@Mahx: Your artificer is seriously undercosted. Even if it does on an empty board with no other artifacts before the search trigger can resolve, cards like Battlescull break it so hard..

A remake of a useless card with art I adore with a relevant variation of Relentless Rats:

Lucent Liminid 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Enchantment Creature--Elemental Mythic Rare
Flying, vigilance.
CARDNAME gets +1/+1 for each other CARDNAME on the battlefield.
X mana symbolX mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol: Create a token that is a copy of CARDNAME.
X is the number of creatures you control named CARDNAME.

Updated my entry.

Changed it from Darksteel to Stoneforge, concidering the fact that the card is partially based on Stoneforge Mystic. The only problem with using Stoneforge in the cardname is that the stoneforge artificers are usually Kor creatures from Zendikar. But we could imagine that this dwarf learned the art of stoneforging from the Kor (The sad thruth was that I couldn't find any unused Kor Artificer art to use).

I made it so that you need to have the Equipment in hand in order to place it for free, and fixed the bug that would make it die right after entering the battlefield if there was no artifacts out, wich was the entire point of the ablilty. I do no longer think it is undercosted, concidering that Stoneforge Mystic can do this repeatedly for the same cost.

I've fixed the stuff you pointed out. And yes, it shouldn't be silver bordered, it should be "Legends" bordered. Unfotunately, I have yet to make the Legends borders, so I will remain silver bordered for now.

@Pixi-Rex: I'm using Firefox and I suddenly also get a big warning when I try to access

@Mahx Michael: Yeah, new veryion looks much better. Still one nitpick: You shouldn't really balance cards using Stoneforge Mystic as reference considering how undercosted/overpowered that card has proven to be Winking smiley

Yeah... you're probably right about that
But it's silver bordered and also part of the Legends series, where pretty much everything is unbalanced...

Isn't enchanting usually what an Enchantress does, like the thing that would make her an enchantress in the first place? Or is it just stupid of me to pick on something like this?

@Pixi/Daij: I have the problem too. Chrome said the site's certificate expired. You can cheat around this by setting your computer's date to December 2 or earlier.

@sdfkjgh: I personnaly don't use Gatherer because every second time I use it (or get linked to it by DaylyMTG), it just doesn't find anything. Might be a problem with living in central Europe or something, I don't know. I'm not the only one in my playgroup having these problems with Gatherer.

Scryfall's pretty good. The only thing it's missing are foreign language cards, but it's pretty detailed and the search function works very well.
