    Hi nico,

    Seeing that you also wrote some strategy threads (I'll go through them later again, because some sound familiar ) do you, or possibly someone else, already wrote a comprehensible guide on what to do with 'leftover' packs (Set 1, Set 2)?

    I've wondered many times, what to do with my packs. Up untill now I've sold some Set 1 packs during peek prices on the auction house to feed my Set 3 draft and gauntlet appetite as well as buying some staples of the AH for arena farming decks. I've also opened some packs to extend my (far from complete) collection, but always felt like this was bleeding me money (no money rares hit so far, and on average I feel like I'm having a loss). Some part of me says keep them, but then the other part of me says that I might lose alot of value once these sets rotate out.

    Anyway, sorry if I went a bit offtopic with this. If people can point me to said article or thread, that would be great!

    PS: I really like your contribution to the strategy and decklists forum, you are a deckbuilding master! I love the efficient (e.g. mono ruby orcs) and fun (e.g. mono wild) arena farming decks you put together and enjoy playing them alot!

    Thanks guys. I have fun doing this, and I just wanted an easy way to refer back and update. I often purge my decklists from the client to remove the annoying locks on cards when trying to post a few AH cards.

    To your question about S1 and S2 pack strategy.. If there is one thing I will never have influence on, and largely understand, it's the economy in the game. Economics is something I've always struggled with - I understand principles, but envy those that can make accurate predictions. My guess is that the release of gauntlet format is going to heavily influence HXE to add old limited formats into rotation, because the rate at which a limited set can now stale is quite a lot faster. This is unfortunate for HXE, as content will be blown through faster by the hardcore grinders, and the value of new cards will also decline faster.

    What does that mean in-terms of your old packs? Hold onto them! You should get to play with them soon in limited modes. The guide I made almost 2 years ago now: Spending Money in Hex, I try to go back in and update on occasion, I think there is a blurb or two about old packs? With some set 1 and set 2 cards hitting really high prices again, sometimes it's not insane to just crack a few packs hoping to get lucky, and flipping them on the AH, but you need a lot of time and data to support you doing that efficiently.

    I would sell them (and have sold them; I have zero S1/S2 remaining). I would also buy singles (I've built full sets of S1/S2 so far).

    Definitely consider Yoss' advice. He is exceptionally good at utilizing the AH, and data provided by HEX and other sites utilizing AH data. I'm definitely small potatoes when it comes to marketplace questions.
