Quote from steve_man »I've always wanted an updated Fire Imp that can hit any target or have bigger stats, but this fits the bill quite nicely. What I like most about this card is that it finally gives red an answer to a blocking True-Name Nemesis.
Quote from Dunharrow »I don't want it to be a 4 pack draft, so to ensure that there are enough cards when two people are in the same colour, I think I need to have a lot of hybrid.
If I lean on hybrid cards that have a lot of mana symbols, it makes it harder to just play all the good multicolour things.
Divinity of Pride is going to be good in monoblack and monowhite, and could be played if someone wanted to play black and white, but it would be really bad in a deck that was trying to play any other colours. You aren't playing Divinity of Pride and Deus of Calamity in a Red-Black deck.
Quote from Dunharrow »
Running some numbers in my head.
360 cards. Let's say I have 10 lands.
That leaves 70 cards per colour.
Or... if I have 5 hybrids for each colour pair... it is more like 80 cards per colour.
Obviously, this needs testing. I just feel like the better starting point is more hybrid cards and to tone it down if that really causes people to play multicolour.
I would need to make sure that there aren't a lot of cards that are easily splashable. You are not likely to play Goblin Chainwhirler and Benalish Marshal in the same deck, even if you have a Nobilis of War. For this reason I think the cube could support a lot of hybrid cards without making multicolour viable.
Quote from Dunharrow »I am just trying to figure out how I make it draftable by 8 people if I only make 5 archetypes. It feels like 2 people would draft unopposed alone in their colours, which is not ideal.
So I am trying to figure out how to make additional archetypes that can be drafted. Do I go with thinks like Wilt-Leaf Liege? I am really unsure, which is why I am here for help. I am afraid of making 2-colour archetypes and then ruining the point of the whole thing.
Quote from Caranthir »Whereas - as a former veteran moderator myself - I can see you are just trying to do your job, exactly what kind of illegal activity is when a store, by accident, sells a novel before it shall be available?
How different it is from people opening and leaking cards they opened a week and a half before they are allowed to?
It's not like the guy stole it from the printing facility.
