Airquotes Designs the Best Card in Defenders of Equestria

On August 3, 2015, something terrible happened: Enterplay asked me to design a card for an upcoming set in the company’s fledgling My Little Pony Collectible Card Game.

The road was long and arduous, with numerous design ideas (rightfully) rejected, but after wearing them down with one poor life decision after another, I finally slipped a card through. Players can expect to find it in the game’s upcoming Defenders of Equestria set, but I’m gonna go ahead and spoil it here and now.

Let’s do this thing.

Troublemaker Solutions: An Examination

Hello friends, I’m Niko’s sister Charlotte, but I generally go by Chash on the internets, so we’ll go with that. Today, I wanted to talk about different ways to deal with Troublemakers, their pros and cons, and how happy you are to have them in a deck if your opponent isn’t playing Troublemakers. Of course, with new cards coming out in a few weeks, this will soon be obsolete, but isn’t that true of my entire life? It sure is.
