Creature – Human Barbarian
Hexproof from instants and from sorceries
When you cast Kin-Caller, search your library for a creature card with a lower converted mana cost and put that card onto the battlefield under your control.
Legendary Land
{t}: Add {c}.
{2}, {t}: Put a void counter on target land without a void counter on it. For as long as that land has a void counter on it, it is a Waste. (It loses all other types and abilities and has “{t}: Add {c}.”)

On Shroud in Darkness:

Seems like a mono-{b} card to me. Name alludes to this as well.

On The Encroaching Void:

Eh; you can if you make it a new mechanic rule. But it's certainly be unusual.

On The Encroaching Void:

Waste is a card name, not a land type. You can't "make something a waste," you have to spell it out like Imprisoned in the Moon

Well, functional reprints for pure flavour reason are a thing. Usually at common though; since what's the point of a neat flavour tweak that people never see? Though I guess this is also one bigger which feels like maybe slightly too good.

Why is this rare? It's a red-flag at common, (since it's a 1-for-2 kill spell) sure.

On Pandyssian Venom:

I would just reprint Consume Strength.

Mmm, but how many cheap 1/1 deathtouch can a set afford? Maybe two? And would anyone ever bother using the spare ability on thm, rather than saying "Hey, a perfect chump blocker!" leading to groundstall problems?

On Resolute Elf:

Vitenka is right about this being less useful on low-powered creatures. However, spare can be printed on a 1/1 creature with deathtouch for a relatively low cost. That is, presuming the spare ability isn't too strong (maybe it shuffles a card from that player's graveyard back into their library. Maybe you gain 3 life.)

On Resolute Elf:

Oh; they do exist. It just feels weird. (And feels weird on that one). But as I said; this is clearly what Elvish Piper became when it grew bigger. So it's fine to me over-all.

Though if I could think of a creature whose signature was being 3/4, I'd suggest making it a that-piper instead :)

Since I didn't say it before - this is a kinda interesting use of spare. The creature clearly needs to be big for spare to exist on it (which is a problem for the mechanic as a whole, only so many common creatures can be big) and that then also means that an opponent is likely to chump it. You'll want to pair with other bigger threats to stop them prioritising it immediately; but; well, you're clearly playing a big-green-creatures deck, so that's hardly likely to be a hard issue.

The reward is nice, potentially game shatteringly good if you can cheat the right creature into play. But it's also a lot harder to get it to go off if the opponent is half-smart. So it's nicely skill testing for an opponent. While flavourwise the mirror of "One creature back to hand, one from hand into play" is very pleasing.

All up, I like this particular use of spare.

On Resolute Elf:

Curious, I did a search for Elves that have a p/t equal to or greater than 3/4. It turns out there are 26 of them. Granted, a number of them are on beast mounts, are in groups, or are Legendary. But some are not. Golgari Findbroker seems like a poster child for "This is fine."

Interesting. A bit bigger than an elf would usually be though - an elf bigger than a wooly mammoth; slghtly odd flavour.

But it's actually secretly sometimes an Elvish Piper which seems nifty.
