(I have no idea where this should go, or if this is even allowed on the forum; I have been told it's probably okay from a few people though. I'll take this down if it conflicts with the rules in any way.)

This is a thread for a way to "trade" in Elements. If you want that one rare that always slips out of your hands[1], then you've come to the right place. Also a great way to collapse the already ruined economy.

Spoiler for How This Works:
If you're interested, just reply with your application (template below) with your forum name, IGN, timezone, what cards you have and what cards you are looking for. If someone has the aforementioned cards, try to set up a time to begin trading.

The actual trading method isn't anything new, all you have to do is enter PVP 1 or 2 with a deck containing the cards being traded and play until the cards are obtained. Decks can be functional or built specifically for trading (24 pillars, 6 copies of rare), depending on if the person is looking for their session to be fun.

Ex. Alice can never get Eternities when Arena farming, and already has a full set of Pulverizers. Bob, on the other hand, is in need of Pulvys and has six copies of Eternities. They both agree to meet up at X:XX Xm and use fully functioning decks in their session. After a couple of matches and spins, Alice gets the Eternities she needs while Bob is able to get enough Pulvys to satisfy him.

IGN: (IGN goes here)
Timezone: (Timezone goes here)

Cards Wanted: (List of cards you're looking for goes here)
Deck Preference: (Functional or Nonfunctional?)

Spoiler for Rules:
More TBA, depending on if this sets sail.
  • Both players must have the cards the other player wants in their deck, unless nonfunctional decks are being used. No scams please.
  • If you have enough copies of a rare that you were previously looking for, please say so in the thread. The same goes for if you want to trade for a different type of card.
  • Please respect your trading partner's deck preference.

 1. Allowing trade with unobtainable cards (or trading in general) might be discussed later on, but right now it's generally frowned upon and possibly a bannable offense.

I remember way back in the day, this was frowned upon to a significant degree. I'm not sure how much attitudes have changed, given how the game is currently broken from arena.

That's mainly the reason why I wasn't sure whether or not to post it.

Its still against the spirit of the game.

If you have 5 pharaoh and still need a 6th I dont mind, but if you trade everything is there still a collectible card game?
You aren't really trading, you generate extra copies, which is different.

Especially trading holy cow seems weird as it isn't something you can just get in arena. It is still an unobtainable and you can't get use it in tournaments.
I think putting up a holy cow farm just for trading is kinda lame. There is no reason it should be up for trade.
A lot of people have farmed the cows for many days just to get a single copy ... or none at all. I dont think its fair to trade it for any number of rares you can just get in arena.

Fair point.

My main reason to create this thread was to give people a faster way to obtain one specific type of rare, and coming up with the unobtainable card idea was more of an attempt to try and add appeal to people who already have 6 copies of unupped & upped rares.

I figured that the idea itself would be pretty controversial since, as you mentioned, this method of farming is just inflation with cards instead of money. What I'm unsure of is if it's worth the risk to keep this thread up, let alone post it in the first place.

EDIT: The bit about unobtainable cards is now a footnote, warning about the controversy of both it and the process in general.

if u sell for mistake or u need for example, 1 copy of an unupped stiletto because u can't get it because rng sucks i don't think is a problem to simply ask in chat

getting rares is already ridiculously easy, fast and u don't even need a farm deck
