okay, Eberron and others pushed to the side again, I've got a better idea: Warcraft

stretching a little to have 5 factions, Alliance, Horde, Night Elves, Scourge, and Burning Legion

Eberron 2/2 

Show thread

yup, gave up already

brain: what else can I possibly adapt that's less complicated than 12-14 noble houses

brain: what about transformers

me: how do I do 5 colors?

brain: leave out green and do a wedge and a shard, Grixis for Decepticons and Mardu for Autobots.

me: representing transforming is already there with the transform mechanic

brain: no, use morph to represent them being robots in disguise

me: ok I'm bored I'll give up and look for something else

found public domain art (some cases tweaked) for basic lands, and got a set symbol that's not bad, now I guess for some top-down design

getting the itch for set design and using youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHH as a guide, first the creativity part, creating or adapting a setting to be the basis

I like the D&D setting Eberron, and its Dragonmarked Houses are very similar to Ravnica guilds, but there's ~12-14 of them, which doesn't divide evenly into mtg colors.

There's the historical Five Nations, which sounds like a starting place.

oh no, my local friend who shares the design and development and rules interactions bug as me shot down some of my decisions

he's a real real stickler for the rules and following systems and examples really closely

i think my idea of "when Goblin Orator enters the battlefield sacrifice it unless you sustain a belch for at least 500ms" doesn't need to be shot down quite so fast

oh no I've gotten interested in designing an entire set of custom cards for cube

Show thread

wanting to make custom tribal cards but only with cute animals associated with mtg colors
green - squirrel
black - rat
white - rabbit (normally cat, and rabbit traditionally green, but I'm me)
blue - otter?
red - fox?

custom semi-serious singleton cube design card 

oh no I've gotten interested in building a cube

from scratch I mean, not my Gatecrash retail draft simulating cube

sudden thought, mana ramp for u/r 

like this

sounds like a blue instant that counters target spell and if that card would go into the graveyard exile it instead

what do you think

no prizes :(

idea: weekly contest where I post an image with no context and people submit custom mtg cards based around the art and everybody gets something cool for participating

problem: I have no cool things to easily give away :(
