  • Should the Planeswalkers I reprint be first gen Liliana Vess, etc or current gen Liliana of the Dark Realms, etc since this is meant to be the start of a story?

  • Thoughts on my cards and suggestions for reprints are welcome.

What is this, community set #7? Is like fall community set season or somerhing
I plan on having all of my sets be dual-community sets.
Three-colored hybrids sounds exciting, but designing more complex three-colored hybrids might be difficult..
Please do not put Wrath of God at mythic. Really. 

Embrace imagination.

The only three that might go in are Lost Graveyard, Painter's Canvas, and an edited version of Fury from the Deep because the uncommon {C}-producing lands are a cycle with graft 1.

This set has been removed from dual-community statis until the release of Gatecrash.  Please PM me if you're interested in helping vlord and me with design and/or development.  Playtesting is scheduled for Magic Workstation when the time comes, and I am considering renaming the set Delta 20?? with the last two digits of the year being 13 or 14 depending on its final release in relation to next 30 June.

I'm just wondering whose bright idea was it to reprint Rofellos. Dude's broken six ways in a format with Pentacle Omen and Primeval Titan.
