Buy Proxy Magic Cards UPD

Our S33 card stock has an extra smooth finish and is a card stock which is considered to be one of the finest available: A 1 to 1 matching cardstock to MTG/PKM cards. This card stock provides more visual contrast than standard stock, keeping the graphics printed on each card vivid in colors.

buy proxy magic cards

Our MtG proxies use the latest printing technology, so they fit in perfectly with your existing decks. These MtG proxy cards are printed and cut to the exact dimensions of a normal magic card. We are constantly adding new cards, so check back often for the latest.

Another common reason that folks buy proxies is because they are on a budget. If you want to make a competitive deck, you need dual lands, fetch lands, and other extremely OP staples. These cards cost tens to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Unfortunatley, many people are priced out of competitive play without proxy cards.

We are known for having the highest quality Magic: the Gathering proxy cards in the market. Our proxy cards are suitable for casual games, or FNM. Use them in sanctioned tournaments at your own risk.

Further recommendations are highly dependent on what type of deck and colors you are playing, as well as the format. If you have a color picked out for your deck, we recommend browsing the specific color sections to find cards that fit with your theme or deck structure.

Wizards of the Coast has a problem. They are stuck between a rock and a hard spot. The high cost of cards makes the barrier to entry for new players high. But, on the other hand, if Wizards of the Coast reprints all the super valuable cards, they risk alienating collectors who have been customers for years or decades.

Buying proxy cards is ideal if you are looking for high quality, realistic MTG cards. At Proxy King we try to make our proxies as realistic as possible. This lets you join games and play without people noticing you are running proxy cards in your Magic deck. We have created over 1,000 different MTG proxy cards that we print with high fidelity printers.

I apologize in advance if i have broken any forum rules, I am rather new here. I have been scouring the internet to look for a mtg proxy website that sells very high quality proxy cards so that i no longer have to print off paper ones to glue later. However, due to a lot of back and forth, i seem to be having issues find a good provider that i can trust. Are there any websites you guys would highly recommend to visit? Or a reseller of proxies that proves to have a really great track record of quality, passable proxies? More so just the color and stuff. I dont mind if it doesnt pass the other tests. Just want to make putting copies of the same, original card i own into my other decks without proxies being glaringly bad.

Hey all, for those looking to find a good proxy site, I've tested quite a few options. Some of which have been around a long time and others who have been around more recently. Comparison of card stock, printing quality, price and reasonability, I've concluded that is my top winner. A rather newer business, I've found the overall quality of the product speaks better than words. Sleeved or not, the proxys tend to look similar to real copies. I've been happy with my first order since they first started to advertise, and still stand by my proxy provider of choice when I go on a shopping spree of the finer MTG cards and need a good few proxys in the decks that use the same card. Go check them out!

Disclaimer: Proxies should be used for the sole purpose of being just that, a proxy. I do not condone the attempt to sell proxies as legitimate cards and you should do the same too! The point of proxies is to provide a tangible representation of a card you desire, but without the needed benefit to buy multiple copies for multiple decks, or to save those flash RL cards you made as an investment. Please be considerate to all those who love MTG and utilize proxies in their correct manner!

Some people just write the name and abilities on a piece of paper covering a reversed card in a sleeve, some write the name of a card on the back of a bulk card like basic lands, and many people just print out the card in question. The latter is the type of proxy I wanna talk about today.

Sheepwave here. Proxies are pretty cool, actually. While this statement would have started a fight a few years ago, I think all of us have probably decided where we stand on them, and I have no desire to argue about that. Wizards of the Coast have stated that they have absolutely no interest in cracking down on what they internally refer to as "playtest cards." provided they are being used in the appropriate contexts. (I will continue to use the word proxy, as it is the term the community has settled on.)

To many people, myself included, digital art that is printed onto blank cardstock is a great way to express themselves creatively in the casual formats they love. Proxies of this kind can make cards whose prices are absolutely unreasonable for the average person possible to experiment with, or get to try formats they are priced out of. One of my Breaking the Rules articles is about a card you have to proxy to even access.

