I still scribble down cool ideas when I come up with them, but I've been posting them to ymtc a lot less than in the past.

I have a mediocre sized backlog of random designs so I'll be posting a few cards on these forums every couple of days until I inevitably run out of cards and disappear forever.

Feel free to give me heaps of praise because that's the only reason why I do these things.

Make Them Pay seems interesting... I feel like it should be damage-based though. Unless you want someone to play Plunge into Darkness or Toxic Deluge and then hit an opponent for 19 (or more potentially). Then again, that's a turn 6 thing, so... I guess it's fine?

Imperium is probably fine; in 1v1 it's basically a cheaper Mindslaver with color requirements. In multiplayer it's pretty strong, but, it's an 8-drop, so, probably fine.

Desperate Pact is a bit weak, I think. Compare Eldrazi Monument (similar effect, but stronger, and only 1 sac per turn) and Phyrexian Soulgorger. Cumulative upkeep - Sacrifice a creature is a strong enough drawback to get a colorless 8/8 for 3. I guess the Platinum Angel effect is also useful, but not as much as it could be... honestly? I could see making it cost , or even , and still adding Flash to it. The flavor is really cool though, and gives me some interesting ideas...

Make Them Pay seems red only in name.
Imperium seems okay, but it may as well be a sorcery.
Desperate Pact is really cool. That drawback is killer though. Maybe have it sacrifice any permanent? It could drop the green from the cost too.

Blood Celebrant could let you cast it for 19 with 3 swamps, not that it breaks any format with cards that old.

The silly part is that Village Idiot could be any color, exept maybe Black.
