Hey /tg/ what's your opinion on proxies? Is it ok to use it if you have the regular card? Does it have to look like the original card? Do you use them?
pic related, I've been using this card on my decks while having 4 nissas secured on a binder
Since I am not a tourneyfag, I don't mind any proxy as long as we both know the card and its effect.
I'm one of those guys who would rather play against ideas, not procedural formalities.
Many pro players are the complete opposite. "Pay to play baby."
No problems if everyone is cool with it. I often times use cards from different languages, especially for old school pokemon. Most tourneyfags will find the idea abhorrent though, but they aren't in it for fun anyways so why play with them.
If you aren't playing competitive and the card you want to use is a prize card that hasn't been reprinted yet then that's fine, so long as your opponent agrees to it.
the "pay to play" mentality doesn't exactly apply here - he HAS the 4 copies of the card, they're just in his binder, I assume because he doesn't want to risk damaging them.
at a sanctioned tourney, you'll have to bust them out. But for casual play I'm 100% okay with you proxying cards you own.
Op here. I take really good care of my cards, so yes, that's one of the reasons, the other one is that the proxy is just to much prettier. why can't wizards print the cards like this?
It depends, if its a sanctioned event, pull them out and sleeve em up.
Edh, and you have 12 decks that use an underground sea, so long as you can construct the deck without proxies I don't care at all if you use proxies.
