    This Mox is designed for Commander. At first, it's only good for casting your commander, but once they're on the field and under your control, you can spend the mana for whatever you want.

    Crown Mox 0
    Legendary Artifact
    Lieutenant - T: Add one mana of any color in your commander's color identity. Spend this mana only to cast your commander unless you control your commander.

    I used X on the Blacksmith because it makes the wording breezier and less awkward.

    These are pretty neat. Like a lot subtler Bogbrew Witch cycle. Vehicles seem... sorta out of place in a medieval setting? I know they did have carts and ships alike, but also the audience would more associated living creatures (noble steeds, etc) with transportation in this setting.


    I'd have Horses and other mounts too; just look at my Mount Up topic.

    I'm a fan of the "three stages" concept. Feels like a sequel to Origins. Three stages for Gideon, Jace, Liliana, and Nissa, please?

    Quote from Flisch »
    Okay, I just realized the rarity does not match the chronological order of her backstory. God, this is going to be so confusing to people.


    Yeah, that bugs me too. When I design three stages for the other four core Gatewatch, I'm probably going to try sticking to the more intuitive uncommon-rare-mythic order.

    Some design ideas for a Medieval set, in which a tournament is taking place and visitors from all over the kingdom travel to the capitol city to watch the games and drum up some business.

    The goblins did not understand their attraction to the mana rig. They simply knew it was where they belonged.

    Quote from Scarap »
    Echo the sentiment of not wanting to be about Chandra. Nothing against her personally, I'd just rather them use either lesser known characters or even just new ones so that the show can be it's own thing.


    Who says they're not going to? Just because Chandra's the protagonist doesn't mean she won't be interacting with a wide variety of characters on a regular basis. And the story doesn't have to focus on Chandra 100% of the time. They just need a popular face to help bring attention to the show and make it more cohesive with the franchise's branding as a whole, and who's more inclined towards action than a mind mage. Jace might work as the face of the strategic card game, but Chandra works as the face of the action television series.

    He refused to heed the call because his best friend, Rofellos, got killed. And at the tail end of Invasion, he submits to Yawgmoth for a time because Yawgmoth offers to bring Hanna back, even though the rest of Dominaria would suffer. Let's also not forget that time Gerrard sacrificed any semblence of defense to best Greven. Gerrard is very white, but he's also very red.

    My idea is that each deck gets a hero legend, a villain legend, and a partner duo consisting of one hero and one villain. For example, a RW deck could have Gerrard as the hero, Manfried Ulmach as the villain, and the partners could be Tahngarth (a heroic Minotaur) and Radiant (a villainous Angel).

    Another flavor card, this time designed to capture the flavor of looting a foe's pockets.

    Cutpurse Dagger 1
    Artifact - Equipment
    Whenever equipped creature attacks and isn't blocked, you may create a colorless Treasure artifact token with "T, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color."
    Equip 1
    +1/+0.

    Well, the Snake Ninja I'm thinking of would be one of the secondary Commanders for a Naga/Snake tribal deck, like how Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith was a secondary commander for Feline Ferocity, representing the Equipment subtheme. The face of the deck would be the Naga/Snake tribal card, while the secondary legends would be a Naga and a Snake, respectively.

    Now, a BGU deck focused around stealth would be a different beast. A Snake Ninja could be the face of such a deck, but more likely would be secondary. I would like to see these legends in a BGU Stealth Deck:

    Cat Rogue
    Snake Ninja
    Elf Faerie

    However, a dedicated Stealth deck is more likely to be UB, with Rogues, Ninjas, and Pirates aplenty.

    I considered making the Angel token 3/3, like those produced by Linvala, the Preserver.

    As for Life and Liberty, originally I went for just two tokens and two exiled cards. I didn't want Life and Liberty looking too poor next to Fire and Ice or Body and Mind. Guess I overshot.

    SULTAI UNBLOCKABLE, they can print some ninjutsu there for sakashima's student AND sygg, rivercutthroat could be relevant... AND, SULTAI that's not graveyard themed


    I could get down on this. Hopefully it's a Snake Ninja Legend to hit two popular tribes in one. Edric could make an appearance, along with some other classic "Little Sneaky Guy" cards.


    Don't forget Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. Wink

    I think I've suggested a Snake Ninja legend before in this topic. I know I got an idea for one when suggesting a BGU Naga/Snake deck. But would it have Commander Ninjutsu like Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow?
