Created for the Winner Is The Judge #411: Evergreen Showcase Cycle on Reddit. The contest was to design a vertical cycle (common, uncommon, rare/mythic) that showcases one (or more) of the new evergreen abilities Menace, Scry and Prowess.I decided to use all three in a crescendo that represents the ascension of a Necroz Order initiate (monks that worship Death). To do so, I had to bring Prowess to black. In my opinion, casting noncreature spells is even closer to black than it is to white, so I don’t really break the pie here. It works both flavorfully and mechanically.
