  1. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Feared Scarecrow -Common
    B
    Creature -Horror
    T: Target flying creature cannot attack you this turn.
    1/1

    Relentless Foe -Uncommon/Rare
    3G
    Creature -Hunter
    During your upkeep, you may pay 2G or RR. If you do, Relentless Foe deals 2 damage to each player it has damaged previously.
    3/3

    Pine Soothsayer -Uncommon
    1G
    Creature -Elf
    1: Destroy target land enchantment.
    1G,T: Destroy target Creature enchantment.
    GGG: Destroy target enchantment.
    1/1

    Forest Elder -Common
    2G
    Creature -Druid
    2G: Regenerate target creature
    1/2


    Essence Weaver -Uncommon
    1G
    Creature -Druid
    Essence Weaver comes into play with a soul counter on it.
    When a creature leaves play, you may pay G. If you do, put a soul counter on Essence Weaver.
    Tap: Add X green mana to your mana pool, where X is the number of soul counters on Essence Weaver.
    1/1


    Town Exorcist -Common/Uncommon
    1WW
    Creature -Cleric
    All creatures with Holy counter on them are white instead of their normal color.
    W: Destroy all creature enchantments on target creature, then put a Holy Counter on it.
    1/2
  2. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Elvish Sniper GG
    Creature - Elf
    T : Target player reveals his or her hand and discards any creature cards with a toughness of 1.
    1/1
  3. NeuroDeus Doctor Wundindlinyg

    Deep Sea Merfolk - Uncommon
    2UU
    Creature - Merfolk
    3/2
    1: Deep Sea Merfolk becomes a 1/4 creature until end of turn.
    1: Deep Sea Merfolk becomes black until end of turn.

    Chanting Mermaid - Uncommon
    U
    Creature - Merfolk
    0/1
    2UU,T: Tap target creature.

    Trombolk - Rare
    2GG
    Creature - Troll
    4/2
    G: Trombolk gains trample until end of turn.
    2GG: Put a 1/1 red token into play. That token counts as a Troll.
    A distant cousin of the Brikabrak, Trombolk roam the mountains but seed and harvest fields - Blarf

    I am getting a bit to affectionate to the Trolls since I invented the Brikabrak, the Trombolk and Blarf together with his attendent... Maybe I can also Invent a story about trolls some time and also maybe can be inserted as a sub-plot in Subterfuge...
  4. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    That new Troll (I can't get his name right) really should regenerate in some way. Maybe 'Sacrifice a Troll: Regenerate ~'?

    The Chanting Mermaid is vastly underpowered. You drop down a 0/1 creature that has absolutely no use except as an INCREDIBLY expensive tapper. All of the Invasion tappers are blatantly cooler than this. She needs at least to be 1/1, and/or have another (cheaper) ability.
  5. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Serpent Familiar (Open to name changes...) (Rare/Cut assuming we don't want opposing-color gold cards...)
    2GU
    1/1
    When you draw a card, put a +1/+1 counter on Serpent Familiar.

    Compassionate Giant(Rare)
    2WW
    6/6
    When a creature leaves play, remove Compassionate Giant from the game.
    He does what no man can - until he experiences what he does.

    I agree about Chanting Mermaid. See Master Decoy/Benalish Trapper.

    Elvish Sniper seems a little blackish...

    Relentless Foe: Since this set is supposedly supporting multicolor a little bit, change its upkeep ability to 2R.

    Feared Scarecrow isn't very fearsome. It's OK, but kind of bland. Basically a vanilla 1/1 anyway.

    Pine Soothsayer looks really good (much better than that cruddy Savaen Elves).

    Forest Elder is good too, but isn't much more than that. Like Feared Scarecrow, good for the common slot at best.

    Essence Cycler: Essence Weaver maybe? Looks good. You might want to add a Soul Net effect for the Mark counters instead, like so:

    Essence Weaver
    1G
    Essence Weaver comes into play with a soul counter on it.
    When a creature leaves play, you may pay G. If you do, put a soul counter on Essence Weaver.
    Tap: Add X green mana to your mana pool, where X is the number of soul counters on Essence Weaver.

