    Got my loot today! Woah, super appreciative, this was incredible! Some cool unglued, a couple sweet foil tokens (that angel will upgrade my Geists quite nicely.) Big thanks! Now i'd like to know who it is! No mention of user name in the package.

    EDIT: Sorry for the poor picture quality. That's an italian SoFI and a set of Chinese (?) Daze.

    Merry Christmas, fellow Sourcers!
    This year's bragging has been awesome! Can't wait to see the remaining half, and let's do it at our earliest convenience!
    For anyone who has not received, please let me know.

    Merry Christmas indeed! The packages spoiled so far have looked great and I'm very much looking forward to opening mine. I'm currently away for the holidays so it might have arrived already. I'll let you know once I'm back in the weekend.

    As far as I'm aware the package I've sent hasn't arrived yet and for some dumb reason my tracking code isn't showing on the postal service's website. With the holidays upon us there's no reaching them. I'll try to get a hold of them Friday again to get the status of the package if my 'victim' hasn't confirmed before then yet.

    Holy crap UseLess I am speechless. Just absolutely floored. Once I have access to some photo editing to turn these pictures down to a less silly size you can bet I'll brag the heck out of these. But in the meantime I can say I was gifted with
    1. Penmanship
    2. Food! oh god it smells so good
    3. a wonderful selection of Mountains
    4. Penmanship, like for real

    If you ever wander into New Jersey there's all the Heineken you can drink

    Seriously, perfect in every way.
    Merry Christmas and an epic New Year!

    oh god I'm going to get so fat

    EDIT FOR PICTURES!
    So my wishlist was for local delicacies of food and liquor. Customs and whatnot being what they are liquor was right out. But food! Oh man what a gift
    Also my wife just finished a Burn deck so obviously we need super cool Mountains to put in, and UseLess did not disappoint!


    it tastes as good as it smells, which is also good. Just good, everything is good


    Some festive alters with tasteful black boarder alters because obviously it goes without saying. UseLess gets it.

    Thank you again so much!

    Great to hear you liked it! It's a 'shame' (for you, not for me :p) that the third piece of speculaas didn't fit in the box, now I had to eat it myself, haha. And you forgot to mention you also got a nice replacement for your wife in case you kick her out when you've been burned to death one too many times. Admiral Beckett will never be mean to you!


    I also came home today and had a very nice package from our gracious host waiting. Tsabo_tavoc actually drafted my cube a few times and gave me some cards to spice up my enchantment theme. On top of that some other nice cards (Bloodghast, Toxic Deluge, playset of Fatal Pushes and an altered Goblin Cratermaker) that I wanted for my cube/decks so that they don't need my cube cards :p. As you can see tsabo, your cards already made it in. I'm hosting a cube in a few weeks again for my friends and I'm looking forward to hear how they liked your cards! Pictures are coming later, now too tired after a full day driving.

    Had to google it to know she is a MtG card. Where is the picture, PirateKing?
    Which edition is the Rebecca Guay Mountain from?

    Happy you like the new cards and adapt 4 of them to your well-thought cube! Great to know you run the cube in real life. How do you normally draft it, and how can I set the parameters at cube tutor to simulate your draft?

    She's someplace... safe. But no, she was with the rest of the hard cases which were out of frame when I snapped the pics.
    The Rebecca Guay Mountain is the APAC for Taiwan, out of the blue APAC booster.

    The last 3 mountains there are all the APAC mountains.

    My turn to brag! I actually received the package a couple weeks ago, but with the holidays hadn't had time to type it up!

    mistercakes sent me a bangin' Secret Santa package, with some sweet flavor from across the pond!

    Here's the album on imgur, with commentary! (can't seem to get the pics to show up here).

    Mistercakes, thank you so much for taking the time to put this together! I got a huge kick out of opening it, and I can really tell you checked out my posts/put it together with care! If you're ever this side of the Atlantic, let me know, and we can get beers on me!

    I wish!
    I took the easier/professional way out and made them through makeplayingcards.com. I had been wanting to make zombie tokens with scathe zombies art (A/B/U/R) and figured this would be a good opportunity to do so.

    It's bragging time!

    Dan Pyre, you're da man. I am so stoked for what I got. Less words, more pictures:

    A great Deckbox and a pack of sleeves (conveniently, those are the ones I use since forever):

    https://i.imgur.com/a/5i0Jy1d.jpg?1

    The reason why Legacy is great (yes, MM > Ice Age):

    https://imgur.com/a/G7nvdnr

    A UMA booster, containing...

    https://imgur.com/a/9pXAfYQ

    Sick playset, accompanied by a note: "Greetings Matteo! I hope that this particular playset of signed cards finds you well. They've traveled from near one coast of the USA to annother, in fact. I asked the artist, Adam Rex, if he could do the signatures for me and he graciously accepted. I shipped them from Ohio to Arizona and then back again - and now they're in your hands! Use them to annihilate your Dredge and Reanimator enemies with aplomb!" Will surely do

    Many many many thanks again!

    Bravo, that is a great package, very well altered Brainstorm!
    A nice pull from the booster, what are the rests, especially the foil?

    Agreed that MM is > Ice Age, and that is an awesome Secret Santa-themed Brainstorm - "while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads"...
