Magic is a complicated game to produce. From creating the cards, to localizing into eleven languages, to print runs and packaging - there's a lot of moving parts that come together before you bust open your booster pack.

Let's look at a few Dragon's Maze cards and see how their foil undersheet looks with the rest of the card stripped away.
