1. Transmute



Good heavens, just look at it! You can get lost in that mane for days. The blue and purple color scheme, while perhaps samey, gives Transmute a magical vibe befitting of the expansion.



I'm looking at my ratings of the cards and they are mostly uniform for this set. Numbers aside, that's basically how I feel. There's not too much spectacular art in Alchemy, but it all fits and it's all competent. I can't complain. The box art is average. The little kid warming his hands on the flask is cute if nothing else. I just noticed that the alchemist is wearing what looks like a trench coat with his silly old-school hat, which is somewhat jarring, but what can we do? Yeah, numbers. That's right.

My average rating for Alchemy is 7.12. The sets are continuing to look better overall, and the lack of particularly weaker art makes a big difference.

Current ranking:
Alchemy 7.12
Seaside 6.73
Base 6.4
Intrigue 6.02

Up next is Prosperity. I apologize for updates being more sporadic lately. As the end of the semester nears, I find myself under mountains of schoolwork that have been diverting my attention from what is truly important: ranking card art on the internet. If I miss days, I'll do my best to get multiple posts done whenever I do finally update.

Love how we gave JSH a pass on describing apprentice for this set. He deserves the break guys. Probably he's working hard, and not just lying to us about it.

Man, George R R Martin is really just taking any excuse to not finish writing Winds of Winter.

Part 5: Prosperity

25. Mind



All the man wanted was to work at the local Mint and produce coin to be used across the kingdom. Instead, he found himself in the middle of a nightmarish feast. His garment slowly threatens to consume his entire body, changing flesh to blue. Though his beard contains great power, it can only counteract so much. This is no age of Prosperity; he should at least be minting Silver.

Poor Mine. Ranked last out of the Prosperity card arts. At least it's a very good trasher.

Oh, so that's what you Ment.

Anyway, how nightmarish can the Feast be if it has mint in it? At the very least, your breath will smell good after you eat. Or is Nightmarish Feast a new Ruin, which only lets you gain a card costing up to $1?

24. Talisman



The Talisman contains the soul of Lord Voldemort. When worn during your turn, you see images of Chancellor making out with Herbalist. Sometimes this causes the fabric of reality to break and you gain copies of objects recently purchased. Oh, and uh, art-wise. Something about scrolls, cool-looking candles, but nothing special.

Schadd has adapted to the point where he can breathe only art criticism. In the airless environment in which JSH has forced him to live, he is now suffocating. "!", while also most likely the only character that his trembling hand could reach on the keyboard, is also a subtle nod of appreciation for the project that has become his lifeblood.

he would've had to hold the "shift" key and hit the "1" key tho. while his hands are trembling, no less. seems like a minor flaw in your otherwise totally reasonable hypothesis.

Even while suffocating, Schadd's got skillz.

The current state of this thread has made me think a few times of this (very) short story by Jorge Luis Borges, called "On Exactitude in Science."

". . . In that Empire, the Art of Cartography attained such Perfection that the map of a single Province occupied the entirety of a City, and the map of the Empire, the entirety of a Province. In time, those Unconscionable Maps no longer satisfied, and the Cartographers Guilds struck a Map of the Empire whose size was that of the Empire, and which coincided point for point with it. The following Generations, who were not so fond of the Study of Cartography as their Forebears had been, saw that that vast map was Useless, and not without some Pitilessness was it, that they delivered it up to the Inclemencies of Sun and Winters. In the Deserts of the West, still today, there are Tattered Ruins of that Map, inhabited by Animals and Beggars; in all the Land there is no other Relic of the Disciplines of Geography."

This thread is on hold until I finish the research paper I'm working on now, the one due a few days after it, and finals week is over (probably). It moves me to tears that you guys are looking forward to the rest, but I don't have the focus to write anything at the moment and I don't want to dissatisfy you with just the list and no extremely insightful analysis. Or skeleton jokes.

Hang in there, guys.
