Card of the Day - Machina Serpent

Today's card features a new mechanic called Unaligned.  Unaligned spells may only be cast with colorless mana.  See if you can come up with any good designs for this mechanic!

Edit: 3rd Ability's redundancy fixed.


  1. Split the Difference 5
    Draws X cards, where X is the number of basic
    land types you control. Then destroy X target creatures, deal X damage to target player, return X target non-creature cards from your graveyard to your hand and exile X target artifacts or enchantments.
    Remove ~this card~ from the game.

  2. Ooh! That's a tricky one. Cause you'd need to play with basics and have extra colorless mana floating around. I like!

  3. Shawn: there's already a keyword mechanic for the basic land-type effect you described called "Domain."

    I like the idea of an Unaligned mechanic. Maybe a graphical representation in the mana cost instead of a keyword, though.

    This card itself is pretty cool, too. It has a lot of utility if you have the means to play it.

  4. For the 3rd ability, you don't need to qualify X. When a card references a variable value, if that value was already defined by an effect or a cost, it doesn't need to be defined again. ie:
