Default Foreign Cards

What kinds of Foreign cards do you like? How much are you willing to pay for them? Do you prefer German, Italian, Spanish, French, American? Are there specific cards you look for in specific languages?

I'd barely even consider paying half price for the foreign cards. The only one I use is a super Spanish Call Of The Haunted, because it's shiny.

I try to get certain key cards in my deck in Spanish (my native language), just for kicks. I like collecting the Spanish cards while others just toss them my way because of their lower value. I would have an entire deck in Spanish if I could, but it's tough.

As for specific foreign cards I'm looking for, I'm trying to get Spanish Gadgets for my deck, as well as a Spanish and Italian copy of Coelacanth. One for each language I speak...it's kinda fun to see that.

I think having certain cards in Spanish is funny because I know if a translation is off. Like United We Stand as "Estamos Unidos" is hilarious even if it is the most literal translation.

I like German cards, especially my German Spore. The card's name is in English, but its effects and edition (first) are in German. People pick up the card to read it, only to give "wtf" look when that fails

I like foreign cards a lot. Mainly because they're not distributed anywhere in the United States. They're rarer and worth more, plus they're great to show off, so when I get the chance I always like to nab a few. Sadly everyone on here values foreign stuff higher, so it's not always the easiest to come to an agreement.

Same here because I haven't, in a LONG TIME, been given any sort of worthwhile incentive to play the TCG by itself.

I also like German and French because they are interesting.

I love Japanese cards. I admire their texture and lack of censorship. However, they are not legal, unfortuantely. If only Konami would have a law that OCG cards could be used in TCG decks after it has existed in the TCG for a certain amount of time. That way, it won't affect sales but one can still use a Japanese Venominaga, or Harpy Lady, etc.

that, actually is not true. it only needs a face. Several People were killed in Deathnote because their face was seen, but a false name was given.

any way, any card with a name that looks the same in english as another language is pro choice

If it were in sanctioned tournaments, correct. Outside those events though, you are free to play them. Like a Judge would stop me from playtesting Grannel in late night while I watch Maria Ozawa in a drama show.

That would be nice though.
