Ngasama is a world of labyrinths - mighty wizards here like to build massive stone mazes full of monsters and deadly traps to make sure greedy adventurers won't take their treasures. However, the robberies happen surprisingly often - which makes other wizards to try even harder to protect their treasures.

 R 
Instant – Trap
If an opponent tapped all the lands they control for mana this turn, you may pay rather than pay this spell's mana cost.
Tap target creature. You gain life equal to its power and it deals damage equal to its controller equal to its toughness. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.

On Flamekin Explorers:

Source

As far as DFC-designs go this one doesn't seem to make particularly good use of that tool. A simple threshold mechanic counting the number of counters would have done a lot of this.

On Karmic Sun Trap:
On Holding Cells:
On Hookhand Ambusher:

Source

Definitely seems like a Minotaur trapping people in a labyrinth.

On Gulhyu's Arbalesters:

Source

The first draft archetype uncommon is... just full of keyword abilities, isn't it?

On Flush Out:

Source

Very much top-down.

On Keeper of the Pewter Bell:

Source

Flash tribal with this flavor establishes another theme for the maze keepers.

On Seep Through Walls:

Source

  • "other" >> "another"

This whole set from the beginning description on reminded me of Xerex. This flavor text brings that feeling back hard.

On Baloth Lair:

Source

My first contribution to Collaborative Create-a-Booster.

I made some mistakes here - I falsely remembered the text on a card added to the booster pack earlier and made the Chamber mechanics a little more complicated than strictly necessary. In the spirit of Tribute I'm going to stick with it for now.

High complexity common, though considering I also accidentally based the design on an existing rare at first, I'm happy enough with this imperfect pile of mechanics. :)

On Earthbound Imp:

Source

A little heavy on the black mana.
