Listener-Created Movie Cards Part 2

MVV Woman in Red

You know, we dorks have talked about a lot of things on our show over the years.  Most of the time there’s positive feedback, words of appreciation, and the like.  But sometimes we do episodes that just resonate with people.  Episode 326 – At the Movies with The Mana Pool seems to be one of them, because people have sent us an entire mess of cards relating to it.

We spent that episode looking at some of our favorite movies and trying to figure out what kind of cards we could get out of them.  Some of our listeners decided to help us out by sending in some of their created cards.  Keep in mind that some of these are word-for-word what we came up with on the show, while others were designed more by the card’s creator.  I’m not sure which is which, that’s what the link to the episode up above is for!

Mark van Velzen sent us an amazing 54 cards (holy crap!) like the Woman in Red over there on the right.  But you’re not reading this, you’re looking at her anyway aren’t you?

This is the second and final part of these cards.  You should check out Part 1 if you haven’t yet, it has the cards for Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Fight Club, and a pair of iconic horror movie bad guys!

Listener-Created Movie Cards Part 1

MVV - Vigo

You know, we dorks have talked about a lot of things on our show over the years.  Most of the time there’s positive feedback, words of appreciation, and the like.  But sometimes we do episodes that just resonate with people.  Episode 326 – At the Movies with The Mana Pool seems to be one of them, because people have sent us an entire mess of cards relating to it.

We spent that episode looking at some of our favorite movies and trying to figure out what kind of cards we could get out of them.  Some of our listeners decided to help us out by sending in some of their created cards.  Keep in mind that some of these are word-for-word what we came up with on the show, while others were designed more by the card’s creator.  I’m not sure which is which, that’s what the link to the episode up above is for!

Mark van Velzen sent us an amazing 54 cards (holy crap!) like Vigo over there on the right.  We are, in fact, like the buzzing of flies to him.

I’ve organized them a bit and put them here for all to see, hope everyone enjoys as much as I did!

Episode 272 – Story Circles for Everyone! (On the Show)

Story Circle (Tenth Edition)

Remember the planeswalkers that the dorks made for each other a couple episodes ago?  Yeah?  Well this episode we’re doing Story Circles to craft a deck around each of those dorky planeswalkers!  Pretty awesome huh?

Of course, that’s not all we’re up to.  Oh no.  Brian rambles on about Modern just a bit before we get going (weird I know).  We talk for a couple more minutes about the newest You Make the Card vote (at the time it was a runoff between land and enchantment).

At the end, we have another amazing rush of gratitude for a listener who, for reasons that continue to baffle us, sent us some stuff.  And I’m talking good stuff too.  Like damn.  Check out the altered Nether Shadow that he sent to Chewie and tell us that’s not awesome:

Episode 270 – Do You (or Have You) Kid?

Cockatrice

Wow, is this really the first episode we’ve recorded since GP Charlotte?  In that case, we’ll spend a few minutes looking back at the GP.  We also discuss the whole Cockatrice thing for a couple minutes.  Brian points out that what you should be doing is don’t be moving.  There’s fake new babies, a list of accomplishments (Mike is a failure, sadly) and the admission that we’re all tired.  Like really tired.

But then we get into Dirk’s episode topic!  Each dork get a planeswalker created for them by the other three dorks!  We take personality, play style, and whatever else we can think of into account when doing this.  Then we look at the ‘walker from a flavor perspective, trying to figure out who their planeswalker allies and enemies would be, and figure out what planes they might want to frequent.  It’s a lot of fun and actually, we ended up with some pretty good ones.   Check them out, keeping in mind that all costs and loyalties and whatnot are being left up to the developers to iron out: Continue reading »

Brian’s Old School Custom Set – The Rest

Brian Other

In the fall of 2004 between Mirrodin block and Kamigawa block, Brian tried his hand at set design with a set of 150 cards.  Other than updating to use modern templating and keywords, these are exactly as Brian created them.  It’s a look back at Brian’s take on old school set design.  Chewie and Mike added some commentary just for good measure. You can also read the White, Blue, Black, Red, and Green cards.  We hope you enjoy this trip back as much as we do!

Finally, we’ve got the artifact, multicolor, and land cards.  Each and every artifact (except Goblin Prototype, who is just weird) is essentially based around a pre-existing card, not necessarily an artifact.  Can you guess all of them?  The common  land cards are probably too good; New Benalia is proof of that.  Nevertheless, scry always had a lot of potential to me in a limited setting, and I thought the lands were a way to give each player access to library manipulation regardless of color.  I was always curious as to where they would fit in a draft pick order.  Frozen Plane was another attempt at a card with constructed applications.  All of the multicolor cards were fun to design, but the rares were especially so.  Spirit of Rage is particularly vicious; good thing I’ve never been attacked by one.  Hope you enjoyed the set.  Let me know what you think of it, and thanks for reading!
