I thought the card for this round was supposed to encourage you to play something, not discourage others.

Rattleskull Viashino
Creature - Viashino Shaman
Exile a creature card from your graveyard: ~ gains intimidate until end of turn.
The Kitro tribe still follow their tradition's Rite of Bones before hunting, but these days it's primarily an act for causing panic.
3/1

Reprint Tortured Existence.

Tortured Existence
Enchantment (C)
, Discard a creature card: Return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.
"There are terrors lurking in the unseen corners of us all."—Crovax

(Flavor text would be reworked once we've established some block characters. The baddest-ass black legendary we make would likely have a similar-toned statement as Crovax's above).

I'd've voted Effigy if it put the Skeleton under your control instead of theirs (more like Violet Pall) and preferably made the skeleton able to regenerate if you're making the choice to preserve the outdated "It can't be regenerated" mode.

Mown has a good point—most of these don't really follow the criteria, they just hose creatures.

My vote goes to thatmarkguy.

I like Ace's card, but I feel it's probably more uncommon than common.
I can't imagine Tortured Existence being fair nowadays - especially at common!

I like Effigy's card. It's like a Crib Swap.

I wouldn't say these don't follow the criterion at all. These do care about a certain card type, they just care in the way Black normally would: by killing/denying it.


Vote goes to Effigy.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
If Effigy's card wins, do people think we should give the Skeleton the ability to regenerate? Fits the flavor better, as evidenced by Skeletonize. Sorry to get all developmenty, I just really like the concept of the card and want it to be perfect.

I change my vote to Mown. Tortured Existence really doesn't work at common. I added it to the Reprints thread at Uncommon, though.

Current Tally:

Mown: 2.5
Effigy: 2
Cato: 1

Uh, let's see.

Parad, because I want that thing to have a flavor text really badly and I'm in favor of ruins.

Long ago, the towers of Frostwynd stood tall and cast the longest shadows. Now, they cast no shadows at all.

I just forgot to put it on there, so yes it should have regenerate.

The only place it's ever been printed at is common.

Anyhoo, I vote Cato.
