Hm, a 2/4 double strike defender for 3. Seems reasonable, I guess; comparable to Plumeveil.
also considered giving him a Tephraderm style ability reworked as a damage reflection type ability
Removed Deflect completely as it doesn't workj, skews combat too much.
I like DFCs in concept quite a bit. They are tons of fun to design. I don't really enjoy playing with them in paper Magic, but I like the idea of them more than I dislike that, so it balances out.
so we have two options both with their supporters and detractors.
With DFC's I always kept copies of the "other side" with my sideboard in different coloured sleeves to the rest of the deck...transform time? put the copy on top of original and hey presto problem solved. (not for all especially with some of the rare & mythic cards)
FWIW DFCs are allegedly quite popular among players as a whole. There are many people like myself who get rather annoyed at the physical unwieldiness and faff of playing with them, but we're a minority.
It needs to be slightly better than the coloured lands though; since they can always substitute for it, but it can't substitute for them. Can't be much though.
The last time I tried that, I ended up with "~ ETBs untapped" ; realised that was ridiculous slapped it onto joke card and gave up.
took out the line between abilities
in line with Messianic Bluff
Another change to bring in line with Messianic Bluff
Changed howe this works completely for another idea
