    Maybe something like,
    Psionic - Whenever you play an Instant or Sorcery with the same converted mana cost as ~, you may put a Psion counter on ~.
    Then you could have abilities that did stuff depending on the number of counters on it.

    Like, 'T: Look at the top X cards of target player's library, where X is the number of Psion counters on ~."

    But, that would make you have to design around CMC, I'm not sure you're willing to do that. Also, it's really hard to see this outside of blue, as blue is generally the color associated with mental 'evolvedness'.

    Analtherapist? Did you mean 'Analrapist,' the profession unfortunate Tobias Funke intended to invent by being both an Analyst and Therapist?

    And why isn't Tribist a knight? I think you meant the word 'Tribist' in the same sense as the word 'Racist,' in that he's discriminating against a tribe. The card is solid, the name is iffy.

    Don't like Urza's abilities, but the 'choose a color,' aspect to a Planeswalker seems nice.

    Doesn't Hollow Statue die as it comes into play unless you already have an Anthem out?


    Well, that was kind of the point; you need some other sort of universal buff to get this guy out, otherwise a 2cmc colorless anthem is too goo. I thought about making him cost 0, but thought it would probably be dangerous.

    EDIT: New card.

    And another guy

    Regen Dude WG
    Legendary Creature - Fungus
    At the beginning of your upkeep, regenerate each other creature you control.
    1/1

    Could this second guy regen during each player's upkeep if it costed more?

    Edit:
    Frantic Assistant 2U
    Creature - Human Wizard
    Creatures you control have haste on other player's turns.
    T: Untap target creature that hasn't been in play since your last upkeep.

    I think this would be more fun if it just let you cast the revealed card.


    That was what it was going to be originally. I guess the probability of having a good set up of creatures and instant/sorceries is low enough that this thing wouldn't chain off too much.

    I think I changed it because I thought it would be cool to have something that could copy both creatures and instants/sorceries, and that it would be cool to be able to copy something, then play the original afterwards.

    Think about it should probably not be an instant, but man, everytime someone says "Think about it" out of some sort of context, it reminds me of... that Limp Bizkit song... errr...

    Agreeing about Annoy Opponent and Plagiarize.

  • posted a message on Dimir Network, Kami, riffs, and more
    I think the Kami should lose the 'up to' part, but good call on non-creature artifacts.

    I had a card similar to the Dimir Network, a mono blue enchantment that went something like, "At the beginning of your upkeep, each player exiles the top card of his or her library. Players may play cards exiled by ~ during their turn as if they were in their hands. Mana used to play cards exiled with ~ can be treated as mana of any color." The goal was trying to make a community hand.

    I don't think your network is necessarily black, but how about, "Whenever a card is put into the graveyard from anywhere, that card's owner chooses an opponent. That opponent may play that card." Don't know if that works, but cards like these are pretty fun.
    Omoikane is cool in that it has that mythic quality feel, but I think it could easily be "If you would draw a card, you may chose not to."

    Guild pack seems abusable at 0... searching for five cards means you are likely to set off some sort of game winning combo that turn, but I can't back this up with any examples.

    I like the 'Dorm, though it could probably stand to lose either trample or shroud. Or maybe even have it get trample if a green creature was returned, and shroud if a blue was, either way, this sort of "drawback" is always fun EtB effects.

    Quote from Fumar

    How come? Please do bear in mind that the idea of smartz dragon is at best secondary.


    Your post says it all. Bears are green's iconic creature type. And, because all colors' iconic creatures must have flying, I suggest flying bears.

    Creature - Flying-Bear (M)
    Flying
    2/2

    Or how about another suggestion: Troll.

    Whenever you cast a creature spell, reveal the top card of your library. If its an instant or sorcery with converted mana cost equal that spell, you may put a copy of the revealed card on the stack.

    Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, reveal the top card of your library. If its a creature card that shares converted mana cost with that spell, you may put a copy of the revealed creature onto the battlefield.

    2/2

    How do I word this right? And how powerful is it?

    Could the artifact be okay as a 1/1 creature?

    maybe i was just getting unlucky but a skim through saw like 2-3 functionally new card. out of a lot.


    same here... and it's weird to use the same names of cards that already exist... why?

    All the other colors' iconic creatures generally have flying. Because green can't have flying creatures, this MUST mean green can't have an iconic creature type.

    You could make it, "Whenever a land you control would be tapped for red mana, add twice the colorless mana to your mana pool instead," if you wanted to avoid a lot of the potential busting. It seems less interesting, but is probably a lot safer.

    Quote from TwoBah

    If a creature would enter the battlefield, if it wasn't cast from a player's hand, instead it doesn't.


    This one doesn't work, as I pointed out, because cards cast from the graveyard, via Haakon ect., would stay on the stack.

    For hybrids you just mana wrap {ur} for (U/R).

    Also this set seems like a pretty cool idea. I would suggest to either include changelings, or something like the Mistforms from Onslaught, but better. Also hybrid I think works pretty well with this idea, as versatility means more playability, right?
