I found some awesome hallway shots of my and @fire-rhapsody’s Rave! Yugioh cosplays from Con Alt Delete (better than my blurry selfies, lol). I miss this con and my Kaiba, but looking at these brings back good memories.
The first pic is from Instagram user twerkquius and the second is from @justlikeswitchblades, thanks guys!
There have been build-around uncommons in sets before, and they're sometimes popular draft archetypes (Spider Spawning is a good example) - if it's an achievable goal in a draft environment, would you ever print an alt win-con card at rare, or is simply being an alt win-con complex and/or powerful enough to make the bump whether it's achievable in draft or not?
If an alt win card was playable in draft, we’d consider putting it at uncommon.
in the GF tarot deck i ordered, a few of the cards have ‘alternate’ versions, which is the same card but with different art depictions. although the alternates all bring emotions and energies i don’t feel with the normal versions, having their own type of energy. my favorite is The Devil and it’s alt.
The Devil is self-enslavement, corruption, indulgence, all the good bad things. but can also be seen as freeing yourself from puritanical restrictions…it depends on the context. the alt Devil card doesn’t have the same energy, so i’ve come to an even better conclusion.
in the deck, Dipper is The Moon (dreams, illusion, deception, creativity, insanity, secrets, subconscious, perception) and Bill is The Devil. i feel The Devil alt. is just like Bipper: a sort of fusion of both energies. Bill isn’t making a deal anymore. he’s in a new vessel and is carrying out disorder. this combination makes a new card altogether: Chaos
i thought of the attributes that could be applied to this ‘Chaos’ card.
it can be stone cold good or bad. absolute unpredictability, lawlessness, and the favor can 50/50 be your way or not. the card doesn’t play favorites.
good attributes: absolute freedom or control. nothing standing in your way in doing something, resisting your fate, everything going according to plan or getting what you want, rightful pride, strength. the destroyer.
bad attributes: being enslaved in your choices, over-indulgence, everything going horribly wrong, madness. overly self-confident, fate taking hold no matter what you do, weakness. the destroyed.
does it feel right? am i missing a certain emotion? tell me what you think.
