“Magical Girl Wall” xD.
This all seems absolutely fantastic.
Can’t wait for the full set to be done ❤
Thanks for the encouragement. Just like real magic, this is a full set of 240ish cards and I’ve actually already started on the second set of this “block.” So there’s plenty more to come.
This is really a well thought out set, and i am enjoying it immensely (even more so than the awesome Monty Python set that’s floating around the Internet). I am guessing that Ultimate Madoka (Madokami) would probably be the most powerful card in the set. Perhaps its summon cost is lowered for every Madoka (Kaname) card already exiled.
Hey 🙂 This is a random question….I have been searching for the last hour on the internet for the COMPLETE list of Madoka Magica cards. I have found a few separate lists, like the cards from the Trial deck and the cards from the Booster packs.
I am getting quite confused because, as you will see in the links, the card numbers have a different set up for the Booster packs and the Trial deck respectively.
Trial Deck – http://weissschwarz.wikia.com/wiki/Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_(English_Trial_Deck)
Booster Pack – http://weissschwarz.wikia.com/wiki/Puella_Magi_Madoka_Madoka_(Booster)
The Trial Deck has MM/W17-TE01
The Booster pack has MM/W17-E001
I am looking to collect ALL of the Madoka Magica cards, and I need a definitive list, listing ALL of the cards.
Are the cards from the Trial Deck and Booster packs all the cards there are?
Sorry for the huge read, I’m just getting quite distraught that I cannot find a simple list of cards!
Looking forward to your reply,
This site is not about Weiss Schwarz. This is my homebrew Magic the Gathering set based on Madoka.
However, I will answer your question.
Trial deck cards that can also be found in booster packs only have a two digit collector number like MM/W17-TE01. However, if the trial deck card has three digits in the collector number, such as MM/W17-TE101 then it’s a card that’s unique to the trial deck and can’t be obtained from a booster pack.
Thanks for the reply. I guess i’ll just have to keep searching for a set list somewhere..
I like what I see so far. Though I suggest you change the Creature type “Magic Girl” To something else (Puella?). When two words are separated on the typeline, then it’s two different types. “Magic Girl” is not one creature type, its two. “Magic” and “Girl”. I realize that’s not how you intended it, but it is part of the format of Magic Cards.
I understand your concern, but I’ve not found an elegant way to reduce “mahou shoujo” to a single word in English that correctly conveys both meaning and flavor. “Puella” is just latin for “girl” and honestly, if this was being made a legit magic set their types would probably be Human Cleric for Mami, Human Wizard for Homura, Human Knight/Warrior/Barbarian for Sayaka, Human Warrior/Barbarian for Kyouko and Human Archer for Madoka. Or maybe just drop the Human to convey the fact that…well they aren’t actually human in some ways and they’ve been reduced to their job types like the Phyrexians.
Part of what I’m trying to accomplish in this set is showing how Magic might look if it was designed similarly to how Japanese TCGs are designed. If that means I have to break a few rules of standard Magic to convey the right feel then I’m ok with a two-word type. I’d considered Magic-Girl, but that’s just awkward. At the end of the day I have to work within the limitations of the language and sometimes the right noun just has to be two words. It’s my personally ruling (because it’s my set) that Magic Girl is not two types, but only one type.
I think you should at least be happy I didn’t go all the way down the route that Japanese TCGs go for their creature types because in those games you’ll see types like “School Uniform” “Glasses” “Candy” “Swimsuit” “Kimono” and in Weiss Schwarz, Madoka and company aren’t the “Magic Girl” type, they’re the “Magic” type.
I’m open to suggestions if you can think of something else, but until then I’m sticking with Magic Girl. I’ve got more Madoka cards on my Tumblr.
Perhaps “Magica” type?
