They are most certainly from a hand cut sheet. The counterspell and incinerate were legends membership promos while disenchant and fireball were arena promos, so they would have been separated on wotc's end somewhere along the way and likely caught in quality control but most certainly not sent to t...

The biggest trap I've fallen into with EDH is wanting to add dual lands and fetches to support every deck. I've currently out-stripped my ability to do this, so I'm either adding a lot of new cards to my collection or changing how I do things. I'm now thinking that I might go to the model of only a...

if I had an Unlimited box or AQ box I'd certainly organize a draft with them. Why not? Its one of those things you do just to have fun doing it.

Be very careful with dark or main color (RGB) backgrounds. The color is just light enough that the font showes up well and the background does not overhelm the real subject, like the blue above. The reason a red. green or blue background was suggested was to make it possible to REMOVE the backgroun...

yep, A3 2009. I picked up 5 of them and hope to get about $12 ea out of them if I'm lucky. They're not exactly valuable any more. Maybe one day, but there are plenty available now.

well the best way I'd be able to think of would be to use something drastically different in color form what you're scanning. Maybe some hot pink background. It should make the magic wand tool easier to use as you can use it at a high tolerance and it shouldn't grab anything unwanted if the colors a...

Re: Promo cards? Nothing exciting...

The only way to tell would be to see what expansion symbols are on them and what tag is at the bottom of the card (which, of course would necessitate opening one). should be able to slide it down and get more info on the card. I'm curious if it was a reseller "promo" or something? Those 3 packs + p...

If you steam up some cloth and put the card on a hard surface you can potentially iron out wrinkles. Its hit or miss, and the card isn't the same after of course. Wouldn't try it on foils tho.
