We need another person to combine and auto-kern ~50 fonts into 2 fonts using FontForge or similar.
We could compile 98% of Beleren Bold (Used for card name & type) and Beleren SmallCaps-Bold (Used for artist credit) using pdf extracts. I've found 4 PDFs which each contain a subset of the Beleren font. Each PDF also has FR, IT, DE, ES, and PT versions, which cover different letters than their EN counterparts and also include accents. It would take a lot of work, but it's feasible.
Edit - here's how to get the fonts:
http://wizards.com/ContentResources/Wiz ... _en_US.pdf
For the above url, modify the suffix for each language: fr_FR, de_DE, it_IT, es_ES, pt_BR
Next visit http://wpn.wizards.com/en/resources/rules-documents and download all the documents containing the Beleren Font.
Next change the language code in the previous url to each of FR, IT, DE, ES, and PT and download the translated documents.
Lastly download and unzip MuPDF to C:\mupdf\
Place the PDFs in this directory
Run windows "cmd".
Type "cd C:\mupdf"
Type "mutool.exe extract input.pdf", where input.pdf is one of the pdfs you downloaded.
Collect all files with "Beleren" in their name.
Edit: Oh I forgot to mention the most important thing -
Use MuPDF 1.4, not 1.5! There seems to be a bug in the new version. I suggest MuPDF because it seems to extract all of the fonts that Font Forge can't.

But I'm running in some issues:
- As I said, some of the letter <==> glyph association was lost.
- FontForge's Windows client keeps crashing and I don't know if I can merge things via CLI, specially for the ones that are not associated.
If you can help, I can try and progress further.

I've read that Font Forge for Windows is glitchy like that. We might need somebody who has paid, quality typographer's software. I think there are people floating around MTG Salvation. I can reach out to them and see if they'd assemble the fonts. If you extract the foreign pdf fonts too, zip them up, and post them, I'll post the archive for them to take a look.
It looks like there are a few more than 24 after all, I'm guessing 36 ish.

I just need to figure out how to add the variants of the lowercase letters that close words.

Fun fact: yesterday I knew NOTHING about glyph variants and all of that.
While assembling the ripped font I discovered that all the ttf who lost the association had those odd Final alternate Glyphs in them, which paired with my obsessive curiosity led me to learn all that cr... stuff.
Creating the Beleren rip might have been superfluous in some aspects, but not all, apparently.

uniFB03 uniFB04 are the ligatured version of "FFI" and "FFL"

Do you know how to add the end glyphs to the font? What software did you use? Personally, I am using FontCreator 5.6, which admittedly is like 7 years old now.

For example: act oN iMpulse (can be seen very clearly on the higher-res image from M15 spoilers), mass calciFy, pHyrexiaN revoker, necromancer's stocKpile, etc.
There might be more gotchas, but so far I've only discovered this one. Also, I've no idea about small caps verions since any text in that font is nigh unreadable on Gatherer images.
