Frequently asked questions

In most cases, you are probably referring to the Normal variant of a card that happens to be holographic. Some rarities, such as Rare Holo, are always holographic by default.

If there are variants with a different holographic pattern than the Normal or Reverse Holo variants, they will be listed by their holographic pattern, e.g., Cosmos Holo, Cracked Ice Holo or Water Web Holo.

For reference, a detailed explanation of all card variants can be found here. If you still think a card variant is missing, please report it to us. Thanks!

The Japanese TCG does not have the same structure as the international TCG. Therefore it's listed separately on the expansions page and cards page.

Currently most Japanese cards only have the Normal variant. We are looking for reliable sources to add other variants like 1st Edition and Reverse Holo. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have knowledge to share. Thanks!

It's based on the card variant price multiplied by the quantity in your collection. If no price is available for a variant, the variant with the lowest price of the same card is used. Card languages and conditions have no effect on the price calculation.

We do our best to include pricing information for all cards and variants, but unfortunately there will always be cards or variants that do not have pricing information. If we don't have the data, it will simply be left out.

How are the prices in the cards overview calculated?

They're calculated by taking the lowest price across all variants of a card. Card languages and conditions are not included in the pricing information.

The basic plan will cost around $2-3 a month and the premium plan around $5. Both will be billed annually.

If you downgrade to the free or basic plan, you'll keep all collection data from your previous plan. You might no longer be able to add new cards to your collection because of certain plan-specific limits though. If you upgrade your subscription plan again, you'll be able to continue where your previously left off.
