M:TG.COM - M12 from the Inside, Part 2

07-27-11 - Flavor and Design of Magic 2012 Cards - Part 2 / Creative Team - Savor the Flavor - Doug Beyer


As part of the Magic 2012 design team, our flavor author Doug Beyer gives us both design and flavor comments on select individual cards from M12. These include:


Letter of the Week:
Dear Doug Beyer,
How does the Creative team work, and how much influence do you have over the card-designing-process?
Do you go over each card in a new set and find creative flaws, or are you completely indifferent to what the card actually does and only write art descriptions and come up with names? Do you fight with the design teams over how mechanics work, or do you not?
Thank you for your answer
-- Isak W.


Certainly my favorite part of this article was the talk about the 3/3 zone under the Gorehorn Minotaurs section.
