The Atheist vs. Theist Magic: the Gathering block is underway! Dr. David Burger has done most of the heavy lifting with oodles of ideas coming in via facebook and other mediums. The first set will be called “The Dark Ages”, and will be out just as soon as we can work around our schedules and get it done. The first set will be theist-heavy with influence from some of the oldest atheist philosophers.
The block will be balanced and playable. We plan to export it to Magic Workstation (download the free evaluation version) for online play. I may even organize some draft tournaments through this blog.
Here are some teasers. Click to make them magically large.
So here’s your chance to help. We’re looking for common-level cards for both theist and atheist sides. Examples of theist commons might be things like “Mob Rule”, “Offering Plate”, or “Pedophile Priest”. For the atheist side it might be things like “Fossils”, “Campus Organizer”, or “Museum Curator”. What figures represent the common players on both sides of the movement?
