October 2008 Contest

Post by l0qii » Wed Oct 01, 2008 2:23 pm

The famous Spanish 4th Edition misprint "Serra Elemental" is blue and shows the art for Time Elemental but has all the text of a Serra Angel. Although official DCI rules state that a card is defined by its text above all else, squt's misprint list suggests that this card is actually meant to be the Time Elemental. For set collectors this means there is a non-misprint Spanish BB Serra Angel that is needed for a complete set.

A similar misprint is the French BB Revised Aladdin's Ring with Jandor's Ring art. This is actually the Jandor's Ring card, with Aladdin's Ring text.

To confirm these once and for all, I am starting a contest. The first person to post scans of the NON-MISPRINT versions of both these cards wins.

The winner will receive 2 promo cards of my choice. If one person posts 1 and another person posts the other, the prize will be split. I will check people's lists first if they have one posted, otherwise the card will be random from whatever I have available.
