In mere moments, Iron Smith @Faiths_Guide
will be pitted against our challenger, who thirsts to discover our secret ingredient, and enter the heat of battle here in smithing stadium.
Today's challenger is... @AustinSmith!@AustinSmith
is a college student in Texas pursuing a career in web development with a special interest in Magic: The Gathering. He is using this site as a means of developing a portfolio of sorts to present my skills in game development. He is sure to be a worthy opponent for the Iron Smith today.
But there is one more ingredient in this battle; a secret ingredient! The theme on which our smiths will offer their succulent Variations. Today's secret ingredient is...Epic music intensifiesTRIBAL!
I want to see your best designs based upon the theme of Tribal. You will be picking one of 4 tribes and 3 designs relating to that tribe. One card will be designed with Legacy or Modern
in mind. Whether you make a Modern or Legacy card depends on the tribe, make sure to read their descriptions. The second will be designed with Commander
in mind. It does not have to be legendary
, but it should be playable in the Commander format. Your third card can be whatever you like.
Which 4 tribes will you be using, might you ask? Zombies
Zombies have been a force in magic since the very beginning. Unfortunately, these guys haven't made it to tournament tables outside of Standard. I think it's high time we change that. I want to see your best design for a zombie for ModernFaeries
Faeries were once one of the most feared tribal decks in magic. Back in the days of the extended format, Faeries were a force to be reckoned with, and they Dominated standard thanks to Bitterblossom. They were so good, in fact, that Bitterblossom was banned at the inception of Modern. I think we should return the Fae to their dominance. No, lets take them to a place they have never visited- LegacySpirits
For the number of times spirits have been showcased as a tribe in a block, it is very strange that they don't have a tier deck in Commander or an Eternal Format. I think it's time we change that. Make a Modern
This is an MTGCardsmith contest about tribal. You really expect the Squirrels of @Corwinnn
to not be on the list of choices? Since most of the Squirrels printed up until this point were either from the Pre-Modern age of Magic or Unsets, lets make our Eternal Squirrel playable in Legacy
Smiths, you will have until February 17th, 2018 at 11:59 P.M.
to create your best 3 original, new card designs
relating to this theme. So now MTGCardsmith, with an open heart and an empty deckbox, I say unto you in the words of my uncle: 'Allez Cardsmithing!'
