  1. Tried to pick up some Restore Balance foils on Travis Allen’s rec but can’t seem to find them anywhere. None on TCGplayer, Starcity, CFB, ABU, Cardkingdom, or ANYWHERE!!! Do these just not exist anymore?

    1. With 2000+ listeners every week, cards we call out that get attention on camera tend to dry up. This card has also been written up by a few pros lately, so no surprise that supply has dwindled. Good luck in your hunt!

      1. Thanks, I’ll need it! I don’t have a magic store within 100 miles of my house, so it’s online or nothing!
