Alt Art "Masterpiece" Proxies!



  • Great stuff! I especially like the Tundra.

    Isn't the Arcbound Ravager taken from a medieval painting of hell? Which would be appropriate since the card was born from Satan's asshole.



  • I loved all of these except for Jace the Mind Sculptor. I prefer my Jace to be immune to plowshares and the like 🙂



  • I'm interested in ordering if Brass Man is OK with it. Ordering through a medium other than this site is fine as well. All of those cards look amazing, but I think the wording on some of them (eg Jace) could be made to look more old school. @BandsWithOthers would you be open to suggestions on the wording?



  • @thewhitedragon69 Read the 2nd-to-last sentence.



  • @dr-j Got it. In that case, innocent blood, liliana, or diabolic edict are the hurt, lol 😛



  • @Thewhitedragon69 @Nower1990 I'm happy to take suggestions but have a complete image file, and the text is rather small already 🙂 Minor edits might work, but I think we come pretty close with Jace.

    And again. When we play, especially with any playtest/proxies we use the oracle text for all cards and rulings no matter what they say. I think the humor in Jace is just that it's one bazillion tiny words.

    My feeling on what makes cards old school wording wise is the non-standard vocabulary, random pronouns, etc. The old cards feel a lot more like the the game designer is more or less talking to you, explaining each card as a unique effect, rather than anticipating that 25 years later the exact same effects would be reprinted, repeated and honed down into the most efficient, clinical effect. So to that I end I think Jace accomplishes the mission. We workshopped him a good bit in the original thread where I posted some of these ideas. Almost made him a wall!

    I feel like the only other particularly non-old-school element is that I used the generic mana symbol in the lands, rather than "one colorless mana" spelled out. But I like the way it looked and it seemed a little funky and non-standard, like things would have been at the time.

    Anyhow, that all said, feedback is welcome! And if people are interested I can try to get a link where you can snag some.



  • @bandswithothers I'm just joking. Good alters all the way.



  • @thewhitedragon69 It's no worries! I'm just curious to know what you might change. Since it's all sort of a goof anyway 🙂



  • @bandswithothers very sweet. I assume all the art is public domain ? Not a lawyer, just wondering.

    I would be interested in a deck depending on price.



  • @cleverpseudonym With the exception of Chalice of the Voice, yes it's public domain. I just did a run for myself, but I'd probably find another piece of art for chalice if others were interested, so as not to offend whoever currently owns all of the Python stuff.

    Thanks for the kudos though! It sounds like there might be a few people who are interested so I'll poke desultorily at the "how to make it so other people can buy this" option. 🙂



  • Depending on price/shipping I'm interested as well:-)
