After taking inventory, so to speak, of some of our top-selling playmats, I couldn’t help but notice that we have a TON of MTG-inspired designs featured on the site. At first, I wasn’t really too surprised. But, after coming across so many designs (some of which are my personal favorites) that are somehow based on or inspired by Magic in one way or another I thought, “This would be cool to share with our audience in a blog post/listicle.” My fellow Inked Gaming teammates thought so, too. So, here I am!
In what follows, you’ll find five or six designs that are inspired by MTG and have really struck a chord with our most loyal followers/customers. I’m assuming that if you’re a frequent reader of our blogs, you’re probably a frequent visitor of our website as well, in which case some of these designs will look familiar. However, if you’re new, then this post is going to be double the fun!
I won’t waste any more time or try to bore you with unnecessary build-up. Let’s get to the good stuff! If you see something that catches your eye and doesn’t let go, be sure to click the link to that particular product/art that I’ve attached to each one.
Beyond the Machina’s Did You Know Salt design is easily one of our most popular designs to date, especially as a playmat, which is why I wanted to start the list with it! We love a design with flavor and personality, but this one takes it to a whole other level. And according to the numbers, our most loyal customers and fellow MTG enthusiasts have found that flavor to be both salty (for their opponents) and rather satisfying (for themselves). So, if your game has been a little bland lately, this playmat design might be the remedy!
José Fabricio Vargas puts his own creative and unique spin on the well-known Enchantment card that MTG players have come to know so well by now. The use of great colors and such close attention to detail actually makes this one of my personal favorites to look at.
There’s just something so cool, dark, and haunting about Kevin Mckenna’s Vigor design that keeps me coming back for a closer look. It’s kind of spooky and yet peaceful at the same time. I can’t really put my finger on it, no pun intended, but every time I look at it I get this design, I get a calming feeling, although I’m not sure if that’s what was intended by the artist.
Every time I go looking through the playmat designs on our site, my eyes always happen to stop whenever I happen to come across this vibrant Playmat design from MTG LGBT, which is also the name of the design itself. I always have a thing for designs that use a lot of colors (like that of a rainbow). I’m also a fan of the ever-so-popular Lotus if you know what I mean. This particular design also has quite a couple of different versions that are equally as impressive. You can see those by clicking here...and here!
Thickness: 1/16 of an inch

I hope you enjoyed looking through these brilliant MTG-inspired playmats as much as I did when I first compiled the list. Again, if something piqued your interest, be sure to click the links above each listing or perhaps one of the links that I left in the text. Also, I’d like to get your opinions on some of my picks as well. What did you think? Are there any that you can picture being a part of your collection? Was there one that really stuck out to you or perhaps you feel didn’t belong? Let me know in the comments below.
Who knows, if this post gets some good feedback, maybe we can keep it going with other products and designs. Like, instead of playmats, we can do our best MTG-inspired dice bags, mat bags, mousepads, etc. Sounds like an idea worth exploring, but we’ll see how things go here first.
