Addendum Updates

I guess I've missed posting a few of these here...

We're up to Kaladesh now, and that includes Conspiracy too! (update will be live by 9/29/2016)

Some other new updates include a further streamlining of the introduction / updates section. Tons of new terms. Navigation / duplication fixes (hopefully these were not a problem for you). And revisions of many definitions.

I've recently learned that your version of the Addendum will not update automatically, much to my dismay. I had really hoped that all new content and updates would get out to my readers free of charge, but, sadly, Amazon does not support free distribution of regular content upgrades. The book is always lending enabled so share with friends and just update occasionally. As always, the Addendum is available at the lowest price Amazon allows.

I'm working on an update to the publication, "Initiate to Adept" to include the new rules from Kaladesh and more about the changes we saw in BFZ, Oath, and the recent return to Innistrad. I2A is a book for beginners so there wont be anything new about Conspiracy or any other "unusual" formats. This will be the first significant I2A update since it first came out at the end of 2014! It's a busy time for me but the update should be live for both print and e-pub versions by the end of September, 2016.

Thanks, everyone, for your continued interest!

- Game On!!!

Shadows over Innistrad - Addendum Update

Yes, we're returning to Innistrad!

New definitions include new keywords from this set as well as some commonly used MTG slang. More peripheral definitions related to the new stuff have been added to round it out.

I finally made some time to go through and revise some of the wording that was a little clunky so you'll find a good number of definitions are now even easier to understand.

This update should be live by April 8th 2016 at the very latest.

Thanks Everyone!

Oath / Addendum - Updated!

Kind of a short list for new keywords this time but I added in some other definitions that are relevant to the new keywords. It looks like the new set has some cards designed for Two-Headed Giant but I'm not aware of any new 'team-up' rules that affect any other format. Let me know if you've heard about anything like that.

I just pushed the update, literally just now so... it should be 'live' in 24 hours or less, that will be 8:45am EST on 1/23/2016.

I'm looking forward to more Eldrazi diversity and new Ally mechanics, should be powerful fun!

Thanks for reading and... Read More Meta!

Oath of the Gatewatch update for Addendum

I'm getting the necessary information together for the e-pub update now, it should be published by prerelease. Also considering making a printed version available called "Year 1" -or something to that effect, once the update is complete.

I'd love to get some feedback on what you think about having a hard copy, due to the nature of the publication I think an annual or twice annually update to the print version may be possible and appropriate, it seems questionable because there have been so many updates in just the first year. The new structure WOTC has created with 2-set blocs and no core product might allow for a relaxed update schedule of say... twice a year? Please send your thoughts to

Thanks for reading, and as always, Read More Meta!

Commander Update

I AM planning on releasing an update to the Adept's Addendum for the upcoming Commander release. I'm still waiting on spoilers to find out what's new.

Update - 11/15/2015 Sorry everyone, the release of commander 2015 has taken me by surprise, I thought it would not be available until December. I'll be working on an Addendum update non stop to get it out as soon as possible. I'll update this post once it's published.

Update - (A few hours later...) It seems there is only one new keyword and one new mechanic, but I also found that I had missed keywords from previous Commander releases. They are all included now. The publishing process can take up to 24 hours to update, so by this time (3:45pm EST) tomorrow (11/16/2015) the latest additions should be 'live'.

Thanks again, everyone, for your patience and support!

Branching Out

I'm looking for a Print on Demand service that will print on a BCW style storage box. I'm hoping to offer decorated boxes at a low low price. The designs I'm working on now are for the individual colors of magic, eventually I'd like to have several designs available for each color and for each of the guilds and shards.

These designs may also wind up on apparel eventually.

If anyone can help me find a POD that handles inexpensive, quality storage boxes (like the BCW line) please e-mail me at!

Update 11/6/2015 : I've exhausted the options I was able to find. At this time there does not appear to be a service available which could make this line of products as I had hoped. I'll keep turning the idea over, maybe an alternative method will come to me.

Addendum Update for Battle for Zendikar

Just published.... it should be available within 24 hours. Plenty of time to get it prior to pre-release. Some of the new keywords are (at this time) very easy to define, so don't mind the short ones.

I've started settling in to the format of this publication and I'm pretty happy with it, so not much has changed regarding how the book is laid out.

I did include a lot of definitions I used in the 2015 Almanac, so there's more new content than the FIVE NEW KEYWORDS!!! Five!!!!! Awesome sauce....

As always, any suggestions for improving this, or any other MetaCAT Pub are welcome, enjoy!
