I am running a seasonal power exchange, where people will get a random Magic: the Gathering card from their secret Elder Dragon (I love when they give up their power so easily). If you are interested in receiving (and giving, though it is the receiving season) a card then you must PM me.

Your PM must include: (all five are required for each participant, follow instructions or be denied participation in my Grixmas Ceremony)
    Name
    Address
    Additional Contact see Note 1
    Limiting Information see Note 2
    Regional Information see Note 3

I also require a PM to be sent within 48hrs when a package is sent or received. Tracking is not required but is highly encouraged (especially since, for US residents, flat rate Priority mail comes with free tracking and $50 free insurance) and if used, the tracking information should be in the "Package sent" PM as well.

Failure to PM your contact information by the deadline will preclude inclusion in this season;s event.
Failure to PM package information (when you send or receive) will prevent participation in next year's program. You have been warned.

Please feel free to post a 'requests' post with the type of cards that you would be most excited about getting (remember, you're not going to get a [b]Black Lotus[/c] so keep it realistic and remember these are requests. You are not guaranteed to get any of them). Because I always encourage the defacement of property, alters are always encouraged; especially "sharpy" based items. Previously successful request schema include:

    Linking a decklist from which options may be chosen (if you reference a deck... Link it!)
    Altered/Promo versions of Generals being played
    Alter Requests - Specific card(s) (something like "Altered Storm Crow" - Tim Proctor's request)
    Alter Requests - Specific theme (something like "any card altered to My Little Pony theme" - Sid's Request)
    Cards signed by the sender
    Interesting Generals (altered or not)
    Old cards that would not see printing now (abilities out of rarity or color like Sindbad, odd effects like Balduvian Shaman)
    Tokens (altered or not)

This is an EDH forum so EDH staples are probably the best type of card to send. Also altered or signed versions of cards help make your gift unique. Changes to what you are wishing for should be made by updating the original request post (since that will be linked to your name on the next post). Also, it is advisable that you PM me and/or post in the thread that you have updated your request information.

The second post of this thread will have all information summarized and linked by participant, once participants are confirmed. (see Grixmas 2014 Summary for an example)

Note 1 wrote:

Participation requires that either you can be emailed through the forums, or if you have that feature turned off you supply an email address. Email addresses are also required for Donations SASE use and/or Paypal donations. The point is that I need some way other than Forum PM to contact you should plans drastically change with minimal notice.


Note 2 wrote:

If you will be away from the registration address provided for greater than 48 hours between 1 Dec 2015 and 15 Jan 2016, please provide that information.
Reasons may include (but are not limited to) Vacation, Holiday Travel, Business Travel, Moving, and being too lazy to check your mail regularly. Otherwise, please put N/A in the registration if there is no planned "away time," and should that changed notify me as soon as possible so arrangements can be made regarding delivery.


Note 3 wrote:

If participation is limited by region, include what region (Country(ies), Continent(s), Region(s)) to which you are willing to send. If you have no problems victimizing anyone, put N/A or Global. If I cannot pair somebody with a regional limitation, I will PM them back and we can discuss options.



I am accepting donations early for the running of this program (rather than waiting until Murphy strikes). Your options, should you choose to donate, are:

- Mail a single card, personally altered and signed (good or bad, but not professionally altered unless you are the professional). The card should be from an EDH Pre-con -or- less than $1 (or local currency)
-- For those who wish to donate but shipping is prohibitive, I will send a SASE (or equivilent) for you to send the donation. PM for details.
- For those that prefer monetary donations, PM for my Paypal or other options. This will mostly go towards SASE coverage for card donations and shipping of prizes.

Send donations to:
Nic Bolas
15 Brasseler Blvd Apt L17
Savannah, GA 31419-5215

Cards received will first be used to cover any packages that are lost to the mail. The goal is to have a bank of cards before any packages are lost, so there is no waiting time for donations to replace lost packages. All the remaining donations will be used for the season closing vote on most seasonal/appropriate gift.

I am trying to build a Damia, Sage of Stone deck with altered/sighed/foil cards. Steve Argyle is at SLC Comiccon right now so hopefully I can get some stuff signed. Unfortunately, I can't go but I have a few friends that are there.

Demands:
I confine my foiling urge to my Funzur deck, but there are only a few cards yet to ask for left for it: I could use foils of Thassa, Disdainful Stroke, Angel of Jubilation, or Unquestioned Authority. In the spirit of Grixmas, I will also bring myself to demand 10th Edition foil Wrath of God and Beta Control Magic. I'm so overcome with Grixmas spirit right now that I should also mention Expedition Godless Shrine; best expedition art by a mile.

Beyond that, I really only go for foils and alters of commanders. I currently have these commanders who are in Plain Jane mode: Titania, Protector of Argoth, Sliver Queen, The Mimeoplasm, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden, Zirilan (would love an alter of him playing with some Zildjians), Karametra, God of Harvests, and Endrek Sahr.

