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.

So there's a function I've been trying to use in one of my templates, but can't quite seem to make sense of.
The documentation for it is incredibly sparse, with only the following lines present to act as an example.

invert_image(input: image)
invert_image("image_logo.png") == [[Image]]

Try as I might, I can't figure out a way to slot them into any part of my pre-existing code, as I just don't understand how it's supposed to be implimented.
The ideal scenario I'm looking for is to have the invert image function toggle depending on another variable (rarity, card-border, etc.) for ease

Has anyone made YuGiOh link templates? I'm working on compiling a set of all the good YuGiOh templates and I can't find a link one.

Out of curiosity, is there any project working on the template Ixalan's DFC lands use? (More specifically, I want the land side, whether a standalone or as a DFC setup.)

I'm looking for a template for the Conspiracy 2 Monarch token (seen). It's got a unique clear border with a centered name box (as opposed to the top aligned name box on regular tokens). My searches haven't turned up anything, so it might have just been overlooked during the busy season around CN2's launch.

I don't know how to format text here so I just made it a PDF. Here's a tutorial to make color fonts (fonts with actual colored characters) work in Photoshop. I hope it will help you ease all the pain from manually adding those wacky symbols and coloring them.

I am really confused. Is it currently being planned/in the works for the current MSE.
Any comment will be appreciated.

Hey all,

I've got a new mechanic on the horizon that features creatures transforming into auras. I'd love some sort of sweet template for the backside akin to the map lands in Ixalan. I don't have any specific ideas or parameters, so anyone who's up to the challenge has free reign on the design! I can also (attempt to) implement the template if need be, so really what I need is just the design. Let me know if you can help me out. A happy smile
