Do you still do birthday trivia? If so can you tell me something about the development of full art lands?
Full art lands were first pitched by Chris Rush (Magic illustrator most famous for Black Lotus and the mana symbols). No one wanted to do them as they thought players wouldn’t like them.
Chris told me about them on a plane ride to Gen Con and I ended up putting them in Unglued as I was looking for quirky things to do.
The full art lands were very popular. I did them again in Unhinged pushing the art even more to the edge. Again, they were very popular.
We then put them in Zendikar because if it’s land theme. Again beloved. We did them in Battle for Zendikar. Beloved.
We put a single cycle in Amonkhet. I predict they will be well liked. They look awesome.
