Creating a token just to destroy it before it can attack feels wrong.

I also got feedback that chapters 2 and 3 encourage you to go wide to break the symmetry, but chapter 4 wants you to not play anything to break the symmetry. It's a flavor slam dunk that you end up destroying the board you spent resources building, but it's not a fun play pattern. At minimum I could give the tokens haste, although it breaks the connection to other Karnstructs

maybe players Can choose certain cards to save from total annihilation.

I think that last chapter did a pretty good Urza's Sylex impression

The creative treatment is really good, but referencing Tawnos's survival of the Sylex Blast is just as much an option as Urza's ascension.

Gameplay-wise I also prefer Urza's Sylex since it brings in a planeswalker without circumventing casting it - after a board wipe a free planeswalker on the board ight be an issue.

Here two (non-exclusive) options I see right now:

  • Move the first chapter to third position.
  • change the token entirely e. g. 3/3 colorless Construct creature token with "When this creature dies, create a tapped Powerstone token."

I designed this before Brothers' War previews. The powerstone construct is a good idea
