Sep 24, 2017I think if your meta allows it, Land Destruction makes sense. I run Pillage, and it's brutal mid to late game when you cast it twice in a turn. With the right mana base, double Sinkhole for is just absurd.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Sep 23, 2017I've been having so much success with No Mercy figured I should just mention it. I strongly recommend any list adds it. Discourages attackers so much, it really allows us to accumulate a sizable amount of card advantage that we can use at a later day. I may even test Dread for additional support to mirror this effect.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Sep 20, 2017Interesting idea.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
This would need to cost more mana. It's a much more powerful Overflowing Insight which has the same converted mana cost. You can also look at Increasing Ambition to see this card is severely undercosted.
Proper cost would be something like GGGWWWUUU.
Sep 19, 2017@viridiancircle, thanks for the detailed feedback.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Selena's Whip seems narrow be outside of limited or an environment driven by humans, but even getting +2/+0 and first strike on an equipment for a combined total of 3 mana is incredibly efficient and above curve for most equipment.
I feel it's worse than 1UB to draw 3, but that would be very powerful (probably too good). I love the idea of changing the card so it's Riddler's style in that the opponent never fully wins, but it'd be too powerful. Maybe if they guess the correct number, you still lose 3 life but the cards go to your graveyard.
I totally agree that the phrasing for Arnold Wesker is too verbose. I spent a lot of time trying to phrase the wording while still keeping the spirit of the design. It really isn't that complicated of a design, the main problem is you have to establish that Scarface if a legendary creature token and not a living thing which requires a lot of text.
I feel your version of Arnold Wesker is very good and certainly less wordy but I don't like the idea of Scarface being able to survive, yet alone attack and block without Arnold Wesker. I do like what you did in that Arnold Wesker supports Scarface.
I love Batman, so I'll think of some more designs and try to share some more! Glad these came out well.
Sep 17, 2017I guess this is interesting, but I tempted to ask why? This is so incredibly niche, almost to the point where it is overcosted. Perhaps this should lose Flash and just be a cantrip for G.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Also, if you don't have any cards in your graveyard, what happens?
Sep 17, 2017I am a big Batman fan so I created some top down Batman themed cards. Arnold Wesker, Master Ventriloquist is the one I spent the most time on out of the bunch, so I'd especially appreciate any thoughts on that design.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Sep 17, 2017Does Hope need to have a may trigger? The majority of players will always want to gain the life and it makes less experienced players feel bad when they miss beneficial triggers.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Desire is may be too good for limited/Standard. Look at Indulgent Tormentor for comparison. The others seem fine if not underpowered. IT's hard to evaluate because you get the ability when it is in play and later in the graveyard, but they abilities for the most part are subtle.
Sep 17, 2017I am looking for cards to support an [[Oloro, Ageless Ascetic]] deck with a major subtheme of life gain matters. I want the list to also be a midrange deck with control elements, but I am looking for good cards with lifelink, that enable life gain strategies, abilities that trigger based on life gain and other life gain matters cards.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Please do not recommend infinite combos.
Please do not recommend tutors.
I also am not interested in changing the commander.
Also, [[Serra Ascendant]] is banned in the play circles I play. It's omission is deliberate. I am also interested in playing Test of Endurance because the card doesn't do anything unless you are only winning the life gain battle and it only encourages more attacks directed towards us. For the most part, I play in a semi-competitive meta.
Life gain sources I am looking at include Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion and Blood Artist.
Examples of smaller aggressive creatures I am looking to run are Ajani's Pridemate, Gifted Aetherborn and Karlov of the Ghost Council.
Win conditions and bombs that I'm looking at include threats like Baneslayer Angel, Divinity of Pride, Drogskol Reaver and Sphinx of the Steel Wind.
Other sources of life gain I like include Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Sanguine Bond and Sunscorch Regent.
What are other good cards for a lifegain based deck? Bonus points for hidden gems and cards on the lower end of the converted mana cost spectrum.
Sep 17, 2017Why are these legendary?Posted in: Custom Card Creation
The first two seem pretty weak, particularly Basket of Light. Are these all supposed to be rare?
Basket of Pursuit seems to be the most interesting. I could see Basket of Pursuit having a "reveal a non legendary creature" rider added to it so players aren't revealing absurd things like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Progenitus, however the high mana cost and the drawback of the card may be enough to not need to implement a change like this.
Sep 16, 2017I'm also not fond a cycle of cards just to support the rarest card type, but these cards are also very powerful. Much more powerful than the Oath cycle by comparison.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Triumphant Gathering is absurdly powerful and undercosted. Compare it to Conflux to get a better idea of what costing something like this should be. It's also much easier win with than other alternate win conditions cards.
Sep 16, 2017I really love this a lot, although it can be extremely swingy depending on what is tutored for. Can't really contribute much on wording, but unfortunately based on how rules are now you need to make room for shuffle that library.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
It is probably too good that it let's you search your own library. If it's your library, you could just target something like Emrakul, the Promised End, and you have a 66% chance of getting to cast it for 3 mana. Searching an opponent's library doesn't ensure that something absurd will happen every time. If you still want to be able to target your own library this needs to cost more.
Sep 16, 2017I created a couple of bottom up legendary creature designs but I am having trouble naming them and coming up with flavor to justify their abilities. Bonus points for flavor text.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
CARD 1 1WB
Legendary Creature - ?
W, Discard a card: Gain 3 life.
B, Pay 3 life: Draw a card.
CARD 2 1U
Legendary Creature - ?
U: Reveal the bottom card of your library. You may play the revealed card if it is an instant or sorcery spell. (You still pay its mana cost.)
Sep 16, 2017I like the ability for Vathan, Bloodborn Ritualist. I feel it costs too much. Maybe it could have a way to protect itself, perhaps by gaining indestructibility. Otherwise maybe it could cost less. If you are worried about it being abused, say with something like Skullclamp, you could add a "only once per turn" clause.Posted in: Custom Card Creation
Sanguine Archbishop seems too efficient for that low mana cost. If this were an enchantment, it'd cost something like 5 or 6, as a creature, it should cost 4 or 5.
