    A nice solid elephant that pumps up creatures in particular, thats a good RG. Balanced cost and activated ability, and base stats means it could last though some basic removal.

    I can see what you're trying to do and it seems okay but how you've tried to do it is horrendous. Crewing means a vehicle and needs p/t and I'm pretty sure it falls off one crewed and a variable cost for crewing doesn't work as you can always crew with extra anyway. What you want is:

    Creatures you control have "T: Creature equipped by ~ gains +1/+1 and all of this creatures abilities until end of turn. Activate this ability only when you could cast a sorcery."
    Equip 4
    Equip Elephant 2

    Or something along these lines. Given different things become keywords over time and older cards have it written out (vigilance for example), if there are cards predating an ability being keyworded being played, you don't want to have things get more complicated. Nice idea, poor execution.

    Recycling plant 3
    Artifact U
    Whenever another non-token artifact is put in your graveyard from the battlefield, create a Treasure token.

    Nice, this is another good piece in a kci deck. I think it is probably okay but I do worry a little that for 3 you get a piece that helps with mana and recursion.

    Spare Parts 2
    Legendary Artifact Creature - Construct Monk R
    Whenever an artifact is put into the graveyard from the battlefield put a +1/+1 counter on Spare Parts

    Sacrifice Spare Parts: Add X to your mana pool where X is equal to Spare Parts' power, use this mana only to cast artifact spells.
    "Theres no reason to fight it, the circle of renewal takes each of us in our time."
    1/1

    This might be more of a hardened scales card.

    Make a card that would help a deck thats gotten a card banned or a card with unearth or an enchantment. Bonus points if you can do all of them.

    Seems a little too narrow to me, compare to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. They have set a prescient of allowing green red to have helix effects and I think 4 is the right cost but the color restriction is unnecessary imo. Maybe giving the card an activated ability would round it out?

    Primal Warding was actually modeled somewhat on a version of Leyline of Combustion, with a hexproof defense against civilization and a green effect for life gain when blue counters some of your spells.



    And Proud Conquerer starts off strong, but has a few removal options. Add in the nice discard effect and you can start making the foe lose assets... and transforms nicely into something that fits in nicely with a Blue/Black deck focused on making it so your opponent has nothing to actually do.Overall, a very solid card that transforms into a nightmare.



    Shoes of the North Wind 3
    Snow Artifact- Equipment R
    Equipped creature has +0/+2, Haste and 'When this creature deals combat damage to another creature, tap that creature. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.'

    It can only equip horses? You could easily drop the initial mana cost down to 1 or 0, then. Horse Tribal needs all the help it can get.

    At the beginning of enchanted player's upkeep, that player chooses one that has not been chosen yet:

    This seems like a fine curse if a little slow. You play it then you can't attack with the demon you eventually get until 3 turns after you play it and even then the attack doesn't really matter since they gained 5 life. So you don't swing for real dmg until 4 turns after. Maybe have them discard a card as well? The cycling is kind of nice but I don't see how that plays into the flavor of the card.

    This seems like a mistake. Even if it could only tap for mana I still wouldn't think it was a good idea. I get Rebels are a bit pricey to activate, but that gives you even more reason to want to ramp with them. Giving white access to repeatable ramp doesn't seem safe. This then has a super relevant additional upside on top of that.

    Sadly mercenaries suck. And they've even stopped printing mercenaries and rebels thematically. Luckily you didn't mention anything about it being a mercenary in any rules wise way.

    Seems like a pretty efficient and powerful creature on an aggro deck. It can clear out chump blockers for your other creatures while being tough to take down itself. The only thing is I'm not sure about the black; this feels like it could be mono-red without any issues.

    No feedback for my planeswalker? Sadness that. Though really, should have had the cost be 1(B/W)(W/U) to really sell the accountant idea.


    As it is, Luckrochaun has a lot of flipping , lacks a rarity and a Patty days card feels like there should be some green on general principle. As it is, a solid little card that allows for extra card draw and the means to keep drawing when you win.

    This card is fun, I really like that it has prot green. I think that generating on when either player casts a spell makes it too strong though. This card seems like it would enable long chains of storming off without too much difficulty. The flavor is great tho.

