Cut morbid down to try and be less wordy. I have no idea if that actually works. The morbid should supplement the original ability, giving the creature +2/+0. Also made the ability target the creature in addition to the player for cases where creatures would be tied for lowest power.

It's currently ambiguous whether the creature needs to be a creature "with lowest power" (globally) or "with lowest power" (among creatures "target opponent controls").

I think a good text would be "Gain control of target creature an opponent controls, if its power is lowest or tied for lowest among creatures that player controls." etc.

Though on a common I'd always suggest "target creature with power N or less" before any of those more complicated versions. The text is complex for common even without the morbid (which is outright fine compared).

If I switch to N, what do you think a good number is? My first thought was 2, but maybe that's a little low (considering the double red casting cost). My second thought was 3, but I was worried maybe three is too much? Do power 2 or less at 1R, maybe?

For reference: Wrangle.

Not surprising since the base line is Threaten and that can get you a Wurmcoil Engine - even this currently can if there is no smaller creature under your opponent's control.

So... maybe it should be "3 or less" and cost {1}{r}, but have a morbid boost?

This has way too much rules text for a common IMO.
