In December 1999 Wizards of the Coast published a magazine named TopDeck. It was dedicated to trading card games, while other Wizards of the Coast magazines covered other parts of their product line. However, due to the increasing popularity of the internet and its inherent advantages,TopDeck ceased production in February 2001 with issue #15.
Issue #14 features a Starter 2000 Sampler pack which includes nine standard Sixth Edition cards and one white-bordered Spined Wurm without expansion symbol and ©1993-2000 copyright line.
