Barter with Heliod


Absorb (When this spell is put onto the stack, any player may spend any amount of mana to increase X by that much.)

You gain twice X life.

For each player who paid into X, X permanents they control gain indestructible until the beginning of their next end step.

You guys just wanna make this a cycle and finish it off? This is an interesting mechanic idea.

Red, blue, and green are left.

Markos of the Band

Legendary Creature - Human Knight

Exalted, Banding, Flanking

When Makius of the Band attacks, all other attacking creatures you control with Exalted and Flanking gain Banding.


So I have a super old Flanking / Banding deck. Creatures with Flanking reduce their blocker's P/T by -1/-1. That means when I swing with a 3/3 Flanker and you block with a 3/3 creature, your creature is reduced down to 2/2.

With Banding, I can now force you to block my entire boardstate all at once, and I decide how your damage is divided up among the permanents I control. This effectively makes me demolish your ability to block me, because since Flanking is a cumulative effect, I can have each creature you control get -1/-1 for each creature I control with Flanking that you are blocking (Which is all of them, since they have Banding).

Suppose I have three creatures with Flanking and they attack in a Band. You must now block all three of them. Say you block with three creatures. Each one of those three creatures is blocking all three of my Flankers. This means that each of your three creatures gets -3/-3.

Effectively, I attack and if you block your guys die to zero toughness. Anyone who survives this immediate downgrade is now subjected to me choosing where your damage is applied.

It's a super complicated deck that is buried somewhere else. I'd have to go looking for it, but it was super fun and annoying to play with.

I'll be nice and not ask you to build a Legendary Banding creature because I recognize that Banding is absolutely hated within the MTG community (As is with Tibalt, whom I adore).

Instead, I'm going to say this: Make a new shiny version of Phelddagrif.

When Soulfood enters the battlefield, choose two creatures you control. Those creatures gain: "Soulbond (You may pair this creature with another unpaired creature when either enters the battlefield. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.)" and "As long as this creature is paired with another creature, both creatures have lifelink."

So the mechanics of this card are admittedly a bit clunky. You'd choose two creatures you control and they gain Soulbond: Lifelink. However, neither entered the battlefield, so I don't believe either would immediately get it.

However, the next creature you bring into play would be able to bond to one of those. The second creature you bring into play would be able to bond to the second one.

In this way, you'd end up with four creatures with lifelink, and four creatures that can bond with others.

So while the payoff isn't directly immediate, it is exponential. Perfect for token decks who see a large swath of creatures entering frequently.

For example, if you are on Garruk, Primal Hunter's third turn and you play Soulfood before you ult, you can have two of your newly made 6/6 Wurm tokens gain Lifelink when they bond to whomever you had chosen previously (Perhaps two of his 3/3 Beast tokens).

I've attempted to make a Soulbond deck in the past, but I've been unsuccessful with how the pairings should work.

So, let's make some more of those. Make a Shard Soulbond Legendary Creature.

  • Create a vehicle from Mad Max

Iron-Wrought Scraphauler

Artifact - Vehicle


When Iron-Wrought Scraphauler attacks you may pay . If you do, target creature must block it if able.

Crew 6


Really? Okay. Let's see what the next challenge is. Lol.

May 27, 2018 1:08 a.m.

Okay, don't hate me but Aquaman is my #1 favorite DC hero. First comics I read as a kid we're Aquaman and Spiderman. Just loved him my entire life. He's truly a badass if you take the time to check out his lore.

Aquaman, Spear of Vengeance

Legendary Planeswalker - Aquaman

+2 Reveal cards from your library until you reveal a creature. Put it in your hand. Shuffle your library.

+1 Put a land card from your hand on to the battlefield. Until end of turn that land is an Island.

0 Aquaman, Spear of Vengeance becomes an Indestructible creature with Haste until with power and toughness equal to it's loyalty.

-12 Search your library for any number of Merfolk, Serpents, Leviathans, Krakens, and Whales and put them onto the battlefield. They gain haste until end of turn.


I see someone else posted before me so I won't post a new challenge. We can just do theirs.

