Mox Ruby Discussion
2 weeks ago
8 months ago
I remember several years ago I was talking to a friend of mine who had a Black Lotus . He told me how he sold it in like 2004 for a few grand. I informed him that (At the time of the conversation) it was going for around $13,000 (Alpha Lotus).
I checked Card Kingdom's Price and it's at $75,000.
So I checked an Index and it seems like on most large sites prices have tanked to $0.00 while three sites stand out in particular:
- AUB Games (Who?)
- Best Buylist Price (Again, who??)
- Card Kingdom - Who it appears settled on $40,000 before selling out their collection
So it seems like whomever this AUB and Buylist are, they are buying a LOT of cards.
The same upward trend is seen on Mox Ruby , making me wonder if someone out there bought into a massive position of Power Nine cards? If so, that sounds to me like some sort of insider trading might be going on.
If someone feels like dumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into Magic, does that mean something is coming? Nobody invests that much without a reason.
It looks like yes, all Power Nine cards have this same trend with the same buyers.
It seems like AUB Games was Copyrighted in 2019.
Honestly, this seriously pisses me off. Like, by a lot.
Yes, most of these cards were out of the budget range for a lot of players. Yet at the same time, it was always a possibility to build good credit and buy one using a credit card. You could finance options and restructure your finances if you really wanted to.
Cards that cost several thousand to around $13,000 were goals people who were really dedicated could reasonably see. For those who are passionate and determined, $13,000 on a card - or even $5,500 - is no different than saving up for car, a set for your music instruments, building a gaming station in your room, putting a downpayment on a house, or even just taking that vacation you've always wanted.
But now some bastard group shot those same cards up by the tens of thousands, meaning nobody except the extremely wealthy can buy them anymore.
And that pisses me off.
Those cards don't do any good sitting on a shelf collecting dust. You can put the value of a card at $75,000 or $120,000 or even $1M but if nobody can buy it, it's worthless.
So now those cards that players and collectors were working toward and hoping to one day acquire are effectively gone forever. And all because some group of degenerate bastard assholes drove the price so freaking high that there is no possible way to obtain them.
I'm sorry, but it's not right. We aren't dealing with Google and Amazon stock here. We are dealing with collectables and pieces of a card game.
This is absurd and shouldn't have happened.

Legendary Creature - Dinasour
Whenever ~ enters the battlefield or attacks it deals 2 damage to each creature and each opponent.
Whenever ~ is put into a graveyard or exile, you may shuffle your and put ~ on top on it.
I hope I got the reference right, haven't played Final Fantasy at all. but now, create a Mox card that would suit the Mox family. see Mox Ruby , Mox Pearl , Mox Emerald . (maybe something about additional lands)

Ah, the memories of old-school battles between mono-red burn vs mono-blue control!
Just one question: why you are using Black Vise in a burn deck? I'm not saying it's bad, but I used to see this artifact played essentially by control decks that did not allow the opponent to cast their cards.
(Unfortunately, after 25 years of price increase it is not possible any more to have Mox Ruby in those decks as it was back then!)

But like...it'd have to be duct taped back together, water damaged, and the artwork scratched out with an eraser.
