Before judging, I'm gonna restate what a taxing effect is:

1) Usually static, so its affect lasts for however long it is on the battlefield or whatnot.

2) Most of the time punishes (like Thalia).

3) Often doesn't come with a benefit for you other than taxing your opponent (or both players).

Example of a not-taxing effect: Draw 5 cards. Your opponent can discard X cards to reduce this number by X.

Example of a taxing effect: If your opponent would draw a card, you may discard a card. If you do, that player doesn't draw a card.

5/5


I really like the way this card would play. It incentivizes you to build your deck in a certain way to maximize its effect (as many taxing effects do) as well as staying true to the color pie. The "tap" effect is generally a white ability, even if it is on lands. 8/10

Bind to the Lifeblood 3BB

Enchantment [Rare]

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player loses life equal to the number of creatures that player controls.

Sacrifice a creature: The controller of the sacrificed creature gains 1 life. Any player may activate this ability.


This is definitely an interesting and creative design, but it doesn't really "tax" so to speak. Taxing means that it would be harder to do things normally, this just kills you for playing creatures. Something like, creatures spells players cast cost 1 more for each creature they control would be a taxing ability. But, I do really like the design, and it IS almost a taxing effect. So, 5.5/10

Draw a card for each creature target opponent controls, then discard a card.


Its an interesting card, but it is very off-theme. There is no way this is a taxing card at all. A taxing card makes things harder to do, it doesn't reward you directly for your opponent doing things. 2/10

Pulse of Nature 3GG

Enchantment (Rare)

Creatures spells cost you 1 less generic mana to cast for each creature you control. If this would reduce a creature's converted cost to Zero it reduces it to one instead.

Non-Creature spells you cast cost you 1 more mana to cast.


This is sort-of like a taxing effect, but it looks a lot more like just a good creature cost-reducer than a taxer. The last clause looks like it was thrown onto there to make it a taxer. Also, it doesn't affect your opponent, which makes it less of a taxer and more of a straight up build-around-card. 4/10

Enchantment *Rare*

Whenever a nonland permanent would enter the battlefield from anywhere other than exile, exile it with one time counter on it instead. If it doesn’t have suspend, it gains suspend.

I really like this card, it has a very on-color ability with a very interesting ability that really changes the way the game is played by both players. The most interesting taxing effects are the ones that are symmetrical like this. Really cool. 9/10

tangle wire of the void 3


artifact rare

Fading 4 (This artifact enters the battlefield with four fade counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a fade counter from it. If you can't, sacrifice it.)

Whenever a player casts a spell with converted mana cost less or equal to the number of time counters on tangle wire of the void, counter that spell.


Not very unique and it isn't really a taxing effect. 2/10

Selkie Blackmailer --- 1UG
Creature --- Merfolk Rogue --- Rare

When Selkie Blackmailer enters the battlefield, return each other creature to its owner's hand unless its controller pays 1 for that creature.

At the beginning of your upkeep, return another creature you control to your hand unless you pay 1.

2/3


First off, this card isn't really a taxer. It is more of a reflector mage effect I think. However, this is a SUPER cool design that I could probably be used again for a CAC. Just all the interactions that happen within this one card are super cool. 5/10

Eh, not very unique, not a taxer. 0/10

Constricting French Fries
4
Artifact
Rare

When you cast Constricting French Fries, purchase one Super Sized French Fries from your local McDonald's and put it onto the battlefield.

Creatures can't attack you unless their controller eats one French Fry for each creature he or she controls that's attacking. Creatures your opponents control can't block unless their controller eats one French Fry for each creature he or she controls that's blocking.

When there are no French Fries left to eat, creatures your opponents control can't attack or block.


Seems bothersome to be on the battlefield, but other than that, I'm lovin' it!

At the beginning of each endstep, if a creature entered the battlefield this turn and it had the largest converted mana cost amongst creatures on the battlefield, that player loses life equal to half that creature's converted mana cost rounded down.


This really isn't a taxer as I said in a previous submission because it uses life. Life more often than not isn't a method of taxing even though it can be precarious to be low on life. 5/10

Realmshear Device 2

Legendary Artifact - Mythic

Universal Landfall - Whenever a player puts a land onto the battlefield put a Tondendas counter on Realmshear Device.

Whenever there are four Tondendas counters on Realmshear Device, remove all counters from all cards called Realmshear Device. If you do, the player with the highest number of lands, sacrifices lands until he or she has the same number of lands as the player with the least.

Urza had unsuccessfully worked on the Realmshear Device for a millenia before his apprentice Mishra gave him the formula to perfect its mechanism.


This is actually a really interesting taxing effect because it doesn't directly tax. It doesn't make your spells cost more, or make you not able to activate abilities or anything, but indirectly it makes playing lands harder, therefor making your spells being cast harder. I really like it, nice job. 8/10

Not very creative and not really a taxing effect. Just makes them decide between paying or discarding, not say "whenever a player casts a spell, they must pay 1 or discard a card". 2/10

Yeah I was not sure if my card was a taxing card. Sadly I missed your memo on how you define the effect. Also nice to see a create a card where the actual best card won.
