Mana Leak in Portuguese is Perda de Poder.
LOL – standing corrected and will shut up. (The card we're talking about is Power Leak, though, not Mana Leak)

Fuga di Energia is Italian.
Could also be a typo introduced by the poster, instead of Fuga de Energia.

Re: ELD = a new Alt 4th?

Thx for chiming in! Always good to have an expert weigh in ;-). To see the cardstock, you'd need to look at the thin edge of the card where it's cut after the coating is applied. This is what my rough classification 1–3 was partially based upon. When the cards are stacked, you can separate #3 from ...

Re: ELD = a new Alt 4th?

Okay, folks, here are some rough-&-ready pictures I snapped w/ my cell under black light. You will see all three variations I noticed w/ ELD card stock: 1. Bright and fluorescent card stock, what we've seen for 20+ years; UV light: black borders on both sides appear golden and the foiled version loo...

We can leave this to Mark to sort out :-D

I was just curious, and still am sort of, whether I missed something about new card stock or new surface finish/coating. I still hope someone more knowledgeable than me decides to chime in …

Which country were the fat packs and the booster boxes made in?
According to box and wrappers everything was made in the US. Only some prerelease boosters I got were made in Japan.

ELD = a new Alt 4th?

Hi Folks: Sorting away ELD cards I noticed a color variance among stacks and indeed, cards are different under UV light: cards whose card stock shines bright and white under UV light as usual and cards that do not, just dull colors. Moreover, the black edges around the card turns golden under UV lig...
