A heart-shaped mana symbol—I call it “moe mana.” As I continue to create new anime-themed mechanics to include in my anime MTG cards I wanted to make some kind of “moe” mechanic, and I happened upon the opposite of Phyrexian mana.
However, I’ve run into a bit of a snag on…
That’s an interesting question. How about phrasing it like this: how much life would I give an opponent to draw a card for free? It’s like the cantrip question of how much more would a card cost if you added “and draw a card” to the end of it.
In response to the Battlefield Thaumaturge/Curse of the Swine question: Rule 107.3b states that the cost of X can be reduced to 0 or less through cost reduction effects. The value of X is the number of targets, the player just doesn't pay for it.
107.3b. If a player is casting a spell that has an X in its mana cost, the value of X isn’t defined by the text of that spell, and an effect lets that player cast that spell while paying neither its mana cost nor an alternative cost that includes X, then the only legal choice for X is 0. This doesn’t apply to effects that only reduce a cost, even if they reduce it to zero. See rule 601, “Casting Spells.”
Sure, if you’re casting it from your hand, you can piggify all the things for UU. If you’re casting it off of Cascade or some other ability that lets you cast it without paying its mana cost, then X has to be 0, and there is no bacon.
Magic 2015 was supposed to introduce the new card frame, but Conspiracy is coming out before Magic 2015 and at least this one card uses the new Beleren font (I can’t miss that serif’d “F” anywhere). So that’s a little weird.
Isn’t dack fayden Izzet colors in storyline though? It says so in Duels of the planeswalkers 2014 I think.
If we’re talking about DotP, then I’m not so sure. Could that mean, in the future that Nissa is going to be Green/Black?
I know Dack was R/U in the comics, but did he stay that way until the end of the arc? Even then, WotC might introduce something upon him that might make him U/B.
Almost all planeswalker characters dip into 2 or 3 colours, Dack is very UR, could be B if he’s pushed to I’d imagine.
Okay, this makes sense. I remember in Agents of Artifice, Jace had to call upon what seemed to be like white mana to heal up Baltrice in a conflict. He also did several things that are very black in that novel. Jace also does some very green things (fighting a two-headed giant with help from the crowd) and red things (letting emotions wash over himself and finding power in them).
Real people are usually like this too - well rounded with leanings to particular colors.
If previous trends of PW’s hold true, he’s either gonna be UR or UB. Venser has the White outline on the left side and Kiora has Green. Also, since the outline isn’t gold, like on Nicol Bolas, he’s most likely dual colored
Good point about Bolas and other colors:
"Planeswalker - Dack" (because of templating)
Unknown loyalty cost
Unknown mana cost
Unknown starting loyalty
Unknown collector number (and therefore no guess to what the other color might be)
