    Tidespout Tyrant is usually a big jerk when he shows up. Powerful ability, premium mana cost.

    Odds/Evens on a D6 or any other even-sided die is the same as flipping a coin, so why aren't we just flipping a coin? Your card is overpowered obviously, but even its reason for existence needs more justification. You want to roll a D6? Change the odds on the outcome to justify six numbers.

    They seem like fun cards and I'd like to see them available on MTGO as well, though maybe just commander legal and not serious formats.

    So it's basically a silver-border set

    Yes it is.
    White can get effects that draw cards for doing white things if they only draw one card per turn. That is the recently established rule that WotC (and not just Mark Rosewater) decided on.
    It is always possible this could change, it is new after all, but it is definitely still wrong to suggest Mentor of the Meek-esque cards are in colour pie even if theoretically they could be brought back in for some reason.


    Flavor justification for these restrictions that only white seems to get is still kind of up in the air.

    Seems kind of alright, basically 1/5 that keeps growing and draws you cards maybe. Nothing overpowered though

    Exile target creature you control. Then, choose one —
    °Return it to the battlefield under your control.
    °Return it to the battlefield under your control at the beginning of the next end step.
    Flashback 3W

    This is kind of Momentary Blink with a cost update while also allowing flexibility on when the creature returns; you can choose to dodge wrath effects, or you can choose to blink and keep the creature available for blocking. The name kind of blows, but I couldn't come up with anything good.

    Aegis-Fang 2RW
    Artifact - Equipment
    Equipped creature gets +4/+1.
    Whenever equipped creature attacks, you may exile Aegis-Fang and have equipped creature deal 3 damage to any target. Return Aegis-Fang to the battlefield attached to equipped creature at the beginning of the next upkeep.
    Equip 2R

    Wulfgar of Icewind Dale's mighty warhammer, and his adoptive father Bruenor Battlehammer's magnum opus of smithing. The main idea is to make it useful with both cards to kind of string them together, while also evoking a magically returning throwing hammer. Don't know if it's costed correctly for the effect.

    (Apparently, he's Wulgar of Icewind Dale on this site. Hehe shrug)

    I think removing the sorcery restriction and giving you Vampiric Tutor's ability (Without lifeloss would be fine) would be more balanced at the current CMC and activation cost.

    A Hundred Squirrels 1G
    Sorcery
    Create 100 1/1 Green Squirrel tokens.

    This card is on many levels weaker than your card. Do you see the problem?

    I would instead have them cost (color) less to cast if you only control one land. It gives you a wider window, sure, but I think that's what they need.

  • posted a message on How about some MDFC duals?
    It's hard to design cards like these. The land side ought to be worse than the typical tapland somehow, I think. The spell side needs to show a lot of restraint too.

  • posted a message on Force of Impulse
    There's not really a good flavor reason as to why impulse would cause a creature to damage itself or lands to damage the player that controls them, and it doesn't seem very Izzet for either effect. The second part of the card is too strong compared to already eminently playable cards like Back to Basics (damages both players, requires opponents to be playing nonbasics) or decently playable like Acidic Soil (Sorcery speed and 3 mana.) You could probably just cost this card at 1RU and be fine

    would you care to elaborate on what's the point of the dragon?


    Appears to be best played in multiplayer: Give the dragon to the guy on the left who is worried about what the guy on the right is doing, and you have 10 power with haste. Pretty solid

    I think both of these cards are pretty good designs, but I'd change "Power and toughness of 1" to "Power of 1 and/or toughness of 1" just to make it a little more flexible. I also might make the dragon 3 toughness so that you can threaten to bolt it if it comes your way!
