Solphos has completely been ported from the old Wizards forums! Hopefully, it will remain here for posterity until the end of days.

There's also a wiki now, which you might be intersted in hosting it at, or at the very least provide a link.
Welcome, by the way.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!

storyteller: Thanks to you as well for taking the time to comment. I'll reply after you finish looking over the whole set.

Everyone else: How do I set my signature on this forum? I can't find any such option in the user control panel.

Oh, there it is. I guess you need to make a post before your signature becomes editable. Thanks!

Yah, CKY! We're finally getting the band back together. I know you're a bass player CKY, but Razor's already called dibs so you're stuck as drummer.

Razor is like a singer I think or a screamer/growler or something.

A lot of cool cards, but there are some problems from a limited play standpoint.
1: You have a bunch of cards at common that just don't do anything (pretty much anything that taps or untaps creatures, or any creature with power 1 or less and toughness 3 or less).
2: You have a bunch of tap untap shennanigans, but no real payoff. Congratulations, you can tap and untap a creature 5 times, but that doesn't really get you anywhere.

Still, the cards ARE cool, and I'm glad you're on the new forums :)

Razor is also a bass player, although not that good of one

@Cato: Every card is useful in a combo somehow. Well, almost every card. Hissing Clawhorn is just for fun. In the case of the tap/untap subtheme, take a look at Gunpowder Trail, Manifold Eyes, and cards that have or grant abilities.

@YMtC band: Naturally I will be the producer and marketer.

I remember there being a draft of this set on old wotc forums. Can we do something like that here, or maybe some block constructed?
