James's Proposal: Athambia Academy, Round 2

This is an academy, and as such, there is a heavy emphasis on your creatures learning, and casting spells. New mechanic "Teach" presents you with a choice: you can cast the spell yourself, or Teach it to one of your creatures, who will use it every time they attack. Another common cycle of spells allows you to enlist a creature's aid, as you can tap an untapped creature of the appropriate color rather than pay the spell's mana cost. Learning is also shown with returning mechanic Level Up. Level Up plays differently in Athambia Academy, as most cards include tapping as the level up cost rather than mana. In this way, your creature has to forgo combat and "hit the books" in order to study and become stronger.
