So far we have gotten 3 Epic Spells. each one Mono-colored

with we have seen the most pure expression of Rage

So my question is. What do you think the Epic Spell will be for and ?

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

no, see i can kill defenders, but 8 consecutive crits on a battlemind, eh walk it off.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.

Wouldn't 's current Omniscience make more sense as Omnipotence? It doesn't give you any more knowledge, just the ability to apply all the knowledge you currently have.

I would imagine Omniscience would be something like exiling X cards and then being able to play those cards as though they were in your hand while still paying their costs.

For black, Attrition. It's all about making the scales even less balanced. Also, it shows that you think of your allies as pawns, to be traded on a whim.

And the epic mechanic was epic. Surely you've heard of epic fail.

Doesn't represent black as black, though. It doesn't represent black's ability to turn one resource into another. And you'll notice Plague Wind works regardless of the current board state.

No. lol Omnipotence would be something like

Closest it has right now. Certainly fits the criteria more than a 3 cmc enchantment.

 No, instead this:
Omniscience means infinite knowledge. Omnipotence means infinite power. 

In blue's flavor, it's always been implied that drawing cards represents gaining knowledge - Thirst for Knowledge, Rush of Knowledge, and Brainstorm are all blue card drawing spells. 

Tapping resources for mana and paying that mana to cast spells, however, represents the magical power of the planeswalker/player- Power Sink, Power Leak, and Drain Power are all blue spells that make opponents pay additional costs or otherwise hinder their mana production. 

Meanwhile the card Omniscience allows you to cast spells without paying for them, and Arcanis the Omnipotent draws lots of cards. So someone has the flavor reversed. For me, Omniscience would be a blue Praetor's Counsel with "your graveyard" replaced by "your library". Of course, you'd have to up the cost to at least 10 cmc.

It's called Door To Nothingness but yeah If I went to a standard tourney and they had D.E.A.T.H as a card I would so choose someone who beat me in a match if I got it off. "Hey you, in the purple shirt you just lost the game M/Fer, Oh you have infinite life? I don't care you still lost."

I completely forgot, mono color card in RTR is definitely Guttersnipe he is by far the best card in the set IMO. Modern wise he'll win games in burn decks on turn 3.
turn 1 spark elemental or vexing turn 2 Desperate Ritual + guttersnipe + gut shot turn 3 any three 3 for 1 spell lightning bolt, lava spike, etc... 3 + 3 + 5 + 5 + 5  granted that won't likely happen but with Gutter on the board burn can focus more on creature removal while still hitting face
Also since the burn deck I have set up is so cheap (3 being highest CMC) I think 16 mountains will suffice.

Since Black is Death, I feel Black in someway should get a spell that can strike down a player.
I'd say Iona fits white best.

Yeah. 10 or more bodies makes her a cheap drop. Sheoldred, Whispering One offers a slower control aspect. Myojin of Night's Reach does discard. Decree of Pain can wipe creatures and draw. Herald of Leshrac can steal lands. Dread Cacodemon and Reiver Demon is Wind with a body. Demon of Death's Gate is a large body for 3 Black creatures and 6 life.
