I’m new to Magic, where should I start?

If you just want to get some excellent, high utility Magic cards, we recommend Fetch LandsDual Lands, and/or Shock Lands, as your mana base is one of the most important aspects to your deck. Look at Triomes if you’re using 3+ color decks. Good land cards will help boost any deck.

From there, Mana Rocks are another way to ramp and boost the consistency of your deck and spellcasting.

Further recommendations are highly dependent on what type of deck and colors you are playing, as well as the format. If you have a color picked out for your deck, we recommend browsing the specific color sections to find cards that fit with your theme or deck structure.

Are Proxy cards fair to play with?

Wizards of the Coast doesn’t allow for proxy cards in official tournaments. That said, most playgroups are perfectly fine with using proxies. If you play with a closeknit, regular group we recommend talking to your MtG group to get their take.

If you are lone wolf player who joins commander night and plays in FNM we definitely recommend proxies. They can make your deck far more competitive on a budget, and it’s extremely unlikely that anyone will know or care that you are using proxy cards. 

What is so great about your MtG proxy cards?

We are known for having the highest quality Magic: the Gathering proxy cards in the market. Our proxy cards are suitable for casual games, or FNM. Use them in sanctioned tournaments at your own risk. 

Our cards use state of the art printing and production. Our cards are realistic, and have the same dimensions as a typical Magic Card. 

Note that we do have some variation in color between print runs. To the vast majority of people this won’t be noticeable. However, we do recommend sleeving your proxy cards when they are in play.

What is Special about Proxy King cards?

We wrote an in-depth blog post that explains why our proxy cards are the best.

The takeaway is that we are the original proxy maker. And, we strive to make the highest quality and most realistic proxies on the market.

We work with the best commercial printers in the world. No joke, our printing partner’s printing press is an 8-figure machine that is one of only six in the world. We also have an incredible design team working to ensure we get the details of our custom proxy cards precisely correct. From the print quality to the weight and dimensions of the card, we strive to be the best proxy maker out there.

Some other companies out there use cheap square stickers that they put on their cards. We don’t do that, we only print directly to high quality card stock. We only use or order vinyl stickers for our packaging and labels, not our proxies.

Does that mean you should try to pass them off as original? Of course not. But we engineer our proxies so that when you are playing FNM or kitchen table magic, people won’t notice.

We also have excellent prices. We print our proxies at scale, allowing us to price our cards at an affordable price.

Finally, our customer service is the best. Our team responds to messages daily, and we try to give you a great buying experience.

What is an MtG proxy card?

A proxy card takes the place of an original magic card in your deck. Using proxies in place of original cards makes it so that you can keep your originals in perfect condition.

A proxy card is a ‘stand in’ for a card. In other word it’s a replica or replaces a card in your deck. There can be many reasons to use proxies. For example you might want to use a proxy to play with so you don’t damage a super high value card. If you have a $300 card or even a $30, you don’t want to risk bending it right? 

Another common reason that folks buy proxies is because they are on a budget. If you want to make a competitive deck, you need dual lands, fetch lands, and other extremely OP staples. These cards cost tens to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Unfortunatley, many people are priced out of competitive play without proxy cards.

A third reason is play testing. Again, MtG cards are expensive. It’s nice to be able to experiment with a bunch of different high value cards and see what works before dropping loads of cash on original cards. 

How long does a game of Magic take?

It depends on the format. Typical Magic the Gathering standard play usually takes 30 minutes to an hour. Multiplayer formats like commander can take 1-3 hours.

What is Magic: the Gathering?
