Zodiac Rooster Discussion

I think modifying loyalty is an reasonably interesting design space but there's a few issues with this card. Firstly, a minor thing but they're called Planeswalkers; plainswalkers would be things like Zodiac Rooster .

Secondly, as designed, this card wouldn't actually do anything. The Planeswalker would have to already be on the battlefield to be a target for this Aura, so it would never trigger. Also, there's no such thing as negative loyalty counters, it would have to be worded as a replacement effect that changed the Planeswalker to add fewer loyalty counters when it entered. I'm not actually sure how you would have to phrase it for it to make sense in the rules.

Thirdly, I'm not sure this is sufficiently powerful that players would choose it over a less narrow removal card like Bedevil or Conclave Tribunal or something.

Finally, I don't understand why you added the exile replacement, it just seems to make the card more complicated without meaningfully changing its design.

kamarupa on "HELP" - All suggestions taken

Dear eatmygender, I've done my best to take your sage suggestions, however, did run into a few issues. You have to understand, my meager intellect needs very specific instructions and I cannot perform any thinking on my own. As TappedOut could not recognize Squee, I used Squee, Goblin Nabob. TappedOut also didn't recognize "Ulamog," "Emrakul," "Kozilek," or "Zodiac Chicken." In their places, I used Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Kozilek the Butcher, and Zodiac Rooster. Finally, it appears TappedOut does not see the inherent wisdom of running 789 Kozilek. The most I could get TappedOut to accept was 489 copies (I assumed numbers ending in 89 had an advantage). While I now question TappedOut's wisdom in their limitations and recognize the deck will surely suffer being 300 Kozileks short, 489/789 must be better than none at all. My sincerest gratitude for your suggestions and your understanding my limitations.

Currently, there's no way to interact with Emblems. Once it's created, it's there to stay. Of course, this may change when new cards are printed.

Also, it's Planeswalkers, not Plainswalkers. Zodiac Rooster is a Plainswalker :)

First, a "plainswalker" is a creature with the plainswalk ability (e.g., Zodiac Rooster).

What you're really talking about are "planeswalkers" (e.g., Jace Beleren).

No. Planeswalkers are subject to the "planeswalker uniqueness rule," which functions similarly, but not identically, to the legend rule.

You can only control one planeswalker of any given planeswalker type (e.g., Jace, Chandra, Sorin). If you control two Sorin Markovs, or a Sorin Markov and a Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, you choose one to keep and put the rest into their owner's graveyard as a state-based action.

And just to clarify, since "type" is a reserved term used to refer to words in a card's type line, you can have up to four copies of any planeswalker card in your deck (e.g., 4x Jace Beleren and 4x Jace, the Mind Sculptor).

Just nitpicking here, but "plainswalkers" are things like Zodiac Rooster, whereas "planeswalkers" are things like Jace Beleren.

I don't see any plainswalkers at all. :( No Boggart Arsonists, no Zodiac Rooster, nothing.

Your description says you have "Plainswalkers" in this deck, but I don't see a single Graceful Antelope or Zodiac Rooster in here.
