    I'd really appreciate any input anyone can give me on this set, because I intend to print it and run a small sealed league in my area with it. So if anyone has any suggestions, constructive criticism, or finds a card that isn't templated to WotC standards, please let me know. :)

    Set Mechanics

    Blink X: You may pay X to blink this card out (set it aside), or blink this card in (return it to play if it was set aside).

    Shift X: You may pay X instead of this card's mana cost to play it.

    Visage creature type: Creatures that have abilities dependant on your stats or permanents in play. Visages are projections of the player, like avatars.

    Rules of Blink

    • If a card is blinked out, it is set aside. All counters on it and enchantments on it go with it. Likewise, if it is a local enchantment, permanents it enchants blink out with it. Conversely, if these permanents blink in, the same rules apply.
    • A card that is blinked out can't be the target of spells or abilities, can't attack or block, and is unaffected by spells or abilities which occur in play.
    • Some cards which are blinked out may have abilities which can only be used while they are blinked out, but these abilities can be used.
    • Some cards affect cards which are blinked out.
    • Anything blinked out is essentially considered to be in a separate play area.
