Which Sleeves

Gear forum

What sleeves would you guys recommend as the best sleeves(no double sleeving is happening here)?

And also what color do you think would fit better for a Edh Bolas discard deck?

Dragon shield has worked very well, comet (or something like that) has been decent but I haven't had them for very long.

KMC/Dragon shield are both good imo ... Reguadless of brand name I HIGHLY recommend Matt backings to help with shuffling/reduce sticking.

Tolarian Community College's The Professor has done a review of every sleeve ever basically. Top ones from him are Dragon Shield Matte and Ultra Pro Eclipse. I've used both and like both.

I use Eclipse as it's the more affordable option available to me. I've never been disappointed.

Eclipse sleeves and Hyper Mats feel better to me. I like the slightly more rugged texture on the back. The Dragon Shield Matte's are also slightly bigger too which I find to be nuisance and it creates a little bit more of an opening at the card, but is probably easier to work with if you plan on double sleeving.

I personally like the smaller and rougher textures. Easier to shuffle and replay.

Ah! Eclipse! Can't think why I thought it was something like comet.

I dislike eclipse becuse the fronts are foggy looking and you can't see the cards as well

Eclipse is less durable and fogs up easier than Dragon Shield Matte sleeves. Use dragons instead. They're great in pretty much every regard.

I always use Ultra Pro Eclipses, they’re great (especially since they now come in 100 packs)

Just started using ultra pro eclipses and I love them. Dragon shield mattes are good too.

I have enjoyed the Dragonshield Art Matte sleeves, which have great shuffle feel and the art has not peeled off despite a lot of abuse and shuffling in my commander deck.

Hey guys, I'm planning on purchasing sleeves. I haven't purchased Dragon Shields and / or Eclipse before. Does Dragon Shields and Eclipse comes with a few extra sleeves based on what is stated on package or does it contain exactly what is stated on the package?

I love my dragonshield mattes. I've dropped my glossy sleeves so many timrs just cause of how slippery they are.
