    picnic_bomber (Kamigawa) - I am a fan of this. The inherent modality adds a lot of depth.

    Legend (Rath) - The connection feels very tenuous. It should have more in common besides just sacrificing. The card itself feels fine, but I have the feeling there is some brokenness lurking that I'm not seeing.

    mirrodin71 (Kamigawa) - This feels very narrow, even in a set exploring fortifications. I'm not sure why the fortified land has to be tapped.

    Jimmy Groove (Theros) - I like the idea (played with it myself in an inferior way), but I feel like this needs more seperation in its costs. In a normal set the 1 additional mana would be okay, but with enchantments everywhere like Theros, it needs more.

    netn10 (Lorwyn) - This does not feel rare, despite the Legendary status and flavor win. Having to have a goblin and a goat?

    Cardz5000 (Lorwyn) - Love it. Throw in some damage prevention, and you really start humming along.

    AtlasNova (Tarkir) - Mechanically, this feels fine. Not sure I'm feeling that it's a rare though.

    BrainPo (Theros) - Well-built. Not sure I'd be targeting this for that bonus unless there was nothing else.

    Gateways7 (Tarkir) - Not feeling this one. 6 mana seems like a ton here, especially given the limited Sift.

    zdtsd (Tarkir) - This seems rough if you played Zurgo pre-combat. You'd have a a completely irrelevant combat step there.

    void_nothing (Tarkir) - Solid, but the mechanic feels SO narrow. Not sure it would be enough for a whole set.

    Hemlock (Kaladesh) - I feel like there's too much going on here, especially for an uncommon.

    Tarkir - Ankle Shanker

    Shanking Knife 2
    Artifact - Equipment (R)
    Equipped creature has first-strike and deathtouch.
    Equip 2
    Dented and bent. Pitted and stained. Grimy and neglected. But holding it made you feel as if you could kill anything.

    Tarkir

    Flamebound Orc 1BR
    Creature - Orc Shaman (U)
    Menace
    Flare - When Flamebound Orc attacks, you may pay BR. If you do, target creature can't block this turn.
    2/3
    A rush of wind, a blinding glare, and the feeling of a sword in your guts.

    Choose one -
    • Target creature gains defender.
    • Return target tapped permanent to its owner's hand.
    • Shuffle a card from your hand into your library. Draw two cards.
    Addendum - If you cast this spell during your main phase, choose two instead.

    Cardz5000 - This feels pretty solid, but the halves are so close in cost that it feels off somehow.

    RaikouRider - The token ability should match the others better. Maybe just regular clone effect so that you could start that line with 'Copy' as well?

    willows - Confused. So, you make a copy of an enchantment, and then make it not an enchantment?

    JamBlock - This seems explosive in the right deck, but I would hate to have this go off in a real-world game. It would be crazy to keep track of everything. I am totally picturing it getting out of hand and then my creature getting Arrested. I'd end up with infinite auras on a creature that can't attack!

    picnic_bomber - This seems really good. Does it seem like it should have white in it for the effect?

    Gateways7 - Oof. This feels odd without some kind of 'X' in there to mitigate it. 4 mana for a copy of the best creature in play and 3 additional permanents seems way over the top.

    Hemlock - Feels production ready. And like a card that I would flash in at end of turn because I wasn't paying attention.. lol

    Enchantment (MR)
    Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, if that creature was dealt damage by a source you control, create a token that's a copy of that creature.
    2RG: Target creature you control fights target creature an opponent controls.
    I will take victory. You can have that other thing.

    Jimmy Groove - Not feeling this one. Giving opponents cards for a possible medium payoff doesn't speak to me.

    RaikouRider - Pretty nifty. There is a lot going on here for a two drop rare, but complexity fans would dig it.

    Gateways7 - Interesting, and feels good rarity-wise. Not sure I get the flavor.

    Subject16 - Seems pretty asymmetrical given the likelihood of opponents having equipment is not high.

    JamBlock - Busted card. The nightmare that is 'Blink EDH' (a la Roon and Brago) just got a ton worse.

    kwanyeegor - Pretty cool. Feels a bit more UR given the details.

    Weregild 1BB
    World Enchantment (R)
    Whenever a nontoken creature dies, its controller creates a colorless Treasure artifact token with “ tap symbol , Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color.”
    2: Sacrifice a creature. Any player may activate this ability.
    Every soul has value. A set amount.

    Not sure about this. Shows set in fantasy environments are a tough sell because they tend to underperform (Game of Thrones being the exception).
    It would be more likely that it would be a fish-out-of-water story where a modern kid/teen has their spark ignite, which I'm not sure would go over well.

    willows: I like the concept, but I feel like it conflicts with all the Golgari graveyard matters cards. I don't think it would be too OP to be '3 cards from any graveyards', and that might work better for me.

    picnic_bomber: At 6 (or 10+), this seems just dandy. Where I'm not liking it is at 2, which is supposed to be the primary mana cost.

    Cardz5000: I was not feeling this one until I saw that it was a common just now. The 'correctness' of that makes the card shine quite a bit.

    mirrodin71: This feels overly complicated, and far too abusable. I could totally build this to give me 20+ power for 4 mana almost every time.

    netn10: I like this, but it feels like it would be feast or famine with this one. Post Hornet Queen is just silly.

    Hemlock: Way too much going on, and your two drop eating a kill spell will pretty much end the game right there.

    A tribute to one of the first cards that blew my mind..

    Moldscape 3B/G mana B/G mana B/G mana
    Enchantment (R)

    If a nontoken creature would enter the battlefield, exile it instead. Its controller puts X 1/1 green Saproling tokens onto the battlefield, where X is equal to the exiled creature's power.

    A world coated in a constant cycle of life and decay.

    Violence 3RR
    Creature - Incarnation (R)

    Menace

    As long as Violence is in your graveyard, creatures you control have "{tap}: This creature fights another target creature."

    Violence's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creatures you control.
