Jessie's 24 Hour - Fear Itself

Create a non-black card themed somehow around "Fear".

Mechanically, flavorfully, I don't really care - just make it revolve around fear somehow. It might be causing fear, facing fear, succumbing to fear, maybe even studying fear.

Ready? GO!
Flavor:

I wanted to think as "out of the box" as I could think (slightly contradictory I know). I took a theme from one of the Magic: the Gathering books I read, and converted it to a card. Enjoy!


Workspace:

Tal's Schism --
Enchantment (R)

, Tap X untapped creatures you control: Gain control of target creature if X is greater than the amount of creatures that creature's controller controls.

Nothing can deny the power of Tal. We will cleanse you of your imperfections whether you come with us, or we steal you away.


Placeholder:

Hulk Smash! --
Enchantment (R)

:T:: Flip target table.

Yeah it's a placeholder...

Altimis, that placeholder is a thing of glory and beauty. That was the funniest thing I've seen all day.
Grip of Paranoia
Sorcery U
Untap target creature you don’t control and gain control of it until end of turn. That creature gains haste until end of turn and fights another target creature you don’t control. (Each deals damage equal to its power to the other.)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's become a great joke near the end of many EDH games...

Trepidation Matrix
Artifact (R)
: Creatures you control gain intimidate until end of turn. (Each can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a color with it.)

 
Flavor

Just an idea for something that "makes things fearful/frightening."  

I made the name from:
trepidationA feeling of fear or agitation about something that may happen (The idea here being the "combat phase" about to happen)
matrixan environment or material in which something develops (my thoughts here were from myr matrix which makes myrs)

So, yeah... it's a machine that "makes" fear happen

The Scary Door
Artifact

At the beginning of each upkeep, choose a permanent at random, transform it, and turn it face-down.

You are entering the vicinity of an area adjacent to a location.  The kind of place where there might be a monster, or some kind of weird mirror.  These are just examples; it could also be something much better.  Prepare to enter: The Scary Door.

<strong>Fear
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Creature
Enchanted Creature has Fear.


"Everyone gets scared from time to time, little one. But do you know why? It is because they know that I might be the noise outside their window..." - Lim-Dûl, Creepomancer




Edit: Sorry. I will make a real entry.


Real Entry:

Valley of Shadows
Land
Whenever a creature attacks you, that creature gets -X/-X until end of turn, where X is the number of Fear counters on Valley of Shadows
At the beginning of your upkeep exile a creature you control at random, then put a Fear counter on Valley of Shadows. If you can't sacrifice Valley of Shadows.



Concept: A scary valley where people go missing. To attack you, your opponent's creatures have to go through it. This makes Rafi feel like Norin. In fact some creatures get so scared they pee themselves straight into the graveyard. Once Valley of Shadows has gained a scary enough reputation even the most mindless hulking creatures fear to tread there.

Arachnophobia

Remove 3 charge coutners from Arachnophobia or , : Put a 1/2 black and green Spider Horror creature token with deathtouch and reach into play.

Whenever a creature dealt damage by a Spider you control dies, put spawning counters on Arachnos equal to that creature's toughness.
Remove 3 spawning counters from Arachnos or , : Put a 1/2 green Spider creature token with reach into play.

It is the reason people are afraid of spiders.

4/5

I like my first version a lot better, but this one actually fits the criteria. It's strange to have a tap ability on a giant creature, but that's to incentivize actually killing dudes with him, so he can use the non-tap cost, while still giving him a way to work if the opponent isn't playing ball (and by ball I mean creatures).

Chicken Out

Enchantment

When a player is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 white Chicken Coward creature tokens with flying into the battlefield under each of that player's opponent's control.

"Insert chicken pun here."


Anxiety Attack |
Instant

Destroy target Coward.

Forecast — , Reveal Anxiety Attack from your hand: Target creature becomes a Coward until end of turn. (Activate this ability only during your upkeep and only once each turn.)

"Everyone fears something. I just turn that fear into something more... lethal."

Thanatophobia 
 Enchantment - Aura
 Enchant Creature

 When enchanted creature dies, choose one at random - return it to it's owner's hand, return it to it's owner's graveyard or exile it.
 "The death penalty is not punishment enough. Give him time to imagine what his death will bring" - Arbiter's Decree

Notes
I chose the three zones specifically because each one can represent a different hypothesis people have for when we die:
Hand - Reincarnation: The creature can relive again
Exile - Afterlife: I've used exile to depict the afterlife before as I feel it fits the flavor.
Graveyard - Oblivion: There is no afterlife or reincarnation after death, just a rotting corpse.
The -0/-1 counters represent the growing fear itself and will ultimately result in the creatures death or weaken it's resolve enough that something else has an easier time killing it

Tap target creature. If that creature's power is 1 or less, exile it.

Haunted Oracle

Creature - Human Wizard (U)

Whenever a Spirit creature enters the battlefield, put a fear counter on Haunted Oracle.
: Scry 2, then put a fear counter on Haunted Oracle.
Haunted Oracle doesn't untap on your untap step unless you pay :Xm:, where :Xm: is the number of fear counters on Haunted Oracle.

He partakes in knowledge that man was never meant to know.

1/3

I decided to take up Jessica_Morgan's suggestion of studying fear. This card's flavour is basically that of a researcher who's gone one step too far in his pursuit of knowledge, and is as a result haunted by supernatural powers. He gets dragged down by his fear unless you pay mana. Think Sea Gate Oracle but a little different. The Spirit thing is an interesting (flavour-wise) drawback and prevents it from getting too powerful - I was considering making it enter with a fear counter but decided against it in favour of the current drawback.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Guess what's closed? This is closed.
In that case, go with Phobia Mask, seing as I couldn't reason any way to make Anxiety Attack non-black and the chicken one is completely unbalanced at this point...
