Five MTG Promos You Didn't Know Existed


What sets Magic the Gathering apart from other card games is the collectable aspect of it. Over the years, Wizards of the Coast has produced many special occasion promotional cards and today we're going to look at some of the most awesome collectables ever created!

 

Comic Con Blacked-Out Planeswalkers

These are pretty recent, so perhaps you've heard of them. Perhaps you were even one of those lucky few who managed to hit refresh at the right time on the Hasbro website. These were available at San Diego Comic Con (2013 and 2014) and on the Hasbro website for a limited time. The good news? Some of these are still Standard legal! Time to pimp out your deck for FNM.

Holiday Series

Every year (well, at least since 2006), Wizards of the Coast produces a Holiday promotional card for its employees and their family and friends. These Holiday promos are parodies of actual Magic cards; can you figure out the original versions? These cards are all silver-bordered, meaning they aren't tournament legal (think Unglued and Unhinged). Booo! Oh well, who wants to play some sweet cube?

You Compleat Me

Flavor judge! Oh my, this Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is absolutely stunning. Forget your pimped-out Japanese foil deck, this Praetor is in Phyrexian! These were given out as part of the Judge Rewards Program in 2014.

The Richard Garfield Series

What happens when the creator of Magic: the Gathering wants to celebrate a special event? He makes a card! These three promotional cards were created by Richard Garfield to commemorate his proposal to his wife, the birth of his first child, and the birth of his second child. These were given to his family and close friends.

The One-ofs

And now we get to the rarest of Magic: the Gathering cards. These cards are literally priceless as there is only one copy of each in existence. 1996 World Champion was awarded to Australia's Tom Chanpheng for winning the 1996 World Championship. It was sold to a private collector in 2001, and no one has heard of it since. Shichifukujin Dragon was created to celebrate the opening of the Japan DCI Tournament Center in Tokyo, Japan. The single copy was on display at the Tournament Center until it closed down on February 28, 2003. It has since been moved to the Hobby Japan head office where it currently resides.
