Do the new sentinels have a one way back design? I can't seem to find one. Any help is appreciated!
yeah idt the sentinels have a one way design
on another note
in this picture there is no metalicness around the word sentinels. see the difference here http://cdn.theory11.com/images/640x360/sentinels/Sentinels12.jpg
^this one has the metalicness around the word sentinels.
i just thought it was cool.
Two ways to find out:
1. Turn half the cards upside down and then shuffle them together. Flip through them looking for any change back and forth.
2. Put two cards side by side with the edges touching. One pointing up, one pointing down. Look at the center and cross your eyes until an image locks in place (if you've ever done magic eye pictures its the same thing). It will seem like you are looking at 3 cards now. If the cards are marked or have a one way design the 'middle' card will be distorted in some way. When you do this whatever the tell is for a one way design will pop right out at you.
The Sentinels are indeed one-way, and in my opinion it's a lot more obvious than other t11 decks, like the Guardians or Centurions.
Look closely at the hilts of the swords, then flip the deck around and look again.
Not all one-way designs are obvious enough to pass the test. Propagandas don't really work, and I still can't find how TH9 Circle backs are one-way..
Sorry I couldn't quite work out how to explain it that well the first time. For the cross eyed test when you have that 'middle card' locked in, look all over the card. Anything that is solid is symmetrical and anything that looks to be half there isn't. Half there would be like how if you put your finger in front of your eye and look at something else your finger looks to be there but is also see through. You may need to be in a well lit area to see some of the differences when doing this comparison.
For Propagandas I know the dots around the side stars are one way, the side fin line on the bombs are one way, the blades or whatever it is in the center are one way, the 'shading' behind the grenades. Theres probably smaller stuff too. None of it is blatantly obvious though. I'm not sure about circle backs I haven't really looked at them.
FWIW If you have a sharpie to match the color of your deck you can make any deck one way...
