How many card sleeves do you own? And tell me a bit about how YOU use them, how many should a beginning player have?
I collect sleeves. I take my old ones and make them into body-suits that I wear to bed.

A few sets, if they pop, I throw them away, if they're just lying about I sleeve up tokens and cards in my tradebook.

I probably own enough penny sleeves to cover the surface of a large bedroom.
Enough for my most solid decks (which are about 5 or 6).
OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format
--->
For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this: [c=Curse of the Cabal]Captain Never-resolves[/c] = Captain Never-resolves For using the decklist format, follow this: [deck] 4* Terramorphic Expanse 4* Evolving Wilds ... [/deck] It equals:

I like storm crow because I really like crows in real life, as an animal, and the card isn't terribly stupid, but packs a good deal of nostalgia and also a chunck of the game's history. So it's perhaps one of the cards I have most affection to, but not because "lol storm crow is bad hurr hurr durr".

Now, now. 1994 doesn't quite qualify as "ancient".

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

Absolutely. I used to loose to my buddy's Banding deck for ages, it was then that I found out about Tolaria, and I was finally able win my first game.

Browbeat is a card that is an appropriate deck choice when there's no better idea available. "No better idea available" was pretty much the running theme of Odyssey era.

It's true that Alpha and Beta didn't contain any cards like Tarmogoyf, Darksteel Colossus, or Platinum Angel. It just contained weak, insignificant cards like Black Lotus, Mox Sapphire, and Time Walk.
Normally it's difficult to pick up on your jokes/sarcasm. But this one's pretty much out there. Good progress. You have moved up to Humanoid. You'll be Human in no time.

I must have thousands now.. Different colors and pictured ones. I buy new ones for FNM decks quite often, and I like the ones with pictures. The ones that are worn get cycled into commander decks etc.

With me here I have enough of the coloured ones to sleeve all my pre constructed decks in what I deem to be appropriate colours, plus enough to have a sealed league deck and play a limited event at the same time.

I bought a box of 10,000 soft, clear sleeves for storing my cards.  I keep up to four of the same card in each sleeve and I still have plenty of them left.

Back in the UK I'm not too sure.

If you're just starting out I suggest getting 100 coloured back sleeves to use on a deck and as many clear soft ones as you can afford for storage.  As your collection grows you'll be glad you have them.

Cheers
a bajillion-trillion-gazillion clear sleeves Cool I don't know the actual number, but a long time ago my husband got an awesome deal on buying an entire box of clear sleeves. I am talking distributor level amount of sleeves. We usually just throw a case of 100 clear sleeves to anyone that needs them because we have way more than we need. The clear ones are meant to protect potential decks...if a card has a colored sleeve then that means that deck is set and a keeper for the time being.

Not every deck gets colored sleeves, it depends on how much we like it really.

I have purple sleeves on my main deck (w/g angels). Black sleeves on my 2nd fave (b/r vamps). Aqua blue sleeves on my VTES deck (completely different game hehe) and that is it. I have wanted sleeves with warrior women or mermaids (im obsessed with mermaids), but I am a penny pincher so I never bought them.

Ultimately we have a lot of money invested in gaming, not just cards, but gaming in general. We like to protect things that have taken a lot of money out of the bank so taking 2 seconds to slide a clear sleeve over a card that is being used is highly recommended by me. If the cards are not being used they are inside of cardboard boxes unless they are rare, dual land or sentimental. Those cards get to sit inside of binders.

Hundreds and hundreds. While I'm not about to count, it's got to be at least two thousand, likely more, the vast majority of them penny sleeves. It's not hard to build up a lot when you sleeve all your casual decks and never take those decks apart, but just keep building more and more and more...

Because frankly, being here depresses me these days.

I have sleeved 5 Dominion expansions, one of them small. I ordered 1400.
Not that this really relates to a Magic question.

I actually need more, WalMart quit selling them and BooksAMillion and Barnes and Noble only have them in packs of 50, or packs of 100 in two different colors. I'm guessing they just assume everyone plays Yu-Gi-Oh!, then.
