    4) Superbajt
    Selesnya Guildmage / Wheel of Sun and Moon / Dromoka's Command
    1) ManyCookies :: Go Go Gruul!
    Clan Defiance / Huntmaster of the Fells / Regisaur Alpha
    6-0 I can build up Guildmage with recurring Command killing your threats basically as soon as you play them. I am then faster than Defiance (that I can counter anyway).

    2) Sizel
    Selenia, Dark Angel / Evershrike / Edge of the Divinity
    6-0 You are too slow for me. Selenia would die whenever you play her with no big loss to me. Shrike T5 can attack at most twice, and Edge is useless to Command.

    3) Bloopers
    Orcish Lumberjack / Deus of Calamity / Predatory Advantage
    0-6 T2 Deus OP, please nerf.

    5) Anachronity :: Oversoul Oversell
    Emmara, Soul of the Accord / Shield of the Oversoul / Oversoul of Dusk
    6-0 Emmara and Shield die quickly to fight with Guildmage/sac. I can create tokens to block Oversoul until I'm ready to crack back.
    I really like reusing Commands, and it seems to be quite good strategy in slow formats. Of course, T2 Deus can't be called slow, and I totally fold.

    Deep Thoughts
    Instant (Blue color indicator) {U}
    (Nonexistent mana costs can’t be paid.)
    Draw a card.
    Cycling 2U (2U, Discard this card: Draw a card.)
    Madness 1U (If you discard this card, discard it into exile. When you do, cast it for its madness cost or put it into your graveyard.)

    Devkarin Recycler 1BG
    Creature - Elf
    When Devkarin Recycler enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice a creature. If you do, draw a card.
    Golgari sometimes make shortcuts in the circle of life.
    3/3

    Unit Accelerator UURR
    Enchantment {R}
    Whenever one or more creatures you control attack, add that much mana in any combination of U and/or R. Until end of turn, you don't lose this mana as steps and phases end.
    Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, draw a card.
    At last, Izzet engineers found a practical application for their accelerators.

    Yeah... When I read the description for this round, I thought about an enchantment that gives mana and draws cards during combat. Then I thought about accelerators. Only then I scrolled down and saw Cardz500's submission. Of course, I can't prove that :p Well, I still think that even if similar, those designs are not exactly identical, and I wanted to share mine with you, because I liked it Smile

    2/2

    Does this mean that mono or colorless identity is legal or not? If not, why tell that 3+ colors is not legal? Wink

    Not exactly true, or there is some other contradiction in timeline. There is probably some common period, but not very big. Ixalan storyline's end was just several days before end of Dominaria's (Jace entering Weatherlight). Vraska though already is Golgari guildleader at the beggining of GRN, it seems. If she was able to seize the power in that time, it means Liliana could subjugate Obzedat some time after her, before Allegiances.

    Well, We already had an out of nowhere new color for planeswalker, even in a Gatewatch (Nissa). Additionally, whole Dominaria was Liliana appreciating Gideon more and more. There is only one more BW planeswalker, and he is quite stoned right now. If they need it for pattern and story reasons, I don't think Liliana becoming part white is so far fetched.
    As I don't see Kaya herself as Nicol's planeswalker commanding a guild, I think that's basically only another logical explanation what she does in the story.

    This has quite a high power level, but maybe it's not totally broken. Technically, green is not a color of Rituals, and I'd say that hybrid mana cost is a downside in Commander. Maybe it should just be red?

    Brave Moa RGW
    Creature - Bird (C)
    On Naya, you can underestimate a moa at most once.
    3/5

    Well, I am invincible. That's a good news. Worse - tieing 3 times isn't that good.

    Resist G/U mana
    Counter target spell that targets a creature you control or a creature spell you control.

    IIW: Top-down IT concept/device.

    (I don't think this is a break. This would be very close to hexproof for a creature/a creature spell can't be countered)

    Yup. 8 mana is maybe too much, I could see it at 6 mana if you were to push it. Anyway, 4 mana is too little for Control Magic these days, so Control Magic + Hero's Downfall is just off the limits. There are similar designs if you really want to have it cost 4. For starters, you can let opponent choose permanents. Or you can do it "sac 2 or lose control on 1".

  • posted a message on Help phrasing new Ability word, Storyteller
    Current trend in R&D is not having mechanics that demand from you constantly checking if the condition is met. Thus, Ascend was "Once you get it, you have it forever" and Undergrowth is mainly on spells or as ETB. This way, there's less counting needed and fewer possibilities to be wrong about a game state (i.e. attacking with a 4/4 into 4/5 Tarmogoyf when you thought it's 3/4). It was not true for Delirium in Eldritch Moon because they wanted to have a feeling of dread. It doesn't sound like that's what you are going for. You wrote as Storyteller was only ETB, and it follows this trend, but suggested in OP it is not. So, which one is true?
    Notice that in multiplayer one opponent who has less card is enough to turn this on. Also, this version is still a<b, not a<=b. If you want to have it being equal, while not writing this word, it could be: "... if no opponent has more cards in their graveyard than you...", but then it's no longer "one opponent is enough".

    Battle Rampart

    Advantageous Position - 2RW
    Enchantment - Aura
    Enchant land
    As long as enchanted land is untapped, creatures can't attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays 2 for each of those creatures.
    Enchanted land has "T: Creatures you control gain haste and trample until end of turn."
    Hold... Hold... Charge!
