    Judge, if I keep one piece of candy in my mouth for the entire tournament, does that count as eating a candy during my upkeep?

    I like time spiral for horror themed decks and zendikar full art for edh.

    Blobulate is maybe a little too close to just being a kill spell. If you replaced Fights another target creature with Loses all abilities it'd still be entertaining.

    Yeah, that's the joke.

    What's that Magic joke? Everything is a kicker variant, or something.

  • posted a message on Teferi - and why he shouldn't exist
    I mean obviously I don't think Teferi was a bad inclusion but last time I got involved in this kinda discussion I got the thread locked for swerving into real world politics and copped a warning for calling someone a racist so I should probably just leave TOO to be mad.

  • posted a message on Another Ixalan set
    I personally really liked Ixalan, like as much as my other favourite sets are stuff like Innistrad, Conspiracy and New Phyrexia there was something cute about a whole set of high seas adventures with dinosaurs and such. Sure the power level was pretty low, but I mainly play EDH and limited so idc much.

  • posted a message on Teferi - and why he shouldn't exist
    The "reason" Teferi is back as a planeswalker is pretty simple, they literally needed a "black" planeswalker and they needed to make it "guaranteed" good so people play it.

    Thats forced diversity and WotC loves that.
    Or, as part of a storyline based on the game's history they picked a whole bunch of characters with history in the game, and as a few of those characters are pretty much immortal WotC figured they could bring those characters back as cards.

    Storywise, it's not like spark transfer hasn't happened before in magic, and it's not like "character tries to help friend and accidentally ****s up" isn't a major theme of MtG storytelling. Related: if Shiv explodes in the next Dominaria storyline you owe me $50.

    And what's with the "forced diversity" comment?

    I think Meld is as close as we're getting to combine in black border, and meld requires DFCs which push up the printing cost. Not that Meld wouldn't be fun, it's just unlikely.

    Verdant Plutonic Abyssal
    Legendary Land (mr)
    ~ enters the battlefield tapped.
    T: Add U, R, or G to your mana pool.
    If ~ would enter the graveyard, instead exile it transformed.
    ///
    Vivid Coruscating Dream UGR
    You may only cast ~ from exile. (mr)
    Play with your library revealed. During each turn, you may play up to one card of each type from your library or from exile.
    2/2

    Probably this would need reminder text to point out which side is the front.

    Next: A Halloween card

    Imprisoned in the Goo 2UG
    Enchantment - Aura (r)
    Enchant Nonland Permanent
    Enchanted permanent is a blue and green ooze creature with base power and toughness 0/4 and has indestructible, and it loses all other abilities, card types, and creature types.
    UG: Return ~ to its owner’s hand. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.

    Yeah, Mystic Beast probably needs to be like 6-8 mana and/or in UB.

    Changes of the Flesh also needs to be around 6-8 mana, and I'd make it a non-Ravnican UR card. It's combo x removal, or two combo parts, or turn 4 Eldrazi Titan x removal.

    Cycle of Evolution already exists and it's called Crib Swap.

    I'm calling Proliferate for the Simic, personally.

    As far as I can tell, Green doesn't really get unconditional creature destruction even with replacement. Beast Within is the only green card I could find that did that. Changing it to destroy a creature with flying could work?

  • posted a message on The new Niv-Mizzet, Parum card seems grossly overpowered
    I've played against Grixis decks in sealed & limited which ran Mizzet as a finisher. They were pretty fun to play against because either I got to see some entertaining bs or I got a free win because they didn't draw enough red sources despite having a deck of like 20% lockets.

    I wouldn't call Parun OP, just a little pushed to make up for the casting cost.
