NOTES:
This is probably the crudest drawing of a cloud ever.
Passive ability: airborne & cloud (see text ^ )
NOTE: WHEN EITHER CARD IS HIT WITH LIGHTNING/THUNDERBOLT; THE RESULTING AFFECT IS THE EQUVALENT OF PLAYING THE THUNDERSTORM/LIGHTNING STORM SPELL. YOU ARE NOT TRANSFERRING THE LIGHTNING/THUNDERBOLT SPELL TO ALL YOUR OPPONENT'S CARDS....THANK YOU.
Airborne.
SERIES:

All criticism is happily accepted here! Thanks in advance to all who post!

EDIT: Used new card creator to place  :water& :air in the card description.
EDIT: Used a very noticeable method to clarify secondary ability.  ;D

4 :air is kinda expensive for a 0 attack creature, even if it does give you quanta.
i'm not sure what kind of deck i would build with this card.
you have some sort of combos in mind?

I should probably lower it. As for strategy: just your basic fractal strategy. Could be useful in the FQ strategy. (I guess) Tell me if you find other uses please!

I think it is best if the creature costs 2 or at most 3 quanta, that would be better.

This may be too powerful or it may be just right.
This is 1 card that generates 2 quanta per turn with an investment cost of 4.
Turn1234567
Quanta-20246810
This card is more prone to removal but is essentially a double pendulum with a cost of 4.

I am personally of the opinion that this is not overpowered and that it would help if appropriate variants are created for the rest of the sub group [:water :earth, :earth :fire, :fire :air] or maybe also [:aether :entropy, :entropy :time, :time :gravity, :gravity :aether, :darkness :death, :death :light, :light :life, :life :darkness]

Now it is too powerful
It is two pendulum for 1 card and 1 quanta (calculation done at end of turn)

This cost needs to be increased back to 4.
If you play a fractal cloud, Blue Crawler, Firefly deck the Fractal cloud will pay for itself and be able to help pay for the damage fractal even if it cost 4

when you put it that way, it IS way too OP. I'm gonna wait for more votes before changing it again though. (really tedious process to change it)

I suggest to leave this for a few days for more people to decide. In the meantime, keep updating so more people will see it.

You know your right. This card could be the start of a whole new para-element card group. I.E. Dust ( :earth , :air )
Magma (  :earth:fire ) Mud (  :earth:water ) Steam ( :fire:water ) Smoke ( :fire:air ) Cloud (  :air:water ).Just a thought. Other elements could do it too. Like Shadow ( :light . :darkness )so on and so fourth.
