Gravecrawler Baloth

Embalm
When Gravecrawler Baloth enters the battlefield, if it's a token, it enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.
2/2

(Note that even though this uses Embalm, this is not an Amhokhet card, for a lot of reasons).

This doesn't work. I think the following might (with maybe a minor tweak to the rules to clarify that the ability is using the value of X from the graveyard, not exile).
Quote:
When you embalm Gravecrawler Baloth from your graveyard, the token enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.

I don't think it should be this easy for infect creatures to get direct damage to players.
You need to choose all of the targets when it triggers and flip the coin when it resolves.

That's why there's a coin flip. If there were no coin flip, people would just choose player 80-90% of the time.

I like this. The art obviously has to be of a crop pentacle, perhaps with symbols at each tip.
I wonder if it should be "Add to your mana pool; if you control a swamp, you may add to your mana pool instead. If you control a..." That wouldn't read well without appropriate line breaks though, and I'm not on what basis WOTC hands out linebreaks.
