So me and my friends made this account for creating cards to do custom battles with, and I wanted to know if everyone thinks their balanced enough. I'll only post a few of the cards here for now, but I will be making future updates with more cards.

 

If you find that you created the art used in one or more of these cards, feel free to let us know. We just pull random images off of google, and we don't claim ownership of any of them.

Dark Consumption should probably cost 1BB.

 

Keelhaul should read: "Gain control of target creature an opponent controls. Untap that creature. It gains haste. At the end of your turn, sacrifice it." It should also be a sorcery, seeing as you're making the sacrifice at the end of YOUR turn. If you want it to be an instant speed, the last line should read "At the beginning of the next end step, sacrifice it." Either way, seeing as this is an effect that's "better" than Act of Treason, it should cost more, 1UU at the least. Seeing as it's a red effect in blue, you might be able to argue it should be UUU or 2UU.

 

The second ability of Ancient Temple should be formatted "{t}, {2}{G}:"

 

Nature's Serenity should be an Enchantment- Aura with first line "Enchant creature."

 

Ent is not a creature type. You're looking for Treefolk. Beyond that, for 5G, you should be able to get a 6/6 vanilla. Anything less (without buff) is criminal, and upping the costs (5G is easier to get than 4GG) just drops it way below curve. If you're looking for a 5/6 vanilla, perhaps 3GG is an appropriate cost?

I normally am against bumps, but I want to point out I was incorrect about the proper formatting of Ancient Temple's costs. It should instead be "{2}{G}, {t}."

alright, thank's dude. I appreciate the feedback. Also, I don't think it matters if Ent is a type of creature or not since these are custom cards.
