    Any ideas for this one?

  2. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I love the art.. but I think its a bit too good for its cc. I'm thinking it should be a 2/1?

    And going on the name, shouldn't it have shadow instead of fear?
  3. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    I agree with Limited....You need Haste, but with the other abilities, It is just too powerful for the cc.

    The Viashino Sandstalker cost the same, and only has the haste and the bounce. Maybe your CC should be 3BB, or get rid of the fear and make it 2BB. If you do that, then you should be able to boost the power up a point making him a 4/1 Flying, Haste, Bounce creature with a cc of 2BB?

    What do you think?

    If you think of this as a unblockable creature, Imagine it as an enchantment

    Pay 1BB during your upkeep or sack it.

    During the combat phase, deal 3 damage to target opponet.

    Does taht seem right to cost? I dont think so my self.
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    As others have already noted, this is broken. It kills by itself in seven turns and it pretty difficult to stop.

    hmmm... but but... black has pestilence :)...

    maybe 3 for a 2/1..

    i would have added shadow.. but i didnt have the (text) on hand when i wrote it.
  7. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Shadow would be even more broken...(assuming that if you add shadow, you take off the fear)
  8. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Flying and shadow? Might as well be unblockable...

    I agree with everyone else, just too cheap cc for what it does right now.
  10. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    The dragon in the art looks more impressive than a 2/1.. perhaps it should be a large dragon with a big drawback, like
    Hungry Dragon 1BBB
    flying, haste
    At the end of your turn, sacrifice two creatures
  11. Force of Will Smith New Member

    Thats too weak of a creature for 2 creatures each turn..

    i think either ill make it

    1BB 2/1 flying, Fear, Haste.
    At the end of any turn, return it.

    that way any burn spell will kill him, any countering, hmmm but creature removal...

    i could make it so if he's targeted by a black instant or sorcery spell sacrifice him..
    that way.. a terror could still kill him..

    so white could arrest, pacifism, or spirit link
    red could burn
    green could hmm... well its only a 2/1.. green could "out-beef" him..
    blue could bounce or counter
    black could kill it as well...

    Here's 2 versions.. one where its tiny.. one where its huge..

    I like the bigger one more...
  14. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    agreed...the bigger one
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Yep, the bigger one.
  16. Force of Will Smith New Member

    ok.. still balanced right?.. i thought that a dragon, especially a black one should be bigger than a 2/1.. it just doesnt seem right...
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It's a "small" or "baby" dragon ;)
  18. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Actually.. you can't target a black creature with terror, so the terror can't even be played targetting him..
  19. Force of Will Smith New Member

    hmm very true... ok then.. instead of the black instant or sorcery restriction it'll be black spell.. that way a creature enchantment could kill him

    i didn't want to make him like tar pit warrior though.. as the targeting=death idea is too risky... plus i want to have my customs see SOME play :D
