Weekly Winners (26)
Due to time constraints a shorter version of the Weekly Winners this week. Due to popular demand I will be bringing back the loser(s) of the week (but that will be from next week onward). So, once again, I present you the cards that will be the talk of the town tonight.

Dramatic Entrance +389.9% ($4.49)
- Some interesting results were posted, containing a deck using
Dramatic Entrance. (Which were rumored to be fake)
- In the beginning of june

You can buy all copies of Aventurer's Guildhous and see the price of the card go up. But who is going to buy the card? Nobody. So the price will fall until supply meets demand.
But the sad thing is that there is a real demand for
