T: add one mana of any color to your mana pool
discard a card: untap CARDNAME

Jamuraa, Womb of Dominaria
Legendary Land
Each land is a Forest in addition to its other land types.


Thalia's CPA - WW
Creature - Human Advisor
Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, put 5 counters on Thalia's CPA.

Thalia's Stylist - 1W
Creature - Human Artist
Untap a card named Thalia, Heretic Cathar, transform Thalia's Stylist.
Thalia's Confidant
Creature - Human Advisor
If a card named Thalia, Heretic Cathar deals or receives damage, transform Thalia's Confidant

Thalia's Ex-Boyfriend 1W
Creature - Human Troll
If a card named Thalia, Heretic Cathar becomes tapped or blocks, tap target permanent controlled by Thalia, Heretic Cathar's controller.

@blindtherapy isn't there a card like this already? Used in Stasis.Dec
I forget the name..

@ten-ten this, uh, does not have a 1/turn rider, and discards rather than exiles. also untaps normally.

@vaughnbros said in The Official Fantasy Card Design Thread:

Soul Seal - 1B
When Seal of Souls enters the battlefield, return all exiled cards to their owner's graveyards.
Cards in graveyards can not be exiled.

This seems absolutely terrifying with Yawg Will.

Taxing Technology
Legendary Artifact
All of opponents artifacts cost 1 more. Abilities of all opponents artifacts cost 1 more.
All of opponents artifacts gain "pay 1 during your upkeep and end step, or sacrifice this permanent".

@blindtherapy So, it's basically better than Forsaken City, and card they were willing to print in Planeshift, in three ways. With the ETBT they may be able to get away with two of those upgrades in modern design, but would probably only do one.

@hierarchnoble eh, also make it a painland then.

@serracollector Nice design, but I would make it symmetrical, otherwise it's too good.

It would be symmetrical in the fact that everyone would run it in their 75?

Iquati Citadel
T: add <> to your mana pool
T, pay 1 life: add U to your mana pool
when CARDNAME is put into your graveyard from your library, you may put it onto the battlefield.

Magnetic Resonance - 2RR
If Magnetic Resonance is in your opening hand, you may reveal it and exile a red card from your hand. If you do, begin the game with Magnetic Resonance on the battlefield.
Activated abilities of artifacts can't be activated.

Has significant preventative capability in the early game (like Force of Will does).
Heavily incentives one colour thus encouraging that colours broadened usage (like Force of Will does).
Already established as a valued effect in game by the use of Null Rod (similar to how Force of Will is comparable to Counterspell)

Illusionary Deadlands
t, pay 1 life: add U or B
exile illusionary deadlands from your graveyard: exile your graveyard. return all cards exiled this way to your graveyard at the beginning of the next end step.

@mikenobull said in The Official Fantasy Card Design Thread:

Here is my entire text document of cards:

Magus of the Rod - 1W
Creature - Human Wizard
Activated abilities of artifacts can't be activated.

I like the green version with the callback to Brown Ouphe/Ouphe Vandals better, to be honest.

A fake Throne of Eldraine spoiler based on WotC's new favorite rare to print:

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo - [No Cost]
[Blue Color Indicator] Sorcery
You may reveal this card from your opening hand. If you do, you get an emblem with "You may look at the top card of your library at any time. You may play the top card of your library."
