Plot
If the Gatewatch is like the Justice League, then wouldn't it only be a matter of time for Wizards to make an Injustice League too?

A block constructed where various archetypes are represented and balanced: aggro, control, midrange, combo, tempo (and possibly prison and land destruction).

Both of them are probably capable of traversing planes so this could be a battle that is raging on in many planes at the same time across the multiverse.

Block or set with no cards using standard frames. I.e. all cards are either split, flip, double-face, leveler, planeswalker, or full image (e.g. basic lands and vanillas.)

Down-top set/block with the main idea being to apply/justify the "Great Noncreature Type Update". That is, to add flavorful ("tribal") subtypes for instants, sorceries, and possibly enchantments.

Why does WotC consider dice mechanics something not serious? I.E. being relegated to an "Un-" set instead of a real MTG set. Most player's have them, and I don't think it's any less convenient than attempting to find counters and tokens for things. Seems like it has potential.

Modal spells now use bullets. Choose one —
• That's really cool!
• I don't care.
• What? That's ridiculous!

Which keyword would you remove from the evergreen keywords?
What keyword was received the most poorly but has the most potential?

In English there has been a push for a singular gender-neutral pronoun. If one is "officially" added to English how do you think it would alter the format of how cards are phrased? If a "new" pronoun, like xe is added, would the cards be "he, she, or xe discards..."? If they were to also become a singular gender-neutral pronoun would that just become the default "that they controls"? Alternatively pronouns could probably be avoided entirely with by just referencing a person as player "unless that player pays..."

been moving away from it myself, mainly because if my sets ever get played it sure won't be by newbies. might as well give myself license to ratchet up the complexity

do you guys design as if you're a WOTC employee, or do you do it for yourselves/your friends?

M15 will introduce slight modifications to the card frames. However I don't suggest this site follow along because their slim borders make it very hard to discern a card's color, especially on a monitor screen. Keep the borders solid and highly contrasted from the text box.

Snow as a theme is quite popuar despite being very parasitic, because it is evocative.
One weakness of snow-themes: Including Snow Basic Lands has no cost.

In a surprising turn of events NNWO is instated in a fictional parallel universe. It is decided that all previously evergreen keyword mechanics that now only are redflagged are demoted to deciduous and need replacements that are truely simple.

Plane
Pursuant to article Community Set / Universe > Planeswalker, whereby such a discussion regarding how walking the planes was desired in the main game. Hereby resides the unofficial meta-discourse of the possible creation of such a new card type to be introduced into the normal game.

In response of lackluster legendary theme in Kamigawa block, could the theme have fared better if Legends appeared in a special sheet, ala Time Spiral Timeshifted cards, Innistrad DFC cards, or Dragon's Maze lands sheet?

Some cardsets are explicitly community-designed.
All public cardsets are implicitly inviting comment.
But sometimes we want to explicitly ask for help from the community for personal cardsets. How do we do that?

Land
I want a term that describes playing a card, but not casting it.
It obviously should make sense with lands, but preferable would be versatile enough to use with hypothetical custom card types that aren't using the stack either.
