I'm just wondering, are we allowed to add anything relating to the Un-sets on this page? Given that the cards themselves are jokes that aren't intended to mingle with the main formats, should anything about them be recorded here?

I think that probably Unstable is okay as long as you clarify that it's a joke set, as it does have at least something resembling a story. Unglued and Unhinged are probably not unless you're referencing a trope - especially a humor-related one.

In the description of Magic the Gathering Arena, there is a statement that Wizards May be replacing Magic Online with Arena. This is totally absurd and blatantly false. Arena will only support Standard, none of the Eternal formats Magic Online is very commonly used for will be supported - it would be totally ridiculous to suggest that Wizards is going to apply the Arena-level quality of animation, and voice acting for some, for all the cards in Magicís history. Also, Arena wonít have an internal economy the way Magic Online does, which is an essential part of Magic Onlineís formula. I propose to remove the line suggesting Arena will replace Magic Online

Touhou Characters

Okay, this may sound kind of weird, but... I can't help but feel like some of the characters in Touhou might actually be color-coded for the 5 colors in here to add as further examples of the alignments (or whatever you'd call them).

Reimu is a White/Red Hot-Blooded Miko, Marisa is a technical White/Black Anti-Hero, Youmu is Green/Black (although it's mostly white and white can mean death in Japan, she does have a black ribbon tied around her head), the Scarlet sisters are Black from being vampires and seem to have a Red Oni, Blue Oni thing going on, so yeah. ^^; Even Yuuka seems to at least be Red/Green, if not Black/Green or Black/Red/Green as a very violent youkai who has... power over flowers. :p

It makes a lot of sense, right? XD If you'll want to add any Touhou characters as examples in the Analysis page, give this some thought.

Okay, serious question: Is there a way to find out how many images on trope pages an individual work has?

Because outside of maybe XKCD, Order of the Stick, and Cyanide and Happinesss, Magic probably has the most page images I've seen of any work. I'm glad, because the art is pretty damn good.

I don't know, but I fell that we should also have a system to determine how many wicks a trope has and a quick search to find those pages. It would make it easier if say a trope's name changes. Both are practical.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
