Daily Card Redesign #85: Snake Basket

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development. I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


9 lines of text is supposed to be O.K. for a rare! The idea here is that there's a basket of Snakes you don't know the number of inside. Instead of using X to define that number, I'm letting a random number generator (revealed nonland card's converted mana cost) define that. And the flavor is that you put a basket in the way of the source that would have otherwise hit you - and then the basket breaks open with Snakes.
