Always wanted to see an uber vamp that ate bone marrow instead of blood. Seems like a logical step up.

Apropos of nothing, I would love to see a giant who uses a ballista as a crossbow.

I had an idea a while ago about a green faction that stood opposed to the light/dark dichotomy of white and black, something more in line with Zen Buddhist philosophies of the whole and the necessity of both. The problem is green is a piece of garbage for applicable philosophy given how they've never fully capitalized on its depths and dumbed it into "er-hur nature" and brainless savagery.

Similarly, I'd like to see a setting where Red views its anarchy and chaos as an inherent rejection of order and predetermination that INCLUDES black's love of order, it's need to be as zealous and hierarchical as white. Almost like Otaria, but not actually total garbage.

I could see that take on green working. Green is the color of conservatism, and the conservative mindset seems many forms of hardship as part of the natural order, to be endured instead of fought. That or just have the world's health rely on a cycle of death and rebirth that means rejecting death means rejecting new life. Same deal with some sort of karmic system.
Red black tends toward libertarian thinking- zero restrictions mean the biggest and baddest are free to subjugate others in pursuit of their own freedom.
Red white and perhaps red blue would be liberalism - Equal freedom for all, perhaps enforced through a central power, to achieve maximum total freedom.
Pure red and red green would reject either form of control system so that everybody has the same rights but probably not the ability to achieve their goals.

I'm begging you, don't come to me now.

Because I wouldn't be able to do justice to my love for you, and it would kill me.

EDIT: I actually made a non-MtG piece starting with those lines, so here's another one:

"Only fools don't learn from the winter."
