MTGN Anonymous Blog

One of the projects that I have wanted to do for awhile is to create a set of cards based on the collectible card game, Magic the Gathering. Yes, I am a nerd---thanks for noticing. Tonight, I was just not in the mood to do any of the reading for my classes, nor was I in the mood to attempt to write something serious. So I figured it would be as good as a time to start messing around with this project. Besides, we have been given such good material to mock over the last couple of weeks. Therefore, I present without further ado: Anonymous Blog. It is NOT a real Magic the Gathering card; and if it was, it would be banned from play (just like some of us would like to see it banned in real life). Anonymous Blog is an artifact that costs zero mana to bring into play (just like most of the blogs I am mocking). Tapping it adds a black, red, blue and green mana to the target's player [Order] manapool---hey, I said it would be banned if it was an actual MTG card. In the back of my mind, I have a couple of other cards that are going to interact with Anonymous Blog (yes, more mocking is coming)---it is more broken than it appears at first (just like most of the actual banned and restricted MTG cards). As always, if you think that I am mocking you, ask yourself why...and note that I am an equal opportunity offender---wait long enourgh and everyone will get mocked.

ROFL! I love the creativity here. :-)

... and the quote. How complete you've made the mock card. What would you call this MTG card series?

I have yet to come up with a good name for this series.

I loved doing the quote, though I will admit that I had to think about it overnight to figure out how to do it properly (art-wise, that is).
