    Same as above.

    I get what you're saying. And probably makes more sense; though the mana generation is intended as an early use for this card; and a way to have the card have a small narrative, from the dragons' birth and forming of the horde, to the destruction of the horde by thieveses

    (That's permission, if people are curious)
    Curiously, purple was going to be the color between Blue and Black, so it is actually funny you say you would be White/Green. To me anyways.

    Hi!
    What probably brought me here was mostly because it was reminiscent of the old shippings thread way back when.

    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.

    My only experience with Magic The Gathering was a brief one during the Shards of Alara set. So you all will have to forgive me in advance, as I get the gist of Magic, but don’t have any of the deep wells of experience or knowledge that the rest of you do.

    This is for Amechra, who took the official Wilder class — garbage with grievously unrealized potential — and then realized that potential as the exceptional Brainspark. It’s everything I wanted out of a psionic class. So, here’s to you. You blue-playing monster.

    Granted, and it is wonderful. But it isn't purple.



    And it doesn't use Portal lands.

    Do I count as enough of a regular to get a card? I'm around every now and then for a good long time now.
    My colors would probably be Simic, maybe Temur.
