Sylvia Silverleaf

Here are some designs that I conceived recently, when I was deliberating ideas for new cards.

Sylvia Silverleaf, Defender of the Forest Show

This card is one that I created because I believe that there should be more cards with abilities that trigger when a player gains life, so that gaining life is not considered to be useless.

Sylvia Silverleaf, Sylvan Protector Show

This card is a creature version of Privileged Position whose ability is not always active but provides greater protection when it is.

What does everyone think of these two cards? Are they well-designed?

I like both actually, the first one is simple, yet effective and is a decent commander or a fine legendary in a standard set, especially in limited.

The second one a bit more obnoxious - the payoff is great, but I think too great. It should read "other permanents" to make it a bit less frustrating. It has the feeling of a chibi Sigarda, Host of Herons.

Boza, should I increase the threshold for the second Sylvia's ability, or would that not matter?

cool cards, the first one seems like a total shut-out in a limited game, esp. vs a black deck.
for that reason it might be too OP. I think either reducing power to 2 and/or removing pro-black could help balance a little. but regardless they look fun to play.

Grind, they do not need to have protection from black; I put it on the cards because she is a green/white creature, both of which are enemies of black, but, if it would make her too powerful, I can remove it.
