triproberts12 on How to design white card ...

I don't honestly think it's that hard to make white card draw, if it could just beat out priorities no one cares about like Happily Ever After. Here's my solution, a white version of Syphon Mind based on the card Truce : [CARD NAME], 2WW, Sorcery, "Starting with you, each player may draw a card. Draw a card for each card drawn this way." 18 words. Doesn't step on blues' toes, since it's way underpowered relative to Concentrate or Trade Secrets . It feels very white-forward, being about generosity. Finally, a Touch of Brilliance with a punisher effect and two white pips isn't going to warp Limited color identity by encouraging players to splash white for card draw, but it could be the top end of a white or Boros aggro deck packed with 2 and 3-drops. Much like Crush Contraband , the effect is mediocre enough to print at uncommon for Limited play, but it becomes one of the best budget cards in mono-white EDH once it leaves the draft table.

Why are you running Touch of Brilliance when Divination is literally the same card, but one cheaper, also you could run Glimmer of Genius which is the same, but allows you to scry two at instant speed, Inspiration or Weave Fate is this, but instant, Hieroglyphic Illumination can alternately be cycled for B and is instant, and Comparative Analysis is also this, but instant, and goes down in cost if you've cast another spell. Why Touch of Brilliance, it doesn't even have a chair in it?
