All trader / collector's issues regarding specific cards and other MeCCG products: is this one especially valuable? what's in this box?; is this a fair trade?

Thanks Ted  :)
Yeah, METW has been my main set, hasn't it?  I have tons of TW, TD, and LE,  but I'm very limited otherwise.  Wolfgang has generously offered to help get me cards I'm looking for during the next Lure, so eventually I'll expand more.  The card I'm currently working on is one of my favorites from Dark Minions.

This week's card is Dragon-sickness.

Somehow this rarely came up during my early bunch of cards, but I've having more difficulty lining up the pictures recently.  What I mean is, the borders on one copy will be slightly different from others, so they don't line up perfectly on top of each other.

Wacho messaged me a while back to say he was having that problem while he was working on Doors of Night and Gates of Morning; I hadn't had the problem at that point, but I seem to have it with most cards I do now.  With some cards, I cut one layer and then put it on top of other copies until I find enough copies that will perfectly line up, but if I don't have enough copies to do that, I end up cutting a sliver off of the border of some copies to get them to line up.  Once the cards are all glued together, it's barely noticeable.

Also, Wacho - if you ever finished Doors & Gates, I'd love to see!

Thanks Marcos!  (Did the cards ever show up?  At this point if they haven't I assume they're lost forever :( )

This week's card was made possible by GenCon:  Orcrist

In addition to being lots of fun, the GenCon sealed deck tournament used Limited starters so I was able to get Limited versions of a bunch of cards that I wanted to do but didn't have a black bordered version to do the top layer.
You can see that I left the chains "full" like I did on Call of Home, because I actually did this card at the same time as CoH.  If I did it today I'd probably try to open up the chains and see how it went.  I assumed that as I got better and better at this, each card would take less time.  Instead I find that the better I get, the more intricate details and new techniques I want to try so some cards take much longer than if I'd done them months ago (but of course they look better so it's worth it to me).

Whoops!  I forgot yesterday was Wednesday!

This week's card is Regiment of Black Crows:

I was very happy to find that I had enough copies of this card.  The non-unique allies are some of my favorite cards.  Actually, Heedless Revelry is a pretty great card on-guard against most of my hero decks, but very few of my minion decks.

Big bummer that the Minas Tirith cards are lost  :(  At least I still have pictures of them.

Thanks for the compliment, Ted!

Since I'll be traveling all day tomorrow, I decided to post a little early.  
This week's card is Washed and Refreshed:

I wanted to do a Thanksgiving-themed card in honor of the North American holiday, but I couldn't think of any; the picture on Washed and Refreshed was as close as I could get.  Wherever you are, here's hoping you have lots to be thankful for!
