Revelen’s Light – MTG Altered Art

We’re a husband and wife pair of card alterists, painting altered art on trading cards. (Almost exclusively Magic: The Gathering, but we’re always open to suggestion.) We do get a bit backlogged at times, but we’re pretty much always open for new commissions!

You can email us about alters (or other stuff) at –


Pricing varies quite a bit from alter to alter. Since every alter can be completely unique, it’s hard to give an exact price without details. But, if you’d like to drop us a note about your plans, we can go from there.


In case you want to contact us about an alter, feel free to drop us a note at:

Shipping Info

We’re located in Maine, USA. Generally, I use USPS packages to ship cards, but I’m happy to use other shipping options if you’d prefer.

How long does it take?

It really depends. I pretty much always have a solid line-up of commissions going at any given time, so delays can vary, but I try not to get scheduled out too much more than a few months. For simple, single card commissions, I can sometimes squeeze them in sooner. When you contact us about alters, I’ll let you know about how much of a wait there is!

Do you take large commissions?

Yup! There’s no real limit on the size of your order, but depending on what other commissions we have going, a full EDH deck may end up taking a back seat to someone who only wants one or two simple alters. Large orders take a while, so sometimes there’s a bit of an extra wait.

Payment Options

When we decide to on the details of an alter, we can just link a simple Paypal invoice to your Paypal-associated email. If you don’t have Paypal, we can get you an invoice that works with credit cards and assorted other methods.

Rules on Alter Legality

Are alters legal in competitive play? Technically yes, but it’s really all up to the judge.┬áThe upshot is that, with most alters, you’re probably fine at FNM, I wouldn’t bring them to the Pro-Tour, for everything else, check with the head judge first! Here are the official rules:

Latest DCI Policy on Tournament Legality:
Effective July 1, 2009
Section 3.3 Authorized Cards:

Artistic modifications are acceptable in sanctioned tournaments, provided that the modifications do not make the card art unrecognizable, contain substantial strategic advice, or contain offensive images. Artistic modifications also may not obstruct or change the mana cost or name of the card.

The Head Judge is the final authority on acceptable cards for a tournament
