    Talking READ ME: Alternate Art Cards

    Well shadowera finally sent out emails on Kickstarter for our email account and alternate art votes. I'm here to suggest certain cards that should have alternate arts. And also to talk about things to consider.

    Things to Consider

    1. Pick a card that will last on the board for more than a second. We want to appreciate the art. So do not pick shriek of vengeance.
    2. Do not pick an attachment. Seriously you won't even see the card.
    3. Do not pick a card where the alt art will be similar to original. Ex. Fireball and Tidal Wave. There are only so much ways you can draw them.
    4. Pick a card that is easily accessible to all human and shadows. Meaning do not pick class specific. You want it to be in every possible deck.
    5. Do not pick Aldon the Brave, Aeon Stormcaller, Death mage Thaddeus and Kairos Doombringer because they will have alternate art in the CotC Anthology Decks that comes with every backer.
    5. Last but not the least, PICK JASMINE. because (do I even have to explain?)

    So my choices are
    1. Jasmine
    2. Armored Sandworm
    3. Ironhide Karesh
    4. Infernal Gargoyle
    5. Shadow Knight

    Change Aldon and Aeon. Seriously, how many people are forgetting that those guys are already getting alt arts in the Anthology decks, and I don't think there's any point in giving those guys 3 artworks.

    Heck, I don't even care about Olgoth, Rotham's or Madelains...

    But, if you want to vote for Scourge or Karlstraad out of pity for folks with no Legendaries I won't mind....

    Could a SE member please clarify for me please:

    Is the survey in regards to the 70 K stretch goal? Just unsure as the stretch goal mentioned alternative arts for CotC, DP and SF... and obviously shattered fates is not out so we couldn't be voting on cards for the next generation.

    "And now for some more exclusive stuff! Now that we met the $70k funded level, all backers will get 20 alternate art cards, from any previous set, determined by popular vote. Maybe you want a more overpowered Firesnake, or maybe you would prefer to see Jasmine from a different angle? It's up to the backers to pick which cards our top artists will recreate! These cards will be exclusive, meaning they won't be found in booster packs or for sale in the merchant."


    Also just double checking this has nothing to do with the "pick your card for every $10 pledged". As I imagine this would only come about after the Shattered Fates cards are released

    "For every $10 you pledge, you'll get to pick a non-exclusive card from Call of the Crystals, Dark Prophecies or Shattered Fates to add to your library. For example, at the $30 reward level you'll get to pick 3 cards. Maybe you want a certain foil hero, or a foil Legendary? As long as it's a non-exclusive card (found in booster packs), it's no problem!"

    I added:
    Scourge Colossus
    Karlstrad
    Rothem's Visage

    So I've done my bit to assist others.

    Couldn't deny listing a new alt art of Jasmine though

    Another one you shouldn't pick when keeping this in mind is Snare Trap. That card appears quickly and then never appears again, lol.

    I say pick whatever you want, its your choice!

    Was actually quite hard for me to choose, but in the end I did stick with allies:

    Firesnake
    Shadow Knight
    Armored Sandworm
    Infernal Gargoyle
    Plasma Behemoth

    Even though I'd like to see some alt art stuff like Jeweler's Dream or Mind Control (for examples), allies and heroes are probably better for this sort of thing.

    No this has nothing to do with that, you'll get that one later. Considering it mentions you can choose Shattered Fates cards, its likely that you won't get to choose until its released.
