Okay so here's a bunch of suggestions that fit Gyruda's requirement and then some things to then take out.

Put in: Arcane Signet, Wake the Dead, Gravespawn Sovereign, Embalmer's Tools, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Disciple of Bolas, Forgotten Creation, Notion Thief, Oversold Cemetery, Skull Prophet, Clever Impersonator, Garruk Relentless  Flip, The Cauldron of Eternity, Sire of Stagnation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. The cards in your maybeboard seem good too.

Take out: Cranial Archive, Enhanced Surveillance, Devious Cover-Up, Gather the Pack, Migratory Greathorn, Polukranos, Unchained, Shepherd of Rot, Vengeful Dead, Void Beckoner, and all petitioners.

In terms of land, there are a lot of cheap options to include that will make a three color deck a lot better: Choked Estuary, Sunken Hollow, Botanical Sanctum, Blooming Marsh, Fetid Pools, Hissing Quagmire, Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor, Woodland Cemetery, Bad River, Ash Barrens, Dakmor Salvage, Exotic Orchard, Witch's Cottage, and stuff like that. Replace the guildgates and bounce lands and a few basics with those if you can.

And lastly if you want to run the petitioners then you should put more of them in, otherwise having just 8 won't do a whole lot for you most of the time other than for fun.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: yeah but that's what I meant by the preface; since for almost all PWs, more loyalty isn't a bad thing, the usage of Nesting Grounds just becomes a bad proliferate and non-novel. (but sure, the prospect of getting an ultimate out a turn early out of nowhere makes it worth considering). Only exception I could think of is moving a counter from Garruk Relentless  Flip to transform him right away (and letting you activate his backface abilities on the same turn), and Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis, where you can -2 her twice before killing her with Nesting Grounds so that she can escape

Confused and frustrated about the templating difference for Mindleecher and Haldan. Color cost agnosticism should be universal when it comes to casting other people's stuff for retail price.

Not a big deal but Glademuse doesn't feel like a mono- since it's an enemy of and has City of Solitude & Dosan the Falling Leaf

WUBRG97: Hmmm. If I were trying to tone down the power level, I'd add a few of my older favorite cards back in: Parallel Lives, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Archfiend of Ifnir, Survival of the Fittest... But I'm probably not going to make an explicit separate list with these changes. I will say that I've never been a fan of Blowfly Infestation here; it causes Problems and is often a dead card. I have easier-to-tutor-for combos :)

skeletonkey8: The only real cards I'd add if I had infinite money are Bayou, the rest of the fetches, maybe Chains of Mephistopheles or Living Plane? Plus foiling more things, of course ;)

Beast Within, Garruk Relentless  Flip, maybe Savage Swipe???

Other great 1 cmc options inclue Hornet Sting and Gut Shot.

Not exactly the best of the bunch :/

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.

If Ob Nixilis Reignited's only purpose is card draw, out for Guardian Project

That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.

Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.

Kodama's Reach in for Golgari Signet, Circuitous Route in for Fellwar Stone, Far Wanderings in for Wayfarer's Bauble - net same mana without threshold, but with it a lot better.
Solemn Simulacrum in for Artisan of Kozilek- Artisan is nice but so expensive, while the sad robot is ramp, card draw, and sac fodder.

Death's Presence in for Nyx Weaver - You don't lose any power for sacking your creatures.

Crucible of Worlds in for Whispersilk Cloak

Illusionist's Bracers in for Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Archfiend of Despair in for Boneyard Wurm- have to cut one of this effect at this point, Wound Reflection in for Liliana, Death's Majesty - could take out the other Lily, but her best case scenario is better.

These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.

Be careful about putting the Cauldron out too early, since it prevents Death Triggers.

Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.

Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.

It may be worthwhile to also request a limit on the PCs that users on the site can create. While coming up with something akin to Progenitus is great and all, it immediately offsets the dynamic nature of the game and does one of two things;

  • 1.) Other users will justifiably increase their own character's power level in order to meet that of what the current meta is now described as.
  • 2.) The challenges will become increasingly mundane as everyone now has plot armor.

In a word, let's try to avoid Power Creep.

To do so, I think the best way possible is to limit two things:

  • 1.) The color identity of the PCs. Nothing 4c or 5c. That gives far too much power to a character. While it is true that 4c is one of the hardest things to achieve balance for, it is also a pitfall as I have seen many users in the Custom Card Challenge slap on paragraphs worth of information, mechanics, and abilities thinking that with each slice of the pie, you can increase the overall potential by 100%.
  • 2.) PC cards should have a limitation of characters involved. That is to say, you can do whatever you'd like, but you have a physical character limit for the card. If you can fit it onto a realistic card, go wild. If you can't, trim it down a bit.

While Garruk Relentless  Flip has the most text on the card, between both that side and Garruk, the Veil-Cursed we must keep in mind that we are dealing with single-sided cards.

I'd like to turn our attention to a creature with, oddly enough, no mechanics whatsoever: Yargle, Glutton of Urborg . Including spaces, Yargle has 189 characters to the mechanic box of the card.

I believe this is more than enough, but let's be cool and round it up to an even 200. If you can make your card work in 200 characters (Symbols count as 1x character each), you're good. If not, please trim it down.

You can use THIS SITE to check character counts. It includes spaces when determining it.

By my own admission, Braux actually fails this criteria as he sits at 291 characters with flavor text, and 219 without. I think we can honestly disregard flavor text as it holds no mechanical function on the card.

Zacama, Primal Calamity actually holds 235, so consider the 200 limit more of a loose speed bump. If you need to go 10 - 30 characters over, feel free to as long as it is thematically and flavorfully appropriate. Once you reach 200 characters, look into simplifying, restricting, or nerfing.

And there is a strong tendency to replace character names with ~ on the card. While this can help reduce character limitations, keep in mind it IS kind of cheating - especially if your character name is a very long one. Some cards, such as Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig will actually reduce the full name of the card down to just the first name of the character. Consider that as a template to save space if you must. In fact, doing so for Braux (My Minotaur) further reduces his text box down to 198 - 2x characters under the 200 soft limit I mentioned earlier.

By the way; Yorvo? 283 characters. So, again, it's really more of a soft limit / suggestion, not a concrete rule.

That being said, Boza has ultimate authority in this thread and follow whatever their wishes are :)


Everything above the line? 3,271 characters. :3

So I've picked up Boneyard Wurm and added in a few more bits of token generation with Garruk Relentless  Flip and Squirrel Nest . I've also swapped out Naturalize for Avoid Fate to help protect me from removal. Lastly, I've started building out my sideboard for more specialized situations

Stomping Ground is pretty pricey but I'll keep it in maybe until I have the extra cash for them. As for the walkers, lets say I get rid of Domri Rade and replace him with two Arlinn Kord  Flip and two Garruk Relentless  Flip. Next I can get rid two Reckless Waif  Flip and one of each enchantment to put in four Nightpack Ambusher . What do you guys think?
