This has been an ongoing issue with their QA. Just stack something heavy on them for a few days.
Yes, mine were curled horribly.
Even if they were to replace them, the replacements would still curl as well.
For what it’s worth. If you’re cards aren’t curled right out of the pack you can double sleeve them so they don’t curl.
Adjusting the relative humidity they're stored in is the solution. Add humidity if the foil side is outside the curve. Remove humidity if the foil side is inside the curve.
Double sleeving should help reduce the rate they re-curl afterwards, but the only permanent solution is climate control.
The only advice that I’ve seen that will fix the curling issue is: stop buying the product.
It’s common. To fix it, hold the CEO of WOTC hostage.
Mine are about twice as bad as that and yes it happens in every bundle
Mine had no curl at all, and to try keeping them that way I put them back to back inside a single sleeve if I'm not using them.
I actually started having troubles with my foils drying out and after trying to hydrate them and flatten them out with a fire safe, I started running them over the edge of the table with a playmat over it to prevent scratching. Just a few runs like that and they actually become super malleable and straighten out entirely. I doubt this works with humid foils, but I have done this to foils now and I can leave them out in the open even and after several weeks they remain flat.
Yup, all of the last few sets are unplayable.
Grab a Stephen King novel like It or Dark tower and put it on top of the card on a flat surface. It will straighten out.
Honestly not that bad
Yes and the shredder
Curled Foils? \*Gasp\*
jokes aside, I've heard controlling the humidity of the room your cards are in helps a ton. A buddy of mine keeps his rec room/basement area at a lower humidity and it has a significant effect on his foil cube.
