It’s an enlightening canter through the motivations and mindset of someone who classifies themselves as a really big fan. The full post is worth reading. Here is a flavour:

Would you recommend doing this to others who have the means to do so? Was it worth it?

Life is short. If you have the disposable income, I would highly suggest at least spending $500 to have the majority of competitive cards. Like I said earlier, the game becomes so much more fun when you are able to play any deck. Now going for all golds is purely cosmetic, but I just love those graphics.
