Sure. I'd use a collector's edition Mox Sapphire as a proxy for the real thing in a proxy tournament rather than just a Plains with "Mox Sapphire" written on it if given the choice. It's cooler. But I remember seeing a collector's edition Mox Sapphire selling for $40. I wasn't even willing to pay $40 for a real card, let alone a proxy.Shabbaman;273855 said:They make beautiful proxies. A lot of vintage tournaments allow proxies.
I like these ones a bit more because they're the actual decks. There's a nostalgia factor here if you're playing with the whole deck. "Hey look, I'm using the deck that was in the world championships in 2000!" I haven't seen anyone actually play with one of these decks in a long time, but I would find it cool. Playing with just one of the gold-bordered cards in a deck would be pretty lame. "I couldn't find a real Winter Orb, so I'm using this one." I mean, come on. I guess it's still a better proxy than a basic land, but it takes away the whole point of the world championship edition decks in the first place. And ruining the commemorative cards by coloring over the borders is just stupid.Until two years ago Wizards printed these gold bordered world champions decks. I collected these. Apparently they're even worth some money, the ones I'm missing go for over $100... But I've played people that altered the gold borders so they could preted they played real cards. Pathetic.
Oh man, that deck was/is awesome. That's too bad about it being hard to find.Shabbaman;273915 said:Labarre's Pattern Rector!
