A set of cards from the Magic: the Gathering trading card game (printed by Wizards of the Coast) using themes and ideas from the British Broadcasting Corporation television show Doctor Who and its spinoffs in television and other media.

On The Oncoming Storm (reply):

This set sort of stalled for a while. I'm going to try rebuilding from the commons up.

First thing I'm doing is getting rid of gestalt and entwine. Gestalt is a really tribal mechanic, and since this isn't a tribal set, it doesn't fit. Entwine somewhat works, but it feels tacked on (it is). I need some new mechanics that fit the flavor of a time travel world. Also, a mechanic that represents the Doctor going around saving innocent people from monster would be nice. I would love to hear suggestions, because I can't think of anything.

In the second draft, I'm going to try to keep the complexity and power at reasonable levels. I don't feel that I went too high power-wise, but complexity was definitely through the roof. Who likes making vanilla creatures anyway?

I'm also going to include more of the Doctor's companions as legendary creatures. I don't know why I thought having only Rory, Jack, and "Mickey" was a good idea. I also have no idea how Cthulhu got in here.

Search your library for a land card and put it onto the battlefield tapped. Then shuffle.
“Lots of planets have a North!” — The Doctor, “Rose”
Planeswalker – Caan
+1: Put a 2/2 colorless Dalek artifact creature token onto the battlefield.
-1: Search your library for a Dalek card, reveal it, and put it in your hand. Then shuffle.

Creature – Giant Scout
When Pyrovillian Scout enters the battlefield, each player may sacrifice a land. Each player who does searches their library for a basic land card, puts it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffles.
Legendary Creature – Demon
Whenever Abaddon, the Devourer deals combat damage to a player, that player reveals their hand and exiles all nonland cards from it. For each card exiled this way, search that player’s library for all cards with the same name and exile them. Then that player shuffles.

On Time Eater:

Has the old problem that you technically have to keep adding the counter even once its past the point of any sanity (assuming you get past the fourth). But eh, it's a rare, implementation is allowed to be a bit janky.

I kind of like how it blows itself up, though.

On Nocturn:


And yes it does — the copyright line must be "™ & © 2015 Wizards of the Coast", verbatim.

On Nocturn:

Doesn't need to. Both I and the BBC also hold copywrite to parts of the card. But since you're looking that closely at the copywrite line, also note the date. :P

On Nocturn:

Copyright text needs to credit Wizards of the Coast LLC.

On Nocturn:

Green gets a handful of intimidate creatures. Intimidate is primary in red and black and secondary in green. E.g. Bellowing Tanglewurm.

On Nocturn:

Pretty! Seems unusual to give green intimidate instead of trample, though.

On Broken Horologe:

I actually love this artwork. Nice card too. ;)

On Preservation Vat:

I haven't made any cards from this season yet, which is really more of a reflection of where the show is going. It's all about interpersonal relationships, not cool monsters or adventures.
