    Ninja Warrior may be played as an instant.
    Haste
    Assassins cannot be blocked by walls.
    3/3

    Samurai Lord 2WU
    Creature - Lord - Rare
    Untap up to three creatures you control when Samurai Lord comes into play. Each creature you control gains first strike while Samurai Lord is untapped.
    3/4

  2. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    These cards look OK, but each of them is a little too powerful... The fact that they're gold cards does not let you reduce the cost by one mana from what it should be. For example, that W/G Rogue Samurai or whatever is a 2WG for 4/4 with two good abilities... this kind of thing doesn't happen much... The assassin is also greatly better than that B/U assassin from Invasion (which did really suck, but still...)
  3. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Should each of the creatures in my last post cost 1 more colorless?
  4. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Ninja Master
    3UB, lose the Kill-Land thing.

    Ninja Warrior
    It looks ok. Really good, but ok.

    Samurai Lord
    2/3.

    Rogue Samurai
    3WG.
    Also, reword it to 'Whenever a spell or ability would cause ~this~ to be placed in the graveyard, you may return it to play with a -1-1 counter on it"
    ...or something like that.

    Bandit Chieftain
    2/2 or 3GR. I suggest 2/2.

    Lead by Example
    I really like this card! I dont think the life loss is needed though.

    Also, cards I think should have a name changed:
    Ninja Master
    Ninja Warrior
    Samurai Lord
    Rogue Samurai

    Just because these names are based on things that are in Earth culture, and dont we want to get away from that? I dunno...

    [insert fantasy adjective here] Steed
    I think this should be 1RR, theres no need to make this gold.

    [insert fantasy adjective here] Thunderbolt
    I love this card, great idea!

    [insert fantasy adjective here] Fly Trap
    This should be 1GG, with an activation cost of GG.

    [insert fantasy adjective here] Willow
    I think this card would be alot better mono-green, but it makes sense to have it gold I suppose. Its ok.

  9. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Broken Circle
    This is a very intruiging card...I like it.

    Broken Contract
    1W, and this will need to be re-worded.

    Uncertain Fate
    This should be at R, 1R at the most...
    Maybe this should be white?

    Uncertain Future
    I think a good spell to compare this too is Hesitation, from Stronghold. I think its balanced.

    Guerilla Warfare
    Unless you want to make the effect bigger when a creature card is on top of your library, this should cost G.

    Constant Warfare
    I like this, very hectic...maybe cost 1BB?

    Inept Defense
    Should reword to "Whenever an unblocked creature deals damage to a creature, the creatures controller may deal 2 damage to target creature or player."
    Is that what it should do? Also, if it effects all players, the cc is fine. If your the only one who can deal 2 damg, it should cost 2RR.

    Mantis Machinist

    Here's a couple of ideas. They might be bad.

    Fujita.....(don't really know how to spell it)
    1GG
    Creature-Elemental
    2/1
    When Fujita comes into play destroy target creature with a
    converted mana cost equal to the number of Forest you control.

    Limited, Green creature removal.........


    Greater Fujita
    3GGG
    Creature-Legend
    4/3
    Greater Fujita counts as an Elemental.
    When_this_comes into play destroy each creature with a
    converted mana cost equal to the number of Forest you
    control.
    "Only a select few live to tell about it."_the Village Elder


    Brass Ring
    Artifact
    1
    Choose one:
    Tap: add B to your mana pool and lose 1 life.
    Tap: add U to your mana pool. Opponent may draw a card.
    Tap: add G to your mana pool and opponet puts a 1/1 token creature into play.
    Tap: add R to your mana pool and take 1 point of damage.
    Tap: add W to your mana pool and target opponent gains 1 life.
    "Everything has a price."_ Scholar of the Age's.


