My comprehensive rewrite, if I ever got around to finishing it, would probably change it into :6::g::g:, no pitch, exile your graveyard and create a 1/1 black and green worm token for each card exiled this way.

Dunno if it's desirable to instead try to keep something of the functionality. But it would probably be best for it to be Pitch Creeping Renaissance rather than Pitch Praetor's Counsel. That would be my first move.

With the change to The Verdant Nimbus invocation I'm wondering if waterfall can come off of the banlist.

We have a few lands that can make waterfall into super ramp but no more locking creature decks out with spearland on turn 2 and no more tutoring out grafdigger's cages against combo either. Well, that second part can still happen but it's vulnerable to refused arcana shenanigans.

Sure, but we have the world's most insane Sylvan Scrying variant in Trailblaze. The only thing that makes it not all that great is the lack of key utility lands. While there's a lot of them that help you survive, it's difficult to find ones that win the game, so you need something to pump all your mana into.
One of the bigger nerfs to Waterfall is probably actually the rules change to land drops though, I don't think you can infinitely replay two Waterfalls off off each other assuming a bounce outlet (or sac outlet, given a Crucible effect.)

As an aside, Epithet of Seasons is colorless.

If all are in favor, I'll change Perilous Secret to and ban Life Amidst Ruin in NGAC Eternal. (And also fix Epithet of Seasons.)

Edit: The name of the set, Stormfront, is also changing to Valkyries' Chosen with the new set code [VKC].

Okay, Waterfall will be unbanned in the next update. I look forward to seeing how you guys break the format with it.

Probably with like, candoli but I'm not sure. It's much less obvious now.

Hold at bay and Hold at bay have the same name. Cockatrice only seems to recognize the WOTC version.

I noticed a few oddities in the 5WD cards while going through them, so I decided to brave the xml a bit:

Werewolf Hunter [R15], Tormenting Voice [R15], Niricon Skirmisher [ONE], Demoncult Idol [ARH], Coltrorr Charm [5WD], Channel the Maws [5WD], and Aldair Eamon, Scion of the Seal [COS] are in the xml twice as duplicate entries of the same set.
Sparksigil Apprentice [STS, VLT], Pacifism [TAR, UND] Oakenform [SGT, BLI/R15], and Meditation [NM3, CAT] are in the xml twice as part of different sets.

There are two different cards named Waterwhelm, in ASC and in VKC.

There are two different cards named Voice of Unity, in STS and CAT.

Rampaging Slagkite is listed as common, should be rare.

Null Echoes from 5WD is missing from the xml:

Code:
<card>
<name>Null Echoes</name>
<set rarity="R">5WD</set>
<color>R</color>
<manacost>1RR</manacost>
<cmc>3</cmc>
<type>Instant</type>
<tablerow>3</tablerow>
<text>Copy target instant or sorcery spell. You may choose new targets for it.
Mergeback — {3}{R}{R}, Put Null Echoes from your graveyard on the bottom of your library: Copy target instant or sorcery spell, or triggered or activated ability. You may choose new targets for that spell or ability.</text>
</card>


There are two different cards named Mysterious Disappearance, in COV and VEL.

Morasol Flies is a Creature - Instant, should probably be Creature - Insect.

There appears to be an errant "ee" after the color tags in the entry of Intrepid Messenger.

There are two different cards named Hoard, in BST and ENT.

There are two different cards named Fill the Grave in NM3. The aura should be Licence to Kill [NM3] due to License to Kill [COV].

There are two different cards named Edict of Solitude, in VER and VLT. The VER one also missed Enchant creature

Drifting Meadow [POP] is missing rarity data (common).

Cauldron Dweller [WOM] has its rarity data in the color tag rather than the set tag.

Autograph Elemental [NM3] is misnamed Aether Transmuter.

Don't apologize. That's a seriously good eye for detail and you've been amazingly helpful.
