On Sightless Stomper:

I was personally thinking of Glade Watcher in terms of costing, making it a bit more efficient due to being a rare... though in retrospect I overshot in that regard. A 4/4 for that cost does seem fair, but it also feels a bit less splashy. Maybe a a 6/5 or 5/6 for 4? It would still be over-statted for its cost, but not by the same degree, and 3 to 4 is a significant jump in mana cost.

Or maybe not, I can never quite get the hang of the dials and knobs.

On Sightless Stomper:

@Vitenka: I don't think 'it makes a good defender' is a problem for the mechanic per se. It just means we need to be careful how the creature gets costed.

­Grave Bramble isn't the best card to bring forward to figure out if this card is undercosted, since it's a common from a 7 year old set. But it does help establish a baseline. Brambles has a bonus against zombies. But Sightless Stomper can take a swing at any untapped creature. That's a huge upside. There's an argument to be made that that ability is better than the ability to attack opponents.

4/4 for {1}{g}{g} is the highest I'd go for rare. It's possible that even that's too good, but I'd want to see it in action before I made that call.

On Sightless Stomper:

"Must attack each combat each turn if able, and must be blocked if able." Although now it's starting to feel like a red The Abyss

On Sightless Stomper:

This ability feels natural; but is kinda hard to word to make it work right. But that's not the real problem. People would usually chump this anyway. The real problem is that this is a very cheap defensive creature as well.

On Systematic Randomness:

High variance cards are fine. It's high variance cards that are constructed-playable that are bad

On Systematic Randomness:

i understand that. would fit perfectly into an uncard (a froggo-style one ofc that doesnt try hard at all)

so never really mtg.

i still kind of like it, and im ashamed because my logical side is disparaging me.

On Quicksilver Mirror:

Those are good points. Is there an example of a card that copies in such a fashion? I wonder. I'll have to try to research that if I find some time. The timing with flash wouldn't work if it copied something on the stack, since by the time you cast it in response and it entered, it would be too late for it to trigger.

I'd have to "leave it to development" in regards to the costs. On the one hand, it's such a niche card that overestimating the costs would make it useless. On the other, it could be very powerful with players using things like fetchlands if the cost were too cheap. Thinking further about it, it would almost certainly appear in a lot of EDH decks. Multiple players with these in play and plenty of mana would through the game into a weird state.

On Systematic Randomness:

Random high variance cards are bad design because they undermine decision making and take away from "earned" victories. Swinging between Ancestral Recall and One with Nothing is extremely high variance.

But this is also a card where the average case is worse than card parity. So it's a bad card that is also designed to be not fun during an actual game.

On Quicksilver Mirror:

The timing on this one is going to be kind of weird since the triggered ability will only go on the stack once the spell or ability has finished resolving and hence left the stack and no longer exists.

On the one hand it is "just" a hoser. On the other hand it is a hoser that answers to basic mana bases in many formats - just copying fetchlands makes me want to swap mana cost for casting and mana cost fory copying just so the recurring cost is more demanding.
