I have the Drake, but not for trade.
I only had 2: one for me and one for someone in France.

The last one has been gone to US.

I received 3 more from Thailand.

So now I have 3 available.

In Holland i saw one with a well known trader.
He asked 100 euro for it.

I only ask about $10 cardvalue for this one. A big difference.

Hi.
Can you verify if possible,what was the Number of Phyrexian Rager CardZ
made for the Magazine NO2,as something starts to hitch my back on that particular issue,I will update that post soon,I need to dig few things First ;-)
EDIT:
Henri.
I went through the "Time Spiral" Back to August 2002:
http://www.flaminio.com/ub/UltraBoard.c ... 1&SID=7407
At that time the Only Thaï Member who could get those was Mirri.I do remember the Extreme Rarity of the Silver Drake as I could get Only one and that I didn't pay 10$ at that time(Read the Topic),through him,I did get the next month Just an Extra Silver Drake for another Member,and,I could Only catch 3 Phyrexian Rager(2 went to Members).So,these 2 Promos cards were made in the 1000 ranch,I do remember from E-Mails with Mirri,that he told me that the Magazine Vol.1.0 didn't sell very well in Thaïland and that they destroyed a lot of the magazines,same thing for Issue 2.So my question is why almost 5 years after,there's still so many Phyrexian Ranger available when they were not when the magazine was available?Is the Printing of Vol.5.0 much more than the 1000 of the Issue 1?Did they get back so much of the 1000 (?) Vol.5.0 ,after that didn't sell,that they have so much in stock now?Why this do not apply to the Silver Drake,I know less than 7 Collectors owning them???To finish is is possible that they have reprinted the Phyrexian,but why not the Silver Drake?That's a bunch of questions that raise to my mind right now,I really hope that you can help,because,you are the Only"Dutch/Thaï" Member of this forum.Thanks. ;-)

Alexis,

From december 11th 2005 till february 7th 2006 i was in Thailand.
I know some shops in Bangkok where i play a lot.
When i played at the pre-release i met a Thai guy who had 3 Silver Drakes.
In Thailand people don't think a lot of it since they see it as a common.
He sold me 2 of the 3, one is in my collection and the other one i've sent to you.
At the end of january i did see all the CardZ magazines in a shop. Since i did know that you wanted it I tried everything, so that they would sell the magazines to mee. I couldn't buy it since they said the copies with the Rager and the Drake where the only one they had. The other ones i could buy, but i was only interested in the copies with the Rager and Drake promo.
In the beginning of february (or the end of january) i went again to the shop. The owner told me that she found one copy of the Rager. I bought that one so i was happy to have both the promos.
The last weekend before i went back to Holland i was again at the shop, because i wanted to say goodbye to some Magic friends.
The shop owner asked me if i was interested in some more Rager promos and since i knew that some people where interested i told her that i was intested.
At that time she told me she had as much as i wanted. She had 100 copies.
I didn't want them all, since i wasn't sure what to do. I did know some people who wanted the promo, but 100 was to much.
I bought about 50 from her.

When i was back in Holland i chatted to another woman from Thailand who also had a shop in Bangkok, but she closed it about 2 years ago.
I told her the story and she told me that the owner of the shop was the owner of the former magazine CardZ.
If I knew that before I think i could also get more of the Silver Drake.

At this moment I think there are two possabillaties:
1. they still had a lot of Rager and Drake promos.
2. they reprinted the Rager promos, but to do that in the last days i was in Bangkok would be risky for them.

When i'm back in Thailand, I will visit the shop again and ask for the total story of the promos, but that will be next year december.

dragsamou: Why do you say the card Phyrexian Rager was released with issue #2 of The Cardz? The magazine says Vol. 5.0.
