Urn, 4 mana symbolBlue mana symbol for "Draw a card and reveal it" sucks. There is too much disparity between the value you get if you discover an artifact and the value you get if you don't, so that card looks unplayable, even in Limited.

Um, a zero mana Quicksilver Geyser? No.

Why not something like um

Choose one or both--
:: Return target creature to its owner's hand.
:: Return target artifact to its owner's hand.

Also, I don't mean this in a rude way, but I find it hilarious that you somehow went from a card that is literally unplayable to a card that would be an instant four-of in Vintage.

Actually, I do mean it in a rude way. Do you actually consider how the designs you make would actually play before you post them?

@Jacqui: No offense, even WotC screwed up with Jace the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic. Even they had no idea that those two cards would dominate Standard until the entire block of Zendikar rotated out.

Even still, the answer to your question is unknown to me. For most of my sets, I try to come up with effects that are more to a Limited environment. I don't play Vintage so card construction for Vintage is even harder for me.

So the final answer to your question is an 50-50 yes/no. Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

Why do you think I decided to make this set a Community Set? I wanted it to be realized but my construction skills are still very Limited. Why do I have a large number of balance questions in the Wonderful All-Encompassing Card Clinic? I am trying to refine my creation skills.

@fluffy: I will make the changes.

@theHuw: I will make the necessary changes. Odd that you never mentioned anything from the white and blue Baubles, but I will fix them.

@Everyone: Over the past few years, we have seen changes to terminology and shortened them (e.g. dies, exile, etc.). How about we bring in one of our own? "Put into the graveyard from the battlefield" = breaks?

For instance, . . .

Shadowspire Bauble A 2/B hybrid mana symbol.
Artifact Common
A 2/B hybrid mana symbol., Tap symbol, Sacrifice ~: Target opponent loses 3 life.
When ~ breaks, you may pay A 2/B hybrid mana symbol.. If you do, draw a card.

Something to think about.

@Yoshi: Awesome work, Yoshi! Those look great. One nit pick; an artifact that is not an equipment and yet has an equip cost? I know you probably forgot to write that in, but it's okay. Either still, the name of Naxurb is interesting. Care to elaborate on the name? Is this the name of the plane you are proposing or something else?

@Neottolemo: Manasmog Skunk looks good. When I first read it, I thought "this is an uncommon card" then I saw the craze cost; it made more sense to have this at common.

@AnthemHero: Some balance issues I noticed:

Corebreak Bauble is way too strong. Land destruction should not cost Red mana symbolRed mana symbol or cantrip for Red mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol, given existing cards like Craterize. Tbh I'd go for a different effect; perhaps artifact destruction?

Highland Rampant is too weak, being a strictly worse version of Canyon Minotaur. Could probably just do with costing 1 mana symbol less.

Hysteric Strike is also very weak. Compare Mugging which deals one more damage and has the craze effect for 2 mana symbol less and not discarding a card. Perhaps if Hysteric Strike dealt more damage/the craze cost was lower?

Burning Battleground is also too strong. Lands probably shouldn't be able to be used as such powerful removal, and stapling a one mana effect (Prey Upon) on a land is probably a no-no.

Why do they have a Shaman? Also, pingers that can get creatures are typically Uncommon and above nowadays for board complexity reasons.
Redchain Rager is interesting. I'd say that if we want Goblin Piker as a baseline then this is too strong and Highland Rampart is fine. However, if we want Falkenrath Reaver as a baseline, then this is just fine and Highland Rampart might be too weak.

Maybe a 2/1 with haste that attacks each turn if able?

February 2018 - DDH - "Remember that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer."

I stand with the specimen.

@Yoshi: I guess that can temper it down a bit. Put it into a range between Goblin Piker and Falkenrath Reaver. Sounds like we have an area to set it.

The Red Skeleton is filling up nicely but I do know that Christmas and the other winter holidays are on everybody's mind. I hope you all enjoy your holiday respectively!

90% of the time, I'm wrong. The other 110%, I'm right.

2/2

That will go into the skeleton.

@everyone: Here is a story blurb that I had written a while back during the early stages of the brainstorm. What do you guys think?

Possible Prologue
In a lonely corner of the Multiverse laid the plane of Keliosa. While resembling that of the war-like Earth, Keliosa is clinging on to life. Cities laid bare after a horrible war that pitted brothers against each other. No one knows what was the cause of the war but many look to the meteor that crashed into the barren lands of Ogrun thirty years ago. Countless nations wanted to study the meteor and its effects to hopefully turn it into new technologies and weapons. Over time, the bitterness between nations grew and the powder keg was ready to blow.

Thirty years later, with less than a million souls on Keliosa remain, things looked grim. However, something began to stir and the cities that were once filled with life were now beginning to rebuild. The city of New Dacad would take the longest to rebuild since it is still the largest city on the entire plane.

And in the ashes of a world after disaster, a new battle begins. Not for power, but for survival and only a few will survive the coming days.

90% of the time, I'm wrong. The other 110%, I'm right.

Again, I wrote this near the start of the community brainstorm.

@fluffy: Whereabouts did I imply the war ended thirty years ago? I thought at least what I tried to imply is that the war occurred between the appearance of the meteor and the current day. Care to help me get the across?

Again, I am willing to change this "possible prologue." Maybe we can collectively construct a decent backstory for everything.

90% of the time, I'm wrong. The other 110%, I'm right.
