On NTC #048:

It also reminds me a lot of squadron hawk: in principle this having two forever is different to having four, but I imagine they play similarly. White probably wouldn't get the ability to recur a creature with power >1 I guess.

On NTC #048:

Black has been overrepresented, in general (though, oddly for multicolor, only appeared on the 5-color multicolor card.) I'll have to put a ban on Black to even things out for a little while. ;)

On NTC #048:

Oh yeah, "twin" works well. Now I want something like "Orpheus and/or Eurydice" but I can't quite get that together in a name :)

On NTC #048:

Green got basically the same thing with Howling Wolf / Skyshroud Sentinel / Nesting Wurm in Masques block. Red also got Embermage Goblin in the same set as Avarax, Screaming Seahawk, and Daru Cavalier. Yeah, this ability has been all over the map.

"Only two" is an interesting mechanic, potentially, but I agree that this card doesn't look like it particularly needs the "only two" treatment. But since it has it, and especially since jmg suggests this could be a cycle, I think the name should lean heavily into the "only two" thing. Twinned, Paired? Sibling? Bifurcated?

Let's try Tenacious Twin, type: Human Rogue. It could easily have a Zombie flavour but I like this take more.

Can we have a nonblack card next time? I don't like coming up with flavours for black cards.

­Endless Skeleton

On NTC #048:

So the main mechanic here seems sort of like it belongs in the Nether Shadow [Nether Spirit Nether Traitor Nether Rutabaga] cycle.

But actually since it's etb->hand rather than ltb; the matching cards are mostly red - Avarax Chandra's Firemaw - though every colour seems to get one ( Daru Cavalier, Screaming Seahawk ) except for green. Green gets a lot more hoop-jumping variants and "Fetch a named companion" but no fetch-an-exact-duplicate-on-etb. I don't think that's a limit, just none yet.

So I don't think the main mechanic actually helps me name it much. And the second is the annoying self-unsummon ability. Which is so very nearly a great combo with the first ability? But since you're limited to two in deck, only really lets you have a really expensive way to regenerate. "{4}{u}{b}: Your otherwise vanilla 2/3 turns out not to be dead after all. Feel proud."

Eh, in a set with a lot of ETB or LTB triggers, this could be sneakily more powerful.

I guess I'll stick with my first instinct. This is a spirit and we'll on-the-nose it as a Nether Blink

On NTC #048:

Welcome back to Name That Card! Has Magic done the 'only two cards' thing yet? This seems like a logical choice to me. Seems like cycle material, too.

But what's the name of this card? (and what's it's creature type?)?

On Ob Nixilis's Persecution:

Alex wins this week with Ob Nixillis' Persecution. See everybody in NTC #048!

On Ob Nixilis's Persecution:

So the pre-existing concepts for this kind of effect have names involving unpleasant dreams/visions, foolishness (as per Jack), fate unravelling, tyrrany, a parasite, and a couple of dudes who attack your mind. What I'm gathering is that there's space for lots of concepts here :) This one allows you a way to avoid the damage, at a steep cost.

My first thought is Wilful Ignorance, though that is quite similar to Jack's.

Alternatively, something with "Persecution" in, except... it needs something more... Ah, of course, put a name to it. Ob Nixilis's Persecution.
