Mega Man Magic - Spoiler 32

A bunch of uncommon cards today. If you're up for targeted feedback, I'd like to know whether you think I got the rarities right on these cards. Uncommon is kind of a hard nut to crack; it has to be more exciting than common, but can't be too complex or powerful that it forces itself into rare. Your thoughts are welcome.

Kind of a lockdown-style card. It feels like it's got a hint of Azorius.

This card was all over the place, but in the end I decided to buck convention and give myself an uncommon multicolored card. I don't know if it's too powerful or too weak, but it's easy to understand, which is more than I can say for the first twenty or thirty iterations I had of the card.

I don't know if you can mill in this set; if I had to guess, probably not. But damn if I won't put a few cards in the set to keep the dream alive.

Recognize the art? It's from Batman. Anyways, mana booster/fixer, tried to make it a little different from the conventional stuff out there.

This is a card James has been pining for since the beginning of his Magic card creation experience. Twisted Image got us halfway there, but this one takes it all the way.

Obviously way better than Shrivel. That's all.

If you know the pause trick in the original Mega Man game, you know this set had to use it. I briefly thought about incorporating it as a keyword, but couldn't come up with anything appropriate. So this standard red damage doubler will have to do.

Had to change the wording when Magic came out with their adjustments for indestructible, but the card remains the same. As an aside, the game would be a lot harder if you could destroy the Air Tikkis. As in, pretty much impossible unless you had beaten Heat Man and gotten Item 1. And even then, it'd be tricky.

If you combine Watcher with some blink effects, you could screw up someone's day.

That's it for now, see you soon. Probably only 2-3 more posts before we're done. When I finish, I'll upload the whole album to imgur, so you can see it all together.
