Been playing competitively since Khans of Tarkir standard, where my brewed Mardu Midrange won me my first major tournament! Ever since then I love to play tier 2 decks in standard, usually because they’re the most fun.

Man I was at the last page haha ignore mine.

Zepplins, the blimps? Okay.

Lead Zepplin

Artifact - Vehicle


Whenever ~ attacks, create a 1/1 colorless Blimp Rider for each creature that crewed ~

Crew 7


Made a small pun lol

So Throne of Eldraine is the Fall set, going back to Lorwyn. Create a faerie tribal card that you would like to see played in standard!

July 18, 2019 3:55 p.m.

Rakshasa’s Mystic

Enchantment Creature - Cat Demon Shaman

When ~ enters the battlefield, put the top 3 cards of your library into your graveyard, you may return a creature that entered the graveyard this turn to your hand

Bestow: Enchanted Creature gets +4/+4


I think this fits Sidisi’s brood fairly well. It could also return her the turn after she enters the field, if she attacks and then dies. Also, it triggers even as a bestow and a bonus! It triggers a second time when the bestowed creature dies!

I like this challenge, another plane! Or at least another color pairing.

Volrath, Commander of Rath

Legendary Creature - Phyrexian Shapeshifter

When you cast ~, exile target creature in a graveyard. ~ enters as a copy of that creature

When ~ deals combat damage to a player, you may exile target creature in a graveyard

: ~ becomes a copy of target creature exiled by ~


He also has mind control abilities but I didn’t want to make him TOO op. I hope I did him some justice. Only know what the wiki just told me haha.

Create another legendary creature or planeswalker from lore who has not been depicted in the cards.

July 17, 2019 2:02 p.m.

I’ll attempt the same challenge. I’m not sure what specifically blurs the lines between the rarities, so criticism would be nice. Also, none of those are creatures so gonna make mine a creature.

Silent Assassin

Creature - Vampire Assassin

Flash, deathtouch


Pseudo-removal with a could-be relevant typing if there’s a lord or any tribal synergy in the set.

My challenge is a wildcard, but come up with a spicy challenge.

July 17, 2019 1:56 a.m.

Do TheRickDecks challenge: monocolor card with a keyword not often utilized by that color.

July 16, 2019 11:39 p.m.

For @Moonhollow’s challenge

Lost at Sea

Exile target creature, it gains suspend. Put X time counters on it, where X is the number of islands on the battlefield.

July 16, 2019 11:36 p.m. Edited.

Monarch’s Decree

Tribal Instant - Illithid

Destroy target creature with power greater than 2. If you Control an Illithid, draw a card.

I feel like that’s modern playable. I based the name off of the last Illithid. Create a true Illithid monarch, complete with legendary creature typing. Maybe some flavor text for background because I have no idea what an Illithid is.

July 16, 2019 2:27 p.m.

I thought Goblin Dark-Dwellers completely nailed a Snapcaster remake. Torrential Gearhulk as well. I’ll try to be different than them.

Snap-faster Mage

When you cast ~, exile target card in a graveyard, you may play that card for the remainder of the game, and may spend mana of any color to cast it


Ninja’d. Do above challenge.

July 15, 2019 9:17 p.m.

Still looking over the list, sorry.

Farhaven Elf could either be a better ramp card like Cultivate or Solemn Simulacrum if you want the creature.

July 14, 2019 12:46 p.m.

Death Baron seems like the least essential card. It makes your Sidisi zombies, and your other few zombies bigger but other than that it’s just meh. I always recommend more ways to gain card advantage. Phyrexian Arena is the most common, but Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora are my personal favorites. Since they can draw you multiple cards in the first few turns, setting up for powerful and explosive plays.

July 14, 2019 12:21 p.m.

Solaire, Astora’s Knight

+2: Target creature you control gets +1/+1 and Vigilance

+1: Create a 2/2 Knight token with Undying

-3: Exile Target creature

-8: You get an emblem with: Plains you Control gain : deal 2 damage to any target

3 loyalty

Praise the Sun!

Same challenge

July 14, 2019 11:13 a.m.

I think for the Boon cycle to be “fixed” they all have to deal damage or cause life loss in some way. How do you truly value 3 mana vs 3 damage vs 3 cards? You’d think 3 life and 3 damage are equitable, until you actually play the game, but those aren’t even remotely similar in power level.

July 13, 2019 10:16 a.m.

Said on What is Grixis ......


I wouldn’t worry about rotation until well after the spoilers start rolling in. Just save your wildcards until then, unless there is some M20 stuff you know you will be playing. I personally have Esper Hero built, and while it’s pretty awful to play right now I’m definitely not spending any of the few wildcards I have until I know what I want to play in the Fall.

July 12, 2019 2:30 p.m.

Vannifar, the Combine’s Overseer

Legendary Creature - Elf Mutant

When Vannifar enters the battlefield, sacrifice any number of creatures. Search your library for a creature whose converted mana cost is equal to the combined total of those creatures converted mana cost, and put that creature onto the battlefield tapped


Sooo I believe the cycle is finished.

My next challenge is a slight re-hash of a previous one I’ve done that people seemed to enjoy.

The old challenge was to take a non legendary creature and make it legendary, making sure to scale its abilities for its new Legendary status. The new challenge is the same, but either ADD or SUBTRACT any number of colors from that creature.

July 10, 2019 10:13 p.m.

Lavinia, for Gideon’s Honor

Legendary Creature - Human Guildmaster

During your turn, other creatures you control have Indestructible

Each spell that targets a permanent costs more to cast


Continue the cycle, or create a creature that draws cards somehow.

July 10, 2019 2:43 p.m.


Legendary Enchantment - Regime

When ~ enters the battlefield, put a Regime counter on target land you don’t control

Lands with Regime counters lose all abilities and tap for

: Put a Regime counter on target land, then if there are 7 or more Regime counters on the battlefield, transform ~


When ~ enters the battlefield, exile all lands with Regime counters. Create a Treasure token for each land exiled this way. Choose a player.

The chosen player can’t cast spells.

Create another Regime!

Gotta agree with dingusdingo and not just because Sarkhan420X is being unnecessarily douche-baggy. Can we move on now?

July 9, 2019 11:24 p.m.

Safe Passage and other cards similar would beg to differ. White often likes to do something and gain life while doing so. It usually just makes those effects cost - more

July 9, 2019 10:41 p.m.

Haunted Scenario

Create a 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying. If ~’s madness cost was paid, create 3 of those tokens instead


Create a legendary tribal enchantment that benefits from the Champion mechanic in some way. It doesn’t necessarily have to use the Champion keyword, it could just have a useful ETB ability that would be nice if the creature died.
