#MTGMoxtober Day 12: Bones

 People have been casting bones to tell the future for a long time.  I wanted to give white an interesting way to draw cards. The play pattern on this seems like you would use it once and see the top two.  If you get a card, great!  If not, you know what the next one will be.  I can't be bothered to do the math on how many cards you get over X turns, but it's for sure more than 50% of the time.

#MTGMoxtober Day 11: Thief


This card had the most iterations of any I've done so far this year.  It started Black/Blue and used heist counters, then turned into black/red tiefling, then became an art thief, then became legendary, then could only play artifacts, then exiled graveyards instead of using heist counters.  What a journey.

#MTGMoxtober Day 9: Duel

 I thought it would be fun to have a minigame for a duel card. Who doesn't love a minigame?

#MTGMoxtober Day 8: Paranoia

 Commander card that reads:  "maybe just attack someone else."  Also:  Can we get Freeze as a keyword please?

#MTGMoxtober Day 7: Wax

 The first thing I thought of with wax was Madame Toussad's House of Wax.  I thought it would be fun to make a clone that copied abilities instead of the whole card.

#MTGMoxtober Day 5: Nightmare

 I was imagining what a Tamed Nightmare might look like, and I came up with this:

I like all those griffins and pegasi that grant flying when they attack, and I wanted to expand on that a bit.  I upped the p/t and added lifelink to the mix to make it more interesting.

#MTGMoxtober Day 4: Dream

 I wanted the dreamy theme to be a quasi-random effect that can be manipulated by how you build your deck.  This is a card where you will want to have a list of the cards in your library handy when you use it.

#MTGMoxtober Day 3: Pawn

 A simple minion who is used for nefarious purposes.  The true definition of a pawn.

#MTGMoxtober Day 2: Mystery

There is more than one way to make a Mystery card.  I toyed around with a few iterations, and found a neat idea. 

The rules for Mysteries are as follows:  

1. You start the game with a Mystery deck.  The first Mystery is turned face up as the game starts and you may solve the mystery on your turn if you meet the criteria.  When you do, you get the reward, you exile the Mystery and reveal the next one. 

2. You may solve more than one Mystery each turn, if you meet the criteria.

3. Once the Mystery deck is depleted, it is out of play for the rest of the game.

#MTGMoxtober Day 1: Rebirth


Let's start with a curse!  I wanted to make a "resurrect a player" card.  I like that you can cast this on yourself and just get a second chance, or cast it on someone about to die to gain control of that player forever.
