I am also not sure but everything connected to the Blackblade somehow counts lands:
* Dakkon Blackblade
* Blackblade Reforged
* Korlash, Heir to Blackblade

Jan 15, 2019Perhaps his loyalty counter could be tied to the number of lands you control. Perhaps as static ability?Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Gideon Blackblade enters the battlefield with X loyalty counters on it, where X is the number of lands you control.
Jan 14, 2019It essentially has too much text for a common, with the if clause put in the middle. I would therefore put it in uncommon.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
However I don't necessarily think mana is slow and aweful in pauper. Lotus Petal, Seat of the Synod and Ash Barrens can make the game quite fast.
Ash Barrens might be actually the card that you are looking for since it allows you to have to untapped basic lands in turn 2. Turn 1 play the first basic land and cycle for the second one you want. Turn 2 play that basic land and to whatever you want to do with 2 mana.
Jan 14, 2019The Blackblade ability typically involves land counting. However land counting is not very white. Giving the name Blackblade and his recent closeness to Lilliana adding a black mana cost seems like the best choice.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Perhaps the depth of the equipment digging is controlled by the amount of lands you control. This way it could get easier to get the Blackblade to boost is combat strength when equipped. Speaking of which the aura searching part does not make much sense to me.
Also... I actually don't know what happens with equipment when Gideon stops being a creature. Does that fall off? If yes, perhaps he is allowed to equip something from free when transforming in his Human Soldier form.
Last thing is his +1 ability. While being very Gideon, I don't really see how that reflects him during the story. He was pushing for the kill. So I would actually think his transformation ability should perhaps be hit +1 ability like in Gideon, Ally of Zendikar.
Just a few thoughts...
Jan 13, 2019Yandere Sliver posted a message on Is it just me, or are there almost no constructed playable Common cards in RNA?As a Pauper player I have to say that RNA is not really an amazing set.Posted in: New Card Discussion
However I still fail to see how Skewer the Critics is bad by any stretch of the imagination. The power baseline for 1 mana burn is Shock not Lightning Bolt. Bolt is the absolute maximum you can see from a 1 mana burn spell. Saying Skewer are not as amazing as bolt and therefore bad is like saying that shock lands are bad because the original duals were better.
Jan 13, 2019In Blue and Black we have the choice between 2 great mill commander: Phenax, God of Deception and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I like Phenax a bit more given that our standard creature has 3 toughness his ability is rather scary and if he becomes a creature he can mill for 7 which is also great.
Jan 12, 2019I have to agree with Thought Criminal here.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Also it is theoretically possible to write everything in pseudo code or C++ because the game is completely implemented in MTGO. MTGO and MTGA also prompted the game designer to scrap mechanics which can't be easily programmed so the new mechanics are all designed to be easily implemented in a programming language and have a certain flow to it when playing the game in a computer environment. Old mechanics like Madness also received an update to work better in MTGO.
Jan 12, 2019As commanders goes, there are a few which might be interesting.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV would be on tribe and mace the Relentless 'Crats cheaper
Ambassador Laquatus would support the milling theme.
Kami of the Crescent Moon might actually be interesting. It is card draw and also thins the decks of our opponents.
Kira, Great Glass-Spinner to protect our board.
Also Teferi, Temporal Archmage or Aminatou, the Fateshifter could also be really solid commander for this.
Jan 12, 2019Yandere Sliver posted a message on City Map, Gateway Project, and Gate Construction ZoneI love Gate Construction Zone. It is a gate that is not fully complete but yet functional enough to work as a gate. I think the original wording is fine. Warped Landscape is not a powerhouse of a card, so even if Gate Construction Zone is stronger is does not strike me as overpowered at common.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Gateway Project could work as Fortification:
Artifact - Fortification
Fortified land is a Gate in addition to its other land types.
Just throwing that out there.
Jan 12, 2019In magic effects which modify the text box come in so called layers. They have written a whole article about that: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/layer-system-2009-11-05Posted in: Custom Card Creation
It explains the intricacies and it can become fairly complicated and might lead to unexpected interactions.
I think something like fight might be an effect you are looking for.
Jan 11, 2019You don't need a text replacement you can simply add "Cannot attack or block". The problem with text replacement is that this might get you into weir layer territory. It also disables activated abilities and what not. I mean I can see that on an enchantment or something like that but it does not look like a keyword which would play well.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Petrify falls into a similar category. If you look at a hard counter for horde strategy any kind of wrath effect does the job and probably plays better because you have less stuff on the board.
Jan 11, 2019Skyhop is okay. You might want to modify the reminder text a bit. Kargan Dragonrider is a card which you can refer to as template.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Skirmish does not make sense at all, because nobody is targeting anything during the combat phase. The attacker declares which creatures attack and the defender say which creatures will be blocked by whom. There are mechanics like [https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Goad Goad] which can force someone to attack. But skirmish as it is now essentially does nothing.
