Quote from BoomerAang SquadCould this be the art for White Sun's Zenith?
If so, it looks like it'll either be token production or a Glorious Charge effect.
Also, I think the blue one will be a Mind Spring that shuffles.
Quote from ludd_gangI have to say it is very confusing that the Mirran orb has a Phyrexian picture while the Phyrexian orb has a Mirran picture.
Quote from Guinea PigTerrain is taken by Melt Terrain, isn't it? Might be Gorge, Portal, Slag instead.
The dragon-like image might be a drake. I know they're not supposed to have arms but if it's a drake that metalcrafts into a larger version...
Huh, we have a result for image, and an art where a dragon sees a greater image of itself. Checking the orb results. Can't literally be Greater Image assuming that the trainee is in, but that may be the right direction.
Quote from clan_iraqDo you want me to elaborate my posts, so that those without basic intuition skills can understand what I am saying by guiding them step by step through it?
Etched Oracle is a card in Fifth Dawn
Etched Oracle used a mechanic "Sunburst", having a 5x color theme on its art.
Scars of Mirrodin has a card named "Etched Champion"
"Etched Champion" has 5x colors in its art.
"Etched Champion" will not use sunburst.
Another mechanic is returning from Mirrodin.
This mechanic has been heavily guessed at as "imprint"
One way "Etched Champion" could interact with a 5x color 'pseudo-sunburst' theme would be to have an imprint that counts the colors of the imprinted card. This is neither confirmed as what it will be, nor official in any way- it is speculative
This thread asks for possible "Sunburst Friendly" mechanics that could explain how "Etched Champion" will work- in terms of flavor, art and abilities.
I speculate that one possibility is the above "Imprint colors" possibility.
Hence I speculate that one possible card design for "Etched Champion" could be:
Etched Champion 3
Artifact Creature - Construct
Imprint - When Etched Champion enters the battlefield, you may exile a card from your hand, then put a +1/+1 counter on Etched Champion for each color in the exiled card's mana cost.
1, remove four +1/+1 counters from Etched Champion: Target player draws three cards
This is not a spoiler, but simple speculation that the already spoiled cardname and art could be something similar to what is above. At the same time, I speculate that such a card would likely have both a +1/+1 counter theme as well as a "remove-counters-to-draw-cards" theme, as these were the mechanics featured on its predecessor.
Is that better?
