For my 1st post on the Mana Drain I'd like to share a picture of my Lapis Lazuli Vault deck in Old School 95 format. I need to "replace" the 4 Alpha Power Sink with 4 Korean and the Mana Vaults (2 Revised and the 1 Unlimited) for Korean. For the Unlimited Power and the Italian Tabernacle well... Don't judge me !
This is what I played to a 2nd place Skype tournament this month. If you're not familiar with it, check the timewalking blog !
Korean is great
What do you guys think about alters?
Do you like them/collect them/hate them?
I like them now (did not like them some time ago) but only if it is not fully covering the image. For me it's important that the original image of the cards is maintained and you can identify it.
@chase_dagger It's to accentuate alpha corners. Plus a lot of people use black sleeves, and accidental theft of your opponents creatures (because Animate Dead) is a real thing. Especially when you've had a couple of beers. A third reason is that beat up edges look more crisp.
Back to the alters topic (because maybe it is one of the pimp related matters that is more spectacular and unique) here are some alters I got which I'm very happy with:
Do you have any pics to share?
We know you have some beautiful cards :)))))))
