Watch: Gavin Verhey Talks About His 5 Favorite Magic: The Gathering Cards He Designed

 

Wizards of the Coast's Senior Magic: The Gathering Designer Gavin Verhey has launched a new YouTube channel called Good Morning Magic, and in one of the first videos he released, he talked about his five favorite MTG cards he designed. They are Monastery Mentor, Teferi's Protection, Stunning Reversal, and Serene Remembrance. These are all unique cards that Verhey designed, and it's interesting to hear the stories behind their design. The most interesting to me was the fact that there's a lot of odd things in Yennett: power and toughness, converted mana cost, number of abilities, number of letters in each word of its name, and more.

Watch the video below, and check out Verhey's five favorite cards he designed below:

Verhey can design memorable Magic cards, and I enjoy hearing the stories about their design. You can watch me talk about the Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths card Verhey designed, Lavabrink Venturer.
