How We Are Going To Sell “From The Vault: Annihilation”

sittgfpobs_arc1426_logo

Hello!

It’s THAT time of year again- where the good people at Wizards Of The Coast (WOTC) release the latest From The Vault (FTV) gift set!

You may not know this, but FTV is an extremely LIMITED item; a lot of people have called and asked to preorder it from me, but truth to tell: we have zero control over how many of this item we can get. In all honesty, we are given an allocation (small quantity) based on the number of events we host with no chance of getting more (absolute zero). So, there is no way we can accept preorders if we can’t get the number we need to fill them- does this make sense to you? This is the way FTV has always been distributed- this is nothing new unfortunately =(

So, what’re we going to do with our allocation?

We’re going to sell them for the MSRP to our loyal and supporting customers based on:

1. Magic Prerelease Attendance since the previous FTV came out: this includes Theros, Born Of The Gods, Journey Into Nyx, and Magic 2015 prereleases AND

2. Booster Box Preorders of each set since the previous FTV came out: this includes Theros, Born Of The Gods, Journey Into Nyx, and Magic 2015 AND

3. All Other Purchases Made Here

We’ve used the same criteria for each and every FTV that have come out. And right now, you probably know if I’ll have a FTV for you this year or not just by looking at the above criteria. We want to make our supporters happy- they support us and this is the least we can do for them. If there are any extra gift set(s), I plan on hosting either a booster draft or sealed event in September for it where it will be given away as a RANDOM prize.

If you have any questions, please contact me via email ([email protected]) or drop by when there isn’t an event going on. Please no phone calls (sorry but anyone that calls will be referred to this message and given my email).

I’ll be contacting everyone that I have a FTV for early next week, and our shipment should be in by Friday, August 22.

Thanks for reading!

FROM THE VAULT (FTV) 20 Arrives August 23!

ftv-20

** PLEASE READ **

Hello!

Our FTV20 shipment is expected to arrives this August 23, 2013 and we wil be selling it for the Canadian MSRP! For those of you who are not familiar with this product, FTV is a premium gift set that comes out once a year (at the end of Summer) and has some of the best cards ever printed- and a special preview card for the set coming out later in the Fall!

But there’s a problem: Wizards Of The Coast (WOTC) has made this an EXTREMELY rare item. Despite what people think, I cannot ask WOTC for the quantity that I need, they just give me what’s called an “Allocation.” This Allocation isn’t enough for everyone here- not even close. So, what’re we going to do???

As always with limited release items, we NEVER take preorders or sell them first-come, first-serve. NEVER. That would be a disservice to all of those people who come here and support me. Our entire shipment will be distributed among all those people who:

1. Play In Our Prerelease, Launch, Game Day, AND POSTrelease events

2. Place Preorders For Magic Boosters Box Whenever A New Set Is Released

3. Make All Of Their Other Purchases Here

Unfortunately, if you don’t meet all 3 of the above criteria, then I’m very sorry but I can’t help you. If you just started playing Magic here in say Dragon’s Maze, but weren’t here for the other sets that were released before the previous FTV, then I’m very sorry again but I won’t have a FTV20 for you. If you only play in our FREE FNM events or play/order product on an irregular basis, I’m sorry but there are too many people that meet the above requirement that are ahead of you on our list. If you purchase Warhammer or Warmachine here and only recently started playing Magic (Dragon’s Maze), I do appreciate your support I cannot ignore the purchases of others who have done everything I’ve asked and more.

This is not meant to read as a slight to anyone, nor is it meant to create a distinction or class structure among our customer base. The reality is: we don’t have enough to go around, so we’re going to make sure the people that have gone out of their way to support me (see #1, 2, and 3) get product so they will continue to come back and do so. It’s just that simple- there is no malice in what I’m doing- I’m trying my best to make sure our doors stay open and not upset anyone that I do not have to.

Thank you for reading.

Modern Masters Is Here!

Modern Masters is here!

Our plan is:

1. Host any many Modern Master ($34) Booster Drafts as we can! We’ll post our schedule soon!

UPDATE: With our supply starting to dwindle and prices for boxes soaring on eBay and around town, we’ve decided to raise our entry fee to $40 + GST. That prices includes three packs to draft with and then one pack that goes into the prize pool (40-50% = 1st place, 20-25% = 2nd place, 10-15% = 3rd and 4th, and 0-10% = random. Keep in mind these are approximations depending on how many people enter our event).

 

2. Sell our remaining shipment to those who’ve supported us by playing in our Prerelease events and making all of their purchases here! If you’re one of those people, please send me a message phone (780-459-9548), email ([email protected]), or FaceBook PM as soon as you can! We’re running out of stock!

Thanks and have a great week!

“GATECRASH” SUPPLIES DWINDLE…

Do you know what’s an unfortunate consequence of releasing a really, really good Magic set?

It sells out quickly.

Our supply of Gatecrash Boosters, Fatpacks, and Intro Decks are dwindling! We have enough product to fill all of our preorders and to use in our two events (Midnight Launch and Launch Parties), but I strongly doubt we’ll have enough to last the weekend. So, if you’re looking for Gatecrash, and haven’t placed any preorders, come in as soon as possible!

The plus side?

Restock is set to arrive Thursday, February 7, 2013!

Thanks to everyone who played in our Prerelease and Launch events!

Gatecrash 2HG Sunday, January 27 at 10 AM?

Is there any interest in a 2HG event on Sunday, Janaury 27 at 10 AM?

2HG = Teams of 2 VS Teams of 2! Each team receives two Faction or Guild Packs (inside a Faction Or Guild Pack are: 5 boosters of Gatecrash, 1 Guild booster pack (which is pretty much the fixed cards for each guild from their respective Intro Deck), 1 Guild promo card (which you can actually use in the event you received it at), 1 Achievement card, 1 Spindown Lifecounter, and 1 Guild Symbol Sticker!)

Your goal is to make 2 decks (minimum 40 cards each) out of your card pool and play!

We will do 3 rounds and each round is “best of one“.

If you’re interested in playing in either the Saturday or the Sunday 2HG event, please send me an email ([email protected])!
