Quote from Rosy Dumplings »The argument I made above (in quotes) was a hypothetical argument made against Creedmoor’s design as an example of constructive criticism to PROMOTE your design rather than a criticism of your design.
Calling the original card a turd and saying that any attempt to make a Mox that is somewhat balance is a failure because moxen aren’t supposed to be balanced... also not the best feedback.
back to the original card, I think that the current design is balanced for standard but would find abuse in other places. I think that fixing it in other places (where a free sac outlet is desirable) would break the card in a standard environment. Making it a legend like amber and opal should keep this thing pretty much balanced everywhere, though.
Quote from sleeper agent 2.0 »As a "mox" (a card that costs 0 mana and can tap to produce 1 mana) it seems quite balanced, and probably on the weaker side. I think only very specific decks would want it. As a free sac outlet that gives you a small benefit, it's good for decks that want it. So I see this mainly as a commander type card. Depsite costing 0 and no mana to activate, the fact that it has to tap limits its usefulness as far as sac outlets go.
I think the card's power level is good, and would be a card I would consider in any deck that plays Phyrexian Tower.
