Second, these are way cooler (and better) than Auras. The problem with Auras is that removing the target results in the loss of a card. Imbue is designed in such a way that the only loss if the target is removed is some mana, which is an acceptable fail state.


I also like it, but I don't understand how it works if the target is removed?

I'm talking specifically if the target is removed in response. An Aura spell will fizzle and go to the graveyard if its target is removed in response. With imbue, it's an activated ability that's fizzling, so the revealed card stays in your hand.

Yep, all fair. I really like my concept, but struggled really hard to balance it, which probably should have been a sign to move on.

Ah well, I will have a crack at the Sphinx thanks Q.

I see it now. Since exiling it isn't part of the cost. I'll have to nominate one for cotw...

Not too sure if this qualifies for the criteria but I think it does????

Junkyard Refitter -
Creature - Human Artificer
Whenever an artifact creature you control dies or a creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it dies, you may exile it instead. If you do, scavenge. (Create a colorless Parts artifact token with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.)
In the Outlands where resources were scarce, there was more incentive to recycle their failed constructs and dead augmented relatives.
2/2

Lammasu totem.

Shadowfallen Overlord
Creature - Shadowfallen (R)
Flying
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, its controller loses life equal to its converted mana cost unless its controller appeases Shadowfallen Overlord.
Appease - Put two +1/+1 counters on Shadowfallen Overlord to appease it.
6/6
It craved blood for the power to remember what it used to be. The rage that followed only brought more.

A combination of Faery, Demon and Horror, the Shadowfallen are creatures that have been tainted by the Great Aurora after continued exposure to life on Shadowmoor. Time on Shadowmoor has been affected by the Great Aurora. Thousands of years have passed on the plane since we last visited. Over these years, the Faeries have slowly been driven mad, twisted as all things were by the change, just more slowly. They proved to be more susceptible to the seductive power of demonic forces. Their natures changed from playful or curious to vicious and cruel. They have become creatures of whimsy, tainted by their demonic natures. Some moments they are overcome with rage, the next ruled by their playful or domineering side. They are now mostly black, with straying into blue and red.

Appease - An action keyword, it is a Tribute-like effect that is triggered by a given event in game. It plays with the Faerie nature still inherent in the monsters they have become. They can be tricked and distracted by shiny things, like coins or trinkets, in the weaker Shadowfallen, or by blood or power in the older, more power ones. It also plays into the demonic natures of being superior to the other creatures on Shadowmoor. The denizens of Shadowmoor have learned to bargain with these beings by bribing them whenever possible.

High Stakes |
Enchantment | R
When High Stakes enters the battlefield, each player exiles the top three cards of their library face down.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep that player names a non-land card, then reveals a card at random they own exiled by High Stakes. If it shares a name with the named card, that player casts it without paying its mana cost. If the revealed card is a land card, put it into its owner's graveyard, then draw two cards.
The first rule of gambling: The House always wins.

Snake totem Challenge

Sympathetic Descendant
Creature - Angel
Flying
: If Sympathetic Descendant is an angel, put a -1/-1 counter on it, it loses flying, and becomes a human. When another target creature is put into your graveyard from the battlefield this turn, return that card to the battlefield.
3/3

Several of the totems you failed to conquer got conquered by other folks, so they're not listed there anymore.

YingLung is currently challenging Snake, but once that's been graded you can challenge it. If you'd rather challenge something else in the meantime that's fine too.

TURTLE
This is meant to be a 1st-Zendikar block flavored card. I’m paying tribute to Calcite Snapper (which MaRo refers to as “Convertible Turtle”) and to the totem armor mechanic (many of which take the form “[CREATURE] Umbra”)

Turtle Umbra
Enchantment-Aura (U)
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature gets +0/+6 and has hexproof
: Switch enchanted creature’s power and toughness until end of turn
Totem armor
More calcium than a cartload of milk, a harder shell than a suit of armor.

The reason I'm splashing an additional color here is that I can't justify monoblue getting a de-facto +6/+0. I went with green for the second color, though theorectically I could've also considered red, except why would a turtle be red and why would a red card grant +0/+6?