But there are limits to everything. A lot of people who agree with what I have written so far are not going to like what I have to say next: Almost all of the high-end proxies being used by the community violate the rules regarding proxymaking. Wizards of the Coast is extremely rare as IP holders go, in that they have a very cleanly defined Fan Content Policy.

Many new proxy-makers make the assumption that the only thing you aren't allowed to sell is exact recreations of scans of cards. This is not true. A Magic card contains lots of elements that Wizards' artists and designers made. Selling any of them, be they mana symbols, rules text and more, is copyright infringement. But at this point, I think we may have tunnel-visioned on that to the exclusion of other important matters. TheProxyGuy has been doing this a lot longer than I have and put it simply on Twitter:

However, humans are creative. Over time, dedicated users apparently found that it was possible to slip things through the cracks, by removing the right information from a card face. Unfortunately, doing so has two huge problems: First of all, if you are giving someone money and they are giving you an unofficial card of any sort, that is a violation of the very first rule of the Fan Content Policy, which is that things be FREE. You aren't really any less in the legal wrong for buying a proxy than you are for selling one.

As I was somewhat horrified to learn on Thursday, the site operated by allowing users to type a list of cards into a text prompt, then pull potential card faces from dozens of completely public cloud drives, all of which lacked copyright lines. This would be a problem even if all the work was genuinely transformative, but unfortunately, it was not. Several of the drives contained upscaled rips from Scryfall that had all been modified to lack trademark and copyright info.

Effectively, this site was The Pirate Bay of Magic cards, but without any of the anonymity. In fact, most of the users were using accounts with their real names. While it is easy to say this was just sheer carelessness, I think it speaks more to the fact that most people involved were driven by creativity first and simply did not understand the full ramifications. I have had to deal with people trying to profit off of illegal sale of stolen work before, and people who think they have something to hide take serious precautions. To me, this feels more like misconceptions about what was allowed enabling a party that got out of hand.

When I or most other proxy artists make a card, we are always very, very careful to follow the Fan Content Policy exactly. I cannot stress enough how lucky we are to have that policy. It means I can make my art as much as I want, with very clear rules about what to do, and know that as long as my work follows those rules, I am safe.

At this point, I was not the only one who had taken notice of the site. The party came to an inevitable end, with the site going inactive as of last night. While this was at least in part to myself and other large proxy creators reaching out to the person who originally created the tool to inform them just how far out of control it had gotten, this happening eventually was inevitable. I really hope that those who participated in the site recognize how much fire they were playing with, and stop doing it before Wizards legal is the one reaching out. I don't know where the line is, but I do know that uploading 39 thousand Scryfall scans with the copyright line removed to a public drive was way, way past it.

I have spent several days talking to those who were involved at the creative level, all of whom have expressed remorse and said they wish they had done things differently. A narrative emerged between those I spoke to. Over the last few months, what had started as a tool for artists to share with other artists had slowly become overrun with an undercurrent of toxicity. Several of them had faced threats and abuse simply for choosing to focus on making the cards they wanted to, rather than whatever someone demanded they do.

My moral stance is that use of proxies in casual settings harms no one. But nobody is entitled to abuse others to demand they be able to illegally buy thier work, or steal it without permission. Printing your own cards correctly and legally does take effort, but

aren't able to put that effort in, you are not entitled to simply steal them. Magic cards are not a physical need. Sadly, at this point the entire project seems like it may have been poisoned beyond steering to a point of recovery. Despite this, a few of the involved proxy artists and users are trying to resurrect it, doing things the right way this time.

Maybe you would rather print high-quality foils like I do. There is a setup cost, to be fair, but it's a much smaller cost than getting sued would be. I personally use an inkjet, vinyl sticker paper and cardstock. Every single file I have ever posted of my cards are the same source files I print, and anyone has my permission to print my unmodified work for thier own personal use. Mastering advanced printing techniques is an extremely rewarding endeavor I cannot recommend enough. 041b061a72
