"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.
"Unfortunately it looks like I can't make the 12th. Some diary congestion and actual failure by me to check that I was free that day!
I will still design my cards and sent them through, about 45 complete so far (with art). Hopefully we can get…"
"Nice, I can see that working. You did have a mechanic from the aborted Wedges that might fit:
Gather the Lost - 5W Sorcery
Put a 1/1 white spirit creature token with flying onto the battlefield for each exiled creature card you own.
Recall - 5B (You…"
"That is a fair point Kieran, so instead of Egypt/Britain/Space Cucumbers, we just need to decide on a mechanical theme. Some options are:
1) Lands 2) Tribal
3) Colour matters
4) Exiled matters
5) Hand matters
These are things I think haven't…"
"Well I would hope we choose one of British/Egyptian mythology. I guess there is some crossover regarding British explorers and then the British occupation of Egypt from the beginning of the 20th century, but I don't really think they interact…"
"Also I'll just repost the learnings from the previous "secret design" YMtS we did:
No planeswalkers. Having 8 untested planeswalkers in a draft can be pretty lopsided, especially as people tend not to design simple answer cards as…"
"Hmm tough choices.
Perhaps a buddy system could work?
Each designer pairs up with another and that way they can bounce ideas and hopefully kill overpowered nonsense, whilst retaining some surprise as they won't know the other 75% of the set on…"
"When you say British history, are you referring to Colonialism?
East India Trading Company / Boer War / etc..
Or are you more thinking Renaissance
Tudors / Stuarts / War of the Roses type of stuff?

"Well maybe just prune down to all the non wedge related cards and see if there is anything there.
I think Wedges are cool, and there is a lot of design space, but I'm not they actually work that well as a limited format. I don't remember…"
Also bad because my work productivity will go down sharply.
Given the short deadline I think we want as restrictive a set of criteria as we can get, so I'm happy to go with Egyptian theme.
Or maybe it is time for Core Set…"
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
