I'm not sure a blanket statement about coin flips woks, but "If you would lose a coin flip, you win that flip instead," almost certainly does.

As a minor note about flavor, the card would feel much more red to me if the first ability were "Flip a coin. If you win the flip, discard a card, then draw two cards.  If you lose the flip, each other player dicards a card, then draws a card." Pure card draw feels a little too close to blue, even with the random element. (Plus, this guy feels very strongly red/blue anyway.)

Yeah, that wording is probably better, especially since multiplayer games may have coin flips which don't involve you.

As I was designing it I thought it was red/blue as well, but I WANT it to be red.  I want this guy to be pure rage at his lack of luck, as he progresses through his Planeswalker development, he gets more and more focused on controlling his luck and the luck of those around him.

I also thought about the discard, but it seemed wordy and not as beneficial to the opponents...doesn't look too bad now that I updated it.
