This is an awesome Scheme idea. Just wondering about the wording though; does each opponent lose life equal to the TOTAL number of cards exiled that way, or just the amount of cards they removed individually? I think as a Scheme it should be total, which is what the wording sounds like, but I wasn't sure if that's what you meant.

Yeah, perhaps that did make it too cheap. I also had a realization that this could be a Red/Blue hybrid card, with Green. So the mana could be R/U R/U G. Not sure if you can do that here, though, but this card makes me think of both Prodigal Sorcerer and Prodigal Pyromancer.

Perhaps it could be worded like this:

R/U, R/U, G
Fauna Prodigy
Tribal Sorcery - Fungus

Put a 1/1 red and green fungus token into play with "T: Deal 1 damage to target player."
Put a 1/1 blue and green fungus token into play with "T: Deal 1 damage to target creature."

Again, this is just a suggestion. I just came to this realization and thought it sounded really flavorful.

It's a very interesting start. I know the site is not the most flexible with these cards, but a few things could change: make it gold, not just red, and if you can, change the tribal type to fungus. Very interesting idea, though.

As an after thought, maybe to make it slightly more flavorful, one fungus can only damage players (and planeswalkers), and the other only creatures. It would be difficult to word, but you would cut the extra colorless mana off because it's a bit more restrictive.

Valakutian Magic: The Gathering In the discussion on the Deck "Valakutian" by brainstem10 United States

The first game I played was VERY easily won w/ Primeval Titan/Valakut combo. I had another Titan in my hand plus a Cultivate, and probably more ammo from every orifice.

Of course, it's hard to go wrong w/ 11 Mythics and 9 Rares as the brunt of the combos. 33% of the deck is rares, 40% is land, leaving a meager 27% for "other stuff". Hence the 4-rating. But it's still a blast to play. Works very well.

Very cool idea! Only thing is for a Mythic, you really don't want it to die in the event you have no cards in hand. Therefore, maybe make its toughness (and maybe its power too) 2+*, where * is the number of cards in your hand.

I also like how you incorporated another card you invented, which is also a pretty decent card (though it should probably be an uncommon, not a common). Nice. =)

Agreed with cyarus.

Even he is stronger than your guy in this case, and I'm just not sure that's true. This guy, the only real artifact Planeswalker we have to gauge with is much more potent. He needs more of a kick than just "tap a blocker" and a very weak version of his ability.

Stupid spell check forced me to link to the cards instead of posting their names. Sorry.

Neat idea; it would have fit perfectly in Kamigawa (if wither had been a mechanic back then) for overpowered equipment.

However, if we're trying not to overpower cards, then it needs more of a drawback. Maybe something negative when you try to equip it from one creature to another (like Grafted Exoskeleton); maybe sac the creature, or it loses those counters when the blade is re-equipped.

I always thought wither was too strong of a mechanic anyway, though. To be able to permanently affect creatures as well as players is a little much. Maybe this equipment's drawback could fix that imbalance and not be able to damage players (so only creatures). Or perhaps it gives that creature defender, so it can't attack anyway. Or you could just make it cost more, and thus harder to activate in the first place, but that tends to make cards inoperable.

EDIT: So sorry, man. Just realized it was a Mythic and not just Rare. That changes things. In that case, this is just broken enough to be mythic and still usable, yet tricky to get out in the first place. My mistake. Should be a 4 rating then, not a 3.

Ralus, the Holy Flame In the discussion on the Dream Card "Ralus, the Holy Flame" by granzer United States

Cool idea, but something just seems out of place. This is my suggestion, considering the theme of this guy is a purger of evil:

CARD NAME 1RRWW

Haste
Lifelink

RR,T: CARD NAME deals 4 damage to target creature.

2/3


One W for the built-in lifelink, One R for the haste, and the other 1RW for the 2/3 + pro-black. The ability costs one R more than Flame Slash, but the lifelink is now automatic (for 4 life!), and it can be used every turn. And should you choose not to pay for the ability (because there are no more creatures to purge), he could attack (for free) and still gain the life instead (and get beefed up). Again, just my suggestion.

Like the others have said, it's a cool reference, but very cheap for such a ridiculous effect. The real 360 was not that cheap for you to put into your living room (most likely), even if its effect WAS cheap, so it makes sense to make it cost a little more mana (1 or 2). Cool idea though. =)

When we're talking about Topher, we are talking about THE Topher Brink, right? If so, I love the reference and the idea. Not sure how serious you were when you made the card, but it IS a little ridiculous for 4 mana. =)
