I need a hand and some vets opinions here!
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:24:00 PM »
Hy folks! I want your opinion here! Could you guys tell what you think about this trade?

My questions are:

- It is a fair trade or not?

- If it is not, who is the one that would be most favored by this trade? Player 1 or Player 2?

The trade would envolve these cards:

Player 1 (all cards are normals)

2 Agent Coyle, mechborn (legendary)
1 Yagron (legendary)

1 Silfurstar (epic)
2 Nysrugh the Hungry (epic)
1 Subjugated Dragon (epic)
1 Syn, the Hope of Dawn (epic)

2 Grotesque Brute (rare)
2 Protector of the Dawn (rare)
1 Annihilate (rare)
2 Radariah, the Untouchable (rare)
3 Shirazius the Cruel (rare)
2 Unstable Bomb-bot (rare)
1 Aleta, Immortal Searcher (rare)
2 Crystal of Madness (rare)
1 Kali, Ascended (rare)
2 Zuza, Angelic Syren (rare)
1 Hehkeen, the Corrupted (rare)

1 Descent into Madness (uncommon)
3 Overcharged Bolt (uncommon)
2 Duelist (uncommon)
3 Pillage the Village (uncommon)
3 Kidnapped by Demons (uncommon)


Player 2

1 Foil No More Heroes (epic)
1 Foil Avarrach has Risen (epic)

1 Gold Logrithmatron (rare)

1 Gold Prayer of the Dragon (uncommon)
1 Gold Unstoppable (common)
1 Foil Shieldbearer (uncommon)
1 Foil Jade Witch (uncommon)

1 Foil Tribal Medicine (common)
1 Foil Hungry Devil (common)
1 Foil Support Drone (common)
1 Foil Diseased Brute (common)
1 Foil Dust to Dust (common)
1 Foil Ferocity (common)
1 Foil Honorable Farewell (common)
1 Foil Track (common)

So, what you guys think? I will give my opinion later too, but I want you people to do it first.

Thanks in advance!

My first instinct says that this trade is terribly unfair, and that it is Player One who is getting ripped off. Mechborn is a rather good legendary, and while Yagron isn't necessarily fantastic he is the best legendary for an Exiles player. While not every card in Player 1's offer is necessarily very good, it has a number of key cards for various decks, such as Hehkeem the Corrupted, Annihilate, or even Unstable Bomb-Bot. Even the Uncommons are decent cards, namely Kidnapped by Demons and Overcharged Bolt.

Player 2's offer, on the other hand, is mostly full of what I would consider chaff. The only redeeming element is that they are all some kind of premium, but foil is my least favorite kind of premium--and a number of them are simply terrible cards, like Honorable Farewell or Tribal Medicine. In my opinion the only card really of any value is the Gold Logarithmatron.

It's worth noting that trading is highly subjective and highly dependent upon context. If you're sitting on 5 soulbound Mechborns, you can afford to essentially give 2 of them away. And if you're really keen on collecting foils, even if they're never going to see play, then maybe you want the foils. But in my opinion Player 1 is offering a lot--not all of it is good, but some of it is very good--for very little.

Let's compare it, according to my opinion:
A. Player 1
1) 2 mechborn (though he's not much useful but still a middle tier legendary) worth as 3 foil epic and a rare cards
2) Yagron (almost a high tier legendary, but he's only useful in some unique decks) worth as 4-5 gold normal rare cards or 1-2 plat high tier rare card
3) Syn (he is an useful epic) worth as 2-3 foil or 2 gold normal rare card (may be a little bit more)
4) Sub dragon and Nysrugh (they are low tier epic cards) may worth as 2 foil rare
5) Sil (he's suck) worthless
6) Annihilate (it's a high tier rare card) can be trade with the rate of 1:2 as the same rarity
Player 2:
1) No more heroes and Avarrach has risen are low tier stuffs
2) The only valuable card here is gold logrithmatron, which worth as an epic
3) Those unc and common stuffs are only worth as a rare per card

So I think it's really unfair for the 1st player
The trade will become more balance if the 2nd player adds some plat top tier rare stuffs such as kali, paladin,...

Everything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it.
Worth of premiums are subjective, but foils are not valued much, at least compared to gold cards.
I wouldn't trade for those foils, but I don't collect them  :P

Player 1 definitely loses out in this trade. Although if it's somebody who really wants foils they may be willing to do it, I know of a few. As NTL said, it's all up to what each person will pay for something.
