I haven't posted in a while, I know, but I've got something exciting going forward. I've teamed up with Bradley Rose to make a podcast about Magic design. If you haven't listened yet, do so! (And give us a good rating!) I will be posting these every week as a supplement to the podcast so you, the listeners, can look at what happened while you are listening (or after.)
This week, we had Jay Treat on, of goblinartisans.com. He is a smart dude, and he had a lot of cool stuff to say about magic design.
This week's challenges (send your submissions to email@example.com):
Host/Augment: A vertical cycle that must use only one or two lines of rules text. A vertical cycle, if you don't know, is three (or four if you go mythic) cards of different rarites that do something similar. The bloodfire cycle is an example.
challenge: Design a story spotlight card that features two of the
created planeswalkers from last week. Use one old, and one new. You can mix and match any way that you like.
Here are some mockups of those planeswalkers, if you missed them before. Just a warning I edited some of their abilites from the original versions to clean them up and make them work a little better.
