SHIPPING: US and Canada only, please. Worldwide trades may be considered but the value would have to make it worthwhile, and you will be sending first. Otherwise, refs determine sending order -- this means I will not be sending first under any circumstances, as I have over one hundred completed trades here. I think I've paid my dues, and now it's your turn. Newer traders will be expected to send first, otherwise I will simulsend with established members. Send and receive in soft sleeves and top-loaders. Please let me know when you receive your card(s) and I will do the same.
HAVES: For now I'm just going to list everything that's not currently in one of my decks. Some of these cards may be hard to get, or simply not for trade (don't be afraid to ask, though -- I can let almost anything go if the price is right.) So far I'm only listing my rares and promo cards. Un/commons and foils may be added at a later time. If you have any in your wants, though, I'd be happy to check your list.
WANTS: No gold borders, proxies, fakes, Collectors' Edition, etc. Please no promos, foils, or foreign cards unless I agree to such beforehand.
All cards are in EX or better condition unless otherwise noted (most are NM/M), and I expect the same in return.
REFS: We tend to use the "honor system" around here. There used to be (maybe still is? I don't know) an automated ref-checker, but I've never used it and no one has asked me to confirm anything on there. Instead, we just post a list of users with whom we have traded in the past. When trading with a member for the first time, then, you can check the ref lists of some of the other traders on their list (or contact those users directly) to see if the first trader is listed among the other user's refs as well. If any of them are members that you have also traded with and know to be good traders, then that would be a good place to start. When two different members both list each other on their refs lists, then you can be fairly certain that the references are legit.
My references and trade history are in the second post of this thread, right below this one. I will add your name to my refs list only after both sides of the trade have been completed, so you probably will not want to list me as a reference until then also. If you add me to yours before, and someone else comes looking at my refs to confirm that your name is there, then it will not be there.
A note on sorting: I list each card only once, under the latest edition it's been printed in, so if you're after a specific older version of a card that's been reprinted, you'll have to check under the latest set it's legal in. For example Mind Spring is listed under M10, and all my Painlands are listed under 10th Edition, regardless of what set the card's actually from. When no edition is given it means the card is from the set it's listed under.

XScoobahX: Canceled by me -- I sent my address, then he sent me his but, in the same message, he asked if they were mint (they're not, but they are "EX or better" like it says in my thread rules).

I believe this is the same user as IISGTDEATHII since, although he did not identify himself as such, the shipping info he provided did seem strangely familiar...

Trade: 1x Horizon Canopy For my: 1x Karplusan Forest Simulsend (Confirmed Fri. July 25, Canceled Sun. July 27 2008)
Hi Slayer. Interested in a small trade? I need your 1x Sigil of Distinction. I also could use your 2x Ball Lightning, but being older versions I would probably value them a little less. I know they do the exact same thing, but I just like the M10 version better.
Also, do you happen to have any of my wants not listed on your thread, perhaps? Mostly looking for the missing pieces to transform my Boros into Koros -- I need 2x Elspeth, 1 more Basilisk Collar, some Stoneforge Mystics...and of course I wouldn't sneeze at a couple Bullsh-- I mean Baneslayer Angels for the sideboard.
Here's what I have from your wants: 1x Jace, the Mind Sculptor 1x Scalding Tarn 2x Cloudstone Cruio 3x Horizon Canopy (have 4x but you only said 3)
I probably have these, but I'd have to dig through my old un/commons box(es) to find them: 1 Essence Warden 3 Heritage Druid 4 Boreal Druid
...and a list. Please CML for anything else (haves or wants) and LMK if you'd like to make a deal? Even if it's just something small like your Sigil of Distinction for...I was gonna say for the Cloudstone Curio, but it looks like that's worth a fair bit more than I thought it was...did it just get good or something? Anyway, please CML and LMK, Thanks
Thanks for the interest! Yeah, the Curio has been popping up in Extended Elf decks (most notably the deck Matt Nass piloted to first in Grand Prix Oakland) so I guess that probably brought the price up. Well, looking through your list of wants I have these that I could spare.
(I'm using MOTL prices here)
x1 Sigil of Distinction 0.51 x2 Ball Lightning $6 (4th is listed as 4.04 and beatdown isn't listed, so I just added a bit under a couple bucks) x1 Vampire Nighthawk 1.19 x4 Lightning Bolt (M10) 3.48 x1 Day of Judgment 5.57 x1 Earthquake (M10) 1.71 -18.46
I'm most interested in these (I really want to get an extended deck together, haha).
