    Call of the Ring

    At the beginning of your upkeep, the Ring tempts you.
    Whenever you choose a creature as your Ring-bearer, you may pay 2 life. If you do, draw a card.


    The Ring Tempts You:
    As the Ring tempts you, you get an emblem named The Ring if you don't have one. Then your emblem gains its next ability and you choose a creature you control to become or remain your Ring-bearer.

    The Ring
    1. Your Ring-bearer is legendary and can't be blocked by creatures with greater power.
    2. Whenever your Ringbearer attacks, draw a card, then discard a card.
    3. Whenever your Ringbearer becomes blocked by a creature, that creature's controller sacrifices it at end of combat.
    4. Whenever your Ringbearer deals combat damage to a player, each opponet loses 3 life.



    NOTE:
    • The Ring can tempt you even if you don't control a creature.
    • The Ring gains its abilities in order from top to bottom. Once it gains an ability it has that ability for the rest of the game.
    • Each time the Ring tempts you, you must choose a creature if you control one.
    • Each player can have only one emblem named The Ring and only one Ring-bearer at a time.

    Seems too good, five dollars is rather cheap for a spoiled card.

    What's the worst thing you can do with it? Casting uncounterable Uros or Planeswalkers?

    Black isnít the color of evil! Itís just the color of having no regard for community or othersí well-being while using death and slavery as primary means of gratifying its own self-interest and increasing its power. Big difference.

    I swear in one of those old color pie articles Maro said something like, "Black isn't just the color of evil- it's also the color of capitalism" completely unironically

    10 FUCKING YEARS LATE, they finally print the card WGR Astral Drift truly needs to take over after they killed damage on the stack.

    off the top of my head:

    Creatures: 8
    2x Eternal Dragon
    2x Eternal Witness
    4x Drannith Stinger

    Sorceries: 10
    4x Edge of Autumn
    4x Sweltering Suns
    2x Life from The Loam

    Instants: 10
    4x Reprieve
    3x Wilt
    2x Radiant's Judgment
    3x Zenith Flare

    Enchantments: 8
    4x Astral Drift
    4x Lightning Rift

    Lands: 24
    2x Emeria, the Sky Ruin
    4x Jetmir's Garden
    4x Flagstones of Trokair
    1x Heliod's Hall of Generosity
    3x Savannah
    3x Plateau
    2x Plains
    1x Forest
    1x Mountain
    3x Wasteland

    I mean, there's an absolute ton of other directions you can go here and I'd honestly prefer a colorshifted Memory Lapse (for 2 mana, not 3 which is unplayable) over Reprieve, but I'll take what I can get. Getting a playable counter in white is just such a huge upgrade for any white/not blue controllish deck. WGB, WRB, WGR, all just got dramatically stronger here.

    Damage on the stack was dumb and I'm glad it's dead.

    Agreed, but it was one of the big things Slide had going for it, letting stuff like Eternal Witness trade favorably.
