Question: Phelddagrifs all come from the mysterious plane of Canada, as such they don't actully like fighting, but are at the same time to polite to say so when summoned by mages for battle. The things you opponent gets are the Phelddagrifs way of saying "I'm really very sorry". ;D
Flavor Text: Don't pick at it, it'll only get worse.

Question: She is such a shining beacon of the Bant way of live, than her influence is even capable of touching creatures of Alara's other shards, to bad for them that her instilled stoicism only plays up to the strenght of Bant's way of war.
Flavor Text: Even from the death she brings, life springs a new.

Question: Why does Bant Sureblade only get his bonus when you control another multicolored permanent?
Flavor Text: Treva's Ruins.

Though Bant is my favorit shard, I do feel this Bant theme might be just smidge to constraining if carried on for much longer.

Question: This card actually refers to Plato's, I think, theory of the ideal, in that there's an ideal form for everything, from chairs to people, and everything on earth is just a reflection or image of it. The arbiter pulls the ideal version of the creature/thing from Nyx, which makes it the enchantment version of the thing. As for why he has to untap for it, it's in the name of the ability. He is inspired and as such searches for inspiration. If he finds it, in the form of a creature, artifact, or land, he pulls it from the constellation world of Nyx.

Question: Where does the Rakshasa Vizier get strength from Delving?

Question: Since the Canopy Dragon doesn't normally fly, it takes all of its musculature to fly, which means that it loses trample.

Question: The Feral Hydra's feral nature makes it incredibly hard to control as such any mage that does summon one won't be able to stop the hydra from snacking on any yummy mana treats thrown it by other nearby mages.
Flavor Text: "Talk about a weed getting out of control!"

New theme: Tribal, nice broad theme.

Question: The Superion draws strength from creature mana more so than that of the plane itself. Under normal circumstances, it would almost always be from the other Myr looking to it for protection, but all creature-produced mana is equal in its eyes.
Flavor Text: You wouldn't like Myr when they're angry.

Question: How many Goblins would it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Question: Depends on the plane. On Dominaria, a Jamuraan goblin might throw it at you as a weapon, while a Shivan goblin might divine its purpose and only take one. The rest would probably just crush it or eat it. Kamigawan akki will probably throw it at you as a weapon, while Lorwyn boggarts would probably steal it and hide it as a prank. Mirrodin goblins would probably screw it in, and then try to figure out how to overcharge it, most likely unsuccessfully. On Rakdos, a Boros goblin would likely break it and attach it to a stick as a weapon. Gruul goblins would likely just smash it underfoot. Rakdos goblins would likely break it and use it to cut themselves and others in a ritual. Izzet goblins would likely add it to an experiment as a blinking light. On Tarkir, Mardu and Temur goblins alike would find no use for it and would toss it away. Finally, Zendikari goblins would likely eat it.

Flavor Text: Oh no... She's right behind me, isn't she? You guys should've warned me before I said the thing...

Question: Like angels avatars a beings mana and the believes and philosophies of said mana, but on a whole other level. Angels are to avatars what a mage is to a planswalker.

Flavor Text: As Mirror Entity already have flavor text, I assume you refer to the Mirror Entity avatar card from Vanguard*
"Never pick a fight with someone who commands dragon ooze spider ninjas!"

Question: Why does Archon of Redemption only heal you when a flying creature is summoned?

(I didn't realize that it was only cards that didn't already have flavor text. I didn't actually read the rules before now and just inferred them from the current responses.)

Question: Well, first of all, Emeria seems to refer to the Kor God, the region, and Emrakul, so all of those seem to have flying in common, so yeah.
Flavor Text: "The divine chariot is light enough that a bird could pull it."

I'm all for dead horse beating :P

Question: Because it's too slippery for the normally very careful and planned blue mages to target with its spells. He's a wrestler, those guys resist blue magic usually. Or, the piercings in his chin are the protection generators. Take your pick :P
Flavor Text: "One shot, one kill. Hopefully."

New theme: Eldrazi. Next new theme will be Eldritch moon, once all the cards are spoiled.
Question: Who built the Eldrazi Monument? Do you think it was a legitimate worship, or a warning to future Zendikari?
Flavor Text: Deceiver of Form
(For this theme, I predict the first part will be hard to find, while the second will be very easy to find.)
