  • Pick a card, any card...no, not THAT card!

There's too many to keep up with right now!

four beasts, mail chimp....i shouldn't have even tried.

If by that you mean trying to collect EVERYTHING that comes out, then of course you shouldn't have tried!

But if you're talking simply about listing them here - please, by all means, do the best you can!  The post need not be fancy - a name, a photo and a link to the creator is plenty.  I'd even settle for the name and the photo.

WOW ya keep us posted. For us newbies
BC deck preview anyone?

You're right - Lion's Den Casino from Ellusionist.

Still debating whether I want to renew.  A lot of the decks last year were hit or miss for me.

I want to take a second to remind everyone that you should list a deck only when it is either available at retail or being fulfilled and shipping from the KS project creator or their fulfillment service.  No pre-sales.  No "it's shipping soon."  The reason is two-fold.

First, I'm making sure that only those decks actually on the market get listed and only when they arrive.  Who knows?  Some natural or man-made disaster could keep a deck from reaching its recipients, or a KS project could turn out to be a scam and no one gets their decks.

Second, I'm working out a rough chronology of when these decks are released.  I won't have exact dates often, except perhaps for commercial releases from the bigger companies and the printers.  But having a ballpark figure is close enough.

De'vo's Signature Series "Card Masters"
by De`vo


February saw the release of the much anticipated Card Masters series from De`vo. As usual the deck sold out quickly from xtremehandz.com and have showed up at various online retailers. The fully custom Card Masters decks come in two edition, the Gold Gilded edition which features a gold seal and the non-gilded edition which you can distinguish by it's Blue seal. This deck is a step away from PRO XCM decks we've seen released lately by De`vo and is ideal for any use, including Magic. Both editions are extremely limited so if they take your fancy, be sure to check your favorite retailer soon for availability.

If you're a fan of this deck head on over to Theory 11 for a closer look. Of course these are also available from other online retailers so be sure to check yours as well.

Thanks Don, just trying to catch up. March didn't see me on here much, if at all. As usual, the deck releases never stop coming. Bring on the good and gooder I say, hahaha.

I'd guess bigger changes.  Perhaps they will make it an actual crowdfunding site this time around, as opposed to a retail site dressed in crowdfunding drag...
