    This is actually something I could see Wizards printing in an unset. Albeit with a higher mana cost, mind you. That said two creatures on a single card, that you would have to block each individually? The main question is what would happen if one of them was killed; would the other die as well?

    So, thr basic concept looks good, but I have some concerns regarding practicality. If this is used on a sufficiently crowded board, the game can be brought to a halt as the player has to flip a coin for each card. Could it perhaps be condensed down into one flip, so that it causes either a small or large explosion?

    Edit: I didn't mean for it to need to be the one shuffled back, change the wording to card named ~.

    It is barely functional because there's no way to know if any Stroke of Luck card you draw was the right Stroke of Luck object, if it retains that property as the object at all, so it only works right if you have exactly one in your deck. It needs something like using the term "a card named X", or a rules text that limits this to one per deck.

    I keep reading this as, 'Arachnoknight,' and being disappointed that it's not a spider. Also I don't think it's blue at all? The activated ability is an expensive edition of the Kolaghan Dash mechanic, and blue doesn't care about knights outside of Eldraine or first strike outside of pirates.

    A little cheeky, but I like it. My question for you is this, though... Why would you ever use this over a standard dual-color land, or even a gate? It only gives the same amount of mana, the same number of options, but spaces them out and gives you less control.

    I'm very glad you're asking that because I was worried it would have the opposite problem. It enters untapped and lets you pick the color you need right away without having to set up or pay anything! That's sometimes enough on its own, isn't it? Plus, unlike Crumbling Vestige, it still fixes your mana at least half the time afterwards, more so if you can plan your tap sequence based on what you might draw.

    (Also, I probably need to change the transform to be part of the cost. I think being a mana ability makes it act really weird otherwise.)

    Edit: Ninja'ed
    Because it doesn't enter the battlefield tapped and that's kind of a big deal. In 2 colour decks, I'd almost always run it over gates and I'd be very tempted to run it over scrylands in aggro. I doubt I'd use it over shocklands, checklands (maybe for very specific aggro decks with minimal colour weight and some hybrid mana) or fetchlands but it'd be a staple in 2 coloured standard decks.

    Seems too oppressive until you see that it's not limited to creatures your opponent controls so it might be okay. If you can give it hexproof, it gets nasty in a bogles deck.

    Legendary lands aren't used anymore; lands are meant to provide needed resources over time; having them be hard to draw or dead in your hand is a problem even when they are this overpowered. It's interesting in a fair-play weenie deck, but you made it legendary because you already know it's only going to be used for infinite combos and/or to play your entire hand on turn 2.

    I think having legendary lands is good design. Inherently the cost of running powerful lands is less because they are often harder to interact with and cost nothing to play. I think if things like field of the dead were legendary it would be a lot fairer. Having some be dead in hand is the cost of playing more powerful cards and I think promotes thought being put into deck building.

    Not as much as you might think. If you have a land like this that's just a straight upgrade from its basic counterpart, you can just throw a copy of it in your deck and that's the end of it. You don't have to worry about drawing it redundantly with only one copy, and your deck improves just because you happen to have it in your collection. There's no reason not to use it if you have it. If you do want to make a legendary land, it should do something unique and carve out its own niche away from the basics (like Eye Of Ugin or Dark Depths) or carry extra requirements that make running basic lands more useful in some situations (like Sanctum Of The Sun; you have to run five colors to use it, so it's not something you'd just throw in any old deck).

    Is the sarlacc pit legendary? Aren't there more than one Sarlacc?
    Exiling a creature you control is a big price for a land, the pay off would need to be decent.

    This is interesting! In constructed, it doesn't take much setup to blow away your opponent's hand and flood the board with mana sinks. That might be fine, but it feels like a big enough splash to be worth five or six mana. The madness cost plays well into the deck that sets it up, and the steep discount leads to interesting decisions; it won't work unless you discard a bunch of other stuff first. It stacks with investigate as well as the graveyard, which makes it way better in limited, which is cool. I'm mostly worried about the balance point for the cost. And the name, as far as that goes. You're gathering clues from your team's corpses, but all your clues drive your opponent mad, and somehow this adds up to echoes at midnight?

    Neat, this seems crazy good with fetch lands but otherwise is balanced. I think for it to be good value you need to get 2-3 tresures which should be enough of a challenge for the card to be okay while not being absolute bonkers.

    This could be quite good in commander, where it wouldn't be too uncommon to pop this after two turn cycles or even one, if you get lucky. In a two player format, though, this would be tricky against most decks except things like creatureless control, and those decks probably have ways to get rid of this.

