Spellbook Builder / Re: My spellbook builder

Can the Druid use the Ring of the Ocean's Depths? It's water Mage only opposed to Siren only but its N/A for Druid in the builder even tho she is trained in level 1 water spells. Not sure if this is a rules misunderstanding on my part or an oversight in the builder, thanks in advance for clarification!

Thank you very very very much for all of your hard work on this.

I forgot how useful an up to date spellbooks builder could be! I love being able to pull up any card's stats when I want to clarify or check on something without pulling out all my cards.

Again, much gratitude to you for all the work you have done thus far as well as the work you continue to put into this as additional features are requested & bugs are found.

Awesome card arts! These are altogether awesome ideas/cards/abilities! Would love a shifter focused Mage.

Spells / Re: Mordok's tome

Fun fact: the art for Mordok's Tome is a combination of the art on the 2 spellbooks that came with the first edition of the game. My 11 year old just pointed that out to me this morning.

Aaron posted the following on a recent BGG thread that was speculating on the next Arena expansion.

"I'm almost 100% positive the next expansion will have Frost damage spells in it. It's something we originally meant to have back in Druid vs. Necromancer, but it ended up not fitting with the Mage we were making. However, unless something pretty drastic happens I'd expect Freeze/Frost Damage to be in the next set."

My Google fu is failing me, can someone link me to these Mage cast episodes? I'm almost done reslistening to the MWM podcasts & am intrigued by this, thanks in advance!

The books may eventually go into production, but right now we have bigger priority items on the plate. Spellbooks as an accessory haven't been huge sellers and we still have stock of Spellbook packs 2, 3, and 4 available for purchase.

We don't have our sights on supplemental product right now, we're focusing on actual game expansions.

I am 250 thousand percent behind this statement. The book art is nice, but I'm way more interested in more Mage Wars cards/content.

You don't technically need the binders. They help when you're starting out and don't know your own spell books that well, buy after that they just make cleaning up after a game more of a chore.

I am actually quite fond of the physical spellbooks. I realize Academy decks are pretty small & would be an easily managed pile of cards, but you lose some of that tactical Mage Wars feel without them.

I enjoy the post match cleanup discussion where we talk about the tactics & strategies we employed that match while putting the spells back into our books. I'm fairly OCD about having all the spells in my books laid out just so & in a certain order so maybe I am in the minority here lol. Plus I'm fairly lucky in that putting the spellbooks back together is really the only cleanup involved for the game since I play on a dedicated arena table that always has a play mat & Plano full of tokens ready for some Mage Wars action.

I may be new to the forums here, but I've owned & played Mage Wars with self built custom books for years & have no desire to phase out the spellbook portion of the experience. To each their own.  :)

I was pretty bummed when Tony said those books would not go into production. I guess academy isn't selling well enough to warrant more supplemental product support.  :(

That's awesome that they intend to make OP kit promos Academy compatible!

Conjurations were left out of academy as a design choice indeed, however page 18 of the rule book states that they will be in Academy eventually.

"Attack spells sometimes say “creature or conjuration” in the target line. A conjuration is a type of spell that will be revealed in future Academy expansions."
