9th Edition was released on July 29, 2005, and contained 359 cards. Russian cards were
introduced and printed with black borders. Traditional Chinese had been cut between Mirrodin and Darksteel. It shouldn't see new printings
for the next five years. The mana cost had been shifted downwards between Darksteel and Fifth Dawn.
Regarding the corner cutting, 9th Edition is chaotic: Whereas French and Russian theme decks contain front cut cards as formerly, Italian and German cards are back cut. Spanish cards probably had two different booster print runs. USA-printed languages are weird
