    The red song is sorta broken.
    It has no drawback!
    How about...
    RR: Deal 3 damage to all players.

    Just a thought! :)
  2. Duster Protection from Idiots

    I'm pretty sure that's what it says :)
    Yup, just double checked it :)

    And on second thought, most of the songs are kind of broken.

    Especially the white one, in a weenie deck you'd be unstoppable just tapping your creatures for life, it's crazy. Maybe I could limit them to doing it only once per turn and increase the effect a little? It seems the only two that aren't really broken are Blue and Red.

    Here are some legend cards. These are charactors from the Artifact Cycle series of books.

    Gatha, Tolarian Renegade 3U
    Summon-Legend
    1/2
    2UU T: Put a +2/+2 counter on target creature

    Jhoira, Tolarian Artificer 3U
    Summon-Legendary Artificer
    1/1
    X T: Search your library for an artifact card with a total casting cost no greater than X. Reveal that card and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library afterward.
    X T: Choose an artifact in your hand and put it into play, tapped X equals the casting cost of the artifact card.

    Davvol's Flying Disc 3
    Artifact
    You may choose not to untap Davvol's Flying Disc during your untap phase.
    T: Target creature gains flying and first strike as long as Davvol's Flying Disc remains tapped.

    Here's my legend card

    Fire Slinger 2RRR
    Summon-Legendary Cardflopper
    2/6
    Cannot be the target of spells or abilites.
    R T: Fire Slinger does 3 damage to target creature or player.
    XR T: Sacrifice Fire Slinger. Fire Slinger does X damage to target creature or player.
    I love this job

    Jhoira is a living Tinker. Tinker never should have been made; ergo, neither should Jhoira.
    Davvol's disc isn't TOO bad, but it needs to cost 3 to activate.
    And your personal card is WAY broken. You get a Lightning Bolt every turn? Uhhh...no.

    Rebirth
    W
    Instant
    Remove target Creature from the game. That creatures owner
    may search their library for a creature card, they must
    reveal that card to all player then put it into there hand.
    Shuffle that players library.

    Here is another Idea I came up with

    All for one and one for all
    BB2
    Enchantment

    B: Tap an untapped creature you control and discard a card.
    Target opponant discards a card at random.
  8. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Cap'n Caveman - Interesting idea, but there's already a 'Rebirth'. Sorry. :)
  9. Fire Slinger Vetern CPA Member Pyromananic

    Fire Slinger 2RRR
    Summon-Legendary Cardflopper
    2/5

    R T: Fire Slinger does 2 to target creature or player. put a -0/-1 counter on Fire Slinger.

    XR T: Sacrifice Fire Slinger. Fire Slinger does X damage to target creature or player.

    Istanbul,

    I forgot about that. Its a Green card, right?

    Anyway. How about this?

    Martyr
    W
    Instant
    Remove target Creature from the game. That creatures owner
    may search their library for a creature card, they must
    reveal that card to all player then put it into there hand.
    Shuffle that players library.

    I kind of thought the card would be interesting too, since
    you can use it offensively and defensively.

    Alternate Universe 2RR
    Enchantment

    Universe Tear 2BBB
    Sorcery
    Remove target permanent from the game and flip a coin.
    If you lose the flip, remove target permanent of opponents choice from the game.

    Captain Caveman, how about:

    Unwilling Martyr
    W
    Instant

    Remove target creature an opponent controls from the game.
    That creature's owner may search his or her library for a creature card and reveal it to all players, then that player may pay 3. If he or does, that player may put the creature card into play, otherwise that player puts it into his or her hand.
    "There's no room for flavor text on this card."

    ===
    The ability to use this type of effect on one's self has typically been a green one (and usually costs about 3-4 mana), so I applied it to opponents only.
    I wanted to put the creature into play, but that would have made the card very bad, so I gave a rhystic-ish option to it.
    The "owner" part is intentional... this opens possibilities for interesting combos and conforms more readily to what my concept of a "martyr" is (as in, a creature of yours being "held prisoner" sacrifices itself so that another may take its place in the fight).

