BlitzenMagic : Mise!

[Eesh. I tried to tweak the time by a minute so it wouldn’t post at a weird number… and end up posting this.  Sorry for stacking posts!]

There’s still 6 or 7 more rounds of my Blitzen prizes.  I’ll be sad to see them end.  The blogosphere is filled with wildly beautiful characters!

For those who don’t immediately recognize the card designs, or perhaps even the title (though Magic slang is frightfully colloquial) — I’ve decided to make everyone their own Magic: the Gathering card complete with their own image and flavor text.  It is your prize for using the super secret magic word like #Blitzen warriors!

If you still have no idea what I’m talking about, you can read up on Magic over at Wikipedia: here.  It’s a wondrously enchanting card game played by millions.

You can read about the Blitzen frenzy that inspired these prizes on my post: here.


Disclaimers, written with full respect to copyright legalities, the reality of geek cred, and the importance of feelings: 
To Magic:  You are notorious for protecting your copyright– so these are BlitzenMagic the Bloggathering cards, of course.  Entirely different!  But seriously, please don’t sue me: my deck would not a full game make.

To the hardcore Magic fans:  All are from the rare golden Rarasaur deck, as you can see.  Other than that, I took liberties with many other aspects to make it symbolic of the time.  I’ll also be posting these under random Magic slang that have no meaning in association with the cards.   And yes, everyone is Blitzenbonded for ability, and a creature.   Please don’t roast me by the flame of Magic blasphemy.

To participants of the BlitzenFrenzy: After these first four, the remaining will be posted with no rhyme or reason in regards to groupings.  Please don’t read any meaning into the grouped postings.  Also, these were made with love and the funny type of sunshine that makes it look like the light is snowing.  In other words, they’re supposed to make you feel good and show the world how much I appreciate you– if you don’t feel it, I will happily take yours down.

Phew! Disclaimers done, let’s party!

  1. Wow, I love mine rara! Superpowers are awesome and super breath is even better (as long as it smells magical!) I’ve been waiting all day with anticipation and you didn’t disappoint! Big hugs!


    1. Phew! 😀 I’m glad you like your card… it was one of the first I did since I started on the ones I knew best… and then just uploaded them in random order of file size or somesuch… but yay! 🙂 Hugs right back, Jackie! 🙂


    1. Exceeded your crazy budget? Nah, there’s there limit on crazy here, haha! 🙂 Thanks for popping around, John, we miss you muchly when you’re away. Rawr!


  2. Love it!!!!!!! Very poetic indeed, I’m smiling at my card right now. (Yay!) I can’t wait to visit all of the other BlitzenMagic Bloggers, I’m working my way through them slowly but surely. 🙂


    1. 😀 Oh good! I was going to use a picture of a clocktower, but your gravatar has become sort of iconic on it’s own. I’m so glad you like your card. Thank you for playing our reindeer games, and also for sending some rawr love to all these awesome blitzen bloggers! 🙂


      1. You’re welcome of course, you give=you get=you give. Pay it forward ya’ know, gotta keep the circle going. Plus I’m a quite gregarious and a bit of a social butterfly. Thanks for having me. I have a question I was wanting to email you about, you seem to really have the knack of things and I’m still sorta new (yet hit my 6 mo mark). Maybe you could help me out?


  3. ‘Like’ seems so pallid next to what I feel! I LOVE ADORE REVERE my magic card-how did you get that fabulous picture of me? I thought it lived only in my dreams. Thank you!RAWR!!!!


    1. 😀 Haha, yayyyy! I don’t remember the first comment I ever read from you but I just imagined it in a noir-esque voice… which of course I later learned might be a result of our shared love of costume-drama/humor-noir. 🙂 It was a random route to go, so I’m glad you love it!! Rawr! 🙂


  4. Seriously cool cards, still have no idea what it’s all about and my poor pre-Christmas/jet-laggy brain is only just managing to cope so I’m just going to look at the pretty pictures… 😀
