Mechanics & Terms

Enchantment creatures - Lumehaven is a plane teeming with enchantmental energy just waiting to harnessed by Lumehaven's residents. The Order of Sultai had found a way to use the Bastion of Sun's energy to fuse this enchantment energy with living beings. The result was an ethereal physical being; a dichotomy and a fusion at the same time. The process is very difficult, but the benefits are great. Lumehaven features creatures who also have the enchantment subtype.
Incessant - The enchantment energy can sometimes follow a being's soul into the afterlife. This is the premise behind the new keyword "incessant" which goes on auras with enchant creature. Whenever a nontoken creature dies that is enchanted by an aura with incessant, the aura comes back, but this time attached to a 1/1 colorless spirit token.
Ambience - Ambience is a pseudo-keyword which activates some sort of effect whenever it is enchanted. This allows you to get additional effects on top of whatever bonuses your aura grants!
Aura Swap - Look familiar? Aura swap is a new keyword (aside from being future shifted in Future Sight) which allows you to pay a cost to exchange an aura you control with one in your hand. This allows for a number of crazy interactions.
Replicate - Replicate is a returning keyword which allows the caster to copy the spell as many times as they can or want to pay the replicate cost. The possibilities are as endless as your mana supply.

 Lumehaven is a plane teeming with strange magical properties. The core of its magical prowess is two polar opposites on the plane called Bastions which exude a mysterious magical essence. Residents of Lumehaven possess incredible knowledge of magic due to their exposure and study of these magical entities. They have accomplished amazing progress especially in the field of auramancy. Planeswalkers from all over the multiverse come to Lumehaven to study the strange plane and learn from its most powerful mages.

Two centuries ago Lumehaven was torn in war over the Bastions. Because of the opposing properties of the Bastion of Suns and the Bastion of Moons, those that studied one believed the other to be lesser and devoid of honor. The Empire of Shortule controlled the Bastion of Suns with a tight fist. The Elven kingdom of Arraya believed they had the right to the Bastion as well and war ensued. At the same time the Shortule took acts of genocide against all those that used the Bastion of Moons. The Dwarves, seeing the ensuing war turned against all, believing that the hunger for power turned all to evil, and sought to annihilate all kingdoms who used the Bastions for power. The war went on for over a decade before the Dwarven general, Elek Longbeard, formed an alliance against the Shortule Empire. The remaining survivors formed a peace treaty which allowed "freedom of study" of the Bastions for all. It also erected the Order of Sultai to protect and study the Bastions. Despite the ongoing peace, there is still much tension between those who follow the path of the Bastion of Suns and those who follow the Bastion of Moons. Old wounds have not all healed.

It's about time this set got here Big smile
I like it, it's an interesting set. However, I'm not too fond of Aura swap, but you executed it well. (Just one thing: "The Order of Sultai" Stick out your tongue.)

The Order of Sultai came up long before Khans was even being named. We clearly have as good minds as Wizards, that we both came upon the same name.

Great work on the set Anuttymous! I'm really happy with how this turned out, and I recommend that people check the file out, Anuttymous and I worked together to balance a few things out, and I think this set would be really cool to draft!
