I hate how these stupid companies sell sleeves in 50 packs (instead of 60), but I guess I'll finally shell out the $$$ for some with this drop :-/
This is the only way its worth it to buy 50 ct packs. You have to buy six packs to equal out to an even number of decks, and this way you get 10 decks worth.
Well, except you do realize that 60ct packs would be worse, right? Because you actually need 75 sleeves for a deck + sideboard.
50ct is actually a very good multiple:
1) For Limited, one pack allows you for 40 cards, and to pre-sleeve a few of your sideboard cards you know you are going to use.
2) For constructed, 3 packs allow you to build 2 constructed decks at 75 each. Or 2 packs give you the 60 you need, with some spares just in case one splits.
3) And for commander, 2 packs gives you exactly what you need :)
I totally agree with this. 50 is just about the perfect number for all but the relatively limited task of sleeving a single deck with no sideboard.
There are some times when I may prefer packs of 80, but buying 3 of these is only 10 sleeves away from 2 packs of 80. And thats just fine since I'm almost always looking to sleeve up more than one deck at a time.
I don't run any other game types nor do I play tournaments (So while I do keep a side board for most of my decks due to the old habit from playing tournaments years ago, I have no reason to keep them play-ready since I only use them to augment my deck in between casual games). For myself and similar players this is the best way to buy 50ct pack cards as they are more affordable and come in a multiple of 60.
