    I’m not so quick to write off risk factor simply because, even if it is just an expensive Boros Charm, it’s a Boros Charm that can turn a land in your hand into a Boros Charm. Even with its low land count, flooding in burn is an issue, and drawing a land at the wrong time can give your opponent a chance to stabilize or even pull ahead. I don’t think it’s unreasonavle for burn to at least test this (maybe as a 2-of)

    Scrying Stick:
    It’s a neat, fairly costed Uncommon. I’m not sure how much space Scry Strike has, but the card itself is neat.

    Omnipotent Vanish
    Despite the name being really strange given the card’s effect, the first mode is a massive break. It’s essentially counter target spell, which only blue gets on its own (white VERY rarely can get taxing counterspells like Mana Tithe in theory, but I don’t think it’s happened since Time Spiral Block). Additionally, the second effect can be done in mono white, so I’m not seeing where the black is in the card. Essentially, this is a WU not a WB spell, and should probably cost 1WU.

    Also, I’m not sure what your comments are referring to, but remember to give feedback on the previous card before postin your own.

    Burn Out
    RR
    Sorcery
    Each spell you cast this turn gains storm and ‘This spell deals 1 damage to you’.

    As an additional cost to cast ~, sacrifice a non-land permanent.
    Roll a D6, then reveal the top card of your library until you reveal a permanent card with a CMC equal to the result. Put that permanent into the battlefield, then put the remaining cards onto the bottom of your library in any order”

    Flatline: Evolutionary Correction
    It’s an interesting take in a removal spell. It’s in a bit of a weird spot, since typically blacks conditional removal goes for small creatures rather than large ones, but if this is a bend it’s definitely an acceptable one. I could see it fitting into a set with a lot of things that increase power or toughness, but outside of that context it seems too narrow. You could probably cost this at B and it would be fine.

    Subject 16: Anima’s Will
    I like this. It’s very clean, and it scales well into the late game. It would be a solid addition to the splashable conditional counter suite along side Unified Will.

    Cheetos: Destructive Brawl
    At first I liked it since it seemed like a reasonable upgrade to the various [card]Hunt the Weak[/c] type cards, but the more and more I think about it, quite often with fight effects your creatures are already larger, so it’s very much a ‘the rich get richer’ effect. I’d cost it at CMC 3.

    Mergatroid: Font of Pansophy
    This is the kind of card that should have been in the top-deck matters EDH deck. The effect seems like a powerful build around effect. I wonder if this would just end up getting jammed for 1 or 2 in aggro decks instead of decks that actually want to set up the effect.

    BlazingRagnarok: Mental Momentum. I like the effect, and this is probably about as hard as you’d have to push impulsive drawing to make it actually playable. My big concern is that this could be pushing the limits of what is acceptable for red card advantage, even if they aren’t getting a card off of it until turn 5 at the earliest, this adds a ton of reach for red decks.

    Forestsguy: Colossal Endydion
    The effect is probably balanced at 7 CMC, and I like the fact that it encourages you to sequence your spells in a certain way. It probably wins the game the turn after it’s cast, but at 7 mana on a no protection creature it seems fine. Maybe a little too good for limited, so it would have to be a mythic.

    Voidnothing: outstanding speaker
    I’m not sure if consultation should be ‘another target advisor’, since the flavour of an adviser consulting himself seems off, but from a gameplay perspective it avoids the pitfalls of needing multiple advisers that crappy Ally mechanic from Oath of the Gatewatch sufferer from. In of itself, I like the fact that it creates a little sub-game of locking down different CMCs, but wonder if it should be legendary to avoid the effect being oppressive in multiples.

    Honorable mentions: Subject 16, Blazing Ragnarock, Void Nothing

    Winner: Mergatroid Jones

    Up Next: Sphinxes, Masticores, Manticores, or Spiders

    Sigiled Zealot
    WBR
    Creature - Human Knight (Rare)
    First Strike, Menace
    Whenever Sigiled Zealot attacks alone, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, if Sigiled Zealot is in your graveyard, you may return it to the battlefield. If you do, it gains haste and has “At the beginning of your end step or if this card would leave the battlefield, exile it”.
    3/1

    Necarchy Hellkite sure is nasty. The one thing I would change is that I would get rid of haste, however. I suspect that this would create problems by punishing any ‘shields down’ moments that your opponent has for too low a cost, and that getting rid of haste makes it a bit less punishing.

    Elemental Reshaping
    1UU
    Enchantment - Aura
    Enchant Land
    As Elemental Reshaping enters the battlefield, choose a creature or land.
    The enchanted land is a copy of the chosen creature or land, except that if is a land in addition to its other types and has all of its abilities.

    Edit: just realized that this needed a ‘is still a land’ clause in order to prevent the enchantment falling off. At this point, I made it so the land still had its old abilities to avoid it being a land that can’t tap for mana.

    On Dancing Death, I like the card as a weird Johnny card, but I think the card could be worded more elegantly. Also, this has fun value as a card that you Donate.

    Inflicted Agony
    BB
    Instant - Uncommon
    Target creature deals damage to itself equal it its toughness.
    ”Stop hitting yourself”

    The intention is to make a card that appeals to both Spikes in that it is an efficient removal spell, and also Johnies since it has a weird effect that they can build around (creatures dealing large amounts of damage to itself). The card is black opposed to red, as even though red is primary in ‘deals damage to creatures’, the card is in my circumstances just ‘destroy target creature’, which isn’t a red effect.

    When ~ enters the battlefield, each player puts all creature cards in their graveyard on to the bottom of their library in any order.
    Whenever a creature card would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, instead put it on the bottom of it’s owners library.

    Apex Predator
    GGGBBB
    Creature - Dinosaur
    Whenever Ancient Predator attacks, it fights target creature.
    Whenever a creature that Ancient Predator fought this turn dies, put a +1/+1 counter on Ancient Predator and it becomes indestructible until the end of turn.
    4/4

    The blessing counter design is neat, and likely balanced since if they remove the Satyr, both creatures loose the ability.

    Maliana, the Vengeful
    3RW
    Legendary Creature - Human Knight
    Vigilance
    At the end of each turn, if you were dealt combat damage by a creature this turn, take an extra turn after this one. Skip all steps during that turn except for the combat step.
    4/4

    The trigger is placed on the end step opposed to he combat step to avoid multiple combat steps triggering multiple extra turns.
