Of course neither of these sites have a complete set in stock, so perhaps it's worth more than that.

I don't like this idea. I think they should stick to precident - core set has white borders. I realize Wizards is a company and wants to do things to make more money, which is good for us collectors, but I don't like gimmics. I don't even like foil cards, or the new card face or the new font the car...

Some other online forums have rules where new members have to respond to X number of posts before they can open their own thread. Would that work, or would spammers then just post their ads as responces to legitimate threads?

If it isnt a wizards product, how do they get around copyright issues unless Wizards is licencing them the rights to print the card?

Q: Q: I've noticed that a lot of times, Alpha and Beta are not italicized in writing as other regular sets such as Time Spiral. Why are these two particularly different?
--Katherine
Fremont, CA

A: From Del Laugel, Senior Magic Editor:

Kathrine,

The answer to your question can be found in the Magic Style Guide, a rather bulky document maintained by Magic lead editors over the years. Here’s an except from the “Product Namesâ€￾ section:

Product names with release dates

Core sets (A.K.A. advanced-level sets)
Limited Edition, includes Alpha (8/1993) and Beta (10/1993)
Unlimited Edition (12/1993)
Revised Edition (4/1994)
Fourth Edition (4/1995)
Fifth Edition (3/1997)
Sixth Edition (4/1999), known as Classic (Sixth Edition) at its release
Seventh Edition (4/2001)
Eighth Edition (7/2003)
Ninth Edition (7/2005)
Tenth Edition (7/2007)


That shows that Alpha and Beta aren’t italicized, but it doesn’t explain why. For more information, we need to turn to the “Treatment of Specific Termsâ€￾ section:

Alpha Not italicized because it was never a product sold under that name. Note that Alpha is considered a set, not an edition.

Beta Not italicized because it was never a product sold under that name. Note that Beta is considered a set, not an edition.

Limited Edition Refers to the Alpha and Beta sets together; not italicized because it was never a product sold under that name.

And there’s the problem. Unlimited Edition was the first set name that actually appeared on packaging. Alpha and Beta started as unofficial terms but were later adopted into the language of the game.

What exactly is MPS or magic premier shop (assuming that's what MPS stands for)? Are these a promotional item? What for? Why are they only in japanese and not being released in the states? Lastly, is this art only being used for these lands, or it art from land in another set? Inquiring minds want t...

Has anyone from Wizards ever confirmed that the Alpha cut 4th edition cards even exist? How do we know this isnt a big conspiracy?

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/askwizards/0107 Q: Q: What's the deal with Fylgja? The printed card has a mana cost of {W}, and the mana symbol on the card is the "old" white mana symbol even though all the other cards in the Ice Age set feature the "modern" white mana symbol.

I just bought 5 dollar frames at hobby lobby. They are plain black and look really nice. Last night i put them up on my bedroom wall. I'm not dissapointed.

Prints+ Shipping = $45
$5 frames X 5 = $25

Framed Guru Prints = $70
