Name Hesitation is taken.
All creatures get -2/-0? Good old Marsh Gas. If you can smell it, it's too late.
Heh. Fair enough then.
Truth was I didn't know what to do for the ub land in the cycle.
Hmm. There is precedent for this effect: Magewright's Stone. This is obviously a lot more expensive, but it's a) repeatable and b) doesn't take up a deck slot. So I guess the cost seems about right (although perhaps or would be more natural than ).
Also replace "shuffle ~" with "shuffle ~ from your graveyard", because otherwise it's not clear whether it applies from the stack or the graveyard.
"As an additional cost to cast ~, sacrifice a creature.
Distribute X +1/+1 counters among any number of target creatures, where X is the sacrificed creature's toughness.
Whenever a land card is put into your graveyard, you may shuffle ~ into your library. OR Whenever a land you control is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may shuffle ~ into your library."
In the first case, the last ability triggers no matter where the land comes from. In the second, it only triggers when one of your lands dies.
Nice. That's one way of dealing with them.
Yow. I was expecting the other pile to get some kind of bad thing happen to them, but no - unblockable.
I do like the solomon mechanic though. More cards should do it.
Oh, interesting idea. Would it be more interesting if the second ability was something different to flying, rather than just better?
