If this is true, I wonder how they are going to fit in characters from Magic's past. Considering how popular said characters are and how consistent they have been with this even outside Commander, this would be a no-brainer, so which ones could fit thematically with each ability?
Populate: Gaea, Mat'Selesnya, Kristina of the Woods
Flashback: Ashnod, Leshrac, Sifa Grent
Morph: Belbe, Ugin (Pre-Spark)
Madness: Anje Falkenrath, Ramaz
Just some rough ideas, of course. Any others I missed?

The side effect of Isolated Watchtower is tapping for mana. You're comparing it to Artifacts that do nothing else when you should be comparing it to Seer's Lantern.Quote from Randuir »What makes you say that? A quick check on gatherer shows that all 3cmc cards that do scry 1 tend to have that as a side-effect to something more useful. Crystal ball is a 3cmc artifact that gives scry 2 for 1. Darksteel pendant is a 2cmc artifact that gives scry 1 for 1. I'm really not seeing the scry 1 effect being worth 3 on its own.
Jun 28, 2019So... I decided to make this at free time at work on Notepad, but for some reason I thought the idea was to make the whole cycle, so... whoops.Posted in: Custom Card Contests and Games
Kalkrish, Chief Recruiter WW
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
Whenever one or more tokens enter the battlefield under your control, you may pay W. If you do, choose one:
- Put a +1/+1 counter on each of those tokens.
- Draw a card.
Tupena, Revolutionary Shaper 1UU
Legendary Creature - Merfolk Shaman
Whenever you draw your third card for the turn, you may pay U. If you do, create a 4/4 blue Elemental creature token.
1U: Draw a card, then discard a card.
Strefan the Fiend 1BB
Legendary Creature - Vampire Wizard
2B, sacrifice a creature: Strefan the Fiend gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
At the beginning of each end step, if you gained 4 or more life this turn, you may pay B. If you do, each opponent sacrifices a creature.
Raba Red-Eyes RR
Legendary Creature - Goblin Warrior
Whenever you discard a card, Raba Red-Eyes gets +1/+0 and gains first strike and haste until end of turn.
Whenever you discard a Mountain card, you may pay R. If you do, draw a card, then discard a card at random.
Quinn Lifecrafter GG
Legendary Creature - Elf Druid
T: Add G.
G, T: Another target creature with a +1/+1 counter gains hexproof until end of turn.
If you cast a creature spell using only mana produced by creatures, that spell can't be countered and that creature enters the battlefield with X additional +1/+1 counters, where X is its converted mana cost.
Next: Choose one -
A Commander that messes with your opponent's lands (not necessarily Land Destruction)
A fair (aka. impossible or difficult to go infinite) Commander with Q
Jun 26, 2019EDIT: Oops, Nath'd!Posted in: Custom Card Contests and Games
Rachnee, Accursed Weaver 2GGG
Legendary Creature - Spider Shaman
Whenever you cast an enchantment spell, create a green Aura enchantment token named Rachnee's Web attached to target artifact or creature you don't control with "Enchanted permanent loses flying and its activated abilities cost 2 more to activate".
1(W/B)(W/B): Target opponent sacrifices an enchanted permanent. If a permanent is sacrificed this way, put a +1/+1 counter on target Spider you control.
Razaar, Mirrorcaster 1WRU
Legendary Creature - Human Shaman
When Razaar, Mirrorcaster enters the battlefield, create two 0/0 white Reflection creature tokens named Razaar's Mirrorspawn.
Reflections you control get +1/+1.
T: Look at the top four cards of your library. You may reveal a nonlegendary creature with converted mana cost 4 or less amongst them. If you do, creatures you control named Razaar's Mirrorspawn become copies of that creature until your next turn. Put all cards revealed this way on the bottom of your library in a random order.
Kinda hard to make something that works with Slivers but isn't Tribal considering Slivers are the most Tribal type in Magic, but hope that's good enough.
Next: Choose one -
A multicolored Snow Commander
A Wurm Commander (not necessarily Wurm Tribal)
Jun 26, 2019Earthshaker's Skin 2GPosted in: Custom Card Contests and Games
Enchantment - Aura
When Earthshaker's Skin becomes attached to a creature, if that creature had flying, destroy up to one target artifact or enchantment.
Enchanted creature gains +3/+2 and trample.
Enchanted creature loses flying and can't have or gain flying.
The trick about being as heavy as steel is finding the right landing spot.
Next: Rienne, Angel of Rebirth
Jun 25, 2019Some notable cards:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Master Splicer reprint is sweet. Don't think there are enough playable Golems in Standard to make it work, but blinking is a thing for sure.
Gauntlets of Light is a cute card. I'm sure there are some zany combos to do with it, but hey, even if it's just a Limited thing, I like it.
Sanitarium Skeleton is back! It's definitely a super janky card, but I still like it. Also super annoying in Limited.
Ripscale Predator is super spicy for Limited. Red gets Craw Wurms with upside now at Common? Neat.
Brightwood Tracker is yet another super cool Common. That looks like a super legit mana sink.
Pattern Matcher is hilarious. Will love to brew some jank with it.
Salvager of Ruin seems almost Standard playable to protect combo pieces. I like it.
Jun 24, 2019For only one mana? Why that sounds lovely.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Definitely seems very powerful for Commander, especially in mono-Red. It's very easy to turn this into a powerful Red card advantage engine with cards like Daretti, Scrap Savant, Reforge the Soul, Fateful Showdown, Faithless Looting, Gamble, Jaya Ballard and so on. It preventing opponent's discards and being able to loot itself is also fantastic.
As for Standard... well I doubt it, but maybe? It's cheap enough to stop Thought Erasure, but sadly it also gets reseted via Teferi, Time Raveler. Still want to brew some spicy jank with Heartwarming Redemption tho.
Jun 24, 2019Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Yeah, was not talking about Modern here. There are WAAAY better ways to jank it out in Modern if that's your goal.Quote from Jiyor »
Turn 1-Sigarda’s Aid
Turn 3-Hammer....Swing for some damage if blocked then more after blockers gone, lethal if unblocked. Still have 11/11 blocker in multiplayer game.
Jun 24, 2019I always considered Repudiate // Replicate as a possible counter against Hydroid Krasis, but hey, the added benefit of countering Planeswalkers is sweet as well. Has a lot of targets against two of the best decks in the format, so seeing Standard play is a given, maybe even on the main.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 24, 2019Wow, another really good Common. To think that I had to run Windgrace Acolyte to make my Golgari deck work in Arena Standard Pauper. The fact that it also helps the lifegain deck in Limited is also neat.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 24, 2019Ritokure posted a message on Mothership Spoilers 6/24 - "Cares About" Cycle, Planeswalker Deck CardsPosted in: The Rumor Mill
Thought the same thing, and my guess would be the former. I do remember him turning someone in Tarkir to use as a guide in one of the Mothership stories, so I doubt this is just a coincidence. Either way, love the reference.
Jun 24, 2019So this finishes the cycle of Legendary Mono-Iconics. This one could see play in Standard, as this is probably the most impactful reanimator target we currently have for Bond of Revival. The fact that it's great against Standard's biggest threat (Planeswalker decks) by shooting up to three of them while also swinging for 7 in the air makes this a solid contender for Reanimator brews, and on an empty board this kills you in two swings. Also, we have another solid reanimation spell in Blood for Bones, giving some sweet redundancy.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Not top tier or anything, but still, sounds like a great budget brew.
