I appreciate everyone's proactive approach to this, I think we all benefit from this so I'm really happy about it.

I am in for this...who do I give my coordinates to? :)

I have learned to read! Mailing Tim.

As for a request, really anything is fine...though a foil Karplusan Forest would be swell.
Whoever gets me please sign the card.

Oh and since you mentioned Grixis, thought I should mention a local MTG player added "Grixis" as their middle name and got a Grixis guild tattoo on their arm, that's how much they love the guild. :)

Grixis has a guild symbol?

wtf.

Would like to participate, been out of power and internet for 6 days, since hurricane Sandy hit, so this is the first hearing of the idea, seems fun!

I would love to get something useful and that is altered. Check one of my links in my signature for my decklist and a card that you can alter well or poorly. Cool altered lands are always welcome, or just a neat looking foil land.

Got the list updated with everyone that has posted, we're up to 22 right now. Hopefully we can get 50+ by the time we actually start.

So, I am having a conversation with Ban Ki-moon and Sheldon about the autographed lands papa_funk has donated 40 foil lands to the mix, so everyone should PM him and tell him thanks and also that he should join this program (since he's already involved).

Also there will be a giveaway for the best gift(s) (to encourage people to give), the best will be decided by popular vote and will be voted for the 'coolest' not most expensive, most artistic, etc. Cool will be defined later but it has to do with something that people would play with and when they do it would make them smile, something that screams EDH (so put some thought into it when it comes up). As for the prize packs it will consist of altered art EDH staples and the exact contents will be announced later but here is a sample (these will also be signed by the RC):

Image Image

I have two Sol Rings that I am adding to the mix (art not done, literally waiting on paint to dry) also, as well as probably some other cards that have been collecting dust on my desk for close to a year now.

Oh and BTW for those people that donated a little more than a couple bucks thank you, and I'm ordering more lands for the RC to sign and altering more cards, so its just coming right back around to you and I won't tell you to stop.

The contest doesn't change what I was planning to send, but it is a nice touch.

I am in possession of said lands. Scott will be here the week after Thanksgiving, and then we'll get them back to Gavin at GP Toronto.

What do you mean 'donating'? Do you mean that you're gifting someone an altered art for the exchange, or that you're 'donating' an alter to the prize pool? If you're donating to the prize pool that is very cool of you and would counteract what Celerus is talking about.

Depending on how many people we have there may not be enough for each person to get 5 (one of each type), furthermore I don't think any of them are going to be Unhinged lands, to my knowledge they will be Zendikar and Foil. I am fairly sure there won't be any foil unhinged lands, arabian nights mountains, alpha lands, or anything like that.

Grixis wish: a non-Consecrated Sphinx blue staple

I've developed an odd habit; I never play blue in EDH, so I don't own blue cards, so I never play blue...
