I'm going fullhalf razor on this. That way, if I get a low score, razor gets a low score; and this might encourage the judges to give razor a good score and by virtue of my submission me a good score.

Razor's Workshop:
Dutiful Thrull - it's adorable, but my first thought was to make Teysa, but she was already made so this lost a LOT of potential for me. I could play it off as a Return to The Return of Ravnica, but I'll see. It's still a possibility, but a lot of the charm has been sucked out of it. Make a line of Dutiful blank. Dutiful Spirit, Dutiful Knight, and in the Teysa case, Dutiful Guildmaster. I really like the flavor behind these, but it would be reserved for an RTRTR.

Disciple of the Vault - Another one of my favorite cards was disciple of the vault. And given my favorite vertical cycle to date is the Familiar, Apprentice, Battlemage, and Master cycle; Disciple seemed to be another great starting point. I started comoing up with the names. Disciple goes to worship, Priest or Keeper maintains, Lord owns, Spirit or Essence is.
But then Geth, Lord of the Vault exists and stinketh because now I have to make a new rarity that's more mythic than mythic. I called it Really Mythic Rare (RMR for short), but that felt cheating because it doesn't actually fit the criteria. I need to make the mythic rare not the really mythic rare that I've onw concepted. Besides that fact that this is kinda already done makes this lose a lot of charm as, well, it's already been done (kinda).

Porcelain Legionnaire - Homeboy Porcelain legionaire! And Vault Skirge were my favorite cards in New Phyrexia. I lost many a draft because I overvalued these cards, but I didn't care. They were awesome, and I took them all. My biggest complaint about using this guy is that they already have like 5 horizontal cycles working with this mechanic, and so it seems like they've already done a vertical cycle with this mechanic. But they technically haven't. So it's okay, but it's wierd. Currently, this is the closest to being picked one for me.

==xx==

Actually, I talked myself into saying Geth is stupid and I'm going with my RMR idea.

Soul of the Vault --
Creature - Avatar (MR)

When you cast Soul of the Vault, exile each graveyard.
Whenever an artifact is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, exile it.
At the beginning of your upkeep, target opponent loses X life and you gain X life, where X is the number of artifacts exiled with Soul of the Vault.

4 / 4

==xx==

Cycle Reasoning:
We have Disciple of the Vault as a start that drains life at each instance.
My next two would be Keeper of the Vault, then Lord of the Vault. Keeper is the priest that the disciples come to show worship, the lord of the vault would be the owner of the vault as a whole. The keeper would do something to benefit the Disciples in someway (either enhancing their P/T or their ability), and the Lord would have a way to sacrifice artifacts for a benefit.
That brings us to the mythic which is the Soul of the Vault which is the embodiement of the vault itself.

Card Reasoning:


I'm not currently sold on this idea, but until I get a working idea from the New Phyrexian Mana cycle, this will be a placeholder.

EDIT: So, I'm probably incredibly biased with this decision, but I made it WB. I have a clerics deck with WB clerics, and this just feels that, despite the common (or one of the commons) being black, that it would be limited to black. I'm gonna say this is a five card vertical cycle. There is a Disciple of the Vault and... uh... a Priest of the Vault, or Acolyte of the Vault with the life gian effect. Then the uncommon rare and mythic would all be multicolored.

Whenever a player discards a card, you may pay . If you do, put a 5/5 white Angel creature token with flying and vigilance onto the battlefield (under your control).
1/4

It should hopefully be obvious, but the cards in the cycle would have each a "Whenever a player discards a card" trigger ability that increases in power as the rarity increases, with a cost attached to the trigger for some of the abilities.

Old, not the submission

I'm far from done, and I'm assuming my final submission will actually change.
All of which will be recorded :p

But currently noted and now I claimed half.

Trample, haste
Other creatures you control have reach and deathtouch.
"She is our saviour from her own kind. She is most dangerous of all."
—Creed of the Thornweald

8/4

I have an idea that she's blind, and by looking into her eyes, the Thornweald archers become immune to the basilisk gaze. But even though she's super old she's still really dangerous to approach, so you have to have the skills. Right now I can't think of any flavour text to convey all of that without also being clunky and stupid. Maybe later. EDIT: I have flavour text now but it still sucks. At least if I can't think of anything better I still have something.

The actual design is supposed to be a nasty beatstick that allows you to swing in and keep your other creatures back to block. One would expect the mythic member of a vertical cycle to be a big fatty, but the Thornweald abilities don't really work on a big fatty, so it grants them to everything else instead.

Full marks to anyone who uses Camel.

I'll take that challenge.


Bassem, Coraller of Camels
Legendary Creature - Human Scout
At the beginning of your upkeep you may pay . If you do, put a 0/1 white camel token with Soulbond onto the battlefield. It has "As long as Camel is paired with another creature, both creatures have protection from nonbasic lands."
"My camels have been everywhere. They are unimpeded by burning sands, unimpressed by legendary sites, and unfazed by mystical mazes."
2/3

I'm pretty sure I got the wording right as I jacked the templating from Brood Keeper and Diregraf Escort.

EDIT:

by the way if you don't think it's completely obvious it may be worth briefly explaining how your cycle works. don't show the other cards or anything, but quick overview of the concept.

:duel:
My cycle starts with Camel, would have a second Camel card at uncommon that might have nonbasic landwalk, have some sort of camel farmer lord at rare that maybe gave camels +1/+1 or +1/+0 and have some nonbasic theme, and this guy at mythic to produce camels that you can ride and give protection against various non-basic lands.

The biggest issue is that Camel has Banding and Wizards hates that ability. I'm guessing instead of a real reprint, they'd make a nearly functional reprint that carried the same spirit.

I used a little creative freedom for this one.

Common: Scale of Chiss-Goria

Chiss-Goria, Furnace Dragon
Legendary Artifact Creature ─ Dragon (M)
Flash, flying, affinity for artifacts
: Chiss-Goria gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
If Chiss-Goria, Furnace Dragon's power is greater than its toughness, sacrifice Chiss-Goria and Chiss-Goria deals damage equal to its power to each creature and player.
4/7
The furnace that roared in her chest was a constant reminder to keep her rage in check. She had watched the others succumb. This would not be her fate.

For those that enjoy lore.

^I'm pretty sure this doesn't work mechanically.
Storm triggers before the spell is put on the stack.

Yeah, it should be something like "The next instant or sorcery spell you cast gains Storm."

I didn't see the noneditted version, but it could also have said:
"When you cast your next spell this turn, copy it for each spell you cast before it this turn."

The version that has been suggested and apparently used is far more concise :p

While this is considerably more eloquent...there is power in that word...STORM!!!

I really want it to remain open to any spell and not just your own. I am a huge fan of EDH and multiplayer in general so...it has it's uses.
