Any reason why I couldn't get a used key and a new case with an uncut blade, get the blade cut and swap in the electronics from the old case and synch it up? Sounds like it would work to me, but perhaps other smart people could chime in!

You're not the 1st to try to outfox MB :D
Many threads on it but only MB can program it and 'marry' it to your car because of the 'electronics' in the keyfob and the ignition. Others will chime in.

hehe... ya well, I don't know if I'll be successful, but at this point I'd pay almost any amount of money to get a new key as long as not a penny of it goes to MB. it's irrational but it's how human brains work... if you think you're being ripped off then it's no longer a value judgment, it becomes 'the principle of the thing'. MB should wise up to how much bad press they get out of over pricing their keys!
