Sorry I haven't been around in a while, had a lot of life-issues come up, been handling them as well I ever do. I'm posting to ask for help from anyone who knows me. I've been testing for the last year for GP Charlotte which is June 12-14, and as we're a few weeks away, I'm in now way prepared: I don't have my deck in paper and I don't have any hope of getting the $60 entry.

If you can help even just a little in either area, I might be able to convince one of my friends or family to chip in the rest. I know its dumb, but it means a lot to me to be able to play.

I'm running "Stompy" (Mono Green Aggro, but people are calling it that) and the tentative list is this:

22 Forest
4 Dryad Militant
4 Experiment One
4 Strangleroot Geist
4 Leatherback Baloth
4 Dungrove Elder
4 Avatar of the Resolute
4 Vines of Vastwood
4 Aspect of Hydra
3 Scavenging Ooze
3 Setessan Tactics
SB: 4 Unravel the AEther
SB: 3 Guttural Response
SB: 4 Beast Within
SB: 4 Feed the Clan

I've tested it extensively and this is the most cost-effective chance I can give myself. If you can help with any of these cards, please let me know. That and my entry fee are the obstacles, I live half an hour away and will have no problem getting a ride.

Sorry to come beg, but I'm out of options.

Dude how old are you? Information like that could change people's willingness to help you.

It certainly doesn't stop you from asking. It's just I personally would be a lot more willing to help 12-15 year old kid who does not really have the opportunity to raise the money for himself. Not knowing anything about your circumstances I'm not going to say anymore than that.

If you don't want to help, then don't comment.

If you cut the four most expensive cards in the deck (Dungrove, Ooze, Guttural, Beast Within) you can bring the cost down to less than $30, which is not very much money so I'm sure you can borrow it from someone in your family. You should be able to find suitable replacements (Burning Tree Emissary, Wistful Selkie, Kalonian Tusker, etc).

GPs have plenty of side events, so I would recommend ordering the cards from TCGPlayer now, hitching a ride to the GP, and signing up for one of the $20 Modern side events, which again I'm sure your family can spot you. You'll still have fun, and you'll be spending $50 instead of $200.

You can get always sell your plasma for $100 bucks. I used to do it all the time when I was in the Army. You only got $20 back in those days. I think first time you give you get $100 then $50 a shot after that. You can give plasma 2X per week. Google for the plasma centers in your area. You could have the money for your trip in one week easy.

just no blood born pathogens like HIV or HEP C. They will ask you questions like do you have any risky behaviors like sharing needles etc. If you are a fairly normal person it will be no problem.

You also have to be a US citizen, plus you can not be gay.
