    This is a very good boy! For a zoo deck, it's lots of power for low cost, but I think Soulbond is a decent drawback.

    Love that it brings good boys back from the dead! That said, I think it might be too dog focused if you know what I mean? I know that many PWs are specifically focused on a type, but think they work better if only one ability refers to the type directly and the rest just play well with that type. The issue, of course, what playstyle are Dogs generally?

    Create a Food token. Until end of turn, whenever you gain 3 or more life, put that much +1/+1 counters on target Dog you control.
    So if you spend 3GW, you get 3 life and a dog gets +3/+3? That's quite a combat trick!

    It's like a reverse hunted creature! Unfortunately I think it's too strong - it's essentially 9 power for 5 mana since it's hard for opponent to get rid of the mail man. Even if they do, you have 6 power for 5 mana and they needed to spend a card and tempo to get rid of the mailman.

    Whenever you cast a Non-creature spell, manifest the top card of your library.
    Whenever you manifest a card, create an aura enchantment token attached to it. It has " enchant permanent, Totem Armor, and "if enchanted permanent is a creature, it gets +1/+1 and is a Dog""
    (2/g)(2/g)(2/g)(2/g): Dogs you control gain hexproof, trample, and "when this creature deals damage to a player, draw a card for each attacking dog" until end of turn.

    Whenever a player casts a spell from their hand, they mill 3, then exile cards from their library until they reveal a nonland card. If the revealed card has a higher mana value, counter that spell and Izzzet Improvement does 3 damage to that player. That player may then cast the exiled card without paying its mana cost.

    If this spell is the first spell you've cast this game, you may cast it without paying its mana cost.
    Destroy target creature

    Once upon a time was free if it was played first because it was the start of many tales. Going for the same sort of thing here. Great for sniping a T1 creature on the draw. Not good on play but can smooth out a slower hand. Could find a home in cascade decks.

    This card is very strong, especially for its cost. It is interesting enough to consider anyway, though, requiring that you build your deck around it before it gets oppressive, and once the metagame catches up your opponent will see it coming from a mile away. I suspect its biggest limiting factor to be that it's competing with Delve cards, but in a 60-card format you don't need them and in a 100-card format you don't care.

    I really like how the question in the card's name is asked about halfway through the card's text. It's interesting how your opponent usually gets the first trigger of the ability, but most decks aren't built to get a good deal out of it, so you're probably safe anyway. The chaos that ensues would probably entail that it get a high cost despite not being super strong.

    It's interesting that, in the end, the creature still escapes the tap-down before the golem does. Pun requirement notwithstanding, I'd argue the food-protection ability is much funnier than the flavor text.

    This is probably too expensive, and feels more red than blue unless you're deliberately referencing cards from the '90s. Also, I think you forgot to make it turn non-artifact creatures into artifacts? Like, we're all mentally inserting that line, and it'd be easy to add, but the rules lawyer in me is still obsessing over the way it removes itself as-is.

    This feels like one of those mechanics that they would test out in an Un- set first, just to see how it plays intuitively. It's also a very cool! It's a cost that's usually easy enough to pay, still feels like a lot, and makes your opponent feel clever in the rare case it backfires. I feel like you'd go up against a no-creature control deck and taunt them, asking why they don't have any challengers.

    You may have Tiger, Lord of the Tain enter the battlefield as a copy of any non-Fish creature an opponent controls, except it is a Legendary Cat Reflection in addition to its other types and has "creatures you control enter the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter for each permanent you don't control that they share a name with."
    7/0
    My main issue is that this would be very awkward to use and build a deck around. The zero toughness means you can almost never play it as itself rather than a copy of your opponent's creature, and even if you do, the seven power is restrained by the defender ability, so you can't use it offensively. Also, there is no given that your opponent will be running a creature heavy deck or one that runs multiples of any given creature, so the best way to make this car work is have a deck based on giving your opponent creatures.

    I honestly don't know what to make of this. A commander that can merge a faerie and a forest into forest copy of an opponent's creature that can kill it's counterpart? At the very least it appears to be appropriately costed.

    So a forest that can tap for G or one of any color, and can be used a green pacify with the downside of that creature gaining the mana ability. if i'm reading this right it also ceases to bel a land and lose the ability to tap for mana as well.

    Once upon a time was free if it was played first because it was the start of many tales. Going for the same sort of thing here. Great for sniping a T1 creature on the draw. Not good on play but can smooth out a slower hand. Could find a home in cascade decks.
    I thought I was supposed to do the judging? Honestly, This should either be an instant or reduced to 3 mana to play.
    Otherwise, I just cannot see it being played all that often.

    This card is very strong, especially for its cost. It is interesting enough to consider anyway, though, requiring that you build your deck around it before it gets oppressive, and once the metagame catches up your opponent will see it coming from a mile away. I suspect its biggest limiting factor to be that it's competing with Delve cards, but in a 60-card format you don't need them and in a 100-card format you don't care.


    Spoiler: Is It / Izzet
    Show


    I really like how the question in the card's name is asked about halfway through the card's text. It's interesting how your opponent usually gets the first trigger of the ability, but most decks aren't built to get a good deal out of it, so you're probably safe anyway. The chaos that ensues would probably entail that it get a high cost despite not being super strong.


    Spoiler: Ambulating / Operating

    It's interesting that, in the end, the creature still escapes the tap-down before the golem does. Pun requirement notwithstanding, I'd argue the food-protection ability is much funnier than the flavor text.


    Spoiler: Saint / Weapon
    Show


    This is probably too expensive, and feels more red than blue unless you're deliberately referencing cards from the '90s. Also, I think you forgot to make it turn non-artifact creatures into artifacts? Like, we're all mentally inserting that line, and it'd be easy to add, but the rules lawyer in me is still obsessing over the way it removes itself as-is.

    This feels like one of those mechanics that they would test out in an Un- set first, just to see how it plays intuitively. It's also a very cool! It's a cost that's usually easy enough to pay, still feels like a lot, and makes your opponent feel clever in the rare case it backfires. I feel like you'd go up against a no-creature control deck and taunt them, asking why they don't have any challengers.

    Glad you liked it. I wanted to make a really modal Saga. You can use it for early ramp and forget the card draw, as a knockoff Ancestral Vision, or as lategame treasure payoff.

    For the next challenge, Make a card that creates a new Role, or does something new with Roles.

    This is a really good role. Battle Cry and Goad make this a good way to make your opponents fight, but it will come back to bite you when the game becomes a 1v1. Retrace is a little random, but I get why it's there. I think it's a bit overcosted, and I'm not sure if should be castable with just black, but it's a great Role.

    I think you went with the right version here. I like the Role as a way of animating a land, because it gives you a marker to avoid the usual memory issues with animating lands. It's not very strong, but I think that's ok at common, but could be pushed a bit more. It's a different thing, and I like it.

    I like these cards that are variants of an effect that's been printed many times, but with a set-specific twist to make them new. This is great balance and cost. It's not a huge departure from other Role cards.

    Another Role-based variant on a common type of card, I like that. I like the Traitor role as another negative role. Good cost, and I like how it has a lasting effect that's good for the sort of aggressive deck that would play it. I always feel bad using these sort of card without a sacrifice outlet, but this deals with that. My only real complaint is that it should probably be uncommon.

    Dead is a complicated effect. I'm not sure the first line works as written, but I know what you mean. A "Dead" creature still has static and triggered abilities, so you might want to target your own creature sometimes. It can also be sacrificed or freed by enchantment removal. I think it's costed alright, Flash might be too good at uncommon. Definitely a new effect for a Role.
