This thread is for discussion of this week's Savor the Flavor, which goes live Wednesday on magicthegathering.com.
As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing.

Black...5. Psychic Therapy (Like blue, but for a way smaller fee, and with no warranty—or Eternal Sunshine style, for when you just want to forget all about your ex. I do think people would pay for this if it were available.)
I think a great use for white magic would be to command the loyalty of one's children.
Definitely a good letter to answer, but not enough depth! Really, I just have one complaint:Red = LoveSure Green probably holds primary responsibility for... you know... the mechanical element. But Red is the color of passion and intense emotion. So pretty much anything having to do with love would be Red magic! Red always gets this awful "Blarg, Smash Stuff" reputation, and sure Rage is the most relevant thing in Red's pie when it comes to war, but I think in times of peace you'd see way less red for demolition and explosions and way more for candlelit dinners and romantic rendezvous.
(Late to the thread because the forum is not friends with my browser.)Dear Creative, Please please please touch on love being red-aligned in a future set.
Black-Red: Burlesque. (That Rakdos was the guild of theatre was absolutely awesome and way underemphasized).
