Some cards for the Edric deck. Still working on cutting some. Currently 39 creatures with 2 vehicles, 14 instant & sorcery, 3 Enchantments & 4 Auras, 8 Artifacts & 3 Equipment. Not sure how many lands I should have with all the draw and low cmc I could probably get away with low 30’s but figure I should have more than the 27 I currently have room for.
Check out these great pages from my Partners:
I’m currently picking up about as many of these as I can afford; I saw this beautiful, EDH greatness floating around eBay for $150 about a week ago, which was insane, as this is post-buyout listing. Truthfully, I was skeptical; Most of these are around $250. Sometimes you can find them for like $220 if you’re lucky. It was “newly listed” with 4 available and 1 had sold in an hour, so I picked one up. Now that I have received the card, I wish I had bought the others. Aside from very minor factory edge-wear (something that has been a problem with Expeditions, Masterpieces and Invocations), this thing is a gem— the front and back are clean and I’m very satisfied. A little tidbit about masterpieces in general: These will go through waves of buyouts until they become the new “officially unofficial” Reserved List. These cards are so rare, and if you’re lucky enough to open one, it has to be one that people care about. Additionally, they come from sets that are pretty much terrible after standard rotation. Granted, Chandra and the enemy speed lands came from Kaladesh and have a home in Modern, but that isn’t a huge incentive to open or buy boxes of Kaladesh. So where does that leave us? Collectors buy out the actual card because it is a sure thing. For me, an EDH staple like this, or Sol Ring (good luck) at a reasonable price, are the kind of cards to look out for. EDH is the elder blood of mtg, while Modern is the life blood, so cards that are shiny and flashy in these formats will be the cards that help you pay of student loans later in life, haha. I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings, this shiny piece of cardboard and the General breakdown of FOMO.
