Since the set likes +1/+1 counters, it seems to me that Call to War would make more sense if it gave one instead of a temporary buff.
Also, I like the feel of augment, but please don't do what Wizards did to poor battalion. All that turned out to be was a bunch of mediocre creatures that became decent in a group, when it should have been decent creatures that got better in a group. I look forward to seeing some of the uncommon and rare augment creatures.
As for glisten, I agree with what Horseshoe_Hermit has said, but I feel like the first spell clause is good enough to break crazy combos. It's debatable whether that is a solid mechanic, however, we all know how miracle turned out. Have you considered trading the first spell clause for diminishing returns? I'm interested to see where this goes.

Aug 11, 2013Eric 1(W/U)(W/U)Posted in: Custom Card Contests and Games
Legendary Creature - Human
Pay 1 life, T: Draw a card.
During your upkeep, target opponent gains control of another creature you control of your choice. If you control no other creatures, you lose 5 life and target opponent gains control of Eric.
"Everything's gonna be fine? Nothing's fine. I don't know if you noticed this, but... everything's been getting worse... every second."
Next: Let's see how this works, I'm going to request a series of five. Each person that does one, do one of the other four remaining characters from the new Evil Dead, then suggest the next character to do. Once we have all five of them, the last person gets to do a commander based on the acrostic formed by the group's names. Let's continue with the one I probably should have done first (if we go by the acrostic): David.
Aug 2, 2013Well, I'll keep things going. I don't know much about Sword of the New World, but it's loosely based on the Age of Exploration, which I am familiar with.Posted in: Custom Card Contests and Games

Next: The last character you'd think of as a MtG commander.
Jul 24, 2013Ol' Swampy here was a toughie, even though he's a swamp thing, he's absolutely mono-green to me. Making him brings to light one of the few issues I have with a core element of MtG: swamps are verdant places teeming with life,as much or more so than any forest, rather than the murky grimy places of death that they are depicted as in much of the game. Just an observation to think about.Posted in: Custom Card Contests and Games
Anyhoo, on to the card!
