Re: Librarities The Program.Last Update 02/05/2016

Thanks for the encouragement on this project, it does seem to be quite unused at times but I understand why. Gary Hi Gary, (1) Please can I add my encouragement and gratitude for your project. Even if I only get back to organize my tips/tokens once a year, it's still a warm feeling all the time to ...

Re: Eternal Masters Tokens Back

I got hold of about 300 EMA tokens from a shop, and found 113 unique ones. I was able to do the jigsaw but I am still missing eight pieces: Location / Top / Right / Bottom / Left (1,3) BLANK / King Eternal have a will at all? / to inform you that / treacherous brow, she has forced (7,11) will not re...

useful link

There's now a good link for this kind of information at the mothership http://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/products/card-set-archive. Click on the sets, to get information about what languages are available. Not all sets are clickable unfortunately, but for those that do have a link, the language ...

Tips & Tokens

Most of my chinese cards are traditional, but i am told that Tips & Tokens these days appear in both. I suppose that's logical, but argh, argh, argh! :)

thanks for this

Thanks for this scholarship in the finest traditions of Magiclibrarities! :D Please can you finish it off? As a resident of Hong Kong, at the interface between Traditional & Simplified versions, I really ought to take more interest. Historically, I have just tracked whether a card in my collection i...

Theros spreadsheet

Following Clay's invitation, I have checked his Theros worksheet. It's very naughty that this tiny group has evolved two different formats. Ideally, one owner should transpose theirs (a functional supported in Excel by Paste Special). I will leave it to you two to resolve between you. Overall, I pre...

Hi Clay, Yes I will look at your spreadsheet, but you need to give me access. Thanks for the offer of duplicates. I have a load of duplicate tokens, but haven't generally retained duplicate tips. The English language sets I get are the US ones, so not the same as what appears in Britain. Also I have...

Well, I really got behind on this but thanks to inspiration from Alien_Starfighter_Pilot (Clay) here is an update. Clay has provided one of the only to date complete sheets, assuming 121 combos would be a complete 11x11 sheet and only one sheet template was used in the set of Born of the gods. Earl...

This is the most updated list I have for English Innistrad. I have not received any more input from European collectors about EU combos. http://www.mediafire.com/?lovqagae6wrk6qx Gary Hi Gary, Thanks for the recent work on ISD tips & tokens. I have been very busy with work, and alas am likely to re...

"card" or "card" or "card"?

Reference the contents of a box I documented the following: 20 duel sided cards erm, I thought there was one in every pack? He's talking about (a) distinct logical cards rather than (b) physical objects. We should have proper terminology to distinguish between these concepts, and also (c) the separ...

The uncommons jigsaw

Fellow Librariticians, 10 of the last 14 sets have had 60 uncommons. (The other 4 were small expansions and just had 40.) I would like to know what the pattern is for 60. It's unlikely to be as pretty as what they do for 101 commons, which appears in all the last 7 Core and September major expansion...

60/121 = ?

hehe when my two cases arrive Yum, data! Data! Is there any chance, Mr Large Hadron Collider, that you could record the order of the uncommons in each booster in order? I am interested to know how WotC get 60 different uncommons out of presumably just one sheet of 121 uncommon cards. 60 is the usua...

Card frequencies

We now know that there are 20 Double-Faced Cards (DFCs) in Innistrad. They break down as 1 Mythic = Garruk, 6 Rares, 7 Uncommons & 6 Commons. Although they all appear on 1 sheet, the rarity is surely a guide to the frequency of the card (unlike in the recent Commander set where the rarity colour was...
