I apologize for providing mechanics that were most likely annoying to balance, as well as sparse base flavor. Here are the top four designs, if I went and mulled over reviewing each entry, I'd probably end up delaying this too long (again) which no one wants.

1. Sudden Realization
2. Disharmonic Dirge
3. The Durandai Front
4. Quezori Troubador

Congratulations BelangiaJo, you are up next!

Welcome to the land of the literature. That's right!
In the same way that Eldraine is the land of the fairy tale, Avonia is the land of the literary greats.

On this plane, we have several tropes made famous by some of the most brilliant authors and poets of our time:
  • William Shakespeare
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • Sylvia Plath
  • Charles Dickens
  • Mark Twain
  • William Blake
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Etc.

Let's try to keep this list of authors between the mid 1500s and late 1800s. No JK Rowling, please.
Sylvia Plath is an exception because her poems are beautiful.

Since there is a natural overlap between these stories and some fairy tales, please do not use any mechanics from Eldraine: Adventure, Food tokens, Adamant, etc.

This set is also a bit meta - where the focus is on the storytellers themselves and there's a mechanic that makes their stories come to life.

Limited Archetypes (described at a high level) - shown on signpost uncommons:
: Story conflict (capture the flavor of writer's block) - Revise mechanic
: Story conflict (negative story triggers for opponents) - Revise mechanic
: Bard tribal (aggressive) - Inspired returning mechanic
: Bard tribal (go wide) - Inspired returning mechanic
: Retelling stories (self-mill) - Foreshadow mechanic
: Story triggers (spells matter)
: Retelling stories (ramp) - Foreshadow mechanic
: Story conflict (punisher effects) - Revise mechanic
: Retelling stories (recursion) - Foreshadow mechanic
: Bard tribal (go tall) - Inspired returning mechanic
