This guy on Deviantart made this and it makes me cringe on more than one level.I just want to know, if I am not the only one that feels that way.
They just look like regular mana cards, not holographic or old prints. It may look stupid, but it doesn't make me cringe at all
Anyone playing for a while has more basic lands than what they know to do with. When I was rebuilding my collection, I bought 1000 for $5 from a store. They're basically worthless.As long as that deckbox can fit sleeves, it's a pretty neat idea. I think it would have looked better if he had the card backs showing on the outside instead, though.
>>539829nigga they're basic lands and the books looks neat and well done. it's just you.
>>539834i think if the flap, front, back, and sides represented each mana color it would be pretty neat
Hi, can you please watch my video please? and tell me if you like my singing.Thanks ;)
I like it
They don't fold very well and the printed ink flakes off after a while when folded like that. Those are my only complaints as I do not play Magic nor do I know anything about it.
He destroyed magic cards, that makes me happy.
>>539829>bending your cardsholy fuck i dont care how many cards you have bending them is a sin

Forgive me, Ray Bradbury
>>539829Who cares? They're land cards. There's like a billon of them for every other card. Grow the fuck up. Nerd like a man, pussy.
>>540431Why do you trash them instead of burn them of give them away? Why rip the cover off as well?
>>539831>mana cardsIt's called "lands", anon. It's right there on the card.
>>540454>If you purchased this book without a cover you should be aware that this book is stolen property. It was reported as "unsold and destroyed" to the publisher and neither the author nor the publisher has received any payment for this "stripped book."
>>540586>nobody wanted to pay for it so absolutely nobody can have it, because fuck sharing and fuck people ! It's like when foodstore put bleach on their unsold groceries so no hobo can eat them...
>>540587It makes bookkeeping easier for publishers; bookstores report how many books went unsold and they are marked as such, so it makes stolen merchandise harder to sell.
>>539831>>539834>>539837>>540453OP mentioned more than one level of cringe, give him more credit instead of stating the OBIVOUS...it's cringeworthy because it's an ugly product of 10 seconds of an autistic 12-year-old's imagination and 2 minutes of his labor>>539873>>539874YOU'RE VIDEO IS SHIT LUL
>>540616>YOU'RE VIDEO IS SHIT LULYou meant "Your*", of course.
>>539829Dude, they're basic lands. They're not even full art. People leave them on tables at card shops, on top of the store owner giving them out for free. The only thing they did wrong was make it too small for sleeved cards.
You may have autism if such a small thing can induce any sort of cringe. Its a neat little trinket made out of excessive lands, thats all there is to it.
>>539829He probably thought he was cool for making that. You should let him know what a fucking autistic fuckwit he is
>>540616>anime reaction imageOpinion discarded
>>539829They're common, inexpensive cards being used to create something useful and - I think - somewhat interesting. I don't see your problem.
>>539829It bothers me that it's all held together with bend cards, if there was a better casing made from something else with the lands cut to size as decoration I'd be fine with it. Currently it just looks like crap where it's bend and the flaps are completely useless.
>>539829I specifically selected that full frontal forest for my old Sigarda commander deck before I dismantled it and sold it for food money.
>>539829Congrats on creating the most autistic thread on a fucking papercraft and origami board
>>539887You're on the slowest board on the chans and you still fuck up.
>>542711it's my first time on this board, it might not be elite folding prowess but, as an mtg player I think it's neat.
>>540588It's still retarded. It doesn't mean you couldn't mark them down as unsold and give them away regardless, who the fuck would know? If people aren't going to buy it from the store and it's going to end up as literal garbage I don't think the ((((publishers)))) need to worry about missing out on too many shekels from "thieves" selling them.
>>539829Seriously shouldn't talk shit about this.He had an idea, and saw it through.Show me your first paper craft....
>>540431Jesus Christ. I don't think I'd have the fortitude to keep that up
>>542728They do it because consumers are more sneaky and backhanded than you give them credit for. The reason why produce is thrown away and not given away when it is going bad is because no sane person would buy the product if they could get it for free 4 days later. Its a counter productive business model that is centered around how consumers think.
>>542752>>542706>>542867>>542892>fake nerd bois not knowing what a bend test is
>>542697I don't play magic but even i have heard of the black lotus.
>>543068You can add >>543105 to the mix.
>>540688Are you that new?
>>542697MTG sellers bend cards to test if they are real or counterfeited.counterfeited cards usually bends and stay bent, real cards are made of good quality materials and return to their normal shape [spoiler] at least for the first 3 times in their lifetime [/spoiler]>>539829Land cards are extremely low value(both selling value, and personal utility value) in MtG, and those are some of the ugliest forests i've ever seen.Some stores even gift a pack of them to new players. for free.he probably would have spent more by purchasing a small sheet of plastic/cardboard to make it.
