Amita Destroying Angel
So, another big gap between real releases. Anyway, this is an idea I've had on the back burner for a while, and it's meant to be horrifying in pretty much every possible way. Mechanically speaking, this is a very brutal combination of effects, to the point where it compensates for her poor stats/CMC ratio. Attacking into her means that four of your creatures are going to die, and the rest aren't getting past without trample or non-flying evasion. Attacking with her is equally brutal, especially if she isn't attacking alone because everything is blocking her instead of them. The vigilance probably won't come up without additional resources spent, but it's there for flavor reasons.

Speaking of which, flavor. Art, if I were any good at art, would be an angel with its body and especially its wings being near-saturated by parasitic fungus (no flying), surrounded by enough spores to artificially darken the area (reach because she's literally blotting out the sun, vigilance because anything nearby is going to die without her really having to do anything).

To add insult to injury, the entire character concept is based on her epithet, which is the common name for several of the most toxic mushrooms on the planet (Wikipedia article here). Her actual name is a contraction of the relevant genus, and went through several -iel versions before I actually tried to fit it on the name line of a card (the software may narrow the text if necessary, but WotC doesn't, so I don't either). Yeah, the whole thing is a pun. A pun that will go The Last of Us on your entire family.

As usual, credit goes to Richard Garfield for inventing Magic the Gathering, Hasbro by way of Wizards of the Coast for keeping it running, and whoever made the Magic Set Editor program for, well, making the program I used to turn this card into an image.

Arachne, having realized what she was saying and who she was saying it to, quickly had the facial expression that animals see in smiles, one meant to communicate the threat of teeth. Euryale, having realized the same thing, started backing away in a panic.

Previews of a Future Story
I don't want to forget these random zingers, so I'm presenting them now out of context. Even once I start writing, it'll be a while before I get around to these, but they stand alone relatively well.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'll be adding to these as they come to me. Additionally, added the first actual preview outside of a couple conversations in really obscure places and a couple intentionally opaque references in this journal. Both types of thing are likely to pop up, and once I actually get to the point of writing them I'll likely turn them into links rather than actually remove anything.

EDIT2: Added another thing. Also added the tags I used on Ophiotaurus' Wake for similar reasons.

Just updated all of my cards to the post-2015 templates. This is the follower notification for all of them, because I don't want to spam the five of you, especially since only Samarkana is here for MTG; Mutitus and dodamonkey are mutual follows that I initiated, and I genuinely have no idea about the other two. Could Fabikatchukoh and DragonMage98 chime in to explain themselves?

Most people see this costume and think I'm one of those patriots. The ones who support gunning down helpless Arabs because the government told them to. There is a so-called "hero" like that, John Walker. Goes by USAgent nowadays, if you're looking by codename.

Me? I'm a little different. Way back when, I saw what America had become and... it shook me. Turned in the costume, started going by Nomad. The Man Without A Country. When I was ready to be Captain America again, it was as a champion of the American Dream. Whenever my countrymen forget that, they oppose the shield.

And those who oppose the shield must yield.
The Other Mister Rogers
A short piece of good ol' Cap explaining what he actually stands for. More people could stand to be like him; that's literally the entire point of his character, and it's a sad day when I have to tag something like this as "Ideologically sensitive" but those are the times we live in. It's not tagged "Strong language" because the swearing is exclusively in the tags and this description, neither of which are actually hidden by the content filter last I checked.

The title is a reference to the eponymous main "character" of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, another exemplar of humanity with a very similar name, and those scare quotes are because, by all accounts, he was exactly the same way on the show that he was in real life. Basically everyone can agree that there should be more people like him; the only difference is whether it's because of his views or because he's dead, and I have no sympathy for anyone who agrees on the latter basis. (I don't have nearly enough sympathy to spare any for assholes).

Before you complain about the tags, make sure you read all of them. Two of them would arguably get a lot of flak thrown my way, but they're directly opposed, so I figure they should mostly cancel out.

Captain America, USAgent, Nomad, and probably the 60's cartoon theme song I referenced in passing are all trademarks of Marvel Comics, and by extension Disney because that happened.

WHAT NINE THOUSAND?
Hey, don't look at me, 20k is over nine thousand. And I'm pretty sure everyone who ever lived wanted free stuff, so get going. Or better yet, don't, so that there's more for the rest of us. :-)

"Harold Daniels"

I'll fill the rest of this out later, but for now I'm just going to confirm that the scare quotes do, in fact, mean that that isn't my real name. It is, however, the real name of any alternate-universe versions of me that show up in stories.

Addendum: I use the "Status Update" function solely to emulate the function of DeviantArt's comment section for places where I can't be bothered to make an account to do so normally (or which don't have a way for me to do that at all). If I ever want to actually update you on my status, it will be via Journal.

Okay, I'm pointedly not hiding that previous comment. Notice the lack of counterpoints to anything I said? Notice the lack of clarity regarding what they're even talking about? I legitimately have no idea what I did wrong, but all signs point to "nothing, this guy's just an idiot."