May 26, 2018 11:47 p.m.


Legendary Creature - Golem


Whenever Farseeker attacks, you may choose to tap it. If you do, scry 3.

Whenever you scry, instead of putting a card on the bottom of your library you may put it in your graveyard. If you do, creatures you control get +1/+1 until end of turn.


I know the UW aggro Commander was already done, but this also looked like a fun challenge so I did both.

I picture Farseeker make out of vibrant crystals of cool hues. Blue, cyan, magenta. Would look so beautiful foiled out.

Take any creature from Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon and turn them into a Commander.

Kozilek's Dismissal

Legendary Instant - Eldrazi

(Legendary text)


Exile all spells you don't control. Each opponent loses life equal to the total mana cost of all spells countered in this way.

So, like a Legendary Sorcery you can't cast it unless you control a Legendary permanent.

Similarly to Eldrazi Conscription, this is an Eldrazi spell, allowing things like Eldrazi Temple to pay into it.

And with Hexproof, your opponents can't directly target this spell to counter it.

OP for EDH.

Make another EDH specific card that isn't just a new Commander.

May 26, 2018 2:14 a.m.

Absolute Completion

Legendary Sorcery

All creatures you control become artifacts in addition to their other types.

All non-creature artifacts you control become creatures with power and toughness equal to their converted mana cost.

Representing Y2K where people were afraid of the "rise of the machines" taking over.

Ignite the spark of any real-world historical figure.

May 26, 2018 1:03 a.m.

I'd say just preorder yourself a playset if they are less than $30 each.

May 25, 2018 6:15 p.m.

With the heavy inclusion of 'walkers recently, and the heavy push back into Saproling tokens from DOM, I'd have it designed as this:

Oath of Vraska

Legendary Enchantment

Whenever a Planeswalker enters the battlefield under your control, create two 1/1 Green Salroling creature tokens.

You may cast Planeswalker spells from your graveyard.

"To prevent even more unnecessary death, I'll keep watch."

Granted, it's not quite on par with what Vraska is all about, but we don't yet know her true motivation either. All we know is she is having second thoughts (boo!)

Lol. We'll see.

May 25, 2018 10:09 a.m.

Willing to bet $10 that we will see an Oath of Vraska

Jace mindwiped Vraska at the end of RIX, so that she could continue on her mission with Bolas. When she returns to Rav, Jace will restore her memories and they will partner (fml) up for whatever Bolas has planned.

This means Vraska sees Bolas as a threat, meaning she will likely join.

Recall that her, like with Tezzeret, are helping Bolas reluctantly because he threatened to kill them if they didn't.

So I could see an Oath of Vraska.

Echoing Crag

Probably should have made it a Snow Island Swamp. I wasn't sure what proper formatting would be. Also, I tried to use a mechanic from back in the day when Snow lands were a thing. Idk if I made a good card or not though. T'was before my time.

Hey, Femme_Fatale, did you use a website similar to MTGCardSmith to make that card or was it done freehand via something like Adobe?

Seems to me like we're doing a cycle of snow lands.

So we have a Creature Snow Land and a Utility Snow Land.

For reference, I guess we could do some of the following:

  • Depletion Snow Land
  • Hideaway Snow Land
  • Legendary Snow Land
  • Man Snow Land
  • Tribal Snow Land

That should give us enough variety to make things interesting.

May 25, 2018 7:58 a.m.

That's such a beautiful card. Can I have a foil playset?

May 25, 2018 7:28 a.m.

Got danget Bobbbyyy you forgot a challenge, lol.

Ugin, Elder Dragon

Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon


: Ugin, Elder Dragon deals X damage to target creature. If this creature would be put into the graveyard in this way, exile it instead.

When Ugin, Scion of Creation dies, return it to the battlefield transformed.


Grave of Ugin

: Add . If this mana is spent on a Dragon spell, the mana becomes a color of your choice.

Sorry for the shit names. My mind is blanked right now.

Make another creature / land

May 25, 2018 5:28 a.m.

Oh, man I missed that.

