Is that activated abilities with flavor text?
I, uh, sort of like it. Although I don't think it's a good idea, since it will in most cases be massively confusing. If "There is never just one" is actually supposed to have any rules meaning, then you'll have to tell me.

Drone
Creature - Xenomorph Coman
, : Search your library for a card named Drone, reveal it and put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
Flavor text.

I don't know what either of your creature types are, but they're not Magic ones.

You don't know what a Xenomorph is? I admit, I have no idea what a Coman is (official term for the Human-DNA xenomorphs?), but for anybody to not know what a Xenomorph is...Have you not seen the Alien movies? Or Alien vs Predator? (Netherborn Phalanx has a depiction which always reminds me of the xenomorphs.)

As for the card...Drone is a valid creature type in Magic, so I don't quite agree with Mown's wording suggestion, even if the intent is to search out another copy of the card. I'd suggest adding Drone to the creature type line and leaving it open to interact with other Drone creatures.

Oh, but wait, there were multiple answers that fit my thoughts to some questions. What colors did they say I was?

I care very little for space themed fiction.
It wasn't so much a suggestion as it was just clarifying how the wording should be. It specifically searches for a Drone, so I saw no reason to change it. I mean, I wouldn't want to try to take control of his card and make it my own now, would I?

This sentence makes me sad.

It also makes me hope Magic visits a plane with space-travel so it will annoy you.

But yeah, no, as his card is currently worded, it could search up any card with Changeling and any Drone creature card (all 16 of them). And whether or not that was the intention, I think it's an interesting effect that should be kept since xenomorphs generally behave in a hive-like manner.

While true, it wouldn't actually be able to search for itself, and given the name, I assume that was the purpose.

Arrrgh damn you punctuation and my stupidity for not using the spell check! that line was meant to read "Creature - Xenomorph, Common" (as in its a common card) and yes the ability is meant to be able to find outer Xenomorph Drones within the deck. , Why would it not work? and the flavor text is meant for the card not the ability.

Thank you so far for your views on my first home made card

In hindsight, it's pretty obvious that it was supposed to be common.

The search ability doesn't work for the card itself because it's not a Drone. It's just a Xenomorph, the game doesn't care about names, or derivative creature types, in case all Xenomorphs are Drones. Fairly easily fixed by making it a Creature - Xenomorph Drone though. But for that I would proably change the name.

Hmmm, You had me at tap for flavor text. I want to find a way to make things like that work or something. . .

Rough draft.

Maybe better:

You realize that can only be activated once?
Of course. It'd be broken otherwise. Probably still is.
