Are you a Quiet Speculation member?

If not, now is a perfect time to join up! Our powerful tools, breaking-news analysis, and exclusive Discord channel will make sure you stay up to date and ahead of the curve.

Several of our readers have asked why Understanding Gush lacks card images. Having just completed a law course on the subject, I'll tell you the answer is "copyright infringement." The Fair Use doctrine is unlikely to cover our use, and I don't want QS to be sued out of existence! We are currently seeking licenses or permissions, while at the same time, exploring how to add helpful images to the work without infringing copyrights. If I could load this book over-full with pictures, I would certainly do it!

Douglas Linn

Doug Linn has been playing Magic since 1996 and has had a keen interest in Legacy and Modern. By keeping up closely with emerging trends in the field, Doug is able to predict what cards to buy and when to sell them for a substantial profit. Since the Eternal market follows a routine boom-bust cycle, the time to buy and sell short-term speculative investments is often a narrow window. Because Eternal cards often spike in value once people know why they are good, it is essential for a trader to be connected to the format to get great buys before anyone else. Outside of Magic, Doug is an attorney in the state of Ohio.  Doug is a founding member of Quiet Speculation, and brings with him a tremendous amount of business savvy.
