Chinese Portal Basics

Post by BillBo » Wed Oct 30, 2013 2:55 pm

I recently say pictures of new art work used for the Chinese Portal basic lands (except for Swamps). Anyone on this forum who has those for trade or can give a ballpark as to their going price? Many thx in advance!
I collect land cards, just that.

Hello BillBo and it's nice to have (yet) another land collector here,

I collect promo lands (and oddballs like these), I happily stopped upkeeping my regular basic land collection five years back (and hadn't bought Edgar basics >:-( ). There's just so many basics nowadays.

The simplified chinese basic lands can be bought every now and then as a set. For singles they come in two rarities. Pic A on all was availlable in starters and can be found around 5-10 €, but the other three had to be opened from boosters and nm starts from 15 € each.

MKM had two full sets (20 lands, including Swamps) at 220 €, but those sold and no new sellers have turned up since. I would guess that 250 € would be the new price.

I would guess that several memebers here have some availlable and if anybody has US price info (if it differs from EU) I would also be interested. These are some of my favourite 'basic' lands outside GURUs.

Yup, and it just so happened that someone in Taiwan I sold a judge foil to happens to be land collector as well (but only basics) and has one spare island and one swamp to trade.

Tervetuola (if I recall it correctly ;-) Tuomas!

Can you identify what is the picture A on the two scans below? Or do you happen to know where I'd find some additional information on that release?

According to the Taiwanese collector the five basics you would pull from a starter deck are
