Target has been acquired, and researched, foul one. Through my portal magicks, and the power of shipping services, thy will soon be done.

EDIT: If my assailant is reading- A small request: If you have or find a swaggy Cephalid Broker, and/or Cephalid Coliseum- they're both things I'd like to try in the Ephara shell at some point :P

A general question (heh), if someone (nobody in particular) mentions a card without mentioning if it should be foil (or other specifics, like white borders) or not, is it safe to assume foil is not a consideration? What about language? English is presumed?

Hell with what they want, give them what you want them to have.

Like the nicer the better, and if you have a cheap white border version of a card I would draw on it and send it.

This is entirely anecdotal. I took to reading the old threads- but the general idea seems to be that the type of cards you give are entirely up to you. IE- We all made a suggestion about vaguely what we're looking for (even if some of those are far more specific than others.)- and the goal is a combination of "Do what we can/ What is reasonable", and also play with an element of surprise. So your hypothetical White-border, foiled out card might not be what they were looking for per se- but may in fact be several degrees past the ask, making their gift all the more special.

EG: If St. Nic were my victim- and he talked about wanting to build Nicol Bolas, the Ravager- sending him my Téfeiri, mage de Zhalfir is likely to make him laugh his scales off. I don't think anyone here is looking to stick their nose up

EDIT: Tim beat me to it :o Nice

Strangely enough this is the first time I was asking myself this question. Okay, I'm off ordering more Storm Crows.

Remember, the person to whom you send a parcel is called your "victim" for a reason.

I have received my victim and demands.
As usual, unexpected results will occur. :?

This isn't looking good for me. I need to buy out all Storm Crows at some point.

Yeah that doesn't work. I've tried buying out all the Nephilim (I have 336 so far) and they still keep turning up occasionally. And I bet there's a lot more Storm Crows floating around than Nephilim.

To whom it might concern: I just came across something pretty dumb: I wrote Dauthi Slayer where I meant Dauthi Cutthroat. Not that the Slayer isn't a nice card, but it doesn't resemble an assassin. I found the error because I encountered a foil Dauthi Slayer, which I didn't know it existed.

Purchased items, and when I got back in the car... a devious plan came to me... luckily with the cards I purchased and a few I already had I was able to put the plan into motion. I am so clever... it sucks I cannot brag about it yet, but insert a manical laugh here.

Items also purchased. Now to make an alter or two and add some extra "swag" (IE: cards unrelated to demands) and we're off!

First attack has been launched.

Don't forget to keep on eye on page 1 - post 2 to see how many parcels are in transit; and check your summary to see if something is coming your way.
