Making Up Cards Monday #13:

Welcome to our Monday segment, Making Up Cards Monday where we... well, make up cards. Most of them have inspirations behind them and sometimes you just wanted to make a funny card, or a card that had your flavor to it.

Either way, you can read the cards and judge them for yourselves.

Evoker - 2UU
Creature - Human Wizard
Creature spells in your hand have evoke equal to their mana cost.

Not a very powerful card, but it does give all creature spells the ability to trigger enter and leave the battlefield effects. Or maybe just run it with Kresh the Bloodbraided.

Lucky Blast - R
Deal 2 damage to target creature or player.
If you won the clash, deal 2 damage to another target creature or player.

Funny how we love to make certain cards obsolete. Shock being one of the popular ones. Other popular cards to become obsolete repeatedly involve Cancel, and Grizzly Bears.

This card though might not always be strictly better than Shock. It does allow your opponent to scry 1. Best case scenario, you see what your opponent will draw. Worst case, he's one card closer to the card that might win the game. A bit of a corner-case so it might not be strictly better. You also get to scry 1, so in a lot of cases it could be more useful.

The only thing to be careful of is that the clash is a must, and so is the additional target. So if both you and your opponent have an empty field, and are both sitting on 2 life, it's a draw if you win the clash since the target can't be the same for both effects. Would probably never happen though.

Prototype Claws - 5
Artifact - Equipment
Living Weapon
Equipped creature gains +3/+1, has first strike, and is a Horror in addition to its other types.
Equip {3}

I made this card a while ago when Lolzor was playing a lot of Prototype and we also decided what Living Weapon actually needed. Living Weapon was actually a scary mechanic because it could have made a lot of creature obsolete.

Like if every living weapon had a power and toughness equal to its converted mana cost (2-cost 2/2's, 3-cost 3/3's) then it would be the end of vanilla creature, because Living Weapon serves a dual purpose in that sense.

Somered Dragon - 4RRR
Creature - Dragon
When Somered Dragon enters the battlefield, destroy target nonenchantment permanent.
{S}: Tap target permanent. It doesn’t untap during it’s controller’s next untap step.
{R}: Somered Dragon gains +1/+0 until end of turn.

I found the art for this card first, and just decided to work top down from it. I know snow creatures are out of date and so is snow mana, but there really weren't any huge snow creatures that people were crazy for. So I decided to make a sort of Lorthos, the Tidemaker in snow decks. Though it's much better since it's instant speed, at the cost of triple red unsplashableness.

I found it interesting to make, so that's why I'm posting it.