>>542873As someone who volunteers at their local food bank, and has also worked in a few retail/grocery stores, I can verify that this is partially true.The other side of it is simply that many establishments are ignorant of what to do with "old" produce and throw it out. I've heard stories of places that do indeed contaminate what they throw out, but that's not exactly the norm.In the places I've been, it's pretty simple to just speak with the management and propose a deal with food banks. Most of them have the paperwork for it, and the company gets to write it off. It's a win-win that the average person just doesn't think of.As for books and magazines... well you're just shit out of luck. It's highly unlikely that the local library wants them, as they also occasionally get rid of their own books as well. Obviously the interest isn't there if you're not selling them.In this day and age you just deal with it. There's most likely a digital copy out there, and you can rest easy knowing that they're most likely going to be recycled.
>>543165I liked the Unhinged land cards...might be due to it having a full portrait which shows how good it looks.
>>543368yeah and ung lands are like 10 bucks each you know
>>540616The creator isn't pretending it's god's gift to man, he's not selling it on eBay. He just posted it on DeviantArt to show off his idea.>>540431>have a friend who works graveyard at chain supermarket>he always saves a trash bag of one-day expired frozen meals and hands them out to homeless people on his way home from work>homeless guy calls corporate and thanks them for good friend's gifts>friend gets canned the next dayGod bless our corporate overlords.
>>539829Makes me cringe too. It is all wrong.
>>539829Care to explain HOW this upsets you?>>545407What's going on in this picture?
>>540587That's partly because hobos have sued companies (mostly fast food places) because they got food poisoning from their trash cans.Am I still on /po/? This is starting to feel like another board.
>>542873Except that grocery stores actually do donate some of that stuff. There was a place next door to my grandfather's apartment that got donations from the supermarkets in the area of expiring food that old people could go in and grab for free.
>>543068The bend test will eventually ruin cards if done enough. Plus I've seen people fold cards in half to bend-check them. Anyone who's played magic for a while knows how a card feels, rendering the test unnecessary. If I were looking to sell any card worth over $10 I'd hike the price 1.5x if they did the damned bend test.
Pretty funny how obvious it is to differentiate between people who play Magic, people who don't play Magic, and people who are pretending they play Magic in this thread. Basic lands are fucking worthless and can be treated like toilet paper for all anyone should care. Making a deck box out of them is a cool and useful idea that should only be cringey because of the way it was crafted and the choice in art.Now THIS, this is a cringe worthy set of cards.
>>546593Please please please tell me those aren't real power 9 cards with art mods. I fear it is based on the price tag, WHY would anyone do this? I can't believe anyone would throw away thousands of dollars of rare cards for my little pony while actually being aware of their value.
>>546690If someone buys them at that price, doesn't it mean ponyshit "art mod" cards are worth just as much as the original cards? Both magic and mlp are fictional toy franchises--it's not like a WoC card with particular words and pictures on it is an inherently valuable object. Basically it sounds like what you are saying is "I'm jealous of someone who owned those cards and didn't use them for the purpose I would've liked to."
>>546707I'm extremely jealous because they're the most valuable and rarest cards in MTG because of their limited print and their overpowered effects in the game itself. Modifying them makes them effectively worthless to a collector and no one would even think of buying those for that price without being completely retarded. You're bitching that limited printed things which can't easily be obtained have value, 'fictional toy franchises' can still have a large domestic gross and as such be worth alot of money you troglodyte and none of your 'I don't care about that thing so its cost should be $0' has any affect on the market.
>>546758I don't at all mean to imply that things like rare Magic cards don't or shouldn't have value. Rather, I'm saying both MTG and MLP are niche interests with a number of extremely devoted fans who are clearly willing to pour quite a lot of money into their (strange to outsiders) hobby. Items appealing to these fans are certainly valuable because they can be sold at a high price, yet to someone uninvolved in the hobby, they would seem to be worthless. If you think defacing the cards in this way is a waste, aren't you essentially in the same position as some "outsider" who sees all Magic cards as more or less worthless in the first place? They have been removed from the sphere of "things you care about," but potentially become valuable and desirable to someone else. Now, of course it's possible that the new niche for those defaced cards has become so small that there isn't actually anyone who is willing to buy them, although I don't think any of us knows whether that is the case or not. It's also perfectly reasonable to argue that MLP fans, especially ones who want to spend thousands of dollars on their hobby, are annoying, detestable, etc. But if you are someone who personally places a high value on paper cards from a "fictional toy franchise" such as MTG, you might want to be careful about throwing stones.
>>545415If it's what I think it is, they're making Christmas tree decorations (like baubles).
>>539829isn't it just basic lands? whats the problem?
