The Official Fantasy Card Design Thread

@ten-ten said in The Official Fantasy Card Design Thread:

how are these better than ceremonious rejection or Abrade/by force? Except for the fact your cards would be good in Shop decks.
Edit: Granted, you didn't say they would be better, my mind immediately just compared cards for the shop match-up.

Oh I don't know if they would be better, but I think the design is interesting. Being able to counter for free on the draw against Shops if they cast more than one spell is great.

Hidden Theif

If an opponent cast an instant this turn, -this- is free to cast, and gains "Hexproof"

If an opponent cast an artifact his turn, -this- is free to cast and gains "when this enters the battlefield destroy an artifact"

A dream card of mine:
Gruul Anti-Mage
When ~ enters the battlefield, you may reveal a non-land card from your hand; if you do, ~ deals 2 damage to target creature or player.
1, Sacrifice ~ : Destroy target artifact.

Dark lessons
Search your library for 3 cards, put one into your hand, one into your grave yard, shuffle your library and put the last card on top of your library.

@busoftheundead nope.... way too good. Manamorphose, Chromatic Star, GG

1B - Eveningtide
Remove all cards in all graveyards from the game.

Would be great to be able to beat Dredge with Burning Wish; at least slow them down a turn or two so you can beat them with something else. I don't think Morningtide is very strong, but I wouldn't complain if it were an option in a better color.

tap, discard a card; add 1 mana of any color to your mana pool
tap, discard a card; scry 1

@desolutionist beating dredge with burning wish typically involves wish targets like yawgmoth's will or tendrils of agony, both of which are quite adequate to the task.

anyway, dug up this thread to post something complicated that would never be printed but i felt was clever:
LEGENDNAME, boneyard Humus 3GBB
legendary creature-elemental(spirit?)
exile a creature card from your graveyard:you gain 1 life and each opponent loses 1 life
if LEGENDNAME would die exile it instead
shuffle LEGENDNAME into your library from exile: put any number of cards you own from exile into your graveyard
the dead make fertile soil for further poisons

What would Vintage do with this:

WBRG - Enchantment
At the beginning of your upkeep, you win the game.

How playable is that? If playable, how warping would it be? If too warping, would it be playable as a restricted card? It might get blue decks off Misstep, Blast, and Flusterstorm anyway.

@bazaarofbaghdad If it's not playable, then it's irrelevant. If it is playable, then doesn't it just make Misstep more important because it stops the T1 mana dork you're using to accelerate this out t2?

@bazaarofbaghdad I'm not convinced it's playable. 4 mana of that many different colors is going to be absurdly hard to cast, and anything that can cheat it in can cheat something better in(something with immediate effect, like griselbrand/bargain/omni). if you want a 4 mana nonblue spell that wins you the game if you untap with it, there's already things that come pretty close in the form of planeswalkers like chandra, torch of defiance that also do something the turn you play them and are easier to cast. for things without immediate effect, oath of druids seems to be better than this.

the card that I wanted to see in blattlebond !!!
