    Changes to the Card Frame (Waste Not and Wall of Fire M15)

    Post by Jordan, Lich Lord on Mon Jan 06, 2014 5:40 am




    Rares and Mythics will have an oval holo thing. The font has been changed, and the borders have been decreased by a small amount to allow more space.

    The bottom of each card is black now.

    All in all, I'd say this is nice, allows more text on cards.

    Well.... eh.

    All I got from this is a barely noticeable border change and a junk rare in M15.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the change, it just doesn't seem to do much. Still looks very elegant though and it's not like it's worse than before.

    MtG players are usually scared of changes, but they end up adapting.

    I personally like the diamond of Rares and Mythics, it adds another special touch to them.

    And thinner card frame is a great addition!

    Hmm, interesting news. Some thoughts.

    - A holofoil stamp is a clever idea. Stops counterfeiting, and is good unobtrusive design.
    - Waste Not's flavour text is gross. At least stick in a full stop.
    - New font's alright. It's just a slightly more geometric version of Matrix Bold. But, seriously, that F is going to annoy me all the time now. I hope there aren't other weird, decorated letters like that. Also, typical of them to call their font Beleren.
    - Borders: thumbs up. It's a little bold and new for me, but it's pretty gorgeous stuff. Modernised.

    Time for me to completely change up my custom template.

    After sleeping on it, I really really like the al black on the bottom of the card Smile Makes them look sleek or something

    It's not symmetrical though, so OCD MtG players might be in trouble.

    It is the same thing for me. However, that is more fun than making actual cards.

    You're talking about horizontal symmetry, right? Otherwise, it is symmetrical. It kind of reminds me of planeswalker frames because of how it looks. But still bothersome with symmetry, I have to agree with you on that.

    Seeing this gif makes me like the changes. The cards look more... "magical" to me.

    It's a slight zoom with a bit of a border change.

    I like it.

    Also take note of the change of the font in the name of the card. But that was also previously mentioned.


    The Mana Cost and Type - Subtype are going to be higher. The text in the Rules/Flavor area is bigger, and the textbox is as well.

    The P/T Box is smaller in length by about 10-15 pixels. 

    And the border is more rounded like the corners when it means the card.

    Actually, I am having fun redoing my template.

    So, besides the F in the card name, it's a better frame.

    Ok then.

    Yeah, what the heck is with the F? Only thing I have the slightest problem with.

    I like the F, it adds to the medieval feel that MtG always had for me.

    Originally the Font used was Matrix Bold. They changed the font for something that was unique with it being edgy but still readable. They changed the font to a font called Beleren.

    I know that part, but the F just looks....different then the rest of the font.

    The "W" as well, but take into account the capitals and non-capital letters.
