Avacyn's lightbringer - WW

Rare - Human Cleric

Whenever an opponent casts a non-white, non-artifact spell, you may gain 2 life.

2/2


Idea: It's white saying "I hate those that aren't white", which is the "darker" half of white- if it's not with us, with our community, it's against us. Considering making it black or red spell, to make it more of a sideboard card- not sure though.

It's rare because it's non-legendary, and doesn't have the potential for awesome. Artifacts aren't "really" spells flavorwise, so they slip by - only castings of color. (ok, eldrazi are colorless, but w/e)

Kills storm decks, and is 2/2 for 2. I'd expect fringe legacy play, and most creature decks in white would run 2-4 sideboard, and it's good enough to be mainboard.

2 life, 1 life, unsure which is right. 3 is completely out of the question.

Costs MUST be WW, otherwise it'd be too strong.


Why it's not broken: While it has a strong effect, the effect doesn't actually win the game, nor does the card protect itself. It's just highly efficient.

Uronor, the Cold Ash
UR
Legendary Creature - Elemental Spirit
Mythic Rare
2/1

Flash
Whenever Uronor, the Cold Ash enters or leaves the battlefield, choose one: Uronor deals 2 damage to target creature or player; or put target creature on top of its owner's library.

The perfection of things lies in the chaoticness of it.

Edit:
Just to point out that there are lots of combos with this card, even with playing it for 1 effect, killing it and doing the other effect, or even playing it to return it to your hand to trigger the effect once.
It can be pretty broken, but UR deserves it.
Maybe playing it, playing one effect, damaging it, bouncing or killing another creature, and possibly draw a card with it dying.
I didnt know about the Flash ability overpowerness, but I think that without it, it will not be that awesome.

Legendary Creature: Elf Wizard

Cascade
Flash

Those aren't beautiful creatures. Those are just the spike-y ones - lil critters that are deemed efficient for their manacost/abilities/power-toughness.

I deem this thread biased!

My submission:

Goblin Seductress
3RRRR
Creature - Goblin (R)
When Goblin Seductress enters the battlefield, gain control of all non-goblin creatures. Untap those creatures and they gain haste. (This effect does not end at end of turn)
You may sacrifice three goblins instead of paying RRRR to play Goblin Seductress.
"Oh Squee... I'm reeeeeaaaaady."
0/1

*for the art, I suggest getting Gollum in drag.

I always felt that red needed a great 2-drop, since all other colors already have (tarmogoyf, snapcaster mage, dark confidant, stoneforge mystic). Here's mine:

Sulfur Enthusiast 1R

Creature - Human Shaman Rare

Haste

Tap: Sulfur Enthusiast deals 2 damage divided as you choose among one or two target creatures and/or players.

0/1