    Let me know what you think.

    =======

    Sorry about the lack of recent progress on the CPA set, y'all... I waited for Prophecy, and I've been caught up in some other projects (including my personal web page, which sucks presently). I'll get back to work on it shortly.

    Thanks! and... Later!

    Interesting note about actual Martyr cards: All of them deal with redirecting/preventing damage in some way, not trading creatures from different zones:

    Martyrdom
    Martyr's Cry
    Martyr's Cause
    Martys of Korlis

    Sorry to interrupt :)
  14. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Well, I'm certainly open to suggestions for names... :)
  15. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    White ussualy centers its cards around Military and religious themes so here is a few sugestions for you Chaos..

    Sacraficial Cause
    Honorable Draft
    Dedication
    For the good of others
    The Chosen

    The names seem a little corney but I tried to fit it to what the card does. So if you think about the name actually going with the card it works.
  16. Captain Caveman New Member

    "......The "owner" part is intentional... this opens possibilities for interesting combos and conforms more readily to what my concept of a "martyr" is."

    CT,

    True. The way I wanted to use the card it could have
    been a Demonic Worldly Tutor. Your idea fits the card
    really well. ( Oh, your done. Ok, I Marytr that creature
    you just Treacheried.)

    The Rhystic part might still be to powerful. I fear
    letting someone put it into play even if it cost three
    life. That way you should have atleast your turn to
    find an answer or gain control. I think it should go
    into the players hand.

    "Unwilling Marytr".... I like that name. If everybody
    feels it is out of theme, suggestions are always welcome.

    I've always had this thought that mayhaps Magic should enter a plane of dragons. It's an old D&D concept I've been playing around with and it would allow for a fun expansion, all sorts of silly legends, and dragons for all colors, huzzah! Not to mention I'd like to bring back the gold card idea. Here's some thoughts on possible card types:

    Council of Justice
    3WW
    Enchant World
    2WW: Tap target dragon, any player may use this ability.
    "Anarchy holds no place in their society"

    Council of Knowledge
    3UU
    2BB: Draw a card, any player may use this ability.
    "In their society, gold and knowledge are of equal value"

    Council of War
    3RR
    2RR: Deal 4 damage to target creature or player, any player may use this ability.
    "Woe to those who provoke the wrath of the Council"

    Council of Internal Affairs
    3GG
    2GG: Name a creature in play. Search your library for a copy of that creature, and put it directly into play. Any player may use this ability.
    "Dragons do not spawn frequently, so they find other ways to keep things moving"

    The Dark Council
    3BB
    2BB: Destroy target creature, it cannot be regenerated. Any player may use this ability.
    "Few ever see their actions, fewer still survive"

    And of course, dragons, but not just big fatties, necessarilly...

    Pearl Whelp
    1WW
    2/2 Flying
    W: Pearl Whelp gains +0/+1 until end of turn. If you spend more than WWW in this way in one turn, destroy Pearl Whelp at end of turn. It cannot be regenerated.

    Lightning Whelp
    1BB
    2/2 Flying
    UU: Tap target creature. If you spend more than UUUU in this way in one turn, destroy Lightning Whelp at end of turn. It cannot be regenerated.

    Fire Whelp
    1RR
    2/2 Flying
    R: Fire Whelp gains +1/+0 until end of turn. If you spend more than RRR in this way in one turn, destroy Fire Whelp at end of turn. It cannot be regenerated.

    Poison Whelp
    1GG
    2/2 Flying
    GG: Target creature receives "Poison" until end of turn (if it taps, destroy it at the end of turn). If you spend more than GGGG in this way in one turn, destroy Poison Whelp at end of turn. It cannot be regenerated.

    Acid Whelp
    1BB
    2/2 Flying
    B: Target creature loses -1/-1 until end of turn. If you spend more than BBB in this way in one turn, destroy Acid Whelp at end of turn. It cannot be regenerated.

    Any comments, suggestions, additions?
  18. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    I think somewhere I read that Wotc will incorporate D&D with Magic cards..But then again..I may be mistaken..truthfully though that would be cool I think.
