Random Card Design #13: Chaos Entity   Leave a comment

Is this card too good?


Random Card Design #11: Wings of Eternity   2 comments

Don’t think this has been done before- would it be too powerful? Too vulnerable and weak? Not fast enough? Thoughts please!

Edit: It has since been pointed out to me that this should really be “Sacrifice Wings of Eternity”, rather than “Destroy Wings of Eternity.”

Random Card Design #9- Favour of the Blessed   Leave a comment

Random Card Design #8: No Show   Leave a comment

A cute little Unsummon variant here. I like this as a simple way to give blue some combat tricks that suit the colour. Not a constructed card, but one that I think would have it’s role in limited,¬†perhaps.

Random Card Design #7: Wipe from Existence   Leave a comment

Toying with black exile here- I’ve always liked that Black very rarely gets exile, but when it does- it is to signify cruelty. To not only kill you but wipe away all traces that you ever were and ever took breath. This is what this card tries to achieve. I like the idea of combining the effects of staple cards and trying to repackage them as a whole- and this feels like an unholy marriage of Surgical Extraction and O-Ring. There’s possibly a problem with the wording here, but after delving through the Gatherer I couldn’t find anything that does this, so this is my best shot at it. The card feels rare and should be- you don’t want too many of these running around in limited, after all. I don’t think that it feels Mythic enough to justify that slot, though.

Random Card Design #6: Circle of Life   Leave a comment

Some top-down design today. Not sure if there’s ever been a card similar to this printed trying to capture “life’s circle” or something, but this card aims to do that. It hopefully feels very green and feels full of ¬†flavour!
