@SynergyBuild: Alaborn Cavalier. Where the Portal Sets slipped through, a lot of their cards either didn't, or just had new art in the case of the reprint being more affordable... The card originated in Portal: Second Age. Damn, Australia is really awesome w/ ideas, but never reprinted them due to how poorly marketed WotC (Whatever the Oceanic Variant is...) was. They didn't even last long enough to reach Modern Frame Creation back in 2003...

That said, I'll be thinking for awhile... I wonder what to do about Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as a Double Tribe... I'll let that be my job. Thanks for the help BTW; though I don't get why one of my decks isn't editable...

Predator, Flagship - lazer cannons

Alaborn Cavalier, Alaborn Musketeer, Alaborn Zealot - Muskets and rifle's, Portal Three Kingdoms.

Orcish Cannoneers Well, it's a cannon, but it's close.

Trokin High Guard I think that's a gun.

So there are some. But yea, it's rare. My thoughts are this: Sure, you could always hire a mage to do your dirty work for you, but a mage is just one person. Plus, they're probably be expensive. If an army could manufacture firearms, they'd clearly do so. And if goblins are capable of figuring out how to make a cannon, then it doesn't make sense that guns are so rare in mtg lore.

Aurelia's Command Tapping down the enemy's creatures is a thing, you can see some cards here. I stopped before I even got 1/3rd of the way through that list but here are some examples.

Akroan Jailer
Akroan Mastiff
Alaborn Cavalier
Angelic Benediction
Avacynian Priest
Aysen Bureaucrats
Ballynock Trapper
Benalish Trapper
Blinding Beam
Blinding Mage

One thing I will say though is I like how for every other command there are multiple combinations that are all great together. Like Jarad is deathtouch and then the +1/+1 and trample. Niv MIzzix is Copy a spell and change target or change target and draw (so it even works against Abrupt Decay!). Aurelia's Command just seems lacking.

No data for this card yet.
