Moxtober 2020 #05: Cynic

During the month of October is #MTGMoxtober! Each day, I design a new Magic: The Gathering mechanic to fit the day’s prompt. Join Moxtober with your own Magic-related creations! Full prompt list here.

Day #01: Harvest
Day #02: Curio
Day #03: Binding
Day #04: Smog

Today’s prompt: #05— “Cynic”

In multiplayer games, sometimes an opponent attacks other players when you were wide open. They may say that they’re doing you a favor. Y’know, out of the kindness of their heart.

But no — the cynical know better. There are different motives at play. Probably some kind of strategic advantage. So you know what to do. Better keep them in line before they run away with the game.

The Black Rose sends her regards.

This would also be the first monored card related to Marchesa in the same vein as Bite of the Black Rose or Marchesa’s Emissary.
