I'm going to boost this topic, given that it's fallen tragically off the front page.

Let me know if you have suggestions for collections or categories! I would especially love to find more "arthouse" collections, especially those with a message behind its selected works.

I´d say, this one https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... ction=8218 is a very nice and pretty one...

Since my flag is a tree, I might as well fit it by making a forest-themed collection:

A bit expensive, but it's aesthetically pleasing. I appreciate what nature offers

It's nice, but I can't include it unless I know what it's for. Is it just the collector's favorites? Is he trying to convey a message? If so, I would like to put in Arthouse - as soon as I have an explanation.

Very nice! Although you seem to be missing at least one.... ;)

To me it seems like a gallery of paintings...and, since the title (gallery) says so....

Good news. Samudera finally managed to get all the commended cards. Might wanna change this bit to match the new info.

It really is a pain to scroll through and pick cards for a collection, isn't it? We really need a few ways to sort the list - at least by ranks.
Are you planning on acquiring more commons that aren't ex-nations? I only found one in there with a real flag.

Yes!!! I just am slowly chugging though my lists I haven't hit the puppets I have in there and I will be expanding my buys to all commons not just ex nations and pups (Cuz I need more to spend money on :P)

Was trying to get yours. Finally managed to pull one!




Btw, here's some more decks you might note of:

https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... ballotonia

An in-progress list of every issue author in the game.

https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... n=samudera

A small, but complete repository of all nations condemned by the WA.

https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... rain_delay

A reference point as to who participates in card trading. Notably, you don't need to have a high deck value to be added; just be (at some point) active enough to be noticed by others in the card game.

With 9003's Common collection and Karen Matheson's UR collection, I have added a new category: Rank-Based Collections. At most, six collections will be allowed here, one for each rank. Anyone got a sizeable collection of Epics, Rares, or Uncommons laying about?

It's not really a collection but Guard Captain's deck has the most Unique epics I've seen so far.

If he's willing to make a collection with one of each, I might put it up (a simple but tedious task, since he has only epics). As it stands, I have no idea how much he has relative to Wop, who is currently listed as the epics record-holder.

I'm currently doing the "Projects" one and I would like to have a look at other car themed cards.

Alright its not technically over 500 but 494 is still definitely the largest anime collection. https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/collection=5780
If your set on the over 500 I'll have to wait for my legendaries to sell to upgrade my storage.

Bookends: First and Last Cards of Season 1.

It's a small collection, but it's unique as of now. Only two players can accomplish it, because there's only two copies left of the last card in Season 1.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness.

I have 1754 unique epics compared to his 1700, i'm still beating him :P I'll make a collection after farming.

Edit: Guard Captain is mine.
