    This is one of those cards that exists to give people a puzzle to solve, rather than to be an amazing card. It does that very well and I like it.

    You know what? Let's keep this rolling. A black, green, or white Stoneblood, please.
    Stoneblood Channeler 1GG
    Creature - Dwarf Druid

    This creature comes into play with 2 +1/+1 counters.

    T Remove a +1/+1 counter from Stoneblood Channeler : Add 1
    T Sacrifice Stoneblood Chaneler : If Stoneblood Channeler has no +1/+1 counters on it search your library for a mountain and put it into play untapped. Shuffle your library.

    Aww my card got skipped over :/
    I like the flavor and mechanics of this card but a 2/3 mana dork that gets smaller as it produces mana isn't super strong for 3. I think you could think about reducing the cost of this card.

    This is an odd combination of effects, but I assume it's got something to do with the lore behind it. This really screws over weenie decks, especially white ones where cards like Conclave Tribunal make up a big part of their removal. Against other decks, though, especially control, it's rather weak. I think it works out alright, since the base card is rather weak, so sideboarding can take care of it.

    Wavecrash Elemental 2U
    Creature- Elemental (C)
    When Wavecrash Elemental attacks, if defending player controls an Island, it gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
    It considers land to be an invasion on its rightful domain.
    2/2

    I think this could be a way to do the "Islandhome" mechanic in modern times; instead of making it completely useless unless the opponent controls the land, it just gets a buff if they do have it.

    This is a solid common but might be a little too stat-y. I like the effect though, very much a flavor win.

    It's interesting because it adds to the data set we need to answer the classic question about 1/3's: 'How good does its ability have to be before it's worth running?' It doesn't do much for any given constructed plan. This thing can put in some work in the limited white weenie mirror, but not much more than it would have without the ability. Some multicolor matchups make it more appealing, but I'm not sure how the, 'shininess=cards,' flavor would fit into a set.

    So it's burglar rat but you choose a black card instead of your opponent choosing a card. Unlike brightray, it work better on a mono deck than a multicoloured one as you still have to hit a black card. You do see their hand regardless, which isn't nothing. Takes the sting off if you play it before sideboarding and miss.

    I'd say it's almost a strictly better jackal familiar. The only downside being that it is in green, rather than red, the color of hasty creatures. I'd say it is okay as a common, and can be fairly good in sealed or draft if you're drafting gruul and have a couple of 2CMC hasty creatures.

    It's powerful, but narrow. This might be just the kind of hate-card that standard needs right now though :P

    It has basically nothing to do with Jackal Familiar. You can play Jackal Familiar turn 1 and swing with it turn 2. You can't with this. It's not almost strictly better, it is a completely different card.


    It's good with Somberwald Stag and Glimmerpoint Stag, with Somberwald killing all their 2/3s and bellow and Glimmerpoint exiling all their permanent in their upkeep so they never get to do stuff on their turn. You can also keep them from from doing stuff on your turn if you want.

    It does nothing with any of the other stags.

    It's not a broken card exactly, but it sets a restriction on what stags can do for the rest of magic, and even those two synergies that exist are quite combo-like.
    I'd probably make it a slow blink or restrict it in some other way.


    Chaoswing Chimera - 3UR

    Whenever Chaoswing Chimera attacks, put the top card of your library into your graveyard. Chaoswing Chimera gets +X/+0 where X is that card's converted mana cost.

    I like it! It reminds me of a bad Mindshrieker deck I made around Innistrad. I think that it might be a little safer as a rare, but its a cool design.


    Transcend BW
    Sorcery R
    Each player exiles a card from their hand, the player who exiled the card with the highest converted mana cost among cards exiled this way may put a card from outside the game into their hand.
    Then you life equal to the total converted mana cost of cards exiled this way.

    This is an interesting betting-like game. I have no idea how the power level on it is, though I do like that you benefit no matter who gets the card in the end. If you fill your deck with high CMC cards to take advantage of this, you run the risk of not being able to actually cast those cards.

    It looks like it goes in a flashback-type deck, the sort that mills itself and tutors for spells from the graveyard. That it can't hit players is a big hindrance here since you need to leave mana open and have a target. Plus, unlike with the Surveil deck that Creeping Chill comes from, the Izzet Jump-start deck would get annoyed that this doesn't technically count as casting the spell. Any side-grade to shock is still nice to have for a limited format, though, so in a set with a new self-mill mechanic this should fit right in.

    Interesting card. You can use this to play against instants on your turn, tapping a land down at the end of their turn and then again at the beginning of your turn. Also potentially useful against utility lands. However, it does drop off in effectiveness significantly as the game goes on, since they'll have enough lands that tapping one won't matter much. I think this works out to be alright.

