    That's a good question.

    I suppose the foils are more rare, and could sell for more coins or trade for better cards than a normal one. But the sale/trade value is the choice of those within the trade anyway...

    Honestly, I don't know the point of the foil cards in game. :/ Sorry I couldn't help you.

    I believe Firehawk is right, actually. They're more for vanity than usefulness. As far as I can tell, there's no bonus or extra of any kind the foil cards give. I suppose the only advantage it may have is that it is piled separately from non-foil versions of the card, but I don't think that influences your deck in any way.
    Status: Quit FR since I never liked FR at all. Will probably not post anymore.

    They aren't better they are just decorative and because they are harder to find and have the reflecting light, people pay and charge more for them. They work just the same as the non-foil version of the card. It's like selling an item of clothing from the coin shop or selling that same item of clothing but in a color that is not available in the coin shop. It is exactly the same thing, one is just more flashy and more rare so the cost is higher.

    I have to agree with Poetic Raven on this one. Before I read her answer I was about to post "Because they are shiny!!"
