Meld test prints

Does anyone have any information on the new meld test prints? I've seen a couple that have Endbringer on two cards. Does anyone know how rare they are and where they came from? Are there any other versions?

Thanks for the input!

Re: Mail Brag!

I love seeing what everyone posts here! This is the start of my modest summer collection. The Phantasmal Terrain has a bit of wear, but everything else is beautiful.

Re: The First Artist Proofs Beta or Collectors?

I don't have a huge interest in artist proofs, but I enjoy the history of the game so that was a very interesting read. Thanks for the information!
