Making a Mark




[Wizards of the Coast safe]

Every choice we make in designing a set influences how it will play, but some of them make larger impacts than others. Foremost among them are the choices we make surrounding what I’ll call ‘marquee mechanics,’ that is, ones that dictate the shapes of the environments they appear in. Prime examples include Landfall in Zendikar and Infect in Scars of Mirrodin.

So before we return to our exploration of mechanical space that Tesla might use soon, let’s pin down what it is thatwe’re looking for.

CCDD 032515—Commit (Kavu Dragon & Virulent Necrosis)

Cool Card Design of the Day
3/25/2015 - Commit is a new iteration on the idea I was pursuing with incant and predict over a year ago; Easing the mana burden of a spell in exchange for broadcasting your intention to cast it next turn.

CCDD 032415—Hunting Tower

Cool Card Design of the Day
3/24/2015 - I wanted to see how simple you could make a borderpost, and whether that design would have any value. Hunting Tower is definitely simpler and cleaner. It doesn't fix your mana nearly as well, but it does swap adeptly between being a 23rd/24th Forest and humble mana acceleration.
