Mage Wars Card Sleeves
« on: January 18, 2013, 06:01:13 PM »
I'd like to sleeve my cards, but would like to use Mage wars card sleeves. IMO for easier play if there are sets with the logo and different background color. That way there is never a fear of mixing cards if two people bring their separate boxes.

the problem with this is that the only kind of card sleeves that work are the cheap penny sleeves. i believe normal sleeves are to big.

I use KMC Matte sleeves and they fit great... I use red and blue to match the action markers

Yup Duke is correct KMC is one of my top choices also

Are the MW's cards MTG cut or Yugioh size cuts? I've yet to compare because I sold those money sinks

Yes but the KMC I found do not stick as often as some other sleeves when used with binders.

The spellbooks are intentionally designed to accommodate sleeved cards.

To Texan85: I hear ya! I am dying to get my hands on some Mage Wars themed sleeves!

So aside from KMC (which sounds great), what other experiences are people having with sleeving the cards?

Any good Matte Sleeve will prevent the card from sticking in the binder

KMC, Ultra Pro, and Max all make nice Matte Sleeves

You will want to use the same brand in a spell book the colors tend to be slightly different between brands.

I use Ultra Pro matte sleeves in four different colours and they work great in the spellbooks.

Are there "mage wars" sleeves in the works?  I agree with the OP.  I'd LOVE to see colored sleeves with the Mage Wars logo on them so players would not have to worry about accidentally mixing their cards up with another players.
