  • posted a message on My Custom Dragons and horsemen (EDH stuff)
    Okay so I like Dragons, Like A LOT (In fact the only reason i had not made a dragon tribal deck prior to 2017 was sue to not having a 5 color dragon i liked (Only option was Scion, which i did not enjoy. too combo oriented)

    So I cracked open MSE and decided to visit my old threads to edit my previous works. Try to balance them better.

    However for reading purposes I will just use boxes.
    (Final note, they may use out of date abilities, but they are designed for EDH not Standard)


    [box]Nathairin, Caretaker of Growth
    6GU
    Legendary Creature - Dragon

    Flying, Hexproof
    Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, reveal the top card of your library. If it’s a land card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.

    4/6
    [/box]

    Now this was a guy that just felt underpowered every time I dusted him off, and was the only guy who did not fit well. He will also be the first of the ones that act like the (not yet dragonlord) dragonlords. Dromoka, Atarka, They are all allied colors. this is enemy colored variants. I used Coiling oracle's text as his ability, and i am curious if he is too OP with that trigger on every dragon attack. I don't want to increase the mana cost any more than it already is (Would even like to lower it by at least 1) But I don;t want to make Nathairin a paper thin dragon. Hexproof helps, but i also use my dragons to attack.


    [box]Basakadd, The grave's Judgement
    5BG
    Legendary Creature - Dragon

    Flying, Deathtouch
    Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, it gains Undying until end of turn.

    6/5
    [/box]

    Basakadd is different... he is a powerhouse at 7 mana, the Undying for attacking dragons is great as you can do an alpha strike and then board wipe getting your alpha force back (With a power up). Deathtouch promises to eliminate any potential threats that wish to block him.


    [box]Priosa, Sky Predator
    5RW
    Legendary creature - Dragon

    Flying, Haste
    Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, create a 2/2 red dragon with flying tapped and attacking.

    7/3
    [/box]

    Priosa was difficult to design and she is probably still not right. The 7/3 body is weak when you have no trample, you might kill one thing if blocked but chances are she is also going down. I might have to change Haste for trample as i feel it would work out better, but at the same time, if i sent out a 7/3 with no protection, she might not last to the next round.
    Of course in my deck, I have a few forms of granting haste so it might work out in my favor to give her trample instead.
    However i feel her trigger ability is very Boros feeling. Creating reinforcements when attacking. Granted there are some dragons that do it better, one that creates 6/6 dragons, but this give the added benefit of having those 2/2 whelps also attacking.


    [box]Musica, Song of Life
    4WB
    Legendary Creature - Dragon

    Flying, Intimidate
    Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, it gains Lifelink until end of turn.

    4/5
    [/box]

    Basic simple, not much to say. She allows you to heal up life you may have spent on fetches and shock lands along with other decks slapping you for being big and dumb, but effective. Not much more to say about her. and with intimidate, while she is not killing things off, you have to dedicate yourself to blocking her. You might not have the flyers needed to pull it off. (or they may be more valuable to you as chump blocker for the more damaging dragons.


    [box}Iolas, the Mind's Elegance
    4UR
    Legendary Creature - Dragon

    Flying, Flash
    Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, Scry 1.

    3/5
    [/box]

    Well another guy that seems to be on the nose. Unlike Nathrin which may be broken you get to scry for each dragon. I stil have to water down Nathairin a bit but i feel Iolas is good. 3/5 is not a threat so he might stick around a bit longer than he should.


    So those are my legendary Dragons.
    Now one of my favorite dragons I created only due to how different he is.


    [box]Deepwater Hellkite
    4UU
    Creature - Dragon

    Islandwalk
    R: Deepwater Hellkite gets +1/+0 until end of turn.

    6/6
    [/box]

    Usually, dragons fly, this one does not. He has islandwalk to represent the swimming aspect. And i gave him firebrething to make him feel like a dragon instead of just a leviathan. (Because really, he could be one) I feel it is very flavorful and as I said, one of my favorite dragons I ever created.


    Now that the dragons are done, lets move onto My Horsemen this is the 5th iteration of them. I have been editing and tweaking and I think i finally have one that works. They are the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Which usually has to deal with people running screaming, which is why i decided to have them all focused on creatures. I also made sure there was a least a similar effect in their colors. They also all share the same stencil. Casting cost of 6, (4 plus two of their color) Flanking and another ability in their colors, and an ability that trigger when they attack. And all this as a 5/5.


    [box]Conquest, the Horseman
    4WW[mana]
    [/mana]Legendary Creature - Avatar Knight

    Vigilance, Flanking
    Whenever Conquest, the Horseman attacks, exile target creature defending player controls.

    5/5
    [/box]

    With path to exile, Swords to plowshares and settle the wreckage. not to mention Oblivion ring and Journey to nowhere. Exiling a creature feel very white to me, so I went with that. Conquest has always been the OP monster and now i feel he is balanced.


    [box]Death, the Horseman
    4BB
    Legendary Creature- Avatar Knight

    Menace, Flanking
    Whenever Death, the Horseman attacks, defending player sacrifices a creature he or she controls.

    5/5
    [/box]

    While Death originally had deathtouch, she now has Menace. A good ability that does not feel like a repeat of her triggered ability. The kill is again focused on creatures, really the horsemen sort of focus on thinning out the enemy's defenses.


    [box]Famine, the horseman
    4GG
    Legendary Creature - Avatar Knight

    Wither, Flanking
    Whenever Famine, the Horseman attacks, tap target creature defending player controls, that creature does not untap during its controllers next untap step.

