    Renegade Spark 1RR
    Enchantment - Aura {U}
    Enchant creature or planeswalker.
    When Renegade Spark enters the battlefield put a loyalty counter on enchanted permanent and it becomes a planeswalker and has:
    /+1\ This planeswalker deals 1 damage to up to one target player.
    \-1/ This planeswalker deals 2 damage divided as you choose among one or two targets.



    Note that an enchanted creature would stop being a creature.

    Are there any notable rarity downshifts (specifically for Pauper purposes?) I'm bad at seeing those things off the bat, being that I'm not familiar with older rarities.


    Not sure if they'll do anything, but Peace Strider and Pierce Strider got shifted to common.

    You and I are polar opposites. I feel it is one of the worst sets ever printed. Something tells me it probably falls between the two.

    Demonic Negotiation 1BB
    Legendary Sorcery {M}
    (You may cast a legendary sorcery only if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker.)
    Separate all non-land permanents into two piles. Exile all permanents in the pile of an opponent’s choice.
    Looking over the destruction he had wrought, Dralrume’s mouth twisted into a wicked sneer.

    Alternatively:
    Aggan, Calamity Incarnate 3WBR
    Legendary Creature - Human Warrior {R}
    First strike
    Aggan isn’t affected by spells or abilities that effect all creatures or permanents, or each creature or permanent.
    5WBR, Exile Aggan from your hand: Destroy all creatures. They can’t be regenerated. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast Aggan from exile for its mana cost.

    Demons shouldn't represent mercy, grace, pity, forgiveness, light, kindness, and all other typical white stuff. that's why demons shouldn't be white, because that would completely make pointless what demons for definition are.

    These are not white concepts, and even if they were, not every white card represents every aspect of white. So, IF a mono-white demon ever did get printed, it would likely be playing on the highly legalistic side of white's slice of the color pie, and maybe even cultivating a community that it might be in charge of.

    It's not inaccurate, its unspecific. Do remember that reminder text is plane English (or whatever language it is being printed in) so the concept of putting the card in your hand from your library is actually what is happening.

    I just want to remind people of a couple Key differences in the "Partner with...." mechanic

    (1) There is NO searching of the library. The card is put in hand from the library. No searching.


    This is wrong

    Quote from WotC »
    Each of them has the new ability partner with [the other]. That ability means two things. First, they'll come to each other's aid. Specifically, when one of them enters the battlefield, target player may search their library for the other, reveal it, put it into their hand, and shuffle their library. (Note that the reminder text summarizes this for brevity, but it is a standard search and shuffle.)



    Edit: SUPER NINJA'D guess that's what I get for citing sources

    Fomori Watch Captain 3RW
    Creature - Giant Warrior {R}
    Vigilance
    Whenever Fomori Watch Captain blocks or becomes blocked, flip a coin. If you win the flip, Fomori Watch Captain gains backswing until end of turn. (It deals regular, and last-strike combat damage.)
    3/7

    I really dislike the fact that the reprints weren't given appropriate flavortext and art for the the plane, this isn't a masters set, it has its own setting.

    You guys are really adamant about not putting reminder text down...

    chetoos - I get what you were going for here, but it just doesn't quite click for me.
    KarmaHoudini - Purify the Profane has WAY too much text on it (even when you drop the unnecessary "on the battlefield" clause from each option (another side note: when talking about converted mana cost (Spell it out) you use highest, not greatest) This wording actually allows the effect to fit on a card. Balance wise, I feel like this is expensive enough to be balanced, but it is a strong card. (also include rarities on your cards)
    KarmaHoudini 2 - Mirridin Beseiged (Mirrodin Besieged, check your spelling) doesn't really tell the story it advertises. Mechanically the card is fine... not sure what blue brings to the card...
    AspiringInsomniac - Burning time is just... bad? I feel like I must be missing out on something here.
    TotallyHaywire - Mind of Fire is excellent in all but name. I like the build up, the card filtering is really strong, the damage I would rather see restricted to creatures ("up to one" tech could be used to prevent you from having to blast your own), and the final chapter really feels like a payoff. Balance wise this needs to either cost 2-3 more, or reduce the draw and discard amounts by 1. As it stands, you get 2RU worth of abilities on the turn you play it, and that's not a good thing for sagas.
    JaceTheBodySculptor - I really like the flavor of Invention of the Thopter as homage to the Mirrodin flavor text of Ornithopter. My only nitpick on the card is that I wish the second chapter just had you sacrifice two servos, as it feels super wrong when you play multiples.
    Forestsguy - Cymede's Prophecy is a great flavor for a saga. This plays in the big risk big reward section of the RU color pie, and with the right cards supporting this it could be really good, but I'm not sure how often this will actually hit chapter six. an excellent example of mythic rare.

    Winner is JaceTheBodySculptor
    HMs to Forestsguy and TotallyHaywire

    Quote from Rakath »
    My only realy problem with these cards is the name "Will". Its just kind of funny for such an extremely common real world name to show up on a magic card. When is "Chad, Lord of the Multiverse" coming out?
    Do you really want Gideon to be Lord of the Multiverse?
    In my defense Will is a way more common and generic name than Gideon. It's on the same level as Bob, Bill, John, Steve, etc.
    It might also be the nickname factor, I doubt people would bat an eye at Robert, Stephen, or William.

    Fortunately the part of the reminder text they chose to omit does nothing after deck construction, so its not like you forget to do part of the action midway through your game. It's mostly a "wait how do you have two commanders?" followed by "oh, I didn't know that, maybe I'll check those out and build a deck later."
