I liked the game, and usually play with 7th and 8th edition, along with some others. Primarily I just search older packs for great cards. Invasion and the artifact one (Foundation, correct me if I'm wrong) have just made Magic too much about their editions alone.
However, I also deal in type-negation cards. You have lot of artifacts or something else? I've got cards that can blow it away.
If you have a lot of friends that are addicted but not really that smart, buy a really good card and trade. For a seven dollar Scion of Darkness I was able to get a ton of good cards to make up a deck with.
Otherwise, look for people quitting the game or switching deck types. I've been able to score free cards and mana for it.
The key is to get to know some people that play. Because of the vast amount of cards, there really isn't much in terms of actual buying you need. I met some people at a summer camp a few years ago that played it, and I took a base deck and soon had a whole feast of good cards.
I missed a grand chance with a friend who had a briefcase full of them, could have bought them all for fifty bucks and had a great deck and enough cards to trade for the rest of playing days with. But he sold them :'(.
No way, old cards never go out of style. Even look at the new timeshift set or whatever it's called... they're bringing back old cards with a vengeance, both in their original form (and original layout too! fuck the new layout!), and just slightly different.
