Obviously we don't have any alt art to look at and select which we prefer. What I mean is, out of all of the rares/legendaries that we've seen so far (I believe they confirmed that the alt art would be rare/legendary), which would you most like to see have an alt art variant for whatever reason?

I'm hoping they go with cards that are playable in a variety of decks rather than gimicky cards or cards that you really need to build around, just so that we can use them more freely. One that I actually wouldn't mind seeing is the Vampire King! Especially if the vampires he creates get a sexy upgrade too ;)!

How about you guys?

Princess Cory Alternate Art.

Edit: In truth, Zombie Plague. It's the coolest card I've seen on there.

I want the king! Really any human would be good for me c: But the king especially since I dont like his long hair or wolf in the background. Time to make the king shine!

Eh, I wouldn't want a unique card for alt art. No way would I play 4 of a 7 cost unique troop. I could understand wanting a different version if you like the card but not the art. I'm just hoping they go with something that people can play multiples of in a variety of decks to show off! lol

More art for humans/wolves/coyotle for me.

Obviously not going to happen, but it'd be cool to see a spectral lotus garden that produced AA loti. Now what I'd actually like to see. Relentless corruption is a creepy looking card and I can't play it as is lol. Eye of creation is just an amazing card and if it were one of the cards that we got then Collector would have been a good investment.

The best tournament card that will still be played in legacy formats in 10 years would be nice for AA :p

IndigoShade
06-06-2013, 08:41 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't be upset about Eye of Creation either. On one hand I already really like it's current art, so I'd be fine with not getting an alt art of it. It seems like a really powerful card that could fit in just about any deck that can generate a bunch of resources though. Which, if wild is anything like green in magic, shouldn't be a problem. Although I think all we've seen so far for that is Chlorophyllia.

So no one else wants an alternate Zombie Plague? For shame, people, for shame.

I want to see a badass robot or artifact card with some awesome alternate art.

They said the collector AA cards are going to be rare or legendary always.

Pretty much, without being specific as to the card - a spread of something like 2 legendaries, 4 rares, all competitively playable.

Yhea awesome card,

I hope for cards, that can create token cards, that then also have alternate art (but still counting as one of the 6AA^^).

At least one alternate card per year should be about bunnies, there can never be enough bunnies!

As long as the cards are readily useable in a number of decks and down the road. I would be disappointed if we need to builds decks around the AA cards to use them. Specifically I would like to see an Archmage Wrenlocke because that card looks like one I will put in half my decks.

Hmmm if there isn't a vampire queen card it'd be cool if alt art was female

CrimsonSoul

Remember the Alt Art are all going to be PvP cards

Trothael

I want an AA Mushwocky. Or AA Shin'hare cards. I'd be happy with either.

Tathel
06-07-2013, 07:42 AM
I'm kinda thinking since we get six we will likely get at least 1 of each colour and each race

BenRGamer
06-07-2013, 07:44 AM
There are eight races, so that's impossible

Tathel
06-07-2013, 07:44 AM

I meant each race in set 1, not all 8 are in set 1

Tyrfang
06-07-2013, 07:45 AM
1 of each color + 1 artifact seems likely.

CrimsonSoul
06-07-2013, 07:46 AM

Only getting 2 cards per set so that's 2 every 4 months for 6 a year

Poetic
06-07-2013, 07:48 AM
Since it's 6 per year, I hope they break them up 2 per set. And the 2 being chase rares/legendaries :)

IndigoShade

I'm pretty sure they never specified how they would handle the 6 cards a year. I asked during their stream, but didn't get an answer :(. 2 per set would be logical if they're doing sets every 4 months. The question then is: if all of the KS rewards go into effect at the start of beta and beta is longer than 4 months, do we get more alt art for set 1? We just have to wait to see, I guess.

Tathel
06-07-2013, 08:02 AM
I think it depends on how set 2 launches. Because if we get our rewards at beta in september. And they don't start releasing set 2 til 4 months after actual release (2014ish). It's possible that year will tick by with only set 1 being released.

Kroan
06-07-2013, 08:06 AM
I'd love to see Eye of Creation as alternate art. That card is friggin' sweet! :D

They DID specify. It's 2 per set every 4 months -- they wanted to spread it out over the year.

Dopplegadget would be fun, and a good card to have different art for thematically as well.

Tiuvath
06-07-2013, 08:12 AM
the logical way to split it up would be 2 each set, 1rare/1legendary

I'd be surprised if they didnt do it like that

MatWith1T

I don't care what the card is as long as it's AA is Kyle wrestling a bear.

An equally logical way of doing it would be to have 1 of each shard, 1 artifact, all the first set of a block.

First sets of blocks are the largest, so there's the most to choose from.

They also have the most "legal" playtime, because rotations occur on a block basis. Set 2/3 of each block will be rotated out at the same time as Set 1 of a block.

hmm thats true, didnt think of it that way, actually that makes even more sense

I'd rather have the Rare+Legendary each set. You still get a year+ to use Set 3 cards in block which is reasonable, and I love eternal formats so I'd love to see cards from every set rather than just every third set.

Hibbert
06-07-2013, 10:26 AM
Were the AA cards ever confirmed as being rare/legendary only? I've seen this repeated a lot, but I don't remember seeing it in an update. Was it in one of the audio interviews?

Zomnivore
06-07-2013, 10:30 AM
Fairly certain it was confirmed hibbert

About 1908 AA cards. 477 playsets. (Not counting unknown last minute paypal additions.) Best guess, somewhere around 480-490 playsets.

IndigoShade
06-07-2013, 11:25 AM
I think you need to double that number. The added a copy of each alt art to the Collector's tier for the +1 KS exclusive cards stretch goal.

That doesn't sound right... 729 Collectors + 1000 Grand King + 50 Dragon lord + 25 Primals + 1 Immortal + 14 Producers = 1829 (x2 for the AA cards)

Where are you getting the extra?

Edit: Forgot primals and paypal Collectors

It would be cool if the AA cards would be (maybe not all the time) the draft black&white version of the art?
UDE did that for KT back in the day and it looked great

Bunnies.

Edit: Specifically, I would like to see some of the more comical Shin'hare cards done in a traditional japanese woodblock style.

Edit: Oooh, also, alternative layout. Full bordered cards with text inset in an image, maybe with a "triple back" to get the full card art.

BenRGamer
06-07-2013, 02:53 PM
...so you want AA cards to be unfinished art?

GreyGriffin
06-07-2013, 06:12 PM
No, no, not unfinished art, but stylistic art. By japanese woodcut art, I mean in the style of the prints sold here.

Ukiyo-e Heroes (http://www.ukiyoeheroes.com)

I would hardly call the work of these artists unfinished.

And by full-card art, I mean art that has no borders or color boundaries for text. A cool "alternate" back would be the full artwork unobstructed by card text and statistics.

I could hardly describe this as unfinished.

Not you, I was talking to Fire Blast. Draft Black & White versions of the normal art... unfinished art.
