Ok, here goes: My ultimate goal is to work at WotC, R&D, designing Magic. To that end, any and every card I make, any and every card I post here, fits this Challenge. However, true to form, I'm gonna Calvin out* and present the ultimate in DFC Un- design. Something this unprecedented would obviously have to be , and it'll be my job to not only get it into the next scheduled Un- set after my hiring, but also to make it mechanically relevant! So, in the future, if you ever open a pack, and find this in the rare slot, know that I've made it:
No, you're not imagining things, this IS a DFC where the back of the card is both sides. Yes, I'm totally serious about this. When I make a joke, I'm like The Joker: deadly serious about my comedy.
*From Calvin and Hobbs, to Calvin out is to set yourself an impossible goal, thereby dooming yourself to almost certain failure.[/p
If you would draw a card, instead Scry 1, then draw a card.
I made this drum-smacking wizard creature that can fizzle your own spells to pump himself, and then later you can get those fizzled spells back by saccing him.
Creatures you control gain indestructible until end of turn.
See Another Day
Aftermath (Cast this spell only from your graveyard. Then exile it.)
As an additional cost to cast this spell, tap three untapped creatures you control.
Draw three cards.
I'm actually surprised "Live" isn't taken as a split card name. I went through a number of designs before I ultimately settled on something inspired by Unbreakable Formation and Shared Discovery. For the Aftermath half decided to increase the cost slightly while lowering the creature requirement as Battalion numbers (attack with 3) seems more intuitive and lets you do the play pattern of one drop -> two drop token maker -> this card, so in the worst case scenario it's a somewhat inefficient card draw. Ideally what makes decks (likely token or flyers decks) slot this card is the fact it's extremely flexible and does multiple things they'd want on one card.
Also, I am a physics student and contrary to my former expectations, I... do not really like it. That is reflected in the flavor text.
The adventure part also shows my pursuit of inner peace in this crazy pandemic world of hatred, greed and careerism...
