Potential Cards for Doomsday in LCI
The Discover Lands
Hidden Cataract and Hidden Necropolis
Humor me here. For the price of a tapped land and five other mana on a later turn, we can, after Doomsday, not do fucking much. Never mind. I did want to say that Discover is an interesting mechanic, but they seem to have capped all the power levels so they won't make much of a splash in Vintage.
Enchantment — Aura
Enchanted creature loses all abilities and is a black Skeleton creature with base power and toughness 1/1. (It loses all other card types and creature types.)
Now we're talking! ... If this drew a card. The allure here is it being an Enchantment. Or, I suppose it would be if Spell Pierce numbers had not been going up lately. That said, we can get what we want from this out of Dress Down, and even get a card draw. A shame.
Creature — Merfolk Wizard
When Tishana’s Tidebinder enters the battlefield, counter up to one target activated or triggered ability. If an ability of an artifact, creature, or planeswalker is countered this way, that permanent loses all abilities for as long as Tishana’s Tidebinder remains on the battlefield.
Interesting Nimble Obstructionist that sticks around. Shame it doesn't have evasion of some sort – Islandwalk would make this a nice little beater that could stop Time Vault. As is, I can't imagine using it in Doomsday, but it could see play in a Vintage Merfolk deck.

And that's about it? I looked long, and hard, and long, but I didn't see anything that stood out. Bummer. Same thing for the upcoming Lord of the Rings Extra cards.
