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
Yeah it not perfect but bestow is the best work around for it so far, used to use DFCs but they are so unwieldy and not popular. At least you can drop the reminder text for rare/mythic ones.
So I guess when the error message "Applicaiton not avaiable" came up, it had heard my post after all.
I like this use of tech to get what you want. Still stupidly wordy in the reminder text, but does kinda capture "Even if you kill the rider, the horse lives on!" part.
Though, um, you can't kill the horse first. Which is a bit odd. And you can Disenchant it. So I guess it's a horse made of pure magic?
Changed from a DF card to a bestow creature a'la Theros
went with jmgariepy's idea to make it a mini browbeat.
Mini Browbeat? Draw a card unless a player takes 2?
That first ability is not in Red's color pie. It could perhaps be as a twist on Sign in Blood, and could certainly be , but definitely not mono-red.
retry of the + ability.
Yeah, it ought to be "~ deals damage to target land" :) N should probably be large.
That first ability seems more Koth-y to me. Chandra has always been more about casting spells than caring about lands.
Went with changing it to 'all other' in ultimate
changed +1 to look at 5, exile 1 and rest on bottom
I'd say Obliterate is a fair red PW ultimate, actually. Most ultimates are intended as a way to take a massive lead in a more obvious way, but this one requires you to think about it a bit. Would be best in a set with some suspend, flicker-until-EOT, or similar.
Maybe make it say "all other nonenchantment permanents" so that if you have extra spare loyalty it doesn't feel wasted?
I don't think R&D would like a planeswalker whose +1 lets you search an entire library (and make it need shuffling) every turn. You could perhaps go with something like
Look at the top [five?] cards of target player's library. Exile one of them and put the rest back in a random order.
