Here is an unboxing I did, earlier today, of the new version of The Deckbuilder’s Toolkit.
I notice that there is a new 2011 version of the Deckbuilders Toolkit set for release March 11th, 2011. For more information click here.
If you are lucky enough to live in the US, I have already seen a couple of places discounting the $19.99 MRSP down to $14.99.
Just a quick post to give a heads-up for MTG product that is ‘appearing’ at Strange Adventures in Halifax, NS.
I’ve been visiting Strange Adventures on a fairly regular basis since becoming resident in Nova Scotia, and noticed that they did stock a small amount of Magic: The Gathering stuff (Booster Packs, Intro Decks and Fat Packs). However, recently, some interesting things have been turning up there:
1. The Deck Builders Toolkit (I don’t know the ‘age’ of these, so there is no way of telling what boosters are inside as Wizards do update the content of theses as new sets come out but they don’t indicate on the outside what sets they are from.
2. Seventh Edition Starter Pack (I belive this was the last core set product to contain a printed rulebook, it also contains 2 ‘comic style’ play guides, 2 x 30 card decks, 1 foil card, 2 x paper playmats, a CD-ROM, and an interesting booster that has specifically selected cards to augment the 2 decks.
3. Land Station (This was the most unusual find as these are normally brought by TO’s to provide land for sealed deck tournaments now that WPN now don’t give out land for free, and they contain 400 Basic Lands from the most recent core set, not a spectacular product by any means just unusual to find on the shelves of a retail location)
So, on Saturday I got hold of my Deck Builder’s Toolkit from Quantum Frontier http://www.quantumfrontier.ca/
Once I got it home I filmed various stages of the unboxing and I have been editing and uploading to YouTube over the weekend. Check out this link to take you to the playlist to see all the parts of the unboxing.
The card lists, for each pack in the box, are at the end of the Description for each video.
I hope to do some more videos about the economics of starting up Magic: The Gathering and various buying/trading strategies that are open to players/collectors. This is particularly aimed at players with limited resources who would still like to play with some degree of competitiveness.
Really looking forward to checking out the Deck Builders Toolkit when it is released on Friday 21st May 2010.
So far I have heard that Quantum Frontier http://www.quantumfrontier.ca/index.html are stocking it and I will update this post once I find out who else is stocking the Deck Builders Toolkit, as I become aware of them in and around Halifax/Dartmouth and beyond. I am also hoping to do a proper breakdown of the product once I get my hands on one, which I will then post on YouTube. In the meantime here are some videos that have already been posted by Star City Games in relation to the Deck Builders Toolkit.
