BlitzenMagic : Salvation!

Round #6 of the Blitzen prizes.  *sprinkles magic everywhere*

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.

BlitzenMagic - the Bloggathering!

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. eeee!!! I’m squealing with giddiness!!! Are we allowed to keep the cards (copy and paste?) Post to our own blog if we give you credit? These are ALL amazing, and I really love how you mixed in magic card magic with these images, especially Arden’s – holy cow!! I know this wasn’t meant as a Xmas present, but I’m considering it at such and this will probably be the bestest thing I’m getting this year!!! Yay. Yay. Yay. Thank you so much Rara, you have so much talent and I’m in AWE!! You have no idea how happy you’ve made me!


    1. Of course, and no credit necessary– everything on my blog is free to re-use, repost, remix, etc. Plus, this is for you– you can do whatever you’d like with it. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Rae– I’m so glad you liked the gift! xo! 🙂


  2. Oh, man, Rara. All of these of great. So far, there hasn’t been a set I didn’t like. I can’t help but wish I’d played so I could anticipate my own card.
