An Open Invitation to the Great Designer Search Contestants

by Dredd77

Welcome, aspiring designers!

Thanks to Eric “Mr. Suitcase” McCormick (@thewachman), we’ve been getting some attention from the Great Designer Search 2 on account of the fact that the latest design challenge involves designing an intro pack!

As it happens, in the past month we’ve written several columns on what makes good and bad intro decks for Quiet Speculation that might be worth a read:

Three Deadly Shortcomings

Five Reasons Why Intro Packs Matter

Five Elements of the Best Precon Decks

Additionally, we have reviewed the Intro Packs for a number of sets, including all sets in the current Standard environment (we’re in the midst of Worldwake presently). If you feel our analysis might offer some insight, feel free to browse the archives!

Finally, we are happy to offer aid in fine-tuning your deck(s) prior to submission by running your deck through a “precon gauntlet” and reporting our findings directly to you. Deck stress testing will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and can be tailored to what you’re looking for. Send us a message on Twitter (@ErtaisLament) and we can discuss this option further.

We’re proud to be a part of the Magic community, and delighted to be of any help we can for this worthy challenge!

    I’d already looked at one of those articles, nicely written. This is a really cool offer, I wish I were still in the competition to take advantage of it!
