I've been a Magic player since 2005. At the time, I only had a few starters, theme decks, and boosters. Then came the Ninth Edition release in Moscow, which was cool, I met Garfield, John Avon, Mark Tedin, and of course Donato Giancola! That's what set things in motion. I became an active player and soon turned into an insane fanatic. Magic was always weird in Russia; small community, no market, and high prices. I have a great many thing to talk about, follow my blog if you want to read more!
As a result of the aforementioned conditions, my friends and I made a decision to collect Russian cards. Turns out we had the right idea! On the one hand, nobody was gathering foils, but on the other, it was rather hard to obtain many of them. It appeared that many cards were subject to print runs containing less then 20, or in extreme cases, less then 10 copies! Single buyers for special cards could hardly find a playset even if all the other traders in the country knew he has money. It was obvious that such cards would be rising in price, as collectibles, while the game moved forward. I would say some kind of market appeared here with Zendikar, but it was still very small.
I've been gathering cards all these years and I am proud of my collection - I have really rare things that were found after 4-6 years of constant searching. Furthermore, I want to say that it was my all-in. Do not misunderstand me, spending 4-8 hours a day in clubs and on the internet made it matter of my life.
Anyways, now I am selling out. There are two main reasons for this, the first of which involves the high levels of aggression in the community, cheating, and scamming/fraud became wide-spread among Magic players and traders. I simply don't want to be a part of that. Plus, gaming is not compatible with my current scientific interests - I want to get money back and put it into my projects.
This site was made to help me. I had too many dealings and talks going on, so I needed an instrument to manage everything. Also, I can list cards that my friends would like to sell. All these years I was dreaming of having such a service to find things that I needed... and now I'm at your service!
