Let's do a top down design of tropes like they did with the Innistrad block.
The genre I choose is:

Swashbuckling

Do a card that feels like it belongs to a Magic set representing that genre and I will judge it by how well it does. Flavor can play a role as much as mechanics and they should work together.
I will probably give a comment to every entry and choose my favorite and runner-ups. I won't commit to a grading scale unless i have to break a tie.

I will keep the thread open over the weekend probably and judge it on Sunday.