    Is this for a Mario set? I liked this idea when Roborosewater accidentally made something similar, and I still do. I can't think of any special reason why you can't have a giant Living Plane or something, or indeed why the world can't be double-giant... which is probably why they stopped making world enchantments in the first place. It fits perfectly with the symmetrical themes of world enchantments, though, so it's a great example of one if you have to make one.

    I feel like this wants to be RG notUG and you are missing a till the end of the turn on the buff trigger, unless your intention is the buff is forever in which case it should probably be +1/+1 counters. Neat idea for an edh card though.

    I see what type getting to do but it feels really clunky. Doesn't feel that group huggy as even in a 4 player game, unless it's taken out, even if you were passing to target the 4th person, in the time it takes to untap again they're down 3 cards to you and 2 to everyone else. I'd like it more if the token creation was etb and the effect maybe a bit weaker because of it (maybe everyone draws 1 on your upkeep but you scry X where X is the number of players with it).

    Not having haste is a pretty big deal when you're making a new Goblin Guide. A vanilla 2/2 for 1 doesn't even cut it by today's creature quality standards, so this should be fine at uncommon. The coin flip might be annoying to execute in practice, but it won't have a long window where it profitably attacks alone anyway, so it probably won't come up that often?

    Flavorful, but must it be mythic? I could easily see this hate card at rare.

    Harrowed Reaper 3
    Artifact Creature - Scarecrow R
    Damage is dealt to ~ in the form of -1/-1 counters.
    B: Move a -1/-1 counter from ~ to target creature your opponent controls. When that creature dies this turn, exile it, then create a 1/1 colorless Scarecrow artifact creature token with wither and defender.
    0/6

    Make another scarecrow, or another rare with zero power.

    This is a super cool wall, nice job! I think the tokens it makes should be 1/1 that can attack and maybe not have wither but thats a design choice.

    Just curious why did you format the ability that way instead of
    B, Remove a -1/-1 counter from ~ : Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature an opponent controls, when that creature dies this turn exile it and create a 1/1 colorless Scarecrow artifact creature token with wither and defender.

    Make another scarecrow, or another rare with zero power.

    You may have CARDNAME enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield except it is an artifact in addition to its other types and has "At the beginning of your upkeep you may pay 1UBB and discard a card, if you do put a token that is a copy of CARDNAME into the battlefield".

    This is a pretty interesting Clone, one that can really show its worth in the late game when it turns lands into further clones. If I'm reading it correctly, the tokens can choose their own creatures to copy. The only issue might be that when you get a couple clones out, each of a different creature, it might be a bit difficult to track, but it should be alright.

    I took the templating from Eternalize. Simple mechanic: You basically get to cast the creature for cheaper, but it's a 1/1 and a Spirit.

    Not a bad common filler to showcase a very cool new keyword! Has a very natural way to play in practice, too (just put the card down with an indicator), which is nice even if it wouldn't work for tournament play.

    Reckless Immortal 1UR
    Creature - Weird (R)
    Trample, Haste
    You may cast Reckless Immortal from the graveyard. If you do, discard two cards.
    Whenever Reckless Immortal deals damage to a player, draw a card.
    For some definitions of immortal.

    Reckless Immortal can give you so much card advantage. I appreciate that you purposefully made the discard not part of the cost so that you could cast it with an empty hand, but it's strong enough that you didn't need to do that. I think you may have meant for it to be red/black, since black is more about getting creatures back from graveyards and makes sense with the hellbent-ish mechanic.

    It feels like it would fit right in place in a blue tempo deck. It feels like it might be a bit much and then you remember that in the deck, the best thing you can do is run straight into the counter as a 6/6 to not give up tempo and the 3 cost counterspell is fine. I feel it punishes missing a spell too hard though and would like it more as a 4/4 removing 1 counter each time.

    I think it's fairly priced, similar to other hate effects of the category. I think it'd be fairly unique - can't be sacrificed has happened for creatures, and more disruptive effects exist for hosing activated abilities, but never can't be sacrificed for everything. Anyway, my only issue is its flavor - not sure why artifact tokens like Food would be "the meek". It'd make more sense as "creatures can't be sacrificed" but obviously then it doesn't fit the challenge as much - I'd prefer something like a proclamation or decree that bans sacrifice, flavor wise.

    Eidolon of Oblivion WW
    Enchantment Creature Spirit U

    I get the feeling that the bestow cost might need to go up to mirror bestow cards, but the more I think about it the more I wonder why it has bestow in the first place. Non-bestowing enchantment creatures are allowed, and the more attractive enchantment-bombing ability clearly doesn't care about it, so you can probably drop those two lines of text. It goes nicely with Heliod's tokens, and it finally gives a sorta-efficient way to get rid of Hatching Plans.

    You may have Ersatz Ancestor enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature card in an opponent's graveyard except it has flying.

    Look at target opponent's hand. You may choose a creature card from it. That player discards that card.
