A budget for Magic is no different than it would be for a business. Creating an efficient budget maximizes the impact of your existing collection and builds value in your collection over the long term. Much of the advice in this article will sound obvious or even silly, but I promise it works. I use these strategies in my personal life and in my business, so my money is exactly where my mouth is.

It’s been over two months since I last posted anything on CommanderCast, and in that time I’ve come to realize that I’ve said almost everything I had to say about community issues. (Although I reserve the right to dredge up my Line in the Sand series if feel the need to get up on my soapbox.) With that in mind, I decided to start afresh. But what to do? It wasn’t until about two weeks ago that I finally realized that I really wanted to give videos a try.

While reading about Commander decks on the internet, it’s easy to become lost in the sea of optimal card choices, or the phenomenon of ‘pimping’ decks with foils, altered art, or signed cards. While devotion to a diversion is not something I discourage, many players find the excesses in EDH particularly troublesome, especially when their regular playgroup will occasionally win out with sheer card quality. The fact that Commander significantly overlaps with Legacy and Vintage makes many of the cards we’d like to include in our decks extremely expensive.

In particular, powerful cards associated with Legacy like revised dual lands, Sensei’s Divining Top, Force of Will, and Vindicate all carry a heavy sticker price. Even strictly casual cards, like Death Baron and Lord of the Undead have inflated values. If Magic is just a goofy hobby to you, spending hundreds of dollars building or improving a deck might leave a bad taste in your mouth, even when you want to stay competitive with your local group or the folks at your local game store. The good news is, there are often alternatives to powerful cards that are only slightly inferior to their exorbitantly expensive counterparts. This week, we’ll take a look at expensive blue cards, and what they can be replaced with. Read the rest of this entry »
