Ready yet?

The plan for Friday is to hit up FNM and do some trading then hit the bar for a few hours until midnight rolls around. 12:01 makes it Saturday and makes it time to prerelease.

There are a ton of cards that I think are criminally underpriced and I plan to target them hard in trades.

This is not the bulk rare some want to make it out to be. Foils of this are bound to be underpriced, but this is nutty in EDH and I want as many foils of this as I can scoop. Grab non-foils at the prerelease, too, if you can.

Here's another card that is better than anyone gives it credit for. EDH is ready for this already. Don't trade for these at $2.50, however.

To quote Happy Gilmore, "The price is WRONG, bitch!"

In order to get in on these trades, you'll have to play the event, most likely. Been building practice pools like we talked about yesterday? Well LSV has graced us with his Red set review.


What's your prerelease weekend ritual?
