Altered cards question.
« on: February 24, 2013, 03:55:16 AM »
What is going to be the ruling (in tournaments) for Altered cards? I am a huge fan of them and I wounder what the ruling will be. (Like when people take a card and paint a new picture on them.) I dont know how many people will alter their cards, as the mage wars cards have far more detail then your average card game, but Im sure someone will do it. My opinion would be if the text is clear and not altered in any way, its fine.
Where does my greatest enemy lie?
It has been around since the dawn of time,
it follows your loved ones as well as mine,
takes the form of a mountain as well as a flower,
it cannot be outrun by the greatest of power.
Where does my greatest enemy lie?

This is how Heat and I would rule them.

 Altered art is okay, as long as it doesn't make the original art unrecognisable, contain offensive images, or obscure the name or mana cost of the card. However, the head judge is the ultimate authority on what is and is not acceptable, so always check with your head judge beforehand.

Since it is ultimately up to the head judge, being okay in one tournament doesn't guarantee that it'll be okay in another. Always check with the head judge before every tournament to make sure.

I hope that helps.

That is what I kinda assumed. Just with no official ruling so far, I thought it would make a good topic, and would need discussion at one point or another.
