@Cold Awareness: Kind of interesting as an anti-weenie strategy. The cost is somewhat prohibitive but it combos well with any sort of effect that taps down, and the limitation on how many times it can trigger per turn helps to prevent shenanigans. I like it. 8/10.
@Developing Outskirts: Yeah, that's broken beyond all reason. I get the flavor within the mechanic (It's Simcity after all) but honestly, this card is not printable. Super OP. 4/10.
@Code Red: I'm...not sure what this does. Seriously, what does it do? ?/10.
@Wary Manhunt: Okay, I get the first part. You're being pursued, so your on the defensive and can get the drop on them (first strike). When you do, you get to draw two cards and then...stuff. That second part is kind of a mess because, once again, what does it do? I still don't understand what a creature being dealt damage as if it were a planeswalker means. Were you aiming for a Rhox
-like effect, where you can assign combat damage to a creature (like you can choose whether your attacking a planeswalker or a player?), because I still have no idea what's going on. 3.?/10, because I'm lost.
@Unstoppable: It's fine I guess. Kind of interesting, though you might have been able to just word it as, "Whenever a source deals damage to you". I'm not sure. Name could use some work. 7/10.Æther Transmuter
