::Each other player copies that spell. Each of those players may choose new targets for his or her copies.

@Mahx, @donovan: I consider the decision to put the commander text on the bottom to be a mistake. One should never bury the lead. Also, I'm glad you both like the idea.

@donovan: the 3rd ability doesn't cost X*4 loyalty, but X+4 loyalty. It's meant to be for loyalty what X mana symbol4 mana symbol is for mana. Also, in Magic, something isn't copiable until it is. What was the first card that created a token copy of an artifact? As for the typeline, Parasite is as much, if not more than, Zog's identity as Planeswalker. I suppose I could follow Self-Assembler's lead & do Parasite-Zog, but that is as far as I'd be willing to budge on that particular issue.

Oh, so I actually read that -X4 ability correctly, cool A happy smile It'd probably be easier to simply use -X Loyalty and then refer to X-4 targets, imho..

@sdfkjgh - I think the commander text goes on the bottom because during gameplay it is the least relevant ability.

As for that ability being X+4, I think that is way overpowered, and it should definitely be worded as a -X Loyalty ability.

Marshmellow, that doesn't work because Fabricate is an ETB ability and it'll die from having 0 toughness. So this is just a really crappy token making spell.

bazzboda: Boring. Also probably too versatile?

@donovan: how exactly is it overpowered? In order for the ability to have even 1 target, you'd need at least 5 loyalty, 6 if you want Zog to stick around.

@Daij: Idk. It seems like it's much easier to grok :-X4: vs -X Loyalty with X-4 targets, as the former mimics the manacost of X mana symbol4 mana symbol, whereas the latter requires hidden (ie, not immediately up-front) math.

@Pixi-Rex, you could go with the deathling, I like it many times more than graceling. It has much more interesting utility, two types of evasion that works together. One increases its lethality as a blocker, and an ability that benefits when its evasion works. Plus death touch and the power toughness redistribution is great, and even more so with the power of menace, and if damage wasn't enough of a reason to block, it can also cause discard. Its honestly a great design.

@sdfkjgh I would heavily argue against that statement. :-X4: is not easier to understand. If anything, it's more confusing. While the formatting is the same as a mana cost, a loyalty ability intrinsically doesn't look like a mana cost, so the similar formatting is useless. To reinforce this, when I saw Zog's ultimate, I thought it was X multiplied by 4, not as -X Loyalty-4 Loyalty in the same ability. And there is precedent for "hidden" math being in ultimates; just take Liliana, the Last Hope for example. You don't find out about the math until the very end. I would strongly advise taking Daij's suggestion, and make it a -X Loyalty with internal math. It will end up being simpler.

@sdfkjgh - Here is a list of emblems you get at a discount with this ability:

Emblems
Chandra, Torch of Defiance −7: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a spell, this emblem deals 5 damage to target creature or player."
Domri Rade −7: You get an emblem with "Creatures you control have double strike, trample, hexproof, and haste."
Dovin Baan −7: You get an emblem with "Your opponents can't untap more than two permanents during their untap steps."
Elspeth, Knight-Errant −8: You get an emblem with "Artifacts, creatures, enchantments, and lands you control have indestructible."
Garruk, Caller of Beasts −7: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may search your library for a creature card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library."
Jace, Telepath Unbound −9: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a spell, target opponent puts the top five cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard."
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets −8: You get an emblem with "Whenever an opponent casts his or her first spell each turn, counter that spell."
Kiora, Master of the Depths −8: You get an emblem with "Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may have it fight target creature."
Liliana, Defiant Necromancer −8: You get an emblem with "Whenever a creature dies, return it to the battlefield under your control at the beginning of the next end step."
Liliana, the Last Hope −7: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your end step, create X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens, where X is two plus the number of Zombies you control."
Narset Transcendent −9: You get an emblem with "Your opponents can't cast noncreature spells."
Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath −8: You get an emblem with "1Black, Sacrifice a creature: You gain X life and draw X cards, where X is the sacrificed creature's power."
Tamiyo, Field Researcher −7: You get an emblem with "You may cast nonland cards from your hand without paying their mana costs."
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage −8: You get an emblem with "You have no maximum hand size" and "Whenever a card is put into your graveyard from anywhere, you may return it to your hand."
Teferi, Temporal Archmage −10: You get an emblem with "You may activate loyalty abilities of planeswalkers you control on any player's turn any time you could cast an instant."
Venser, the Sojourner −8: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a spell, exile target permanent."

Zog starts at 4, which is the average of these planeswalkers, but the ability cost average is 8 and that destroys the average one of these planeswalers. In addition, Zog can copy the emblem creating ability if your opponent hasn't pulled off the emblem yet. Its just under costed, like a 2 mana copy creature.

It should probably be just a -6 or -7 to copy a single emblem.

@bioplay, Compared to ambush viper you could either cost this at Green mana symbolBlack mana symbol and or add a may to the sacrifice ability.

@CounterAttack11, looks good, as always I enjoy the twin mechanic. My only real concern is that the fronts first ability doesn't seem to be that great a parallel to the other sides, maybe have it search for 2 non basic lands? And this is just me being bad with rules, but does the second side give its own tokens the +1/+1 treatment? If so then I really think the front needs a little boost.

@Anyone, thoughts on my submission would be greatly appreciated.

P.S.
@Pixi-Rex, deathling is great.
Didn't see the render till now, @bioplay, I would go with different art, the one you have doesn't really seem to fit and it looks like it should have flying. I really wish art sites let you pallet search, it would be a great help to all of us.

