Liliana Market is a marketplace (under construction!) where individual players and game stores can sell and buy magic cards. In this post I’d like to explain our views as MTG players, as we’ve observed different situations where we believe Liliana Market can help the community.
- You accumulate way too many cards. Inevitably, by attending to FNM and other events on a regular basis, you accumulate hundreds (if not thousands) of cards. The vast majority of them don’t really have any value to you, since you won’t play them. However, other players would use them in their decks, and here is where trading comes into play.
- But trading cards it’s not that easy. First, you might be interested in a card someone’s got, but they might not be interested in any of the cards you have, or vice versa. This sucks, especially for new players. Second, trading takes time and effort, and often you just end up buying the cards instead, as you need them as soon as possible to build your new deck. And when you buy them, you wished they weren’t that expensive.
- At least you’d like to cover expenses to a degree. MTG is not cheap. You need to keep investing in cards to tweak your decks. Even more, you might be travelling to PTQs and Grand Prix events, perhaps outside the UK. Again, wouldn’t it be great to be able to sell some of the cards that you don’t use and offset some of these costs?
As oppose to eBay, Liliana Market has been specifically designed to sell and buy MTG cards. As a seller, you can upload your entire collection if you wanted, and get some cash from all those amazing cards that you will never play. As a buyer, you can securely acquire cards from other players just like you, potentially for a more affordable price.
Initially, we’re working to have the best possible inventory for Standard. We’d like to be expanding to Modern and other formats as quickly as we can, but let’s go step by step. This will be a major task and we’re going to need your help to make it happen: Liliana Market is a tool made by and for the MTG community.
