Dear Magic Online fan,
MTGO Academy operates a series of bots (automated card stores) within the Magic Online client so that you may purchase or sell cards at any time during the day!
Four bots will buy your spare or unused cards and boosters for event tickets; their account names are Academy_Buybot, Academy_Buybot2, Academy_Buybot3 and Academy_Buybot4.
Three bots sell cards, boosters, and more from every Magic Online expansion; their account names are Academy_Sellbot, Academy_Sellbot2, Academy_Sellbot3.
We also have several specialty bots that stock only particular items for your purchasing. They include two bots that stock exclusively Standard-legal cards and packs (Academy_Standardbot and Academy_Standardbot2), a bot that sells only foil cards (Academy_Foilbot) and a bot that only sells items priced under 1 event ticket (Academy_Budgetbot)! Check them out in the Classifieds section of the Magic Online marketplace, or add them to your buddy list.
(Note: Searching “Academy_” or “MTGOACADEMY” in the Classifieds, without quotation marks, will display all of our bots in order to speed up your shopping experience!)
Using MTGO Academy’s Buybots to sell your cards for event tickets is easier than opening a booster pack of Magic! There are simple and intuitive commands to tell our buybots which cards you would like to sell and which cards you want to keep: Just type the number corresponding to the item that you don’t want to sell, and our buybot will remove all those items from its cart. (Or type the number followed by a “-” (hyphen) to have the buybot remove only one of those items from the cart.) If you want clarification on this process while trading with one of our bots, you can type “help” and the bot’s updated help menu will share a list of the available commands and describe what they do.
Also included is an extra functionality, called cart refill, to make it easier if you would like to sell a large quantity of cards or other items for event tickets all at once. If, after having one of our buybots remove items from its cart, you would like to sell the buybot different items in the same transaction, just type “refill” and the bot will offer to buy different items from you. This should make every transaction with our bots quick and easy for you.
