Unless there's a combo I'm missing, I think afterglow can cost less.
Likewise I think Rake and brassjaw can cost less. Then again, I'm thinking in terms of eternal cardpool. Maybe they're fine if there are ridiculously powerful creatures/artifacts in the set.
Good for multiplayer -- probably too good. Maybe make the cost XR, where X is the number of opponents?

They are mythic in both card rarity and lore, in deed and in scarcity.
These do not represent mythic deeds. What's the point of making them planewalkers? Just make them artifacts or enchantments.
Not only that, but your sample cards are thematically just stapled together abilities of each color.

How on earth do they propose to enforce this?
"That card you're playing was not bought here!"
I know there used to be a rule at one of the Local Game Stores I go to that customers weren't allowed to buy/sell cards to/from other customers except from the store employees since they're the ones trying to make money to pay for overhead to provide a place for customers to play MTG and other Trading Card Games/Collectible Card Games.
That's perfectly ok.

Will most definitely get the old ruling question regarding shuffling. If you're instructed to shuffle a deck, and then instructed to shuffle you deck, can you get away with only 1 shuffle for brevity's sake (since a properly randomized deck will still be properly randomized)? Normally the answer is no, but imagine asking your opponent to shuffle 4x a turn.
Mar 2, 2019mondu_the_fat posted a message on You would prefer cards that works as printed or as intended?As intended means anything new or novel is a negative in wizard's eye.Posted in: Magic General
As printed means quality control sucked, but it more fun for the players who discover it. The downside is that some cards may become useless/broken.
As a player, I prefer as printed.

Unfortunately its strong in such a way that makes it difficult to balance without completely ruining the card. At 1 CMC it is by far the strongest graveyard hate available
....Not even close. Tormod's is more powerful, despite the draw.
The problem here is that your opponent has to have a graveyard with juicy cards in it before you can cast it. As such, you will likely never cast it on turn 1. If you're not casting it immediately, then you're a sitting duck to discard, which is exactly what graveyard based combo decks will play, especially on game 2 and 3, and will mulligan into them to cast them on turn 1.
Tormod's on the other hand, you can cast on turn one and watch your opponent squirm around it (assuming you're on the play ). Tormod's is not that great either, because it is also vulnerable to discard on the draw. The draw a card is quaint, but the primary ability does not in any way constitute "strongest graveyard hate available".

In limited. come out to play can be a monster, since it pretty much reads "put creature in your hand into play". So likely rare. However, in constructed it get significantly weaker as the meta gets older. How about a consolation price if the creature you want played is named. Srcye? Draw a card?
Feb 20, 2019Falling moon is a feel bad card, especially in limited.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Reclamationist is undercosted. utopia tree is already decent (if a bit underwhelming as a rare), double mana+2 power is too much.
Illusionary conversion -- What is it's color? creature type? Why not just say "It's controller may pay X to turn in face up, where X is it's converted mana cost." The problem with not wanting to use morph is that you now have to use a lot of wording to describe an effect like morph. Just use morph.
TQuote from FreezingPoint »I don't think transforming a creature into an equipment is worth it.
You can enchant an opponent's creature. "That's a nice eldrazi you have. It would be a shame if it were turned into a spoon."
Feb 14, 2019Posted in: Custom Card CreationQuote from 1110mystic »What about:
Feast of Nightmares 2B
Destroy target creature. Unless that creature was enchanted or equipped, draw a card.
You might get away with this in limited as a rare.
Too strong in constructed. This is straight up 2 card advantage, like divination but better because your opponent loses his investment on the creature.

That has too many things stapled on to it.
Feb 6, 2019Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer FormatsQuote from Huggywow »Also if I was to make a lockdown and control deck, would I be using more spells than monsters in my decks. Because when I was making Golgari I was putting in too many spells and was wondering if I could run a lot in Azorius
You could run entirely creatureless, and find some other way to win.
For example, milling an opponent (millstone, grindstone), or something that creates creatures (kjedoran outpost. or a land that becomes a creature (mishra's factory), or even make your opponent draw himself to death (howling mine)
The beauty of having a creatureless deck is you can spam wrath of god without worrying about losing your creatures. That, and all your opponent's creature kill spells become worthless.
Feb 6, 2019negative p/t should never appear on commons, because that will ineviatably result in new players asking if being hit with a -1 power creature gives the opponent life.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Same deal with 0 toughness creatures, since now you have to explain the concept of state based effects.
