    The cards reads.....all creatures in it's OWNERS graveyard. Sorry if I caused a hastle, I was just trying to get my point across and I thought these cards were viable...and so what if Thunderspirit was broken...people still use it, and it wasn't banned so why not use my card?
  2. XDanish Sadistic Wizard

    Sengir Angel-4BW
    Creature- Vampire Angel Legend
    4/4
    Attacking Doesn't cause Sengir Angel to Tap.
    Put a +1/+1 counter on Sengir Angel for each creature put to the graveyard the same turn Sengir Angel damaged it.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Warrior Geddon, The Renewer-3WW
    Creature-Spellshaper Legend
    3/3
    3W,Tap: Discard two cards from your hand, destroy all lands.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Xterra, Keeper of the Crypt-3RR
    Creature-Minion
    */*
    Xterra, Keeper of the Crypt has power and toughness equal to the number of lands in all graveyards.
    When Xterra, Keeper of the Crypt comes into play sacrifice all but 3 lands you control.

    I'm sure XDanish was looking for some constructive criticism, Istanbul, just as I know you've been looking at WAY too many broken cards in this thread here. I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it.

    I made the same mistake Istanbul did when I first saw Nightstalker, but since it only counts it's controller's graveyard for the P/T I think it might be OK. I'd raise the CC of the White flyer to WW though, and it'd still be a very strong card. He's right about the dragon and the Helix too, though I disagree on the comment he made about how the flying ability is out of flavor for Red.

    It is, but not when you're talking about dragons! ;)

    I'm not sure I agree with all his reasoning (using Hill Giant for a model?), but he does make several valid points. Personally, I'd cost him the same as the Avatar (6RR) and make him tap to use his special ability. I'd also have the Helix lose it's own untargetability, and lower the CC to 4, and then I'd say it'd work too.

    The newer cards you submitted here aren't too bad. I like the first 2, though I liked Warrior Geddon's original name better ;). I think you should take away the Crypt Keeper's CIP ability though. I think that makes it WAY TOO TOUGH!

    IMHO. :D
  4. XDanish Sadistic Wizard

    I thank you for your positive feeback....what do you mean by the Keeper's CIP ability? Sorry, I'm new to magic, been playing for 6 months and am not really clear about that. I was just trying to make some cool cards that people would use in the set. Thanks anyways!!
  5. Cateran Overlord New Member

    CIP means "Comes Into Play", so in this case the sacrificing all but 3 lands you control.
  6. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    I don't have a big problem with Lightning Spirit's mana cost, but I'd go with WW just because I think that blue should get the 1U 2/1 fliers. I don't like the name, though, for a white card.

    Keeping in mind that Shivan Dragon is 4RR with an ability not nearly as good as this one, and is 5/5; and that Lava Axe is a sorcery (costing 4R) that can only target players, and that I like to change the names of cards just cuz... ;)

    If you want the ability to cost 4R, then add "discard a card" to the cost and call it a dragon spellshaper.

    Revenant costs 4B, with flying. I'm going to go along with that, even though I don't think first strike is worth quite as much mana as flying.

    Don't even think about that Power Helix thingie.

    Xterra is good, but should be a guardian or something, since crypts and minions are normally black. It should also be a Legend if you want to give it a name and a title.

    I suggest:
  7. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    Ok..I am open for critisim on this one. But I liked the Idea after thinking about it.

    Sengire Vampire Dragon
    BBB4
    Summon Dragon
    2/2
    BBB:First Strike
    Can only block creatures with flying.
    When Sengire Vampire Dragon successfully destroys a creature, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

    "The undead dragon was weak and frail summoned from the pits of hell, But as it would eat it would grow to be a horrifying monstrisity"
    - Urza to his new pupils.
  8. Mikeymike Captain Hiatus

    Gaea's Stupidity
    2GGG
    Enchantment
    GGG: Target creature you control can't be the target of spells or abilities.
    GG: Target creature you do not control can't be the target of spells or abilities.

    Death Wave
    4RRRR
    Sorcery
    Deals X damage divided however you choose where X equals the amount of lands all Opponents control.


    Istanbul--I like the new Crovax, he works perfectly with the his abilities from the novel, and he's not especially overpowered (he's a Legend, give it to him)
  9. seveninchcowboy New Member

    Crovax, Evincar of Rath 3BBB
    Creature - Vampire Legend
    BB(B): Target creature gets -0/-1 until end of turn, Crovax gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
    B: Crovax gains flying until end of turn.
    4/4 (maybe 4/3 or 3/3)
    i don't think it's broken especially if it went with the BBB activation cost instead of just 2

    Nature's Prayer
    0
    Enchantment
    Each ability can only be used twice a turn.

    U: Target creature gains flying until end of turn.
    G: Target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

    There's already a Backfire, in Legends.

    Nature's Prayer is insanely, glaringly, flat-out, in-your-face BAH-ROKEN. If this thing was printed, I'd be storming WotC's doors the moment it was released into the public until they banned it.
  12. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    With Natures Prayer..everything can be a Morphling..YES!
  13. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    I think the two of you are right. I'll change it to

    Nature's Prayer
    0
    Enchantment
    Upkeep: 2
    Only 2 of these abilities can be used a turn.
    1: same
    B: same
    U: same
    G: same
    R: same
    W: same
  14. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    I guess Backfire could be changed to Thoughtlash.
  15. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    I guess Backfire could be changed to Thoughtlash.
  16. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    I believe there is also already a thoughtlash..I believe its a blue card.

    Sorry
  17. Cateran Overlord New Member

    Yes, there is a Thoughtlash. Your creatures aren't quite Morphlings, in fact they'd be BETTER if not for the lack of the untargetable thing is lacking. Maybe give it the Sliver Queen's CC and allow everyone to use it (CHAOS!)
  18. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Make it CUMULATIVE Upkeep: 1 and we're there. An upkeep of 2 is nothing when you have that kind of flexibility.
  19. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    How about changing Nature's Prayer then.

    Nature's Prayer
    1
    Instant
    Choose one.
    Target white creature gets +0/+2 until end of turn.
    Target red creature gets +2/+0 until end of turn.
    Target blue creature gains flying until end of turn.
    Target green creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
    Target black creature cannot be blocked except by artifact and black creatures until end of turn.
    Prevent 1 damage to any creature or player.

    Does anybody have a better name for Backfire/Thoughtlash?
  20. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    NOW Nature's Prayer is balanced.

    Backfire/Thoughtlash = Psychic Backlash?
