I was visiting Camden, Maine this weekend and found an adorable little local game shop called Knowledge Vault. They were hosting pre-release events for the new Magic the Gathering set so of course I had to play.
I got really lucky and opened some great white cards, so I went mono white for my deck.
Sword of the Animist turned out to be an unexpectedly awesome. I was often stuck on two mana, and equipping the Sword on a low cost creature like Anointer of Champions helped me get a lot more lands.
Archangel of Tithes was brutal for my opponents. Whenever it landed on the battlefield, I knew the fight was in my favor.
I ended placing top 8 in the tournament! I was super excited ’cause it was my first time making it so far. From my prize packs, I pulled a Liliana! Liliana is my favorite character in the Magic the Gathering universe, so I was elated!
Overall, I had a great time. Knowledge Vault was super cool. The regulars seem very friendly and I think everyone had fun. Definitely check it out if you’re near the area.
Here’s my deck list:
1x Sentinel of the Eternal Watch
1x Patron of the Valiant
1x Guardians of Meletis
1x Anointer of Champions
1x Topan Freeblade
1x Akroan Jailor
1x War Oracle
1x Stalwart Aven
2x Kytheon’s Irregulars
1x Runed Servitor
1x Ampryn Tactician
1x Archangel of Tithes
3x Suppresion Bonds
1x Alchemist’s Vial
1x Sword of the Animist
1x Celestial Flare
1x Grasp of the Hieromancer
1x Gideon’s Phalanx
Progenitor of the Voldaren bloodline, this lady knows how to throw a good party.
My favorite part of this figurine are the ruffled edges in her dress.
Her attitude is pretty awesome too.
1. Couldn’t make it to MtG Meetup this week
2. On a losing streak of ~20 in DOTA
3. Out of pickles
Gonna sleep it off. Hope next week will be better.
I made a really cool spirit token figurine, inspired by the Gatecrash token.
Someone gave me this awesome idea to have it hold a D20, to either represent toughness or number of spirits.
The most awesome part of this figurine is the hollow body. Everything looks like sheets piled on top of each other.
This fella would be awesome in a spirit token deck.
Here she is, and this one’s a beauty.
This is Oona, Queen of the Fae, a powerful Faerie Wizard from Magic the Gathering.
This lady is my first Etsy commission. She’s going to be a wonderful General for an EDH deck.
I can imagine all the festive Magic events where she can make her Planeswalker proud.
Rakdos is here!
This Rakdos is already several designs different from my original design. I think I’m going to change it a bit more.
He came out beautifully in this gorgeous bright red.
He has a lot of wonderful tiny details that are really hard to capture on camera.
I really like having a secret guild symbol on the bottom.
[update: printed here]
Oh man am I excited.
So I don’t usually post my 3D prints unless they come out pretty good, but I am super excited about this one. I just placed an order today!
Behold: Rakdos, Lord of Riots
This came about when I was testing out a new modelling tool, Sculptris, instead of my usual Maya and Max.
I *love* Sculptris! It’s a whole new way of modelling!
I had to rig my model after exporting it from Sculptris to pose it. As a side result, I can animate it.
Run Rakdos Run!
I saw a really cool idea about having dice/spindown holders so I thought I’d turn the figurine into a spindown holder as well.
The dice goes into the triangle groove, with a face facing up. We’ll have to wait and see if it actually fits…*nervous chuckle*
I ordered a figurine and a dice holder in polished red plastic, so here are some red renders while I wait:
