Hey everybody, welcome back for Ominous Designs Episode 124 (video here). This week, for the first time in about a month we’re straying away from the plane of Innistrad, and back to simpler designs.
I am mostly tempted to call it a low power, in the realm of multi-color lands like Mana Confluence – which I’m now realizing is also a cousin in name.
It’s only upside is to be able to get any color, untapped, for a front cost of 2 life, with a major downside of forcing you to play all sorts of basic lands in your mana base.
This one came to me with the idea of a flock of birds, something like a 1/4 flying. I am a bit afraid to give a flying token producer any attack so I tuned the design down to a durdle-y defender that could be fun to play in a limited control deck.
0/5 for 5 is pretty bad in terms of defensive power but if you can afford it, you have yourself a good attack deterrent, especially if you can already threaten to race with a bunch of other blue flyiers. I definitely didn’t push the envelope on that one, but if it gets there it should be fun to play with.
That’s it! Straight forward, yes? This one is a classic case of cards being nice and fun, and having little idea of their exact power level… Which honestly is still the part I enjoy the most anyways, coming up with the creative designs. Hope you enjoyed, I am now off to publish all this content online and tell you
Have a good one and see you next week!
