  • Playtest cards will be permitted. There are THREE ways of making Playtest cards:  1) Using Basic Land:  The first and most basic is taking a basic land card and writing the details of the card on it. 2) Altering an existing card: PREFERRED! The second method is to use a card that shares some of the characteristics with the card that you want to make as a Playtest Card and remove any characteristics that do not match, replacing them with the correct characteristics.  Methods for doing this can be found on Youtube.com. 3) Printed Slips:  the third is to print out all 75 cards, and slip the cuts sheets of paper into each sleeve. If you do this, every card must be printed on the same type of paper and have a basic land backing.
