Heroes of the Realm
Heroes of the Realm is a custom made series of black-bordered celebration cards, recognizable by a special "Heroes of the Realm" card back. These cards are specifically created for Wizards of the Coast in very limited numbers, and handed out by the execs to some of their employees as a token of appreciation. Each card includes the name of the employee who receives the card. Since these cards don't have the regular card back, the cards aren't legal in any format.
A list of Heroes of the Realm cards is below.
There are four copies in existence for each one of these:
- Chandra, Gremlin Wrangler — 2016 Magic: The Gathering Reward.
- Dungeon Master — 2016 Dungeons & Dragons Reward.
- Nira, Hellkite Duelist — 2016 Duel Masters Reward.
- Diabolical Salvation — 
- Inzerva, Master of Insights — 
- M'Odo, the Gnarled Oracle — 2017 Magic: The Gathering Online Reward.
