PostSubject: quick guide to bots for newbs   Fri Aug 07, 2009 9:28 am

i noticed in clanchat some new players were asking about bots, since we have quite a few new players who also seem to be new to mtgo, i thought i'll spam some basic info about useful bots on mtgo.

notice i'm not affiliated or involved with any of them and this is just based on my personal experience, if i missed some vital info, please add to this thread
---->

*bots that give away free cards*

"MTGOTradersFreeBot" - Gives away 64 cards per account EACH MONTH (cheaper commons only, but they got quite alot, and not only bad ones)
". . . . . . guildpactbot" - 64 commons per account once
". . . . . . .0000000000S025" - 64 commons per account once
Millibot (strange username, search on classifieds) - gives away 0.05 free credit per account

*major bots of interest"

"cardbot" "cardbot1-5" "cardbuyingbot" "cardbuyingbot1-4" -> one of the oldest bots, they all share credit, always have a copy of everycard 4x, fair prices, stocked the day cards are released, will buy your cards for a good price. This bot has everything you want, except cheaper than normal prices.

basically there are loads of bots for the "normal" pricerange, but cardbot beats them all in availability and the fact that they also buy from you.

*cheaper then normal bots"

_Superbot1 + _Superbot2 -> these two share credit, most of the time they buy too, their prices normally are 10-25% less then at cardbot.
The_MTGO_Bazaar_1 + The_MTGO_Bazaar_2 -> they are also cheaper, share credit and buy, but superbot has a better collection

these 2 bots are cheap, but they dont have everything, especially the more expensive cards (so for commons you are at the right place, although they do not have everything)

*trading bots*

"Mr Creosot" -> Mr creasot trades 5 commons for 6 of yours. problem is he only takes the "better" cards usually. but if you have 0 tix and only commons for trade and need that few cards, creosot might be your bot.

*price search*

www.mtgolibrary.com lets you search on a card and find the cheapest bot

hope you will find this useful,
cheers

Thanks Mooncalf, this is bound to come in useful. Just FYI, there is another freebot that pays out once - i'll post the name here when I can look it up at home.

If you want I can add this information to the forum FAQ (accessible from the menu bar above).

Also, If you are really new, and need a bunch of filler cards, I got a ton of cards using the wow and amulet bots, and superbuyer8. They all share credits with the superbots, and you can get anywhere from 128 to 2 commons per ticket. I suggest making a wish list of everything you need (or all of pauper filter if you're rich Smile ) and starting at superbuyer8, and then working your way down the other common bots. Resave your wishlist after every trade (wish1, wish2...) so you don't have to go hunting for cards. Just load wishlist. Once the cards stop filling in, switch to the next lower bot in the chain.

You should be able to get about 85% of all commons this way. Just make sure to check on the confirmation screen that you won't end up with more than 4 cards, as the wishlist feature is not 100% perfect.

Since I spent my first three weeks on MTGO not being able to figure to buy single cards, I figure I should share something here. I found this review of the card sellers online. I hope it helps!
