An Open Letter to the MtG Community

Hello folks.

I'm Hairless Thoctar.
Actually rather hairy, been playing Magic for about 5 years now, have become completely obsessed.

As many of you may know, Wizards of the Coast; the stellar men, women, and goblins that they are; are running the fourth You Make the Card event. That's pretty neat.

We've already settled on enchantment for type, black for color, and global for effect.
Not my first choices, but I'm a easy-to-please kinda guy.

Now we're submitting potentially the most important aspect of the card; the rules text.

I'm reaching out to the maybe five of you that will read this with a plea;
Please don't design a Necropotence variant.

Yes, the effect is powerful, but it's so obvious.
When people think of powerful black enchantments, it's the first thing anyone thinks of.

I understand the appeal, really I do, but we can do so much better.
Something distinctive and original that won't either ruin standard for two years or won't fade away into obscurity.

We have the potential for greatness, to design something totally distinct that lives up to the legacy of the YMTC, um, legacy.

We can do it. You can help.
