Important context

The cards in this set are not meant to form a coherent whole. Most of them are either A) singleton/small sets meant to feature one potential guild mechanic B) cycles that may or may not be guild-based C) random cards connected to one or another potential theme that was floated for the set.


Tri-color themes

I'm noticing that there are certain clustering themes in my designs, and wondering if these can't be spun out somewhat.

­Colorless creatures is clearly a subtheme in the esper guilds. These guilds seem directly interested in the Kavnican colorless populace, either to teach and guide it (Suiroza), manipulate it (Rimid), or crush it (Zhavi).

­Fate matters seems to be a theme or subtheme of the Bant guilds, this is either negative (Suiroza) or positive (Kisme, Aynsele).

For the Jund guilds, a thread seems to be "power matters", either increasing yours (Gilrog) or gaining advantages from being bigger (Sokdar), this may be an indication that Grohm still wants this as an element of its mechanic.

I'm not clear about the Grixis and Naya guilds want to have as themes. It may be especially relevant to look at each shard's enemy color guild (the Tezzi ans Sorba in this case) for guidance, but neither current mechanics are very helpful there. The sorba mechanic (Dauntless) might, it turns out, want to be in {g/r}...

Currently, what I believe are my best designs for each guild. A significant issue is that somewhat too many of them are strictly creature mechanics. ­

Target opponent reveals their hand. You choose a nonland card from it and exile that card.
Creature – Vampire
Thoughtriding Prefect is colorless.
When Thoughtriding Prefect enters the battlefield, if you control more colorless creature than target opponent, that player mills four cards.
If a player would draw a card except the first one they draw in their draw step each turn, that player mills two cards instead.
{3}{u}, Sacrifice Mind Blanketing: dDraw two cards.
Each player mills two cards.
Draw a card for each nonland card put into a graveyard this way.

Voidmind — As an additional cost to cast Reminiscent Whispers, turn a creature you control face down.
For each colorless creature on the battlefield, target player mills two cards.

On Oracle of Wyldwood:

This is depressing

On Hungry Hungry Horsefly:

I thought this was a spin on Deepcavern Imp. It's rather wordy for a common...

On Hungry Hungry Horsefly:

The get out of it is just a cute bonus idea. The card's really just a variant idea on Bloodrage Brawler, and while it's not necessarily a fit for any deck, i.d do fine in Suvnica, where monoblack has a self-mill theme, and the {r/b} mechanic activates in the graveyard.

On Hungry Hungry Horsefly:

Hmmmm.. Flicker-bait :)

Seems like a reasonable aggro card. The real problem seems to be that you can't actually take advantage of the get-out clause until your fourth mana, when you'll probably have gone hellbent anyway.

On Halos of the Premissants:

Didn't want two mythics that were big tokenmayers

On Voidmind Squad:

THIS should do it.

On Army of the Mindless:

Nevermind that. It's literally f'cking Ghastly Conscription.

On Army of the Mindless:

reward/draftaround rare for the black self-mill deck

On Frantic Glances:

I had already turned it into a 1U spell. I have too many cantrips, though, but this still works well as a cheap spell for Tezzi (or even the RImid self-mill deck).

On Frantic Glances:

Cute, though I think a little overcosted - U would be ok. Gives no card advantage, doesn't do anything when you don't have a creature, and in the off chance that you like the top card of your library all other cards are wasted.

Could be a {1}{u} with a cantrip at the end, I think.
