Theme is king! Throw off the shackles of function and efficiency! Ditch your sol ring and have some fun!

If there’s room, it might be worth tossing in a Keldon Warlord as a backup/holdout. We like swarms of things, right? ;p

Check my banding edh deck (because of course I made one of those) for more banding ideas! https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/banding-of-brothers/

I sincerely hope that Kaladesh is, in fact, as far from the traditional sword and sorcery theme they will stray. I wasn’t a fan of the Walking Dead stuff, but whatever. I can work at ignoring that, and if they need money to keep providing me with magic cards, so be it. Dragging all of magic into other realms with ray-guns, refrigerators, rifle cartridges, and satellites will be a serious blow to my interest. I’ve already got Shadowrun, Aliens vs Colonial Marines, and Werewolf The Apocalypse card games. Please don’t.

If it has you shuffle all your tokens into your library, would that be a way to trigger Battle of Wits, before they disappear “afterwards?” I’m not sure how that fits into “the beginning of your upkeep.

I love the idea of giving this card more looks, though, as it’s /way/ up there on the theme-graph!

Marton will be AMAZING as a turn-eleven surprise, after everyone is slugging it out and climbing over each other to kill Krenko a few times. One-off/unexpected cards are some of the SWEETEST fruit you will ever taste in M:tG and I look forward to it (hopefully) working for you!!

I love this!! Not sure if crab-people fit the theme, but Homarid Spawning Bed could possibly provide some value in the face of removal. Feel free to check my Briny Deep deck for anything else you might enjoy (I’ve got a horseshoe in there!). +1 for sure!!!

Sorry for the second post, but I wanted to throw some of the artist names that I love out there: Quentin Hoover, Mark Poole, Margaret Organ-Keane, Phil Foglio, Anthony Waters, and last BUT NOT LEAST Melissa Benson. There are a lot more, but I need to get to work ;p

I love, and miss, the imperfection of the painted cards. The old-time heavy-hitters like Goblin Shrine, Terror, Regeneration, Holy Strength, Stasis, and Mana Vault (there’s one for each color!) were full of motion, weirdness, mystery, and made me feel like the cards were actually unearthed from some sort of forgotten magical vault. The stuff nowadays is too...perfect, in my mind. I’ll pick a new card, almost at random: Farfinder is the second card from Ikoria I saw. The art is great, and the skill needed to make it is FAR beyond my capacity. Having acknowledged that, it’s polished to perfection...to the point of near-boredom. I really can’t get emotionally connected to it, and that makes me sort of sad. ::shrug-emoji::

Thanks, VampDemigod! This is a crowd favorite in my neck of the woods. Who doesn’t approve of a SPOOKY BOOKCASE anyways? :D

Stellar addition to a natural disaster deck!!! 100% in favor. ;)

Killer theme - well done!!

I love the combat-trickiness of General Jarkeld, maybe you’d be able to put something fun together with him? Top-tier flavor to boot...

Stardragon - no sweat! I was just hoping to round out your decision-making with a little theme-heavy jank. If you work that into your process you’ll find something fun sometimes! Can’t wait it to see the deck!

For some reason I always come back to Goblin Grenade when it comes to spell costs. It helps me keep that colon ( “ : “ ) in mind. Gotta pay the cost to cast the spell. Everyone’s comments have been great, but I thought I’d throw in my $0.02. [note: not that I’m previewing the card, I guess they got rid of the colon. Sorry, I’m too old now, I guess.]

Spreading Plague doesn’t seem like a random card at first, but it completely changes the dynamic of casting creatures. It’s been hilarious in the past for me, maybe you could work it in somehow?

Jinxed Choker and Jinxed Ring are fun. It seems like I draw at least one of them every time I play my haunted house deck, and they generate some fun...interpersonal scenarios ;p

It’ll be similar to the boots scenario. Putting Swiftfoot Boots on a creature protects the creature, but you can still hit the boots with Artificer's Hex ;)

Check out my decks, I’ve got both a Haunted House deck and a Coven of Witches deck. Steal whatever ideas you want, and ask any questions you’d like to - welcome aboard!!! Note: if you’re looking to actually win, there are a lot of skilled players here too...

Now I’m just looking at cards I’ve had fun with: Energy Tap, Preacher and Exorcist, Frankenstein's Monster....man, there are SO MANY weird cards that bring back the Old Weird(tm) of M:tG. You all should just take a stroll through some of the old sets. You don’t even have to thank me! ;p
