M:TG.COM - A World Sculpted from Metal

03-23-11 - Creating a Metal World With a Fantasy Feel - Mirrodin Week - Savor the Flavor - Doug Beyer

Some rules to follow to keep the sci-fi feel out of the metal world of Mirrodin.

Letter of the Week (Doug's response in the link above):

Dear Doug Beyer,
Regarding your article "Six Secrets Behind the Sets":

There's an art gap I'm hoping you can help bridge regarding a little pest that's been bugging me (pun intended).

When I first saw Signal Pest it struck me how really familiar it looked, so I looked through my old Mirrodin cards and viola! there it was: Thermal Navigator.

Since it's smaller, like it accidentally fell into a Darksteel Forge and kept a small bit of its flight ability, is Signal Pest possible a pre-form to Thermal Navigator, or is this just a different type of the same species?

Are there more of them? If so, what nets are used to catch them?
