    Personally I'd switch some of those abilities up - I find it boring that Green gives Trample, for example - but otherwise the idea is sound. I'd drop the cost by 1 or G.

    Edit: definitely G, actually. This card wants to be splashable!

    T: Scry 2, draw a card
    T: create 3 treasure tokens. Use this ability if Gavin is not "spent". Put a "spent" counter on Gavin.
    5/5


    This does not sound like an intriguing card, whereas the new one does

    Well but at least it sounds like a magic card and not an hearthstone one


    The current Garth One-Eye definitely reads like a Magic card actually

    I get what you're saying, but it doesn't seem all that Squirrel focused. This charm isn't Onslaught-level terrible.

    I think when the Audience dies, you should gain life equal to its power. You're not putting a show on for free, right? Get paid.


    I'd disagree with that. It turned the rakdos strategy far too much from Aggro to grindy mid-range. Treasure would be more appropriate if you were looking for payoff.


    I like the idea but I feel like this effect is complex enough as is for a mechanic without adding a die trigger. Accordingly, I think it'd be great as a separate card that can entertain, then produce Treasure tokens whenever Audiences die.

    I just want you to know that I love the concept of this card and its mechanics. I don't know how well it works in practice but I love this card all the same!

    "Hearth and Home" is one I've heard before while "House and Home" are basically synonymous in a way that's a little confusing.

    Gosh it's been a month. I hope necroing is okay if I have a bunch of content to post?

    ???, Surveying the Sagu - 4GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    Delve
    Land cards exiled with ???, Surveying the Sagu's Delve ability are exiled with Seed counters.
    +1 - Create a 1/1 green and blue Plant creature token with Flying. Put a Deathtouch counter on it.
    -4 - Put up to four land cards you own from exile with Seed counters on them into your hand.
    3

    One thing I've decided on in the meantime is to expand this dude's repertoire to tutoring up a set of cards - Green Food cards, specifically, since you know

    Fruits. (veggies too, of course)

    Visionberry - G
    Artifact - Food
    When Visionberry goes to the graveyard from the battlefield, draw a card.
    2, tap symbol , Sacrifice Visionberry: Gain 2 life.

    Tender Spearshoot - 0
    (color indicator Green) Artifact - Food
    When Tender Spearshoot enters the battlefield, you may pay 1G. If you do, destroy another target artifact.
    2, tap symbol , Sacrifice Tender Spearshoot: Gain 2 life.

    ???, Infiltrating the Tangle - 2GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    Metalcraft - Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if you control three or more artifacts, put two +1/+1 counters on it
    +1 - Create a 1/1 green and blue Plant creature token with Flying. Put a Hexproof counter on it.
    -1 - Search your library for a Green Fruit card, put it onto the battlefield then shuffle.
    3

    I suppose this means that not all the ??? cards are going to care about exiled lands with Seed counters. That's a relief because it was difficult for the cards not to become so wordy!

    That's a pretty clever use of those weird land types necessary on the Urzatron, haha. I'm glad we finally have the Enchantment Land. Honestly, I'm satisfied with this.

    Good idea, I'll do just that! I'll tweak that lifegain a bit though.

    ??? - 1GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    +1 - Gain 2 life. Exile up to one land card from your hand with a Seed counter. If you do, draw a card.
    -1 - Create a 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature token with flying.
    -5 - Create a 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature token with flying for each land card you own in exile with a Seed counter on it.
    3

    Also now I've finally decided on how to show the Self-Grafting aspect.

    ???, Self-Grafter - 2GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    When ???, Self-Grafter enters the battlefield, exile any number of land cards from your graveyard with seed counters. Put that many loyalty counters on ???.
    +0 - Create a 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature token with flying.
    -X - Add X mana in any combination of colors. IF X is 7 or more, add twice that much mana instead.
    3

    Ehh, no I dunno. This needs further thought, hey?

    You know what

    You're right on a number of things. Accordingly, I'll change some things. Also, sheesh I forgot to get the mana symbols and add "Legendary" to the typeline.

    ??? - 1GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    +1 - Exile up to one land card from your hand with a Seed counter. If you, do gain 3 life and draw a card.
    -1 - Create a 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature token with flying.
    -5 - Create a 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature token with flying for each land card you own in exile with a Seed counter on it.
    3

    As for the second card, take a look at Mana Severance and Selective Memory. Again, I'll tweak it though.

    ???, Exobotanist - 4GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    When ???, Exobotanist enters the battlefield, search your library for any number of basic land cards then exile them with Seed counters. Shuffle.
    +1 - Put a land card you own from exile with a Seed counter onto the battlefield tapped.
    -X - Create X 1/1 Green and Blue Plant creature tokens with flying.
    4

    Would limited Mana Severance and 4 tokens be an okay rate at 4GU? Hmm.

    I say "eh" to your criticisms on the last card because, well, rulings nightmares aren't super-relevant for fan-made cards and it still requires setup with other cards for those broken shenanigans you mention. Still, I just realized I'm not satisfied with this card as is since it doesn't properly convey the self-grafting concept thus it's changing anyway.

    ???, Self-Grafter - 2GU
    Legendary Planeswalker - ???
    Whenever a land card enters the battlefield under your control, put a Loyalty counter on each ??? Planeswalker you control.
    uh give me a minute to decide on abilities lol
