    Glad you like it. I did way too much background research trying to make it, and trying to make it so it fit everything and was balanced: first I went to the What Colors of Magic [...] thread and read what you wrote there, distilling the essence of what you said about each color and how it applies to you. Then I went to your profile to find random things and recent posts which, honestly is kind-of stalkerish, but I figured it would be alright for the purposes of this thread. Using a lot of Google, I looked up what abilities are associated with what color and sentiment, and how they're generally fluffed/flavored, and matching it to what you said in that thread. Then I looked up dozens of sample cards (because I haven't played in long enough to remember) trying to properly balance it ((because of what happened last time I tried making a MtG card, with everyone calling it underpowered and underwhelming and weird)) and base the mechanics and how the costs work off of real cards.

    For the flavor text I did site-specific google searches for random quotes and "Blue Ghost". It was in an old Birthday thread for you.
    It's fine that you don't have a card for me; I wasn't expecting one and I hadn't even posted permission yet, either. It's not that necessary anyway; guilting you into making one would make me feel guilty. Plus, you still were going to render the Fel Bargain card.

    Anyway, I just spent too long rambling my thoughts and I really need to start shadowing someone else to make a card for them.
    Wow, that's really impressive. I'm quite flattered.

    And I made a card for you! I hope it's satisfactory.
