Here's volumes 1, 2, and 3. And here's volume 4!

 

Gone Missing

An Ingenious Thief dares to Ransack your Treasure Trove, and they Sweep Away with Stolen Goods. You're left Mourning in the Dregs of Sorrow. But don't Abandon Hope; not all is Totally Lost.

Consonants Only: Alpha Edition

Following are the names of Magic cards with all vowels, spaces, and punctuation removed. For instance, THRSTRM would be "Æther Storm" (and not "the restroom," which fits but is not a Magic card.) See how many you can figure out! To help, only cards from Alpha have been used. 

1. TMWLK

2. TG

3. PSNCBLST

4. BDMN

5. RLMNTL

6. PRLC

7. STSS

8. HLRMR

9. THDNTRLL

10. FRCFNTR

11. WLLFR

12. CSTRM

(Careful with #2—Atog was in Antiquities, not Alpha.)

3. Buried Dreams

4. Carnal Forge

5. Child's Play

Some planeswalkers loaned each other their favorite books, and they can't remember which are which. Can you identify each based on their artwork?

 

 

 

More Missing Links

In each set of three, all items in the set are card titles missing the same word. The word may appear anywhere in each item. For example, in the set Piledriver, Festering, Mons's Raiders, the missing word "goblin" would form the three cards Goblin Piledriver, Festering Goblin, and Mons's Goblin Raiders. The word may also have a space inserted into it, such as the word "eat" completing "Fire at Will."

1. blazer, post, aven chaser

2. dance, connoisseur, corpulent

3. battle medic, force, quarantine

4. diligent hand, stead, coat os

5. exee, stlemutt, mistter hydra
