    "Repeat the following process for each creature. That creature's controller chooses another target creature YOU DON'T CONTROL THAT HAS NOT BEEN TARGETED BY THIS ABILITY. Those creatures fight each other."

    This wording makes it so you don't have to disadvantagedly choose your own creatures to fight, and your opponents creatures must spread their fighting among themselves. Because damage won't check until all the fighting is done, it also keeps them from dumping all the fight damage onto one low power creature.

    The Ebon Legion (originally Order of the Ebon Hand) was mirrored by the Order of Leitbur in Fallen Empires, so your card should probably call back to that.

    Card design is a nice balance against the original.

    So, crazy idea:

    Cyclopses have one eye, Homunculi have one eye, and then Eyes are, well, an Eye. You could make a historic-like batch word that cares about all three creature types or just some cards that specifically care about them.

    Hey, maybe they're bringing Lord back as a creature type? Or Royal? Or they could have King, Queen, Prince, and Princess as separate types grouped into a royal batch mechanic. Like a Knight creature that gets +1/+1 as long as you control a royal creature.


    WotC is still seems to be focused on pandering to SJW’s so if they did it would be Royal to not force gender roles onto characters. Though it does make sense to use Royal since it denotes lineage of which the gender isn’t the focal point and this would definitely be the plane to introduce it with.
    To bad all the SJW’s are gonna hate Rowan now. She’s annoyed the didn’t summon her brother as well. A female showing concern for a white male isn’t going over well with WotC’s preferred demographic....non white, non males.


    Except Will is in the set so your entire gripe is pretty much just a meaningless screed against diverse characters. After all, how dare Wizards work to make a cast of characters that are proportionally representational to society at large? I can certainly understand how you personally loose out by having some characters that don't look like you in the game that you and many other people play. This is sarcasm.

    Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

    Oh god the shuffling. Why not look at the top six cards instead, putting the rest on the bottom in a random order?


    Thats an interesting thought. It makes the card a little worse in limited, but if you get any number of duplicates from the top six it's actually better in constructed that "search for 1"

    So the question becomes, what good does it do for this to be a land only on the battlefield?

    Artifact lands were important because their artifactness interacted with the environment. These would be relevant in a set that cares about lands (artifacts that are "bonus lands"), but they can't be tutored with land search, pulled from the graveyard with land recursion, or be discarded to effects that need lands to be discarded. The prior poster is right that the text doesn't create meaningful gameplay implications.

    The third one should be castable until the end of your next turn maybe? If you're spending 6 to cast the celebration, you won't have much left to cast more than one spell with typically.

    Alternately, you could make it a "Discard a card then draw a card" effect

    Endless Swarm is a cards name. Adding an s is going to clear up confusion. Names gonna need a change.


    Yeah, the name is just a placeholder until I can make something more evocative.

    Is bonuses for each other swarm, so it doesn't pump itself. Basically, if it's by itself I want it to be a 1/1 or an 0/1 for 3 Mana.

    Endless Swarms 2G
    Creature - Insect (Common)
    When Endless Swarms enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a card named Endless Swarms, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
    Endless Swarms gets +1/+1 for each other creature named Endless Swarms you control.
    A deck can have any number of cards named Endless Swarms.
    1/1

    I'm playing with the idea of a combined Relentless Rats/Squadron Hawk. I think 3 CMC is the sweet spot for this to cost, but I'm not sure if I need to drop it down to an 0/1 for balance?

    Cards that target used to say "This spell can't be countered by spells or abilities.". New templating is wierd since Rage could still be countered if target gained pro red or hexproof or some.thing

    I feel like this could be previewing a cycle of enemy colored commands w/ entwine. Given that each of the talismans quoted another enemy colored planeswalker, we could be seeing Vraska's ..., Ral's ..., etc.

    Disappointed the art isn't from Mirrodin/New Phyrexia (where are my suns!), but happy for the new toy

    Quote from rowanalpha »
    I'm gonna make a leap and say that the other four swords are spread out over other booster products over the next several years. They should be wrapping up the Magus mega cycle in the commander sets this year, so this cycle could be spread over Conspiracy/Battlebond/Horizon sets for years to come.
    That would certainly make things weird for having six of a 10 card cycle being modern legal...


    Horizon Canopy would like to have a word with you ;p

    Is there an equipment or enchantment that gives "T: add 2 Mana?"
