I definitely intended to go two months without making one of these, it's all part of my master plan don't worry about it

Premise:

mash-ups. I'll use scryfall to generate three random cards, and then you make something that is inspired by all of them. to be clear, the inspiration can be loose and it does not have to be mechanical. I'll accept basically anything you feel you can reasonably justify. in fact, I may even prefer entries that take their inspiration in unexpected, clever ways instead of just copying a line of rules text from each one. (although also feel free to use rules text from them, I'm not saying don't do that. just don't make an obvious mechanical frankenstein that doesn't make much sense as its own card.) also, please include a brief blurb explaining what you borrowed from each card.

This Round's Cards:

make something that draws inspiration from:



deadlines are imaginary so I'll leave this open until it's been 48 hours since the last entry.

I debated rerolling them to get a set that's less self-similar but I decided I trust y'all to find interesting things to do with these.

Separate up to five cards from your graveyard into two face-down piles. Choose a pile, then your opponent chooses one —
  • You put the chosen pile into your hand, then exile the other pile.
  • You draw a card for each card in the other pile, then exile your graveyard.

Ashen Inkling
Creature - Illusion
Flash
When Ashen Inkling dies, reveal the top five cards of your library. An opponent separates those cards and this card into two piles. Put one pile into your hand and the other into your graveyard.
2/1
Literary phantasms have a dangerous appreciation for dramatic endings, far all that death has such a loose grasp on their existence.

Bone to Ash - Ash as an element of the creature, instant speed, casting cost
Fact or Fiction - the card draw format, the blurring of reality and illusion
Aven Fisher - Death trigger card advantage

Ashen Fisher
Creature - Spirit Avatar
Flying
This spell costs or less to cast for each card you've drawn this turn.
When Ashen Fisher enters the battlefield, target opponent looks at the top three cards of your library and separates them into piles of one face-up card and two face down cards. Put one of the piles into your hand and the other into your graveyard.
2/4

In general - Benefits from card draw, which two of the three do, and the third kind of does
Bone to Ash - Name
Fact or Fiction - Has a divvy ability
Aven Fisher - Name, flying creature

As an additional cost to cast this spell, exile a card from your hand face-down.

Bone or Bane

Sorcery
Search your library and your graveyard for a card each and exile those cards. If they have different names, target opponent chooses one of them. Put the other into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

Bone to Dust - bone in the name
Fact or Fiction - opponent chooses, name structure
Aven Fisher - gets a single card

When ~ dies, put it on top of your library, then reveal the top three cards of your library. An opponent separates those cards into two piles. Put one pile into your hand and the other into your graveyard.
"Until I decide your parts are more suitable elsewhere, you may exist."
—Ludevic, necro-alchemist

4/4

I thought putting the creature itself in with the piles was an interesting way to combine the mechanics of Aven Fisher and Fact or Fiction. For Bone to Ash, I went with more of a flavor connection, tying in Ludevic's love of zombie horrors as well as the idea of using alchemy to convert one thing to another.

edit: removed flying and adjusted stats

Wild Summoning

Sorcery
Reveal the top five cards of your library. An opponent separates them into two piles. Put all lands from one pile onto the battlefield tapped, and all creatures from the other into your hand.

it costs 4 involves creatures and 'draws' you cards (also blatantly rips off fof)
it's probably also a little broken and kinda feels like it's been done before but i don't want to verify whether it has so here's hoping it hasn't
