Card Values
« on: June 24, 2016, 06:27:36 PM »
Hello everyone,

I am still quite new to this game. I started my first Rift Run and stumbled across two cards that have shimmering rainbow colors across the artwork. These are NOT standard cards.

Can someone tell me what these might be? Ive heard there are like Foil cards and other unique types. I know one is Solitude Demon and the other might be Flashbang.

Would this (terrible) draft deck be worth buying for these two cards?

I know absolutely nothing about trade values.

Foils, not worth much in trade value. Don't buy the deck.

There are 4 different ways a card can be considered premium: Foil overlay, Gold Borders, Plat Borders (Preorder only), and Infinite Borders (competitive play only). Note that cards can be Goldfoil, Platfoil, and hypothetically InfiniteFoil.

While a premium card is certainly worth more than its vanilla version, it's highly dependent upon how good the card itself is--and its rarity. A Gold Lucca or Coyle, for instance, is worth much more than a Gold Stumble.

With that said, Demon of Solitude and Flashbang aren't the most-played of cards, so even in foil they're probably not very valuable. A draft deck is probably not worth buying off of those cards alone.