    This does make the counter thing more expensive, but also more flexible.

    Town Exorcist is good.

    I agree with Landkiller about Soul Gamble. However, the players have to reveal the cards to check the color fairly.

    I don't get Aquamarine Force... who would sac a 6/3 to gain 3 life, then discard their hand as well as the top 3 cards of their library (given the timing of its effects)? It should be 3/6 at least, but still...

    Spilled Blood is sick in multiples... maybe heavier red requirement (to start with)?

    Redirected Delusions should be an enchantment reading "You control enchanted creature if it has another enchantment on it." Maybe it could be UU, but it shouldn't just be a Sorcery effect, because then it's lost forever (to the other person... hehehe)

    Truth Teller and Concentration are fine.

    Halt sucks. Sorry. You can't even target non-hasting creatures! Maybe take that part out and make it 1W...

    Plundering Vandal is good.

    Jailbreak is interesting... in some decks it might be incredibly useful, but in general it's pretty specialized.

    Energy Absorber: This is a weird card. It's helpful and yet it's harmful... hmm... After much consideration, I am 100% certain that I'm not sure what I think of it. :)

    Instant Resurrection: Try to find a different name... I'm sorry, but I can't think of one.

    One might think that Verdant Threat would be overpowered (killing a land, which is present in green for 3 mana, and giving you a 5/3, which can't cost much less than 4 mana), but in fact, it's not, and it's perfectly playable too.

    Wave of Spirits: If you can keep choosing new players, this would be great in multiplayer games...

    Reset: Do cut the cantrip.
  6. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Elvish Sniper
    I like it. It does seem a tad blackish, but it revolves around creatures, which is greens thing.

    Deep Sea Merfolk
    Looks good to me!

    Chanting Mermaid
    I agree. Perhaps make it "Tap target creature, that creature is dealt 1 damage"

    Trombolk
    Looks pretty solid to me. That sounds good to me about the storyline NeuroDeus.

    Serpent Familiar
    Looks fine to me, havent heard word about cutting opposed colors.

    Compassionate Giant
    Ok.

    Relentless Foe
    I'll change it to 2G or RR.

    Essence Cycler
    I agree with Thallid's version, and Essence Weaver is fine...

    Spilled Blood
    1RR should be ok.

    Redirected Delusions
    Ok, and 1UU should still be the cost...

    Halt
    "Target creature deals no combat damage this turn. If that creature has Haste, you may gain XX life, where X is that creatures casting cost"
    ...and at 2W.

    Instant Resurrection
    Fresh Rising;)

    Reset
    Cutting the cantrip...
  7. NeuroDeus Doctor Wundindlinyg

    Cannot I propose a crappy uncommon that no-one would ever play? I am talking about the Mermaid card :)
  8. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Neuro, of course you can. But I think every card should be playable in some deck. And Chanting Mermaid...at that cost, is really terrible. So, how about

    Chanting Mermaid 2U
    Creature - Merfolk
    UU, Tap an untapped Merfolk you control : Tap target creature.
    0/1

    Destiny Smiles 3WW
    Sorcery
    Each player may discard any number of cards, then draw an equal number of cards. Each player gains life equal to the converted mana cost of each card he or she discards.


    Destiny Laughs 3BB
    Sorcery
    Each opponent discards his or her hand and draws an equal number of cards. Then look at each players' hand, and choose a card. The chosen cards are discarded.

    The Destiny cards would be okay for multiplayer.
  9. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    I think we might as well make a Destiny cycle of cards (but please, please no Destiny's Child creature).

    The rest:

    Destiny Stares 3UU
    Sorcery
    Each player may discard any number of cards, then draw an equal number of cards. Then, proceeding in turn order, each player may tap a number of target permanents*equal to the greatest converted mana cost among the cards discarded in this way.

