Cool Card Design of the Day
4/22/2014 - This is a silly flavor expression for this design, but I couldn't resist.

  1. This is really cool! I'm constantly impressed by how many undiscovered simple designs Magic has left.

    1. Tech for the Relentless Rats EDH mirror maybe...

    2. Looks to me like it could be used by Griefers to fill their decks with their friends' favorite cards. It's meaner than regular discard in that sense, more "I planned this specifically to hurt you." I kind of think it should only have one black mana symbol in its cost so that it's easier to run in a multicolor deck designed to hit more targets.

    3. I guess I can kind of imagine someone thinking that maybe that was an idea... I still have a hard time with it.

      I think if this idea was pursued long enough, the end result would be something very similar to Cabal Therapy.

  3. I can't help but feel the only way this card would tend to really work is on opening hands. But it's probably way too dangerous for something that can be played that early, right?

  4. oh hint of insanity... you need more than a hint to run it

  5. This card is like a kind of humor, right? Like the person pointing out a fault in others often has that fault himself?

    1. That would be excellent flavor (esp for black) for a serious version of this card.

      The joke for this art and title is that sometimes people appear at the same event wearing the same outfit and both hate the other for it.

  6. A riff that might hit more often:

    Each other player sacrifices each creature they control that has the same name as a creature you control.

    1. Maybe we could take this and the above design and make for a "Black Balance?" Triumph of Individuality or something.
