NGA Masters 3
Roleplaying Strikes Back

Number of Cards: 100ish
Set Code: NM3
Lead Designer: Chin Kee Yong (a.k.a. CKY)

Like its two predecessors, NGA Masters 3 is a set focused on introducing noteworthy ICDs and fun elements of board culture into NGA Constructed. The theme this time around is the Roleplaying and Play-by-Post section, which has been left out so far by my NGA Masters offerings - quite unfairly, I might add. With NGA Masters 3, I hope to raise awareness for our oft-neglected section of the community, and hopefully create more interest in the roleplaying side of things. For fans of YMtC and the Expanded Multiverse, fear not: Cards of the Week and elements of the Expanded Multiverse won't be neglected either.

After the fiasco that was NGA Masters 2, I've decided to make a few changes to the format of the NGA Masters series. First off, it won't be bound by the rarity distribution or size restrictions of an ordinary Magic set. It doesn't make sense when the set isn't intended to be drafted or released in physical form. I've also decided to do previews and ICDs for the set, like we normally do with other designs: it fosters discussion and feedback, which I think is important in an undertaking intended for the community like this.

Ready to begin? Prepare your spells and roll initiative!

I don't know why you would actually ever do this, but you told me that NGAM3 would feature Woes of Desmea, so this is a reminder.

This is probably going to be released into NGA Constructed soon. Any thoughts on other cards I ought to include? I'm looking for contest winners, unrepresented Play-by-Post and/or Roleplaying games, and the like.

I expect Violentblood Warbattler to be a format staple.

Do flipped cards keep their damage? If they do Isamaru would just flip and then die again. Also I get why it's flip because Kamigawa but I'd still prefer it to be transform personally

Dude can't look at fan designs or he'll get shot by lawyers. Seems a little anal-retentive when the Hearthstone team do it all the time but who even knows/

It's going into the next NGA Constructed plugin. Then you can play with the cards and stuff.
