I think Pitch cards could be kind of fun.

How about a Quicken-style card:
Spontaneous Fabrication 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Instant Red mana symbol
You may exile a colorless artifact card from your hand rather than pay Spontaneous Fabrication's casting cost.
The next artifact spell you play can be cast as though it had flash.
One second, the horror was about to devour Venser, the next, it was impaled on his golem's spear.

I like Rewind-style spells, but have they been featured in any other color?

@Ayxmirdyrer - Isn't that little too weak?

Rewind styled free spell have... Never been featured in other color. But it is possible. I will prepare example...

Huh. Mental Misstep isn't going to be if NPH is gone.

I guess it is fine to try something stupid.

Pitch Card
Objection 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Instant Uncommon
You may exile an artifact card from your hand rather than pay Objection's mana cost.
Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it into its owner's hand instead of into that player's graveyard.

Off color counter, exactly same position as Mental Misstep, but different in other way. Maybe needed to be bit more weaker.

Off Colored
Well, those are just example.

Persuasion 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Enchantment - Aura Uncommon
Enchant creature
When Persuasion enters the battlefield, you may choose each opponent to gain 4 life. If you do, you may untap up to three lands.
Enchanted creature can’t attack or block.

Kill 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Instant Uncommon
Destroy target creature. Then you may discard a card to untap up to four lands.

Cinder Fire 2 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Instant Uncommon
Cinder Fire deals 3 damage to target creature or player. Add 2 mana symbolRed mana symbol to your mana pool.

Green can just untap lands without any penalty (Since it is it's own color.)

And for blue... Let's apply Metalcraft.

Objection should cantrip

I know Spontaneous Fabrication feels weak, it's also deliberately overcosted, just like Force of Will, still playing around with the concept.

Spontaneous Fabrication 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Instant Red mana symbol
You may exile a colorless artifact card from your hand, rather than pay Spontaneous Fabrication's cost.
The next artifact spell you play can be cast as though it had flash. If you exiled a card this way, it costs X mana symbol less to cast, where X is the exiled card's converted mana cost.
One second, the horror was about to devour Venser, the next, it was impaled on his golem's spear.

I think if you want to do a Blue mana symbol free and do metalcraft, why not untap the lands iff you have metalcraft?
(iff means "If and only if," for those who don't know.)

Sorry for sidetracking, but as mathematical student I'm a little interested if this "iff" is used in "normal" english or more or less a mathematical phrase (since I know this sentence so well Winking smiley ).

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

I haven't heard it used in "normal" English, then again, I am a computer science student, so I don't know a lot of "normal" people.

That was what I meant.

Rewind v2 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Instant Uncommon
Counter target spell.
Metalcraft - If you control three or more artifact, untap three lands.

But this position is exactly same as Stoic Rebuttal. So no counter with Metalcraft Freespell.

Maybe untap 1 more land then its cost?

Objection not being cantrip is because being cantrip would pretty much cancel out it's penalty.

And making Memory Lapse into Artifact Pitch is obviously powerful then Force of Will. I think Objection is okay in balancing perspective.

Finally, the site is fixed...

I really don't think we need to make a cycle out of pitch cards or alternate "free" cards. Not sure if the setting really calls for it. Objection especially makes it too easy for any color to have a free counter. That is much better than Mental Misstep as well.

I like the idea of Gaurdpost but I think it will be much too good. I would like to see some other ideas maybe? But it might be too much to try and fit another locus in this block.

Vapor Orb is good. Solar Orb is probably too good. Think about how monocolored decks could use this. 8-10 mana on turn four for any mono colored deck is power.

I would still like to finish but I cannot do much at the moment with this project.

I am still interested in this project, just kind of been on an idea dry spell.
Low-Flying Drake 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature - Drake Blue mana symbol
Flying
Low-Flying Drake can block only creatures with flying.
Metalcraft - If you control three or more artifacts, Low-Flying Drake can be blocked only by creatures without flying.
2/2

Kind of an interesting idea.

Honestly, it is quite confusing. I had to read it like four times to get it. The metalcraft is not neccessarily better than without. Not sure if that is a good thing to pursue or not.

Well, the idea is that reach suddenly matters, the strangeness is why I made it uncommon. Though I am not sure myself if it is a good idea. The inspiration was Orchard Spirit with its pseudo flying ability.

Low-Flying Drake really seems underpowered. Yes, it's hard to block if you have Metalcraft, but other 2/2 creatures are even harder to block and cost less.

My colors: Freedom (Red mana symbol) through Knowledge (Blue mana symbol) and Organization (White mana symbol).

Let's change that Drake a bit.

Skywire Drake 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature - Drake Uncommon
Flying
Metalcraft - If you control three or more artifacts, prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to Skywire Drake when it’s not your turn.
2/3

Based on Orbis Renaissance 'Celestial Translator' design. I think this can work... Depending on what kind of flavor we can give.

Hi i am interested in looking at this set but it seems the file was invalid or deleted. Guitarsweeps, could you repost it?

Try this. Unfortunately, I had some major RL distractions come up and destroy the momentum of this project. It is now quite late to pick it up and try to make it what it was supposed to be which was a mirror of New Phyrexia. If I decide to revisit this project it will probably turn into revisiting Phyrexia.
