Not a very fun coinflip card. I'm of the opinion that if you are going to need to design something that involves doing a tedious and repetivie action, it should at least be fun for one player. This is fun for neither unless you decide to build a UR deck that is centered around not casting instants or sorceries.

Also questionable fun problem: I can't attack or block with this, because I'm afraid to trade. But I don't know if my opponent has any instants or sorceries. But he might. But... but...

6/2s really want to swing.

Well, I guess that's the red part of its casting cost explained :)

This does seem like it would not be fun to play against. And generally nowadays both outcomes should have some upside; even if it's a small one.

Perhaps this would be better as counter unless they pay - where heads gives one payment and tails another?
