It's become apparent very quickly that checking the values of your cards is important when trading. Not only do you want to ensure a fair deal for both parties but it's also useful for understanding the metagame. What can be confusing though is when different sites give contradicting values, it can be particularly hard when dealing with different currency. What are the usual online price checks that people consider reliable? Is there an aggregate website that gives accurate averages ala meta-critic?

Here are a few pricing sites I come across so far:

MtgFanatic (US)
Black Border (US)
CCG Emporium (AUS)
Find Magic Cards (US)

Any others? What are the best?

A lot of people seem to use

http://www.starcitygames.com/
or
http://magic.tcgplayer.com/

There used to be a monthly magazine called Scryre that had prices in it. I wonder what happened to it. I'm talking 10 years ago.

But I'm in the same boat as you- I'd like to know where prices are listed that *everyone* uses.

There's a few places I go for this:

http://www.starcitygames.com/ - which definitely seems to be the most widely used one.
http://www.coolstuffinc.com/
http://strategy.channelfireball.com/ - excellent site for general gameplay articles and video as well.

However, today I did some hunting around on the itunes app store, and just downloaded 2 new MTG iPhone apps.
Both of them appear to be usefull, but one is clearly MUCH better than the other. They're a little over a dollar each to download.

MTG Merchant - this one is OK.
MTG prices - This app is excellent. It basically draws all of its data from what value sales are going up on E-bay. Not only does it give you a price, but it also shows the average, the high, the low, and the standard deviation in price. Very handy.

Having an iPhone/internet enabled phone these days certainly makes trading a LOT easier. Simply look up the prices as you're making the decision and you should pretty much always get a reasonably fair trade.

I found this site very handy, it pulls data from various price guides and presents it in a 'no-frills' site.

Good if your using a mobile phone browser to check prices mid-trade.
