How popular was tribute? from jeepwithnowheels
Not so much. There was some execution issues on our end.
I feel like tribute had potential, but it rarely put other players in a situation that was like pulling teeth, between choosing the lesser of two evils. At least, that’s how I felt about it.
I would like to weigh in on the Foxy cards, I would like to point out they are almost all pretty much all would be considered unplayable. If you could take a moment to think of Master of Cruelties from the Return to Ravnica block, and just think about how little you actually see him in : Standard, Modern, Vintage, legacy, and hell, even commander. And he is MUCH harder to deal with. You also DEFINITELY have access to red AND black, both of which have a great amount of direct damage. from thedarkdemon
I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. I’m always looking for ways to improve my commander-making and learn from my mistakes.
Of all the Foxy’s I made, I feel like the last one I posted with the rest of the commanders is doable and could be fun. The others are either confusing and slow (the counters one), or give the player an unfair advantage (the assassin one). Since they are artifact creatures as well, there’s so much more you can do with them to give you the upper hand.
I feel that one of those Foxy cards is severely OP--the one with the "if you're hit by it once you just lose the game automatically no matter what son." I run a life-thief deck, so when I have about 60+ health stacked but then lose to an off-hand ability--that's just like: What? I feel that a card with that ability needs a bit more repercussion to use such an effect. from pyromaniacchef
I’m sorry if I’m answering this a bit late. Most of the time I check my tumblr via mobile, so it doesn’t tell me if or when I have messages. :c
Yes, I myself prefer the red/black one that I made, where he gives other horrors deathtouch. I feel like if any of them should have the Assassin mechanic, it should be Freddy, but I did try to balance it a little more by making it cost more. Even though I just posted the commanders, I’m considering taking that Foxy down because even that extra cost might not be enough of a repercussion or drawback.
