New to magic and want stuff
« on: August 20, 2009, 07:09:33 AM »
Hey, decided to dabble into magic, havent even bought a card yet or looked at the rules apart from what friends have explained.

Anyway, i want some M10. Does anyone have any for sale or trade for LOTR TCG?

Any help or replies would be appreciated. I have no knowledge of mechanisms or decks so individual cards arent much use, looking for bulk (not thousands!) really.

Thanks

I can probably sell you all my stuff, commons, and uncommons and all for a reasonable price! I have tons. The shipping will probably be more than the cost of the cards. PM me if you want! :D

Interested in alara stuff NB, the others are due for rotation very shortly so not so much. What you got and what do you want for it?

Cheers

I might have some stuff you want, lem0n, but I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for. I play only standard (and EDH! :) ), and given that I started last year in Alara block, I have quote a few cards lying around which you might find useful. In general, I'd rather trade than sell. But what exactly do you want? Unfortunately, your request is a little bit vague!

See the off topic post in your DC thread for basic info! Im playing standard, so am after M10, conflux and alara cards.

At the moment im not entirely sure on how my decks are gonna work and what exactly im going for until i actually own some cards from my boxes!

My first thoughts after using gatherer and spening some time trying to grasp concepts, Im going for a green elf deck to generate mana for hydras. I know its weird but im going to try hydras!

Also i want to make a red blam deck.

And lastly i wanna make a manabarbs deck. I won like 4 of em for 1 quid from the states! And i plan to use birds of paradise/artifacts to generate mana while everyone else taps land and kills themself.

At the moment, the cards I know im after are

4x Elven Archdruid ****
4x Protean Hydra
4x Birds of Paradise
4x Ball Lightning
4x Rootbound Crag
4x Sunpetal Grove
Some copies of chandra nalaar/garruk

Plus some commons and uncommons such as druid of the anima/trace of abundance. Do you want me to list those too?

Do you have a list of what you have?

Commons and uncommons I'm more likely to have for you - most of those cards you listed, I either have and really want or don't have and really want! I mean, everybody wants 4 BoP!

As for advice, the only bit I'd give you is that I reckon drafting is the most fun way to build up your collection and so I would recommend you do that as much as possible! Especially go to (pre)release events, do reasonably well in the sealed and get into the top 8 draft - then rare draft like mad! ;) There's normally some prize for the top 8 draft that the serious players want, and so they are trying to build the best decks, which means they pass SO MANY RARES! At the Shards prerelease, I got into the top 8 and picked up I think 13 rares. Sure, I lost the first round and got knocked out, but does that really matter? :P

Alas, your advice is wasted sir. I wish i had the time to go to tournaments but like I said, Jamie takes up all my time and I dont wanna keep leaving my wife with him, especially as he is so young still. Perhaps in the future it might be easier but at the moment ill make a few decks and have to play casually with friends when I get the chance to see them.

As regards c/u here is what I plan to use in decks, probably 4 of most of them as well.

trace of abundance
Druid of the Anima
Jungle Shrine
behemoth sledge
mage slayer
whispersilk cloak
quietus spike
Llanowar elves
drumhunter
lightning bolt

I expect ill get them M10 stuff in 2 boxes of it, and I dont have anything to trade at the moment anyway! What are you after? Do you have a have/wants list? So i can bear it in mind when i get my boxes, mid-late september.
