I feel that Blighted Steppe's nickname should reference the fact that it is literally an area where you Congregate
. I'm pretty sure there's a word for that, but I'm drawing a blank.
Crumble to Dust is so close
to Sowing Salt that the only acceptable nickname here is "Sowing Dust".
My friends and I all call Endless One "Eldraziball". It's easier and more grokkable to do a Fireball reference than the technically more accurate Ivy Elemental reference.
Really, Graham? Giving Felidar Cub a nickname that references Silverchase Fox? You're not going to reference the fact that this is the fourth time
they've printed this exact card? (Keening Cub. Ronom Felidar. Felidar of Ancient Law.) The people need to know Graham! They deserve to know how silly things have gotten! Why doesn't WotC just reprint Keening Apparition!?!?
Hold on. In RoE we got Awakening Zone. So From Beyond needs to be Getting Out of Bed Zone, and whatever we get in the next Eldrazi-related block will be Going to the Kitchen and Turning on the Coffee Machine Zone.
I freely admit to getting this from MTGSalvation, but Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, and Dreamstone Hedron are Mind Stone, Minder Stone, and Mindest Stone, respectively.
Shoulda gone with a blood transfusion joke for Kalastria Healer. Vampire, doctor, draining ability. It's all right there.
FYI, the idea behind Chinese vampires hopping is that their bodies have succumbed to rigor mortis, so they can't move their joints well enough to walk.
I'd suggest a Mournwhelk reference for the nickname for Mire's Malace, to mirror the Muldrifter connection you made with Coastal Discovery, but, frankly, nobody cares nearly
enough about Mire's Malace or
Mournwhelk for it to be worth it.
Serene Steward: Everyone
You named your kid Penelope? My mom is named Penelope, too! Just as a heads up, though, be prepared for nobody
being able to spell her name right. I have, no joke, seen people spell my mom's name "Pinelape", "Penloope", and even "Pineapple".
