You people are awful.
Anyway, abstaining from this one, because I wouldn't want to ruin Shazzeh's chances.

I tend to vote on cards I like, not on how good they are. V:

That reminds me. There's no use throwing out good designs, so if a card doesn't win one of these but is well-received, can it still compete for another card slot?

Yes, but only if it fits that criteria, too.

Actually, I intentionally left it as a 2/2 on T1. Which either means I'm really out of touch with what is considered acceptable these days, or else I'm into power creep. Or both.

Fantasyland fundraw time:
T1: Tree of Tales, Adaptive Ooze (Ooze is now 3/3)
T2: Swamp, Bitterblossom? Swing with 5/5 and have a Bitterblossom in play?


My dude!

T1: Forest, Ornithopter, Exogoyf, exile top 2 cards of library: Dryad Arbor and a Bow of Nylea. Exogoyf is now 4/5.
T2: Forest, Noble Hierarch, Noble Hierarch, attack with Exogoyf, exile 4 cards, easily covering the other 4 types: Hunting Triad, Giant Growth, a Garruk...? Swing for... 10?

Don't judge power levels by godhands with cards that are banned in modern. That said, ooze might be a bit strong. They haven't even printed a vanilla 1 mana 2/2 yet.

At the beginning of your upkeep, add to your mana pool for each card type among permanents on the battlefield. Mana produced this way doesn't empty from your mana pool until end of turn.

Sorcery (R)
For each card type among cards in your graveyard, return target card of that type from your graveyard to your hand. Exile Consult the Elder Trees.
Every tree in Frostwynd remembers when the sun set; that moment marked the end of their lineage.

Each player draws cards equal to the number of card types among cards in his or her graveyard.

Whatever wasn't destroyed during its time in the Illpyre, is buried deep within the Frostwynd.

My first-thought card was close to Cato's. On to idea #2.

Exogoyf
Creature - Lhurgoyf (R)
When Exogoyf enters the battlefield or attacks, exile the top X cards of your library, where X is the number of creatures you control.
Exogoyf gets +1/+1 for each card type among cards exiled by Exogoyf.
0/1


I vote for Shazzeh.

Storyteller, although it should be like 1/2.

EDIT: Also feels more uncommon than rare. I just like the flavor a lot.

I love Lily's concept but I think it's a tad strong as a one sided effect - I think it would work better in the Eladamri's Vineyard concept where everyone gets the mana but only your deck is likely built to exploit it.

Gotta vote Shazzeh.

Missed a vote for me, though it hardly matters.
