I assume LGS means local game store. I tried forcing myself out to go to one and it was inhabited by young succubi and middle-aged parents and loud ethnics. One or two people "looked" wizardly but it turned out they had kids and wives. No one wanted me there, they all instinctively knew I shouldn't be there, as did I. Suppose it varies by location of course, as this was only my experience in my local game store. But it's not an option for me and online sucks. I just play against myself sometimes and am starting to just stare at the cards and pretend I'm playing.>>49447
I was thinking of a way to get around this and it would be to print each card using a public library. You can probably fit about 8-12 cards per sheet of paper and with colored ink at $0.30 at my library, you could print between 10,664 - 15,996 cards with a $400 budget. I haven't tested how many fit on a standard sheet of paper yet. If you want a back to the card, you would cut the amount in half, so at least 5,322 double-sided cards. If you wanted to laminate them, which is necessary for long term use, it would cut how many you could make for $400. Lastly, you wouldn't do this with lands, obviously, since they aren't worth the printing money. For those, I would just cut out rectangles and draw the land symbols and any details below if it has extra effects. It would be a lot of work and time but it would be cheap. And yeah, you won't be able to play in a tournament but those are for normalfaggots anyway.
