"War. Peace. It matters not. The actions of the righteous will seem wicked in the eyes of the malevolent, and consequently vise-versa. What matters is not the opinions of nations or cultures, but of individuals. Do as you must, and nothing more." - Nethropi

This seems perfectly balanced--just the sort of card Wizards should be making more of! Since this land is legendary, I'd be interested as to what the rest of a cycle spawning from this idea would like like. Maybe an Rakdos land that makes everyone discard a card, then burns each player equal to the amount of cards of the type you chose? The possibilities are endless!

Omniscience_is_life, I had plans to finish it but I'm at work removing the walls to an office because a new machine is going there :p

I was looking for Shard / Wedge synergy. Haven't fully decided yet but I'm thinking Wedge?

  • Golgari = graveyard hate
  • Dimir = mill
  • Simic = renewal

As an example. So that in 3-color decks you can have legitimate synergy between the lands. Was wanting to set on Kawigama, hence the name. Just made up something that sounded Japanese.

The other Wedges may be placed on other worlds. Such as Mardu on Tarkir and Abzan on Ikoria. I think that could be fun. Maybe Jeskai on Dominaria and lastly Temur on, idk maybe Eldraine?

  • Boros = Chosen type gets +2/+0
  • Orzhov = Tap all creatures target player controls unless they pay 2 life per creature
  • Rakdos = X damage divided as you choose among tapped creatures

Building off of this, I see the Abzan cards making a life gain/pillow fort set. With Izsheio and the Orzhov one above, could create a fog effect, or maybe a temporary Privileged Position.
