Due to the increase in difficulty when it comes to entering Legacy or even maintaining a collection, Bazaar of Boxes has decided to fully allow proxies at the Bazaar of Boxes Series. We do however maintain a few guidelines and rules pertaining to proxies:
- We require actual proxies, so that means no small paper slips with just the card name written onto it
- There is no (no-no-no) limit to the maximum amount of proxies you can use. So, reach for the sky!
- You can use real Magic cards and proxies in the same deck
- Make sure your proxies are the same size as actual Magic cards. For reference: a Magic card is 88.9mm by 63.5mm
- Proxies have to be in full color, matching the original colors of the card you’re proxying. So, no black and white Volcanic Islands
- Printed proxy papers have to be either glued onto a Magic card (with a glue stick, for example) or added to a perfect-fit-sleeved-Magic card. We would advise using a tiny bit of adhesive to make sure the proxy paper has no way to move around
- We require you to sleeve your entire deck. If you’re using proxies and real Magic cards, sleeve them both in the same manner. So, if you’re using double sleeving for your real cards, you’ll do the same for the proxies
- The main rule of thumb is: make sure your proxies are recognizable from a distance
These proxies weren’t allowed because of obvious reasons, bonus points for trying!
This wasn’t allowed because of the potential of marked cards because some proxies sticking out.
Both MTG Press and ScryFall will do just fine in terms of finding your proxies. MTG Press will be the most straightforward one out of the two. For the appropriate size we recommend scaling between 100-110%.
After-Market Proxies & WCD/CE/IE cards
We’ll allow after-market proxies (or ‘fakes’) as well. We’re here to have fun, get together and enjoy the gathering aspect of Magic the Gathering. If you’re in the possession of these ‘fakes’, then that’s up to you – as long as the art is of the actual Magic card you’re using. The same applies for WCD (World Championship Deck), CE (Collectors’ Edition) and IE (International Edition) cards – these will be allowed as well.
