The etching treatment sounds kinda cool. And we know there will be some secret cards since the scans say out of 99 on them.
As always feel free to rate and discuss the cards. This is the first set we’ve had (partially) up on the site before it was released, which is pretty cool.
Alright, well time to make dinner (2.5 pounds of baked potatoes… yum).
