Faith's Reward isn't banned
As for Tactitian, one of my goals with the card is to really push the power-level of a 4-cmc RW creature past what players would expect to come out of WotC. I know his ability to hit an opponent's counterspell and hold it up for an entire turn cycle is pretty potent, but I'm not convinced it would be too good. Especially considering the card is revealed to all players, giving the opponent enough information to play around it.
Sep 18, 2018Not gonna lie. That is some of the ugliest art I've ever seen. Tajic's armor looks like plastic painted with chrome. And his sword is just weird. I liked the wavy sword a lot better.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
The Selesnya split card is pretty cool. The front half may be usable in standard. The back half is a great finisher in limited. I wasn't really a fan of the split cards usurping the hybrid slots, but this is a clever way to fit two cards with very different roles into one card slot. Kinda makes me wish every limited card was stapled to a possibly playable card.
Sep 17, 2018I like the idea of casting this during combat. Swing with an amount of damage the opponent decides they feel comfortable taking, then cast this to really pressure them into letting you draw.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Anyway, it looks like they're really going in on the counter-burn strategy for Izzet.

I think "feeling like Boros" is part of the problem. Boros has been cornered into having only one strategy: attack with all your stuff. That's what people don't like, and while cards like "Final Bortune" and Deafening Clarion play the role well enough, they still leave a lot of people underwhelmed. I think it's time to broaden just what sorts of things Boros is allowed to do. I did make sure that all of these cards work well in an aggressive, combat-centric strategy, so the limited archetype is still there. I just wanted these cards to be a bit less surface-level aggro and more open-ended or competitively-minded.Quote from void_nothing »I like these all, but I am mostly satisfied with Boros in Guilds, and two of these - Feigned Death and Projection of the Heart - don't actually feel like the Boros guild even though they're in-color for red-white.
As for the color identity of cards like Projection, I agree the affect could show up in green as well, especially with the counter-moving stuff, but I also think it's undefined enough that it could be in white as well. As this was designed as a red-white card first, that's good enough for me.

Having tested a Sultai reanimator build a bit, I often find that it's pretty easy to fill the graveyard while there aren't a whole lot of ways to easily take advantage of having a full graveyard. None of the undergrowth cards are all that playable in standard, so having an agressive beater that eats up Glowspore Shamans and Stitcher's Suppliers after they've done their thing can give you a handy alternative strategy. Keeps the deck from doing-a-lot-while-accomplishing-very-little.Quote from itazuranarisu »Dunno how to feel about the troll. It simultaneously enables Undergrowth while also taxing it. I don't understand why they would do that.
And besides, with that "or sacrifice this" clause, and the discard ability, this guy can very easily ADD to the undergrowth count anyway. I expect any undergrowth deck to want this guy at 4 copies.
Sep 17, 2018The troll is like a cross between Lotleth Troll and Grimgrin, Corpse-born. It's pretty neat, and could probably make a nice beater for a Sultai deck fueled by Stitcher's Supplier, Glowspore Shaman, Search for Azcanta, and basically anything with surveil. Oh, and explore cards. I approve.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Misleading thread title/10
Sep 17, 2018A lot of people are unsatisfied with Boros' cards in this set, and while I don't typically play Boros, I can sympathize. Especially seeing how many playable cards Dimir is getting. So I decided to come up with better designs for the Boros rares of the set. These cards aren't in any way based on the existing rares.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Flare Angel 3RW
Creature - Angel (R)
Flying, first strike
When ~ enters the battlefield, tap target creature an opponent controls. That creature attacks during its controller's next turn if able.
This one is meant to be a generic midrange beater that can push through and possibly trade with a Lyra in standard.
Feigned Death 2RW
Return to the battlefield all creature and artifact cards in your graveyard that were put their from the battlefield since your last turn. Those permanents gain haste.
At its worst, this card is boardwipe recovery for nontoken creatures. At its best, I think it can be a build-around piece for a Goblin Sacrifice deck in standard using things like Siege-Gang Commander and Dark-Dweller Oracle. Might also have some uses outside of standard, but not likely. Also throws a bone to decks that play Vehicles in any format.
Arcane Tactician 2RW
Creature - Human Wizard (R)
Whenever ~ enters the battlefield or attacks, exile up to one target instant, sorcery, or enchantment card with converted mana cost 3 or less from a graveyard. Until your next turn, you may cast that card without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.
This guy is aimed at competitive control decks in both standard and modern, which a lot of people have complained about Boros lacking. Yes, it's way more aggressively costed than Goblin Dark-Dwellers, which is very similar. It's also way more versatile, being able to hit any graveyard and hit enchantments. The trade-off that makes keeps this card from being strictly better is its stats and the multicolored mana cost, which is why I think it's probably okay to print. The small stats also happen to play well with mentor.
Projection of the Heart 4RW
Enchantment - Aura (M)
Enchant creature or planeswalker
Enchanted permanent has "T: Create a token that's a copy of this permanent, except it's not legendary if this permanent is legendary. That token has haste. When that token leaves the battlefield, move any counters that were put on it this turn to this permanent. Exile the token at the beginning of the next end step."
Okay this one is sort of a wall of text, but it should fit on a card. Anyway, this one is aimed at Commander and build-around standard decks. It could technically count as some extra Splinter Twins in modern Twin decks, but I don't think that deck would play this. In the context of GRN limited, it's meant to allow a fragile creature to attack without fear of death whike reaping the benefits of mentor triggers.
So what do yall think?
Sep 17, 2018@Antiantiserum: Every time you post something with this box formatting, half of the text gets cut out of the screen when viewing on mobile. Can you please just post the card text? Like, without any fancy formatting stuff?Posted in: The Rumor Mill
