also the theme to the block is multicolored cards. the colors of planeswalkers we have the cards for are r/g, r/b, r/u, b/w and want the r/w planeswalker to be jor kadeen.

Why do you have 300-500 cards going to 1000? That is way too many especially for those of us who like to draft (such as myself). You will draft a card once, love it, and never see it again...
You should cut it down close to the usual set size around 250.

Also, don't double post. You can edit your first post to keep all the up to date information of your set.

im talking about an entire block. kronovar is the plane and first expansion. 2nd is krono raid.3rd is krono wrath. also i forgot that when you make a thread, the first part you put there isnt a description.

1000 is still too much for a block. Having too many cards takes attention away from the individual cards you have worked so hard to design. I would think that 750 would be tops but I would try not to go that far even unless you have a 4 set block.

i know but my friend nykromantyk(who i know in real life) told me that itd be awsome to make 1000 cards in the block. besides thats my maximum number and there are some expansions with 300-350 cards in them. plus there are going to be both intro decks AND duel decks. but i do think you're right about 1000 being alot BUT if we dont challenge ourselves, what left is there asides from standard robotic routine.

It is not about challenge. It is about the size being so large that your audience would not be able to fully enjoy it. The only way that 1000 cards could even be possible is if you did 4 sets in teh block with 250 each but even then it is just too many cards. My point is that if you have people cracking packs they bought or for draft it makes getting the cards they want extremely rare. Making a lot of cards is not hard. Making a well designed block is that is not too small or too overstuffed is.
