Rusecharm Nyx
Creature - Faerie Wizard
Flying
When Rusecharm Nyx enters the battlefield, another target creature loses all abilities and becomes 1/1 for as long as you control Rusecharm Nyx.
2/1


Sort of unoriginal, since it's a lot like a smaller Dungeon Geists.  But it fits the theme of the second set of the Eldangard block quite nicely.  The first set revolved around tokens, and the second set has a "vanilla matters" subtheme that intertwines with it.  Green, White and Red generally like vanilla creatures. Blue and Black don't exactly hate them, but they interact with the theme in a generally negative way.  Like this!

 Added bonus: Once it gets flavor text (or I give up and print it as-is), this marks the completion of Stormfront!  The previous card in the "Rare small blue creature" slot was cut from the set at the last minute (I just wasn't happy with it) and I had to find a replacement.  I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.

This definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.
I was referring to the painting The Treachery of Images.
I know.
I want the creature to gain Flying.

Flying would be good symmetry... but I'm not sure it makes much sense for the flavor of faerie trickery (why would they give their victims flight?), and then it loses the vanilla-matters theme (even though Blue doesn't interact with it much).

The art has wings though. Evyone knows you can't change the art so you'll just have to change the card.
I like it by the way.
The art decipts the faerie though, so that's not a problem. I just want the opponent to be able to trade the humiliated creature with the faerie.

I think Mown's first comment threw me off. Damn flying actually makes this really powerful. Sorry I made your thread extra zany.
Did that 'School' set you were working on get Nixed?

Ah yes, Sagathia is still in the works.  I was a bit too eager in starting it though, with the Eldangard block still unfinished.  I've got set 1 completed and "printed" (see below), set 2 sealed and soon to be delivered, and set 3... has hit a rough patch.  Just needs some deconstruction while I figure out how to refine the set themes.

Of course every once in a while I'll still poke around Sagathia, just to mess around with top-down design and hybrid mana and stuff.  I might post more from it soon.
