Card of the Day - Ka-Mohari, WIsh Lord

This guy started in my head as a mono-blue 5/6 for 5UU that drew you two cards each turn. Strong, but kind of boring. I added the rider "Instant spells you cast cost 2 less" so you have some way of casting all the new cards you get. I changed him to Black/Blue and added the life loss to balance out the cost reduction, as well as letting commander players play a Juzam Djinn if they felt so inclined.

After looking through Gatherer and seeing some recent Djinni from Khans of Tarkir, namely the Jeskai clan, I decided to change the word "Instant" to "Noncreature". The cost reduction being for "noncreatures" is very Jeskai. Those monks sure do love their prowess.

I didn't set out to make a 4 color commander, but I think he turned out pretty well, nonetheless. Let me know what you think either here or in the /r/custommagic subreddit.

Card of the Day - Essence Harvest

Since Frostmere has the Espionage keyword, I wanted each color to have a way to use all the cards that are getting milled.  These cards are subpar as maindeck cards in a draft, but can possibly be quite useful if the opponent is playing an Espionage-heavy deck.

Essence Harvest, for example, gives you a ton of tokens if you've already been milled a bit.  It's also useful late in a game to break a board stall.

Card of the Day - Lucky Break

Cards are inspired from myriad sources.  This one was inspired by a mash-up of Magic and Cards Against Humanity, where the question was: How did I lose my virginity?
