It's a good problem to have, to have a bunch of stuff aside to open for this blog, and I am thankful for it. Today (and tomorrow), I'm going to go through another of the Dollarama 100 assorted Magic card packs to see if I luck out on any artifact additions, and generally anything cool in the pack. Today, left half first!

Not Spoiled, But Foiled
I don't know if the doubling up of the cards is on purpose or not, but I can say, I expect it to happen more with newer cards. The cardstock is so much more thin the last 8-9 years, that two cards together, just seems more likely to happen compared to the old card stock that was thicker.
Seeing Cancel here, also brings up one point - some cards sure get a lot of reprints. I can understand the ease and need, since rules for playing Magic look at newer sets or cycles only, being the legal cards you can play. SO if they want a card to say around and be playable, it needs to be reprinted regularly. Cancel has been in almost 20 sets at this point.
I have my play set of 4 Prophet of the Peak cards, so no help there.
Prismatic Lens is a keeper. Frostwalla seems to be a regular in these repacks.
The first card here, the Totem, is foil and my first artifact foil actually from the Ixilan set, so that's a neat pick up. Prying Blade is a keeper too.
Prismite is a regular in these as well, so no need for this one as I have 4, which means, just 3 keepers from this half. Could be worse. I am going to try and make an effort to see what I can trade away with these Magic cards I don't keep, for ones I will just to see if I can move some, otherwise, I may just sell a box locally to clear some out. Much rather trade though.
Will right beat left? We shall see tomorrow!
