@Mahx: Ok, 1 mana symbolRed mana symbolGreen mana symbol mana cost & 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolGreen mana symbol, Tap symbol activation cost it is, then. I'll change it in original post. Also, I can't believe I didn't notice this earlier, but your entry is missing a word. Replacement effects in magic require a "would" in order to work; just look at the Words cycle from Onslaught (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&set=+["Onslaught"]&name=+["words%20of"]). New wording should be:

Whenever you would scry, draw that many cards instead.

@Fermat: It feels like you could either reduce mana cost by 2 mana symbol or Green mana symbol, or increase p/t by at least 2/2, possibly 2/3, 3/2, or mebbe even 3/3.

This thread is now closed, the poll can be found here.

And here's the next challenge!

As Photobucket wants me to pay 400$/year to link to my images, I'll relocate all renders.
