Froglok Herbalist and the new expansion.

So - I wanted one but didn't want to buy 3 booster packs for a set that is about to be obsolete in a week.

There were about 50 peeps offering 1 froglok herbalist for one booster (some for more)

So I set up a trade with MY booster pack for their herbalist and the remaining rares I didn't have and 2 -3 Uncommons I wanted anotehr card for - and blamo - got the trade.

Meanwhile - the same day I got a booster pack for a trade of about 3 foils and 2 cards I threw in to make it look better. I picked up 2 of the foils and 1 of the cards from a trade I had taken (1 of my boosters for about 8 cards) because I really just wanted one card in that trade but knew I would be able to swing the foils back out.

So while I don't have 4 X of every card in Oathbound - I have at least 1 of every card minus a couple Promos (one of the new cards from last weekend - and Hatred - which I think I have an unclaimed coppy of lying around).

This is all from a game I barely thought I would want to play. now I think I have played about 140 Timed games. More than I thought I would ever play.

Funny thing is - I have only opened about 8 boosters since Beta. And I wish I hadn't opened them! hah - Since beta and in those 8 boosters not a single loot type or foil at all. Be great with the new expansion - I should be able to buy 1 Booster pack from it - and then trade my old oathbound boosters for 50 X commons from the new deck! woot!

Look at you Serano, the Serano 6 months ago would be ashamed!

Not only are you enjoying playing the game, but you are now bit by what card gamers have been suffering since MTG.

Collectors Paradise !

It's fun ain't it?

I don't know what that is.

but yes - When I saw this game unvealed at Fan Faire - I was like Worff. This is the dumbest thing...

But as I had never played TCGs ever - and I used to enjoy being bad at strategy games - I can continue the practice.

But at a certain point I will be running out of things to trade.

I am looking to either play in this Saturdays Tourney which costs $10 which provides 3 boosters (oathbound) 1 New Firona Vie Card (avatar healing) and a visage of Queen Pirounas Loot card - OR buy the tourney pack in 2 weeks when it comes out - not sure. I am pretty sure I will NOT place in the top 6 of 128 that would make me eligible for more than 3 boosters. Dunno atm.

But then I will prolly buy at least ONE booster for the new game on each account. But plan on using those 2 boosters and the 3 I have in stock and the 3 from the tourney pack in trading for commons and uncommons on the new set.

10 new scenarios.

Herbalist is kind of cool - I would see some good potential in a blue or yellow deck.

His cost is a bit high @ 4, if they'd drop it down to 3 I'd consider using em.

Hey Serano - I think I need to take a gander at your cards and see what I can gank from you :P

I might have some commons you don't if you are not 4 on all commons. but - there are only a couple of Uncommons I have more than 4 of if any - and VERY few rares are at 4. but sure.

So how is that Frog obtained? is he now included in boosters?

Some guy was using him against me the other night and that card is quite good

You - MAY have missed the boat - check real quick and they MAY still eb avail.

They were set to go for 7 days starting 3 PM PST Last monday. Buy 3 Boosters of Oathbound and get a Froglock.

HOWEVER I got mine by trading ONE booster for the froglok PLUS the last 5 rare cards I didn't have a single copy of. There are still a lot of frogs for trade - but might be better off to post a trade for one of them for a booster plus any other cards you think is fair - instead of taking the posted trades trying to score a booster for the one card.

THe other day I posted a trade giving away a Priest starter deck for one card and got the card !! WOOT. that card was better than all the junk in the starter deck. hah hah.
