Q: What surprises you the most about the Magic community as a whole?

--Matt P.

A: From Mark Rosewater, Magic Head Designer

I am constantly surprised by how giving the Magic community is as a community. There is a genuine sense of good will and a desire to help one another. In many ways the Magic community acts more like a family than a series of acquaintances with a common interest. I am very proud to be part of the Magic community.

Q: "What was the idea behind the spellbombs and how do they work in the story?"

--Levi Campbell, Sterling Colorado

A: From Brady Dommermuth, Magic creative director:

Levi, spellbombs are sort of Mirrodin's version of potions, except instead of drinking them, you break them to release the spell energy magically sealed inside. (Mirrodin tends to do things a little differently than most planes.)
