**Full Set of Chinese Black-Bordered 4th Edition Artist Proofs
Anson illustrated 33 cards for Magic the Gathering's Fourth Edition core set, which was printed in the Chinese language for the first time, thus they are black bordered. However, Anson did not received any artist proofs for Blood Lust, Llanowar Elves nor Shanodin Dryads. Thus a "complete" Chinese set totals 30 artist proofs.
A full set of Chinese BB proofs includes the following: Animate Dead, Black Mana Battery, Creature Bond, Dancing Scimitar, Deathgrip, Diabolic Machine, Disintegrate, Dragon Engine, Elvish Archers, Eternal Warrior, Flight, Holy Strength, Hurloon Minotaur, Ironclaw Orcs, Ivory Cup, Jade Monolith, Lifetap, Living Artifact, Lure, Onulet, Orcish Artillery, Paralyze, Plague Rats, Pyrotechnics, Sengir Vampire, Siren's Call, Throne of Bone, Vampire Bats, Wall of Bone & Wall of Brambles.
One of the rarest types of Magic the Gathering cards, artist proofs (in most cases) are limited to a maximum number of 50 in existence. They can only be sourced from the artist and are often purchased with commissioned sketches or paintings on the their blank white backs; giving collectors a more sought-after and personalized version of the card. When ordered with custom artwork your proof(s) will come with it's own Certificate of Authenticity. Choose custom artwork from the drop down menu above.
