Sounds like you just wanted things to stay the same. Actually I miss the old days too. But just because the old days are gone, doesn't mean it's all UD's fault. They have treated this hobby better than any other manufacturer.

If you want to blame someone, blame the collectors for buyin in to gimmicks. No card company can make money if the collectors aren't fueling their market reports.
So, we should blame you?
