How to Edit Custom Magic Cards

Today, I'm going to teach you how to use the new Edit Card functionality that is now available with Premium Membership.This latest feature was added to give members an easier way to edit and modify cards based on other feedback from the community or "too-late" typing errors that can sometimes get missed. You'll need the original artwork image for the card, or if you want, replacement artwork to use instead.

While viewing the card you wish to edit, Premium members will see a pencil icon in the action buttons row. Click this icon to upload and crop your artwork.

After finalizing your crop, you will be taken back to the card editor - this time with all of the original card details loaded and waiting to be changed. From there on, edit and update your card as you see fit until you are ready to save.

We should note, there are three small things that cannot be updated through this method: the author of the card, the post date of the card, and the url of the card. These elements are key items for card data, and therefore must remain the same.

So there you have it, a quick look at a new feature to make creating custom magic cards even easier. Thanks for watching and if you enjoyed the tutorial please leave us a comment or share the video. Cheers!


Q. Why do I have to reload my image?
A. We don't have the capacity to store both original images and card images for every card. Having you upload the image allows us to keep costs lower and continue services for the overall community. Also, it makes it much easier to update or re-crop an image if desired.

Q. Will Edit Card ever be a free feature?
A. Because we have guidelines for card content and a limited team of moderators, we don't want to risk any user coming back and adding inappropriate content to cards that have already been through moderation. We also feel like this is worthy of a Premium Feature and rewards members who are able to, and willing to support the site financially.

Q. How do I become a Premium Member?
A. You can sign up for premium features either through our ongoing Patreon campaign, or directly on the site through the store.