Guess I'll wait for the next big Standard set then, lol

Alright thanks everybody :)

May 24, 2018 10:33 a.m.

Said on Mardu Vampires...


I feel like a better use of white is Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle.

The fact is, between Legion Lieutenant, Stromkirk Captain and Captivating Vampire you're looking at getting a huge buff to your boardstate. You only need to swing with one guy to get the token. This means it saves your Mana for other uses later on.

Also, one of my favorite Sorins is Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. He grows your tribal board and his ult is super powerful.

Think of it this way; Against low creature decks, he gives you board advantage. Against tempo creature decks, he keeps you on par with blockers. And against heavy sets he let's you pick and choose their best for yourself. Alongside Captivating Vampire, he feeds tokens into your 5-tap control mechanic and later on just straight up steals them.

May 24, 2018 10:05 a.m.

Those are good points.

Maybe I should wait until we see what lands, if any, are printed? I know lands tend to be the big ones depending on which rotation they contain.

May 24, 2018 9:46 a.m.

Started as one thing and became something entirely different. God I love "interactive cards". Ones that ask you to do things and such. So much fun <3

Kackle, Gamemaster

Legendary Planeswalker - Kackle

+1 Flip three coins. For each heads, you gain 2 life. For each tails, this permanent deals 2 damage to any target.

-2 Pick a number between 1 and 6 and roll a six-sided die. If you win, draw that many cards. Otherwise, scry 2.

-7 Exile all permanents target player controls. Shuffle them into a face down pile and separate them into two face down piles. Their controller chooses one. Return all of those permanents to the battlefield face up and leave the other in exile.


So I've got a big challenge for y'all since we're doing this whole big design challenge.

Pick any tribe you want. Make a common, uncommon, rare, and mythic card for them. Each card must somehow represent or reinforce the tribe you've chosen. They don't all have to be creatures cards, and in fact none have to be.

Think like how Gideon, Ally of Zendikar fits Ally tribal decks even though he's a Planeswalker, or how Allied Reinforcements also assists Ally decks.

I'm sure that because of the bulk of this challenge it's possible for someone to be "ninja'd". That's okay if it happens. We can always catch up with later challenges like we always do :) I just wanna see what you guys can come up with on something this huge.

Otherwise, if you feel this challenge is a bit too large for a single person, why not pick one (Like the uncommon) and ask the next user to do one of the other three. All entirely up to you.

May 24, 2018 9:34 a.m.

I've been taking lessons on investing in MTG through the combination of Creepy Rudy (Alpha Investments) and The Professor (Tolarian College). I've made several hundred bucks buying and selling singles, but I've also been burned when cards I thought would spike didn't.

Also had cards go up I didn't think would, such as Combat Celebrant but I enjoy playing with him too much to sell.

I'm wanting to step out of singles and go into boxes.

Is Battlebond a worthwhile investment? I understand now that it's primarily for EDH (since THG isn't technically a format from my understanding, rather EDH with teams).

I see Commander Anthology sets usually retain value and occasionally spike. However those are preconstruction decks. This is an entire set.

I see original Conspiracy went up, and that's a much less played "format" (only viable in draft from what I'm told), and C2: Take the Crown didn't hold too well.

What sets B.Bond apart is that it's a set designed for one of the largest formats in the game, coming in with a lot of powerful reprints.

I have the capital set aside to where I could buy two cases (12 boxes). But I'm unsure if Battlebond is a good investment or if I should invest elsewhere.

  • Not putting it into a CD or an IRA.

I'm looking for quick turnover. Not long-term growth.

  • Stocks bro

Eh, I want to start small with something I can hold / use / part out rather than go all-or-nothing on something I may honestly forget about.

May 24, 2018 8 a.m.


Creature - Human Rogue (Uncommon)


: Exchange this creature's power and toughness.


So you can pay GU and have it survive a Lightning Bolt. And for GU, GU you can potentially have a 4/1 unblocked creature (change before blockers, than before damage resolves)

It also let's you pay higher amounts for crewing, fits into Human and Rogue tribal decks, and is a decent chump blocker.

Make another from the list of names given.
