So I'm not in the bracket to participate this round in Rag's contest, but I thought I'd make a card for it anyway

criteria is make a card with a creature type in a color not generally associated with that creature type

I really like green goblins (not the spider-man kind, that scene where he gets all injected out freaked the **** out of me when i was a kid) but that's been done before so hmmm

maybe white elves? eh that was done in shadowmoor too…

hmm

Lava Lurker
Creature — Leviathan (R)
When Lava Lurker enters the battlefield, it deals 4 damage to target creature.
When Lava Lurker leaves the battlefield, it deals 8 damage to target creature.
4/8

I could go for a red leviathan that lives in the molten ocean of the earth's core. I like how the abilities match up with the P/T too- nice touch. Seems balanced. Aside from going super big though, I don't get the leviathan vibe. I guess it makes sense with the lavaness though.

Inspired by further thoughts on:

Gethyra, the Kiss of Death
Legendary Creature — Insect Shaman (M)
Hexproof, deathtouch
Whenever Gethyra, the Kiss of Death deals combat damage to a player, that player loses the game.
The Kelvori have a ritual in which, on the night before a wedding, an invitation is written to the bog queen and thrown into a nearby swamp. Failure to do so, they believe, will doom the bride to a sickly death.
1/1

When Nivmagus Mirrormancer enters the battlefield, create four 1/1 blue Illusion creature tokens with flying.

5/5

Inspired by Deranged Hermit and Lord of the Unreal. Intended for a Commander set, not Standard-legal.

Is the Bog Queen coming to weddings she was invited to ?
That'd be cool.

I think it's a shame that the mirrormancer's illusions are so small that most spells/abilities will kill them anyway -- seems like the illusion ability is a bit redundant.

Should it be an ETB rather than cast ability so you can't cheat it with Collected Company?

no.

also i felt like we progressed from woolly thoctar to Steel Leaf Champion

With designs like Demon of Catastrophes and Gigantosaurus, this Behemoth felt backward

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Petrification
Enchantment — Aura (U)
Enchant creature
If enchanted creature is an artifact, it gets +3/+3. Otherwise, it can't attack or block.
The stare of the basilisk, the eye of the gorgon, the breath of the cockatrice, the dark elf's arrow—all food for the golem's grit.

Mechanically, Petrification should be white. Red could pump an artifact creature, but it won't stop creatures from attacking. That's white's domain.

I think the idea is cute-ish. But I don't get why petrifying pumps artifact either.

Beyond mechanics, Petrification is not very red either. There's basilisk in green. Gorgon in black. It doesn't feel very red to freeze you in place over blowing you up.

presumably petrification makes you harder and so stronger if it doesn't kill you.
