I got a foil Canopy Vista in my first Battle For Zendikar draft today, and apparently it’s worth LESS than a non-foil version on Magic Online. Yeah, that makes sense. #MTGOFinance

Unsolicited recommendation: I’m a big fan of using Cardhoarder.com to buy and trade MTGO cards. I use their bots (CardhoarderBuyBot) to quickly turn the higher-value cards from draft and sealed pools into event tickets for more draft and sealed events. CH’s buy prices are pretty good compared to selling to most bots, and is faster than waiting for humans to trade.
I also like that you can pay with PayPal or Credit for a discount from paying with tickets, which is a good call if you’re going to buy the bulk of a deck at once. I’ve done that a few times – bought a deck off of CH, played a bunch of events, then vendor-sold back the deck (often gaining value on cards that have appreciated during the time I played with them, particularly fetch lands and other tier 1 cards) to use the tickets on other cards or events (or sell them for cash to ticket vendors online).
When you’re mediocre at the game, it basically works out to be a decent deck rental system in the long run.
