Pet peeve, newer players who WHINE and whine about how expensive T2 decks are, most costing in the 200$ range and whine even more when some one points out the MTG is a hobby and hobbies cost money.
If anyone does that, we typically tell them about the event decks. Not the intro decks, but the event decks Wizards releases a few weeks or so after each set. While they may not be the best decks, they are pretty good for the price point, and give new players a starting ground.
I wonder.. anyone able to tell me a bit more about the fairness of cards for credit? .. I don't have top of everything things but I wonder if I could get rid off of some stuff with low inconvenience at my local store. of course serious stuff
(I'm living in germany if htis is an american only thing) ..
Studying and money don't mix.
Typically, at least at my store, if the card is good enough, they will buy it for a fraction of the price it is worth if someone were to buy it from them (they've got to make money too, you know). Also, there are websites that sell cards that will buy them as well, probably one of the more common ones being Star City Games.
