Artist Proofs FAQ
What is an Artist Proof? An Artist Proof is one of the rarest types of MTG cards, as they are a limited set of cards without the official card back. Instead the card back is left blank.
Where do they come from? These cards are given to the respective Magic Artist from Wizards of the Coast after a set is released.
How rare are they? Each artist gets 50 regular artist proofs as well as 30 foil artist proof cards (If they had a foil print run). And if you order one with a sketch or painting, that artist proof becomes one of a kind!
