Card of the Day - Monday, December 19, 2011

The Ultimate Nightmare of Wizards of the Coast® Customer Service Unglued uncommon. The phone number in the flavor text of The Ultimate Nightmare of Wizards of the Coast® Customer Service is no longer accurate. But in the United States and Canada, (800) 324-6496 will work. Outside those countries, use (425) 204-8069 or go to wizards.custhelp.com.

Card of the Day - Friday, December 16, 2011

The Iron Guardian Stirs Archenemy scheme. You know, it's not really all that evil to have a golem standing by in case you're attacked. In a way, most Archenemy players are being ganged up on unfairly! That's "players who are playing the Archenemy," not "anybody playing Archenemy," if you see what we mean.

Card of the Day - Thursday, December 15, 2011

Heroic Defiance Planeshift common. This somewhat complicated mechanic appeared on two cards in Invasion (Barrin's Unmaking and Tsabo's Assassin) and made a reappearance in Planeshift on Heroic Defiance.

Card of the Day - Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Bronze Calendar Unglued uncommon. The art for Bronze Calendar actually shows a bronze colander, which is a reference to the times that artists have misunderstood what they're supposed to draw. Examples include Hyalopterous Lemure and Alchor's Tomb, which was supposed to be a tome.

Card of the Day - Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Karn, Silver Golem Urza's Saga rare. Before appearing as the Planeswalker Karn Liberated, Karn was a commonplace creature. The other Planeswalkers that first appeared as creatures are Venser and Nicol Bolas.

Card of the Day - Monday, December 12, 2011

Zuberi, Golden Feather Mirage rare. There were actually four non-Zuberi Griffins in Mirage, including a mini-combo involving the sacrifice of Unyaro Griffin, which could be brought back with Mtenda Griffin.

Card of the Day - Friday, December 09, 2011

Guma Urza's Saga uncommon. You can see from the art and flavor text that the Guma likes to hunt at the edge of the water. This makes sense for a creature with protection from blue, since it has nothing to fear from even the toothiest shark.

Card of the Day - Thursday, December 08, 2011

Assault Zeppelid Dissension common. In their natural form, Zeppelids are blue-aligned creatures. But the Simic mages have grafted green magic into this one to make it more warlike. You can see the pure blue version on Stratozeppelid.

Card of the Day - Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Mesa Chicken Unglued common. The art for Mesa Chicken represents Kev Walker's interpretation of the instruction to create a real, yet majestic, chicken.

Card of the Day - Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Devout Harpist Urza's Legacy common. We can't improve on this comment by tavaritz: This was the 200th Magic card which name started with D if we count the Urza's Legacy cards in alphabetical order. If in collector's number order then it's Defense Grid.

Card of the Day - Monday, December 05, 2011

Grizzly Bears Seventh Edition common. After illustrations by Jeff A. Menges and Una Fricker, Grizzly Bears got an illustration by D. J. Cleland-Hura, which is the art it stuck with for the rest of its stay in the core set. That stay ended in Tenth Edition, since Runeclaw Bear took its place starting in Magic 2010.

Card of the Day - Friday, December 02, 2011

Creepy Doll Innistrad rare. Creepy Doll fact one: The original art was given away at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con. Fact two: The background doll shows up on Kindercatch. Fact three: Mark Rosewater says it's based on a Jonathan Coulton song.

Card of the Day - Thursday, December 01, 2011

Uktabi Wildcats Seventh Edition rare. Both Uktabi Wildcats and Nightmare base their toughness directly on something else, as opposed to cards like Lhurgoyf that add one. So the controller of Uktabi Wildcats could sacrifice a Forest to regenerate it but inadvertently reduce its toughness to zero!
