Such a tease...

William Brinkman ‏@HEXWilliam
The first exclusive alt art promo for Collectors is in. I'm really digging this piece over the card's typical art.

I am already so excited for these promo's and this certainly doesn't help :p

Ohh that's not cool. Maybe Cory will show it in his next blog post, that should be today or tomorrow right?

So much tease.

Oh, I can make that worse...

It looks great. There are lots of AA cards that the collector in me likes to have, but I'd always end up playing the original. In this case I think the AA art would win out.

At least we can play the AA cards without worrying about damaging them :) Unless your one of those who would prefer their AA cards without any double back stats...

We need card protectors that protect your card from accruing game stats!

The whole notion of virtual cards having their value depreciated by playing them without virtual protection from virtual wear and tear just screams to me of an episode of the Simpsons featuring the comic book guy waiting to be made.

Lies!!! ;) Just the fact that it was deposited into someone's inventory means it has digital history. Someone report Will's deceptive marketing of his auctions!

It's because Cory scribbled numbers on his first Mox, we now all have to suffer with random names on our cards.... thanks for that ;)

Oh btw:

@HEXWilliam: @AndrewABZ @coryhudsonjones @HexTCG I think that wants to be a day-of surprise for collectors. There should be some surprises on reward day.

It's all your fault now that I can't stop thinking about how much I would like card protectors now to keep that from happening. Seriously lol I would rather buy a card without those "digital fingerprints" because that would just feel like a used card.

I'm picturing a Coytotle shaman named Launderer of the Cards who will remove all double back stats for a donation of gold as another option :)

You joke now, but soon the sleeves will have modifiers for how long they protect cards. Durability on sleeves will become a whole new trading market and the Sales reps will get out their whips and cackle maniacally by making them uber expensive or rare to find the sleeves made out of Unobtainium.

Soon hex will become a sleeve trading simulator and the card game a niche mini game to the really high stakes game of finding sleeves with unusual sprite and particle animations.

And then, when you think you've got a handle on the sleeve market and things have reached a calm after the storm...

They introduce...

Deck boxes.

OHHHH SHHHHIIIIIIIIIIII WHAT THE FFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Minds will be blown. Fortunes won, lost.

Really looking forward to seeing not only the art of these cards, but also which cards you guys select. I think alt art cards are just cool in general, but I have to admit that one of my concerns since the KS has been just hoping that you guys select cards that I'll actually want to play. Either way, I think I'll be keeping mine. So nobody will have to worry about getting mine off the AH all covered with my digital fingerprints. :p

Well, they'll be rare or legendary one, most of those seem pretty fun--and if they're not fun, you can trade 'em for plat to get cards that are fun.

Do we know that for sure?

Well, I think it was said back in the kickstarter, I'm not 100% on that, though.

Aradon

Yes, I don't have a source off the top of my head, but it was confirmed that they would be rare/legendaries.

This was confirmed during kickstarter, yes. If I would be Shadowelf, I would find you the quote... but i'm not :P

Just hope whatever cards are AA that they are playable, I'd hate to be sat on cool looking cards I never use. Or on the flip side I'd hate to play weaker decks just to use my AA cards.

I'd be happy with an in-engine double back :P
