  • Could you review The Realist Playmats? He sells custom mats and claims to be better than inked. Thanks for reading prof!

  • The legion playmats seem to be a good option to be used as art work to put on display in the case of wall art or for decoration on a dinner table.

  • 5:11 – I get it, but its not like they're supposed to me magnetized.
    ooh, wait, that would be awesome!

  • well prices here have always been the same 20 for the base 35 for the 90×90 & 125 for the ultra size long table version wich is for like 3 matches in one go

  • Anyway we can get an update on playmats and quality of life products? Just getting into the game and would just like some nice basic art that's affordable and most importantly durable.

  • The cloth artwork fabric of my playmat is separating from the rest of the mat, I could not find a thread with a clear solution/fix for this. Does anyone know how to repair this?

  • Inked has stitched edging as an option now. Can you do a video looking at that?

  • Hi, thanks for this enlightening video, I really enjoyed watching it. At around 3:30 you show the official playmats with Ancestral Recall and Mox Sapphire artwork. Where can I get those exact playmats? I cannot find them on the Original Magic Art website. Via Google I find a lot of fake products, but I want a quality mat for which the artist gets his share. A link to the correct site would be much appreciated, thanks! P.S. I'm looking for original art playmats, not re-imaginings of Moxen or the like.

  • My DS mat catches all the time :(. Looking at obtaining a new one from inked or ultra pro. Just need to decide on the art.

  • My dragon shield one doesn't curl. But I DID buy it at my LGS where they put the playmat in a thick long sheet of plastic to keep it flat until purchase. We will see in time if it rolls.

  • Really weired – I have my blue dragon shield mat for maaaany years now. I fold it, I roll it, I wash it… no curling ever.

  • You missed an option prof, i found inked playmats to be too expensive, especially with shipping from the usa.
    There is a seller on ebay that provides the service of printing any custom art on a playmat for 15 euros and free shipping, ive been using mine for over a year now and i can say that quality and materials are pretty much identical to a standard ultra pro mat, with the exact same rubber backing.

    Posted July 5, 2020
  • Just checkin to make sure i should buy an ultra pro mat thanks prof

  • Thank you prof for reviewing the Legion felt playmat. I made the mistake of purchasing that mat long ago, and I too found it to be of poor quality.

    Posted July 5, 2020
  • Will/have you reviewed Gamematz brand playmats? I'm pretty sure I've seen all your mat review vids and haven't seen you critique them yet.

  • For $40-50 they ask for a basic playmat here, I prefer to clear the damn table before play ¬¬"

  • InkedPlaymats is the best, nothing beats their quality and the ability to custom pick whatever Magic artwork you want on it; I always go with Inked for my playmat needs.