    Like I said they might not be any good but I've always wanted a Green assassin and another Mox type of Artifact.
  15. Jake74 King of Worthless Trivia

    i think most of these cards are great, but is there a master list somewhere so you don't have to look through all the posts?
  16. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Occasionally someone puts together a list of the cards made at the time, but that hasn't happened for a while.
    However, if you have any ideas, don't think that we'll just forget them because we have so many other cards. All (well, almost all) submissions from any are welcome and appreciated.

    *The one thing that we wouldn't appreciate very much are cards like 1 mana for a 1000/1000 creature.

    The point is to make cards that are balanced and yet interesting. Anyone could help with this.
  17. Jake74 King of Worthless Trivia

    I've been thinking about vampires...

    Master Vampire (2BB)
    Creature - Vampire [Rare]
    ~this~ can only be blocked by black and/or artifact creatures.
    When ~this~ comes in to play, sacrifice up to 3 creatures. ~this~ has power equal to the combined power of those creatures and toughness equal to the combines toughness of those creatures.
    */*

    Vampire Minion (1BB)
    Creature - Vampire [?Common?]
    BB,T: Target creature gets a -1/-1 counter, put a +1/+1 counter on ~this~.
    BB: Remove a +1/+1 counter, regenerate ~this~.
    1/1

    I've got one more, but it needs to be reworded first....
    ..(Time Passes)
    Here it is :)

    Greater Vampire (2BB)
    Creature - Vampire [Uncommon]
    X: Remove target creature with power X from the game under ~this~ and place 2 blood counters on ~this~. ~this~ gains +x/+y where y is that creature's toughness.
    During your upkeep, remove a blood counter. If there are no blood counters on ~this~, return the creature under it to the game under its owner's control. It is a creature - vampire in addition to any other type and gains this ability.
    This ability can not be used if there are any blood counters on ~this~.
    2/2
    (Can anyone help the wording on this, but keep the same idea?)
  18. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    ARG! I spent about two hours posting my comments on all these cards, and then they got deleted! Man...
    Oh well, best to start anew.

    Request
    What does this card do? I cant figure it out....

    Gluttonous Wurm
    This card should be mono-black methinks...your thoughts?
    On the poison thing, reword to 'During your upkeep, put a edible counter permanent in play that cannot produce poison counters.

    Tides of Battle
    2WU, maybe even 1WU.

    Ikatai Efreet
    4BR.

    Kalusem Djinn
    2WUU, and remove the tap creature thing on the last option.

    Fire Elementalist
    An excellent card, but just give it protection from red.

    Water Elementalist
    A VERY balanced card, but land-creature stuff is usually green...Oh well.

    Air Elementalist
    UU

    Earth Elementalist
    Lands gotta equal 1/1's

    Spiritualist
    Good.
  19. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    [insert fantasy adjective here] Ritual
    Theres potential, but we gotta steer away from a cycle. Heres my take:

    Machinist Thaumaturgy -Uncommon
    R (Maybe RR?)
    Instant
    As an additional cost to Machinist Thaumaturgy, sacrifice an artifact.
    Add 6 mana to your mana pool. This mana can only be spent for casting artifacts and activating abilties of artifacts

    What do you think Thallid?

    Jeeble Jobble
    Im not good at Nonsense names either....this should be a 2/2 with flying though.

    Cradlewood Tortoise
    2/2. Awesome, interesting ability. Maybe make the activation cost G?

    Guilty Conscience
    Can cost W, and should be reworded to "Whenever a creature that enchanted creature has damaged this turn goes to the graveyard, remove enchanted creature from the game."
  20. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Fujita
    I like it, but I think we should tack on a restriction. Like so:

    Fujita -Uncommon
    1GG
    Creature-Elemental
    2/2
    When Fujita comes into play destroy target creature with a
    converted mana cost equal to the number of Forest you control. If you dont, sacrifice Fujita.
    "There's a storm brewing."_the Village Elder

    So now you *Have* to do it to a creature. To go with the restriction, which is pretty big, I made it a 2/2.

    Greater Fujita
    I have no idea what to make of this card.

    Brass Ring
    I dont think this a good idea, I dont think we should include it.
