I do not object to all changes that have happened in this game, such as changing "comes into play" to "enters the battlefield" or "removed from game" to "exiled," because there was a clear need for such changes, but creating a new colorless mana symbol or having black cards deal damage rather than cause life loss was pointless, as there was no significant need for such changes to occur.

Actually, that's not a bad card to run in my deck actually. I already run Archmage and Riddlesmith, I can easily slot it in!
Mox Amber works just as well. However, you need to have your commander in play or some other legendary creature/planeswalker.

Domri the Insistent
Legendary Planeswalker - Domri
+1 The next creature spell you cast this turn can't be countered.
+1 Target creature gains haste and trample until end of turn.
-2 Draw a card, then you may put a creature card with converted mana cost 3 or less from your hand onto the battlefield.
Starting loyalty 3
Young and angry. I probably got ninja'd, but if not, wild card.

It seems to me like Phage the Untouchable would be the prime Commander for Nihilist. Is there any banlist?
This is a cool idea, and I might introduce it around. I'll start with brewing something up and seeing what happens.

I'll put in a submission for the "discuss a custom card" article.
Ronin Rebel Leader Show
Creature - Human Samurai
Bushido 2, dethrone
At the beginning of your end step, if Ronin Rebel Leader's power is 7 or higher, sacrifice it and create X 1/1 red Warrior tokens, where X is its power.
No new mechanics, and an original card that I believe is worthy of some Deep Analysis.

Oketra, Noble Champion
Legendary Creature - God
Double strike, indestructible
Oketra, Noble Champion can't attack or block unless you control at least two more untapped creatures than an opponent.
: Create a 1/1 white Warrior creature token with vigilance, then tap target creature.
Create a God that interacts with another tribe in some way.

You're commenting quite a bit on changes to the game that you don't like. May I ask what exactly you don't like about the changes? At least in regard to paper vs. digital, Wizards of the Coast is a for-profit company, looking to make their product accessible to as many people as possible, while keeping their proprietary system as consistent as possible, for the purpose of, yes, making as much money as possible. For stats/CMC ratios, the 1:1 you describe primarily applies to early to midgame creatures in mostly , , and and at lower rarities. I agree that has been getting hugely pushed, especially with Demons, but for , that ratio is largely a baseline or minimum. I also submit that there are far more creatures being printed with a lower ratio than higher, but the higher-ratio creatures get more attention. I'm just wondering why you have strong objections.

BS-T and DemonDragonJ The "all the cards in your hand" discard instead of simply "Discard your hand" likely come from needing the paper game to match the digitally programmed game. The first wording should allow the program to count the number of cars discarded when necessary ("then draw that many"), and the second wording would be used when the number of cards discarded is irrelevant.

Would you accept a card I posted to the Custom Card Challenge thread, or does it need to be an original creation?

Sannua the Torturer
Legendary Creature - Demon Wizard
, : Exchange the base power and toughness of Sannua and another target creature until end of turn.
At the beginning of your end step, if you didn't activate an ability of this creature, you lose 3 life.
Create a Hydra that has an X in its text box, but not its mana cost.
September 14, 2018 9:28 p.m.
I'm noticing that the Guildmages now have a tap requirement for their abilities. Older Guildmages tended toward abilities that were expensive, but could eat up all kinds of unused mana. Now, they just seem expensive. Am I expecting too much from this cycle? Will the tapping actually make a difference?
September 14, 2018 9:15 p.m.
Creature - Naga Assassin
, : Naga creatures you control have deathtouch until end of turn.
Whenever an Assassin creature you control blocks or becomes blocked, you may pay . If you do, target creature gets -2/-0 until end of turn.
I hope that gets the flavor across appropriately.
Create a land with indestructible.

Create a Theros funerary mask as a card, is my challenge. Not the 3/7 Pharika.
September 12, 2018 4:17 p.m.
Let's make Pharika, God of Medicine a 3/7.
September 12, 2018 4:16 p.m.
Pharika, God of Medicine
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God
As long as your devotion to green and white is less than seven, Pharika, God of Medicine is not a creature.
Whenever you gain life, prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to you this turn.
: Gain 1 life.
Create a Theros funerary mask as a card.
September 12, 2018 4:15 p.m.
Has anyone mentioned Mausoleum Secrets yet? Tutor a black (anything) card with mana cost less than or equal to Undergrowth. It's my sleeper pick to make a Modern or Legacy showing.
On an unrelated note, I always have to respect Izzet card names and flavor text.

I'm going to argue against Rakdos being under Bolas. Sure, it's got the right colors, but so does Dimir, and they're pretty much confirmed against. The Rakdos are deeply anarchist, and manipulating them seems to be no more effective than showing a cultist something spiky or flammable, then getting out of the way. Despite this, the Rakdos cultists generally don't appear to be stupid or gullibe, and I think they would recognize an attempted takeover, either overt or covert. The Rakdos will be nominally anti-Bolas, but mostly enjoying the carnage.
My guess is the Gruul, because they actively desire and work toward the collapse of the Ravnican society, the Azorius, led by a Bolas-controlled puppet, and the Orzhov, who Kaya may or may not be taking an interest in, will join the Golgari and Izzet under Bolas.
September 11, 2018 11:51 p.m.
Huh. Ninja'd again. Not surprised. My challenge or CheeseBro's challenge.
September 11, 2018 11:20 p.m.
Artifact Creature - Demon
When Glass-Shard Slasher enters the battlefield, you may put a -1/-1 counter on any number of creatures you control.
, Remove all -1/-1 counters from creatures you control: Distribute that many -1/-1 counters among any number of target creatures.
Create a creature that's at least two of the big signature monster-y types: Angel, Sphinx, Demon, Dragon, or Hydra. More is better, and if you make something that's all five and makes sense, you have my respect forever.
September 11, 2018 11:17 p.m.
Lavinia, Force of Law
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
Opponents can't activate abilities that aren't mana abilities.
Each player can't cast more than two spells each turn.
"Close the gates. Increase patrols. Nothing good will come of this, and I fear for the safety of our structure."
Create a new mechanic for one of the guilds in the next set.
