It's a kind of magic. . Post crash post. Originally built for the 2010 MOC Olympics, but pics disappeared after the 2011 crash. . This was round 5 for the 2010 MOC Olympics, themed Magicpunk. My opponent was Tyler Halliwel.
My Magicpunk is totally inspired by the Magic the Gathering Card game. Played the game a few years, but quit around seventh edition. My favourite card sets were Tempest and Urza’s Saga. My favourite artwork artist is John Avon .
Wizards of the coast is were you’ll find most of the information about the game.
I feel like this is my most aesthetic build so far. I love the fact that the base is not square and the back is a tip. I had good fun in choosing colour schemes for each segment too. Each segment represents a colour and it’s game aspects. White for protection, life gaining and sanctuary. Blue for counter spells, control and wisdom. Red for land destruction, direct damage and fire. Black for generating mana, graveyard abilities and death. Green for big creatures, regeneration and strength. There is also a total lack of steering, handles or computers. They do use machinery but all is wheeled by magic.
I made every Magicpunk vehicle emplaced in a segment shaped scenery. It may count as artwork on the playing cards. In addition, I added all of the (fictive) information like it should be on an official card, but none of them actually exist (I wish!).
