“This is where your story ends,” Scaeva, king of Scintala said, his blade above the betrayer Alaric’s head. The battle had raged for days. The two commanders stood on the edge of a ravine. “Do it, then,” Alaric said. “But know it is my name the bards will sing in ages to come while you are forgotten, drowned in the blood of this field.” Scaeva sneered, bringing his enchanted blade down with a crimson streak of fire as a dragon roared behind him. The dragon had the mane of a lion and picked Alaric up. “Took you long enough,” he said. “I had not yet decided to aid you, human,” said Rowan, the lion-maned dragon. “But your plea for peace convinced me. Let us end this bloody war.”Buy now
Alaric never wanted to be king. But when the people called on him to oversee the peace-making efforts, he said yes. Five years gone, and Alaric still yearned for battle. Perhaps that is why he let the thieves take him from his bed in the night. He must not have thought they would start by taking his hands. Left with bleeding stumps atop a funeral pyre of jagged dragon bone, he impaled his stumps with two sword-like bones. He let half a decade of fury loose, emerging through flames and smoke, smiling as he cut his captors down, a demon of fiery fury.Buy now
Alaric the mortal had perished a lifetime ago and yet he found himself on a battlefield in a strange age. He felt the pull of the Dustcrafter who summoned him, urging him to fight. Not that he needed much convincing. His flesh had scarred, becoming black and flaming. His eyes were pools of smoke. His arms had been replaced with sword-like dragon bones. His wicked smile burst in flames as he sliced soldiers, a whirlwind of demonic death on the battlefield until the lion-maned dragon Rowan interceded. "Stop!" the dragon said. "This is not who you are, Alaric. Remember!" But Alaric could not, and so the two one-time friends met in combat, a battle neither could win.Buy now

The main difference between Dual Matte Card Sleeves and Classic Card Sleeves is the shuffle feel. Dual Matte card sleeves will have a smoother shuffle feel while decks sleeved with Classic Card sleeves give more resistance when shuffling and more force is required. The card backs on Dual Matte sleeves will not reflect much light but the classic sleeves will, this means that the card backs on classic sleeves will appear more shiny or glossy.
Dual Matte sleeves have a more defined texture than Brushed sleeves. Compared to Brushed sleeves, Dual Matte sleeves have a slightly more firm shuffle feel.
