5 Foil Mythics

    Quote from Mashayous
    Please be real.. I want a peek at the new guild mechanics Grin Looks like the Gruul and Boros mechanics are gonna get a very early spoil if this is real.

    Not to say Gatecrash could be different, but RTR guild leaders had nothing even close to their guild's mechanics on them.

    Some random dragon that is probably awful... This could be real.

    Even if this gives us some early spoils, keep in mind that the guild leaders usually don't have their guild's mechanic. The two mono colored cards might have a guild mechanic however...

    Trostani does, and Rakdos has his guild's original mechanic. So there's a chance.

    Here's to hoping! Either way, early spoils are very good.

    I personally prefer 75 islands. There is nothing than the look on your opponents face once they start trying to play around your counter magic and you know you're sitting on a deck full of islands and nothing else.

    It also allows you to board in 15 cards and completely mess with their head between the boarded games.

    And a boring name to boot. Don't throw these out yet.

    Quote from KitsuneWarlock
    One guy would not risk his career and the legal implications of what he was doing to do this. On the career side, this would cost the manufacturer their contract and the individual his job. On the legal side, you better believe you can't take copyrighted materials from a client you've signed an NDA with and pocket them home.

    Heck, Wizards has fired employees for such misconduct with the (limited) printing capabilities they (had?). Upperdeck lost the rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! over something similar too...


    You must be under the misapprehension that the guy selling these is a responsible mid-level employee with a vested interest in the company rather than a low-level stockman or menial who signed a whole bunch of paperwork when he got the job because someone told him to.

    It can be as illegal or stupid as you like, but I'm pretty sure that has never stopped humanity from trying it anyway.

    I'd urge everyone to let the OP handle contact with this person. I don't think the seller would appreciate getting 67 phone calls in the middle of the night and I doubt that would increase our chances of getting scans.

    TBH now that the OP has published this on a public forum, the guy is going to get inundated with people wanting to buy them and flog them on ebay.

    Oh, and WotC are probably about to send around the guy's in suits to retrieve their property.

    Edit: And using the power the internet it seems to be incredibly easy to find out who the seller is - I'm not about to shell out myself but for 10 bucks a number of services will get you a name and address. I feel slightly sorry for the poor sap.

    All of New Phyrexia was spoiled by a pro with an NDA if you recall.

    I'm usually pretty skeptical, but this seems like it just might be legit. Hopefully we'll have some concrete knowledge either way when I awaken tomorrow afternoon.

    I'm surprised this listing has been up since the 12th. Surprising to me it took this long for someone to find this and that wotc didn't find it and shut this guy down. The names all sound pretty legitimate as well. Man it'd be sweet if we got pictures. It's going to suck for the guy when he gets megafired but do you really think pbm will lose their contract over this? I mean how many facilities are there that can manufacture magic cards and how hard would it be to transfer production?

    Attaching the images from the craigslist ad. If this goes against some rule that I can't recall, then you can just look up the ad via the info given within the OP.

    That being said, how hard is it to fake a foil card?

    According to some in the card altering threads not hard, but after scanning these cards why would anyone make such bad fakes? Rade is the only one that seems relatively playable at the moment

    Goodness now. Amazing works! Shame the men in black are on their way.

    Edit: Although close look maybe not so amazing work. Something is really wrong with Borborygmos. Frown

    On the plus side, if these do turn out to be the real deal we have our large dragon and ridiculously costed johnny blue card out of the way

    That's a Timmy blue card, not a Johnny one.
