Well, I've found a buyer but I'm a little disappointed with the price.  I feel good about the buyer, I think he's an honest person who's looking to do the best he can for both of us BUT his best offer is half of what I had hoped for. Is $1000 a realistic amount of money to expect for a set like...

Value of my collection

Hello folks, I was involved with MECCG quite heavily in my youth and then again in the summer of 2006.  I'm now at a point where I'd like to sell my rather large collection.  I'm looking for advice on pricing, shipping, etc. 90% of the cards are in near mint condition (very little to no we...

I'd consider making it unique too.  Many Sorrows Befall is a similar card and it is unique.  The 'counterspell' of MeCCG I think should be a rarity, not a norm.

Mistress Lobelia and Minor items

Can Mistress Lobelia dredge up a minor item after the play of a faction or other similar MP card?  ie...Is a minor item considered 'playable at the site' during that window of opportunity after successfully playing an item, ally or faction?

Thanks.

What's a good number of total MPs to stive for in a tourney?

I'm hoping to go to the US(/Canada) Nationals coming up and I'm wondering what's a good # of MPs to shoot for?  As many as possible, obviously...but my deck can't be all MP cards... :)  I suppose this number is different for the different alignments...it seems like the FW decks posted have...

I wouldn't want to see any changes to this card.  I really like the thematic twist to the pair of the hazard and resource manifestatins of the Mouth.  If you choose to use The Mouth you have to expect that Sauron may want him at any moment.  He's not really a free agent.  The Mou...

When was the last time a hero deck made it into the finals of a sanctioned competition?  Was that deck a dunk deck?  I don't know the answer to this question...I think at this point it is THE question and needs an answer. My biggest complaint is that the core alignment is almost unrepresen...

I've been watching the discussion for a while and decided to add my .5 cent... From what I understand one major problem with the UEs is the idea that it will split the community between those that want the changes and those that are oppossed.  I didn't really have an opinion before this debate ...

Mind ring's are minor items so they don't satisfy the conditions on Rumor of the One.  Just like Wizard's Ring, although the title of the card says Ring it is actually a special-item and also wouldn't qualify.

I guess my question should be clarified... Can Catch And Elusive Scent (CAeS) be played at both a hero and a minion version of Bag-End with Chambers at The Royal Court for the purposes of playing, say, A Gold Ring That Sauron Fancies?   I ask because the minion Bag-End says on it Playable: (Maj...

Another question on this topic.... As my deck is being refined I came across this card:   Catch An Elusive Scent .  The card text says: "Scout only. Playable during the site phase on an untapped scout. Tap the scout. Another character in his company may play any minor, major, or gold ring ...