@bazzboda: If you wanna find different art for me, go right ahead. I did my searching and that's what I found. The only way I'm unhappy with it is that it's a Demon without flying. Speaking of which, you really think this could be CMC 2? I feel like its really pushed as is. You flash this guy in during combat and he could wreak havoc on the board state. Or he just wins you the game by stapling your chumped 6/6 onto your unblocked 1/1. EDIT: Also, Feed//Consume is great. Love the versatility. However, considering Wildsize, Feed is probably undercosted. I think 2 mana symbolGreen mana symbol is fine. Being on a fuse spell generally ups the cost on things.

@bazzboda: Path of the Soldier does buff its tokens, yes.

As for Path of the Explorer getting a boost, I'm not sure what I'd do to match Soldier if the two are out of balance. The two abilities of each Path are intended to synergise with one another. I could reduce Explorer's land requirement to five, so you get the bonus card draw if you cast it on curve.

@bioplay: I like what you trying to do, with this design. There are some changes I would suggest, to achieve a clean look and blance level.

1. Art has wings, but the design don't have flying. change art I suggest. As I don't see black/green cards with flying so often. Here is one if you like Plant Zombies. http://shockbolt.deviantart.com/art/The-Darathia-concept-art-75399767
2. With the "Exploit" ability I don't thing your reach the Mythic Rare level. Rare maybe, but I could see this as a Uncommon
3. I would go for the uncommon and change the last ability to.

Flash (You may cast this spell any time you could cast an instant.)
Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)
Exploit (When this creature enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice a creature.)
When "Demised Vines" exploits a creature, target creature gets +X/+0 or -0/-X until end of turn, where X is the exploited creature's power.

4. the last thing I would do is make it a 2/2.

That is my suggestions.
PS: what about your Reserved spot?

@Pixi-Rex: Thanks for the try with the art, but I don't like that art as much. And you definitely straight up changed the text of my card to make it less powerful. I wrote +X/+X and -X/-X for a reason. +X/+0 would be a red effect and -0/-X effects are so rare because they are mostly pointless (there are five modern-legal cards with such an effect). Most things you're targeting with a -X/-X effect are trying to kill that creature and adding the power reduction in with it doesn't make it much more powerful than the former. And there's really no point in giving it the exploit ability. That definitely just adds text and gives it a Tarkir theme more or less (IMO exploit was a stupid keyword), and I was giving this Innistrad flavor in my head, not that it particularly matters.

As far as rarity, I def want to get some outside opinions. Am I seriously overestimating the power of my card? I definitely don't think it should be any less than rare. I think it's pushed at its current mana cost. I feel it is very strong for the same reasons that I gave to bazzboda. He's an Ambush Viper that gives up a tapped blocker to kill a creature mid combat, or he chunks your opponents lifetotal by turning the inconspicuous 1/1 that got through into a 4/4. All that's required is you sac that 3/3 that got chump-blocked. Also, don't forget, Golgari colors are all over death triggers and Delirium and having creatures in the 'yard. He's extremely versatile. So again, I ask, am I overestimating my card? Or is it too powerful?

P.S.: The reserved spot was just so I could easily return to this thread. I forgot about it by the time I posted my card.

I think it could be 1 mana symbol less at Rare, honestly. The ability isn't enough to warrant a +1 to cost given the fact that you need to sac for it.

@bioplay: Fair enough. I see your point on -X/-X = -0/-X and the + side too. Its more or less the same. As far as rarity goes, I must say you higly overestimating this design. Remember rarity is only used to indicate how often a card appears in limited. An has nothing to do with how good the card is. But lets say that your design was in a set I would make it an Uncommon. The reason why is that, you need to sacrifice a creature to eather boost or kill something. If you don't use the card itself. That would mean it isn't better than a Murder or a Titanic Growth roughly speaking, and they has seen common printing. (I hope you can flow me, because I'm bad at explain things, especially in English.)

I would strongly recommend that "sacrifice a creature" part becomes a "you may" option. You can keep it as a 2/1 but I don't see why it can't be a 2/2. (Also don't make it a demon we only have one Black mana symbolGreen mana symbol demon and the is a cat demon.)
One thing is for sure, I would be sad if that design was in the rare slot in my booster pack to a limited event.

Your card is interresting in many ways. But it has a little to many colors and behaves a little to weird for me to want to play with it. But that's because of my playstyle and not becouse of the quality of the card. But yeah, if you could reduce it to two colors i think that would be pretty nice A happy smile

I think you are already aware of this but I'll say it anyways: Your card is just a wierd way to say "put a +1/+1 counter on target creature. But of course, if another card would trigger from having that creature die, then it makes a great difference. It could also potentionally save one of your creatures by removing it from the game before becoming the target of a removal. A happy smile Other than that, all I could think of is that it would do fine as a common in my opinion, not because I underrestimate it, but because it is the kind of card that is only useful during the right circomstances (or if you just want a +1/+1 counter). Just be carefull not to cast it on a heroic creature Winking smiley


Actually it can be used as thought it was Murder if you just find a target that has a +1/+1 counter on it.
What makes your card so genius is that it looks like a absolutely useless cards, but can actually be used in several different ways! At first i doubted if it would fit the contest, but now by looking at it again, it is the most advanced card I've seen until now. But still I think you could make it a common (but maybe you should ask someone who didn't make a 0/-4 colorless Unborn with rediculous wording as their last entry first, and then take it to concideration )
