I feel Gangster doesn't really need to be a new creature type. We have e. g. Rogues.

It is much easier to parse your cards if you write triggered abilities starting with the condition: "Whenever a creature you control deals damage to a player, you may discard a card. If you do, draw a card."

Note also that I moved the discard first since this card has red, but no blue - and red gets to do rummaging with tthe discard first.


You can copy the rules text almost exactly from Scuttletide for the static ability: "Creatures you control get +1/+1 as long as there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard." You could even use the ability word delirium!

I personally prefer to order ability word conditions the way Dragon’s Rage Channeler: "As long as there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard, creatures you control get +1/+1." Having the condition first helps to decide early whether to consider the rest of the effect - but ability words can take part of that responsibility.

Both methods are valid though.
