    paying 5 mana to get down what’s essentially Liliana, Dreadhorde General’s passive, one turn earlier, without any of her loyalty abilities – since let’s be real, the lifegain on a 5-mana do-nothing enchantment wont matter enough vs aggro

    [[Words of wilding]] and [[ashnods alter]] gets you infinite colorless mana, infinite life, and infinite etb/ltb/dies triggers. If you have [[ayula, queen among bears]] out too, you can grow her to an infinite size and fight all the things.

    4 colors but if you play this with Locust God and a sacrifice outlet you can draw your whole deck. I like Phyrexian Altar so you can play a lot of what you draw with all that mana

    [[Words of wilding]] and [[ashnods alter]] gets you infinite colorless mana, infinite life, and infinite etb/ltb/dies triggers. If you have [[ayula, queen among bears]] out too, you can grow her to an infinite size and fight all the things.

    My headcanon was always that Spectres are like Nazgul, bound spirits on the backs of winged beasts created by some necromancer or evil force. Shades are beings of pure shadow and darkness and therefore feed on the dark power of black mana itself. Nightmares, as stated, are like black's version of illusions, terrible fears given physical form. And Horrors are beings so unspeakably ill-formed and maddening that they can't be called anything else.

    “But Potter seems to have a lot to say on the subject,” said Snape, pointing suddenly at the back of the room, his black eyes fixed on Harry. “Let us ask Potter how we would tell the difference between an Inferius and a ghost.”
    The whole class looked round at Harry, who hastily tried to recall what Dumbledore had told him the night that they had gone to visit Slughorn.
    “Er-well-ghosts are transparent—” he said.
    “Oh, very good,” interrupted Snape, his lip curling. “Yes, it is easy to see that nearly six years of magical education have not been wasted on you, Potter. Ghosts are transparent.”
    Pansy Parkinson let out a high-pitched giggle. Several other people were smirking.
    Harry took a deep breath and continued calmly, though his insides were boiling, “Yeah, ghosts are transparent, but Inferi are dead bodies, aren’t they? So they’d be solid—”
    “A five-year-old could have told us as much,” sneered Snape. “The Inferius is a corpse that has been reanimated by a Dark wizard’s spells. It is not alive, it is merely used like a puppet to do the wizard’s bidding. A ghost, as I trust that you are all aware by now, is the imprint of a departed soul left upon the earth … and of course, as Potter so wisely tells us, transparent.”
    “Well, what Harry said is the most useful if we’re trying to tell them apart!” said Ron. “When we come face to face with one down a dark alley we’re going to be having a shufti to see if it’s solid, aren’t we, we’re not going to be asking, ‘Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?’”
    There was a ripple of laughter, instantly quelled by the look Snape gave the class.
    “Another ten points from Gryffindor,” said Snape. “I would expect nothing more sophisticated from you, Ronald Weasley, the boy so solid he cannot Apparate half an inch across a room.”

    A classic reprint with classic art. Seems kind of like filler though, since there’s a better version in standard right now & it’s not really in demand.

    Not unhappy to see it, not happy either.

    It turns out Standard has a bunch of Elementals that have seen play at some point or another:

    [[Lightning Mare]]

    [[Living Twister]]

    [[Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar]]

    [[Runaway Steam-Kin]]

    [[Vine Mare]]

    [[Wildgrowth Walker]]

    Elemental Tribal probably isn't going to be good enough to make the grade as it currently stands, but with more support who knows what will happen.

    We would need to see like 5 modern playable elementals in this set in red and green for this to have a chance, I am not holding my breath on that. What is good about being red green is that you could theoretically get large and cheap threats in green and reach in red, but they aren't going to give us a modern playable deck in standard.

    Sphinxes always have extremely weird designs that may not be competitive, but definitely have insane potential. This meets that criteria a lot. Is also a lot easier than you think in Commander. Feels like a Commander that people laugh about before the game begins, but when it enters play, they focus it on sight.

    The wording for the triggered ability seems really bad to me. It first refers to "an opponent," followed by "you," followed by "that player." Obviously the card would be terrible if "that player" meant you, but why not say "that opponent" to make it incredibly obvious?

