New Set - Seeking Card Ideas, or any help!

Discussion in 'Home Made Cards' started by Landkiller, Oct 20, 2000.

  1. Landkiller CPA Menace

    I have recently posted this, minus all asides, on Mtgnews, and since I'm new to this site, I'll post it here too. Two groups of people checking it out beats one. Oh, and if anyone else wants to do work on it they can use the whole thing to load into Apprentice or whatever. I'm not a technical person.

    brief aside :: worry not, those who read anything else i've posted on this site tonight. This one at least won't be relentlessly insane. The rest were for fun!

    I am making a new set, and I am looking for cards. So far I have a lot of blue and black, although I can still accept blue and black cards as long as they are balanced and original. Although retakes on old concepts are great too. Anyway the set uses
    no new mechanics, but has the "Any player can play this ability", the Comes into play as an instant, the uncounterable ability, and the allied color mana abilities on mono colored cards. Generally, stay away from 'cycling' or 'echo' as a major theme, and write the whole ability out if you want to use it. The set title is still open. I was working with The Fallen, because I'm trying to create a modern version of the Dark in a way. Modern as in playable.

    Total aside :: Does anyone think that part of the flavor of an older card had to do with the way it was written? Hurricane from revised makes flying creatures 'suffer' X damage. Control Magic from revised says 30 lines of text while the Oracle wording is " Gain control of enchanted creature."
    Some more obscure older cards were very difficult to understand, and hard to use. Anyway...

    Shadows is a cool name for the set too. Anyway, there is a cycle of color shifting legends, a cycle of one mana spells that are more powerful than the three for ones but have a major drawback. There is a cycle of allied protection knights like Renegade Knight below. The 'themes' of the colors so far, and deckstyles as I see it.

    Black : Zombies, 'Necro' style, and weenie. Discard is missing, and suicide... hmm. Black needs midsize creatures and small creatures. A few badass creatures wouldn't hurt.

    Blue : Counterspells, and Draw cards. I need soft lock elements, creatures, bounce, and color shifters.

    Red : Everything is needed. Sligh style speed cards, land destruction, burn, artifact hate, and dragons. Oh if anyone makes a card that is a random game, like Mages' Contest, Mana Clash, Puppet's Verdict, etc. Power to You!!

    Green : Everything is needed. Mana dudes, Creature uppers, Enchantment removal, big fatty dudes and strange green combo stuff.

    White : Everything is needed. Spot removal, mass removal, manic lifegain, annoying damage prevention, competent creatures, and strange white enchantment stuff.

    Artifacts : I haven't made an artifact yet. Anything and Everything fits here.

    Lands : I want to make new basic lands. And I will design a bunch of lands, but feel free to submit any, especially cool legendary lands. Non-mana lands will be considered, and appreciated.

    Legends : I have 2-4 legends per color as a template for how many I need. Perhaps a whole cycle of 6 legendary lands, including 1 for artifact or multicolor.

    Gold : Whoa. There will be gold. Invasion style allied colors, and opposing color stuff too. Tri, Quad, or throw all five in. Just make sure it's playable in a decent deck. Go crazy.

    Send ideas here or to lberghaus@hotmail.com. I will reply to any messages.

    small stuff is easier to rip apart. on the other hand, to get rid of something big, you'll have to be prepared to lose a lot of life. and it deals with the "playably undercosted" (read "broken") cards of UZ block quite effectively.

    Here are a few more of my evil little creations:

    T'neow 4RR
    summon Wizard legend
    X1R, T: deals X damage to target creature or player.
    XRRRR, T, pay X life, Sacrifice T'neow: Destroy X target lands.

    Anyone spot the most broken card?





    <space>







    Yes, Fool's Bargain. FB turn 1 and use the included ritual and find another FB. Continue until you are at 8 life with 9 mana in pool. Then look through deck until you find something to do with only 9 black mana. On turn 1, with only a black mana and an FB required. So therefore the mana cost is raised to BB. This makes recursively playing it "A really bad way to get mana!"
