On Wolkross Hunter:

Repeatable removal, even if conditional, shouldn't be common since it can be backbreaking. However, looking through the set, I don't see that many cards that this could actually take down on its own (Wind Drakes and such) so maaaybe it's fine in this particular instance... This being a counter to Chemical Courier seems only fair IMO.

On Unfathomable Experiments:

Underdwell updated again. The previously wording said "Untapped creatures may block this creature as if they were untapped." Creatures with Underdwell were never intended to be able to be blocked by untapped creatures, which the wording left out.

What Underdwell wants is to let creatures block while tapped and that only tapped creatures can block creatures with Underdwell in return.

On Astrologer Apostle:

Whenever ~ becomes the target of a white spell or ability from a white source, you may untap it. If you do, you gain 2 life.

?

On Astrologer Apostle:

Oh, I missed "or ability". Abilities are much easier to put into a deck to break this kind of card e. g. this goes infinite with Lifeforce Distributor.

On Astrologer Apostle:

(((Vocal Supporter))) and Justice's Stance can also trigger this card.

On Lifeforce Distributor:

The option of tapping creatures wasn't useful on this card and would have only have worked if you were gaining life at other times.

And I have no idea what I was thinking when I designed the card originally. I maybe wanted a white artifact, or maybe just thought of a white card.

On Lifeforce Distributor:

"tap or untap" is usually the blue thing to do.

It's really weird that the triggered ability exists only on the equipped creature but affects any target creature - though tapping by the time lifelink gains you life is also unusual.

Is this a top-down design or has it a specific mechanical purpose. I really am stumped by the life/tap connection here.

On Astrologer Apostle:

So correct me if I'm wrong, but the sum of cards in this set that trigger this is Recompose... or your opponent using Sunbind...

What you have here is a more restricted heroic - and that required a specialized environment to work out. On first glance I'd give two pieces of advice:

  • Don't add a whole mana onto your 1/1 for such a marginal ability.
  • This set is not the place for this cycle. Take this out and wait until you find the right spot for it.

Alternatively you could go all in and redesign the set around this, though I don't see any reason to support that approach.

On Astrologer Apostle:

I made a cycle of creature's that did something when targeted with a spell of their color, though the cycle had no relation to the set.

On Lifeforce Distributor:

Would make a good aura, actually. Or if you do want it to be an artifact - how about equipment? (In both cases with the obvious rider that it untaps the thing it attached to)
