Magic The Gathering Collection

As of 2 weeks ago, I was taught how to play MTG by my dear husband who knew I'm a total sucker for crap like this. Of course I'm completely hooked to the game and it's like a small war inside my head to not go out and buy more cards. After all, he already bought me the Return to Avacyn fat pack and an angel starter deck as gifts. -_- Must resist.

In the grand excitement of learning the rules and terminology of the wonderful world of Magic, I finally understand a lot more jokes and conversations I've seen and heard at conventions and online. Like a lot. I'd like to feature a  few really cool MTG related items from Etsy. Sadly these are things I will probably never buy since I try not to get sucked into fandoms but other MTG fans should definitely take a look!

One of the coolest things I've found are these 3D card/life counters. Granted we just scribble our scores on paper since we're cheap as hell, these would be super nice, eh? I've seen a lot of these 3D cards but I think no one does it better than Tigress Graphics. The cuts are clean, the layers are well thought out, and the end product looks very professional.

Another great 3D card maker is IntangibleVirtue. These cards are very nicely cut as well, but what I really like is that they use foam board between layers, which creates a much bolder 3D look for the image as a whole.

Of course there are quite a few deck boxes made of leather and wood, jewelry made from spindown dice, and MTG themed items, but I love the use of the cards. Here are a few more quick picks:

Recycled mini notebooks by StalkingMarla, perfect for a portable nerd-out to scribble out random whatevers. Click to go to the listing.

More wonderful items by one of my favorite acrylic jewelry designers, LicketyCut. Click to go to the listing.

Custom leather deck boxes by FoxAndDragon. These are some of the nicer leather ones I've seen and they do custom orders! Click to go to the listing.

Now I've seen people selling dice bags and dice by the handfuls and it took me a really long time to understand it. This adorable orc dice bag by MyFunkyCamelot is perfect for anyone who wants that super cool bag for all their dice! Click to go to the listing.
