Maybe get rid of the unblockability and add Hexproof instead? I really want it to have something blue in it

Also yeah comparing it to Phage, maybe it needs an unreanimability clause too

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Dream Curve, Temur Redux:

Tattermunge Witch-Doctor
Creature — Goblin Shaman
: Add to your mana pool. Tattermunge Witch-Doctor deals 1 damage to each player.
0/1

Fireplume Fledgeling
Creature — Phoenix
Haste, flying
Fireplume Fledgeling enters the battlefield with a pinion counter on it.
, Remove a pinion counter from Fireplume Fledgeling: Add to your mana pool.
2/1

Karnigoth of the Thousand Teeth
Legendary Creature — Dinosaur
Haste, trample, hexproof
8/8

This curve still goldfishes 20 damage on its own by turn 4 with a regular mana dork. (Attack with Phoenix on the turn you play it, then again on turn 4 when you attack again with the dino.) Noble Heirarch also pushes it up to 22. Ideal turn 4 play is Fatal Frenzy if all else fails. Made the dino Legendary so you can use it as a commander

Word, the Witch-Doctor was supposed to be a Goblin. What's the other one?

The Phoenix for not doing Phoenix things.
And after googling what a pinion is, I have a lot more questions about the flavor of the card that relates to its capacity to fly.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
In Final Fantasy, Phoenix Pinion was an item that Phoenix Down'd your whole team, so I assumed it was basically just a large feather, or another word for feather. I guess I should have just used feather counter, but then it would have interacted with Aven Mimeomancer. Maybe that's not a bad thing.

Would "Elemental Bird" make you happier?

I had a dream that I opened this in a pack:

Memories of the Frozen Past
Enchantment (M)
Exile ten cards from your graveyard: Draw three cards.

It was definitely Mythic in my dream. Not sure if I would put it at that rarity IRL but there you go.

You should make Phyrexian Decimator read "At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 1/10 of the game."

:P

6/3

:P

That's the idea! It was inspired by Phyrexian Soulgorger-meets-Decimator Web. :3

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Inspired by viewtopic.php?f=17&t=19975&p=589477#p589467:

Moloss the Unforgiving
Legendary Creature — Demon
Flying, lifelink
When Moloss, the Unforgiving dies, any opponent may sacrifice a creature. If any do, return Moloss to its owner's hand. If none do, each opponent loses 13 life.
6/6

Some math stuff:

• Getting one attack in and then triggering his lack-of-tribute effect leaves them at 1 life.
• Getting one attack in leaves you at 26 life, which is twice 13.

Cute, but the character it was inspired off of was just a random dude that burned half his body to scare a general that he was sent and failed to assassinate.

The character is already undead, so why would he turn into a demon? He gets nothing out of it.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Seal the Deal
Sorcery (C)
Target opponent skips his or her next draw step.
Draw a card.
Chimney imps like using the blood of their prey to seal their demonic contracts. Usually, however, the consequences of signing one aren't too catastrophic.

Haste on Fire isn't actually going to do anything.

not most of the time and that's sort of unappealing but haste does something on the original body and i think the concept is alright and it is necessary to give fire haste for the concept to play out i think

a 2/1 with trample is sort of wasting trample as well
