Preparing for the Holidays

Hi friends! Full disclosure, I am going to take a break for the rest of this month. It is the holiday season after all, and I have a whole bunch of personal stuff to take care of. I even almost forgot to wrap this article in time, and had to create the card proxies this morning before running to work! I’m glad I get to leave you with a couple designs before I take some time off though, and I reckon I will probably come back at the end of December for a year wrap up. Now let’s get to the cards, shall we.

Snake SpeakerSnake Speaker is a cute little design that I can’t imagine not being printable.

I was somewhat tempted to make something a lot fancier out of it, but I think it is more elegant in this much lower-impact form. It should be a common by the way.
Snake Speaker would probably only be meaningful in a set with a deathtouch sub-theme.

Other than that nothing much to talk about. The illustration is a little weird but I found it within minutes, and I quite like it after all!

Neverending DelugeNeverending Deluge.
This one is a design I wanted to make for a long time. In case you haven’t noticed, the idea is to make really sure nothing on the board survives -except for indestructible creatures of course.

Neverending Deluge wants to catch the tricky cards usually surviving a “wrath effect”. Creatures leaving tokens behind them, most likely, but also maybe creatures who can regenerate, since those will need to do it twice if they don’t want to die like every body else. This also solves the issue of killing your own Banisher Priest.

Nothing too fancy this week, as you can see! It is something I will strive for in the future, as simple designs are the best ones when they are simple for good reasons – clarity, elegances, efficiency, etc. I wish I had time for flavor text but oh well.

Anyways, like I said I will be taking a break for December, but you can look forward for more articles not that long from now, probably just before the end of the year. Enjoy time with your friends and family, and talk to you all later!
