Hudsucker Proxy Generator

Generate MtG proxy sheets from mythicspoiler.com & other sites

hudsucker takes a text file specifying a list of MtG cards and generates a set of 3x3 PDF sheets.

Unless otherwise specified, the source images are pulled from mythicspoiler.com.

$ hudsucker cards.txt
./cards01.pdf

Saheeli's Artistry      # Spaces, capitals, and punctuation are fine

# For multiples of the same card, list them multiple times
