It's good to hear Mark Gottlieb's maniacal cackling again Question for the designers: with all the trouble you had coming up with good mechanics, don't you feel you're running out of design space for new keyworded mechanics?Some of these look very far-fetched and not reusable at all. I would assume a mechanic is only worth keywording if you plan to use it again.

More than once a high class buffet has started with the mark of Phyrexia upon it. Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.
It's been said before, but for all that Return to Ravnica was pretty neat, the city flavor wasn't as strong as I expected, especially in Selesnya. For a world-city setting there shouldn't be much nature left, so I'd expect more cards like Selesnya Sagittars or Trophy Hunter, and playing up the more communal aspects of Selesnya rather than the nature-loving part. Use teams of humans/elves/etc. for the larger power & toughnesses to keep with the "civilized" flavor, not random beasts. The beasts can be kept mostly to Gruul, the sole truly nature-friendly faction.Anyway, I'm glad that Gatecrash may remedy this deficit somewhat.
Actual best thing I have ever done.
