I know I promised a new contest but I have been wrapped up in my work that I hard had the time to choose the theme of the contest. You can still vote in my old blog for the group.
In the meantime, and as well as myself have finally come to the realization that it is time to construct a custom Core set.
The Sigma Set 2014 will be our custom Core set that we can use for future block constructions and side-sets.
This will be a hugely collaborative project and we would like some input on the foundation.
Like the old Core sets, there is a theme; a beginner's approach to the game. We need to figure out a foundation plan that we can all agree on.
Shark brought up a schematic we could follow and it seems logical to follow the style of past Core sets. Here is what he told me:
"Well to start, I suggest a 16 commons, 10 uncommons, 6 rares, 3 mythics per colors with about 10 for artifacts and multicolored/hybrid. I'm unsure about allowing plansewalkers but, if we do we could use them as plot devices for other sets."
I personally believe this schematic will work but input is entirely welcome. This isn't the final foundation work; this is the first draft.
Also, part of the foundation would be mechanics and keywords. We can use old ones and maybe come up with a new one for this set in particular.
Let's put on our hard-hets and let us start!