I could also use tokens for Titania, Protector of Argoth, Sliver Queen, and Endrek Sahr; you can never have enough 5/3 Elementals, 1/1 Slivers, 6/6 Beasts, or 1/1 Thrulls. 0/1 Serf tokens (from Sengir Autocrat) would be cool, too, though they don't exist.

I also like weird old cards with out-of-pie effects (examples that I already have and play in EDH include Glacial Crevasses, Amnesia, Darkness, and such the like) and old cards with about 3 pages of text (again with examples I already have, things like Camouflage, Word of Command, Ice Cauldron, Tawnos's Coffin, etc.). If you want delight me with your initiative, find me oddball old cards that are EDH-playable that I haven't thought of yet. You could also delight me with Caverns of Despair or Raging River if you want to go for the route of cards that I have a specific urge to acquire.

Oh, and Spinal Villain. He has butts for eyes, and he poops to see.

Aura Shards
Primal Growth
Any altered Goblins (particularly Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Warrens)
Altered versions of either Alesha, Omnath or Ghave (Omnath as Snorlax or Ghave as Tangela/Tangrowth would make all my Grixmas dreams come true)

I'm in a bit of an awkward place with regards to Commander. I've not really played it a lot recently as all of my Magic playing friends have returned to their home countries (as will I be doing so in January). My interest has waned somewhat and I've not really built any new decks lately.

So, right now I'm looking for things to reignite my interest in Commander. I'd be especially interested in out-of-colour effect cards (especially in Blue, Black, and Red, but I'll also be happy with White and Green ones too), interesting and/or less-seen Generals, and altered EDH staples.

It's time to divvy donations with the prize winning vote to end the Grixmas Season. In true Grixmas fashion, you can base your votes on whatever criteria you wish. However, you may not vote for yourself or the gift you received. Packages that were sent after Christmas are ineligible, sorry.

Each person's gift image(s) post is linked below. Review all the gifts received and use the Recipient's Name on the spoiler tag to vote (because that is easier than tracking who sent to whom, and it is already linked by who received)

This is what I need from everybody. People that did not participate this year are still eligible to vote (the more votes, the better) as well. Please PM the following quote to Bolas with the names of your nominations:

Quote:
<NAME> for Winner Nomination (worth 5 points)
<NAME> for Runner Up Nomination (worth 3 points)
<NAME> for Gutter Nomination (worth 1 point)


I will tally all the votes received by 14 Jan 2016, post scores and PM the winners.

------------------------------------------

Barring any unforeseen Lost Package replacement parcels, here is the current donation tally and breakout for prizes in the season ending vote. Two Packages have not yet been received.

Here is a list of all the cards up for grabs:

Good morrow St.Nic. I would dearly like to be a minion this year and receive (and give) much power to fellow minions. I have no regional requirements but I will add that my being in the UK makes it easier and cheaper for me to send to places like Australia and Japan than it is for the US i believe. That and I don't mind spending a little extra to get them there safe.

Contact Information in coming!!

My wishlist. Any of the below, altered in some awesome way. Borderless extensions being epicly appreciated ofc but any alter will be lovely (sharpie or otherwise :mrgreen: )

I missed last year due to real life, and greatly regret it. I hated missing it. So I am definitely in it again this year.

Edit:

Lord Bolas demanded in this requirements that we put up a want list.
So here goes:

I'm pretty much set on specific things. I play just about any deck archetype in commander, so I mostly just like interesting stuff.

I missed out on the whole of Origins and Khans block, so pretty much anything fun from there is a shoe in, and the Alara and Lorwyn blocks I missed out on as well.

Edit, the Sequel:

Been working on this for a while. Google Spreadsheet with my decklists.

Anything with an asterick has a proxy / goldborder card. Most playgroups are good with it.

Wishlist updated, Lord Bolas.

Greetings, lord Bolas.

I am most certainly in and will be sending a PM to you shortly.

Wishlist:

So, I'm in a bit of a rut at the moment. I only really get inspired to build new decks when I find a Commander I'm excited to build around, and of late I have been very short on inspiration.

So here's what I'm going to do. My request is that whomever sends to me sends me a Commander of their choice that doesn't already duplicate one of the colour combinations I already have, along with some bits and pieces to get me started, and I'll build that deck. Altered commanders are more than welcome and will substantially increase the likelihood of me actually building the deck in question!

Colour combinations I already have:

Mono-White
Mono-Red
Golgari (I picked up the C15 deck).
Bant
Esper
Jund
Sultai


Something two-coloured would therefore be ideal, although I'm probably picking up at least one new deck from C15 once we get spoilers.

Thanks for organizing Lord Bolas. PM sent. I humbly await your command.

I would like to receive any card card from my Mayael deck list, not already pimped out, with one or more of the following traits: altered, signed (by sender or artist), full art, non-English, or foil.
