Wizards "You Make the Card"
Posted on March 11, 2013, 6:22 a.m. by Arachnarchist
Wizards of the coast has announced that they are going to do a fourth "you make the card" feature. For those of you who haven't heard of this, three times in the past wizards has allowed the Magic community to create a card by voting on each aspect of it. The previous three cards created this way were Forgotten Ancient, Crucible of Worlds, and Vanish into Memory. All of the details can be found here:
I thought i should be an enchantment because we already have a creature, instant, and an artifact. thoughts?

What does the past matter its what the meta needs currently. weapons...Artifact creatures..maybe a copy creature in a graveyard clone or some good new vampires for aggro or zombies or even something for standard goblins. These are all pretty important types currently out classed in the meta.

I voted instant, because I have this great idea for a new instant. It will cost double blue and it'll read "counter target spell."

I went with land... I want to see something like:
T: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.
When ~ enters the battlefield you may play an additional land this turn. That land enters the battlefield tapped.
(I know this could be abused with 'flicker' effects, but if the additional land enters tapped, it should be mitigated.)
First thought was for a non-basic land of each basic land type that was essentially this:
If you play ~ for it's miracle cost, it is a colorless spell and does not count as playing a land this turn.
(This means it can be responded to and/or countered if played for it's Miracle cost, but could be a bit of ramp for any colour, so long as it's the first draw of a turn. However, I don't think they will be reusing Miracle so soon.)

@Ohthenoises - No, no, no, this isn't counterspell. I'm going to call it "Antispell," which makes it a completely new card.

Oops.... to clarify, I meant 5 different non-basic lands, one of each basic land type.... not 1 land with each of the 5 basic land types.

I agree with KrazyCaley. You could also take it a step further and add in some more text that reads "exile a blue card from you hand instead of paying the casting cost". I would be fine with either version.

That's just FoW lol. Either way it can't be printed while Snapcaster Mage is in standard so M14 maybe. They admitted he was a big mistake to print in an article by the guy who created him.

Voted land too (before reading other people's votes here) :-)

@ KrazyCaley: Hahaha you seem to love blue as much as I do I'm strongly fighting for a Counterspell in Modern Let's conquer the only format that is not blue dominated ;)Nevertheless, I voted for enchantment since I'd love to see something great like the named three cards on an enchantment.

I 2nd or 3rd the UU or alt cost counterspell although I do like the miracle cost lands idea too, you could abuse the hell out of those lands...

lands for the win!! ;-) and maybe...just maybe! if the land is right they will produce a set of lands not just one!!.....that would be cooooooooool...

@theemptyquiver - Yes! +1! Either that or a Mono Artifact.

Land and it will read:
UU Tap: Counter Target Spell
