The more a person realizes the true state of his existence, the less they are deluded. The more fully they understand themselves and their surroundings, the better they can command them, until, becoming an Adept, they can pass into another state of existence, in which they realize a new order of things and a new variety of sensations, as real to them as the physical ones they experienced during the objective life of the animal only.

sirzapdos asked: MTG has anthropomorphized various animals, like birds, cats, elephants, rhinoceroses and snakes. Are there any animals that are off-limits? Could we ever see a Bear Soldier or a Hound Knight?

I’m not sure if any animal types are off-limits for humanoid-ifying. Some probably are — I mean, “doesn’t look cool to the art directors” is good way never to exist as a race in Magic — but I wouldn’t be shocked to see either of your examples someday, if we visit a world where they’d fit.

Note that some creature types have traditionally changed terms when they become humanoid — bovine humanoids are Minotaur, fish-tailed humanoids are Merfolk, lizardlike humanoids are Viashino. Most of those changes are because of existing mythological creature terms, though.

(Viashino could probably have just been Lizard Warrior or whatever, like loxodons are type Elephant. We definitely talked about doing that with viashino, but we were about to print a bunch of viashino in Alara block around the time of the Grand Creature Type Update, and didn’t want to change in the middle of a block that involved viashino, if I’m remembering right.)

Not gonna lie, I find it kinda sad that everyone outside of a few old school storyline fans seems to have forgotten that Viashino aren’t lizards-people. They’re dragon-people.

Of course, those were the days when Viashino were intelligent, rather than just violent semi-humans. A lot has changed since the days of Urza and Gerrard. :/

levitattoo asked: The move to portal style lands and the advent of token cards were cool innovations that came from sets that didnt do well (in one way or another) what other iterations like this can you point to that have had a similar impact on the game?

markrosewater:

Unglued sold well. The issue was overprinting not lack of interest.

I do agree though that sets that don’t do well can have aspects that improve Magic in the long term.

maskenkind asked: how limited is the design space for nonartifact colorless cards, and is flavor or function the bigger restriction?

markrosewater:

It’s not a space we want to use very much and so far the Eldrazi have been the one to claim it flavorwise.

Its the sixth color of magic.
