Rampant Growth and Blightning. Also supposedly a new 'box-topper' sized card.

No idea on the first part of your question but I'll bet you can figure out the answer to the second part all by yourself.

Well it's possible it's a retailer? This stuff is out in stores now?...otherwise it's getting stolen obviously...

These are player rewards cards. I've never personally seen these kinds of promos go out to retailers.

Hi Worth.
Due to a mix-up by WotC, they sent me a textless Blightning card early. This is a real textless Blightning card, and they won't be mailing these out for another month. Get yours now!

I didn't think so, however, I have not received this MPR mailing yet. I also have doubts that I will at all, as I received an MPR mailing not too long ago.

The Conflux Oversized Feral Hydra was not wrapped, if I remember correctly.

Maybe the person on MTGsalvation who said it was oversized was incorrect?

Well, it is a person with a 97.1% feedback rating on a system that makes it hard to not have 100%. Reading his feedback would autoeliminate him from most rational buyers.

I wonder if it would help to report this guy to Wizards.

I just read through his feedback and he sells a TON of DCI Promos--multiple 4x auctions of Gateway promos (Thrinax/Thoctar), multiple 4x auctions of Pre-Release cards (Malfegor), as well as a ton of MPR cards. Aside from the MPR cards, it sounds like a rogue tournament organizer receiving promos from Wizards and selling them on ebay rather than using them for their stated purpose.

If I were Wizards I'd also be concerned with where he got so many textless MPR promos. I play religiously in 1-2 sanctioned tournaments a week and I don't get nearly that many MPR cards in the mail!

That will only raise someone to life if several of us report it. I went to the forum and could not find a place that I could really talk to Wizards so I put it in the thread on rippers.

I'd like to suggest you and others approach it in different directions. I think Customer Service would be a good one. The other one I have thought of is to send a message to Hasbro.

Please let us know which path you took so others can take different ones.
