    [b]Oezon, the Formless[/b] 3
    Legendary Creature (Mythic)
    Flash
    You may cast face-down spells as though they had flash by paying GUR rather than paying their mana cost.
    If permanent you control turning face up would cause an ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
    2/2

    *FYI Oezon depicts a face-down morph creature, as if it has nothing to switch back to*

    [b]Ixidor, Shaper of Dreams[/b] 1GUR
    Legendary creature - Human Wizard (Mythic)
    At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player manifests a card from their hand. (They put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 colorless creature. They may turn it face up at any time if it's a creature by paying its mana cost.)
    2U: Turn target face-down creature face up. If it isn't a permanent card, exile it.
    2/4

    [b]Ebzarat, the Endhowler[/b] 3GUR
    Legendary Creature - Eldrazi Werewolf (Mythic)
    Trample
    Whenever a permanent you control transforms or is turned face up, you may pay 2. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that permanent. It gains haste.
    Whenever a player casts their second spell each turn, each colorless creature you control deals 1 damage to that player and you draw a card.
    5/5
    Subtheme: Suicide, Reanimator

    [b]Abrisir the Mad[/b] 1BR

    [b]Iasta, Kragma Seer[/b] 3BR
    Legendary Creature - Minotaur Shaman (Mythic Rare)
    When Iasta, Kragma Seer enters the battlefield, each player discards their hand, then draws four cards.
    Each Minotaur and each Shaman creature card you own that isn’t on the battlefield has madness. The madness cost is equal to its mana cost. (If you discard a card with madness, discard it into exile. When you do, cast it for its madness cost or put it into your graveyard.)
    At the beginning of each player's upkeep, Iasta deals 2 damage to that player unless they discard a card.

    The vibe I'm getting from the court summons and art style give me a medieval-Arthurian England/France setting. Knights, jousting, perhaps a return of. Exalted?

    The sigil behind the set makes me think Fleur de Lys, and the font I feel has sort of stained glass look.

    Omnath, Locus of Life GWUR
    Legendary Creature - Elemental (Mythic)
    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may have it become a 3/3 Elemental creature with haste that's still a land. If you don't, put two +1/+1 counters on target Elemental you control.
    Whenever another Elemental you control dies, you may pay 1. If you do, return it to your hand. If it was a land creature, put it onto the battlefield tapped instead.
    3: Exile target land or Elemental you control, then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.
    4/4

    Mergatroid Jones: They did do a similar thing to Shrieking Pyre with both Harvest Pyre and Magmatic Sinkhole but it's a design that's fresh enough from both those cards to be strong. Conclave Cantor is really sweet and I love the flavor text.

    TheRavenManIsSquee: This can be a very strong card with enough mill. You could potentially drop this down on turn 2 as a 4/3 flyer that can draw you two cards. Thankfully it's in Bolt range for modern players. It's strong but not oppressive I would say.

    Stille_Natch: I feel like this should be legendary - and possibly black? The idea that you need to delve away the right cards for this to work is a little annoying - if you pay the full price you don't actually get anything from this card. But in a deck built around it, it's very good.

    Sephon19: You're missing the "converted mana cost X" section on the card (otherwise why would there be an X you know?). Without that X it's obviously way too strong, and otherwise it's a fusion of Wargate and Chord of Calling so nothing particularly innovating about that.

    Totally Haywire: I like the cannibalistic approach to the flavor of Delve, but I find it harder to fit for Convoke (maybe if your creature was pluralized?). Obviously granting delve/convoke to any spell in the game is freakishly strong, and I think that 2 life and a sacrifice might be a bit too low a cost to enable it (possibly tapping or some extra mana?). I like the design a lot though, it's very impressive.


    I think TotallyHaywire steals the win for me, our next challenge is: Manland Tribal. HMs to Mergatroid and TRMIS

    bravelion83: It's a cool throwback to Sarcomite Myr, and it's a strong limited beater especially with the reduced black cost. Might be too efficient though.

    Eventide Sojourner: A colorless elemental does seem a little weird tbh, and the transformation cost is very steep. But the flip side is very destructive, but the fact it has only four keywords on a five color creature is a bit weird.

    netn10: It's some nice superfriends tech and I like how it gives an advantage to opponents in other colors. It's a cute design and I like it a lot, although the green ability is definitely too strong.

    Mr. Rithaniel: It's a good manland and it's splashability is very good as well. It's a bit slow however, sacrificing a creature and paying at the least 2 mana for just one +1/+1 counter on it. I get that it's stronger every time, but compared to Raging Ravine (which did see some standard play) I think this could be a little stronger.

    Hemlock: This is a nice twist on the Silence effects, and I'm interested in how the Kicker would be beneficial. You'd need to cast an additional five spells that turn to make a return on your mana investment, so I feel it's still quite balanced if not a bit underpowered. It probably does wonders for xerox decks at the least. It's a good throwback to Grand Arbiter Augustin as well.

    Jimmy Groove: I like that you have some measure of control on how much damage you can deal, 3-6 damage to all creatures and players at instant speed can be very powerful, and the equipment reduction cost isn't negligible either.

    Plunderer of Worlds, who turned out to be Moiza Nikhon, cunning merchant planeswalker from Gaata, keeps preying on conflict between Bajig Archduchy and Republic of Hazba on Hazunda. In his greed, he unleashes more and more explosive secrets that were prohibited on Gaata and other militarized worlds long ago, which leads to more and more casualties and devastation. What can stop him if both sides of conflict are too blinded by hate so they can't see the bitter end for all living beings in the poor world?

    Whenever you activate an ability of a permanent you control, if you sacrificed one or more creatures to activate that ability, you may pay 1. If you do, copy that ability and you may choose new targets for the copy.

    I think it's no surprise to anyone that Paradox Engine got the ban. Iona makes a lot of sense as well.

    I'm excited to finally see more Painter's Servant shenanigans.

    Mr. Rithaniel: This could be both very powerful but also very dangerous. In fact I feel the greater the mana investment the more risky this card becomes. You would have to fit it into a deck that can make use of cards in your graveyard, but I can see this being a fair card.

    kwanyeegor: So this card is the lands equivalent of Past in Flames and it's very odd, especially with lands like Evolving Wilds that sacrifice themselves from the graveyard - would that not be possible then? - I like the idea behind it but you may need a different way to go about making it more functional.

    Eventide Sojourner: I think it's interesting that you allowed this card to exile lands if you want to hit something with 0 cmc. And yet I think it's a good card that makes me think of the Blue Shoal in terms of power level.

    bravelion83: This does quite a lot when you think about it. Being able to give itself trample makes connecting with an opponent all the more easy, and if you don't need to fly past your opponent then you're getting even bigger as time goes by. I think this sets itself ideally as a five mana 4/4 or a six mana 6/6. Any less than that and you're risking it dying before it gets big, and any bigger than that is worth keeping one mana up for haste instead. It's very powerful that's for sure.

    Jimmy Groove: It's interesting to give creatures to your opponents as a way to draw cards for yourself. I'm not sure exactly what kind of deck would want to play this card, but I'd be interested to see what can be done with it.

    IcariiFA: Now this does an interesting thing of devouring your opponent's creatures before devouring your own. After all, Devour is a "may sacrifice", meaning with enough mana this guy can just eat up all your opponent's creatures and then leave all yours to attack an empty board. This can also hurt people's brains with all the math it's doing, especially when you start devouring your own creatures too.
