A Magical Beginning!

I have decided on a new series of posts to do. It’s going to be a bit different than my typical, as I usually tend towards the “word” side of the spectrum. I’m going to be tagging it #MagicMonday. Here’s what inspired it and what to expect.

Last year Scent of a Gamer starting doing posts where he showcased artwork from various Magic: The Gathering cards and wrote a sentence or two about the illustrator or some fact about it. Not only was it interesting but it was nice to look at as well. It got me thinking about Magic and particularly how I’d gotten my start with the 4th Edition and how the images from the game just fascinated me along with the game itself back in ’95. Images from that time have imprinted themselves on my mind and shaped me in ways I can’t fully describe.

So I have decided to start showcasing the cards from the 4th Edition of Magic the Gathering. I’m not going to track down the artwork but just show the card. I will make the picture clickable for the larger version so you can see it much easier. I’m not going to write about it in the post. It will be a wordless post except for the title, which will be the card name and ” – MTG 4th Edition”. I plan on going through all 378 of them alphabetically. If I do have something to say about the card, I’ll leave a comment. It’s going to take a long time at just twice a month but since I doubt anyone is in any hurry, just sit back, look at the pretty picture (or not so pretty as is the case for quite a few) and enjoy the silence. It’s probably about the only time I WILL be quiet for a post ๐Ÿ˜‰
