Here’s what I believe to be the top 5 best articles from Recoculous.com in 2012:

1. Magic 2114: A Special Preview

You know how Magic cards are often more powerful in newer sets than they were in the past? Imagine that Magic cards get incrementally more powerful every decade. What will Magic be like 100 years from now? Find out what the power creep can do to the game. I really did create this Magic set, and it turned out quite well. Also see: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

2. Predicting the Future Part 13: Magic 2414 (1 of 4)

Magic cards can be more powerful 100 years from now, but what about 400 years from now? How absurd could the game get? I really did create this Magic set as well, and it turned out a lot better than I expected. Also see: Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

3. What Dark Ascension Should Have Been Like

What if Dark Ascension was based on the card game “Ascension?” We could defeat monsters to make more money, and use money to “buy cards.”

4. How to Make Your Own Magic: The Gathering Set

Some basics that should be considered for those of us who make our own Magic sets.

5. 20 Rules That No Longer Exist

The rules of Magic: the Gathering change greatly as time passes. Here’s a list of 20 of them. Also see the sequel—10 Other Secret Rules That No Longer Exist. I consider this to be one of a series of nostalgic pieces I wrote this year from the perspective of someone who has played the game since 1994. The first nostalgic piece I wrote was From Alpha to Legends: Top 10 Creative Cards.
