Hey Kistaro
Congratulations on your good luck at the pre-release! You got those, and Richard got a foil Platinum Angel and a Chrome Mox! Not fair! I really missed out, it seems. I wish I could have gone, but oh well. I just completed my green and white deck, which needs some work still. I would like to play it against you sometime though. I was wondering: do you still want Clockwork Dragon? I would trade it for a bringer (although I totally understand if you want to keep them...). I got the Furnace Whelp, and the Suncrusher. Suncrusher can be an effective sunburst card. I hope to hear from you soon; preferrably by phone, and I hope to see you again soon.

In two polite words, "absolutely not." In three less polite words, "fuck no dumbass." Clockwork Dragon is- according to several trade sites and several people with larger collections and more skills than either you or I- about a two-dollar card, and about three by Blackboarder (which does have higher-than-really-average prices). I suspect that the Bringer's opening bid will be higher than that.

For that matter, Decree of Justice (which I held on to for you instead of trading it yesterday like I could have) is also not a fair across-the-board trade; it's also rather valuable.

I am still interested in the Clockwork Dragon, but I'm not doing one of those trades for it. Both Bringers, along with their new friend Bosh, have already been woven into my five-color deck, which is now a rather efficient slapinator.

It's too bad Richard dropped- he missed a lot of fun. On the other hand, I do understand an aversion to simply cataloguing two cards with cumulative value of $60.00 and then giving them to someone else. You can believe I tracked down and profusely thanked Justin Ulrich for surrendering his pair of Bringers...

No problem, Kistaro, I imagine the bringers won't be that hard to track down for the Fifth Dawn Set I currently plan on putting together. I do think the black and maybe the blue ones will be of some value, but the other three probably won't be at the top of the set. Be that as it may, I have a cool card that will help any sunburst card or any bringer card called Crystal Quarry.

Crystal Quarry
T: 1 colorless mana
5, T: Add WUBRG to your mana pool.
How tragic that greed eclipses beauty?

Damn, that card goes well with Fifth Dawn!!!

P.S. I tried to call you back, but as you properly warned, You were not available. Oh well.
