    A sleeping enchantment! Haven't seen one of those in a while...

    Yeah actually from what ive asked a few people, this seemed very balanced. Along with the Eater of souls...

    I noticed that it would take less space to put "remove five scorch counters from ~this~" than having it work the way it does now. It's not all that important, though...

    Very true.. i might even be able to shift it up to 9 point if it reads

    Whenever you cast a spell that successfully deals direct damage to an opponent, put a scorch counter on Enkindled Gargoyle.

    R,Remove 5 scorch counters from Enkindled Gargoyle: It becomes a 5/5 flying red gargoyle permanently.

    my only concern is that the text would be divided among a couple lines, althought it would sound better and might even look better.. I'll try tweaking it.. and using the current spacing it would look exactly like


    Whenever you cast a spell that
    successfully deals direct damage
    to an opponent, put a scorch
    counter on Enkindled Gargoyle.

    R,Remove 5 scorch counters from
    Enkindled Gargoyle: It becomes a
    5/5 flying red gargoyle permanently.

    this fills 7 lines and needs a space in between the two.. lines can have 6 lines max..
    (Like neurok familiar) I'll try the wording difference but the font is gonna have to stay the same size :(

    I like it, but if you've already cast 5 burn spells on your opponent, it's only going to probably take about one hit from that thing to kill.

    I'm not sure which is more interesting, but I might consider making it fewer counters and only until end of turn.

    R, Remove two scorch counters from Enkindled Gargoyle: Enkindled Gargoyle becomes a 5/5 red gargoyle creature until end of turn.

    after 5 yea.. if its only until end of turn, then its not as good.. playtesting this card also showed me that restricting to burn spells makes this a little tough to cast.. even if it is 5.. i think i may reduce the number of scorch counters entirely.. probably to 4..
