Quote from FumarHere're my thoughts on this:
- Dark Confidant gives you raw card advantage.
- Stoneforge Mystic finds boosts or utility for your creatures.
- Snapcaster Mage allows you to recycle a spell.
- Tarmogoyf is raw beats.
The red Wizkid should fill an otherwise unfulfilled niche. Finding an artifact feels too much like SFM, finding an instant or sorcery like SCM, dealing damage to players is more like Tarmo's territory, and looting would be close to Finkel.
That's why I stand by my idea of a ramp mage for red:
Entranced Beckoner |
Creature - Orc Shaman
Each spell you cast cost less to cast for each spell you've cast this turn.
Of course, it's all subjective.
If these broken two-drops were a cycle (which I don't believe they are), I would still argue, that the aggressive one should be red. In my opinion (again, if people want to create this nonexistent cycle) the green one should be Lotus Cobra (2/1 as others, and mana ramp, which is in the core of green color pie).
Nevertheless, I like your card, but would remove double strike and make it 2/1 to be more simple (and look more like others of the 'cycle')
