Flavor homerun, otherwise quite janky, ey?

It is weird, though, that it stops the soldiers who just crawled out of its belly from connecting.

Otherwise, mechanic-wise similar to Sleeper Agent.

I feel like it should have unleashed a bunch of soldiers all at once rather than trickling them out one per turn. That would put it more in line with the Trojan Horse story. Maybe depending on how many turns it had been alive.

I love the concept for the flavor behind this card, but it's pretty weak unfortunately.

I'm not entirely content with realization of flavor to functionality though.
The flavor issues I see (as well as the changes I'd make to fix them) are the following:

- Make it a Horse Construct:
If a creature that's based on the Trojan Horse isn't a construct, I don't know what is.

- Make the effect not just check the controller, but the owner as well:
The flavor gets screwed up once you take control of the horse (e.g. with Homeward Path). The effect still triggers and your opponent will get the tokens instead. But those tokens represent the soldiers you hid in your fake present. If you take it back, those soldiers shouldn't suddenly turn against you.

- Make it unable to block, or a noncreature artifact entirely:
(Lord_of_Tresserhorn already pointed that one out)
It's an inanimate object after all. It shouldn't be able to block, especially not th... (see all)

Love that they made a card of this, but I don't think the mechanic quite captures it.

If only this was Legends, it could say "Soldiers your opponents control can't be blocked by walls and gain banding." Now you're talking.

In multiplayer, how do you decide which opponent gets the horse?

Hopefully there will be a hero in the next set that offers protection.

This seems quite amusing in EDH or any other casual multiplayer format.

Also, another fun target for Strionic Resonator.

My first thought was my Zedruu the Greathearted EDH deck.

9/18/13 - Entry 8

This will be my final journal entry. The flavor... is everywhere. We can't stop it. We can't even hold us back. The flavor will be the doom of us all.