    Everyone's all excited about a wincon that's honestly nearly irrelevant (usually if I have six cards in hand after I play a six drop flyer, I'm winning the game anyway, except in EDH) but I'm more excited about the body and activated ability.

    Remove the "win the game" ability and this is a 4/5 flyer that can generate significant card advantage if it doesn't attack. It's a touch slow, but it's an interesting creature for control, acting as both a win condition and card advantage.

    I think this is the definition of a win-more card. You hit your opponent with a 6 mana flyer, reveal a diverse hand of spells, and then say "I guess I win". No shit you win, you're probably ahead on board with lots of mana and a fist full of resources. I'm always happy to see alternate win-con cards though, so I'm not upset or anything.

    Yeah, this is never happening in modern. If it is anywhere close to happening, its because your opponent kept a 7 land hand and then proceeded to draw another 10 lands in a row. It has no way to protect itself. Needs to tap to use its ability. Lands in your hand screw you so much. It costs 6 mana. Yeah, not happening.

    This isn’t actually as goofy as it seems, it wins on the spot if you can assemble isochron sceptre dramatic reversal, you draw your deck with the first ability, then equip something like sorcerers wand to kill all of your opponents with the second ability. Not top tier by any means, but not terrible.

  • KarnSilverArchon

    Sphinxes always have extremely weird designs that may not be competitive, but definitely have insane potential. This meets that criteria a lot. Is also a lot easier than you think in Commander. Feels like a Commander that people laugh about before the game begins, but when it enters play, they focus it on sight.

    The wording for the triggered ability seems really bad to me. It first refers to "an opponent," followed by "you," followed by "that player." Obviously the card would be terrible if "that player" meant you, but why not say "that opponent" to make it incredibly obvious?

    Everyone's all excited about a wincon that's honestly nearly irrelevant (usually if I have six cards in hand after I play a six drop flyer, I'm winning the game anyway, except in EDH) but I'm more excited about the body and activated ability.

    Remove the "win the game" ability and this is a 4/5 flyer that can generate significant card advantage if it doesn't attack. It's a touch slow, but it's an interesting creature for control, acting as both a win condition and card advantage.

    I think this is the definition of a win-more card. You hit your opponent with a 6 mana flyer, reveal a diverse hand of spells, and then say "I guess I win". No shit you win, you're probably ahead on board with lots of mana and a fist full of resources. I'm always happy to see alternate win-con cards though, so I'm not upset or anything.

    Yeah, this is never happening in modern. If it is anywhere close to happening, its because your opponent kept a 7 land hand and then proceeded to draw another 10 lands in a row. It has no way to protect itself. Needs to tap to use its ability. Lands in your hand screw you so much. It costs 6 mana. Yeah, not happening.

    Though I agree that Poison Mushrooms would be broken as heck.

    Goblin Spears just needs to tap as part of the activation cost.

    Also is that set symbol a dog? Excellent.

    Goblin Spears is unironically great design

    The poisonous mushrooms flavour text is great! I could see Wizards putting it on a real card.

    If you'd just flip the numbers on Poison Mushroom, it might actually be somewhat balanced

    The first one's pretty solid in terms of balance and flavour. Could use a little tightening up mechanically, but it seems fine.

    Now, to look at the second card which, based upon the first, should be of a similarly acceptable power level for a custom card that could fit in with modern design sensibilities.

    “They looked harmless until I ate them” love your flavor text attempt! Lol

    reads first card

    That's not a totally unreasonable card design, especially for 11-12 years old, what's OP talking about?

    reads second card

    Oh, nice reusable Colorless Lotus you've got there.

    My 12 year self opinion on these cards: Goblin spears looks spot on, good removal, good flavor, 9/10 would windmill slam. Poisonous mushrooms, costs 1 life for 3 mana, seems bad, why would I hurt myself? Pretty much unplayable.

    Let's see if I can modernize and streamline it.

    Goblin Spears,3,Artifact

    2, Tap: Flip a coin. If you win the toss, destroy target creature an opponent controls. If you lose the toss, destroy target creature you control.

    Edit: Maybe losing the toss makes you sacrifice your creature? IDK, destroying a target creature you control seems a bit of clunky design to me.

    I’m dying at “sacrifice 1 life” that wording is amazing

    We should have gotten poison mushrooms in modern horizons, that would be really fun in tron
