can anyone provide a scan of a full double card? i need the two fronts and two backs composing the card to understand how it's cut and some minor details like the footer

Similarly, I could also really use a scan each at maximum DPI of the Full Moon and Emrakul symbols in the upper left of flip/meld cards, so I can attempt to make svgs from them. No need for the full cards.

Meld works better for the Emrakul symbol since it'll be larger, and having scans from two or three different cards for each would make it easier to eliminate the printing artifacts; but beggars can't be choosers.


(These have been provided, thank you.)

Just making a couple notes.

It has been a convention that wide advertisements (read perpendicular the face of the card) must be turned clockwise to be normal. The six "half" eldrazi cards must be turned counterclockwise to be normal.

There are 5 reprinted SOI tokens in this set. Their faces are identical to the original SOI tokens, including the expansion symbol. They do however have EMN advertisement backs. They are Human Soldier, Spirit, Devil, Insect, and Wolf.

Split cards also must be rotated clockwise, correct?

Why the shift for meld cards?

Do the SOI reprints show SOI in the OCR area or EMN and how are they numbered?

I think that's backwards, actually. Based on the Eldritch Moon Card Gallery (and what images I can find of the cards) the meld cards are oriented so that the bottom of the melded card is towards the right of the card in its normal tall alignment, i.e. one 90 degree clockwise turn will put them in the correct spot to be an untapped meld. See https://www.parkage.com/docs/illustrations/828000/828773.jpg, http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/card-image-gallery/eldritch-moon-2016-06-28, etc.

It's strange, I know. But I double checked and all 6 of the physical cards I scanned required a counterclockwise rotation to be normal.

Lets consider the clockwise scinario: A sleeved, assembled, untapped meld would have sleeve openings on the right side of the meld. When the meld becomes tapped, the sleeve openings would face the player. If a tapped meld dies, they would have to rotate the cards 180 degrees before putting them into their "Aside" pile, for lack of a better term. It doesn't feel right.

Split cards do rotate clockwise.

I think I misunderstood what you were saying maybe. If the bottom of the meld side is on the right side of the card, and the sleeve slot is on the right side of the meld card, that agrees with what I was seeing. Isn't that the same orientation we ship split cards in though?

Like I'm assuming that, just as raw single-card images, they go like this:

Yup, Skibulk is right. If you take a card and do a right to left flip on a normal magic card, the back is oriented correctly. Flipping a split card from the back oriented up, you turn your head 90° counterclockwise to view. However, on the Meld cards, flipping over you turn your head 90° clockwise to view the back properly.

charlequin's example, the image should be rotated 180° if we want to match how they're actually printed.

That's super bizarre that WotC's own images (and the ones you see everywhere else) are backwards from the way they're actually printed.

Thanks for posting the LQ pics, but the png extension seems to be breaking the import. Any tricks to fix that?

@Kudit

I take reprints seriously and I would classify any difference between printings as a new card. Here are scans of the reprinted SOI Tokens with EMN backs.

Awesome. Thanks. Odd that they wouldn't just change the set shortcode since they were changing the backs...
