My Top 10 Articles of 2010 January 10, 2011

Posted by James in : all , trackback

Recoculous.com has continued to have regular content for over two years, and I have actually had something interesting to say from time to time. If you don’t have time to read everything I’ve ever said, you might want to skip to the good stuff. My top 10 lists will help.

1. Arabian Nights 2 Special Preview

A blast from the past became my most innovative idea of the year that was eventually transformed into a reality.

2. Power 9 Cards That Didn’t Make It Into Alpha

This answers the question, “What was the power 9 in an alternate reality?” It’s hard to know what card ideas were rejected in real life, so I just made it up on my own.

3. Nix: A Landless Magic Set

Does Magic really need lands? I explored this possibility. In 50-some years in the future, lands could become “outdated.”

4. Who is Timmy?

A Timmy is not necessarily a player who wants to play with big creatures. A Timmy is someone who enjoys Magic for the same reasons that most of us enjoy it.

5. Magic Core Set Predictions: Magic 2011 and Beyond

Most of my predictions of the future have been about what Magic will look like decades from now. I decided to switch gears and take a look at the not-too-distant-future.

6. Predicting the Future Part 1

Since I have so many ideas regarding the future of Magic, I decided to start an entire series called “Predicting the Future.” This is part 1, where I start off by predicting some cards that I expect to be made in the next 10 years.

7. Predicting the Future Part 7: Magic 2080

I have discussed what Magic will look like in 50 and 60 years. I continue this tradition by talking about Magic 70 years from now. (I actually have ideas for what Magic will look like up to 100 years in the future, and I hope to discuss Magic 110 at some point.)

8. Rise of Eldrazi in 2007

I was thinking of making a Magic set back in 2007 with some similarities to Rise of Eldrazi. In particular, I was going to have a colorless theme.

9. Stealing and Magic: the Gathering

Some people are less constrained by morality than others. Some people cheat and some will even steal your cards given the chance. I think there is something wrong with being immoral. I explore why stealing is wrong, why some people steal, and what we need to do to become better human beings.

10. My Top 10 Articles of 2009

I didn’t quite write this during 2010, but I might as well have. Either way, it will help you find more of my articles that might be worth a look.

Bonus: The Other Power 9.

Some cards that are just as good as the power 9 but much more affordable.
