It's harder to see the difference with the naked eye on the darker cards, but the measurements show that the Swamp on the left is 4th, while the Swamp in the middle is 3rd. Hmm, that actually differs from what i supposed. I checked the positioning of the word "Land" in the card type line compared t...

The Drudge Skeletons on top is from 4th edition. The misprint Drudge Skeletons on bottom is 3rd edition. This one was more difficult. It turns out that the art border is larger on a Land than on the other cards, so I had to measure to the inner edge of the white card border instead of to the art bo...

More scans for personal headache and CSI measurement investigations. Ornitopher 3rd WB is correct, 4th version is misspelled. Cursed land, both versions are wrong according to what the card does ( both say the the land deals the damage, but it should be the enchantment, 3rd BB and 2PS version is co...

Both wb revised and 4th ed had 121 rares so there should only be one version of each rare on the 11x11 sheet, which makes possibly having extra version implausible, unless they used some other sheet size or as others have pointed out the Rivalries/2ps starter boxes version of Warp Artifact explain ...

correct, there are no german 3rd WB Sedge Trolls listed on MCM, they even use the french picture, where for all other cards they use german pics. Hi It's not because a card is not on MCM that it means, it doesn't exist. Let's keep finding answers, with 101% proof (As Enrico will say). 10 questions,...

A regular print Drudge Skeletons does exist. Here is a link showing the misprint and regular side by side. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MTG-MAGIC-THE-GATHERING-DRUDGE-SKELETONS-SWAMP-GERMAN-MISPRINT-NM-/121165510943?pt=Trading_Card_Games_US&hash=item1c3606f91f&nma=true&si=ukK%252F2uE3b13ae0Tcbmt9h8z44P8...

Many thanks for those excellenct pictures! It helps a lot that multiple cards are in the picture becuase that way the cards dimensions will stay the same relative to each other when I enlarge the picture. I have enlarged the pictures significantly on my computer and held a fine measuring device up t...

=== 4th edition: German === Drudge Skeletons: The early printings of German 4E Drudge Skeletons have the borders and art for a swamp. This error may also exist in the German Revised, perhaps unlimited german revised only? at any rate, it's clear that the Drudge Skeletons/Swamp is a double mistake f...

Forest (4E-german): One Forest card has the picture for a Plains.

Is that correct? My own German Forest/Plains is Black Bordered. Does a White Border version exist?

Regarding the El-Hajjaj misprint... If the round dots above the j are any indication, then the card must be from 4th. If the misprint were from 3rd, then the j would use slashes. If mmgun has a regular El-Hajjaj from 4th with round dots above the j, then I suspect the misprint was printed in place o...

I would also like to see a scan of the Swamp/Drudge Skeleton's that is supposed to be from 4th. My own and the one Dragsamou posted show the lowercase g's & p going down into the art box frame, which to me, indicates that they are from 3rd Edition. If you have one that does not show this, or is diff...

Another curiosity regarding the lowercase i's... I've noticed that on the BLACK BORDER Revised cards, most card names use the i with the slash, but for some reason Twiddle in German & Italian (I don't have a French Black Border Twiddle yet) uses the i with the round dot. I find it odd that we have ...

I suppose it's possible that it could be misprinted in both sets, that hadn't occured to me. Seems unlikely.

I know that regular German White Border versions exist of both El-Hajjaj & Warp Artifact, but not sure whether they are 3rd or 4th Edition.
