Okay, I exaggerated quite a bit in pricing. Still, there's an enormous gap.
Like I said, do whatever you want at your table. Anything Wer-repported is what I have a problem with.
Most of us opened the more expensive cards from boosters themselves 10 to 20 years ago and kept them. We don't have so much money that we could buy those cards at outright for today's prices.
I'm not sure where you got the elitist notion from. Not a rich kid or something. I need to look at every mtg expense. If we don't own a card of this caliber, we just accept the fact that we won't be able to play it.
Maybe we are a bit old-school, but we play with real cards only. If that annoys you, I'm sorry for you. I genuinely try to listen to people and I respect your opinion.
