For anyone wondering why I have been so fleeting as of late: I had a creative block for a while leading up to my most recent card, now I am missing my hoard of artwork and concepts.

  • You haven't know real tedium until you have spent an entire 6+ hours trying to decipher dense Latin poetry armed with nothing but an out of date Latin dictionary and at least one million distractions. That is what my day is going to be -- me, Cicero, and a million distractions.

  • People who can’t do basic math should NOT be cashiers. I spent 20 minutes in line at a GameStop waiting for an employee to count out two customers’ change... I nearly got left behind...

      Heh, yeah, I can relate. I was stuck at a Target for half an hour.
  • Alright. I need to take a hiatus. I have my trimester tests in the upcoming week. Not only do I have to study for those, but each class has assigned a week-long project as a portion. So I need to spend minimal time on this. Sorry, but for the next week, yell at me if you see me around.

    All right. So, the Cardsmith version of my I made of my self is Black and White (Orzohv), but I don't usually play that kind of deck. I usually play a White, Black, and Green (Abzan+Dromoka) deck, with a focus on providing all my creatures that have +1/+1 counters on them with additional abilities or benefits. Less usual than that is White, Black, and Red (Mardu+Kholagon), with a penchant for lots of Dashing. Any of these would be good, but I would prefer WBG. Great idea btw.

    All right, another weird question. Do you know the names of Undead, Faiths Guide, and Bigbadbooknerd. I'm making young versions of them, as well as you and me. Thanks.

      Or do you mean it from a more philosophical standpoint? Like who are you, really?
    • Revan
      Revan
      No, but if you want a philosophical answer:
      I want to know the "real" you. The you that is your inner being. The you that strains at you earthly bonds. The you that is "you".
      Nope. Just curious.

    Sorry, cant comment on MTG right now. But this is what Rampage means:
    Rampage means that when this creature is blocked by more than one creature, it gets +X/+X where X is equal to the Rampage value.

      The sardonic necromancer has taken a liking to the unruly fire mage, seeing Chandra as her "delightful walking powder keg".
  • Remember when I said that I was going to pump out the cards I already had planned? Probably not bc nobody ever looks at the activity thing! Point is, I am going to keep these ideas around until it can be used for a contest, then make them.

      The guy is George Orwell, author of 1984 and Animal Farm. This is from 1984, I believe.

      Forge! I know it’s said 7 left for a while now, but hell! If I wait too long and it does go away, then I’d be pissed at myself.

      I plan on getting one of those myself if I land this job at U-Haul Ranshi! Not to mention prizes for my future contests. Mwahaha

      @sorinjace, if you buy the rest, then you have a monopoly!
  • I have realized something: I improvise. When I am told to memorize a speech to present, I remember the jist and speak extemporaneously, I get near perfect English grades on essays when other students planned and I spilled out words artfully. Same is true for my cards; many of the works I am proud of are improvised. Eowyn, and Wandering Archdruid are two examples. So that is what I will do from now on for the most part; improvise and record my products in my precious tome. I am going to finish the pre-planned things then get down to business.

  • In April I'm going to comicon! Turns out the school goes to comicon every year! Best part is: a talented friend who has made amazing costumes in the past said he would make me a costume!

      I have limited it to 4 options. I am currently working on a diet and workout regimen so that I get into good habits if (please dont) my metabolism slows. If I get muscular, t'will be Gideon or Garruk. If not, but I fill out my build then I will be Tezzeret. If none of that happens and I stay relatively shrimpy, my friend assures me that I could pull off Chandra. He also showed me a potential design to make it look like I have fiery hair so that would be cool.
  • I’m getting my new computer today so i will be finally making some real cards tonight!

  • I’m off to boarding school! Wish me luck!

  • I’m at my cousin’s wedding. Try messaging me or communicating with me and if I am by chance somewhere in this barn in the middle of nowhere with connection, it will be an excuse for me to escape awkward interaction!

  • I'm just going to be compiling my ideas for a while.

  • At this point I am no longer writing down all my spells to make that flavor text true, rather it would be really cool to have that whole book filled with stuff! I’d be able to flip through it and look at spells and when they are dated to.

  • Well, I am up to Angel of Eras, so it shouldn't be too long before I will start making cards again. Then again I do need to help pack up the house so that its clean when renters get here... Then a long drive... and then it isn't guaranteed that I will be able to get on when I get home...

    It will be tomorrow afternoon at earliest when I will be making cards again.

      Well, cleaning is mostly, done, but I already packed my tome, so I don't have any of my concepts, or can I write the old ones down there. So I will just meander about for now.
  • Should I use some photos to make some ironic or unglued cards?
    August 2018
  • I am going into a mostly offline mode right now to read through our wonderful encyclopedia to find the effects that I can see myself using. Hopefully I don't pass out. (That thing is getting really long.)

  • Remember earlier today how I said I was just going to spit out those proxies? Me too? Well I am going to just delete the images! F them and I am going to go back to making terrible cards of my own design! XD

      Is that a question as if you cannot actually remember it or...?
  • Remember when I said I had a lot of images? Me too. I am burning through them because most of them are ending up as proxies. So I will just spit all of those out and then get back to genuinely trying to be creative.