    I don't love the use of coin here, bestow is nice but the tails roll could lead to bad play patterns where your creature can never attack. Also the bestow tests references ~ when it should be talking about the enchanted creature.

    No love for the silver-bordered green die-rolling theme nor for the Eldraine shamrock adventure theme, huh? Ah well. I feel like this shamrock does one thing too many, and I am not 100% on what each function represents that the others couldn’t do sufficiently, but it functions perfectly well as a protection method with extra ramp functionality if your important payload isn’t out yet.

    This spell seems pretty neat, though the fact that it can read "Deal 2 damage to target attacking creature" is a bit weird color-pie wise. I don't think Living Spell can have that much depth, since almost every spell with it is going to have to have "Target creature gets +X/+X until end of turn" or "Put X +1/+1 counters on target creature". You could have some cards without it that have sacrifice synergy, but I just don't see much use in it besides the initial "Oh, that's a neat idea."

    This card is fine, I'm glad it only cares about spells your opponents cast. For it to be too stat-y your opponent needs to cast around 3 spells so they will really have to dig their own grave.

    Goblagon is... not good. The only use I can think of is to trick your opponent into killing it instead of holding up a counterspell, thereby allowing you to play your real threat on turn 3 or so.

    Invisible Sliver's text doesn't mean anything even in silver-bordered land. If that reminder text is meant as a cute way of saying it can't be blocked, it's not coming across as clearly as you might have thought.

    Challenge! Gnome!
    Deathtouch on a cheap-ish colorless creature seems odd to me for some reason, but this seems like a fine card.

    Perpetual Assembler 5
    Creature- Gnome (R)
    At the beginning of your upkeep, tap Perpetual Assembler and each other Gnome you control. Create a 1/1 colorless Gnome artifact creature token for each Gnome tapped this way.

    For 5 generic mana, this is kind of ridiculous. You effectively get exponentially increasing tokens. Maybe just create half as much?

    Creatures with one or more counters on them are legendary.

    Make a card whose name is partially borrowed from the name of any of this thread's posters, or make a card that looks like it gives an opponent some card advantage, but not really. Bonus for both.

    At first I misread the challenge as pushes token decks and your card made me really confused. I was going to say that this focuses tokens down way too hard, but... it kind of doesn't? GMM can play with your own tokens pretty well, if you run a few different types and avoid making too many at once. I kind of like it. My biggest beef is probably that it doesn't feel blue to me - ironically, your anti-token card might fit in better with Selesnya colors.

    Tap an untapped land you control with the same name as a land target opponent controls: Target creature you control can't be blocked by creatures that opponent controls until end of turn.

    So it mostly works with basics, but with this manacost you probably don't want it in a five color deck. I'm guessing it's just a board card for the matchups where it can be relevant. I'm not a huge fan of it, it feels too much like landwalk, and it doesn't even that good to give this conditional unblockable and still have to pay 1 each time.
    Also the wording is slightly off, you can't mention target in the cost. I think I would make it:
    Tap an untapped land you control: Target creature can't be blocked this turn by creatures whose controller controls a land with the same name as the tapped land.

    I thought the arch enemy of the squirrels was Plague Engineer.

    Despicable Hermit - 3BG
    Creature - Elf Druid - R
    When Despicable Hermit enters the battlefield, create four Black and Green 1/1 Zombie Squirrel tokens.
    Zombies you control get +1/+1.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice a creature.
    1/1

    Make another card that's a callback, (this is a callback to Deranged Hermit and Deep Forest Hermit).

    I'm not sure how this is the archenemy of squirrel decks, this is another squirrel card! I think its fine but should maybe sacrifice other creatures and not itself.

    I don't know what this is a reference to. Maybe Sylvan Library? All I know is that I'm never going to remember whether I cast this two turns ago or three.

    This does quite a bit for a common. The 3rd option definitely seems like the most powerful, since 4 is a pretty versatile CMC. You could fetch removal, a good threat, or some powerful planeswalkers with that. The first two are much narrower, but still potentially useful. I think this would be balanced, but it'd be better at uncommon.

    Funny flavor text. This card is drastically underpowered, but it's an almost playable limited card. The name would probably be different outside silver border.
