Community: Collections


I want to talk about how to keep track of collections, when a collection gets too big, and how to unload extra stuff.




Magic is a game that demands change, or it will die. A lot of our decks are the same way. It may be impossible to have a “perfect version” of a deck just because new cards are always coming out to either make it stronger, or make things harder on you. Let’s talk about what it takes to keep your decks up to date.


Ixidor vs Brago




I want to remake my Nekusar deck, so take a look at madness! What madness cards are cool tech, worth playing, or just ones we like.

    Good to hear Clay back in the mix. I have 4 big 3000+ boxes with all of my bulk and 7 bulging binders of my rares, mythics and chase uncommons sitting between my end table and couch. I also have a modified old movie projector carrying case that perfectly holds 10 fat pack boxes with my 27 EDH decks and dice. So, I often will watch TV and be able to reach down and build or modify a deck at the same time.

    As I type all of this, I realize I have a problem.

    My wife and I are currently going through our collection and thinning out the bulk. Another idea for a place to get rid of bulk is your local board game museum like imogap. If there’s anything similar around you, they’re a good place to offload cards and help teach new players the game. if you’re interested.

      I have done 2 major purges of my cards over the years, dumping thousands of commons and uncommons and giving them to new players. I know there have been groups that have donated bulk cards to soldiers on active duty that have an interest in Magic, but my Google-Fu is weak today. Also, I don’t know if it’s an option for everyone, but Child’s Play was an organization that Commandercast has done fundraisers for in the past. I remember in Andy’s original run, people were auctioning off cards and using the money to donate. Child’s play doesn’t accept used games, but you could sell your bulk and donate the proceeds, or even buy booster packs or starter/event decks.
