I really miss mana dorks.

Rotglove Worshipper
Creature — Elf Shaman
, Pay 1 life: Add to your mana pool.
, Sacrifice two creatures: Create a 9/7 Plant Demon creature token.
1/1

Ghalta's Herald
Creature — Elf Shaman
Creature spells you cast with power 5 or greater cost less to cast.
1/1

Voidcaller
Creature — Human Illusion
: Add to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast colorless spells.
1/1

Rotglove Worshiper is just a fun card. It seems a little overpowered at 9/7? Maybe a 6/6? But I do see why you picked numbers higher. I like that it frees up deck building space. You can go ahead and try out some of those cards you've been meaning to try because if they aren't working out or you need something bigger you can just sac them. I'm asuming Rotglove is rare? Or at least a first pick uncommon?

I am very surprised that Voidcaller isn't a think.

Make it 'sacrifice two other creatures', you need someone to perform the ritual

Second guy is like Krosan Drover

Unerring Combatant
Creature — Kor Soldier (R)
Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)
Whenever Unerring Combatant deals combat damage to a player, remove all -1/-1 counters from it.
3/4

Scragnoth Hide Cloak
Enchantment — Aura
Enchant creature
Spell armor (Whenever an opponent casts a spell targeting a permanent this card is targeting while on the stack or enchanting while on the battlefield, counter that spell.)
Enchanted creature gets +3/+3.

I like spell armor, but that reminder text could overwhelm people. Giving the target of the spell armor card hexproof until end of turn would leverage knowledge of hexproof to get the idea across.

Post subject:  Re: Parad's Ponderings

Yeah I posted that mechanic in one of Shaz's contests that way where it just granted hexproof and he said it was whack how a keyword was granting another keyword and I kinda agree with him

Alarak, Highlord of the Tal'darim
Legendary Creature — Protoss Wizard Soldier
First strike
Creatures can't activate abilities that aren't mana abilities.

Dat flavour text.

I thought I'd seen it previously on the forum. Then I looked at the name and realised I must have heard it while playing starcraft 2 or heroes of the storm

Fun fact: Alarak is voiced by John DeLancie, who played Q in Star Trek: TNG

For RWB I feel like it would be more fitting if it only shut down mana abilities instead.
Although it would be really niche.

Sometimes it's because they don't go on the stack, like with Stifle and such (where it's reminder text), the rest of the time it's mostly because it would enable mana denial strategies, which are considered unfun. That's mostly in the cases where it can hit lands though (see Pithing Needle vs. Phyrexian Revoker.)

Selective Cleansing
Sorcery (R)
Choose one or more —
• Destroy all creatures with power 3 or less.
• Destroy all creatures with power 4 or greater.
• Destroy all artifacts.
• Destroy all enchantments.

I would jam that all day long in Oloro control. If it weren't for the fact that it can't remove planeswalkers, I would concerned about the fact that it's otherwise strictly better than Planar Cleansing.

Incense Burner
Creature — Human Shaman (R)
: Add to your mana pool. If that mana is spent on a creature spell, it gains haste. Incense Burner deals 3 damage to you.
The shamans of the Burning-Tree have little patience for those who cannot stomach the smolder of their ancient remedies.
1/1

Cosmic Convergence
Legendary Sorcery (R)
Choose two —
• Create a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying.
• Create a 4/4 blue Wizard creature token with hexproof.
• Create a 4/4 black Demon creature token with menace.
• Create a 4/4 red Giant creature token with first strike.
• Create a 4/4 green Beast creature token with trample.
Entwine (Choose all if you pay the entwine cost.)

I was gonna make this mythic, but apparently 20 points of power for 10 mana is rare these days.

Post subject:  Re: Parad's Ponderings

That's pretty cute, and a good use of entwine, but all those different tokens will be a pain to keep track of.

YOU GUYS I GOT IT

AN ELEGANT AND BALANCED MANA DORK THAT ALLOWS ME TO ATTACK WITH MY PHYREXIAN SLULGORGER ON TURN 2

Tattermunge Troublemaker
Creature — Goblin Rogue Shaman (R)
: Add .
All other creatures have haste.
Gozruk never did fit in with the crowd. Unless that crowd was weilding torches.
1/1

See? It's got a meaningful drawback this time!

Not sure if it's proper wording to have the "All" in there. Concordant Crossroads says yes, Godhead of Awe says no. I played it safe and left it in there.

P.S. I really wish they'd made the wording be "Produce ." instead of "Add ."

Hexagon
Artifact (R)
Curse spells you cast cost less to cast.
At the beginning of your end step, each opponent loses life equal to the number of Curses you control.
