Proxies:
All proxies must follow these guidelines:

Please do not use the back of a magic card for a proxie!

There are two types of acceptable proxies. The first and most basic is taking a basic land card and writing the details of the card on it. The second method is to take a card that shares some of the characteristics with the card that is being proxied and erase any characteristics that do not match, replacing them with the correct characteristics.

All proxies must have the following text neatly printed, using a extra fine point sharpie. Ball point pens may not be used:
• The full name of the card (no abbreviations or nicknames)
• Correct casting cost of the card including all colored mana symbols
• All relevant/game effecting text

When choosing what card to use as the base for an erased proxy players must follow these rules:
• The mana cost of the base spell must be the same as the card being proxied.
• The type of the card being proxied must be the same as the base card.
• The P/T of a creature being proxied must be the same as the base creature P/T
• When proxying a creature it may be difficult to find a creature where all characteristics match. In this case, mana cost is the most important, followed by the P/T, followed by the subtype. Any characteristics that do not match must be erased and corrected.
• The art box, card name, and text box must be totally erased. White out may not be used for this as it affects the stiffness of the card and may mark it.
• When adding text to the card do not use a ball point pen. A extra fine point sharpie is the best thing to use. A ball point pen can cause indentations on the card marking it.
• For clarity reasons, the use of cards with the new card frame is strongly encouraged
CE and IE that is clipped is also quite fine.

Hope that clears up any possible questions other than which duals will be given out and folks asking if they q'd or not.

****Special invites:
invites are given to folks who've shown to be contributors to the format and the community in general. Examples include the Forino brothers, Nick O'connor, Brad Daley, Nick Coss, Rich Shay, Brian Coval, Allen Fulmer, Pops Ferrante, etc....
I may not have thought of you right away but feel free to message me if you feel that i missed inviting you.


Cheers,
Cal

Well, I get to play for free, so I guess I need to go.  And I need one more FBB Sea still.

Man, I didn't realize that I had free entry too.

I'm going to see if I can switch my work weekends up in January.  I don't think it'll fly, but I would like to make this.

That thing you use when you are waiting for your real cards to come back from the alterist.

Alternatively, the thing you use instead of a Time Walk while your actual Time Walk is currently a coaster for icy, refreshing Coca-Cola from Subway.

I'm thinking it's time to come out of my sabbatical for this. Been way too long since I spent a day slinging cardboard.

The FB link isn't working for me. Could you post the details of the legacy side events so I can try to convince some of my legacy friends to carpool?
