Bogavhati Quiz

Posted in Feature on May 14, 2009

By Wizards of the Coast

We've got something special for you today. Mark Rosewater was rummaging through his hard drive, and he turned up something incredible: the original design file for the Magic set codenamed "Bogavhati", which ended up as Tempest. This file is full of cards that were eventually printed in Tempest and later sets. There's even one card that was printed in Weatherlight, the set before Tempest!

These cards were created by the Bogavhati Design Team: Mark Rosewater, Richard Garfield, Mike Elliott, and Charlie Catino.

So what we're going to do today is show you a few of the Boghavati cards, then show you what they turned into. Ready? Let's go!
