Rotglove Worshiper is just a fun card. It seems a little overpowered at 9/7? Maybe a 6/6? But I do see why you picked numbers higher. I like that it frees up deck building space. You can go ahead and try out some of those cards you've been meaning to try because if they aren't working out or you need something bigger you can just sac them. I'm asuming Rotglove is rare? Or at least a first pick uncommon?

I am very surprised that Voidcaller isn't a think.

Make it 'sacrifice two other creatures', you need someone to perform the ritual

I like spell armor, but that reminder text could overwhelm people. Giving the target of the spell armor card hexproof until end of turn would leverage knowledge of hexproof to get the idea across.

Yeah I posted that mechanic in one of Shaz's contests that way where it just granted hexproof and he said it was whack how a keyword was granting another keyword and I kinda agree with him

I thought I'd seen it previously on the forum. Then I looked at the name and realised I must have heard it while playing starcraft 2 or heroes of the storm

For RWB I feel like it would be more fitting if it only shut down mana abilities instead.
Although it would be really niche.

Sometimes it's because they don't go on the stack, like with Stifle and such (where it's reminder text), the rest of the time it's mostly because it would enable mana denial strategies, which are considered unfun. That's mostly in the cases where it can hit lands though (see Pithing Needle vs. Phyrexian Revoker.)

I would jam that all day long in Oloro control. If it weren't for the fact that it can't remove planeswalkers, I would concerned about the fact that it's otherwise strictly better than Planar Cleansing.

Incense Burner

: Add to your mana pool. If that mana is spent on a creature spell, it gains haste. Incense Burner deals 3 damage to you.
The shamans of the Burning-Tree have little patience for those who cannot stomach the smolder of their ancient remedies.

Cosmic Convergence

Choose two —
• Create a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying.
• Create a 4/4 blue Wizard creature token with hexproof.
• Create a 4/4 black Demon creature token with menace.

I was gonna make this mythic, but apparently 20 points of power for 10 mana is rare these days.

That's pretty cute, and a good use of entwine, but all those different tokens will be a pain to keep track of.

YOU GUYS I GOT IT

AN ELEGANT AND BALANCED MANA DORK THAT ALLOWS ME TO ATTACK WITH MY PHYREXIAN SLULGORGER ON TURN 2

Tattermunge Troublemaker
Creature — Goblin Rogue Shaman (R)
: Add .
All other creatures have haste.
Gozruk never did fit in with the crowd. Unless that crowd was weilding torches.
1/1

See? It's got a meaningful drawback this time!

Not sure if it's proper wording to have the "All" in there. Concordant Crossroads says yes, Godhead of Awe says no. I played it safe and left it in there.

P.S. I really wish they'd made the wording be "Produce ." instead of "Add ."
