I vote that your alters are great (esp Norritt), does anybody else's vote matter?

Spiders
I collect spider cards and would like to get ones I don't have.
These are the ones I don't have:
Ancient Spider, Arachnoid, Arachnus Spinner, Goliath Spider, Graverobber Spider, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Nyx Weaver, Rib Cage Spider, Silklash Spider, Swift Spinner, Watcher in the web

Others I would like:
Alpha/Beta non alter Giant Spider
Spider tokens
Any altered spiders.

Obviously I would be happy with anything.

You'd just change the result of the vote to match your schemes, great lord.

Marking tentative interest. Don't have my job back yet, but if the time comes and I do have it back, I'm definitely in.

I'm highlighting your response, but don't think I'm saying this specifically at you. I just want to get this out there for anyone coming here and worrying about costs or finding something really special--like promos or alters...

Grixmas isn't about price. Don't feel compelled to spend a full paycheck getting that perfect card. There's been years known for gifts of Storm Crows.

Concur... Here are some examples of the Season's more memorable gifts:

Sharpies and/or holiday stickers can make great gifts with a bit of ingenuity.

Such fun last year! I was lucky enough to be paired with a great person, and the person who got my stuff lied well enough to make me think they enjoyed it!

IN!

EDIT for demands:

I am making a Mono-Red dragon tribal so any funny or Grixmas themed for that, plus I like mana rocks with on-theme stuff on it.

Also have a Talrand deck, so altered or weird drake tokens would be cool.

EDIT #2: Decks I currently run: Kaseto (Voltron), Talrand, Jenara (+1/+1 counters), Zirilan, R/G Omnath, Karador

I have no idea what you mean. :mrgreen:

Also, I suppose I should say I'll be in again this year.

I'll get the email off and a requests list up sometime later when its not 1am and I'm running a 2HG pre-release event. :roll:

DAMN YOU SEGRUS!!!

I *just* sent off 90 Storm Crows to an..., er, witting stooge, and then 108 more show up at my door??

AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!

You know what this means? Now I have to team up with the guy I sent my crows to, so we can send a double-dose to some poor schmuck next year.

WHY couldn't you have sent them to get here last week? GGGRRRRR...

The other cards you sent *almost* make up for it. Almost. The Stormbreath Dragon, Culling Scales, and Dragon Breath alters are pretty awesome, thanks!

When I get time I'll try to scan them and see if I can post them here - but is there a way to do so just using my hard drive to upload them, or do I have to use an outside service like Facebook etc.? Because I don't belong to any such sites, and don't wish to. I guess I could scan them then send the files to someone else to post them, if they are willing. Anyway, great work and especially the small details on the Culling Scales! And thanks for the foil Bower Passage, I just retooled my Karrthus deck to rely more on general kills and that is a great fit!

But the Storm Crows...DAMN YOU!! :::shakes fist:::

I certainly haven't been saving up Storm Crows...nope, I definitely wouldn't be doing something like that...

:wink:

Hmm, I just have to think about what I want, because of course I'm back in!

Edit: My wishlist!

Anyone of my current commanders (Nath, Sharuum, Karrthus) in foil.

Enlightened Tutor
Demonic Tutor
Hellfire
Any rare lands
Any cards from the reserved list, no matter how good or terrible.

Damn, so long on these forums, no Grixmas participation yet... WELL THAT'S ABOUT TO CHANGE, I SAY!!

Hmm, what should I wish for, though?

Any alters. Especially Borderlands/Final Fantasy themed. If someone could alter a Desert to a Journey theme, that would be extra sweet.
Any Un-set cards.
Any non-english, non-german foils.
Anything signed.
That said, I'd love to get a foil Gegenzauber for my friend.
Foil Queen Marchesa to helm my newest creation.
Gravity Sphere for my Fumiko. Nothing shall fly above these Walls!
An Arabian Nights Desert and Oasis.
Non-altered Alpha/Beta Shivan Dragon and/or Nightmare.
Proxies of old duals made with the MTGO Cube art and Unglued/Zendikar 1 frame with two mana symbols on the bottom.

It's long list, but I'll really be happy for anything. Plus, I've been super evil this year, my master! :twisted:

First week of registration and there are almost as many that have submitted their info as there are slackers that claim interest but haven't sent a PM yet....

8 people and counting.

Edit: 9 now, one took the hint....

:wink:

Actually, let me revise this. I need stuff that draws power from enchantments and lifegain. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is still on my want list, even if she is impractical to obtain. I've already got a few defensive enchantments, but I need ways of protecting them. Past that, anything you think can improve my ARTIES AND "OOMIES deck would also be of massive help.

Also, Segrus, I just noticed that the three cards I ordered for you last year were all Green.
