I was asked for the maximum. Remember that Return to Ravnica block had 11. It also, by the way, matters about what those mechanics are. If you have 11 or 12, a lot of them better be pretty simple.

Thank you. That’s very nice of you to say.

Unless the artist works at Wizards, chances are very low.

It feels good. His #1 record was a long time coming.

I think it is a minor change.

There’s time at the end for questions. : )

zanmor said: What is the maximum number of new keyword abilities you are willing to put in a block? In a set?

Probably 11 or 12 is the most I’d want to do.

psychic-venom said: Why does WotC hate blue white planeswalkers - first Venser and now the new guy in the story from last week who fell to Garruk's axe? Will we ever see a blue / white planeswalker who lives longer than 5 minutes?

Look for a new short story in “Uncharted Realms” called “The Last Six Minutes of My Life”. : )

It’s the kind of thing I’m sure we’ll do one day but not necessarily sometime soon.

No.

I mean they might be second cousins or something.

manacharged said: Whoa, usually you bold Magic in your articles, but yesterday you italicized it. What gives?

I always bold it. My editor must have changed it but I’m not sure why. Usually expansions are italicized and the game is bold.
