$750 in magic cards, or a video card of similar price?

The cards are vintage and very old (broken in power) thus why so expensive.

Ultimately both are unnecessary just curious which people would get.


Old cards cant be used in standard tournaments unless they have been reprinted so the GPU easily (wouldn't even pick the Magic cards even if they were recent and of the rarest)

DUDE! Get the magic cards! Those things are so awesome, 700 bucks is a steal! I suggest you use all your rent money for the month to buy more magic cards.

In all seriousness:
Just buy the gfx card. You can get a good one for 250 bucks and just save that money. I didn't know people still played magic. I never like the card game and never like the video game of the card game.

I think it has come to the point, where I find little joy in life and thus magic is a way to find some shade of enjoyment from playing it with friends.

In regards to the video card, I just find it hard to even buy a better card (currently have a 560 TI), I purchased a computer recently with all higher end parts, but I have found I rarely even use it now a days.

Do any of you ever experience that? You purchase things purely for the sake of purchasing them as a form of pseudo self medication of driving off that soulless feeling? The endorphin rush no matter how short is a temporary buffer against that endless feeling of non-existence, nothingness.

Sounds like you got some problems. You should try to get some help.

Anyhow, do what you think you will enjoy the most. Those two are totally unrelated and most people don't play card games. So you are just going to get a biased opinion no matter what.

The real question is what Magic cards?

Magic cards get out-dated in two years if you turney. You won't even be able to learn how to use all those decks in that time.

I've never owned Magic card, so I can't comment on that, but I do like my high end graphics card.

The $750 is actually for a single 60 card vintage deck.

Ok, then what deck is it?
#20Jesse7777(Topic Creator)Posted 7/26/2012 1:23:16 PM
Mostly all alpha and early series cards, such as moxus, instant artifact turn 1 mana, lotus etc.
