    Does Mizzix of the Izmagnus reduce the cost of cards that make you pay their costs later like Pact of Negation?

  • posted a message on Earthcraft Question
    I am looking at adding Earthcraft to one of my EDH decks. This deck does not contain any basic lands so my question is do have to have a valid target for Earthcraft? Or can i just user to tap my Gilder Bairn? Would the target have to be someone else land? Or could i pick an invalid target and just not have the land picked untap (something like Steam Vents)?

    If this idea does not work any suggestions?

    An average of $1.50 on 64,000 cards in incredibly hard to reach. For every $100 card, you have thousands that are worth fractions of a penny.

    Remember that guy who had his collection stolen recently that contained japanese foils, beta power, beta duals, misprints, etc.? Someone priced out the notables and not even that was $100k (iirc, it was around ~$70k).



    Saying TCG pricing on everything some nothing would be worth a fraction of a cent.

    For that guy you are talking about notiable part of his collection was 70k. So what would the rest be worth on TCG pricing? $500k if someone would actually pay for it (assuming he has alot more and didnt throw out all "cheap" cards). I said in my first post I could probably sell for 6k to the right buyer.

    Can you even grok the difference between what a $4000 collection and a $100,000 collection looks like?


    NEVER once did I say i could sell it for 100k I said it was probably about 100k on tcg values. Read my actual post please. I said $6k~

    If the cream of your collection consists of the cards you listed, you will be lucky to get 1000 dollars for your collection.

    LOL. 100K. LMAO.



    Saw a collection with a lot of the cards i have sell for 4k on ebay. With less total overall cards. Numbers arent that far off.

    Look at the $6k price. For one Jaces you take off .20 and add 149.90. For 10 kitchen finks you add you take off $1 and add $50.20

    So now it is $6348.20 and thats only translating 12 cards to tcg pricing. I know the others translate lower and slower. But it adds up quickly.

    Using the mid price for tcg it would be $12160 (saying avg card price is .19)

    64000 cards pricing for 100k would be saying your avg card is $1.50.

    Ironically one of the ways people drastically overvalue their collections is by assuming their collection is worth the sum total of the retail prices on all the cards, down to every 30 cent uncommon. In fact this is the most common way people drastically overvalue their collections.

    Which is precisely my point. Your collection (or box) is not "worth" the sum of retail prices of every individual card. People will not value your collection through this formula.



    Correct. Smile


    Well one way to value your collection that would be more accurate would be something close to this. My current collection has about 64000 cards (without basic) accounted for atm. If I want to put an approximate sell value on it I would call it, $6500-9000. That is calling every card $.10-.15. I know it would not be easy to move for that price but, it would be possible because of some bigger name cards I have with it

    Jace, the Mind Sculptor x2
    tarmogoyf
    Mox Diamond
    all 5 zendkar fetches

    To show a few.

    Now if I were looking at the actual tcp prices for all these cards I would probably be looking really close to $100k

    This is my third time playing Magic. And last time (around 7th edition) I was into Magic I remember Birds of Paradise was $15-20 now they are down to $5 or less.

    I am referring to the 7th edition one. I do not recall where the prices of Alpha, Beta or Unlimited were.

    Why would you use your Platinum Emperion to block anything (except infect)? If your life total cannot change then why not just take all the damage?

    Reverberate

    Here is my question for this. Can I copy any spell in my deck? Or does it have to have been played this turn? Or does it have to be in my graveyard? Or my hand?

    Thank you in advance for the help.
