eBay Store Open for Business!

I've talked about my "exit strategy" from Magic for a while, but now I'm actually putting into motion. I've played Magic for over 20 years now and as I've gotten older I just don't have that many opportunities to play physical cards. I still love Magic, but it just doesn't come up in my daily life. So, over the past year or so I've come up with the following exit plan:

  • Step 1: Build a Cube.
  • Step 2: Build a block deck.
  • Step 3: Sell off the rest of my physical collection on eBay.
  • Step 4: Build a single themed, non-competitive, relatively inexpensive block deck for every block until the end of time.
  • Step 5: Scratch competitive itch by drafting on Magic Online.

I have literally thousands of dollars tied up in Magic cards that I don't use and it's finally time to unload all of it. You can find a link to my eBay Store in the top right of this blog. I'll try to list more and more cards to my store at a decent pace until it's all gone.

I've said this before, but I'll say it again, the main reason I got into Cube was because it's one of the only formats that doesn't require anyone else to bring any cards. If I'm going somewhere and I know there are going to be people who know how to play Magic, I can just throw my Cube into a backpack and I'm good to go. And as a casual brewer, I find Cubing more than enough to satisfy my deck building needs.

Once my exit strategy is complete, all new decks lists I post here will most likely be limited to "Block Decks" that I've put together on Magic Online.

So if you're interested in buying some physical cards on eBay (to finish Cubes of your own?), take a look at my eBay Store. It's open for business.

Happy bidding. ^_^
