Flail Whale
: Destroy target creature with damage and toughness of 2 or less. ~ gains a +1/+1 counter.
If ~ has 4 or more +1/+1 counters then it has flying.
2/2

Could have , or in its cost and/or be a 2/3 instead.
More often than not you'll be either sideboarding this against Populate or offing your own tokens. WW to ping and put a +1/+1 counter is not value. Either reduce the cost or make it start with a better body - like 2/2 or even 2/3 if uncommon.
clicked for amazing name, was disappointed by card :c

why white? 
+1/+1 counters (sort of creature life gain), creature tokens, flying and this sort of removal seem white, but being water dwelling seems blue. This is correct?

I'll adjust to being a 2/2 and increase the ability to being removal for 2/2 or less instead of just 1/1 or less.

Wait... are you saying that... Flail Whale was a Fail Whale?


Sorry... had to say it!

He'll grin a shiny grin at me as he flips another coin - and I'll know who it was. How could I not?

You may have Flail Snail assign its combat damage as though it weren't blocked.
white spells cost an aditional to cast

(2/4)

I hope it's less fail now.

I supose this could in some respects be green black based on the RTR green black guild.

Technically, every color has access to +1/+1 counters. Green is supposed to have the most, though. (Think of green being to +1/+1 counters what blue is to card draw.) White usually gets Champion of the Parish-type effects or everyone gets a counter. Red gets effects like Borborygmos, Curse of Stalked Prey, and the bloodthirst mechanic. Black gets Sengir Vampire-type effects, along with other ones that benefit one creature. Blue uses them as markers.

"Power matters" destruction is , but (Planar Chaos notwithstanding), it tends to be more "white kills the strong, black kills the weak".

Great pic

TY for the info, there seem to be various combinations of , , and that fit ok for 3. I wouldn't mind keeping a little white as well.

I'm loving the Flail Snail, we should make a creature type for them.

Dosn't ping mean return to hand? I would think token decks for small tokens, or other decks with lots of small creatures including those with lots of mana dudes for ramp would have to remove this creature quickly if they could because otherwise once a few land are in play they could be loosing multiple creatures each turn to it, with it growing quite big.
"ping" means "Deal 1 damage to."
"bounce" means "return to hand."
