CCDD 092816—Dismantle Magic

Cool Card Design of the Day
9/28/2016 - Countermagic week continues. The vast majority of counters let you pay less than your opponent to counter their spell. Spell Blast costs more. That's a good thing, but it's so much worse than other options, who would consider it (except against a deck with important 0- or 1-cc spells)?

Is this not fair?

CCDD 092716—Challenge Expertise

Cool Card Design of the Day
9/27/2016 - Countermagic week continues. Challenge Expertise counters any spell you don't have a full playset of, or else acts like a blue Cranial Extraction to prevent further castings of the spell. Top-down from the name.

Tesla: Come into Play - Playtest, Prerelease, and the Future of Tesla

Hi everybody. This weekend, something big happened: Kaladesh came out! That doesn't mean our project is over, though we're certainly nearing the end. This week, I'm going to discuss what it means for the future of our project, and also compare my experiences with the prerelease and with playtesting Tesla.

CCDD 092616—Exceed Your Grasp

Cool Card Design of the Day
9/26/2016 - Its countermagic week on Goblin Artisans. Cancel/Counterspell are such clean and effective cards, but are they fun for both players? It's nice when there's a cat and mouse game where either you're playing around a specific kind of counter, or you've got a counter that you need to optimize based on your opponent's deck/plays.

Weekend Art Challenge 09232016 -- Lozanox

Weekend Art Challenge
Greetings, Artisans! Go ahead and click through to see this weekend's art and the design requirements for your submission, due Monday morning. Every submission warrants feedback, and everyone is encouraged to give feedback. You may use that feedback to revise your submission any number of times, though if there's any ambiguity as to what your final submission is, I'll make my best guess when doing the renders.
