So a day and a half ago I put up a 'Birds of Paradise' on my have list and people seem to be coming out of the woodwork wanting to trade for it. Given that the card is in such high demand, and since most price guides say that it's worth a hell of a lot, is it considered bad form around here to ask for two or three other rare cards in exchange (or is the basic philosophy that one rare = one rare)?

If the card is in high demand and worth a lot more than other cards, it would rip you off to trade for just one card thats worth a lot less.

I'm a Yu-Gi-Oh! collector thinking about expanding into MTG. As a collector I will not let one of my cards go for anything less than what the fair trade value is for that card in the price guide. If it takes 4 or 5 cards to get my one card, then so be it. Or they can try to find one elsewhere. Stick to your guns and don't cheat yourself.

Birds of Paradise is a good card -*cough-staple-cough*

It usually sells for about 15-18 dollars places I usually see. Now let's compare it to another rare...(off the top of my head from ravnica)... Crown of Convergence. It sells for about 2 dollars, and it's not that good of a card, so a good Idea would be to ask for a card as good as it, such as glimpse the unthinkable (also from ravnica) or take a slew of not as good cards. If that's your first birds, then I'd keep it if I were you, but do as you wish, it's not my choice.
