I've decided that I may as well collect all my ICD threads into one. No sense clogging up the board when I feel creative. Plus, now I have everything on hand. But the real winner here is you- the people, because now you have all of my genius on hand too. No need to thank me. I already know.

From now on, I'll be putting new designs in this thread instead of starting new threads.

Installment the 41st

Trade Post
Land - Station
~ enters the battlefield tapped.
As ~ enters the battlefield, choose a color.
Station lands you control have, ": Add one mana of the chosen color to your mana pool."

I thought about making it a Market land, but Station has gained some traction as the Jakkardian go to.


Orientation Atlas
Artifact
: Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a land card. Put that card on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.


Double Or Nothing
Choose target instant or sorcery spell. That spell's controller chooses one for you:
*Counter that spell.
*Copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

EDIT- version 2
Double Or Nothing
Target instant or sorcery spell's controller may have you counter it. If they don't, copy it. You may choose new targets for the copy.

A statistic says that wacky red cards with three word titles have good odds of winning card of the year. I was feeling good about this one until I remembered Split Decision exists.
At RR I think I might be able to make the second option, "Copy that spell Twice". Then it would have to be "Double Or Nothing".

Isn't the current version already a "double," and your proposed alteration a "triple"?

If you changed the name to Double or Nothing, I'd nominate it for CotW.

Trouble or Nothing Is no more. It is now Double.
The thinking was your opponent would get there spell countered, and thus have nothing, or have a copy sent back at them- trouble. But when it works either way, it's usually best to play it straight and save the derivative pun for a derivative version in the future.

Not my card, but a reworking of one, so I'll put it up here:
Overpowering Explosion
Instant
As an additional cost to cast Overpowering Explosion, sacrifice one or two artifacts.
Overpowering Explosion deals X damage divided as you choose among up to Y target creatures and/or players, where X is the converted mana cost of the first artifact sacrificed and Y is that of the second. If only one artifact is sacrificed, Y is 1.

If CKY hadn't beaten me to it, I would be nominating Double or Nothing as well.

Installment the 42nd
I sense weakness in recent CotWs. It is time to strike.

Specter Of Oversight
Creature - Specter
Flying
At the beginning of your end step, each opponent dealt combat damage by a creature you control this turn discards a card.
2/2

-Name too corny?

Krolo The Purist
Legendary Creature - Kor Zombie Cleric
Whenever a -1/-1 counter is put on a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it, exile that creature.
Whenever a +1/+1 counter is put on a creature with a -1/-1 counter on it, exile that creature.
2/3
And never the twain shall meet.

-Does this need some sort of counter granting ability of its own, or is it tantalizing enough as is? I suppose I'm fine with it being commander exclusive.

Snide Aside
Violent Silence
:pu::pb:
Instant
Counter target spell unless its controller pays 4 life.
"..." - corpses

-Most decks won't want it, but I really want to see the decks that do. Suicide tempo? Lifegain control?
-I want an even more cruel sounding name. Even if it means losing the wordplay.

Installment the 43rd - Mentors matter

Eager Pupil
Creature - Human
Whenever you mentor a creature, put a +1/+1 counter on ~.
1/1
-Admittedly, I don't know if this is proper fantasy fantasy cards rules speak.


Teacher's Assistant
Creature - Human
Mentor costs you pay cost less.
0/2
-Auriok Steelshaper says this is proper rules speak.
-Sadly, most mentor costs don't have a colorless component. We'll save this one for the release of Shadows Over Return To Sagathia.

Violent Silence is the best of the bunch I think. I think I'll go with that. I'll have to change the flavour text too. Can the ellipses be improved upon? Empty quotation marks could work. Would attributing it to your opponent be too meta? Maybe, "corpses"? Heck, stage directions ([silence)/(the king bleeds out silently)(the mime struggles against the wind)] could work. Decisions, decisions.

Objectively better, but not at all humorous.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a counterspell castable solely by paying life.

It's only a soft counter. I think that puts it a step below Mental Misstep's level. I don't think this is a scary card unless you can safely expect to have more life than your opponent. I can't think of a way to abuse this off the top of my head.

I need to see somebody use Violent Silence to counter a spell called Violence. Then I can die happy.

Instalment the 44th - Some real crazy stuff this time. Think deeply on this.

Bad
Instant
Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn.
////
Worse
Instant
Aftermath
Target creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn.

Grasp Of Darkness and Urge To Feed were my comparisons. This is less mana efficient, but can spread the hate over both turns and targets.



Shin Feng, The Humbling Breeze
Legendary Creature - Human Monk
Each creature has base power and toughness X/X, where X is that creature's original base power or base toughness, whichever is higher.
0/3

Mannichi, the Fevered Dream meets Doran/ Assault Formation! Which was the mother?
I can't nail down what colors this is.
P/T swapping is primarily red and sometimes blue. So I could see or .
I don't think that green's damage equal to toughness ability translates well enough here for it to be monogreen. I could sort of see a flavour argument though. just seems wrong but I can't say why.
Black and white occasionally make things into 0/X's. White has a greater claim though, as this is a universal effect, and can be used to help your meek little walls stand up to more threatening foes. This card essentially has two abilities- one power, and one toughness-focused. I could see it being .
Combining these arguments we could add and to the mix.
I want this to be multicolor for commander, but as exciting as nephilim are, I also want it to be feasible to use outside commander.
Any thoughts?
And the flavour could use work. I was going for a aikido angle, but I also have to imply he's teaching others the technique. Cyclone Palm Master? Wind Fist Dude? Give up and make it a spirit? A military strategist?

Challenge accepted. (And technically failed)

Azusa's Touch

You may play any number of basic lands on each of your turns, except you can't play two basic lands that share a name in the same turn.

Gaea's Touch makes me suspect you can't actually do that. It might be that Gaea's Touch never was intended to let you "play" the land in the first place though, but I think it's the only reference card-wise, and a part of me thinks it let you do so previously.
I'd also word that as "For each basic land type, you may play an additional basic land during your turn turn of that type." or something to that effect.

That's functionally different though.

Shin Feng feels green-white to me. It's functionally an anthem that improves the survivability of your dudes and makes your already survivable dudes more powerful, which feels very green-white.

It doesn't go infinite with Wastes and works better with other extra land effects, but other than that I'm not sure what's different about it.
I guess it lets you play two of one of the basic land types.

Ah dangit. I saw the Wastes combo coming and dropped the ball anyway. Changing it to name instead of type.

Don't forget, he also pumps your opponents creatures too.
I'll change it from to .

Installment the 45th

Cerberus Engine got me thinking about the number 3. Pretty good number overall.

Nonavus
Artifact creature - Construct
~ enters the battlefield with 9 +1/+1 counters on it.
Remove three +1/+1 counters from ~: Create a 3/3 Nonavite artifact creature token.
: Put a +1/+1 counter on ~.
0/0


Fury-Spewer
Creature - Elemental Berserker Shaman
First strike
Whenever you cast a Berserker spell, Berserker creatures you control get +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is that spell's converted mana cost.
1/1


Ghost Hex
Instant
Exile six target cards from graveyards.
May what was laid to rest here never wake.
The catch is the number six.


Edit- may as well throw in a contest entry
Irksome Apprentice
Creature - Human Cleric
When ~ enters the battlefield, name a card. Whenever the named card is cast, you gain 1 life.
2/1
