Just Buy Singles

 Well, Christmas gifts are (for the most part), meant to be opened. Another gift from my brother that is in the "cards" realm is this one...

I don't buy these because, well, there aren't usually any that are artifact focused, but also because, for the price, I am better off just buying the singles that I want instead. Well, as it's a gift, let's open it to see what is inside and what, if anything I will keep. At being twice as expensive as a booster pack, you get more than twice the cards, but a promise of only one rare or mythic, so no more real upside than a pack.

5 collection keepers - all quarter common cards, so not a lot of value to someone caring about artifacts. As I have mentioned, I am building some decks, hopefully some keepers for that purpose in the rest (dupes not scanned where applicable).

Well, I did end up with a mythic which is valued at a few bucks, so could have been worse. The card itself isn't one that will fit in the white deck I built, so maybe I can use it as trade fodder.

Seeing the details of the cards in the pack - I get why these don't impress me. It's not enough to really put a deck together, and not enough to really build around in a single colour, it's just a decent smattering of cards from a set with a loose theme.

I will say, this morning, my daughter asked me if I had any magic cards with cats on them, so she got a good kick out of seeing this pack since there were a few cards in it that fit her criteria. Too bad more didn't hit mine.

I think, as a way of clearing some more Christmas stuff, I'll keep with the Christmas gift theme for a few more days before getting back into the COVID lot of cards that I still have a way to work through.
