Location: somewhere btwn Achilles and the tortoise
Preferred Pronoun Set:
Bloodtinged Blademaster
Creature — Vampire Samurai
First strike
When you sacrifice Bloodtinged Blademaster, if it didn't have a +1+/1 counter on it, return it to the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it.
Those who seek to study the ways of the bloodthirsty blade need only learn to channel its hunger. In the hands of a master, it draws no blood at all.
2/2

Seems to good. I mean, etb tapped duals all have an upside now, but I don't feel we're ready for this. Tri lands are still considered pretty good.

I designed this for Libe's contest, but it didn't fit the criterion.

Crown of the Five Kings
Legendary Enchantment — Aura
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature has flying, first strike, vigilance, lifelink, and indestructible.
"The realm was shaped like a diamond, with Wyndmoor to the north, Direholm to the south, Renzadorn to the west, and Thelladyne to the east. At the center of these was Gandervell, with its king holding sway over all the other four. But when the hellbeasts invaded from below, the five kingdoms were forced to ally their forces, and became greater than the sum of their parts."
Glory of the Ages, Volume III

That's a wonderful name for a card! I would be really worried about power level, though.

yeah, i only made it red because they're the secondary scry color and green because it's a Wurm, but mechanically it should probably be a 2/2. Still feels green enough to warrant a second color because of things like mystic snake where green helps blue make dudes for doing blue things. can Wurms be smol?

Bookwurm
Creature — Wurm Illusion
Whenever you scry Bookwurm, you may put it onto the battlefield.
2/2

If I make it an Illusion, the 2/2 part doesn't feel so incongruous. You could throw hexproof on there if you're feeling gutsy but it's not necessary.

also hey why the heck hasn't this boi been made yet:

Germinate
Instant
Convoke
Create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token.

like, really, what the heck wizards

If it's a 2/2, it could just be a Bookworm. There are worms in Magic. But that doesn't really have the allure that Bookwurm has.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Goblin Librarian
Creature — Goblin Advisor (U)
After you shuffle your library, you may scry 2.
To outsiders, the place may seem to be a total mess, but to him, every discarded scrap of paper is exactly where it needs to be.
2/2

Probably can't be printed due to it making Mind's Desire take approximately 4-6 business days to resolve, but i still thought it was cute.

Inspired by the card i bumped the Unnatural thread with.
