It is something that I look forward to each year.

Cutting it close to the wire, but I'm in!

I'd like any loose copies of Second Sunrise (I can never have enough copies for EDH), Brought Back, and Conch Horn my assailant may have. I'm currently brewing Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale, and am always tinkering on my Ephara, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Kefnet the Mindful and Prime Speaker Zegana decks. Some good friends are brewing Yuriko, The Tiger's Shadow, and Volrath, the Shapestealer- any regiftables for them are also apprec... quite threatening to my wellbeing ;)

Hopefully, I'll be able to top the 5 altered rings with this year's victim.

Okay, I'm in. I'll have to ponder selfish thoughts to come up with a wish list.

Edit:

Honestly anything you send me is probably fine (probably not a box of storm crows, but otherwise...). Foils for Kaervek the Merciless would be cool (the only ones I have currently are a promo Malfegor, Rolling Earthquake, and a few foil basics), but I'm not expecting anyone to break the bank.

1 Kagemaro, First to Suffer

1 Vandalblast
1 Toil // Trouble
1 Terminate
1 Snuff Out
1 Scrap Mastery
1 Rolling Earthquake
1 Reverberate
1 Reiterate
1 Reforge the Soul
1 Red Elemental Blast
1 Recoup
1 Read the Bones
1 Rakdos Charm
1 Pyroblast
1 Promise of Power
1 Molten Psyche
1 Molten Disaster
1 Fault Line
1 Earthquake
1 Dreadbore
1 Wayfarer's Bauble
1 Thran Dynamo
1 Teferi's Puzzle Box
1 Surveyor's Scope
1 Sol Ring

I'm in too. I'll have a list and the PM sent by the end if Wednesday. Things have been crazy.

As for demands, I'm fleshing out the new Greven, but I'm kinda stuck on creatures to add to it. I really don't want to go through all the creatures that exist, and I'm trying to not use edhrec suggestions, so I'm a bit stuck. Commander staples are always welcome too. I always seem to be running out

I'll be joining again this year.

Here are some ideas for what I might enjoy receiving for the exchange:

Any Grixmas themed alters would be cool. If you want to try something more ambitious, I have a bad habit of making tribal decks where the general doesn't match the tribe... so if you could alter any of these generals to go with the tribe, that would be really cool.
Nin, the Pain Artist - Elemental tribal
Sygg, River Cutthroat - Ninja tribal (got some rogues too, but ninjas are cooler)
Zur the Enchanter - Zombie tribal

I am looking for cards for a Sylvia Brightspear & Khorvath Brightflame blink dragons deck.
Decklist: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=19279

I want all the Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation Deserts that you are willing/able to throw at me, especially the uncommon ones.

I like the “Storybook” masterpiece versions of the adventure cards. The cards (with the ugly non-masterpiece version) I am currently running in decks are Beanstalk Giant, Giant Killer, and Murderous Rider, but I like most of them enough to fit them into a deck somewhere.

Some specific cards I am looking for at the moment:
Cavalier of Flame
Field of the Dead
Finale of Eternity
Gargos, Vicious Watcher
Narset’s Reversal
Shimmer Dragon
Steelbane Hydra
Sword of Sinew and Steel
The Great Henge
Tome of Legends
Voracious Hydra

Not really keen on foils, so don't go out of your way there.

Hopefully that is enough to pick from. Merry Grixmas.

Four people still have not updated their demands. Pairing PMs will start going out this evening (but I am still waiting on a couple people to check their messages and respond)

Insufficient groveling. Your tormentor will surely see you suffer for this insolence.

Sorry for the delay on getting my demands updated, it's a pretty low quality quick and dirty thing, but week has been hectic, cherry topped with an unplanned family illness. Though I'll be happy with anything sent (I still use my sharpied Snow Globe crystal ball.).
