    It's probably obvious by now, but there's personal stuff making me drop out. Apologies.

    But I hope it's true.

    I could actually really get behind the new plot. And the Praetor civil war could be awesome.
    Will we make new Praetor cards, or use the old. I've been having various issues with time I expect to disappear in the next few days.
    I like more the irony of Karn being the new Father of Machines than Tezzeret. Especially since (canon-wise, at least) Tezzeret has a mind-bug in his head that will prevent him from being disloyal to Bolas.

    Slaughter the Meek 4BB
    All creatures get -1/-1 until end of turn. Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from play this turn, draw a card.
    The eagerness of new recruits far outweighs their usefulness in the battlefield.

    Next: It makes us love.

    T: Add 1 for each snow permanent you control.

    Next Card:
    Terror of Kruin Pass

    If the Mirrans win, it has to be an absolute victory, otherwise it's not a victory. The Phyrexians can spread from a single drop of the oil.
    That's why my intention is to have the set be based just before the Purification, and have the Purification as a card.

    I though about making this set, too. It is an interesting experiment on the set design level.

    A few things I thought about, what I want in a Mirrodin Pure-set:
    * I want both Pristine Talisman and Suture Priest in it

    I don't know about Suture Priest, but Pristine Talisman is definitely in.
    * I want to play "Light Mirror" to NPH in as many ways as possible, just as Shadowmoor played "Dark Mirror" to Lorwyn (many following points include this)
    * I want to balnce it with New Phyrexia faction-wise; for each Phyrexian card in NPH one Mirran card in MRP and vice versa (the color distribution is another matter) - this overrides the balancing of MRP with the rest of the block

    I'm kind of picturing this set more as a replacement than a mirror. It's why I mentioned the ratios being the same as NPH (I'm sorry, but I always see NPH as Neil Patrick Harris).
    * I want lifetrips that gain life rather than make someone lose life on some spells

    You mean spells that say "Gain one life" as an extra line of text? Not very problematic, on commons and suchlike.
    * I want to see un-compleated Phyrexians in just the way we saw compleated Mirrans

    I have no idea where to go with that in design. Something like:
    Mirran Negator 3BBB
    Creature - Minion
    Whenever ~ deals damage to a player, that player sacrifices that many permanents.
    * I want to have a counterpart to Phyrexian mana - probably monocolored hybrid, but potentially something else.

    An idea I had was something like 2/W. Not as strong or as awesome as Phyrexian Mana, though...
    Are you set on the name for the first one? "Karn Compleated" or "Karn, father of Machines" sound much more fitting since after all people will wonder: Why is Karn suddenly called Yawgmoth?
    I'm totally lost on the Koth/Tezzeret planeswalker. Why would the block have the same 'walker twice? Why would the block want twice the same 'walker twice?

    Koth is because I kind of envision Koth as the protagonist and giving him two cards would do it. It would be weird though, and possibly create some amusing Limited interaction. Tezzeret was a pure maybe, so it goes off into the "No" pile. And Karn could just be named Father of Machines. I just really love Yawgmoth.
    Wouldn't MRP just look like NPH in the moment before Mirrodin wins by some Deus ex Machina?

    That is the problem with my current design. Or, as I like to call problem, "WE INTENDED IT THAT WAY IT IS AWESOME"
    Quote from Tranquilo
    This has to be one of the best ideas I've seen on this subforum in months.
    I'm in if you need some card designer.

    Suggestion: start with the set skeleton.
    1) Number of cards in the set.
    2) Rarity breakdown.
    3) Color breakdown.
    4) Color breakdown by rarity.
    5) Type breakdown by color/rarity.

    It's tough, but I can help you if you need some guidelines.

    All help would be more than welcome. I'm putting you on the first post as designer, anyhoo. I'll try to come up with a skeleton.
    Quote from Raptor1210
    I think this is a great idea. I should be able to help with the Technical/Development side of the set, I'm not so good at the Design side though. :-/:D

    Most excellent. Into the first post you go.

    Tricia Helfer would be very good, but I would personally go for Emily VanCamp. I love her more and more with each episode of Revenge.

    I really really really like Bolas/Bolas.
    Alternatively, we could have Bolas/UBTezz.

    Goyf and removal both hit the graveyard. Therefore, they both kill and do not kill each other. It's Schrodinger's Goyf.

    A while back, I had a spell:
    Target Targeter 1UU
    Target target targets target target.

    A cool way to actually make the Russian doll card in a legal way is:
    Cloner 3
    Artifact Creature - Golem
    ~ comes into play with a split counter on it.
    3, remove a split counter from ~: Put a copy of ~ into play.

    savage auras remember me bant GWU colors and primordial hunger RWG colors

    since last planechase dont follow a rule for the deck colors (we had five color and mono color decks)

    If this is the case, I'd also find it hard to imagine Ninjas branching out into green.

    Thanks for the idea.
    Sounds nice, now I have to think of a name for the ghost.
    You're not too overboard.
    I'll ask my friend about the plotline.
