This is the closest i can think of to getting to actual Black lotus without it being too abusable (i hope).

@SilverSoul.SB: from all attempts, trying to make a lotus concept, i like yours the most. It is indeed not easy to abuse, and is also creative. Although i think, it has to many unnecessery creature types. I'd like him to be just a plant knght.

I also like Ziolangs Flickerbug. It is a strong and hard to anticipate interruption that is dependent on a body-making secondary.

@one1eye1 I would have made it just plant wizard if the art wasn't as knight looking but it was the only flower person I could find.

You need to install the Beleren font for your M15 template. There is a guide on Pichoro's Additional Download page.

@ZephyrPhantom
Sure, I bumped up the rarity.
As for flashback and aftermath I don't think that would work. The ability should only work in the graveyard, and the card shouldn't remember who it was in the graveyard once you put it on the stack.

@Mahx Michael
Exactly. Although the efficiency is not quite draw 8 cards for 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol, since you have to draw four Self-implanted Memories first to get there. And because the card doesn't actually do anything while you cast it, these are essentially "skipped" draws. Still, in a deck that runs a lot of those cards that count copies in a graveyard, it can be useful.

Wanted to use this pun for a while so

Splice onto sorcery Black mana symbol (As you cast a sorcery spell, you may reveal this card from your hand and pay its splice cost. If you do, add this card's effects to that spell.)

@MadLuckKingg it doesn't make a very good commander as it can only enter from your hand, can you change it to "you may Tap 5 untapped slivers you control rather than pay ~ mana cost".
