So simple, I can't believe it's never been done

  1. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Angelic Elite (3WW)
    Creature - Angel
    Flying, first strike
    Pure as mother's milk, swift as scorpion's sting.

    Are you hoping for such a card in one of your decks? Seems like a neat idea. but I dislike paying for that when I could just use a Serra Angel for the same cost. Though, a Loxodon Warhammer on your creation makes for a much better combo than Serra ;)
  3. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    No, I don't have a deck that needs it, it's just that it surprises me...10+ years of Magic, and never once has a 3/3 flying first strike been printed for white.

    Hmm, you have a good point. Closest I can think of off-hand is that awful bird soldier from Ice Age.

    Doofus Galoofus Rider
    Summon Dork
    Flying, First Stike, Banding

    I think it was actually called Kjeldoran Sky Knight or something. So, maybe using it as a historical basis, your card should cost 4W. It would be fun to see. :D
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, it's Kjeldoran Skycaptain though, but close...

    I think the name Doofus Galoofus Rider fits the card much better, on a flavor level that is.
  7. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I would only add the word overcosted, but I guess that pertains more to the properties of the card than the flavor...

    Five mana was just way too much for it. Then again, it seems fitting five for a 3/3 first strike. I know all the angel players would use it.

    rkoelsch would be our local expert to ask here... :)
