    UBR, and add haste so there's better utility with stealing pump spells?

    As a set mechanic it could work, but I don't know if you want to replace cantrips and scry as an add-on to spells. Considering this is generally a worse ability than cantripping at a parameter of 1, and at a parameter of 2 or more it's a bit of a color bleed, I would advise being careful with it.

    Gamela the Pulsating 2RRR
    Legendary Creature - Sphinx
    RRR: Gamela the Pulsating gains flying and trample until end of turn.
    Whenever Gamela the Pulsating deals combat damage to a player, instant and sorcery spells you cast cost X less to cast and instant and sorcery spells that player casts cost "pay X life" more to cast until the end of your next turn, where X is the damage dealt in this way.
    The Equiloreans are wise but not all are peaceful.

    If you want the lands gone, it's an option. It can also sit around and then save your ass in the late game when the two lands are no longer relevant. Not saying the card is any good but it does have a niche.

    While technically correct, that answer doesn't really get to the heart of the matter. Let's assume a Mirror Gallery on the battlefield and I'll answer:

    1) You don't have to sacrifice anything with Diabolic Edict resolves because it's a spell an opponent controls. Since its only effect is to cause a sacrifice, nothing happens but the spell resolves.

    2) Same outcome.

    HOWEVER: If your opponent has an Arcane Lighthouse and manages to target the Phantasmal Image-Sigarda with a Lightning Bolt, you MUST sacrifice it. That's because Sigarda doesn't stop you sacrificing anything to abilities YOU control, and you of course control the Image's triggered ability.

    Just from the screenshots this appears to be the same general concept as Magic Puzzle Quest, where there are cards based on Magic but that don't function the same way because the game mechanics at the heart of the whole thing are so different. Might be some MOBA-type features in this?

    So just pointing out that the general idea is nothing new even though the game itself is new.

    Not sure how to feel about the super deformed-style PWs.

    The war-queens of Saarieta rule over a world of rivers and rage, a place of feasting and battle where even the humblest farm can be the site of a great duel and even the biggest treasure is secondary to the honor won by obtaining it. It is to this place that Gideon has planeswalked, alone, sword in hand, with a baffling mission: By Karametra's decree... he has to get married!

  • posted a message on Small yet satisfying EDH plays
    Any interesting individual moves you've made lately that didn't turn the game around, but somewhat impacted it, and that made you think "only in EDH"?

    For example, in a Jodah, Archmage Eternal deck, I recently "overpaid" for Painful Truths, spending WUBRG to draw five cards and lose 5 life. It didn't decide the game, but it felt good to use an interesting rules interaction and refill my hand so nicely.

  • posted a message on Retaliate: Color this Mechanic
    I mean, lots of things enable draw games in certain circumstances. It's a very specific set of circumstances this ability would do so in if it were just "inverse trample". So I see little point in making it more complicated and less intuitive than it needs to be.

    I could see it in white, black, and red, in that order. Meglonoth suggest it's maybe part green, but I think the blocking ability of that card is the RW part talking.

    When Desolation Treefolk enters the battlefield, destroy all artifacts, enchantments, and planeswalkers you control. If it was kicked, destroy all artifacts, enchantments, and planeswalkers instead.

    I would not make this a white ability. There's very little white about it philosophically. If it had to go into a second color it'd be black ("get the job done with the tools at hand, and if something gets thrown away in the process then so be it").

    I also wouldn't make it a keyword action - there are too many different variants, you see - unless it were somehow a set theme, like you planned to interact with the cards exiled in that way.
