Introducing Insider

Our Insider section is a showcase of our best writers from across the various disciplines of Magic.  The majority of the articles are Financial in nature, but we often recruit tournament players to do Insider features.  Rather than displaying advertising, we just ask the readers who enjoy the content to subscribe.   This allows our casual readers to peruse the free content to their heart's content, but it provides serious traders with a great resource to hone their skills.

You'll be able to use our forums as a free member, but the best parts are reserved for our Insider supporters, of course.  This includes the single card discussion forum for tips & tech, the reseller reviews forum, and the Ask the Author forum.

We have big plans for some tools, features and other goodies down the road, and will eventually be rolling out these features as optional upgrades, much like many online software sites do.  These will be optional, and you can choose to sign up for as few or as many as you'd like.  We'll have more details as they develop, and if you've got a project you'd like to share with us, we encourage you to get in touch!

The signup process is effortless; you'll get access immediately, and payment is set up by using a recurring payment in PayPal.  That means we can't steal your credit card to buy ten thousand Grizzly Bears.  You'll get a short trial period, just in case you decide Insider's not for you.  After the free trial period expires, you'll get billed automatically so you don't experience an interruption in subscription.  If you don't want to keep your subscription active, you can cancel it at any time, and your subscription will be terminated at the end of your last-paid subscription period (one month from your last payment).

$8.99 is less than the cost of most sleeves you'll buy for a tournament, less than the cost of a single Mythic Rare, and less than the cost of lunch.  Your cost per article will be approximately 45 cents.  If you do not make more than you are paying for your subscription by following the advice from our talented financial columnists, we will cancel your membership and immediately refund your money without a fuss.  Promise.

If you have any trouble, questions or you just want to say hi, shoot an email to and we'll get back to you promptly!  We pride ourselves on the best customer service in the game.   Thanks so much for being a reader, and if you'd like to get started reading all the juicy financial content, sign up now!
