Change the art for MODO Holiday Cube back to the original artwork, see the Power 9 in their true glory. This file reverts all “modernized” artwork back to it’s first printing. Truly a beautiful thing. Included as well is a skin to convert modern card frame into older border.

Holiday Cube Original Art Swap

By @MarcelMTG co-host of the Brainstorm Brewery podcast & host of Brewski Bistro stream

<<<12/30/13 – UPDATE: Ancestral Recall, Dark Ritual, Earthquake and Thoughtseize’s original art has been fixed, enjoy!>>>

 

****To restore default art settings launch “Kicker.exe” and select “Repair” on the main screen****

****This will only work with version 3 of MODO, it will not work with the beta version****

 

This zip contains the original art for every card that has newer art for the MODO Holiday Cube. Yes the original Power 9 is here so no longer will you glaze over a Mox because it looks like a generic charm. See iconic cards in their true form, well in a Modern border, but that can be “fixed” too. Included are Alternative Art & Promo Art folders with the different art for cards in the cube.

Included is a “skin” that switches Modern card frames to look like old border cards. Due to how the MODO client works the text boxes and art window have been adjusted to fit the Modern text alignment. Because Modern cards use black text instead of white, card names & card types can be difficult to read on darker card frames i.e Black and Artifacts. The skin also swaps dual lands so they look like the original dual with the two color text box. This does make reading the text difficult but it’s not like you need to do that anyways. Hybrid and Double Faced Cards and some others will still have a Modern border; those Art Swaps are still in development.

    Ancestral Recall original art not working it seems.

    a few mistakes noticed so far – ancestral recall and thoughseize still have the normal, new art. the earthquake art is not the original printing’s art.
