CCDD 041311—Crust-Stalker, Sylvok Chromeslut & Karn is all, "WTF?!"

Cool Card Design of the Day
4/13/2011 - Art spoilers are pure gold for speculators and designers. Yesterday's was no different and I was a bit more pleased with my output from it than the one last week, so I'll be sharing several cards with you today and tomorrow. Today, the "normal" ones...

I actually doubt they'll ever print a card that cares about a watermark, but you have to admit it is a really convenient quality to reference considering how much these two factions love to hate each other. If it's not clear, "Phi-B" is "phyrexian black" which was officially spoiled Monday and is, at they very least, exciting.

I calls 'em like I sees 'em. This is basically Bestial Menace with a -1/-1 in exchange for almost single-handedly enabling metalcraft.

This was originally, "deal damage equal to each artifact's CMC" without the card draw, but that seemed too brutal. The card is still quite abusable, but in a more thinking-man's-red-mage kind of way.

  1. The problem with Crust-Stalker is that it wants YOU to play Mirran spells so you can ping people. Instead of it making a war between Phyrexia and Mirrodin, it wants to go in a Mirran-heavy deck.

    I like the Karn card though!
