Hey there, Beaconeers!
We got a lot done this episode regarding Castmire. We talked about the color combinations, draft archetypes, and mechanics for each color. Our first pass ended up with these pairings:
Haunt creatures (WBG)
Trespass spells (URB)
UW: artifact matters or tempo (detain)
RU: artifact matters (red sacrifice, blue gets more)
RB: Startle Trespass
UR: Lands-matter gate/trespass?
UG: Colorless-matters? (gates+artifacts)
WB: Haunt + Startle = ???
WG: Haunt + Investigate = ??? defender matters value-creatures?
UB: Nightmares/horrors/value control?
RG: Ramp gates
BG: Haunt recursion
WR: (go wide?)
We are recording on Sunday this week, so the challenges will be due on Sunday the 18th, by 8pm.
Our design challenges for next week are:
- Design a white common that gains life, but without lifelink.
- Design a black common that is a helpful aura.
- Design a rare signpost card for one of the archetypes we talked about on the episode.
