Godsend

Legendary Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +3/+3

Whenever equipped creature blocks or is blocked by one or more creatures you may exile one of them. Your opponents can't cast cards with the same name of a card exiled by this.

Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)

Oh and maybe it was obvious but turns out Heliod, the Radiant Dawn  Flip is part of a cycle of ally-colored transformers, joined by at least Etali () and Ayara (). Any takers for blue and green? Probably safe to say that it'll be still-living characters who have had a mono-colored legendary creature card and are from a plane that's been in Standard-legal set. (I'm hoping for Fblthp, and that he'll be the new main villin in ten years.)

New Elspeth is... not all that exciting, despite afaik being the only in-story preview? And yes, turns out she does have (a fake) Godsend, somehow. Oh and Serra is kind of still around?

Ranke feels like he was written as more red than black ("You can't tell me what to do!"). And Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, by contrast, seemed more white than red in how serious and responsible he was acting.

DreadKhan on Yugioh in MTG

It's really hard to think of 'on flavor' abilities for cards that openly had no abilities other than 'big dumb beatstick', most things that would reflect an especially brutal/effective creature are potentially out.

I wonder about something like Godsend, where its super good at killing anything that it damages, reflecting it's combat supremacy from LOB era, but it's not like Blue-Eyes does anything special with dead creatures, so I don't love it. That's why I like keywords, at least these are 'French vanilla', maybe just throw on a bunch of keywords to supplement? Dragon Tyrant was kind of the Magic equivalent of Blue-Eyes when it came out, it's incredibly big and comes with built in sacrifice (like Blue-Eyes). Tyrant combines Flying, Trample, Doublestrike and Firebreathing to make an extremely dangerous creature that still feels very 'French vanilla'. In Magic, there are Waterbreathing creatures (that use mana to gain +x/+0), and White has the odd one kicking around (I think every colour does ultimately), you could throw something like that on. I think First Strike would be more on flavor than Doublestrike for Blue-Eyes, but I like combining Menace with Flying (and the pro-weenies), it makes Blue-Eyes very hard and costly to block, but like in Yugioh it doesn't come with Fairy Meteor Crush stapled to it, so no Trample is on theme. Your Pro-Weenies reminds me of good old White card Infinite Authority, this card sees essentially zero play but it reminds me of the effect, since it's so hard on weenies. Authority as an ability would be pretty useful on a creature, definitely not sure if that'd be more printable than Pro-Weenies as you originally posted, but it'd be a nice ability that ends up feeling fairly simple/straightforward.

As for Legendary, the rules/lore there in Magic is very... irregular, and it doesn't make complete sense. IIRC in Yugioh there is only a certain number of Blue-Eyes (from the show?), so you could put a rule on the card 'there may only be X Blue-Eyes on the battlefield at any time', Star Wars CCG used to have permanents that you could have 2 or 3 copies of in play, in addition to stuff you could only have 1 of, the concept would work fine here too, only this could care about both players' boards. Too much hassles?

In regards to Dark Magician, there is a very big concern in regards to the second ability, with spells that either use more than 1 variable, don't use mana for one or more variables (and involve paying a non-mana cost for X), and that re-use the variable (spells costing XX or XXX) are all busted beyond words with it. I like the idea, but there are a lot of X spells that just giving them X=3 wouldn't work. I like the first ability to an extent, but I wish it was smaller/less mana, but it's a clunky Yugioh card so you're stuck making it huge.

Thank you for the ideas.

I have some of the Kor Outfitter - I had already been thinking to swap out the Ethercaste. I liked them because they were another artifact creature like the Esper Sentinel and could be immune to both Archmage's Charm and Wrenn and Six, and I'm not really a fan of the Esper Sentinel anyway.

I had been contemplating dropping either the Ethercaste Knight or Esper Sentinel and adding in the Kor Outfitter.

I'll think on the Godsend and also Argentum Armor also. 3 games last night I was left with an Argentum Armor in my hand that I never played.

Of course! Again awesome job with coming up with this for your friend. I would just add that maybe you'd want to consider getting rid of the warrior subtheme, only because you could utilize more slots for heavier equipment and aura spells. If you want some inspiration (not saying it's the exact way to go) check out my Jor-Kadeen deck when you get the chance. Actually looking at your commander here, I should probably think of slotting him in my 99... you're running some neat dwarves here too!

Additional ideas:

Godsend fantastic removal/evasion Sword of the Animist ramp for Boros Shadowspear filthy Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, and Whispersilk Cloak for evasion.

Your commander already draws you cards which is awesome, but maybe Stone Haven Outfitter can also be nifty.

Cheers

Hmm, for purely more swords how about

Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho

Godsend is kind of swordy

Icingdeath, Frost Tyrant is a dragon who becomes a sword

and the biggest of them all Worldslayer

But really, this is awesome, and I'm sure your friend will appreciate it a ton : )
