The other day I was super excited because Oath and Shadows where finally available for Magic duels.
I started playing Oath's campaign and "puff!" there it is a creature card in my hand that says: "when this creature enters play, add {R}{R}{R} to your mana pool". My first thought has been "How the **** did they pulled off this? There's no mana pool here".
When finally I was able to cast it, I was amazed at the simplicity of the solution that the developers had chosen: the game put 3 "red Mana" token on the battlefield.

So, I get to the point: the concept is really simple, for each mana there will be a token (that is not a permanent and is untargettable) with "sac: add one mana".
Obviously it would be a replacement effect for those cards that generate more than 1 mana (so Elvish Mystic stay as it is, but we can start to add cards like Ancient Tomb).
Is this feasible in Magarena? Will the AIs be able to manage it?

I really hope the answer to both will be yes

This has popped up before as a solution for the mana pool problem (The only viable one I can think of) which is possible in Magarena and should be possible for the AI (probably with some priority tweaking).

It has fallen off the radar since moving to github - I'll return it to our Issues and see if I can come up with something to start the ball rolling. :)

Thanks for brining this up!

That's a trivial one. I think it would be cool if the basic lands did not have all the same art, but maybe get randomized from a pool... Yeah, coding wise it's not a reasonable request, I know

Could you color the player whose turn it is say blue for example. I mean in the panels to the left of the board where the avatars are for example.
