Nice combat trick. Flash is very rare in red, though, apart from in Time Spiral block - to the point where I might even say this is out of pie. But this is obviously pretty similar to Viashino Bladescout, so I won't kick up too much of a fuss.

Oh, yes, it is out of pie isn't it? Bother. I hadn't noticed that Bladescout was TSP. Hmm. Might leave it as is.

Remove flash, dwarfify.

Flash made even less sense on a dwarf, so removed. Instead went with an upgraded Jackal Familiar.

However, this is now my third {1}{r} creature; and CR01 Malandian Emissary is part of a cycle, while CR03 Sparkrunner probably shouldn't change size as one of only two 1-power red critters.

I'd already named the region.

The Haste on Sparkrunner seems unneccesary, you could drop that and make it cost {r} which would solve this issue.

That's true, although it does have two strikes against it.

  1. It's a bit odd for Red to not have a small Hasty creature.
  2. I rather like a Haste saboteur for the surprise factor.

One solution that occurs is to put Haste back on CR01 Malandian Emissary, and move Intimidate to Sparkrunner. Giving a saboteur evasion feels like it should be worth an additional mana, so I could then up his cost to {2}{r} (if that proves too weak, I could possibly make him remove two counters.)

(formatting help)
Enter mana symbols like this: {2}{U}{U/R}{PR}, {T} becomes {2}{u}{u/r}{pr}, {t}
