Oh, a comment I missed back in January. You know, I'd argue that its a common, and doesn't need to be efficient, especially since it's already better than Zephyr Spirit in, like, 5 or 6 ways (which, I know, Zephyr Spirit is horrible. I'm just saying that this could be a 0/4 defender and it would still have a use.) But lets drop it to 4 anyway. Cards with drawbacks should be pushed for Spike, otherwise only Uber-Johnny likes them.
Dropped cycling to 1G. Sure, why not?
Originally, this card had "if you lose the flip, sacrifice a creature." Beyond being unfun for some people, it was just too many words for what should be a simple land. Pared down to simplest form, and upped by . Unfortunately, it loses a little of the feel of Crooked Scales... but not too much.
Changed the last ability from "if that card would go to the graveyard this turn" to "If any card would go to any graveyard". Mostly, because of tracking issues. It's kind of nice that the ability can be used to turn Lightning Bolts into Incinerates, though.
Changed to adding and removing counters to make the card easier to track.
