alphasquid asked: Have you had a chance to see Joss Whedon's acting debut on YouTube? The video is called "Scary Smash", episode 1 of the Written by a Kid webseries. (You should do a series or article: Designed by a Kid).
griftermage asked: Why don't people drink milk on Bant? Because they're Rakdos-intolerant.
baronvonbomb asked: What are all of the different knobs available when designing limited? I only know speed.
eternalcheechako asked: If it were 100% of to you, which is more likely over the next five or so core sets: 1) No hybrid cards in the next five core sets. 2) A token hybrid card similar to the Bolas reprint. 3) A mini hybrid theme.
alphasquid asked: Today you answered my latest question: "It’s frustrating to have people state as a fact things I’ve said that I never actually said." Was that in reference to me saying that one of your pet peeves used to be answering the same questions over and over? (I often find it difficult to interpret tone from your answers I'm also very self-conscious.) :P
totaldreck asked: You recently answered a question about a fight to the death against a Demon where you chose to play a Golgari deck to defend your life. As a "Johnny" styled player (that I could swear I remember you referring to yourself as), did you pick it for that purpose as a "If I'm going down I'm having fun!" or would you force yourself to be a spike to overcome the challenge?
wyndfox asked: What color(s) do you feel are most closely tied to "elements." Such as air, fire, water, etc. Not like gold, radon, boron, neptunium, etc.
ghostdaddotcx-deactivated201212 asked: Could/would Weirds ever exist outside of Ravnica?
legerdelangue asked: I recently had the lovely Guildpact expansion symbol tattooed on my foot. I was wondering if any of the staff, or anyone you know, has any Magic - related tattoos?
enigmatheo asked: I think Wizards is doing a great job with marketting RTR block. The Facebook app, the new planeswalker points achievements, and the way the pre-release and release events are being done is phenomenal. Can't wait to see what else is in store to drive this set home!
snikersnack asked: Was there ever any thought to making Karn Liberated the first ever "Artifact Planeswalker" Type? I feel like it would have made a lot of sense.
fundar asked: How is your day going?
insertstupidblogname asked: Maro, do you have a favorite card art or artist?
ramshackleknight asked: This isn't so much a question as it is a thank you. I know you're really busy and you don't have to answer our questions, but you treat us little people with so much respect. I just wish all of us treated you with the same respect, so on their behalf, I apologize.
mamarrachopro asked: We gonna will see cards that where design for "Mirrodin Pure" on another sets?
-insertwittyname- asked: DATE/TIME: 8/31 2:07pm CST. By the time this is posted PAX party will be well underway/over. Thanks for getting the Shocklands reprinted! I think its awesome that you guys redeemed yourself with the 2CMC mono blue Jace. It seems much more powerful than Tibalt! Thanks for doing what you do Maro! :)
mrwilsonuk asked: In the original Ravnica limited format, once the second set came out the color combinations stopped being so much about the two color guilds as a three color combination. Did this factor into the 5-5-All format for RtR... an attempt to make Limited feel more 2 color and "guild matters"?
tnessfftto asked: You and the folks of this Tumblr are largely responsible for getting me into Doctor Who. What do you have to say for yourself?
alphasquid asked: In 2002, one of your major pet peeves as a Magic celebrity was that you get asked the same questions over and over. What are your pet peeves today, as a Magic celebrity?
thepromethean asked: very happy to return to Ravnica this year. it's my favourite plane in the Mtg universe. what are some of yours and why?
gunsandrifles asked: Do guilds represent the end-all of each color combination? Do you think a guild of a certain color combo could exist and be very different from the currently existing one?
uwcontrol asked: Why is storm bad?
snl-rph asked: You don't need to answer this, but I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the fact that you are so much a part of the Magic community on a more personal level that just being that guy who makes cards. I follow this blog on all 3 of my tumblrs and show it to every single person I play with. Just wanted to say thank you!
silpheed-tandy asked: *sigh* it's just hitting me now that an hour from now, i WON'T be seeing a new column from Zac. when Doug stopped writing columns, i felt pretty sad about it -- not sad about him moving on, 'cause it's good when people can pursue things --, but i get to feel excited whenever my favourite column writers write. it's more than just a column, but almost like getting a gift...
curtherocker asked: How do you prnounce izzet? Is it literally "is it" or is it "is et"?
doopboopdoop asked: Hey Maro who do you call when the Large Hadron Collider breaks? Quantum mechanics!
drayenn asked: As a follow up were curses well received?
