I haven't played paper magic in about a year and a half. But yesterday my friend who works at the Navy Exchange (Its like a mini tax-free walmart for families the Navy). He told me "Hey there is like a bin of MtG packs, and since we're not selling them anymore they are 75% off). So we wen't down there and they had assorted packs in a a bin (they were the single packs in the huge cardboard and plastic packages for hanging). They had a bunch of Mirrodin, some Time Spiral, a lot of Planar Chaos, about 7 packs of Future Sight, and a bunch of 9th edition, along with like 2 random packs. We bought them all up and it was like 40$ for almost 50 packs. I was laughing my ass off at the deal I just got.

We went to my other friends house,with my other friends, all of whom are casual players, and busted them all open, planning on doing a sort of inclusive deck building challenge where we would only use cards we all opened together, and build some decks to play. We we're opening them, one of my friends busted like 4 pain lands, which is kinda cool. we got a few other ok rares, and a few ones for fun decks we built. I Started opening the 7 Future Sight packs. I was telling them about the Card Tarmogoyf and how it was one of the better cards ever printed, and the first to be 40$ when it was in type 2 (IIRC). I got to my last pack and said "Wouldn't it be awesome if I pulled one." I opened the pack, shuffled through all the cards, and got to the rare. It was none other than the Goyf, himself. I couldn't stop laughing with glee, and I said "See, called it".


And that my friends, is how I paid 0$ for 50 assorted packs of Magic.

I'm not trying to one up anyone, but a similar thing happened to me.

Remember the pre-con with jitte in it? I bought 25 of those for 50 dollars at the mall once.

Making 100's of dollars is different than breaking even.

I thought you guys might like that.

Its kinda not much use to me, I don't play anymore, and I don't plan on selling it, but in the case I get BACK into paper magic it will be 1 less Goyf I need.
