Seems Good Magic Blog

99 problems but an attacker ain't one.  Hey guys, thanks for continuing to sub the youtube page and support my various endeavors.  I really do appreciate all the feedback I've been getting and the community that has constantly grown these last couple years.  I'm still hard at work on this boardgame project and I would love if any of you would reach out with any artwork.  The theme of the game's initial campaign is humans vs. goblins.  The game is high...

Jake and I are in the midst of working on a brand new boardgame, which I mentioned in the previous blog. I want to get into a few more of the specifics of the game to give you a better idea of why it's such a time sink, and why I haven't been posting as many drafts in the last few days. First of all, I've been doing remarkably bad in M14. So bad in fact that I think I'm going to do swiss drafts for the remainder. I've expended too much money, and I'm convinced that I...

Hey folks, Morgan and I wrapped up the last Mortarpod over the weekend and there was a lot of positive feedback for that, so thank you. Some people felt that I talked over her a little too much, but I assure you all it wasn't intentional. I'm just that talkative when it comes to Magic stuff. Plus I'm always paranoid about dead air, so I always wanna keep things poppin' and talking. I wanted to plug Morgan's blog so you all can get a chance to see more of what she enjoys...

Here is the full visual spoiler for Kingdoms of Corithan.  You can view larger images for these cards here .  I'd love to hear card critiques, so please feel free to leave some comments or contact me at mortarpod@seemsgoodmagic.com.  We're also looking for creative card ideas for the next two sets in this...

The M14 grind has begun for me.  I appreciate all the comments and criticisms you guys have given me so far.  I'm totally down with any that aren't intentionally douchey, so keep 'em comin.  Going back to a core set after Return to Ravnica block feels pretty damn refreshing.  It was getting really difficult at the end of the RtR environment to pick a winning strategy without drafting to the Gatecrash pack, which ultimately left a bad taste in my mouth....

M14 is gonna come online in just a few more days, and I'd like to take this opportunity to reflect on Return to Ravnica block limited and my overall impressions.  Both Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash drafted on their own were a blast the whole way through.  I never got burned out on either of those and it took me a long time to figure out why I was getting burned out on full block, but not the individual sets.  When Dragon's Maze first came online, everybody...

In the last Mortarpod episode, Jake and I spoiled the mechanics that are going to be in our first ever seemsgoodmagic special set, Kingdoms of Corithan.  I'll briefly outline how each one works:

Detonate permanent (whenever a permanent enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice this permanent, if you do destroy that permanent) - Now keep in mind, Detonate usually has a more narrow type of permanents that it's able to affect.  For example, we have...

I'm still hard at work making my Ebay store comply with new policies, and still managing to post new videos and content, and I hope it's enough to satisfy everybody.  I'm gonna toss a couple spoilers for the new planeswalkers up and briefly talk about them.  So far:

You might be wondering why I haven't been as consistent with blog posts.  I'm in the process of completely revamping my Ebay store due to some policy changes.  This is taking up an enormous amount of my time (and sanity), so bear with me until I get through the bulk of it.  Ideally this won't take much longer than a month.  In the meantime, I hope you've gotten a chance to check out Tristan's standard Reanimator videos.  Tristan joined us in...
