    Looks like there's room for a wurm token, a 7/7 Eldrazi with annihilator 1 token, and a 6/12 construct with trample, but surely that would break the bank

    Here. I fixed it. 😂😝

    Hot Air W
    Sorcery
    Madness R
    Hot Air may only be cast from your graveyard or from exile.
    Put Hot Air into your hand as it resolves.


    The issue with this card is probably that the only way to get rid of it is to shuffle it into its owner's deck. I think White might be the third color to want to do this sort of thing anyways, and Boros identity kind of avoids durdle at all costs

    Dueling Grounds! Also evasion is good. Finest Hour is the power. Don't go too wide on creature base. Might of Oaks gets Rafiq in kill range by itself, might be worth trying.

    I agree with Alpha on most points. It isn't too powerful and it does work as intended. Wild Mongrel isn't even a powerful card anymore. I don't understand why this is even really bring discussed. It gets better, but still likely not playable. The one with reach is better in formats that would want this effect. Can block Delver.
    The real power level comes from lootings. Especially the Faithless variety. It basically turns it into a delayed Divination. That also isn't too powerful.
    My gripe with the card is that it's red. I get the name of the card makes it red.... Or blue, but the effect is clearly white. Being a mechanic that helps you against discard us already in the white color pie. Which is where this would probably shine. They had something in Kamagawa block I believe it was. Found it Pure Intentions.
    Plus it's basically a do nothing spell. White does that the best. It's a meme at this point but kinda true.
    The only part I disagree with Alpha on is that they wouldn't print this card into standard. I'd mostly just point at One with Nothing . They have printed some hot garbage in the past. This just fits the bill for a powerful effect that could see a rare printing.


    I love Pure Intentions, but it's so hard to get it to work. You have to play Hive Mind and then Windfall, or trick your opponent into actually pointing a Chain of Smog copy at you. Pure Intentions is not at all like the card I've made, because you can't use it for looting or discard outlets. I think Hot Air has basis in being Red. All colors have flashback stuff, but I think the most iconic flashback spells have been cemented as red; so casting red instants and sorceries out of the graveyard feels natural. And red even has blatant anti-opponent's-discard as well from Ignorant Bliss. As for white getting only bad stuff, I think the string of Sevinne's Reclamation et al (white is the color of Sun Titan!) have all been rather powerful things that only white gets to do. And One with Nothing is legit with Sudden Substitution, so even that has a point now.

    (Though Pure Intentions also has Mangara's Blessing in the buddy pool. Always wanted to counter a Liliana with one of those.)

    Looking at the closest similar card. Making it so it returns only once a turn is a good fix.


    I imagine the closest card is Squee, Goblin Nabob, or Exile into Darkness/Death of a Thousand Stings. I think these cards have benefit over the one I've designed as they work manalessly (Squee actually can be used for a lot of discard outlets that ask for a creature card as well, of which there are several good ones like Survival of the Fittest and Tortured Existence.) They also provide their own function without help from other cards, which is some amount of value. So I wanted this to be repeatable and inexpensive enough to actually be a card I'd want to play.


    I think this really wants to be an equipment with a Deus Ex Machina ability.


    So like it would wheel people into four cards every time you equipped it? The man's done it, he's saved the card game again

    Basically a hand-filler and discard outlet buddy; lets you durdle around with looting/rummaging or remove the potential drawbacks of things like Wild Mongrel without Madness or the like. I'm not sure whether the sorcery speed justifies the very cheap cost; let me know if you think it's too strong. I think sorcery speed might be important here to allow graveyard hate to work against it.

    Back in the day, Old Fogey and I remember when Dinosaurs were eratta'd to "lizards"


    It was a sad day for lizard tribal when they were errata'd back. Why can't they be "dinosaur lizards?" Why aren't crocodiles lizards?

    Lizard Warrior and Viashino Warrior are sooooo different, right?

    You may have Future Self enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature you control. If you do, that creature gains Hexproof until end of turn.

    You may have Cloneling enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature you control, except it has "U: Return this to its owner's hand."

    I am convinced this is a scientific test to see how much you can charge people to buy almost nothing.


    Ya did you not see the full text basic lands? They are seriously treating the market like a bunch of donkeys. Sooner or later, this *****'s gonna blow up in their face and no one will play this stupid game. WotC brass is seriously annihilating the game. I miss WotC being a small company run by passionate people Frown Frown Frown


    It's stupid, and it wasn't funny enough to make me Laugh Out Loud, but it got an Inner Mind Chortle from me. Won't buy, but I appreciate it for what it is- too expensive.

    15 shocklands for 120 bucks (2 allied shocks and 1 enemy shock per chunk) might be a decent deal for singles. Might tank the price of some of them, but who's to say? Shocklands will pretty much always be good. It's a little bit tempting.

    I approve of owls. This is promising, maybe I'll finally cave and get one of these. Owls good.

    Quote from Mystic_X »
    I'm still yearning for Secret Lair: Power 9, for the low cost of one kidney and a pound of flesh nearest my heart.
    Normally I'd be opposed, but surely, encouraging organ donation would be a reasonable and acceptable one-time reprint exception for the reserved list to be broken, right?


    See, you think it'll work out that way, but someone else will donate your kidneys first if that happened.
