Seems Good Magic Blog

It's the prerelease weekend for Vintage Masters and I dove right into two drafts with completely polar opposite results.  It looks like it's going to be a very fun format if you can open money, otherwise you may end up with a second mortgage.  I have a lot to learn about this format, and I hope to "Master" it pretty soon.  Some of the strategies seem readily apparent, Goblins, White Weenie, etc., but others may be deeper than they appear, For example: Storm...

Hey there friends. I haven't put up content the last few days, and I apologize for that. I've been in the process of moving, which is always tedious and exhausting, even when it's within the same city. I'm in a temporary spot right now, and will be moving again within the next couple months (ideally). I'll definitely have some more content up for you soon. I don't have much more to report other than I'm tired. Talk to you later.

Hey gang, I'm going to be moving out of my place at the end of the month, which means the SeemsGoodMagic headquarters are going to be moving as well. These next couple weeks are going to be a little hectic since I have to uproot about five years worth of belongings, but I'll try not to let it affect my content output. You're going to be seeing some new surroundings for the podcast. I hope everyone is enjoying the Journey into Nyx drafts. So far, I've found the full block format to be very...

I did a prerelease today, and was pretty happy with my pool! You can see both me and Jake's deck here.  I ended up doing pretty bad overall, but I think the deck was fine.  Just bad draws.  I hope everyone had a fun experience.  I was really pleased with how Constellation played, as well as Brain Maggot and Eidolon of Blossoms, and I'm curious if anybody else had any similar experiences with those cards....

It's been a little while, so I'm going to start talking about some more details of the board game I'm making. If you didn't know I was making a board game, let me run through some quick things about it: it's one to four player, it's fully cooperative, it's a deckbuilding card game, it's high fantasy, it has similar elements and is sort of a hybrid form of Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering, it's going to have six missions and then a final boss...

Hey, It's been a little while since I've talked about the board game I'm designing, so I thought an update was in order. If you're not familiar with what I'm working on, I was interviewed for a web series where I give more information about the game in general.  You can see the interview here. Before the last two weeks, the last few months had been stagnant and frustrating. I had communicated with artists,...

I finally got around to drafting a Chromanticore deck, you can see it here.  The deck was a lot of fun to play, and I plan on trying to make that deck work everytime I see him now.  No spoilers, but let's just say he makes a few in-game appearances.  I've finally come up with a good system for acquiring art for my boardgame, and it involves Jake and I who have zero...

Well, believe it or not I already wrote this blog, but the power went out in my house right before I finished, so lemme explain what's going on. No, this blog is not titled about the game company Blizzard, but the blizzard I'm currently smack dab in the middle of in good ol' Rochester MN. We're expected to get about a foot of snow, and they've coined some term called Thundersnow, which on one hand reeks of 80s glamrock, and on the other sounds like a horrifying armaggedon. Let's see if I can...

Hey, I got a chance to sit down with Chelsee Jean and her web series "the Local Experiment" to talk about my board game "Project Nexus". If you're interested in hearing me talk about the details of it, tune into our episode here.  I really enjoyed our chat, and the chance to get a little bit more exposure for the game.  This was filmed a little while ago, and to date I'm still working...

A new set in Theros block is arriving, and it's spoiler season. The anticipation of seeing spoilers and discovering new mechanics is arguably more fun than sitting down and actually playing them, because you don't always know right away what's going to be good and what's going to be bad. So far, we've recorded the last couple Mortarpods spending a lot of time discussing new card's power levels, and have been a little unimpressed with the new gods (sans Xenagos) and a...
