Magic: the Gathering in the UK

Date: Saturday 31st March - 12 noon

Where: Penderel's Oak - High Holborn

 

Concept:  

* Each participator designs 45 Magic cards in Magic Set Editor format

* Send finished cards to sim.okeeffe@gmail.com

* We print them all out, sleeve them up, and shuffle into boosters

* Draft and enjoy!

 

Although there was only four of us who did this last time, many onlookers expressed their interest in being part of the next one.

 

Threads from previous instances:

Things we learnt from the previous attempts and loose rules:

  • No planeswalkers. Having 8 untested planeswalkers in a draft can be pretty lopsided, especially as people tend not to design simple answer cards as they are dull
  • Super power mythic bombs - try and limit yourself to 1, if you desperately need more, let us know and we can try and accommodate them
  • Cards must have art (designer secret - finding lots of art first inspires lots of ideas for cards!) (DeviantArt is a pretty good resource)
  • Designing heavily linear/parasitic cards, as your 45, that all interact with each other is not really going to work if we get 360 cards total. If you want to do something like this then let everyone know so they can either support your theme or veto it mercilessly
  • Having a theme or design goal would be a great way to help tie different peoples 45 cards together. If you have any suggestions please post them

 

EDIT: We have chosen "land matters" as a theme, so try and include a smattering of cards that interact with lands in some way.

Simon - please can you collect the 20 pounds that James owes me from him too.  He of course promised to pay me Saturday where/when he is not attending ... hmm.

Damn you Mills! I knew I shouldn't have fallen for those puppy-dog eyes!

what the hell went on after I left, maybe best I don't know

Completed all my cards and sourced art (the hard bit) will have a final look over and email to Simon tomorrow morning. :)

BTW, if anyone's still to design cards, things that let you have lands ETB during your opponent's turn would be good to help turn on landfall-bonus instants.

Since I had to go in to work early, I've printed mine while nobody was looking.

I have exactly one way to make lands at instant speed, and it's red. Because red is the most interesting colour.

All my cards are either totally broken or horribly underpowered. Probably the latter.

I have Dan's now.

I tried to print mine late last night at the office, but looks like our colour printer isn't working!

I'm not in the office today, so will have another look on Thursday. If still broke may have to ask someone else to try and print mine and Dan's.

73 cards.  68 with art.  I will probably prune some of the cards and save them for another time as mine are more cube than core set in complexity currently.  I do have some 2/2s for 3 though.  No printer here but coming down on Friday and will print when I get there.  It was complaining it was running out of black ink but I hope that's just because it is a cheapo replacement cartridge with no magic chip.

Simon, you don't have to worry about being there on Friday, I've decided to come on Sat.

OK 25 done and 25 to do tonight and will print on friday ! have a feeling that i have only been able to make creatures and not many spells,

I think i have made around 20 creatures out of the 25 I have done so far, I have also seemed to have made a lot of dragons... also seemed to have failed with tribal themes and seemed to have made a lot of token generators....

Getting there and looking forward to sat !

If I'm short a bunch of cards can anyone fill some in for me? Im currently at about 10, and dont have infinite time to sort them out; plus ive been away for the last 4 days so unable to make any. I could get up to 45 but some of them would be super boring.

I do on the other hand have access to a colour printer at home, so just email files if you cant print  them yourselves and I'll do it.

That sounds like a pretty sweet deal. I know I have about 13 extra at the moment, and Tom has a few. I can probably design some more.

If I mail you Dan's for now you can print those and I'll send mine over tomorrow night.
