Awesome! Talk about finding the needle in the haystack. With your luck you need to be buying a lottery ticket! I must say though, Harold McNeill's signature looks like something my 1 year old doodled :-)

Got a few more pieces for my Korean EDH deck. Figured I'd share the deck at this point. The General (not pictured) is Sliver Queen. I'm missing 4 cards in Korean to complete it:

Corpse Dance
Mox Diamond
Noble Benefactor
Stroke of Genius

I can find 3 of them no problem, if I want to overpay for them, but I have yet to be able to find a Korean Noble Benefactor (the Japanese misprint will have to do for now).

It was a struggle to make a somewhat competitive deck in all Korean, and in the end I think I failed miserably. Accepting defeat, I decided to just throw in as much card draw, removal, and 2-3 card combo's that I could think of. The point of EDH after all, is to have fun, and what could be funner than infinitely recurring Priest of Gix with Corpse Dance and saccing him to Altar of Dementia. Well, at least fun for me :P

The blue mana symbol has colorless shading instead of blue shading in the casting cost. Nothing special, as all of them were printed like this as far as I know.

Extinguish from Portal II has this as well, except, I believe, only some are printed like this. I randomly have a misprint one in a box somewhere...Can anyone verify if all of them are like that?

The Extinguish misprint is slightly different, and all the ones I've seen have this misprint, although I haven't looked to hard that see if there are normal ones out there:

Whew.... Whew Whew... Woopeeeee!!!! GRATS! [etc. for a page or two]

Oxes are a little old hat. Along with virgins and first-born. Now how about burning a Black Lotus........

That would be sacrifice.

Here are some detailed pictures...

Here is the story:

I got the empty envelope...I contacted the friend who sent the package and informed him about it. He described the content (how were the cards stored in the envelope). The day after I went to the post office to tell them about their screw up...They opened an investigation case and now....I got a package from the Swiss Mail Services today containing the 2 deckboxes and the cards I lost... pretty lucky...

I guess I have to sacrifice an ox this weekend or something... :wink:
