'The six' are watching over Minion #119's (my husband's) signed Naya Battlemage print and his green monster binder full (yes, FULL) of foil Naya Battlemages. Only the ones on that first page are signed, though. The bottom center is a friend's rendering of a Naya Battlemage. The minion card drawing appears to be a sliver chugging down multiple Mountain Dews. He got the minion card and print last year at Grand Prix Las Vegas.
I loved the Naya Battlemage art and started the obsession. Can I be Minion #119.5? :)
Nice stuff! I haven’t had anyone register through submit before… how ‘bout you make it official and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and make it official. I have added you to the registry though. - Justin
Redux of my version 3 Damia alter. Would like to do a minion giveaway with one of these soon!
I can’t wait to hear more about this! - Justin
Some of the collection of newly minted minion #355.
A lofty goal that needs help
One of our minions is very close to completing a set of Steve Argyle’s artist proofs… but a few key ones are elusive. If any of you have and would be willing to trade an artist proof of Admonition Angel, Chandra Ablaze and/or Slave of Bolas please let me know. I know that’s asking a lot.
So, just got my binder candy and I love it but, and this may be a stupid question, was my Minion card supposed to be with it? (It was not) ~Minion 299
It’s not a stupid question… but the membership cards are a game of catch-up for Steve and he has been making them for requests first. Eventually we hope to catch up to everyone, but people who specifically asked to receive one were put on a list and those were the only ones made.
This was done as the simplest solution to the problem of me not knowing who had them already because for a while they were only given out by Steve in person and I had no record of who received them. Since Steve is so busy as it is I didn’t want to have him making cards for people who already had one (in a few instances it happened anyway… oops.)
So, since you brought it up you’ve been added to the list (because we’re still using this model. Hopefully that will end sometime.)
A new beast for my Steve Argyle collection! Minion#173
This is an Italian copy everybody, which would be “foreign” for me and most of you… but not for Minion #173. We will continue to refer to this group of cards as “non-English.” - Justin
Look what I got in the mail today! After a mailing address goof (sorry about that Justin) I received my manily sailor minion card and some sweet treasure for my binder. I can’t wait to show my friends. Thanks Justin and Steve!!
At least that one got returned to me… some unfortunate few had their mailings vanish! In fact, anyone with minion numbers between 205 and 337 who didn’t receive anything in the mail within the last month should email me! - Justin
Successful trade is successful! I’ll miss my mayael’s aria proof, but I know it is going to a loving home…and that Deathrite shaman proof looks mighty fine in my binder!
That’s right… I traded a Deathrite Shaman artist proof for a Mayael’s Aria artist proof. (They’re the same rarity… don’t hassle me!) - Justin
//Minion 64 reporting in with a new card for my collection. A friend came over yesterday and let me pick out which ones I wanted, as I was unable to attend the draft for Conspiracy and the prerelease for M15. But anyway, this may actually get some use in my Teneb EDH….maybe…
Also apologies for poor picture quality. Taken with my phone and this shot does not do this card justice, sadly.
Well… the photo is fine, it still tells the name of the card s others can go grab one! - Justin
Finally got my minion card and binder candy (after an error on my part)! Thanks Steve. Thank Justin.
Your welcome! - Justin (rocks!)
