Andy from Lucky Paper here with another installment of our extremely infrequent, hopefully bearable newsletter, from which you can unsubscribe if you wish.
Our Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths and Commander 2020 set prospective articles are both up, and I am happy to say that you are the first to hear about it! We'll be posting on social media tomorrow, but I'm making an effort to ensure subscribers to this newsletter are always the first to know when we publish something new. Thanks for responding to our survey and helping us make these prospectives.
Building Lucky Paper is not unlike building a cube. With each new article I also make little improvements to parts of the site that have been bothering me — just like how a big update to my cube when a new set comes out also tends to include a few other, older cards that I have changed my mind about. A combination of new and exciting stuff and small, incremental improvements to the foundation that is already there. With the addition of the latest prospectives I've also made some improvements to the graphs we create for the results of each survey, including a change to how they're scaled. Up until this point, each graph was scaled to make the most effective use of the available space, with the graph cropped differently depending on the data represented. Now that we have four prospectives, I think it's more important that the graphs can be compared from set to set, telling a bigger story about the overall shape of an expansion in addiiton to highlighting the rank and conensus of the indvidual cards contained within. So now, all the graphs have a fixed range. The means a lot more negative space on some of them, but it allows you to visually see just how excited cube designers were about Throne of Eldraine, and conversely how indifferent they are about Commander 2020.
If you have any feedback about the site please let me know! Like a cube, it will always be a work in progress, but hopefully it will continue to get a little better with every article.
