[Racial Profile] -- Pyrfolk: Cardlist | Visual spoiler | Export | Booster | Comments | Search | Recent activity


Pyrfolk are reptilian beings who live in hot environments, including volcanoes and lava. They have special hide--usually made out of diamond--to resist the extreme heat. They can sometimes spurt fire, lava, or gas from their mouths.

Pyrfolk are primarily red. They were conceived by Amuseum to be the characteristic race for red (mirror of blue Merfolk) in his custom sets.

At the end of combat, if a creature you control dealt combat damage to an opponent this combat phase, up to one target land that player controls become a Mountain.
Legendary Planeswalker – Lithus
+2: Creatures you control get +1/+0 and gain wither until end of turn.

-4: Lithus Incensed deals 4 withering damage to all creatures your opponents control.

When Pyrrau Fortraiser enters, create an Injuromancy Aura token with enchant land and attach it to target land. (Enchanted land has "{1}{r}, {t}: This land deals 1 damage to any target.")

On Lithus Incensed:

CMC = 8.

On Lithus, Flow of Hot Ideas:

... they appear to have had to invent flyspeck-1 for that one! So yeah, ok, official cards also do this bad thing.

On Lithus, Flow of Hot Ideas:

They pretty much did do this kind of structure with Vivien, Monsters' Advocate, who has two static abilities. If they'd used the 4-ability frame like on Jace, the Mind Sculptor etc they they could have fit those on reasonably.

On Lithus, Flow of Hot Ideas:

And flyspeck2 is why they didn't try try doing this, methinks. At the full font size; the text box gets as far as "deals 1" before reaching the end of the card.
The first ability just about fits before it goes off the bottom of my screen.

It's an interesting "Here's my entire engine in a card, by the way every single other card in my deck costs {2}" card, mind you.

On Lithus, Flow of Hot Ideas:

PW with Four different types of abilities: static, triggered, plus / minus loyalty.

On Pyrrau Fortraiser:

-mancy are subtypes of enchantment, and are paired with Aura. each mancy type would have different innate abilities.

Injuromancy grants pinging.

On Lithus, Forged in Volcano:

@Vitenka: For plus abilities that target, you always want to say "up to one" in case there are no legal targets, but still want to tick up your walker

On Lithus, Forged in Volcano:

So artifacts cost half as much, as long as you can pay in red? That's kinda interesting. Not exactly red's traditional wheelhouse for mana ramp, though.

Why "Up to one"? When would you ever activate that and think "Nah, I'll give this to no creatures".

Finally - that ultimate. Big badda boom Detonate variation. Is it an interesting tension that the loyalty abilities want you to play lots of cheap artifacts, while the non-loyalty ability lets you play more expensive ones? Or is it just odd? I'm not sure.

Overall, I think I like this. Though the non-ritual nature of that first ability means it's really stretching red.

On Lithus, Mountain Fire:

Damage prevention is basically nonexistent these days anyway

On Lithus' Lavaball:
