Creature - Human Wizard Rare
Forests you control are Islands in addition to their other types.
Why not both?

I believe this qualifies. For some reason, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the challenge. Must be tired.

@Fermat: Why only sorceries? You can't give a Tarfire wither with this, which feels wrong.

@huw: Battle cry that doesn't require you to attack? Okay, I guess... not very exciting, and I don't know why you'd pick the +0/+1 mode usually.

@Pixi-Rex: And here I was thinking that Crow Storm getting printed would kill this stupid meme.

@Inverness: I see nothing Blue mana symbol about this. I also find it bizarre that the card picks a target at random, solely to avoid interaction with the keyword you just made up. Just make it kicker, d00d.

@Touhoufanatic: I really, really hate token equipment as a concept, but ignoring that the wording is off. "Whenever a Samurai or Warrior creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay (cost). If you do, create a colorless Equipment artifact token named Katana with "Equipped creature gets +1/+1" and "Equip 1 mana symbol". Or something like that. No "would"-- this isn't a replacement effect.

"It's exciting to create something that demonstrates how clever you are, that you pushed in a direction that players didn't anticipate. The problem is that the point of game design isn't to be clever, it's to create a great game."

The successor, in terms of flavour, to Lantern Spirit and Geist of the Moors, Geist of Forewarning will protect your creatures from dangers - but only ones that she has faced herself.

@touhoufanatic: please use more capital letters in your cards thx. they give them more a e s t h e t i c effect.

I just dont understand why people pay thousands for a piece of cardboard.
Why just don't play some casual? Gee, it isn't even fun to play with, and especially against.

@Angelic_Bovines I like the concept, but the wording on the last ability feels confusing even though it is an appropriate way to word it. Maybe say "Prevent all damage that would be dealt to creatures you control by sources with names noted with ~." It's the same effect, but feels easier to understand.

I swear I have a life. Just not right now.

Finally got an actual entry up, was a pain in the rear to find art for it and I'm still not happy but hey, after a certain point there's only so much DeviantArt one can subject themselves to nowadays.

Remember, Flavor can be used to justify any number of terrible designs.

Is it bad that my first thought when seeing this card was tide pods?

"Each bite was a perilous adventure."
