The idea had been floating around in my head since I started work on Fool's Gold. I started actually making cards and defining the environment around August 2014.

That's less horrible than a thought. I was about to be super jelly.

I love how well flesh out the theme is at all rarities. I could play with all commons and still get the feel for the set. Nicely done.

I realized I forgot to give white enchantment removal at common, so I scrapped Golden Carriage for a new card, First Light.

Bump for comments and criticism. I understand that 214 cards is a lot to take in, but if you have the time to spare to skim over my project of a few months in the making, I would appreciate it very much. :)

Green bodies seem really small at common. Green usually gets bigger bodies on average than other colours at common, especially at midrange cmcs. I'd be happier seeing less tricks and bigger bodies in that area. I also don't know if you want two fog variants at common. Shared strength is my favourite green common.

grandmaster duelist feels very not green.

the black lotus card is really cool and favourful

romantic poetry is really cool too.

Thanks for your comments!

One of the rules of the set was every creature has to make sense as a possible romantic partner with every other creature (with the exception of Yoked Ox, because it's funny). In practice, this means the creature has to be sapient and humanoid, so I couldn't make large green creatures that might be Wurms or Beasts in other sets. It also doesn't make sense to have a lot of creatures that are individually large, since romantic comedies and love stories rarely feature giant monsters.

I tried my best to find workarounds, of course. The printed P/T on the green commons is small, but they can get very large virtual P/T. Village Stoutheart can be 4/4. Childhood Friend makes something else into a 4/4. Retired Champion is almost always 6/6, the largest common creature in the set. Make sure to take that into account when considering the P/T of green commons in Roses of Paliano.

Another rule of Roses of Paliano was that I wanted the format to showcase the relationships between creatures rather than the creatures themselves. This is why I pushed combat tricks and shared bond in the set. Since the theme of green is paired creatures, it makes sense to have fewer individually large creatures but more cards that improve with the number of creatures you have.

I think it's alright. It isn't going to break Limited, and all of the Fogs have different flavor. I also like that the set themed around love has many ways to protect you and your partner.

It's a riff on Ulvenwald Tracker. I agree that it mechanically could be red. Green needed a powerful small creature at rare though, and none of the parts are out of green's color pie, so I decided to give the card to green.