    Destiny Beckons 3GG
    Sorcery
    Each player may discard any number of cards, then draw an equal number of cards. Then, proceeding in turn order, each player may put a +X/+X counter on any target creature*, where X is the greatest converted mana cost among the cards that player discarded.

    Destiny Seethes (Name changed due to concerns based on content -TICM)
    3RR
    Sorcery
    Each player may discard any number of cards, then draw an equal number of cards. Then, proceeding in turn order, each player may deal X damage to target creature or player*, where X is the greatest converted mana cost among the cards discarded.

    BTW, Destiny Laughs should be "each player," not "each opponent." Also, when they are choosing what to discard, they should choose "in turn order."

    * How should we word this so that the player whose "turn" it is to do the effect gets to choose the target, instead of the player who played the spell choosing all of them?
  10. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    I think Landkiller's version of chanting merfolk is ok, but still bad. It should be a 0/3, then it would be playable.

    Still thinking about those crazy destiny cards...
  11. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    The Destiny cards seem cool, I like them. Ill leave the wording to a more competent person:)

    Balanced Risks -Uncommon/Rare

  12. NeuroDeus Doctor Wundindlinyg

    Since nobody wants crap or overpowered cards I redesigned Chanting Mermaid

    Chanting Mermaid
    1U
    Creature - Merfolk
    UU,T: Tap target creature. If that creature is a Merfolk or has Islandwalk remove that creature from the game.
    0/2
  13. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    There we go! A much cooler card that has a cool ability too.

    Imperial Executioner
    3GB
    Creature - Knight; 3/4
    Attacking does not cause Imperial Executioner to tap.
    Imperial Executioner does not untap during your untap step unless you pay 1 for each Greed counter on it. Spend only green mana in this way.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, you may pay two life to remove a Greed counter from Imperial Executioner.
    X, Tap: Destroy target creature, where X is the number of Greed counters on Imperial Executioner. Spend only black mana in this way. Put a Greed counter on Imperial Executioner.

    Mmmm, lots of text.
  14. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Vitality Bounds is evil in Bargain. It totally shuts down burn/creature damage. The problem is that there really is no way to fix that.

    (An earlier comment related to Destiny Seethes was deleted as irrelevant and possibly obscene -TICM)
  15. NeuroDeus Doctor Wundindlinyg

    Perfect Soldier
    2RW
    Creature - Soldier
    2/2
    First Strike.

    Emmei Swordmaster

    First Strike.
    0: Target creature gains first strike until end of turn. Play this ability only once each turn.
    0: Target creature gains +0/+1 until end of turn. Play this ability only once each turn.

    more more more cards...
  16. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Of course, if Perfect Soldier were perfect, then it would have free activation costs on everything and you could win the game and it would clean your dishes and save the world and...

    My point is, call it "Veteran Soldier." :p

    Destiny ***** ** *** ***: How about "Destiny Seethes"?

    Emmei Sandstorm
    UUR
    Sorcery
    Return all creatures with toughness 2 or less to owner's hand.

    (some legend guy)
    1WWBB
    Legend
    2/3
    When a creature would deal damage to ~this card~, instead deal that damage to that creature.
  17. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Spiderman: If you're going to go back and change it, at least change them to the same thing.

    (This comment refers to the formerly offensive name of the card now called "Destiny Seethes;" the posts containing its original name were edited to obscure this content by Spiderman. -TICM)
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Hey, if you didn't think using ASCII characters to "disguise" the word is somehow okay, I wouldn't have to do it. :rolleyes:
  19. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Supreme Idol -Rare
    2UUU
    Enchant Creature
    Enchanted creature now counts as a legend.

    During your upkeep, pay enchanted creature's casting cost or sacrifice it

    Lost Nostalgia
    RR
    Instant
    As an addtional cost to play this, discard a land that can produce black mana.
    Look at target players hand, that player discards all land cards.
  20. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    FoR: I suggest you change the name of Fascism to something like "Supreme Idol" or "Conqueror's Pride" or something. A card called Fascism suggests damage to other creatures and so forth, and would probably be red.

    Spiderman: Fine.
