Generic Mook
Creature - Human Mook
When Generic Mook enters the Battlefield, choose a color. Generic Mook becomes that color.
You may have any number of cards named "Generic Mook" in your deck.
If Generic Mook blocks or is blocked by a Legendary creature, Generic Mook becomes a 0/1 creature with no abilities until the end of the turn.

Another Mook!

... and for some reason, the forum wouldn't let me put in the proper mana symbol for 1 generic mana. Oh well.

Actually, I thought of a nice add on to that subject to make it work. I just need to do some research and planning first.

Said on Regenerate THIS!...


VesuvanDoppelbanger: Not Modern Legal, alas.

May 25, 2017 7:29 p.m.

Guftders: Dammit! Now I need a new subject for Pattern Recognition in a couple weeks! ;) Oh well.

Ghostly Echo

Return target creature from your graveyard to the battlefield. It is a Blue Illusion in addition to its other colors and types and gains "If this creature would be the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it." Exile that creature at the end of the turn, or if it would leave the battlefield.

Make a reanimation spell.

Agony of Knowledge

At the beginning of each player's end step, they take damage equal to the number of cards they have in hand in excess of the number of cards you have in your hand.
Hellbent - Instead, that player takes twice that damage, and the damage cannot be prevented or redirected.

Make an in-colors card with Super-Haste, Super-Shroud and Super-Trample. That doesn't have 'super' anywhere in it.

May 21, 2017 1:53 p.m.

Said on The Sram Hammer...


You call this deck the "Sram Hammer", and forget to include Loxodon Warhammer? I am disappoint, son! ;)

But yeah, if you're going for Voltron, having an equipment that provides Trample is pretty good.

May 21, 2017 1:30 a.m.

Said on Three Actions - ......


Why the Non-land, Non-Creature as a "Commander"? I did a quick Gatherer search -![%22Land%22]+![%22Creature%22]+[%22Legendary%22] - and most of them are Artifacts, with a few enchantments smattered among them.

Even then, you're going to need to do something about Honden of Infinite Rage - free passive damage, Mindslaver, for all the fun that comes with that being able to repeatedly steal your opponent's turns...

Also, your format encourages direct damage, rather than creatures. Yes, it's probably more efficient to use them as attackers in the long run, but being able to only attack with three at once is a massive hindrance, especially when the defender can block with three creatures as well. Prodigal Pyromancer hits up the best of both styles, being repeatable direct damage without taking up an action on your turn - because you can use him on your opponent's turn. And he's Common, so you can have four in your already burn-oriented deck, no problems.

I would run a deck, with Red for the burn and white for the damage prevention. Heck, this is a format in which Healing Salve is actually viable!

May 20, 2017 2:51 a.m.

seshiro_of_the_orochi: Crucible of Worlds made many of the Leviathan's playable. Combined with some of Green's "Play an extra land each turn" effects, and there is a remarkable level of synergy in 's ability to put out the big guys.

May 20, 2017 1:02 a.m.

Final Rest

Exile target card from a graveyard. Until the end of the game, no player may cast a spell with the same name as that card. Exile Final Rest.

Because I write about such things, make a Leviathan.

May 19, 2017 10:06 p.m.

Said on Board Games?...


I find this thread hilarious.


Magic was originally designed to be played between rounds at Boardgame Tournaments by players looking to pass the time.

Oh, how the world turns.

I would suggest Codenames.

May 19, 2017 9:37 p.m.

SaberTech: It's downside is that it only has 7 power, making it a three-turn killer, rather than the two-turn kill from something more powerful.

May 19, 2017 9:29 p.m.

Said on Leviathans!...


Adding to the Article.

May 19, 2017 9:28 p.m.

I have to say though - it's Jokulmorder that is my fave Leviathan. Something about being called "World Killer" appeals to me.

What are your guys favorites?
