i'd say that there's considerable daylight between generic and colorless . but your point that aetherfish can chump anything is well taken. aetherfish should look like this

An aetherfish deftly navigates the the ocean of existence, apparently unbothered by depth, temperature or tide.

Whenever a legendary creature dies, you may have Marble Elemental become a copy of it. (It loses this ability.)
The quarries of Bal'sheba bear the faces of foremen long past, as the rough marble wills itself into heroic sculpture.

Also I totally forgot you could have an artist and designer credit on those things.

Wasn't Bacchanalia more of a wild festival? Seems weird to give it the Holy Day treatment. Their holy days were a little different.

party is holy day

Cursed Portrait
Artifact Creature — Spirit
Whenever you would lose life, instead put that many age counters on Cursed Portrait. (Damage causes loss of life.)
When Cursed Portrait leaves the battlefield, you lose life equal to the number of age counters on it.
The fief-prince Leonhardt IV remained thirty-two years old for centuries, until the day his portrait gallery went up in smoke.
0/4

Taravangian Syndrome
Enchantment
Skip your draw step.
You have no maximum hand size.
At the beginning of your end step, swap your hand and your library.

Creature spells you cast cost less to cast for each printed creature type among creatures you control.

Why not say non-Shapeshifter creatures?

That works too, but it encounters the same problem if a non-Shapeshifter Changeling-esque ability gets printed in the future. Is this solution non-comprehensive?

It could be non-Turtle too, since any creature with all creature types will be a Turtle and a Shapeshifter.

I don't think checking printed types isn't comprehensive, but there aren't really other cards that check printed characteristics which means the interactions might not be familiar to people. What printed creature types does Clone have? What about a Spitting Image token? What about a Riptide Replicator or Soul Foundry token?

I think we’re on the same page — while Marshland Symphony probably works as worded, it’s not worth the small elegance gain to make a surface distinction between “printed” and “not printed” creature types (or anything, really)

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Until the beginning of the next end step

we actually still use "Until end of turn…" or "…this turn" for these; "the beginning of the next end step" is only for when it's preceded by the word "At" e.g. Ball Lightning

i feel like Jinzo needs to use transfigure somehow.
