Why the FUCK do people get doodles on the cards they buy? do some mtg players actually enjoy throwing away all their money? I mean, I only waste my money because I want to play, but I always protect my investment.
>>
The most expensive card I even had anything drawn on is a pack rat. I traded my pack rat to a guy at the show who is pretty cool and told him he HAD to sign it. I have done this with a zendikar forest, a boomarang, rugged highlands, and a ravens crime.

So I can understand having signatures or art on your cards, but not anything that is valuable, and if its art and not a signature it better be good and not something awful like that.
>>
Maybe some people don't see MtG cards as an "investment".
>>
>>45064964
Basically autism.
>>
>>45064964
I've only commissioned three alters in my 12 years playing this game and none of those cards were worth more than $10. People who get expensive cards altered like the OP pic are fucking idiots
>>
>>45064964
There ARE a few cards I'd want to get altered.
...but they're all the nuslivers, and that's to make them look something more like the classic design. Something like that is just dumb, but at least it's not as bad as the Power Nine covered in ponies.
>>
>>45064964
Art extensions can look pretty good, but nothing that fundamentally changes the art of the card.

The one area where I'll give some leeway for drastic changes is when a card has suffered some superficial damage that the new art either covers up or integrates into a piece.
>>
Are you allowed to play with altered cards (like the jace in the op) in sanctioned tournaments (ex gp or scg opens)?
>>
idk, I know I'd feel like an idiot if I spent 80 on a piece of cardboard, and immediately pissed away all value the card had

I believe you can, so long as the mana cost name text box ect are not covered in any way, like in op. But I can see it being something judges would be called over frequently for especially at higher rules levels.
>>
>>45065210
It's actually just name and mana cost that need to be uncovered, text box technically can be covered - but ANY alter needs to be cleared with the judges beforehand, to ensure there isn't any kind of problem in regards to out of game information (writing USE ON CARD X), marked cards (weighing it more), or really tasteless stuff (no nudity and stuff like that)

Because they plan to keep them, and by making them unique it makes them less likely to be stolen because they are identifable, and not worth anything.
But really the resale value is irrelevant if you don't plan to sell them.
But for fucks sake at least get good art.
The OP picture is just fucking ugly.

Also, if the artist's fee for your alter didn't cost more than the card itself did you're doing it wrong.

To each their own. I love alters, it adds a level of personality to my cards and having had my collection stolen this anon >>45066794 speak the true true. Plus they look cooler than foiling out a deck when done right

I planned on getting a local artist to custom paint my affinity deck, pic related is her style of painting, but I decided I didn't like playing affinity anymore. I might get her to alter my future sight goyfs, snapcaster and cryptics though.

You could at least find a good alter to poke your opinion at rather then the shit you found, alters can be a neat way to make a card yours, especially if its some cheap card you could care less about the cost of losing but is a key part of your deck, something like lingering souls or grapeshot. Or commander cards sense you only have one of a card why not make your dispel or counterspell look nice.

i think some of those weren't actually to bad

i dident see the point but the art itself was at least adequate on all of them and on a few fix in amazingly well

I have one altered card, not counting artist signatures.

It's a Nylea, God of the Hunt that I brought to GP Portland and had altered by the artist, who basically gave added definition to her armor and made her bow extend past the frame of the art.

It makes them completely worthless. This in turn makes stealing them for profit or play impossible as they would be caught very quickly.

People are just stupid enough to accept poor quality work. It's a shame, because I can paint alters, but because of the general incompetence, their prices are low, and I wouldn't be able to give a fair price, since people would think it is too high, using the poor quality alters' price as reference

Are we talking Holo or Awoo~?

I'm fine with either. Preferably Holo.
>>
>>45088171

A van will eventually break down and become useless anyway, so if you're planning on keeping it painting on it won't matter.

Altering a magic card is more like buying a pricey painting and then drawing mustaches on it. A magic card, like a painting, won't depreciate in value the same way a van does. If you take care of it it's basically an investment.
>>
>>45073012
But this *is* practice?

Usually Holo, just because any thread about economics on here used to turn into a Holo thread. I don't really mind awoo~ personally.
