To me, anything more than 1$ for a piece of cardboard is too much.

Well the value of something depend on how you consider it.I f for you mtg is just piece of cartoon it's ok, mtg have no value then. Don't forget that money irl is in paper, it's cheaper then cartoon lol maybe in your country all transaction work with gold or with object... Welcome to -500 bc j.-C

It is true that money is just paper as well. So the logic that cardboard isn't worth paying for is retarded. In fact it is arguable that buying magic cards can in fact be profitable if done correctly.

ON a unrelated note, the dollar is worth about $.04 compaired to the dollar for the 1920's.
And if you really enjoy magic, and play it a lot, then why the hell would you not spend money on a card you need? You can always trade it, re-sell it. If you think it is worth your time, then buy it.
I got 4 tarmogoyfs for $63 dollars, today i could sell them on ebay for $150 pretty quickly.

I'm from europe. Our bank notes are much more expensive in production than dollar notes or MTG cards (yes eaven foil cards).
And in my oppinion ALL magic cards should be available for everyone for a small price. WotC could still earn enough money if they would make more tounaments with higher entry fees and selling oher stuff like sleefs or deck boxes.

In my opinion, mtg cards should not be free/avaliable for anyone. Communism is a very very bad thing.

Didnt say free. But face it: Most ppl just can affort paying 2000$ for a vintage deck or eaven some 100$ for ext/t2 deck. Ist simply rediculously expensive. Why not reprint heavy traded cards to give more people access to professional tournaments???

that has to be the absolute worst idea i have ever heard....

highering prices for tournaments would stop a lot of people from going, thus making everything more expensive. take a class in economics and come back and talk

No. Higher prices for cards do. Also higher fees for tournaments are way more easy to justify becouse you acually GET something in return for your money and you have the possibilty to earn price money. Is works well like this in non-trading card games and I guess magic is populare enough to get enough peolpe to tounaments.
So no I dont think it would stop people from going to tounaments, but enable more people to do so.
