Card Dump: Winter Snow

Hello! Today’s post is about Snow cards, following the arrival of Winter.

To me, Wizards skipped on a big opportunity with Snow by introducing the following five cards:

Snow-Covered Forest Snow-Covered Plains Snow-Covered Island
Snow-Covered Swamp                                              Snow-Covered Mountain

Turning Snow into a supertype ensured that it could never be its own thing and, in my opinion, made it quite bland. It led me to create cards like these:

Snow Owl Frostforth

Snow by itself is extremely restricted because it can be used equally by all colors, much like artifacts. Artifacts have found their own flavor, however. Until i can understand Snow’s flavor, this is about the only type of cards i dare to make:

Winters Cloak Winters Embrace

Happy holidays, until next time!
