    I don't think a planeswalker restriction is necessary. Animating Planeswalkers is generally useless, and there's basically no Gideon problem that I can think of, animated with the aura he's much worse than if he just animates himself.
    When a planeswalker takes damage, even if it's a creature, loyalty counters are removed.


    Yes, and that's an issue you want to avoid because why? It's an undesirable condition, thus making "animating planeswalkers...generally useless."

    I'm not following your logic there. You think it should just be 1WU?

    I'm not attached to it being three colors, it just seems like the most appropriate combination for the range of effects the card covers, that being animation of each of the different permanent types, commonly (not exclusively) divided among the colors as previously noted, plus the ability to override a creature's P/T, which is a green and blue effect for the most part.

    An uncommon 5/5 for 3 that seems quite fair in three colors, like Woolly Thoctar with a little extra liability, but more possibilities too.

    Gonna disagree. Animating each different permanent type is commonly assigned to specific colors. Blue gets artifacts, green gets lands, and white gets enchantments. All three can modify creatures' base power and toughness occasionally.

    I'd say let it target creatures, the only thing really holding you back from doing so is the name.

    I don't hate it. I don't love it. It's quite a generic logo overall. They're leaning almost entirely on the Planeswalker symbol to carry the brand identity, they want to be able to paste that one symbol on anything, in any color combination. It's just simplified branding.

    They could have done this with the old 'M' on the card back, but that ship has sailed, they've been using the 'walker logo in their branding for a long time, incorporating it into the official trademark of the game was only a matter of time.
