Alternate England of woodland and magicians. Colours and rarities approximately balanced, but there remain many anomalies, and all major mechanics remain untested for rules issues and balance.

Going to remove minor gravetrigger. If white gets 2/3 bonus for WW, is 1W 2/3 "whenever a creature deals damage to this..." reasonable at common?

On Fleshform Leviathan (reply):
on 9 Feb 2011 by Jack V:

I know trample isn't white, but the leviathan flavour feels right. Can I justify this?

On Drift Of Blossoms (reply):
on 9 Feb 2011 by Jack V:

I like the flavour but I think the ability is too complicated. How should it read?

On Blessed Ghost (reply):
on 9 Feb 2011 by Jack V:

Shall I add "exile it" clause so people can keep the creature card under blessed ghost as a reminder? OTOH, then it would feel more like "... return it to play"

Chris; Are you sure? Can you choose to sacrifice it even though it can't leave play? If it said "you can't sacrifice this" I assume you can't (compare Tajuru Preserver), and if it said "if this would leave play, instead it doesn't", then you can, but is it clear with the current wording?

Slightly better than cancel. Is this ok? Scars metalcraft counterspell is slightly better too, so probably not too strong, but would it be more natural if the counterspell was conditional somehow?

I think the card was originally 0/0 and could stick around if you had a way of improving it, but I decided 0/1 was simpler and better.

Playtest shows repeatable scry being unsurprisingly very very useful. OTOH, if you can repeatably attack in the air, you're probably being successful anyway. Too strong?

And indeed a long time ago that Multiverse first came online. Sienira's Facets, Gentlemen Magicians and Multiverse all happened in summer-autumn 2010, didn't they?

Oh, awesome! Thank you.

Wow, it was a long time ago I first made these...

Not only was the masked miaicagn fatter than the genuine one but the narrator was the big give away in his annoyed and very impatient tone of voice when he explains how the trick was done. The lady may have been beautiful like they always are in the masked miaicagns clips, but her dancing was way too provocative for high quality magic of the real masked miaicagn. The explanation of how it worked made no sense at all ==

You know, I do find this intriguing. The doesn't untap thing looks like a control method for a minor splash, but I think the card reads better if it was simply a basic land that turned into another basic land once a number of lands was hit. Like SU mentioned, 6 may be too high. But, really, any number under that seems fair game.

Not sure what's going on about the colors, but if it isn't "in addition to its other types", it's better than a Plains. If it's like it reads, it seems too random. You want nonbasics (okay, some) to fix your mana. By the time you have six lands, this is totally irrelevant in a regular land.

If I want black or red, I'll just use the latest BR land. Even in a WBR deck, I'll probably want something else.

Talk about pushing creatures. This on turn one is at the very least a free Divination (that requires you to give up a land drop) for any color. More often, though, it will be a free Concentrate which is downright broken.

­Jace Beleren cost three and it was a fantastic card if you just used the -1 until he died.

In Magic: the Gatherese, "Run Away" is translated as "Ach Hans, Run!"

I'm torn between this and a version of Chattan Sparrowhawk that says "Flying, first strike, can't block creatures with flying." Both have the "sail overhead unhurt, then SWOOP on prey" feel for different reasons.

I definitely want at least two birds, so I guess this is in (as its simpler) and I'll rework Chattan Sparrowhawk, probably making it cost 1W?

On Alarm Rabbit:
on 2012-01-14 00:13:25 by Jack V:

Huh. Village Bell-Ringer says this is spot-on. I'm never sure whether to be pleased or annoyed when I discover I've designed a card that wizards later comes out with :)

On Grizzled Wolf:

Testing "wolf ability" as "{2} or {t}:" instead of "{2}:".
