On Silver bordered and/or joke cards (reply):

Also, Rourke's comment about this set being 'un-believable' made me think that is what this set (or the next Un-set Wizards does) should be called: Unbelievable.

Choose two, I think -
• Counter target spell, probably?
• Return target permanent to it's owner's... hand?
• Tap all creatures your opponents control?
• Draw a card, obviously.

Split Second

Target game loses target player. That player then joins a different game. Cast Get Outta Here only if there are three or more players playing a game and two or more games being played.
{t}: Choose two —
• Add {W 1/2} to your mana pool.
• Add {U 1/2} to your mana pool.
• Add {B 1/2}} to your mana pool.
• Add {R 1/2} to your mana pool.
• Add {G 1/2} to your mana pool.

{1}{r}{r}: Play musical chairs with all of your opponents (Have a Judge play the music). Until the beginning of your next upkeep, if a source controlled by the winner of that game would deal damage, it deals double that damage instead. Activate this ability only once per turn and only when you could cast a sorcery.

On Marit Smol:

I forgot they were right back to back. Well, if I'd been plugged in to the gossip to have heard about it, I'm sure I WOULD have been rooting for Marit Lage. That wouldn't be a good choice, because lots of players weren't playing ten years ago, but those who were would have loved it (at least I would). But when they're trying to build up a narrative for players who don't know a lot of lore, the story is almost always going to be the "big obvious" one, whether I want it or not.

(I wish there were more stories where I'm really invested in which goes which way, e.g. battles between planeswalkers where people might legitimately root for either, rather than leaning on "destruction of the plane", but I understand why that doesn't happen so much)

On Marit Smol:

@Jack what were the chances we spend a whole block on one theme, and then beef it by making the next block have the exact same theme? I was on the Marit Lage train only because the alternative was a shitty story. (Not that a surprise Marit Lage return wouldn't also be terrible writing.)

@Vitenka that was last year's summer set

On Marit Smol:

Huh. Yeah, did completely miss all that. That would have been a very cool twist, but what were the chances that wizards would spend two blocks building up a cosmic extra-dimensional horror and then have a plane invaded by a completely unrelated cosmic extradimensional horror?

(I also completely missed the twist of "oh no, emrakul is here as well". I just assumed all three of them appeared together in the first set.)

On Marit Smol:

From context, I assume "Eldritch Moon" to be something MtG related?

On Marit Smol:
On Marit Smol:

I envy everyone who is oblivious enough of the speculation/willful denial during Eldritch Moon pre-spoilers to not have heard of Marit Lage.

On Marit Smol:

Ah, right! Sorry, ML made such an impression on me I forgot people might be missing that half of the explanation.

On Marit Smol:

Knowing "Marit Lage" is thing I was missing.

Given that, sure, it's funny enough. I just lacked the context. I assume jm also.

On Marit Smol:

I did wonder about a land making a token, but it seemed too complicated for a tiny demon :) I wish there was some way of making it more tiny and cute than just being 1/1 but I couldn't think of one.

"So, the whole joke is "1/1 is small"? Not getting it."

I guess? If something's not amusing to other people I probably can't explain why it's amusing to me alas.

Originally Marit Lage was designed. I didn't think of anything of the name at the time. Later on "smol" became internet-speak for "small in a cute way". After that I realised that "lage" looked like a lol-speak deliberate mispelling of "large" the way "smol" was of "small", and designed the corresponding card.

It amused me because I never thought of that when marit lage was printed because I didn't say "smol" back then, but now it's a reinterpretation of marit lage's name I can't unsee once I've seen it.

I didn't think it was funny, but "turning a word that looks like large into a word than looks like small" seemed like the most obvious joke. I guess it wasn't.

On Marit Smol:

Lage >> Smol :: large >> small :: 20/20 >> 1/1

The real question is whether this should not be a token frozen behind a single ice counter.

The land could actually stll be producing mana and wouldn't need to be sacrificed when this itty-bitty demon unfreezes from its ice cube.
