Xenagos Awesome mechanic! Splice from the graveyard opens up a lot of flexibility, I feel. This is the closest functioning design I've seen to a mechanic-project I've been trying to make work forever, so thanks for the inspo to go back and take another swing at it
I agree Function would run into the same pitfall as Arcane. But I'm curious, why didn't you make it enhance instant or sorcery, a la splice from MH1 (e.g. Everdream)?
Shiva, Lady of Frost Legendary Enchantment Creature — God Flying As long as your devotion to blue is less than five, ~ isn't a creature. Creatures your opponents control enter the battlefield tapped and don't untap during their controller's next untap step. When ~ is put into a graveyard from anywhere, its owner shuffles their graveyard into their library.

attaturk I appreciate the compliment I am rather proud of the mechanic idea. It definitely crossed my mind to put Enhance instant or sorcery, but a combination of it not fitting the MSE template and me wanting slightly different flavor diverted me.
