2014-03-26 03:34:25: jmgariepy created the card Arabian // Nights

Circeus just made Alpha // Beta a few days ago, and mentioned it was an attempt to get every Magic set on a split card. Meanwhile, amuesum just made Arabian Nights. It seemed a shame that it didn't end up a split card, to follow up Circeus' joke, so I made one of those.

I'm no fan of explaining the joke, but if you didn't get it: An 'Arabian' is a type of horse, and 'Nights' are two copies of the first half of Night // Day going off. For what it's worth, I did think to make the second half be 'Knights', and put two 2/2 White Knight tokens into play. ..

actually i made both alpha // beta and arabian nights. alpha / beta is the same set hence a single card. though in hindsight, a double-faced card would be more fitting. other cards aren't obligated to be split cards.

Unfortunately this doesn't make sense as a split card name, since the set's not named "Arabian and Nights."

@amuseum: Whoops, sorry about that. I gots confoozled.

@Link: Agreed. But Alpha // Beta didn't follow the convention, either. I assume some day the and/or convention will be dropped... though, I guess it will take a while to go through all the relevant choices.

Back at @amuseum: I almost liked going Split for as long as one could go, though I admit, this is pretty much the cap without stretching. My next idea was to do 'Unlimited // Antiquities', 'The Dark // Legends' 'Revised // Chronicles' and 'Fallen // Empires', since that seems the best way to match up those sets on split cards. But you're probably right. I might be going far over the top on one theme.
