Orchard Fire-
Enchantment
At the beginning of your upkeep, Orchard Fire deals 1 damage to each player.
, sacrifice Orchard Fire: Create a Food token.
As the flames consumed his family's estate, Temmet scrambled to save one last bushel.

I had a dream that Useless ran a contest where this was an appropriate submission but then the contest didn't exist so I'm posting it here instead.

So did you win the contest before you realized it didn't exist?

I woke up before grades were posted, but because it's not real I'm the only entrant so I guess I won by default.

It's more aesthetic for stuff like this to trigger on the relevant player's upkeep, but that creates one more stop on MTGA, so it's impossible to know if it's good or not,

I can now unironically say something like "Famous youtubers have dreams about me!"

:V

btw, I like the idea of the card! Although paying 4 mana and sacrificing an enchantment merely to gain 3 life seems like too much of a price to me."

What if I had the same dream but I slept in late enough to win the contest?

yeah I could go either way but I since there's a bail clause liked the idea of all the damage happening simultaneously.

oh, yeah, no, the goal isn't to gain life. it's basically an escape clause if you find yourself behind on the race and need to change gears.

well, you can phrase it like that if you want, but in the end of the day, it's 4 mana and a permanent for 3 life

Kind of like how you might die to your own Phyrexian Arena but not to your own Underworld Connections


Riots - :r:
Enchantment
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may have ~ deal 2 damage to each opponent and 4 damage to you.

yes, I agree, if you are running this card to gain life, then it is very inefficient for that purpose.

that is not why you run this card, though.

This is unironically what happened in ancient Greece and is what inspired the writing of such timeless stories as the Iliad.

oh I see
so the sacrifice is supposed to be the payoff in itself, okay

still feels kinda weak
compared to something like Curse of the Pierced Heart or even Triton Shorestalker

UselessCommon asked him to. And I'm not even sure if you should technically count it as that.

it's a green lifegain spell that you use a red card to cast.
