You Make the Card Returns!
posted 2013-03-11 by Reuben Bresler
Ethan Fleischer, designer for Magic R&D, announced the return of the popular "You Make the Card 4" event on DailyMTG this week! As Ethan said in his article:
"Three times in the past, we've allowed the Magic community to come together to collectively design a Magic card in a process called "You Make the Card." These were tremendously popular, a lot of fun, and resulted in some seriously cool Magic cards. People keep asking us, "Whatever happened to those days? When are we going to have another You Make the Card?" Finally, the clamoring voices became too much to resist. For Magic's 20th anniversary, You Make the Card returns today!
You Make the Card is the way that you, the Magic community, can work together to design a Magic card. I'll be along on the journey, facilitating things. You all will vote on each aspect of the card until we have the final version of it (or at least a digital image thereof). Then comes the long wait while we physically produce the set in which the card will appear. The months will feel like months. Then, each of you will have the opportunity to open a copy of the card you helped make in a booster pack. Let me tell you from personal experience: that is a very satisfying thing to do indeed."
Previous You Make the Cards (YMTCs) include Forgotten Ancient, Crucible of Worlds, and Vanish into Memory.
To vote on what you'd like to see the next YMTC and to see the whole article, read Ethan Fleischer's article. The poll for the first round of voting (card type) will be open until 9 a.m. Pacific on Friday.