>>543365I knew someone worked at a pizza place, used to put the "mistake" pizzas on some cardboard next to the dumpster so hobos could take them rather than ruin them. place got fined and told to stop
Hey. This is somewhat unrelated but I've got a really annoying deck and it has nothing but "Tap target creature, It doesn't untap during your opponent's next untap step."Now i figured being a complete dick wasn't enough so I came up with "Why not put on little snowmen on my opponents creatures to make them potentially completely lose their shit." Would love this one since it seems easy to craft and i'm shit at papercrafts, but can honestly be anything: snowflake, xmas tree, ice block... i don't care. Just give me something relatively white I can print with relatively low color since i'm out of color tint. TLDR; I'd like a file for a simple snowman, possibly pic related, if not, anything simple & ice related with not much color on it. kkthxbai
What is up, mah honky brethren?
>>539942there basic fucking lands the one thing that will never run out
>>546593i honestly dont mind some of those alters the pearl and sapphire in particular look greatbut i dont understand what the fuck posessed the guy to use real fucking moxen for it.i liked the lands though those are nice
I'm glad I never got into something as autistic as a tgc. Although I've spent a very large amount of time playing video games and watching anime, which could probably be considered even more worthless.
>>547327he says as he posts on the papercraft board
>>546690at least the guru duals are pretty nifty
>>540454Giving them away would encourage people to not buy books and simply wait for the stock to be old. It's the same reason GameStop throws away video games.It's not a practice I agree with, but that's the way it is.They also rip the covers off to return to their vendor, it acts as proof that the book didn't sell, so they get refunded, plus as another user stated it's to prevent people from dumpster diving and reselling trashed booked, which is a problem due to the first thing I said.There's nothing to stop you from getting the books out of the dumpster for yourself however, unless you're above dumpster diving.
>>540431>>547552is there a way I can get free books and games that people are about to bin
>>539829At least he's only fucking up lands. Honestly, I think it's a neat idea; if he managed to make the cuts a bit better, and figure out a better way to crease the lid, it could probably look really sweet.
>>539834>>539829OP did u make dis :3
>Portal land cardsI haven't played MTG since like 1999, but even then, those things were worth a nickel.
>>539829My brother cut out the picture of hundreds of those cards back in '95 and stuck them on his wall. Ruined the wall.
>>550077Those are not Portal lands.
>>546593No way that is real, that's the most cringe worthy defacement I've ever seen.

>>539829As a magic player... I think it looks pretty dumb
>>542697This makes me happy for some reason
>>542697No crease no problem. Grab a common card and try yourself.
>>543068Bend tests are useless with good counterfeits and puts a lot of stress in the card.Use a good testing like light ones or a decent magnifier to check the print.If you ever try to bend one of my moxes I'd fucking kill you.
>>539829A deck case made out of mana cards? I dunno, looks fine to me. I think I may even like that someone did that. XD
>>540431you have to. tearing off the cover proves to publisher they were destroyed not sold. it's a business/copyright thing
>>545407theres a huge liability problem with giving out expired food. if your friend wanted to do a good deed he could just buy it in date with his employee discount rather than feed people trash.it's a thing because otherwise you get corporations getting a tax writeoff for freezer meltdowns that aren't actually safe to eat, or well meaning idiots poisoning people.the bigger problem is that canada actually destroys fresh drinkable milk to keep prices up because of how their subsidies are done. literally dumps hundreds of gallons of the stuff down the drain rather than seize it for poor people. or how usa uts funding to states that try to tell you what you can or can't buy with foodstamps
>>555341you bendtest one of my cards you've just doubled the price. that shit damages them long term. put the money on the table before you touch it and guarantee you're buying if it passes, no weaseling out or changing your mind
>>539829would be cooler if it was a cigarette box
>>545407mtg "bondage edition"intriguing
>>556497it was that employee's solo action, i seriously doubt that'd create a legal liability for the companyunless the company is under legal obligation to make every reasonable effort to prevent people from accessing their expired food, then it's a problem
>>556497>>557667Even if it was a problem of liability a lot of food is good even days or week after expiry (yogurts for example).In my country some stores were pourring bleach on the food they throwed away to be sure no one would eat it. This is illegal now and they are supposed to give away their unsold food (aid association, food for animals, compost etc...)
>>556497>the bigger problem is that canada actually destroys fresh drinkable milk to keep prices up because of how their subsidies are doneWhat the fuck?
>>540616>it's cringeworthy because it's an ugly product of 10 seconds of an autistic 12-year-old's imagination and 2 minutes of his laborDoes that make it any less valid as a papercraft? It brings happiness to the person using it and a that's kind of neat reaction to some people that see it.

>>540431Have a friend who worked at a book store where they did this to prove to the publisher for refund purposes. It comes down to the shipping costs for the proof.

His reasoning was it's the Bible as read by the voice of God, Himself. He's not even a religious-fag but just having a copy of that read by James Earl Jones is basically priceless.When I worked at Staples, there was a guy who'd come in once a month and do this to all of our unsold magazines. Drove me nuts. We'd take the ones with good material to places like doctors' offices or dentists' waiting rooms. Stuff like that. Or homeless camps so they could use them for whatever (TP, bedding, fire starting).I still have books from my youth. That's how you start a personal library, so yeah, I feel your pain.
