Do you mean the D1 elementals, or the Archon figures? I love the Archon sculpts, particularly Earth. And Water. Fire is less impressive than the others.

Arg. That's so true. But I'm not sure how to change him. I like him as a summoned figure, so that has to be on his card. I want him to benefit the Air Elemental somehow, because it's pretty flimsy otherwise. And I want all my Archons to grow beefier to various degrees as the smaller elementals die off. Not sure how I can simplify him to make room for a thematic ability. But you're right--he should have one.

Points wise, I'd say 110-120 for Sephyn, 50-60 for the Archon.
Really?? I'm with you on Sephyn, but you realize when 2 Air Elementals die, the Archon becomes a 5A/5D, right? That seems awfully cheap to me. Maybe I'm overestimating him.

-'Sephyn the Howling Storm' is called 'Sephyn the Stormcloud' in his ability text.
I did that for flair . . . Or Thanks and I'll fix it.

-In the special attack, there should be a period instead of a coma after 'Range 4' and another period after 'Attack 3'

-Personally, I wouldn't ALL CAPS Swirling Vortex or Blinding Wind Special Attack in the special attack's text, I don't think any official cards do that.
Good stuff. Thanks man. This thread got completely ignored when I first posted it. I'm hoping it's just because cards without pictures are boring. Anyway, thanks for your insight.

~Spite, *sigh* back to work
