A New and Exciting Beginning
The End of an Era
  • posted a message on [U] Professor Oak's Advice [B] Impostor Oak's Adivce [R] Double Oak Madness
    Impostor Oak's Revenge WAS played somewhat, though, and that's what I think the second card is based on. I still think Impostor Oak's Advice might still be too good. The blue and the black one most likely need to be bumped to 5 mana.

    Dragons are strongly aligned with red in Magic, but the Dragonborn is not forcibly aligned with any Magic color in Skyrim. The other Shouts have to be color-aligned since they tap deeply into the color abilities, but dragons exist in every color in Magic, so it made sense for Dragoncall to be not color aligned. I wasn't sure whether to make it cost 4 or 6, it should probably cost 4.

    Dragonrend has several breaks from its Skyrim equivalent to make it more palatable as a Magic card. Skyrim's Dragonrend doesn't affect non-Dragons, and I'm not sure if it deals damage or if its sole effect is forcing a Dragon to the ground so you can melee it. The only reason it's red is the damage aspect.

    This does contain some spoilers for Skyrim, so read at your own risk!

    Dragonrend - 2R
    Instant -- Shout (C)
    Dragonrend deals 3 damage to target creature. If that creature is a Dragon, it loses flying until end of turn.

    Dragoncall - 6
    Sorcery -- Shout (R)
    Search your library for a Dragon creature card, reveal it, and put it in your hand, then shuffle your library.

    Slow Time - 5UU
    Sorcery -- Shout (M)
    Untap all permanents you control, and you take an extra turn after this one. You can't play Slow Time during this turn or any turn created by Slow Time.

    J'Dar, the Dragonborn - 2BW
    Legendary Creature -- Cat Rogue (M)
    First strike, deathtouch
    Whenever J'Dar, the Dragonborn attacks, you may cast a Shout card from your hand without paying its mana cost.

    (This is based on my third playthrough attempt, a Khajiit thief build. Deathtouch is from Mehrunes' Razor.)

    Domas, the Dragonborn Companion - 3WW
    Legendary Creature -- Human Warrior Werewolf (M)
    Whenever Domas, the Dragonborn attacks, you may cast a Shout card from your hand without paying its mana cost.
    :symbg::symbg:: Flip Domas, the Dragonborn
    Domas, Beast Form
    Legendary Creature -- Werewolf (M)
    (Domas, Beast Form is black and green.)
    When Domas is flipped into Beast Form, put three hunger counters on it. When the last hunger counter is removed, flip Domas.
    Whenever a creature dies, if Domas dealt damage to it, remove all damage from Domas and put a hunger counter on it.

    (This is based on the second playthrough, a Redguard healer/1H specialist who joined the Companions. I didn't actually use beast form much, but I thought it would be a fun card. Also, possibly unprintable.)

    Yeah, I clearly wasn't thinking when I made it. I originally had it as when "one player controls no creatures", but I changed it for some unknown reason.

    Crush Counter - 3U

    When Pachyderm Illusionist leaves the battlefield, sacrifice all creatures paired with it.

    I like Variant 2 - I wanted to make a Super Caller of the Claw, and that lets it be powerful but still not degenerate.

    Capricious Djinn - 4RR
