Magic: the Gathering in the UK

After a little informal discussion I think it's time for You Make the Set 7.

We've done this a few times before. As always anyone is welcome to contribute as much or as little as they'd like.

Saturday October 12th looks like the date for the official draft to me as there is no TGC event and it's before I am off to the US.

I'm a little vague on exactly what You Make the Set means this time around. Here are some options.

  1. Invent some cards, send them to me, I'll print the lot, we show up on October 12th having not really seen each others designs and having not tested and we draft them.
  2. Design a set on Multiverse with a little editing and feedback and tweaking and set mechanics. With a deadline of three weeks it will necessarily be a little rough but something less free-for-all than (1).
  3. Bring together classic Magic cards with some (how many?) new designs of our own to make a sweet set to draft. Evoke meets Landfall meets Blind Seer.

    Additionally, if we are having a theme, I'm not sure which theme we like out of:

    1. Whatever you like/no theme.
    2. Wedges.
    3. Lands.
    4. Top-down Egyptian theme with Sphinxes, Pyramids, Mummies, Jackal-headed creatures, etc.
    5. Some other theme I haven't thought of

    I'm inclined to go with 2 (multiverse) and D (Egyptian) or maybe 3 (classic cards) and C (lands) but what do you think?

I have a huge problem in that my new flat won't have internet until at least next week. So not only can I not get art, I can't send them over to be printed before the deadline! This is going really well so far...

Oh dear. Looks like we might not get this in before I leave. Tuesday 15th might be an alternate date.

I'm getting going with mine, W and U mostly done although art is going to be a problem. I won't be able to make Tuesday however as the missus is back from Africa then I think not being at home will mean a one way trip to the doghouse...

Cube on Saturday instead? 

I might start uploading my cards to multiverse for some critique too, has anyone else put theirs up yet?

DeviantArt is a pretty good resource for card art. You will have to scroll past a ton of pics of topless ladies and badly drawn mega breasted fantasy tropes to find the odd good image, but that may be a bonus point in its favour for some.

As for Multiverse, I hadn't thought of putting stuff up there as I think we were going for a surprise factor on the day. That being said, if you have some cards you are unsure of power level wise I think it might be a good idea to discuss those prior to the day.

Maybe add them to the Lands! or Earth Rise sets for now. Is Earth Rise one of yours Baker?

Earth Rise is my friend Nathan's partner's. I don't think he's using it but let's not trample it just in case. I've created a "Ahmose" ("the moon is born") set to put things in for those that want to share.

As we don't have a date for this event I'm not sure whether to tell everyone to stop. I'm probably going to finish mine just because I'm having fun doing it.

You guys can always do it after I'm gone I suppose.

Mega breasted fantasy trope sounds like a good card name...

I've made around 20 of mine so far. Not great, but I've been stupidly busy recently and not having internet hasn't helped! I might have to do them with a blank art box then draw some stick figures in them!

I have 87 cards complete except art and I don't think I will add many more. Going to try and find some art next.

There is a chance I can be ready by Saturday (or maybe Sunday if that's better). Plus we could always play Saturday AND Tuesday if everything is ready. Watch this space...

Another vote for Sunday, excellent!

I can't do Sunday at all I'm afraid

Definitely can't do Sunday 13th.
