Even if you're lying for responses, the existence of these sorts of people does make me sad.
I personally don't care about fake cards as I said a minute ago. The counterfeiters only exist and have a market to sell to at all in the first place because WotC isn't managing their product in a healthy manner. If they did, there would be no market for counterfeits, and capitalism would dictate that nobody makes fakes. If WotC was smarter, counterfeits wouldn't exist. But that's a different conversation.
But this sin by WotC to not regulate their product properly is not the sin of the player who buys/trades your cards. He's innocent. It says a lot about you, not WotC or anyone else, if you try to cheat someone like this. So shame on you, or rather, shame on the theoretical individual you are larping as. >>65361698
This. If anyone is ever prohibited from playing the card or deck they want to play, or that they think is best, then the game has a problem. If anyone at a tournament is not equipped with the cards their brain thinks are the best cards, and instead shows up with someone they think is bad but it's what they could afford, then the game, the actual game itself, is not properly testing skill or intelligence or preparation. Money becomes an element in the actual game. It affects the outcome of a tournament. And that's a bad game.
Every card in the game should be capped at like 20$. And Wizards can make this happen at any time they wish, by literally just clicking the Print button. But they don't, because they, as well as some of the companies they are beholden to (CFB, SCG) tell them not to. The most unfortunate part about this is that all of them can make tons of money off reprints too, and the only thing stopping that is their ignorance and their resistance to change, but that's a different conversation as well.
