Was having a discussion as to the best art for Brainstorm in the chat of https://www.twitch.tv/unarmedoracle and Cam mentioned replacing the runes in the Mercadian Masques version with the thinking emoji. 🤔 🤔 🤔
I was trying to mechanically capture Megumin’s ability in the context of Magic and I think I might have stumbled upon a new type of cost. Do you keep the card face-up and keep pinging for 1? Or do you go for one big ping and never get to ping again?
so when Mark started to pitch Zendikar (Landsapalooza, as he said he called it in a recent ask), it wasn’t an instant hit with the rest of R&D. He had to sell it. DFCs also had naysayers within the company–change the card back? Are you nuts?!
But these were both hugely successful. Obviously DFCs are a bigger shift than a mechanical focus on lands, but they are both pretty unprecedented things Magic hadn’t done before.
Consider for a moment your wildest dream. The thing Magic would never do but which would be so cool. If you were Mark Rosewater and had this idea, you’d have to spend weeks convincing others just to give it a try. What is it?
I thought it’d be fun to celebrate the game’s birthday by making promos of my Magicwatch cards. Look at that pretty art.
Honestly this game has meant a lot to me and has been a great comfort in an otherwise rough year. Honestly it’s so nice for there to finally be a Blizz game I can bond with other’s over, and I feel like it’s made me closer to my friends in general. The characters are wonderful and it’s the first ever game to really bring out the competitive streak in me. Thanks Blizz, you really hit it out of the park with this one. So then, here’s to another year!
