So here's that creature I was talking about in the earlier post: Essence (2B) Creature - Alien Thief (Uncommon) Whenever Essence Thief deals combat damage to a creature add one mana of one of that creature’s colors to your mana pool.

Re: Design a Card

JackSlack, one last concern regarding the ultimate - another templating one. A nonpermanent card that is face down (manifest, etc) will end up drawing the game. You could get around this by putting each card under a random player's control (though the more random we get the more red it feels). Othe...

I feel like this line of thinking is akin to saying, "It's okay if you have a Black Lotus, because everyone else gets to have a Black Lotus too." If you introduce fast mana like this into any format (even Standard), you're going to have very swingy games in which the person who plays more ...

Re: The Sphinx taught me much

You might want some insurance against aggro, since Perilous Vault is both slow and kind of a nonbo with your permanents. How about Aetherspouts? It even synergizes with the mill plan.

After he draws his cards. Essentially, you need to finish resolving Fascination before the mill triggers can start doing so. (The triggers are placed on the stack during the resolution of the spell, but don't begin to resolve until Fascination is finished resolving.)

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

The fact that it's a creature is not a qualifier for controlling it, just for gaining control of it. I'd like to add an analogy: if you had targeted an animated Gideon with Banisher Priest's ability (which says "exile target creature for as long as you control Banisher Priest"), it'd be c...

I know that Conley Woods was toying around with Dictate + Deflecting Palm earlier this Standard season. It ends up quadrupling the damage coming in because of how replacement effects work (for example, let's say your opponent attacks with a Siege Rhino, and you cast Deflecting Palm. As you're the pl...
