CCDD 073020 - Feather, Watch-Angel

This card started out as a "bottom-up" design. I wanted to see what a build-around card for mechanics like replicate or strive would look like, since those mechanics don't fit well in traditional spellslinger decks. I quickly realized that it needed a fairly minor reward to be balanced, and then it wouldn't be as exciting, so I went looking for ways to make it spicier. Things got out of hand from there...

For better or worse, it strikes me as the kind of card that I could imagine getting printed in a modern Commander set.
