Teach Magic to Kids Using Baby Steps (A Fan Set) October 10, 2013

Posted by James in : all, fake cards , trackback

I made the beginner level of Baby Steps, a fan-made Magic set created to help us teach our friends and kids. All the art used on the cards should be in the public domain. There are 50 cards so far, but I might add an intermediate and advanced level of the game at some point.

Baby Steps has the following simplifications:

  1. It only uses creatures, sorceries, and basic lands.
  2. The only creature ability is flying.
  3. There is only colored mana.

There’s none of the following:

  1. Instants
  2. Artifacts
  3. Enchantments
  4. Planeswalkers
  5. Colorless mana
  6. The stack
  7. The exiled zone
  8. Activated abilities
  9. Triggered abilities
  10. Trample, first strike, reach, etc.

Players are encouraged to make a deck using cards of a single color, and each color only contains three sorceries. This is likely to make it easier for smaller kids to simply memorize the sorcery cards, so almost no reading is really required to play.
