On Doppleganging:

For reminder text, "You may cast this as an instant by paying its deceit cost and returning an attacking or blocking creature you control to its owner's hand." seems like a clear template. Not strictly correct, but whatever. It's reminder text.

On Doppleganging:

This is a sorcery, so deceit needs a clause allowing it to be cast at instant speed in order for it to work.

On Rakdos Haranguer:

Red gets "random" enchantment removal from time to time. It's just that it normally affects the whole board.

On Rakdos Haranguer:

Red gets random, but it doesn't get to do anything it wants at random. Chaos Warp is famous for being way out of colour pie: it's a red way to get rid of enchantments. The fact that there's some randomness involved doesn't excuse it.

This is more borderline, because you don't get to choose a target.

On Rakdos Haranguer:

Eh, red does get random.

I'd word it this way instead, to feel a bit more red:

When ~ ETBs, you may choose to sacrifice it. If you do, target player sacrifices a random permanent.

But I don't think I'd want very much of this ability - it's too likely to end up as "My turn? Draw a card. Undo your turn. Attack for one. End turn."

On Rakdos Haranguer:

­Crack the Earth and Misguided Rage allow red to "get rid of enchantments" to the same extent as this. Well... okay, there the defender gets to choose a permanent... hmm. Capricious Efreet does allow this, but that has been deemed rather dubious in the colour pie also.

On Rakdos Haranguer:

I thought it was pretty cool when I first saw the ability, but Circeus does bring up a good point. In large quantities, this ability would be painful to play with and against. More often than not, I think this would lend to some very unfun games.

That said, I think you could get away with this as a keyword in a Magic set if the word was changed to a verb, and it was turned into a keyword action instead. That way, you could put a lot of variety into Malevolent, and not have it be so redundantly broken. For example:

Malevolent LD
Destroy target land, then Malevolent (Target player sacrifices a permanent at random.)

Get what I'm saying? Altering how it gets used can give the keyword more legs, and give it a chance to appear on more and different cards.

That said... maybe it's still not appropriate for Rakdos? I mean, Populate appears on 14 cards in RtR block. I assume all guild abilities should be on par with that number in a block. Is Malevolent on 14 cards too many? I don't know.

(And on a separate side note... is it appropriate that it can get rid of enchantments? Another question that I don't got a good answer for.)

On Rakdos Haranguer:

This needs to be sorcery speed only, at the very least. I also can't see this being on multiple commons. This is not a mechanic, this is a singleton effect.

On Ironhoof Raiders:

You need to insert the URL of the actual image you want to use. in this case, rather than just .

On Collective Growth:

That is not a common effect, and at this cost, it is not a instant.
