These are a few cards I've been working on that I consider to be above most of the other stuff I've put out lately. Other than that there's no real connecting theme. This is also the post where I (slowly) learn to indent!

Reverb Chamber
Artifact
, : Put a 1/1 colorless Illusion creature token onto the battlefield.
, Sacrifice a creature: Illusion creatures you control become copies of the sacrificed creature until end of turn.
Can you not hear the echoes? Those voices bereft of being? Their wailings consume me! - Athadean "the Mad Composer"

So yeah, I just really like this concept. Razor mentioned something about a music set and that's what inspired the flavour. He can use this card in that set, but he has to help me come up with a better name.



The Overbeing
Legendary Creature - Incarnation
~'s power and toughness are both equal to the number of permanents on the battlefield.
*/*

I've had a character in my head that basically was an entire plane. They would exist as both a palne and an entity simultaneously. They were hard to make a card for. They ended up as a really big Beast of Burden. It works though, right?
Failed attempts



Spark Snuffer
Creature - Human Assassin
As long as ~ is attacking a planeswalker, it can't be blocked.
3/1
Unchallenged across the breadth of the land. Baharaz turned his gaze outward.
Baharaz, the affairs of his empire well in hand, took means to suppress outside influence.

I thought this was a neat way to deal with walkers. Naturally it had to be an assassin. Before black started getting card that destroy planeswalkers this would have been pretty great solution. As is I have to wonder if another colour needs it more.

I feel like black probably shouldn't get a no-drawback 3/1 creature for . If Spark Snuffer were to cost , I would be more comfortable with it.

Nonetheless, I like both Reverb Chamber and Spark Snuffer design-wise. Well done.

I feel like spark snuffer should be blue, both because blue gets unblockable and because blue needs answers to resolved walkers more than anyone else.
