Cool Card Design of the Day
7/27/2016 - I designed Alleytown after the colored cycle, but it's the only one that does just what I wanted: A simple land that sacks into a small creature for a reasonable price.
I felt the need to differentiate members of the colored cycle, and I didn't want them to all produce different tokens, so I gave them other effects. That's cool, but limits their purity/elegance. It also powers them up, forcing them into uncommon.
