Whenever a wall is destroyed, draw a card and place a +1/+1 counter on IVHorseman

Why is this funny. Pls explain.
Then I shall make card.
IVhorseman tried to jump a concrete wall once and it fell on him. He was in a wheelchair for some time. Also, he is our resident herbologist, so his creature should be 4/20, as in pot day.

"When IVHorseman destroys a Wall, licks a toilet bowl, or smashes a junior forum member's hope, add a +2/+1 counter to him.

The highly-demanded:

And other:

Others can be found here.
80 and counting (current count = 103, only ~80 online, some unfinished).



The Apocalypse Spells were originally going to be Mythic. All of them. But since it's generally accepted to be 15 mythics a set, and there's already 12, I'm keeping it an option. Planeswalkers have also been revised, with Colette getting the most changes (a completely new card) and Warhead and Zahru getting minor changes. Natalya and Piltogg are almost untouched.

I've decided to use the 2015-onwards style, and am expecting that all cards will be designed to that specification. So far, I'm tending towards a minor block (one large set and one small set, 455 cards, like Lorwyn) but if every faction (or alignment) has ~30 cards (like Return to Ravnica) that's 480-510 cards then and there (10 dual-coloured pairs (ie. 'minor'/non-central factions like M-Throne, Polonia, etc), 5 mono colours (ie. 'major'/central factions like Assyria, Scythia, etc), Immortals (phyrexian), possibly artefacts), so we might have to do a full block (Large-Small-Small, 640 cards, like Theros). If worst comes to worst, we'll do a large block (Large-Small-Large, 725 cards, like the Tarkir block), but that's a lot of cards. (Remember: Small set = 185 cards, Large set = 270 cards)

Still working on the STD cycle. All comments/recommendations for mechanics/faction play theme are welcome.
Also White is now the 'Yellow Purity' colour, and Black has Peach undercurrents. Pink is Anti-Brikwars, and Purple is Eldritch (more on that later).

Mechanics so far:
Spoiler
Show
Deliver <number> (When this card deals damage to a player, you may put a nonland permanent with converted mana cost <number> or less from your hand onto the battlefield tapped.) - Royal Quadrarian Post (Yes, I did my faction first. Deal with it.)
Research <number> (Name a card type. Look at the top <number> cards of your library. You may reveal a card that is the named type and put it in your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.) - Trattoria
Redshirt <cost> (Change the target of a single attack, spell or ability targeting this creature to another non-artifact creature you control. Tap both creatures.) - Open to all heroes.
Alignments so far:
Spoiler
Show
W (white, order): Assyria (splash green)
U (blue, knowledge): Trattoria (splash white), Bavaria (splash black?)
B (black, domination): Scythia (splash red), Mafia (possibly)
R (red, might): Akkadia (splash black)
G (green, growth): Medivo
W/U: Trattoria
W/B: Briktopia, Lux
W/R: M-Throne
W/G: Assyria
U/B: Luchardsko, Lawyers, Bavaria?
U/R: Quadraria
U/G: Android Nation & other assorted robots
B/R: Scythia, Akkadia
B/G: 45th Union, Peaches (generally)
R/G: Polonia

You don't consider immortals really nasty eldritch abominations? Even then, I'm not saying pure colorless - I'm saying phyrexian mana. Like so:

That's what I'm going with. I should have specified.
I'll add Emeria, but I'm trying to fit all the dual-colours first before we get into shards and wedges. They may get shoehorned into an uncomfortable position. But then again, we've also got Frostborne (Temur) and USA (Jeskai) requested, so we might get a full (minor) wedge cycle.

Currently, I'm thinking (set wise) of Set 1 being groundwork (here are the brikwarriors, they fight a lot). Set 2 introduces immortals (here are the immortals, they like fighting too. But everyone ganged up on them). Set 3 has the apocalypse/ragnablok/whatever (the immortals didn't like being ganged up on, so they started the apocalypse(s)). Thus Set 1 has all the basics (small faction groups, basic troop types, etc), Set 2 has Immortals and Heroes (large Immortal contingency, faction reinforcements, faction champions (like Dragon's Maze)), Set 3 has Battleship Warfare (like Rise of the Eldrazi and (to a lesser extent) Dragons of Tarkir) - get your big things asap. Also more faction reinforcements, etc. All Super-Heavies, Inspired and Apocalypse cards go here). Sort of like the Theros block outline, if you think about it.

I've managed to fill almost all, just missing some of the shards. I'm surprised there were no candidates for Grixis.

Also made some new set symbols:

Quantum's lovely Dread Pirate 2x2

Image
Symbol for "Heroes and Immortals"

Image
Symbol for "Ragnablock"

I'm not sure about the Immortal symbol - feels a bit crowded - but they'll do for now.

We must create a board wipe card called "Overlution" as a red black card.
Ask now what I'm doing, even for me :mystery:
