Thanks. Raise the Alarm is the model, but the setting (which I'll write something about later) wanted a less aggressive twist.

We found this was very strong in (our one) playtest. It occurs that it compares with Isamaru, Hound of Konda, which does perhaps imply it's too strong.

White continues to get 2/1s for {w} (Elite Vanguard, Dryad Militant), but so far always at uncommon. I note that this is more aggressive than Raise the Alarm, just less ambush-y.

Yes, you're right; it's too strong. But {1}{w} would plainly be too weak. I don't especially want to reprint Raise the Alarm... so I'm feeling a bit stuck for options.

I suppose "move to uncommon and come up with a new card" is one.

Trying out chargecast. Strikes against:

  • Unbalances the 1-chargecast-common-per-colour thing I had going
  • You're unlikely to be able to chargecast this early, as you might want to
  • Flavourtext gets cut for reminder text.

Flavour was "To seek out, settle or subdue new lands, as the Emperor directs." - Imperial charter of House Ereson.
