Interesting - feels like you might want to use the ETB trigger on your own permanents fairly often. Especially if you have an infinite with Memnite or an Urza block free creature or the like.

I was wondering whether I should add one or two mana to the activation cost. I guess with the new rules I could actually change it so you cast a copy of the exiled card.

Interesting, given that Veteran Bodyguard is already a (slightly different) card.

What are your thoughts on "re-printing" pre-existing cards in non-standard ways -- the way Goldmeadow Lookout presaged Goldmeadow Harrier. for example, or Gaea's Cradle became Growing Rites of Itlimoc // Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun, or Black Lotus was reshaped into Lotus Bloom?

So is Benevolent Bodyguard - I'm sure this is an intentional name reuse, but if you're gonna do that I'd rather see you tackle the true name wastes like Teleport. Veteran Bodyguard basically functions perfectly for the flavor of that name.

I personally love any and all variations of it. The amount of cards I made that make tokens of already existing creatures with name and all is ridiculous.

It's a theme. Also I once tried to remake Teleport, but I realized aside from costing too much it's a relatively fine and clean execution of the concept. I think, I'll find what I made out of it and post it eventually. ^^

That's "cast" and not "play" - is having lands be a pure whiff an intentional choice?
Players will want to play this card optimally. Just making sure that tracking land-drops is not an additional concern to take into consideration.

Oblivion {1}{B}
Enchantment (R)
If a player would search their library for one or more cards, you may search that player's library for a card instead and exile that card. Then that player searches their library.
Wow this murders your opponent's fetches and makes yours better. Seems like maybe it should be a colorless artifact.

Ok this is a really cool idea. This opens up some interesting space. A card that's a scheme. A phenomenon? Agenda? Vanguard?

I like it, put it on something with Menace and you get an unblockable creature. Put it on something else, and you get a miniature Lure.

Good card for a Pirate Tribal deck with Admiral Beckett Brass as the commander. I like it.

Cool, Harrow fused with looting. I'm not sure if the ramp mode is too strong as an opponent's-EOT play...

So this week's theme is definitely counting up from 1 to (presumably) 7 eh? Neat card, though it does feel a bit strong.

Something to consider - Harrow at sorcery-speed is definitely way less attractive.
