Normal Download Link
Only use the following file if you are updated M15 Extra and/or New Extra, and only move the style files for templates you have. If these folders are not used to patch, they will crash MSE.
Download Including M15 and New Extra changes

What's All This Then?
This is an update to the base watermarks file, the identity file, and the blend scripts for the base templates, M15 Extra and New Extra. For watermarks, it adds the Story Spotlight watermark which is scripted to card color, darkens the Tarkir watermarks so they are more visible, adds the Alara watermarks that were posted to reddit awhile back. It also changes the scripting for 3, 4, and 5 color indicators so they are pie-shaped instead of striped as shown on the Grimlock transformer.

Well What Do I Do With This?
Download and extract the zip file and move the files into your Magic Set Editor 2/data files. They'll overwrite a handful of files and you'll be good to go. The indicators should apply to every template, but a handful of templates that use their own watermarks files won't be able to use the new ones yet. Point them out as they show up and I'll add its update.

EDIT: The patches can cause MSE to crash if you don't have the original template. The new download link only has the base files, and the second download link has the patch files. If you have downloaded the original link and it causes MSE to crash, delete the near-empty magic-new-extra.mse-style and/or magic-m15-extra.mse-style folders from you Magic Set Editor/data folder.

Minor issue: If you don't have the specific templates that this changes the style files for, MSE will crash when you try to open the Style tab, since it creates a style file in a new folder but nothing else, so the style file tries to bring up the card-sample.png that doesn't exist among other things.

Phasing
This phases in or out before you untap during each of your untap steps. While it's phased out, it's treated as though it doesn't exist.

@HerziQuerzi My MSE is definitely crashing. I know I have M15 Extra, but I don't think I have New Extra. What can I do to fix that? Do i just download New Extra?

Delete the New Extra folder you got from this is preferable, downloading new extra will overwrite the changes but will also fix it. Will upload a folder without these styles shortly.

Fixed a bug where the Tarkir watermarks were pointing at the wrong folder. Download links are the same.

What I found about your watermarks update is that part of the update is not implemented.
There are images to have watermarks for Innistrad provinces, Theros' cities and a couple more but they are not included in the watermarks list.

Also, do you have any ideas on how to solve the problem with the Mardu watermark and the likes? Know if it could be done modifying a single file or would it be needed to modify every template?

Would adjusting the size of the watermark box be a solution or would it create far more issues with the image size required or with positioning?

You would have to modify every template to change the size of it's watermark field. The current plan is to release a template that will be able to adjust for these before year's end.

oh shoot, those were on my list when I uploaded, dunno how they fell off. Main links are updated, here is a patch link. Also adding the M15 Extra watermark update to the full download while I'm here.
