I could see Propagation as White instead of Red. Reduces the cloning a bit, but also adds access to Populate and more synergistic Legendary tokens with Tolsimir Wolfblood and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves, while excluding crazed degeneracy with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and the other recurrent Red cloners. White also has better equipment fetch for Kaldra.

Unless you're specifically wanting the degenerate Red cloning.

Scepter of Prosperity seems like it would incite inaction - not a play pattern you want to encourage.

No more than the Werewolf mechanic from the original Innistrad block does to the user, and it'd go excellently alongside to get a bit of a catch-22 where you get to draw if they're casting, but they have to cast two spells to turn off your Werewolves, and you have a bunch of turns you already don't want to cast so you can set your Werewolves off to begin with.

Definitely not specifically wanting to be degenerate. No more than other available two card degeneracy anyway.
"Tokens aren't legendary." Feels like a red thing to me as does the fact that Propagation is about attacking. Ol' Kiki being Kiki :crazy:

Certainly not! I was going for a generous mage king thing here. When spells are flying the kingdom (especially the king) prospers. The owner may default to inaction though. If that happened (it likely would) it would make the owner a target. I wanted to achieve more of a feeling of a prosperous time. Perhaps
"Whenever a player casts their first spell each turn, each other player draws a card."?

These are all very inventive! Well done. I'm especially impressed with Fluxing Mimic. I'm not sure it's powerful, as such, but figuring out how to use it best is an intriguing puzzle.

I do think SecretInfiltrator has a point about Scepter of Prosperity. If you want it to convey prosperity, consider using your revised wording but dropping the "other": "Whenever a player casts their first spell each turn, each player draws a card."

It seems you found the perfect solution. Thank you.

Very interesting designs! I particularly like Propagation and the revised wording for the Scepter.
