So, this was going to be a post to go through a 100 card package I had stashed away from Dollarama...
However the post will be a little shorter than showing all the cards.
I had given my son some cards in the form of a few decks made from my traders because he was interested enough to want them, and we have been playing. So, I told him when I opened this, I only wanted to keep the artifacts, and he could have the rest.
Well, I didn't even get a chance to scan them. Heck,I hardly got a chance to pick out the artifacts for myself!
I can tell you I was pleasantly surprised as there were a number of uncommon cards (about 20) and one rare as well as one nice old school (Nemesis I believe) foil and a couple Chronicles set Boomerang cards. As a side note, the earliest foil cards come from the early 2000s are SO MUCH BETTER than the "foil" cards these days. If I can sneak the one away from him, I'll show a comparison. I believe Urza's Legacy was the first set with foils. You can tell these early ones from the shooting star at the bottom.
Anyway - before I hit too much of a tangent, I know I won't get my $4 worth just in the artifact cards, but let's take a look at what I did get.
This at least I can see using/casting in some ways as it is 4 mana for 3 damage, but being only to a creature hurts it too.
Not bad for one of these packs - I am for 10 but settle with at least 5, so although none are new, they are all keepers since I keep a playing set of 4 of each artifact card - just in case!
We end with a Listia pick up, which is my 6th copy of the card...
I know nothing of the MAGIC game. It's cool to see you and your son sharing an interest in these cards. Sounds like you pulled some good ones from a dollar store pack.ReplyDelete
Nothing earth shattering, but fair enough for a cheap pack.Delete
You had me at "cruelty to rule".ReplyDelete
When I think players of the decade (80's I assume), Bell doesn't really come to mind. Although I do remember him winning an MVP Award.ReplyDelete
Same - not sure how it was decided on being Bell either, but not going to complain as a Jays fan.Delete
Was it $4 for the pack? Too bad there isn't a 100 Pokemon card pack...we'd be getting my kid those instead of the newer sets.ReplyDelete
Yes, $4 for 100 cards. The Pokemon offering at the Dollarama here are more along the lines of "premium" cards being $1.25 or $2 for 4-5 cards, rather than these larger mass common offerings.Delete
