I find it interesting that the two recurring themes of the designs are: A place where people duel, and a place where you find cards. That seems to be the basic thoughts we've all had.

Sadly given that very few of us (any?) have actually played at YJ, it's all we can do to either just make something generally related to card shops or reference something from Friday Nights

I think that's why the art has been lack luster...
But YJ just serves as the LGS in the series, so having broad mechanics that encompass this troupe is probably the best outcome.

Yellowjacket Legendary Land Tap to turn any Commander of your Deck into the card of a Loading Ready Run member (from the Opening of Friday), Commander gains Shroud.

At the end of the game, the player who lost must buy Magic Packs equal to the winning player's life point total.

Looks like my idea has sort of been done already.
I quite like mine though, so here goes:

Image

Site used, if people don't know where to make these, is http://magic.falseblue.com/
Looks like there's plenty of other places for this functionality as well though.

I can't do the art thingy so let's just do text:

Card Name: Yellowjacket
Types: Legendary Land

Card Text:
(tap): Add 1 colorless to your mana pool.
8 colorless, (tap), Sacrifice Yellowjacket: Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost 8 or less and put it on the battlefield, then shuffle your library.
(tap), Sacrifice Yellowjacket: Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card with converted mana cost 2 or less and put it on the battlefield, then put the rest of the cards revealed this way on the bottom of your library in any order.

Flavor Text:
Whether you need the very best or just the most recent, we have it... for a price.

ok here is my idea. because im a big comic guy and yellowjacket is a comic store i came up with this. can't come up with good flavor text though

Card Name: Yellowjacket
Types: Legendary Land

Card Text:
(tap): Add 1 colorless to your mana pool.
1 colorless, (tap), Add a "Pym Particle" counter to Yellow Jacket.

(tap), Sacrifice Yellowjacket: Target non-land permanent gains +X+X or -X-X where X is the number of pym particles on yellowjacket.

Flavor Text:
Whether to be as big as a giant or as small as an ant, yellowjacket holds the power

Expansion: LRR
Rarity: Rare

Holy crap... I just realized. Is Timmy holding The Inquisitor's Flail? Because... that's pretty amazing... it even seems like the kind of thing a Timmy would use

It could theoretically be retconned that way, but Timmy was printed many, many years before Equipment was thought of (let alone the Flail).
It's probably one of those cool coincidences. I mean, there are only that many designs for a flail right?

Well yea I realize Timmy was printed long before the flail but it makes me wonder if the flail was top-down designed as "The kind of equipment that would make a Timmy happy" and thus pictured appropriately

It would be really cool if that were true. Never heard anything about it, but I wouldn't put it past Wizard's...

So this is only a sketch so far, but since the video might go up tomorrow I thought I would upload this here first, and then add the proper version later.

So I thought the oracle text would be

tap for one colourless mana

or tap, pay three colourless and discard a card from your hand then draw a card. (basicly a cycling engine)

the flavour text would be. "Step right up, come buy our magic!" - Dan Spiller

If somebody knows how that oracle text would actually look then I would be grateful.

The congregate mechanic made me think of another fun card that could use it.

Lovin all the MTG videos guys, got an idea for the Yellowjacket Comics card though

Image

You can use it like a normal land
OR Purchase a card (draw one)
OR Spend a bit more to reserve the card you want (searching for it)
OR Wait for the shop to re-stock and try again (shuffling it all in to the library)

Given that the inspiration for this card was a shop dealing in trading cards,
I thought the abilities aught to mirror that. So the first one represents
selling a card to the shop, the second one would be buying a card and the
third would be trading one for an other.

I used the original shop-front as inspiration for the illustration, but decided
to make a fantasy representation of it for flavour.
