Excellent, positive episode.
Flyrocopter Scout –Excellent 08/10
Soul Drain – Fantastic 09/10
Frenzied Corsairs – Change the body to 2/1 or color shift to black. As-is it’s virtually unprintable 02/10
Settler’s Caravan – Very flavorful. Probably not printable because of the “any order” clause. Eternal format Johnny wants to break it. But will probably be a letdown much of the time. 05/10
Guardian of Kazundoo – Not sure about double colored aside Colonization (EDIT: At common). 06/10
Kahana Observer – Okay 06/10
Lone Evangelist – Name flavor is a little off. Would be decent as a 2/3. As-is, it’s okay 06/10
Sinister Strike – Name sounds black. Redflagged as 2-for-1. Decent 07/10
Stitched Gulgud – Jinx is cool. The body is odd. Overall it seems too strong*. Needs development 04/10 (*EDIT: I didn't notice that it also couldn't a/b alone)
Wave of Dispersion – Recall needs development 03/10
Saleisan Biomancer – Bad flavor. Otherwise excellent 8/10
Soul Harvest – Fantastic 9/10
Flaming Skull – Odd. Red Pirate tribal and red Human tribal in the same set. It’s an odd design with weird flavor. Doesn’t look appealing. 03/10
Trystor, Who Seeks Revenge – Awesome 10/10
Quote from Tribble314 »I came up with a mechanic the other day that has a similar "networking" feel as Recall, and I'm curious what everyone thinks of it. I was trying to find an Archer tribal mechanic:
Elvish Skyhunter 1G
Creature - Elf Archer (U)
Quiver 2 (When ~ enters the battlefield, you get 2 arrow counters)
GT, 1 arrow counter: ~ deals 2 damage to target creature with flying.
Not an archers would deal damage. Many would have "trick arrows" that tap, force an attack, or remove keywords from a creature.
Quote from Zervintz »About Recall: This mechanic is still my greatest nightmare yet. I want to use Totems somehow in the set, and I don't want them to be creatures. I completely understand what you said about it being hard to develop as is, and I agree. My problem is that I don't know how to fix the mechanic yet. If anyone has a suggestion about how to fix Recall and the Totem network ideas, please let me know and we can discuss it here or via PM on reddit, or whatever
Quote from zarepath »This was cool! Maybe one day I can get a Netropolis booster reviewed.
Have you guys thought about brainstorming a custom set as part of the podcast? Like coming up with a design goal, then brainstorming mechanics and emphases as you're recording? It's probably a lot of pressure to do something like that on the spot, but I bet it would be pretty interesting.
