The Art and the Mistakes 3: Flamekin Village

Flamekin Bladewhirl – Does this look like a guy that wakes up in his house every morning, going down to the kitchen and slicing some bread?


Flamekin Brawler – Does this look like a guy that pats his children on the head when they done something good?


Rebellion of the Flamekin – Does this look like a guy that likes to sit in a comfy chair reading a book, listening to the rain dropping on the roofs?


Soulbright Flamekin – Does this look like a guy even capable of LIVING IN A HOUSE?!


Why am I asking all this questions? It is because i really think the card Flamekin Village, a new card released in Commander 2014, is totally wrongly designed.

To me Flamekins are not civilized beings, going to the well for a bucket of water* every two days or so. Flamekins are creatuers of pure fire, summoned when needed. They are angry and only wants to make a hassle for someone. Thats, in short, why I dislike the card.

And naturally I have to show the card, here it is:


This is just personal opinions. Apart from the above, I think the card can do some crazy shit in EDH/Commander.

What are your opinion on Flamekins and their village? Please let me know.


* Yes there was a hole in the bucket!

    Ha, never thought about that before. But perhaps the flamekins just have a tough line of work were violence is often required, and when they get home they just want to take it easy and live in peace. Sure, they still can’t live in houses, but maybe they’re just for show.
