    I'm curious if there is a good site to buy cards. Me and my friends are looking to get in to some TCGs, including but not limited to the Pokemon TCG, but my friends want theme decks that we simply can't find locally in my smallish town.

    Are there any good sites out there to buy cards? And are not just Amazon?

    I suggest never buying TCG from ebay, I've gotten way too fake cards from that site.

    I suggest checking out these sites
    http://www.toywiz.com/
    http://www.amazon.com/
    I bought from both of them before with great results. My boyfriend and I bought from another site, but I don't remember it right now.

    I second the notion of Toywiz. I bought some cards from them way back when, and everything went smoothly.

    I do believe me saying "we simply can't find locally in my smallish town" says that neither such stores exist beyond LOCAL GAME STORE, and they're a small town version of Gamestop. There are no hobby stores and even fewer comic book stores.

    To everyone else, thanks for some actual suggestions. I'll look into those. Except Amazon. I wont look into that. Angry face.

    http://www.coolstuffinc.com/ Amazing site, I have bought many cards from here, and they always get to my house within 1-2 days regardless of shipping method (for me). I can definitely vouch for this site.

    Putting in another vouch for Troll and Toad; I don't really know how competitive their prices are anymore but they've always had what I'm looking for at good prices.

    At the moment, we're only looking for TCGs that are in English. Looking to find a game we all enjoy actually before we dump a TON of money into a game.

    http://tcgplayer.com/ is pretty good.

    starcitygames.com although I think they only do Magic, I buy all my cards from there pretty much.
