Sick. I was quite happy with the contents of the Helvault (unlike many other people, I didn't expect insane things - just typical promotional items), but I was also a little sad that the oversized cards were not foil like Commander ones. Promos are usually foil, it's just cooler and more promo-ish t...

Karmacrow is MKM's own account, so I wouldn't expect problems from them. ;)

If by "Godpack" you mean a booster filled with the wrong quantity of rares, foils and other goodies, I once witnessed the opening of a Alara Reborn box that had 8 rares per pack. GP Paris 2010 - PTQ Few players got Zendikar pack with 7-8 Rares/mythic cards. The HJ decided to give them anothers boos...

This order was top notch. The cards were all graded perfectly, and the speed of delivery was less than a week, which is great for global shipments. I got a some of the Salvat cards I was looking for, MINT, and I would 100% recommend them to anyone on here. Jason I'm glad my recommendation led you t...

Is anybody still maintaining this topic? I'd like to add http://masmagic.es/ to the list. It doesn't have a huge stock, but I found some cards that were real pain in the you-know-where for me to find, so it all depends on what are you looking for... The customer service was probably the best I have ...

In all honesty I used to be deathly afraid of women/people in general knowing about my hobby. Who didn't? ;) I used to hide from my non-Magic friends the fact that I like to play with pieces of cardboard with dragons and stuff on them, I thought it would have sounded silly. At some point, however, ...

I'm so happy for you!
Such milestones always give a boost of positive energy that helps to keep going further and further and I hope that now that you proved to yourself that it is possible, you'll have even more fun, and more strength, completing the remaining sets.

Congratulations!

I investigated this a bit when I first saw Spanish "planeswalker" (as I remembered having seen the same card earlier as "caminante de planos") and this change (that happened to all translations* after Lorwyn) was imposed by Wizards due to their new marketing policy. Planeswalkers are now the central...

These buy-a-boxes are sneaky cards... I once found one in a box of GP promos (while distributing them at a GP; technially it wasn't factory sealed - wasn't sealed at all - but definitely "factory-original"). But Italian card in Japan... Well, that's weird, but on the other hand, they're probably pri...

I don't think the owner will ever sell it, but I figured out it's so amazing that it's worth sharing with the biggest fan of Shivan Dragon: http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/270571_10150234483309962_542739961_7565630_620440_n.jpg My friend has been cross-stitching it for more than three...
