Door to a New Year

2017 was a phenomenal year here at MTGCardsmith. We've had four great Circuit Challenge seasons with four different winners, all determined by the community, new set symbols & features were released and we've seen many new faces on the site and in the Forums. But alas, the door to 2017 has closed and the door to a new year awaits us, but what will it bring? The Theme of the Month is what it will bring! That's right, we want to know what's behind this new door, so make us your best "Door" cards, and you might just see your card earn a feature this month!

December Is Upon Us!

Last month we feasted like kings. This month we cut down our enemies in a great and glorious fashion...

The Month of Dismember

This month we're looking at cards with the keyword Dismember.

Keyword Ability - Activated
Dismember [Cost] ([Cost], {t}: Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature and create a 0/1 colorless Appendage creature token.)
Keyword Ability - Triggered
Dismember (Whenever [this creature] is blocked, put a -1/-1 counter on the blocking creature and create a 0/1 colorless Appendage creature token.)

Make us your best cards with a version of the Dismember mechanic, and you could just earn yourself a FEATURE!!!

October Is Here!

Theme of the Month

This month, in honor of Halloween, we're going to be looking at cards with PUMPKINS in the art. All throughout October, a couple of lucky Cardsmiths will earn a FEATURE if we pick your Pumpkin themed card!

Featured Cardsmith

This site is driven by all of the amazing Cardsmiths who have contributed to our success, and to all the ones who are contributing now! Here are the first two Cardsmiths we'd like to feature.


Beeswax has been around for quite a while. His cards are some of the most favorited cards on the site, and for good reason. His concepts are well thought out and his designs constantly challenge the way we look at our own custom creations. Take a minute to check out this amazing Cardsmith!

He started off making Batman cards. Mind you, they were solid Batman inspired MTG Cards, but they were Batman cards nonetheless. We had no idea he would stick around and not only make all sorts of non-Batman cards, but he's been one of our many helpful Card Advisors, always offering helpful advice to anyone who will have it! If you've ever heeded the sage advice of Platypusburger, then spend a minute mulling over a few of his cards!
