Restarting, to an Extent…

Sway of StarsI’m Starting over.

Just like 11th Edition Magic 2010. I’m going to take posts from my past that I like and create all new content.  For a while I was thinking of just leaving this blog but I love the game too much.  I want to voice my opinion and luckily there are people who want to read it.  Of course some of them come here in search of 11th Edition Spoilers (Hint: Basic Land!), but some of them are legitimate people in search of debate and magic design.

MaRo (Mark Rosewater, he’s kind of a big deal) always said that “restrictions always breeds creativity.”  And it’s true, but talking about Magic design when you don’t see any of your cards printed can only go so far.  I will still talk about Magic design a good deal of the time, have my conversations with MaRo, and even speculate what could be in Base Sets (Every year now!).  Continue reading “Restarting, to an Extent…”

Introduction Post

I’ve posted this as my first post, though it’s on a page as well (Hint: it’s called About M:tG Color Pie). I’ll have some posts up here soon, once I get back from my vacation. Yes, I know I started a new blog before I leave for a week… [More on page]

Urza's Saga Catalog, by BerrtI’ve posted this as my first post, though it’s on a page as well (Hint: it’s called About M:tG Color Pie). I’ll have some posts up here soon, once I get back from my vacation. Yes, I know I started a new blog before I leave for a week. I’ll have plenty of time to think about topics and get outlines for them. If you design your own sets, or anything to that effect, I would love for you to write on this page as well. My e-mail is at the bottom if you want to contact me.

The RSS Feed is to the right; please sign up for it. It will tell you when I’ve (or anyone else) has posted on here.

And now, here’s the page, so you don’t have to click on the link to the right:


DamnationThis is a blog about designing Magic: the Gathering cards. If you don’t know what Magic cards are, I suggest you visit this site.

You will not find rumors here (MTGSalvation should be your source). Want help with your limited game? Maybe constructed? Who won what with what type of deck? Brainburst, Starcitygames, ManaDeckVortex, and even Magicthegathering.com might all be good places to go.

The reason for this site is to talk about the design aspect of Magic. What is Wizards doing right, what should we be expecting from them in the future? All of those things will be covered right here. Why? Because like everyone on the internet, they think they can do as good of a job, or better, than the professionals (don’t believe me, search YouTube for stupid stunts). Am I better than the design team headed up by Mark Rosewater? We’ll see…

Magic: The Gathering is owned by Wizards of the Coast which is owned by Hasbro. Any art used on this site is property of its owner (most likely WotC). If they are upset that I’m using it, a nice e-mail telling me to take it down, I will (MtGColorPie_@_Gmail_Dot_com). The Color Pie pic was found on the Magic site.
