CCDD 073015—Assemble Notions

Cool Card Design of the Day
7/30/2015 - A card inspired by MaRo's latest article on blue in the color pie. A mill card that doesn't do nothing on its own.


  1. I like it, but I worry about the tracking issues. We've never seen this kind of effect with "for as long as they remain exiled" that didn't have a permanent to track the cards with except for one card where it was a single card (Praetor's Grasp).

    Maybe this wants to be an Enchantment?

  2. I really want the colorless mana clause here but that probably bumps this closer to rare.

    Also I agree that this really wants to be an enchantment or creature.

  3. It is a pretty clean design as a creature.

    Thought Police (uncommon)
    Creature - Human Wizard
    When NAME enters the battlefield, target player exiles the top four cards of his or her library.
    You may cast instant and sorcery cards exiled by NAME.

    1. I like that a lot more. Not only is it more trackable, it provides the opponent with a straightforward way to stop the effect (interact with it), and it's also Blinkable / Rite of Replicationable.

  4. Agreed. A permanent would be better, and Thought Police is pretty sweet.
