonder if they will start to incorporate Time Spiral cards going forward? I doubt it.

Dunno about weak (that isn't the point in these after all, and I just am not good at gauging that), but rather low on angels :)

Actually, it's *bad* news for limited. It makes luck mean much more than skill, and it messes up the draft quite well. Like, if you get a booster with a common missing, now it could mean anything -- that they happened to get a Timeshifted card or even a foil rare, making signaling in beginning more...

I've no idea if Timeshifted (offical name for purple reprints) will come in foil, but a little piece regarding foils: Andy Heckt (of Wizards) just posted this on Judge list: Subject: Possible additional rares in TSP boosters FYI - Due to a collation change I wanted you all to be aware that TSP boost...

I called Wizards France in order to obtain the answer. The Playmagic.com coupon will be found exclusively on Wizards stands, during conventions and stuff. They will be handed out to beginners who want to discover the game. Said beginners will then have to bring the coupon to a shop and you guess th...
