Keep your Magic: The Gathering cards in this 3D printed ‘butterfly case’

At rAge 2016 we saw dozens of different card deck cases for myriad games, but we think the coolest one in this design for a Magic: The Gathering deck.

As you may have guessed by the pictures, this isn’t a boring box. Instead, the top is adorned with an opening mechanism which splits the top lid apart, hence the name ‘butterfly case’. The exposed gear work also gives the box a delightfully steampunk atmosphere.

Speaking of design, you may be wondering why we billed this as a case for Magic: The Gathering when it could hold any kind of card. Well, aside from the creator titling it as such, there’s a raised ‘MTG’ logo on the side of it. You could scrape that off in your preferred design software, but you could just ignore it. Lord knows I used Magic: The Gathering accessories all the time when I played the Pokémon card game.

Now for the bad news: this isn’t free: it can be downloaded off of 3D design marketplace Pinshape for $4.55 (R63). That’s a really good price for something this ornate. Even with the cost of printing it will likely be cheaper than a lot of the cases we saw at rAge.
