M10 blue (Jace) Planeswalker deck

Post by Alien_Starfighter_Pilot » Fri Jan 13, 2017 7:38 am

Hey, I was looking at the copyright date of some planeswalker decks to match them to the correct core set, when I notice I had one with a 2008 copyright date. The deck is still sealed. Can anyone explain this?

Hi Clay

What do you want to know exactly ? Is this the front pic ? I don't collect those but I have 5 of them in French from 10th Edition (and 5 Japanese), my Jace Sample deck is with a 2009 date (both in French and Japanese), and doesn't look like yours:

I have no idea if the French Jace deck variant B has the 2009 date also as I don't own it. Maybe some members that collect those in English can help.

Hey Alexis, I am wondering what core set this Planeswalker deck corresponds to. Tenth Edition was 2007, and M10 was 2009 as you know. was this 2008 Planeswalker deck some part of the 15th anniversary celebration? was it given out at a Play Magic event? I'm wondering what I have.

The deck in question has some additional numbers, as shown in the below picture (with some M10 Planeswalker decks).

Image

In case you are having trouble reading the numbers, the M10 deck is 20025075000002 EN. The mystery 2008 deck is B0000007778 200B7778002 EN.

Here's why I'm wondering if it was part of some Play Magic event (the 2008 deck is under the M10 deck):

Image

There are no other differences between the 2008 and M10 Planeswalker decks, other than what is pictured.

BTW, I haven't figured out how to put more than 1 image in a post using HostingPics yet.

Hi Clay

Do you own the 10 different decks from M10 ?

I have 5 M10 decks, one of each color, unless both versions come in the Half Decks box. The Half Decks box was sealed until I opened it to show an M10 deck for comparison with the 2008 deck.

Will the 2008 deck contain a mix of 10th edition and/or Shards of Alara cards?
Ok, for M10, you are missing 5 decks, there's 10 different ones in total:
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/10th_ ... mple_decks

So first step will be to verified the date for the 5 others, if it's 2009 or some with 2008.

Same applies for M11:
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

M12:
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

Starting with M13 Only 5 decks:
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

M14:
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

M15 (That's when I've started adding them cause of the cards numbered 270 and higher that do not appear in Magic 2015 booster packs.)
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

Magic Origins (Each sample deck has several cards numbered 273 and higher that do not appear in Magic Origins booster packs.)
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Magic ... mple_decks

Then in 2016: Welcome Decks
http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Welco ... mple_decks

All right, I have the answer:
Starting in 2008, WOTC launched the "Play Magic" and few monthes after "Here I Rule program" (November 2008), and those Planeswalkers decks were available through that program.
