Why Are These Called Rulebook Cards?

Original Dungeons & Dragons books, or manuals (also called Rulebooks – hence the name), contained various black-and-white art styles. Wizards tried to emulate those, so each of the 51 cards that got this treatment has an alternate art in that classic style.

Creating the Art-style

However, the cards would look really out of place, if they’d just feature the black-and-white pen-and-ink artwork. So the design team decided to add the parchment background. With the single character focus, the art box seemed rather bland. That’s why they added the color washed background in the art box.

As you might’ve noticed, the color was based on the card’s color identity. Red cards got red background, green ones got green and so on. Multicolored cards ended up with a yellow color wash.

Just Creatures?

Out of the 51 cards, 50 of them are creatures:

  • 18 legendary creatures (they can be Commanders)
  • 32 non-legendary creatures

What’s the deal with the fifty-first card? It’s Mimic! While it’s not technically a creature, it can become a 3/3 Shapeshifter.
