Alright, opening this up for discussion now. If you're unfamiliar with the frames or mechanics involved, see here: http://wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/157b

Current Progress:
The regular frames and template are complete. Be sure to thank Shiv for doing the hard part!

Most templates that are requested are never made. Why? There are a couple of reasons. First, if you're doing a custom game out of your own imagination, most templaters aren't going to be interested in making it for you. In my personal experience, custom game designers that happen in here are doing it on a whim, and don't really want to put forth the effort required for this sort of thing. Often, they lose interest, and any work the templater has done is then wasted. Second, many people who request a template for an existing game are again not interested in doing the work. Here's some information about what is required to make a template for game that already exists.

I'm working with a Force of Will template (the card game, no the game card) and I realize that the flavor text on Force of Will cards are center-aligned rather than italicized, so I went in and found M:tG's flavor_text_filter() definition. The problem now is that I don't know what the tag to center-align the text is; I've tried <center>, <center-text>, and <center-flavor> but with no avail. Is there a tag for this? If so, what is it?

I noticed that if you use Phyrexian mana, the reminder text ("H/U can be paid with either U or 2 life".) doesn't pop up.

I mocked this up in about 10 seconds. I want it to also be able to have mana symbols in that box if possible. Thanks.

I'd like to request an update on the "Clear Gods" template to be made for the M15 card frame. Is this something that could be done? I'm wondering because I want to use it for a set that I am currently developing but I would prefer it to be in the M15 style.

Hi Everyone,

New to the program and forum here and loving the program so far, wanted to know if anyone has made a D&D 5e set or template for the cards at all?

Hello there, people.

Just a fast question, and I hope im not breaking any rules. As you know, Wizards released this new mechanic called Embalm, and with it, some nice, new Tokens with larget text-boxes. Is there anything like that as a template for MSE? If someone knows, I would be really glad that you point me which one is.

Thank you for reading, any help is greeted.

Are there any plans to implement the new card color circles?

For reference, old ones look like this:
