    Target opponent may discard up to three cards. For each card less than three they discard, they lose 2 life.
    The cure can be just as bad as the condition

    Choose one or more of the following scenes from the Eragon series
    A young man, looking harried, stabs a shade through the heart, his sword ablaze while shards of crystal fall around the pair.
    A man wields a hammer and has just felled one of two bald men on a battlefield strewn with corpses, the other one's mouth twisted in a soundless scream. In the background, two swordsmen watch the scene, clearly pausing their duel to do so.
    An ancient elf is controlling a young man as she guides him through crafting a beautiful, iridescent blue sword, the mood is full of good tension as they create a powerful tool to fight for good.
    A man and his dragon partner are in awe as they enter a great vault, full of dragon eggs of all colors as well as the soul gems of hundreds of dragons.
    If you've read Eragon and you want to choose your own scene instead, please do, but describe it so I can recall it as well.

    Marwyn, pupil of Nissa 1GG
    Legendary Creature - Elf Druid
    As Marwyn, pupil of nissa enters the battlefield, Marwyn gains your choice of the following abilities:
    • Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, create a 1/1 green elf druid creature token with "T: add G"
    • Whenever you tap a land for mana, add G. Spend this mana only to cast creature or Planeswalker spells

    IIW: Choose an uncommon walker from WAR and turn them into a rare or mythic walker (static, plus, minus). I want at least one Kiora entry, since she's awesome.

    This also protects from if the opponent buffs their creature before the wolf starts to chow down, so you don't kill your wolfy friend.

  • posted a message on Help explain this situation with clone card please.
    It's important to understand that clones do not target, simply choose who they want to copy. Once the clone is on the battlefield, it is indistinguishable from the original creature, aside from all the ways a clone says it's different (eg: sakashima the impostor) So the clone copies all parts of the (creature in question), including getting to choose a new player with Sewer nemesis (so the clone could target opponent A, while the original nemesis targets opponent B). After that, the clone is treated exactly as the new creature is treated, including getting buffs when more creatures enter the graveyard.

    Menagerie goes off of CMC, not power, so that combo doesn't work.

    Garruk, claimed by curse 2BB
    Legendary Planeswalker - Garruk
    +1 - Untap two target Swamps
    -1 - Create a 2/1 black wolf creature token with deathtouch
    -4 - Creatures you control get +1/+1 and gain deathtouch until end of turn

    The wolf is based on his + ability in garruk, the veil-cursed, but increase in power is from me thinking it might be weak as a -1.

    Or pick a guild non-creature rare that's only one color from GRN (EG Mission Briefing), and make it the guild's other color (IE Black for Mission Briefing, or Quasiduplicate in Red.)

    I guess I'll go with Gruul. Now, in the past, Gruul has liked post-combat, and it has liked during combat, but I'm gonna take a new approach, and give the Gruul a mechanic that they'll want to use pre-combat.

    Bloodpaint - When target creature attacks this turn, X.

    Lightning Blood 2R
    Lightning blood deals 3 damage to target player.
    Bloodpaint - When target creature attacks this turn, it deals 2 damage to target creature defending player controls.
    "Why are you surprised the lightning hits two things? I have two hands!"

    Shaman of Blood 3G
    Creature - Elf Shaman
    Bloodpaint - When Shaman of Blood enters the battlefield, choose target creature. When that creature attacks this turn, search your library for a basic land or gate card and put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.
    "I follow the fighters, tending to the ground they trample as they expand our territory."

    Clan Guildmage RG
    Creature - Elf Wizard
    2G, T: Bloodpaint - When target creature attacks this turn, it gets +2/+0 and gains trample until end of turn.
    2R, T: Bloodpaint - When target creature attacks this turn, it deals 1 damage to each creature defending player controls.

    Ruric Thar, Domri's Liege 4RG
    Legendary Creature - Ogre Warrior
    Ruric Thar can't be countered
    When a creature spell you control becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter that spell or ability unless its controller pays 2. When they do, Ruric Thar deals 2 damage to that player.
    Trample, Vigilance
    Bloodpaint - At the beginning of combat on your turn, choose up to two other target creatures you control. When those creatures attack this turn, they get +2/+2 and gain trample until end of turn.

    The naming convention is the same as the other Gruul keywords, IE they have Blood in the name, but these are usually better to use pre-combat, creating interesting board situations. I'm debating whether to make the Ruric thar triggered ability either all spells, or just creatures. I think just creatures is better, but that's a knob to tweak in development.

    IIW: Support Elf Tribal in standard.

  • posted a message on Jeskai Primal Nexus
    I didn't see a good thread that talked about this possibility, but I had a lot of fun playing with the UW Lifegain Nexus deck during the previous standard, and I was wondering where everyone thought it would go post rotation. Obviously, the deck lost its major win con in aetherflux reservoir, but I think it has a new one. I faced another version of the deck on Arena, after the rotation, that was running Patient Rebuilding as its wincon, but I think that the deck could see a shift into Jeskai now that our wonderful izzet twink is available for use. I just wish there was still a time twister variant in standard, memory did so much work in the previous version. Thoughts? I don't have a list put together completely, but probably very similar to the old one, with some copies of Ral, maybe a 1 of teferi... Let's get brewing!

    Quote from Colt47 »
    Oh sweet, we can still go infinite with Arcane Adaptation! The only problem is that I don't recall if there is anything that still lets someone drain life for creatures going to the graveyard.

    poison-tip archer says hi, but then it's a sultai deck. Maybe make it also Muldrotha?

    You can't go infinite, since you need to untap this creature to do it again. With Staff of Domination, though, you could go infinite with a copy of Battle Hymn
