Savor the Flavor

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Savor the Flavor was a column that appeared weekly on DailyMTG.com. Written by members of the Magic: The Gathering Creative Team (mainly Matt Cavotta and Doug Beyer), it explored the creative process behind the flavor, including card art, flavor text, card names, world-building, books, comics, and the foundations of Magic: the Gathering on fantasy. Until August 2008, it was called Taste the Magic. It was replaced in 2012 by the Uncharted Realms column.
