MUCMonday #28

Making Up Cards Monday #28:

Welcome back to another segment of MUCMonday. Getting right back into the swing of things, here are this week's cards:

Clash of the Titans - XGG
Clash with an opponent.
Put an X/X green treefolk token onto the battlefield. If you won the clash, put two X/X’s instead.

When I heard that "clash" was a failed mechanic, I went on a bit of a spree of actually using Clash the way it was intended to be. I think that it is a really good mechanic, there just aren't enough cards that the reward the clash mechanic outweighs the normal cost. For example: Pulling Teeth

Goblin Brigade - (G/R)(G/R)(G/R)(G/R)(G/R)(G/R)
Creature - Goblin
Trample, double strike, haste

A card that Sean wanted to make. I originally thought that this card was undercosted, but after a while I kind of began to accept that it might even be overcosted.

So here it is.

Super Mitotic Slime - GGGG
Creature - Ooze
When Super Mitotic Slime dies put two 2/2 ooze tokens with “When this creature dies, put two 1/1 ooze tokens onto the battlefield.”

I used to Super Mitotic Slime. I thought it was an interesting concept, but never really liked the card. I sold my two copies to Lolzor for a dime each. He has fun with them.

Then the undying mechanic came out, and Lolzor joked about giving Mitotic Slime undying. And so here we are. I fixed it's original "mana cost" problem it had, but added a huge dilemma of it being basically unsplashable. Perfect for green.

It's a shame Undying doesn't work on tokens.

Treason Bounce - URR
Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap that creature, it gains haste until end of turn. At the end of turn, return that creature to its owner’s hand.

Act of Treason + Unsummon. Pretty simple. I liked it.

No crazy cards this week like Altar of Wishes, but nonetheless I hope you enjoyed it. Come back next week for more cards
