Good investment.

Speaking of investing, I've heard that it's better to buy Magic the Gathering cards when their price is low, then sell them when their price is high. Is this true?

In some cases, buying high during Standard and then selling them off after rotation can inject some serious liquidity into the system. Think qualitative easing, but more local.

I prefer to buy when prices are low and then sell to online buylists at extremely low prices, ripping myself off. This is because I live a precarious lifestyle that requires funds at immediate checkpoints.

You should always be looking to resell magic cards to a dealer, especially at events when there are hundreds to thousands of other individuals who are likeminded in looking for fast cash for their cards. This kind of fast paced high volume buying environment is like a kind of social lubricant for sales and surely will result in the highest return on your dollar.

I think Abzan is cool, it just unfortunatately has a good name already in Junk

Grixis will remain the worst name of the 10

Temur is pretty bad
Sultai is pretty bad
Dimir is pretty bad
