I could help too because i sold almost a complete foil set of champions of kamigawa to a friend so he has all the dragons foil but he deffinatly will not get rid of kokusho for 12 and the others for only 4-6. I can also get the rorix and the others but once again he isnt willing to get rid of it at such a low price.

Well, i can work on the foil portuguese ones, but they wont come as cheap as english (this is a problem for all portuguese foils, at least here in Brazil =/).

For the normal dragons, i have quite a few in hands. I'll pm you a list within a week.

Normal: I know that some of my lesser priorities at the moment are bad deals--most clearly Kokusho, Eternal Dragon, and Two Headed seem to be the most glaring pricing issues. I'm probably gonna wait until I have more money to make those purchases. I don't value dragons like a little kid, but I do value them quite closly to ebay closing costs.

Secondly I don't know where you get free money orders...however my bank (and credit union) charges $3 apiece. Money orders from the USPS are a buck apiece.

flatmatt: That price is derived from ebay sales prices--its a few bucks less then closing ebay sales. Generally my prices are directly tied to the MOTL price guide.

Motl Price/Auction Price - Standard Deviation = Buyist Price /Dealer Buy Price

zac : Refer 1st part of post. I have a package deal for the 4 dragons together w/o kokushko to give a bonus for getting them all at once.

Mr. C: Don't worry about it too much, I'm not sure how much money in my treasure chest I can afford to pay for magic.

many banks dont charge for money orders. do you not have "amscot" payday advance centers near you? their whole gimmick is free money orders and they are literally on every corner in tampa.

No I don't have one of those...where I live similiar places are all in the middle of the ghetto area of town and I have no idea if they charge for a money order or not. Frankly speaking I wouldn't want to get shot or even cross the road into the bad section of town. I wouldn't give those scum of the earth my business even if they were on the good side of town. They pray on people who are in bad situations by using usary contracts that are often times not even legal. I feel similiairly about about the rent to own industry in the same area.

i totally agree that those places are scams and i look foward to the day soon when they all go out of business because they are EVERYWHERE in my city and theres no way they can make that much money.
