DemonDragonJ on Random New Cards

2 months ago

I have created several new cards, and, rather than make a separate thread for each card, I have decided to post all of them in this thread, for everyone here to review.

Infernal Witness Show

This creature is a black version of Eternal Witness; normally, black can return only creature cards or cards of its own color from the graveyard, but I feel that returning any card in exchange for loss of life is an acceptable bend.

Gift of Erebos Show

I am very surprised that WotC never made a card such as this during either the original Theros block or Theros: beyond Death, because it is such a simple and straightforward design. In my opinion, 2 mana would have been too low of a cost for this card, and 4 mana would have been too high, so I compromised and gave it a mana cost of 3.

Champion's Belt Show

This card was inspired by, and modeled after, the ridiculously large and fancy belts that are given to winners of fighting events, so it naturally has abilities that focus on combat; it was also partially inspired by Champion's Helm, so it provides additional bonuses to legendary creatures.

Soul Evasion Show

Soul Evasion is the name of an epic song by an obscure death metal band named Chastisement, and I knew that I had to make a card with that name (because the Phryexians are very much this game's equivalent of the death metal genre), which is modeled after Cloudshift, but, because of its more flexible casting cost, it cannot be used to permanently take control of an opponent's creature.

Phyrexian Gatekeeper Show

This creature is a Phyrexian version of Loxodon Gatekeeper, but with a higher overall mana cost to balance the fact that its cost is more flexible, and I also increased its power and toughness and gave it vigilance to balance the increased cost (and because I believe that a 2/3 for 4 mana was a terrible bargain in the original card).

What does everyone else say about these cards? Do you like them?

Looks like an older list, but I am cirrently building derevi stax because I took the mana denizl cards out of my chulane teller of tales deck in favor of a more proactive model. I am surprised not to see Loxodon Gatekeeper he is my favorite in stasis decks. Thanks for posting there are a lot of interesting card choices I will consider.

Also while you're kind of on to it already, more cards which discourages your opponents from casting their stuff so that you have more to work with: AEther Barrier, Aura of Silence, Aven Mindcensor, Frozen Aether, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Land Equilibrium, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Mana Breach, Overburden, Suture Priest

zapyourtumor on watcha gonna do wit all that junk

5 months ago

Animate Wall and Elephant Ambush aren't legal, but at least they're the worst cards in the deck.

Loxodon Hierarch is a decent elephant. Ivorytusk Fortress is actual junk colors, but you would probably need to build around it more (works really well with Venerated Loxodon though). Loxodon Gatekeeper is a good hate card. Loxodon Smiter can be your version of Obstinate Baloth in the sideboard.

Some other cards are pretty good but also rly expensive like Spelltithe Enforcer and Terastodon (probably better for EDH)

For lands, have you considered Sunpetal Grove and Razorverge Thicket?

DadHumanPraetor on Mangara Stax / Hatebears

Alms Collector and Loxodon Gatekeeper and Archangel of Tithes all seem to fit here. Maybe Aurification and by far my favorite white instant is Abeyance

I thing Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power make sense in this deck, because even if you end up ramping your opponents with the double white mana, you get draw cards if they use it to cast multiple spells.

DadHumanPraetor on Boros Stax | Primer

7 months ago

Do you think Urabrask the Hidden Thalia, Heretic Cathar Loxodon Gatekeeper Blind Obedience type of effects would help? Makes it hard for opponents to pick whether to attack or block with the creatures they untap with ...and Windborn Muse Ghostly Prison effects help close the value gap because opponents have to stop progressing board in order to attack in the early game. I play Legion's Initiative Eerie Interlude Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero and Tajic, Legion's Edge and a lot of wipes so I can reset their boards while mine remains in tact.
Its tough getting outvalued. So many awesome cards that have no home in edh because boros gets no card draw or ramp. Heres my experience with aurelia- I finally get land to play my commander! and someone with a counterspell counters it. Cool. Now my turn ends and they begin their's. They draw 3 cards play 2 lands and drop a creature and leave 2 blue mana up and pass it back. Fughhhh
