A rare case in which I remember WHY I bookmarked a page - I’ve got a box of old Magic cards I really do need to sort and sell.
How to tell what set your card is from!
Q:Hello, I am trying to find ways to amass a bunch of cards so I have more cards to choose from to build more decks, trade more things, and do other cool things lol. What are ways to get a lot of cards for people on a budget? Are there any?
Going around begging is likely a bad idea. I recommend The Deck Builder’s Toolkit, which comes with 285 semi-random cards for about $20 USD. It comes with some booster packs so you have a chance at some rares as well. It’s not the thing to start trades with though, since the rares are light. Anyway, try starting there. Also, be aware of the joys of networking with your friends and players at your local card store. Many people will give up their commons and uncommons and rares they don’t need.
