Amonkhet Styles - Aftermath and Invocations

While we wait for the Snake god to be revealed in about six weeks, I rebuilt the Aftermath frames from the better references. Supports hybrid/multicolor/artifact, identities and tombstones, doesn't have land frames or p/t boxes. The bottom frame hybrid is 'sideways' but you can set the blending to vertical to put it normally. Let me know if there's any bugs or complaints other than the general design of Amonkhet frames.

Rhonas finally decided to show his ugly mug, so Invocations is now a go:


Name and cost cartouches are fully scripted, and there is a style option to snap to the name or extend it for nonexistent mana costs. There is a casting cost field at the beginning of the typeline that can be used as an identity dot, since they appear to just be using the mana symbol.

The glyphs and a few new ones have been mapped to these keys for those who want the full invocation. As far as I can tell, the only rule is that the names/types start and end with | and the rest is random. For those who hate this font, there is a style option to use Beleren or Papyrus instead.

Additional style options are Silver Border that turns the gold border silver, normal rarity which shows the normal symbol instead of the nested watermarks, and Masterpiece rarity which gives the cards a separate collector number and with minor modification lets them show up in packs as Masterpieces. Currently, these Masterpiece still use the same symbol as the set and are still listed as common/uncommon/rare, which will be addressed in Mainframe. Those solutions are a bit too involved for this template.Due to an oversight, this is not working properly and has been temporarily removed.

Download and Install Instructions

Are these templates that high res or is my phone playing tricks on me?

There are some very high res UBR splits but I mostly used the basic m15 frames to make the frame consistent.

I figured you just spliced together some m15 templates. Looks good!

Nice. I made a card:

So, restart the game with the same life totals as before.

I know Amonkhet only has instant and sorcery aftermath cards, but I'd like the option to make creatures. Do you think it would be possible to add a P/T box?

It's mostly an aesthetic issue (and aftermath not working with creatures), they get really cramped with p/t boxes on top of the rest. I'll look into an update for that and colored borders after finals.

Invocation frame is finally up, previews and links in op.

There is also the issue of creatures, lands, and artifacts tapping. As long as only one half is a permanentit will be fine, but otherwise you get the same problem with flip cards in that you can't tell with is which.

I completely agree. For my design idea I was only going to make the top half of the card a permanent and the bottom half either an instant or sorcery. This would follow the typical tap and untapped framing with the art upright when untapped.

Is there a relatively quick and dirty way to get these Invocation mana symbols to display in the mana cost for another frame? They'd be perfect for a masterpiece idea I have for a block I'm working on but right now they look off only appearing in the text box.

In the mana cost field of your template you also need to use magic-mana-small-invocations.mse-symbol-font. I don't know of a template that lets you swap out the main cost symbols but if it has that, make a copy of that folder except replace 'small' with 'large'.

Thanks, I was able to poke around and that's worked a treat.

Using a token like Mouth to Feed is probably better than trying to make part of it a creature.

Hi, sorry but for some reason the Invocations style isn't working. I keep getting this error:

Variable not set: is_masterpiece
in function position
in function card_number
in function card_number_m15

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I would say redownload the zip first. The cause of that would be a specific line being corrupted. I just redownloaded it to check and everything's working until I change that line. If it's still broken we can try to fix your style or I can upload a masterpiece-less version.

Aight, I haven't been able to reliably replicate the issue, but I think it has to do with other templates not using the same sort function, so it gets a little screwy alongside other templates. If you are having this problem, here is the invocation folder without any masterpiece scripting. In a few days I'll see if some new functions will fix the issue, but my guess is this won't get fixed without additional mods and will have to wait for M15 Mainframe.

The aftermath frame doesn't support the land texture border. I made an aftermath card where the top part was a land, but I had to photoshop in the land border.

Also, is there any possibility of getting P/T added to the aftermath frame or at least the top half? Please.

Found the issue on Invocations, they were working due to a line of code I thought I deleted. As Masterpieces won't work in packs without several edits and only having the Masterpiece count on one frame screws up the numbers, it has been removed from Invocations, but Mainframe will return the functionality to this and all frames. This was supposed to be a preview of that but it's a bit complicated and I'd rather get all those edits in in one swoop. Here is the updated template with a default pack file for anyone who replaced theirs without a backup.

To-do list for Aftermath 1.1:
Land cards
Silver borders
See if pt boxes can get crammed somewhere

Anything else? Note that I can't start on this until at least next Wednesday.

I am curious. Where exactly is the download link for the Aftermath template? All I could find was the Invocation template.
