    [DO NOT TRY TO SELL IN HERE] Pimp Legacy Decks

    I've seen this thread on a few vintage forums, so why not here? And it's friday, and i'm waiting to go out, and I'm bored beyond belief. So here we are: Post your deck/other decks that you've seen that are 'pimped' (god, i hate that word)

    edit: need new pics

    There are differering standards for pimpness.

    Usually people go by rarity, which means foil asian signed junk. I'm sure there are some solidarity players with foiled/signed almost everything.

    Some people, like myself, go by aesthetics, which means BB, old cardface, english, and best art. But that's an uncommon criterion.

    I am like you.

    If I could have anything, I'd get rid of those janky white bordered Serendibs for some Arabian Nights ones. Same with the Psi Blasts, Alpha/Beta all the way.

    Pimping cards unless you have them all is generally a complete waste of money. You could be buying other cards you need with the money you used to get Beta or foil versions of cards you already do have.

    Oh come on, lighten up. You honestly want to look at Iff-Biff efreet with a white border?

    Style is so clutch.

    Re: Pimp Legacy Decks

    I'm really more of a BB border/original art kind of person. Foil is fine and all, and sometimes I eventually foil some decks out, but mostly if I can get the deck entirely BB'd, I'm content.

    This is usually my stance as well. I don't mind if the foils are easy to obtain, but I'm not going to go out of my way and drop a ton of cash for cards I essentially already own.

    I literally have a ton of German Plains and Mountains, as well alot of other German basic land I got for about $2.

    Don't you know that decks with foils and signed stuff plays better? I thought that was a rule of Magic...

    Re: Pimp Legacy Decks

    My green stompy deck has some nice stuff (2 Foil CotV, 2 Signed CotV, a couple of Arabian Erhnam Djinns, several other foils) but I haven't really finished anything.

    I recently won this on eBay*... Japanese Foil, signed, altered, and painted, but I'm not sure what to do with it yet. Pimped Eternal Garden, most likely.

    Oh yeah, all of my basics are Alpha, although I really have been wanting to replace some with Guru (the art is absolutely amazing).

    *I suck at ebay -- setting the snipe up twice which raised the price by 13.00 dollars.

    I personally would not play with an Ifh-Biff Efreet if you held a gun to my head. However, I personally would not care in the slightest if it was white-bordered, black-bordered, green-bordered, blue-bordered, whatever. 2GG 3/3 fliers do not impress me.

    He was referring to how the Revised Serendib Efreet has Ifh Biff Efreet's artwork.

    I constantly see you bidding on the same stuff as me on ebay. You have a much higher spending limit than me, however.

    Re: Pimp Legacy Decks

    I personally like spending oh, $15 for a Revised Serendib Efreet playset rather than say $150.

    Color me an idiot otherwise, but I could care less. That extra $135 is a Library of Alexandria for Christ's sake.
