    Mothdust Changeling is what ur looking for.

    T1 Mothdust Changeling
    T2 Magda, Brazen Outlaw, tap both to Mothdust ability, get two treasures.
    T3 Tap Magda & Mothdust to make two more treasures. 7 Mana on turn 3 sounds pretty nice.

    Forgot to play any dwarf or changling to search your deck for a dragon. That's pretty fast and brutal.

    I find it funny how the colors shifted from the very beginning. In the beginning returning to the battlefield without a drawback was exclusively a white ability. Black could but hurt you or the creature in some way. Now white is supposed the color that returns it to hand and red returns it to the battlefield. Although almost all the red cards that do it are phoenixes. I'm sure that was just a decision made because a phoenix is associated with fire. Red is fire. It's not really a red ability though.

    The first card should tax you, not the opponent. I can see a game where both players get one out. If a player cracks a fetch or something of that nature then both players can empty their library of planes. If it's going to be a tax on the opponent then it should say when the second land is put into the battlefield.

    I agree completely with the above poster. The effect does feel more white red than white blue but it's such a close margin that either would work. Could also make it an instant that bounces it and then that would feel more blue red.

    I believe it was worded pretty close to the best way and it makes sense. All your dudes become copies of your best dude and all your opponent's creatures become copies of their worst creature. Pretty neat idea. And I vote for Communal Link. The OP name doesn't show yours getting better. Original sounds like all downside.

    Yes those were some good games and it's nice to see you grow as a competitive player. I did not see a single misplay on your end at all. Very well done. Your deck didn't seem to let you down either. Lands were right on time or the vial was there to bail you out. Really good games. Thank you for taking the time to upload them. I don't have an example right now, but I wonder if some of the niche cards may be better as SB cards. And strengthen the main with Lurras and Apparition?

    Like I said it's probably not going to happen until a big YouTuber discovers it or until you put up a 5-0. Looking at your record it's not hard to believe that the deck is performing. Even about half your loses were with a game win. Meaning you even have game in those matchups. Maybe a different sideboard or a few tweaks here or there and maybe you'll be able to raise the win rate even higher. I'm sure at some point you'll play against a YouTuber and they'll get spanked and it'll get out there. While I understand that that is what you are wanting it also is good that you have this hidden gem that boasts such a great winning rate. Could maybe take it to an event when paper magic starts back up and take home the 1st place prize. It'll all work out in the end.
    Have you put any thought in if you would play the spoiled God card?
    Have you considered playing anymore Apparition? It is so strong. I was worried about the potential blow outs but the card has tested and played very well. Not really an occurrence that happens all that often.

    So combo is a 4+ card combo that requires a 7 Mana sorcery to win?

    I got to say that last version looks great!

    I just wanted to see if a spell that literally has no effect at 1 Mana could actually be too good. It has a million uses like you all said. Would be the engine for a Paradox Engine deck. Ironically enough. Enables storm to go off. Brain freeze after a little digging could mill a good amount of cards, grapeshot doing additional damage, etc.
    This was a good exercise and I appreciate the responses. Maybe make it cost 2 cards in graveyard to recast would make it balanced?
    Yes it's based off of the cantrip in DnD. They are heading to make more cards from it so I wanted to follow that avenue.
    Lastly, and yes I know it sucks, but this would have to be a rare. It's at least a better pick up than One with Nothing. LoL. We'd fight to see which is the best "bad" card in magic. I think this one could take the cake.

    Exile Prestidigitation as it resolves.
    You may exile a card from your graveyard to cast Prestidigitation from exile without paying it's Mana cost.

    While the God card isn't that great as it can't be tutored with Stoneforge it is pretty great as a good bit of his dudes do have some nasty abilities. Thalia being 4/1 firststrike and vigilance would control the board very well. Apparition being a 4/2 with vigilance means you don't want to block it and kill it and you can't really afford to attack into it as it'll just get it's EtB trigger again... But the icing on the cake has to the Captain. Midish game when you get to 5 Mana he'll be able to sac to prevent any sorcery speed spell such as most sweepers and then get it back to cast and get another 1 drop from the deck. Continuously growing his position while making removal very hard to cast.
    IDK if it'll make it into his final cut but doesn't really look that bad. Worst case scenario is it's still a beater when drawn after a sweeper or whatever.

    They seem cool and decently powered. I'd say the first answered prayer is the most printable version of it. 1 Mana to exile any nonland is too strong. Even with the angel factor.

    Return target creature card you own from exile to the battlefield under your control.

    Why does everyone look at me that way?!?

    Target creature you control gains indestructible until end of turn. If damage would be dealt to it by a red source you may gain life equal to the damage dealt.


    “RUN!”

    Side note. Meat is meat. For some reason I love that flavor text!

    Thank you all for the comments. I made the corrections on the cards. White didn't have sacrifice and the green one didn't say anything about shuffling. And outside the game. Good catches.
    Yes the names were originally intended to be based off of Mythology but the last 2 I didn't really like the names of the characters so went a little different route. Hades was intended to be changed. Not a typo. Haden Stone does sound a little better. If they were stone of then Hades would sound better. My opinion but there ya have it.
    Someone mentioned about recurring them. That is kinda the point in a sense. Exile isn't a direction I want to go in. Because in the block I'm currently working on these objects are very sought after. The block is heavily multicolor with good fixers so while it is a strain to get the correct colors, as it should be in a multicolor deck, it is still very possible. But these are the relics that power the plane... Well they are believed to be but in the final set the plane's real power source is discovered and used.
