  1. The past several booster boxes that I have opened smell so bad...What the hell? The cards smell like they are being run through horrid smelling chemicals as a part of their "new" process. Is it a definitive way to tell a "real" card from a "proxy" or did they just do it, to kill us off slowly? Whatever the case might be, I still have a great time opening packs ( opening a box of Guilds now), but I could definitely do without that horrible smell. Any thoughts?
  2. If you are a "Guest" and looking here just to see what was in here for you to see, then it's a welcome from a new member. If you are actually a member that isn't signed in, then let me know that you were here so that I can gauge "How many members browse the site without signing in". To all the "actual" Guests: tell me what it is that you are actually looking for in a "Mtg" site... You might actually join in order to post... To anyone, Guest or member: What is it, that you would actually like to see more of on this site? Deck suggestions (aside from the normal decks that everyone is playing), perhaps advise on how to play against specific decks? Maybe just more postings about Mtg related events and such? Whatever the case, I am curious to know. Thanks for stopping by
  3. Everyone has collected something at some point for whatever reason. I have seen players collect sets, a binder full of the same single card (usually a "goblin" of some sort for whatever reason), or just whatever caught their eye on any given week. I on the other hand, started a "Wall" collection back in the day, because the art back then was cool & because no to walls are ever the same. My collection starts in Alpha and ends around 8th edition or so I believe. I will list the walls and the edition in which I have them from and then I will add pictures. The list is as follow: Wall of Air (Beta) Wall of Air (7th foil) Dark Maze (Homelands ver 1) Dark Maze (Homelands ver 2) Glacial Wall ( Ice Age) Wall of Kelp ( Homelands) Illusionary Wall ( Ice Age) Thunder Wall (Ice Age) Wall of Vapor (Legends) Wall of Water (Alpha) Wall of Wonder (Legends) Wall of Tears (Stronghold) Vodalian War Machine (Forgotten Realms) Fog Bank (Saga) Stinging Barrier (Masques foil) Quicksilver Wall (Prophecy foil) Floodgate (Mirage) Mirror Wall (Judgment foil) Mistform Wall (Onslaught foil) Hover Barrier (Return to R) Wall of Diffusion (Tempest) Cinder Wall (Weatherlight) Wall of Razors (Stronghold) Wall of Heat (Legends) Wall of Earth (Legends) Wall of Lava (Ice Age) Barrier Rampart (Masques foil) Flowstone Wall (Nemesis foil) Pitchstone Wall (Torment foil) Wall of Fire (Alpha) Wall of Stone (Beta) Wall of Dust (Legends) Wall of Opposition (Legends) Blistering Barrier (Mirage) Whip Vine (Alliances ver 1) Whip Vine (Alliances ver 2) Wall of Roots (Mirage) Carnivorous Plant (Dark) Vine Trellis (Masques foil) Wall of Brambles (Alpha) Wall of Pine Needles (Ice Age) Tinder Wall (Ice Age) Mindbender Spores (Mirage) Wall of Blossoms (DCI foil) Wall of Wood (Alpha) Wall of Ice (Alpha) Sunweb (Mirage) Wall of Essence (Stronghold) Alabaster Wall (Masques foil) Wall of Caltrops (Legends) Wall of Light (Legends) Prison Barricade (Invasion foil) Sunscape Familiar (Planeshift foil) Wall of Nets (Exodus) Shimmering Barrier (Saga) Wall of Swords (Beta) Angelic Wall (Odyssey foil) Wall of Glare (Destiny foil) Ageless Sentinels (Scourge foil) Wall of Hope (Legions foil) Steel Wall (Mirrodin foil) Wall of Resistance (Mirage) Wall of Corpses (Mirage) Wall of Tombstones (Legends) Wall of Putrid Flesh (Legends) Wall of Souls (Stronghold) Cemetery Gate (Homelands ver 1) Cemetery Gate (Homelands ver 2) Drift of the Dead (Ice Age) Wall of Vipers (Prophecy foil) Wall of Shadows (Legends) Wall of Bone (Beta) Wall of Bone (7th foil) Carrion Wall (8th foil) Wall of Blood (Mirridion foil) Wall of Distortion (Masques foil) Wall of Spears (Antiquities) Necropolis (Dark) Shifting Wall (Stronghold) Shield Sphere (Alliances) Snow Fortress (Ice Age) Wall of Shields (Ice Age) Crenellated Wall (Masques -need foil) Walking Wall (Ice Age) Wall of Junk (Saga) Mobile Fort (Saga) Jungle Barrier (Apocalypse foil) & The Crown jewel that started the collection... Living Wall (Alpha, signed I am looking to trade for walls that I don't currently have.. I only want walls from their original appearance as well as the first edition that they came out in foil.. Promo foils walls as well. Thanks for looking..

  5. Hello to all, Today, Sunday Oct 15, 2017 at 5pmET on will debuting the famous local Vintage Power Cube. No proxies, some of the best cards in Magic, and no limit to the shenanigans. A mostly-accurate list (15-20 cards have been changed) is depicted below, but the core and power remain in place. Several Klug alters will also be premiering. We hope to do this again in the future, so please come show your support this first time! See you all soon, -The Dean
  6. Welcome from the Dean! From Miami, Florida, we wish to welcome you to the online hub of the Institute. We at the Institute dedicate ourselves to promoting Eternal Formats of the TCG (Trading Card Game) Magic; the Gathering. We accomplish this goal by hosting and streaming tournaments, creating casual and friendly environments, and encouraging original and unique deck design as well as fostering of creativity. Please be sure to visit our main social media site on TWITCH for our livestreams, as well as our main social media hub on TWITTER to stay up to date with the Institute! OUR PHILOSOPHY MODERN Though not a formal Eternal Format, we believe Modern is a starting point for many Magic players who wish to move beyond Standard and Limited events and begin to explore Magic's deeper history. Thus, we focus many of our efforts at this time into Modern in order to begin channeling our players towards earlier sets of Magic. LEGACY The very reason this channel exists. The format of Magic that best explores its complete history while not allowing cards whose power broke the game before it ever took off. This format we believe allows for maximal, unbridled creativity, and we wish to foster that spirit of Legacy not as an elite format, but of one with unparalleled opportunities for deck creation. VINTAGE Memory lane meets empty wallets. Like Legacy except with no bannings for power level, Vintage truly is Magic in its most complete form. Expect twitch streams/YouTube videos every ~2 weeks of Legacy and/or Modern tournaments, deck techs, card art alters, and more! We hope to see you at one of our online sites! (we get a custom URL at 100 subs!) Christian Camargo Founder & Dean of the Mirrodin Institute of Technology
  7. With Eternal Masters coming this summer, I've noticed some Legacy and Vintage cards creeping up in value. Even some that I didn't expect. This may be speculators buying out cards to create a demand or it might be speculators getting ready for Eternal Masters and they expect those cards to raise in value. Is now a good time to start buying older collections and Legacy/Vintage staples that are right now middle of the road but in a few months might raise in value?
