What Alpha cards were changed for Beta?

Post by cataclysm80 » Fri Aug 14, 2015 2:52 am

I'm doing a little work on an interesting project, and need to know which Alpha cards were changed for the Beta print run.

Does anyone have a list?

Circle of Protection: Black (new card)
Volcanic Island (new card)
Plains 3 (new card)
Forest 3 (new card)
Mountain 3 (new card)
Swamp 3 (new card)
Island 3 (new card)

Cyclopean Tomb (casting cost)
Orcish Artillery (casting cost)
Orcish Oriflamme (casting cost)
Elvish Archers (power/toughness)
Force of Nature (text box mana symbol)
Phantasmal Forces (text box mana symbol)
Death Ward (artist credit)
Sedge Troll (artist credit)
Red Elemental Blast (card type)

Did I miss any?

Thanks.

Dave Howell was telling me about how they only burned film (color separations for making printing plates) for the Beta cards that needed changed from the Alpha printing. Carta Mundi then blanked out those cards on the Alpha films and made printing plates with the blank spots. Then they used a step and repeat process with their camera to put the Beta cards in the correct spot to finish making the Beta printing plates. That's why the changed cards could look different or be missing the little white spots in the corners. That's just a brief explanation, I'll write it out more thoroughly later.