    5/5
    [/box]

    This guy has been edited and tweaked and always felt weak. Easily the weakest of the bunch or just too powerful in one iteration. So I was looking around and vorinclex popped into my head. I felt tapping was fine but I wanted to eliminate a creature like the other two. Well I can;t kill or exile since that has already been done, so i went with option 3, Freezing them. While that is a blue effect, vorinclex freezes lands, so maybe not too off theme (plus i feel a tapped creature could be weakened, sluggish, exhausted, hungry,) I think i finally have him right.


    [box]War, the Horseman
    4RR
    Legendary Creature - Avatar Knight

    First Strike, Flanking
    Whenever War, the Horseman attacks for the first time each turn, untap all creatures you control. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase.

    5/5
    [/box]

    Simple it's a mono-red aurelia on a horse. It works, it is (in my opinion) balanced. Not much else to say, he has been working since the beginning. Aside from originally being a wielder of haste, not much has changed.


    EDIT: i do not know hwy the box tag is not working

    With an upkeep of RRRR and a cost of 8RR he would never find a spot in my dragon deck.

    I can at least help you with card sizes and MSE.
    If you wish to print it on paper.

    Once you export and Image form MSE, make the sized 63mmx88mm

    I don't have Photoshop so i have adjust it in MS word, so mine end up being 6.31cm by 8.8cm
    Then just grab a basic land and the new cut and slip them into a sleeve.

    And yes that is why you found nothing on the FAQ. In my country counterfeit cards are legal so long as they are not sold for profit. When it comes to tournament play, WotC could ban my DCI for using them if I did.

    However this is a US site and you must abide by their rules. Thus the reason i have not provided a link for you. i really would like to help, but I can't.

    Bend
    2G
    Return target Enchantment to its owner's hand

    Snap
    2R
    Destroy Target Artifact

    Fuse (You may cast or both halves of this card from your hand.)


    Everything from Nothing

    The rules are simple. You design a card with name the person above you posted.

    For example. if I say Countersnap the person below me could go

    Countersnap
    2UU
    Instant

    Split Second
    Counter target spell.

    and then name their next card.

    So let's begin.

    Savor the Kill

    If anyone here knows a good way to do this, I'd love to know.

    Magic Set Editor
    He is asking how to print them not make them.

    op says “create”

    Again, Magic Set Editor.

    Print on bright white printing paper with a color printer.
    Scissors and/or a slicer are necessary.

    While I agree that is the route to go when print magic cards, that is not what he is asking. If you read his post, he says
    "does anyone here know of any tips, tricks, programs, or websites that will print/create a high quality MTG card?"

    what he is asking for is actually a banned topic on this site (#0 day suspension for just mentioning i had printed proxies. I mean it was overturned as i did not advertise any sites that did it but it was a wake up call for me which is why i refused to list any site that would (As I know about 5)

    thing is, i think he already has the Planeswalkers made and just wants them printed.

    Ugh, tibalt.

    By far one of the worst planeswalkers ever printed, i bet WotC wants us to forget he even exists.

  • posted a message on Lotus Picker
    Too strong. You can get more than 1.
    In any deck. You can only have one black lotus. In this deck you have 4 that gives you one.and with token doublers you get multiples. In a perfect world you can actually get 262144 from all 4 lotus pickers (with no recursion). Sure it requires 20 cards to pull off but i think you get the idea. Actually you can add in another 8 doublers (clever impersonator and copy enchantment) but i am not doing the math.

    Basic deck would be four of those. A bit of defense/pillowfort. A few doublers and a boseiju to make it an uncounterable fireball.

    EDIT: did the math for the extra 8 doublers, by the end you would have 67 108 864.
    That is 201 326 592 mana, with the boseiju (making it uncounterable), that is enough to kill every opponent at the table millions of times over.

    You could probably make a whole set based on christmas. Black (the vrinch/krampus) blue (snow stuff. Like snowmen) sant could be a PW and white...

    There are sites you can look for online. I wont support linka but you could use google.

    I also will not help with aizing (and some sites have a copyright blocker, so even with custom artwork they may still cancel the print)

    Honestly, given tbat .ost print comlanies also take a few weeks to complete an order, you should have done this earlier.

    Changing Keyword to Primal (or maybe Primal Edge, primal Form, Primal Heritage)

    I will use the work around to make it so he can not be killed by death touch.

    evèn wothout the extra effect. Oh i want to play counterspell. Oh i can use boseiju to pay an extra 1 and make it uncounterable.
    If you mean what I think you mean, that's wrong - you can't cast a spell, see how it's responded to, and then go back and decided to pay different additional costs. You can't kick an Urza's Rage after it's already on the stack to change it to the bigger effect.

    If you want to grant kicker, you can, instead of spelling it out: "Spells you cast have kicker N (or universally 1). Whenever you cast a spell, if it was kicked with this kicker..."

    The worst that this would require would be subtle redefinition of how the rules refer to the names or identities of kicker costs, and at best it works as-is and would only require some clarification.

    No no no, you misunderstood. You would have to decide before casting the card if you want to use boseiju. I am just saying if you are worried you may choose to pay that extra one. Basically self tax.

    I may make a few cards, some that just offer the additional cost, and some that have an effect for doing so. Of course tapping a creature (to me) seems a little too good for 1 mana.

    “You May pay an additional 1 as you cast spells.” is sweet enough to be a bonified mechanic!
    Won’t the “whenever” triggers following it ALL trigger from just one additional 1 though?

    I do lkle the extra 1 mechanic. I may make a few cards based on that idea
