Fan Works

Viridian's Last Mission and Revolution

Viridian's Last Mission is a fan-made expansion for Magic: the Gathering based on classic Spy films and supervillain troupes. It features three original keyword mechanics, 276 original cards, full art and flavor text, and support for Draft, Sealed, and Constructed play. It's been playtested and refined for more than a year and has had collaborative input from a full community of fellow designers and playtesters.

Viridian's Last Mission is also part of the fanmade Constructed format Revolution: Custom Standard. I serve as a curator and organizer for the format, which has more than 50 active players each month. The curator team has the responsibility to organize monthly "Grand Prix" events and balance the format in response to card and deck performance.
