Welcome to the Community Sets subforum!

Why Are We Here?

Cards do not exist in a vacuum. When cards are made at Wizards of the Coast, they are printed in Sets of about 249 (large) or 145 (small) at a time. Three or four Sets are then put together to make a Block, consisting of anywhere from 500 to 600 cards, depending on how big or small the Sets are. Then, two Blocks are put together with a Core Set to produce a Standard Environment—an amount of cards equal to about 1443 cards, which was the number of cards in the official Standard Environment at the time of this post's writing. Another way cards can be organized together is in Cubes of anywhere from 360 to 720 or more cards, which have less unity between cards than Sets and Blocks do, but are still meant to be drafted together as a unit.

This is the subforum for projects that put multiple cards together to create something beyond the sum of their parts. While many of the cards you'll see in the main forum are simply ICDs, often with no rarity, the cards you post in here will be part of a greater whole. Whether the project in question is built by the community together or by you alone, this is the place for discussion of how that project is coming along.
