It's time to mix it up! Swap in them beats and change the flow. [Insert additional music reference here]

Here are the phases of this card design competition
No thread rules were added to this season. Please populate and manually edit this thread with them.
In reality, what are harpies but just the aerial equivalent of nagas? (hehe)
The balancing of the spell requirement is... tricky to say the least.
The cost and stat-line amount to a few things:
Combine it with Poison spells to get a gigantic weapon.
(For reference, combining it with a Deadly Poison will grant a 4/3 weapon)
Here's my first idea. The flavor is nice, but it might be a bit unoriginal, so I intend to come up with a second option.
Edit: As promised, here's something a little more interesting. I'm open for suggestions.
I'm back! Didn't mean to go silent for so long. I don't always feel like joining feedback and decided I don't need to participate every week... Cue me not having a lot of inspiration for the prompts and skipping multiple weeks in a row, which I might regret once the season is over. Then I got a little busy irl, so my break took longer than expected. Still submitted a few decent cards in the meantime.
Here's my first idea:
SN1P-SN4P found a very versatile friend!
P0NG's art is a placeholder for now. I'm trying to find another piece I've used earlier, but no success so far. If anyone happens to know where it's hiding, I'd be grateful for a pointer.
I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres, hpmor.com
A quick idea. Only the non-italic values swap with each cast.
"Truth is in the shadows, waiting to be revealed by the light. But light only disperses the shadow." - Me
"If other people shared traits of those considered naive, the world would've become a better place." - Also me
The requirement of 4 spells is also balanced, I think. Sure, a class with 0-Cost spells could play it on turn 1, but it's not that much better than the old Innervate + Chillwind Yeti, so yeah.
The main problem I see is how similar it is to linkblade's card; I hope you two don't end up stepping in each other's toes. Not sure if this'll be an issue for other people (it isn't for me).
The card seems balanced enough, and I appreciate the thought you put into the exact numbers you ended up using.
I'm not a fan of the name (sounds a bit lame to me) and there's also the issue of it having a similar gimmick as Demon's card, although I'm not sure if it'll actually give you trouble.
Also, consider making it a Rager.
Finally, the alternate artwork for P0NG is much better, IMO. I'd even use it as the art for P1NG, as it's better quality and seems to reflect Rush better than Taunt.
My only (small) issue with it is the watermark, as it doesn't seem to belong to FoL. The flavor doesn't have anything to do with music and the way it combines the swap and "ammo" mechanics feels like it's from a later expansion where they decide to revisit these concepts.
Also, "2 Arrows left" makes this effectively a Twinspell. That's not a problem, it's like Echo and "Repeatable this turn". My issue with it is that it says "Swaps with each cast" while it will only ever swap once…
I'll chime in with some feedback:
@AeroJulwin - so the number on "[x]" left!" is the number of total uses? I thought it was the number of additional uses. :D
@anchorm4n - I wanted to find art of multiple arrows like a scatter shot, but to no avail. Maybe finding gun art will ease the task.
Feedback time. It's hard to feel the motivation to do this when so few people are part of this now, but here I go. I think maybe I'll change Cobalt Harpy to be 8 mana worth of spells.
Beach Lurker is amusing, but I would probably agree that I don't think something like this is particularly likely to win the competition.
Harmonic Melody is a cooler design, even though Priest does already have a Harmonic card.
Going to leave this revamped version here for future feedback.
You've got 24 hours left everybody!
Not entirely happy with the art for the harmonic version of my card, but at least it fits the harmonic/dissonant transition perfectly, so I stuck with it anyways.
In retrospect it would have been nice if the prompt allowed for you to swap stats of/with other cards as well, since the design space ended up a little tight in my experience.
3:33:33 left to vote for your favorites before the finals! Good luck everyone.
Congratulations to Loknax! Two in a row if I'm not mistaken.
Congrats to Loknax! Actually three in a row if you're counting the April Fool's competition. Nice card and a good example for the fact that the spirit of the card is more important than a perfect execution (the last line should have been written in italic). I also found the artwork very impressive and fitting.
