So my friend has daughters of a certain age - the age where they want to learn to play magic. He doesn’t play too much these days, but he goes into Meijer and gets one of their repacks of three old boosters for something like $6. He pulls a Snapcaster Mage and a foil Cavern of Souls out of it.

What I’m trying to say is I felt a buck and a half for a foil cavern was too good to pass up.

(*This is the same guy that went into Meijer, bought three packs of Kaladesh, and sold the Masterpiece Sol Ring to the cart boy for $150 in cash.

Heh That's a cool story.

My LGS has these foreign Standard or near-standard packs for close to a dollar, so I've taken to grabbing a German or Korean Shadows Over Innistrad pack on the way out (for about $3 U.S.).

First pull was..Liliana, the Last Hope (Korean).
Second pull was...Geier Reach Sanatorium (German)
Then another pack got me a Korean Shaper's Sanctuary.
I stopped there, only so much luck in the dice. :D

I bought a moderately played Beta Lightning Bolt today. One of the LGSs in Toronto moved and I had some store credit with them. It’s hard to make it to their new location, so, I has to spend it.

A lot of the ugly is sleeve, but it’s fairly beat up.
