    Crossroads

    Artifact Land

    1: Crossroads becomes a basic land type of your choice until end of turn and may tap for mana as that land type. The basic land types are Plains, Forest, Island, Mountain, Swamp. This ability may be played more than once per turn, the effects stack.

    Seems too broken with those spells that count basic land types (those dinosaurs come to mind, probably others).
  3. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

    How about now?
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Doesn't help. I'm talking about spells like

    Stratadon
    {10}
    Artifact Creature
    5/5
    ~this~ costs {1} less to play for each basic land type among lands you control.
    Trample

    or

    Coalition Victory
    {3}{W}{U}{B}{R}{G}
    Sorcery
    You win the game if you control a land of each basic land type and a creature of each color.

    Since Crossroads counts as each basic land type, you just need 2 of them to put out the Stratodon for free or 1 to win with Coalition Victory (assuming you have a creature of each color too, which probably shouldn't be too hard).
  5. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Actually, you can never put out the Stratadon for free. There are only 5 basic land types.

    But yeah, this would be the ultimate domain card. Turn 2 Tribal Flames for 5, Turn 2 Worldly Counsel for 5, Strength of Unity always gives +5/+5, etc. Bah-roken.

    Oops, sorry about the Stratodon. It just came to mind as an example of a card that would be immensely helped by chocobo_cid's card.
  7. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

    That was the idea. :D

    I like the idea of "basic land type" as a mechanic, what can I say?

    NOTE: Again revised.
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I think it's okay now, although I'm not sure if the activation cost should be 2 instead of 1. I mean, it's a pretty good "Brass City" so I don't know if it's too cheap or not. It's too close to call for me :)
  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Seems like it would break domain cards...
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Not sure how now since it's been revised... it can only be one basic land type at a time, the effects don't accumulate (at least how I'm reading it).
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Oh, I missed the edit and posted on this way after I wanted to...

    I retract that then...

    Not nearly as good now...
  12. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

  13. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Now I'm not so sure it's okay, with artifact mana (especially Mana Vault). Probably would have to play-test.
  14. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

    That helper text is pretty clunky. How should it be rewritten?
  15. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    No need for dummy text...
  16. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

    I know how you feel about the "dummy text," but apparently it was needed by Spiderman:

    "The effects don't accumulate (at least how I'm reading it.)"

    Apparently that text was needed.
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yeah, that part was unclear. The rest can probably go though - What the basic land types are and that it can be played more than once per turn.
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, that would probably be best...
  19. chocobo_cid Thyme Devourer

    Any good now, though?
  20. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    here was my answer to that:p
