Actually you can only swing in for 1 on turn 2... I'd rather just play a 1/1 with flying as opposed to this thing.

what about reducing the activation cost? If you reduced it to {1}, could you then use the ability 4 times?

I haven't looked at the Oracle text yet, but I think the proposed idea would work.

Ah, okay. Oracle changes it to no more than twice a turn. Ah well. :/

InternetNinjacy must really love being a troll.

Anyways, Roterothopter leaves a little to be desired. Personaly I wish all the thopters were 0 cmc creatures that all varied slightly. The problem with Roterothopter is that it is just barely better than ornithopter, which is a good card mainly due to the fact that it costs 0 mana and can chump block, be used for sacrifice effects, and as part of a combo piece. But while Roterothopter is better functionaly, the fact that it costs even 1 mana destroys the appeal that ornithopter had. Sadly a 0/2 flyer for 1 with very limited and expensive firebreathing doesn't impress many people.

Though personaly, I still have a soft spot for it since it is a thopter...

Not as good as Ornithopter, but it's still just about playable - after all, it lets you swing with a 2/2 flier on turn two.

Autocarding isn't hard, and yet you managed to fail entirely at autocarding R&D's Secret Lair, InternetNinjacy. Good job not living up to your own pitiful standards, idiot.

(Have fun editing your post after the fact to pretend that you got the link right. You fool no one.)

Ornithopter's stupid bigger brother.

It's Homelands - they can even mess up Ornithopter!

And damn right you shouldn't.

Cool art, as Amy Weber's art always is.