zemyla asked: Will you continue to Boros with terrible Ravnica-related puns?
stickfigure8 asked: A demon from Avacyn Restored forces you to duel him in MTG and the loser dies. He has 10 decks for you to choose from, one of each guild. If you have to pick your favorite guild to do battle with, which would it be? (Elaborate way of asking which is your favorite guild)
loverofbarrels asked: If you had to bring back either one of these mechanics, which one would it be: Cumulative upkeep, phasing, or banding?
relentlessasrats asked: What do you think about Garruk Relentless's middle ability? Is it a color pie bleed, or is it close enough to fight that it works as green removal?
dearmarkrosewater asked: What costs more complexity points: A self-sacrifice ability, or a death trigger?
mtgmanabarbs asked: What's the most important design decision that was made in the early years of the game that wasn't made in Alpha?
dshirle7 asked: Do you have any idea who's in charge of the promotional graphics for Return to Ravnica (revised guild symbols, color schemes, artwork and texture choices, etc)? I just realized that person is really good at his/her job, after I noticed that the exact shades of color used vary from guild to guild. (e.g. Azorius' blue is sky blue, Dimir's is dark blue, Izzet's is Indigo and...
eternalcheechako asked: With regards to the shark thing: Sharks are negatively buoyant. If they were to ever stop moving, they would sink to the bottom of the ocean. So they never sleep.
altimis asked: 31/08/2012: When you guys do top-down design it varies whether you start with a picture, a name etc. correct? If so, and if you're starting with a picture, do you the designers pick what picture you want to design for, or are you handed a picture and told to design a card for it?
foxtrot929 asked: I've really enjoyed watching the Players Championship and I think the coverage has been great (I think everybody, especially Marshall, have really improved over the past few months), but there is SOOO much hate on forums and in the chat. Do the guys who do coverage ever ask for advice on how to deal with the vitriol (since you seem to have a lot of experience) or are they just naturally...
dukkhasatva asked: Ok so after reading the Unhinged FAQTIWDAWCC, it says about Frazzled Editor: "What if a line has both italicized and non-italicized text? As long as a line has one word of non-italicized text it counts as a line of text for Frazzled Editor." Does this include flavor text that has non-italicized parts?
elitemantis asked: Hey Maro. I have a question regarding the Rakdos guild. While BR colours to me scream 'hedonism' and 'do what you will', why is the guild being portrayed as a band of murdering screwheads? Are there no Rakdos members who just enjoy the life? Have lavish feasts, play some sports or read books instead of working? After all, you don't need to kill other people to have fun....
stidjen asked: Idea for an article: what do you think of social media, and how have they affected Magic (or how will they continue to affect Magic in the future)?
bassimelwakil asked: Why do people hate Rich Hagon, BDM, Sutcliffe, et al? I think the coverage is great (ignoring technical difficulties that occur time to time). As someone who plays casual Magic since Revised and pays little attention to any constructed tournaments, I find the current coverage very easy to sit down and watch deck techs and so forth; they're clear, informative, and fun. I like the current team...
mithrandiryoda asked: I would like to thank you for answering so many of our questions. Could you post a message when you start on questions from a new day so that we can know up to when you have processed our questions?
fallen-reality asked: On another question, you said that planeswalkers can only planeswalk. I thought that Sorin creating Avacyn was a 'once-in-a-lifetime' event he could do because he was a planeswalker? Similar situations: Karn creating Mirrodin, and Venser giving Karn his Spark. These seem related to being Planeswalkers, are they?
nocturnal-nightingale asked: I have a Sunday PAX ticket, but I really want to go to the Magic party. Is there any way I can (because it's at Showbox at the Market and not the Convention Centre)?
ketermuls asked: Who names the public names for sets? It the answer is "usually creative", which recent ones were not?
wobbles asked: Which Whedon project are you looking forward to the most? Avengers 2, SHIELD, Dr Horrible 2, Much Ado or In Your Eyes?
winmill asked: Is it possible that instead of "Flicker" being the main cause of Avacyn's success, the new Duels of the Planeswalkers games brought a lot of new players in? (Not to take anything away from Flicker! It's a nifty mechanic, don't get me wrong!)
xanderxela asked: In a recent question you mentioned a block that doesn't exist, Shards of Mirrodin, was this meant to imply Shards of Alara, Mirrodin, or both as an answer to the question.
nobodyargueswithaharpoon asked: How do I go about getting an invite to the PAX party?! I want a picture with you!
