MTG Card Maker v2.0

MTG Card Maker 2
Very shortly we'll be launching an updated version of the M15 Card Editor. This new version features:
  • An updated image uploader - mobile and tablet friendly!
  • Updated styles to match the rest of the site
  • Stability improvements
  • Manual toggle for Power/Toughness display - no more "smart" rules to worry about
In addition to the updates, we'll also be sunsetting the Modern Card Editor and removing it from our creation options. In the long run we hope to re-introduce modern frames into the current editor. The modern-frame editor was our first editor and the earliest code ever made for the site. So while we're sad to see her go, she'll not be forgotten and will likely return in one form or another.
Note: After the switchover, edits (for Premium accounts) to modern framed cards will launch the new card editor and give it the appropriate M15 frame.

If you're keeping tabs, its clear that we're working through our yearly goals at a solid pace! We're on track and excited to dive deeper into building the perfect planeswalker editor.

Cardsmith 2017: The Year Ahead

In the last year, we've done everything from new Hybrid Borders, major account updates, and Edit Card functionality - on top of two major site contests and our daily site upkeep . However we didn't get everything done and there are plenty of projects we are waiting to sink our teeth into! Here is a brief look at our goals for MTG Cardsmith and the community in the year ahead.

1. Major Server Update - things get old, and we're behind on some important updates that are preventing us from delivering an A+ experience with card editors. This is not only the most necessary update, it's also the most risky and hardest to plan for. Regardless, it must be done and therefore is the first item on our list. Once complete, new features ahead should be much smoother. Time Estimate: 1 month

2. Mobile Friendly Uploader - With #1 out of the way we can finalize the remaining work left here, and standardize around a solid, mobile-friendly upload/crop experience.

3. Update M15 Editor Form - All of our editors are due for a facelift, so we're starting with the primary editor first.

4. M15 Planeswalker Editor - Using the above inertia, we're due for a new planeswalker creator, with the latest frames, advanced features and a better uploader.

5. Retire Modern editor - This was the first editor ever made, and it shows its age on the front and in its code. We'd like to retire this editor, and potentially include modern frame selection options in the M15 card editor as an alternative.

6. Additional account features and site design improvements.


These are the major goals we have lined up. We also aim to keep improving and adding features as the game of Magic continues to change, and of course new set icons and new contests! With your help, we can get things in a solid place where we can continue adding ideas like transforms, full-art frames, and other community ideas.

Thank you for your support in 2016, and if you like what we're doing, we hope you will continue or start supporting us in the year ahead.

Happy New Year!

ps. We're holding a New Year's contest until January 28th: 2017, Year of the Fire Rooster
