Re: Design a Card

@SixFootTurkey You're probably right, man. Having such an expensive effect on a pretty good stick is kinda asking for trouble. What if the ETB effect said: "When NAME enters the battlefield, you may pay 2BB. If you do, do the life thing"? That would make it a tad more reasonable, and the c...

Re: Design a Card

http://i68.tinypic.com/30cc1zl.jpg How would you evaluate this? Is it too strong for the cost, or is the effect justifiably tough to make full use of to not be bonkers? You can compare it to Repay in Kind . Apocalypse Rider is arguably much, much better, but I think Repay in Kind is overcosted by a...

Here's the finished version of Piercing Embrace. I made the set symbol fit with the card frame as well.

Re: Design a Card

It actually is uncommon, it's just difficult to see on the card render. Might try photoshopping that to be more clear. But thanks for the input!

Re: Design a Card

How about 1B or BB for the aura swap? Arcanum Wings costs 2 to cast and 3 to aura swap, and it doesn't debilitate the creature it's on.

I know this super broken with big auras like Eldrazi Conscription, but in a closed limited environment, I think it could be pretty damn fun.

I tried making a little kappa dude from Kamigawa past. They were extinct when we last visited there, and all that remained for us to see was a shell.

Re: Design a Card

Sorry if I was being unclear. I meant compared to "Activate this ability only once each turn", a tap symbol doesn't use a whole line of text.

Re: Design a Card

Making him tap is probably not a bad way to go. Saves some space on the card as well. Thanks for the input!

Re: Design a Card

Hmm, yea, that does seem like a bit too much power. Any suggestions on what I could do to nerf him a little? "Activate this ability only once each turn", maybe?

Re: TTC 100 - PAX Prime 2015 Recap

"Charm lands" is a pretty good name.
I think "Zen lands" could work as well. They're from Zendikar (duh), and they require some amount of patience if you want to use them right away. Gotta wait for those basics to be out, gotta be zen.

Re: Design a Card

But, uh.. Spell Blast was an uncommon in M14. Anyway, your card seems fun. Maybe a bit on the strong side, but the casting restriction balances it out, I suppose. Edit: I did another little card. This one's for an "alternate win condition" design contest. And I know, the wording is a littl...

Re: Design a Card

With the Haste on him, the first player will get to use him, then the next player only gets to gain control of a tapped creature. But I wouldn't want it to just have "untap CARDNAME" tacked onto the ability, since that could become a combo engine. Maybe something like, "When CARDNAME...

Re: Design a Card

Yea, you have a point. I'm just not completely sure if upping his p/t will make him any more balanced. What if I made the "gain control of" effect cost a little more? Then your opponent wouldn't be able to grab it immediately if you cast it on curve.

Re: Design a Card

Hey, I've got a couple of cards I made for a color-shifty design challenge. The first one is a color-shift of Relentless Assault. http://i60.tinypic.com/296gkg8.jpg The second one isn't directly tied to a previously printed card, but more the general feel of a color. In this case, red. http://i62.ti...

Re: Design a Card

Reguhl may be a bit strong. He would be awesome in a soulshift deck. But its mostly the unblockable that has me wondering. I figured him to be a little on the powerful side, but it turns out he's not very easy to balance. Changing his converted mana cost can really change how he plays. And I'm not ...

Re: Design a Card

How would you price this? Unchanging Loyalty - Enchantment Whenever you would remove loyalty counters from a planeswalker you control to activate one of its abilities, you may instead pay an amount of mana equal to twice that number to activate that ability. That's a tough one. 4WW maybe? The fact ...
