Design a card with converted mana cost 7 or greater. It can be any type of card, but no cost reduction, zone shuffling (i.e. reanimation) or casting-it-for-free shenanigans are allowed. That's cheating.

Please remember: You're not allowed to vote for yourselves. For further information please look at the CotW Rules.

Conduit of Invention 7 mana symbol
Artifact Rare
Artifact spells you cast have improvise. (Your artifacts can help you cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for 1 mana symbol.)
Whenever you cast an artifact spell, scry X and draw a card, where X is the converted mana cost of that spell.

Quite a few good ones this week. In no particular order:

Mirrorwing Angel, by Fermat:
This card has a great effect on a solid body. The only sad thing is that, even with flash, you can't catch your opponent after they've cast a spell, since the target has already been chosen.

Armor of the Skirsdag, by SirCaelum:
A really powerful equipment, but also quite simple. I love how it plays into the black parasitic theme, and it does enough to feel powerful while also being simple enough to understand just by looking at it. Great design.

Revolting Revel, by Xenagos:
I laughed. A fun design and something I could see in a real un-set.

Exuberant Worldsmith, by theHuw:
A solid ability with the twist of being a mana sink/combo engine? Sign me up! Seems like a really fun card to build around, and I love how the two abilities work together.

Dragonbreak, by 3 of 7:
I've always been a sucker for the Epic spells from Kamigawa. I think this is another nice take on the "Legendary Spell" aspect, creating a lasting effect that triggers on end step.
