Spooktoberfest 2023


Hi custom magic creator community... I mean, greetings, fellow monsters and creatures of the night. I, jpastor, have been in the mood to bring the MTGCardsmith blog back lately and what better way to kickstart its return than with some themed and limited time contests for Halloween!?

I've compiled a quick list of some of the Halloween-related contests and challenges from the MTGCardsmith community forums over the years. Partake in as many of them as you wish.

Many cards created for this on MTGCardsmith will be featured on the homepage and/or will receive a favorite from Spooktoberfest.

Along with MTGCardsmith creations, some cards created on non-MTGCardsmith platforms, like Set Designer or MTG.Design, will be talked about in The Custom Magic Podcast with community members, and posted to my YouTube channel.

Use any of these methods to partake in this event!

  1. Post the URL of your entries in the comments section of this blog post
  2. Post your cards in the MTGCardsmith Community Forums here: Spooktoberfest
  3. Tweet them! @MTGCardsmith #mtg #trickortweet
