Yes, the process you described is exactly how it usually goes. You would send your end out including both cards to be altered and payment, and I will work on the alters once I’ve received. I would expect them to take a few days, likely around three or four, to complete. Once I’ve finished them, I’ll send you some images of the result and you can let me know what you think. Of course I can make changes if needed. Once you’re satisfied, I’ll send the alters to you, double sleeved in a top loader, via usps with tracking (assuming Corona virus permits me to leave my house, otherwise I guess it would be through regular mail).
Just let me know what cards you have available and I’ll let you know what I’m thinking as far as payment is concerned.

Well I don’t generally do mockups or anything like that, but it’s not off the table. As for the initial concept, since we’re re dealing with original art here, is there a particular type of spider you prefer for the Thantis, the Warweaver alter? I was thinking something that puts emphasis on a web in the foreground that would be done in foil, with a spider dramatically perched on the web, or perhaps dangling from a thread above. There could also perhaps be weapons entrapped in the web as well?
The first thing that comes to mind, actually, is Shelob from Lord of the Rings. I could do a character alter like that if you like the idea.

Based on my list, you may have presumed I’m working on colorless Eldrazi (hence the Ugin), but it’s actually Amulet with KarnGC and wishboard haha. That said, I’d definitely be interested in doing the 2 alters, and I’m open to getting the Ugin involved as well if that’s something you’d like to do. :)
As far as fetches are concerned, the main ones I’m missing are Wooded Foothills, Marsh Flats, and Verdant Catacombs, so I’d be interested in any combo of those. I’ll also take Strands, Deltas, and Mires if you prefer to trade those or don’t have any of the others.

Hey maxon! I'd certainly be up for doing that alter for you. It'd be $35, since it's both foil and alternate art. As for a list of cards I'm looking for at the moment:
Barring that, feel free to make suggestions. I am more than willing to take a look through your binder (Your one here on T/O is out of date). If all else fails, I do still take cash of course. :)

I think if they wanted to do a fundraiser it would be themed on hope and renewal or the eradication of disease, not a reminder that we could all be harbingers of death.

Hey sorry for late response. Global Crisis and all. I like where your head is at with I inspiration of art. How would you like to proceed with everything once we work out the details of what cards I can offer as payment. Do I send you all cards involved and then you keep the cards intended as payment and you send the alters back when done? How long do you expect the alters to take?

I love Lurking Predators for this deck. Void winnower is a bit much. I don't like effects that limit other players from playing their deck. Goblin Drums is also a great idea. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm gonna be on the lookout for those two now.

I'll see what fetches I have this weekend since I work Monday through Friday. As far as the art goes, how does that part play out with regard to initial concept and final product. I have never had an alter done so not at all familiar with the process.

Yeah, I haven't traded on here since the binder view changed. My first inclination since you are open to fetches is to go that route. I have a number of them, and really only play casual anymore so I could let some go. Another high dollar card I could let go of would be Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.
If you're interested in ugin maybe I'd do two alters, with ugin and some number of fetches. The other alter I'd be interested in doing is Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle.

Hey buddy. If you're still up for doing alters I'd like to talk about doing a Thantis, the Warweaver alter. I hate the card's art, but love the build I've got going. I'd want a completely different art, and would want to keep all the existing information boxes intact or at least readable.
I was wondering if you'd take cards for the work. I'd be willing to give you more value in cards than you would get in straight cash. Depends on if you have any high dollar cards on your wish list that I happen to have.
