On Uncommon Wish:

What Link is referring to is this line:

"(A card is uncommon if it is uncommon in the set it is printed in.)"

Which I just cut. Magic 20XX was only ever intended to be drafted among a group of friends, so there are a number of cards that were a bit -un, this one one of them. That reminder text was more to stop arguments about cards that were reprinted in Magic 20XX with different commonalities, and whether or not they counted as uncommons. For confusion sake, I decided to let the cards do what they said they did, and reflected that in the reminder text.

But you're right, Link, that isn't the way normal Magic works. And while this card would never be printed, it should probably conform to the the rules as we know them. Edited, and thank you.

The reminder text on this is inaccurate as reminder text, isn't it? Formats that care about rarity don't care what rarity a specific printing holds, as long as another printing had the rarity that matters. That's why you can play your M13 Rancor in Pauper.

On Lim-Dûl, Pawn of Bolas:
on 2013-09-22 04:56:23 by jmgariepy:

I like the way you think, Alex. Changed first ability to 0, changed the second to -2 and upped starting loyalty to 6, so you have to work to kill Lim-Dul early.

On Lim-Dûl, Pawn of Bolas:
on 2013-09-20 11:48:09 by Alex:

I like the idea of a PW with a 0 ability that scales off itself, like Marrow-Gnawer's effect. But this design makes me wonder why the +1 actually grants loyalty at all.

Maybe you could decide that a theme of Nicol Bolas's planeswalker pawns is that they should only go down in loyalty, like Sarkhan the Mad. Make the abilities cost [0], [-1] and [0] in their current order (and maybe rearrange them).

(Yes, okay, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas breaks that pattern before it starts. We could decree that he's an odd exception.)

On Lim-Dûl, Pawn of Bolas:
on 2013-09-20 07:54:40 by jmgariepy:

Part of the "Who could still be kicking around as a Planeswalker" cycle, started with Serra, Resplendant and continuing into Feroz, Warden of Ulgrotha. Lim-Dûl is pushing that theme. Obviously, he was never a planeswalker in any of the stories. My plan was to explain it away as Leshrac intentionally holding his pawn back from his destiny and trapping the spark within him. Nicol Bolas, however, recognizes a time travelling Lim-Dûl spark, though, and decides that Lim-Dûl not only shows the promise of power, but he's already shown that being a peon is in his nature, so he unburies Lim-Dûl's spark.

I know, at the time, I was trying to make the 'cheapest' planeswaker I could (less color commitment than original Jace. It doesn't hurt that this guy can cost the equivalent of {b} on round 3, if you want.) The ultimate isn't really an ultimate so much as a way to go out of control if left unchecked. I wonder if it resonates. Ulitmates might need to feel ultimate to feel 'right'.

On Feroz, Warden of Ulgrotha:
on 2013-07-29 11:20:12 by jmgariepy:

Ah! I missed Didgeridoo! Well, I guess that settles it.

Sorry, Vitenka. The art is somewhere, but unfortunately, I'm going off of my notes, and not my card set. If I had it, I'd post it.

On Feroz, Warden of Ulgrotha:
on 2013-07-29 07:59:02 by Vitenka:

Also, it seem cruel for you to give these comments and not link the art.

On Feroz, Warden of Ulgrotha:
on 2013-07-29 07:20:46 by SadisticMystic:

Canonically, the answer re: Feroz appears to be settled by, of all cards, Didgeridoo.

On Feroz, Warden of Ulgrotha:

Part of the "Which past planeswalkers could still be around" cycle in Magic 20XX. If Serra, Resplendant is fair game, then her lover Feroz must be too.

I got a general positive vibe from the card. The idea working hard to lock all creatures out of the game appealed to a few people. It's unfair... but ultimates, by their nature, are unfair.

The artwork on this card, however, got a few... responses. When I was shopping for stock art, I found a picture of blue wizard doing just what Feroz seems to do. The wizard, however, was a pretty woman. I did some thinking, and did some research. Any story that had Feroz in it was pre-revision, so mentions of Feroz as a 'he' from before 1997 don't count. And none of the flavor text in Homelands hints at Feroz's gender... people just assumed Feroz is male by virtue of being Serra's lover. But if there's any character in Magic that's a candidate lesbian, it's probably Serra. I mean, have you seen her realm? She's the reason why all angels in Magic are women by default. At the very least, it's obvious that she prefers the company of women.

So I made Feroz a female, and a number of people took me to task on it. I explained my position, but they didn't like it. They just always though of Feroz as being male. I got to admit, the name doesn't sound very feminine. But outside of that, I'm pretty sure all the whiners were all sticks in the mud.

Finally, a note on costs. I don't have my original costs for planeswalker loyalty (who knows why), so I kind of have to guess. I guess this is right? I'm willing to listen to suggestions.

On Serra, Resplendant:

Ha! Yes it does. :)