    It's kinda rare to have tokens in a set that can only be produced by a single card in that set, and if there are other cards that make that token... that would be almost as odd. Otherwise, great design!

    It's excessive alright! The huge cost is obviously intended. I'm actually worried more about how little it does once it does come out. The big Escape titans from that one Theros set give you the same power and toughness, an enters-the-battlefield effect worth about as much as those keywords, and a way to get themselves into the graveyard and generate value as early as turn 2. Plus, you can actually win the game with them! Your guy has a ways to go before he can compete with all of that.

    Very strong but not too far. Less abilities and player survivability than baneslayer angel but a bit harder to get rid of, at a cost. The fact that I'm comparing it to baneslayer angel gives an idea of the high power bracket it's in though.

    Feels very goblin-y. This could be a big blowout if you get out a huge creature, or one with some powerful "on attack" effects. If you're doing it right, the downside won't even matter all that much. I think this might just be strong enough to warrant an extra mana.

    Guard Duty puts “gains defender” at 1 mana. Comparing Arrest to Pacifism gives “loses abilities” at 1 mana. Putting those together, and the fact that +0/+3 is freaking brutal to give to your opponent in limited, I think that the toughness boost could be dropped.

    Pop or Lock is pretty straightforward. It's fine. Destroying artifacts and freezing creatures are popular split card options for a reason.

    One Foot in the Grave - 2B
    Enchantment - Aura C
    Enchant Creature
    When this enchantment enters the battlefield, return up to one target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.
    Enchanted creature gets -2/-2.

    Challenge! ETB effects on noncreature permanents!

    Dead Weight + Raise Dead. Seems like a fine 3 mana spell. Nice job.

    Opulence 2BB
    [a shadowy ruler holds a stunning scepter while sitting on a raised thrown, below people offer gifts]
    Legendary Artifact MR
    Echo 3BB
    At the beginning of your upkeep you may pay 2B, if you do exile ~ then return it to the battlefield.
    When ~ enters the battlefield each opponent loses 2 life and you gain life equal the to life lost this way.
    T:Each opponent exiles a card from their hand. You may cast those cards for as long as they remain in exile and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast them. Activate this ability only if ~'s Echo cost has been paid.


    Next make a card that is card disadvantage.

    I dunno. I feel it's trying to do a lot of different things all at once, which is fine if there's a solid mechanical interpretation of the theme. Abilities 1 and 4 work together, as do 2 and 3. But aside from upkeep triggers, the 2 sets of effects don't really mesh well and are just two distinct flavors of opulence. Really, you'll be getting this just for ability 4.

    Ancestral Mix-up U

    Target player draws three cards, then shuffles four cards from their hand into their library.

    How worse is this than Brainstorm?

    Make a card that is a reference to another boon card (i.e. lightning bolt, dark ritual, giant growth, or healing salve)

    The weirdest part of this card is that it's not really bad. There is a kind of deck that holds onto a full hand for most of the game, and this would support it in concert with recent sets' card-drawing synergy themes. Most decks don't really want this, but there might be just enough that do, which is exactly what a design should go for, I think.

    This seems broken. I realize that the need of a creature to target is a major drawback, and that three mana for two isn't too bad, but I still think it's a mistake to have something like this in, say, Legacy: Turn one DRS into turn 2 Giant Ritual is five mana, which is a little ahead of where I feel like things should be. That said, it's a clever design and I think it could be decent if went a little further. Maybe add in Healing Salve as well?

    This is an amazing uncard, I especially appreciate the flavor text!

    Karn, Urza's Legacy 3
    Planeswalker - Karn R
    [7]: Put 5 loyalty counters on Karn, Urza's Legacy.
    -1: Search your library for a Urza's Mine, Urza's Tower, or Urza's Power plant land and put it into your hand then shuffle your library.
    -7: Search your library for a non-creature artifact and put it onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.
    3


    Next make a non-creature artifact or a card that does damage to you, or a card that erases mistakes. Bonus points if the card beats up on tron.

    These are three very interesting ideas, and theoretically I like how they all fit together into a good ol' Urzatron. The actual use it would get is probably as a 10-mana Win The Game Immediately card, which is significantly crustier. It might just be a matter of tweaking numbers to make the concept fit together without going off all at once too easily.

    Primeval Fountain - 1G
    The city surrounding this huge fountain is now an overgrown jungle.
    Artifact - R
    At the beginning of each player's upkeep, for each nonbasic land that player controls, that player sacrifices it unless they pay 2 life. If it's sacrificed this way, its controller creates a basic Forest land token.
    Built to erase mankind's mistakes.

    Challenge! Make a blue creature that costs 1 mana to cast and that has an activated ability that doesn't cause it to tap.
