"Have you read the flavor text carefully? It's a grammatical train wreck..."

It's perfectly grammatical.

"Izzet-designed conductors atop Sunhome..."--this is the subject.

"...charge empty sets of armor..."--this explains what the conductors do.

"that give form to the fluctuating elementals."--and this explains what those charged suits of armor do.

Boiling it down, it says, "Conductors charge armor." What kind of conductors? Conductors that sit atop Sunhome and were designed by the Izzet. What kind of armor? Empty sets of it. What does the armor do? Give form to the elementals.

Your suggestion, however, makes no sense. "Izzet-designed conductors atop Sunhome charged empty sets of armor give form to the fluctuating elementals"? The tenses of the verbs don't match--"charged" vs. "give form". There needs to be a coordinating conjunction between the clauses "charged empty sets of armor" and "give form...". You wouldn't say "Izzet-designed machines generated electric... (see all)

I'm surprised they didn't call him "Shock Trooper".

Wait, the Izzet made something more stable?

This is to Ball Lightning what Lightning Helix is to Lightning Bolt. A good turn 4 play with a Silverblade Paladin in play

So.... Ball Lightning Helix?

Ball Lightning with lifelink. While Ball Lightning might be better overall, the one mana for lifelink was a decent tradeoff as lifelink becomes more valuable of an ability the higher the power of the creature is.

This is a very decent card in Boros.

Silverblade Paladin loves this guy, even though he bails on him at the end of the turn.

This is scary and good!
I like it, since I can respect that it's not quite "overpowered" (it IS super powerful, it can net a difference of 12 life in a single attack for 4cmc only), but still balanced enough to not make it frustrating (yeah, first strike and a simple ping does it for this guy)
4.5/5 for being quite balanced

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
