Your Catsplosion (you also missed the "l") doesn't convey the nature of the catsplosion. Either have each player pay mana, or take damage according to the amount of cats. It also should go away unless at least two cats are in play.

The way I see it, if they are an obsticle to you, they are your enemies. So really, your opponent is controlling the cats that are in your fortress, and is being buried under the cats you control. I also wanted as little "paperwork" involved.

At the begining of each player’s upkeep, that player puts into play a number of 1/1 Green Cat tokens equal the the number of Cat tokens they control.
Technically, this implies other ways to obtain Creature-Cat tokens, because the card itself bears no way of obtaining any initial ones.

The purpose of my original card was to provide the player with a stampede of weak creatures that would at the same time cause him great trouble, in form of damage, though the "divided by 10" was probably stretching it a bit, divided by 3 or 2 would probably be better, so that the player had to think up ways to kill off the buggers until they kill (or incapacitate, if you swap for mana payment) him.

Oops, that's supposed to say "number of cat tokens in play, plus one. So the first turn everybody gets one cat, then three, then 7, the 15, then 31, then 63, then 127, assuming all the cats survive. Once they start attacking each other, those numbers go back down. You see, the cats DO cause problems for you- your enemy's cat's. You can't really say that the cats in DF are under your "control". Thus, they have to be controlled by the other player.

Definitely Black.  Especially since the goblins are generally black anyway.
What? Goblins are red through and through...

I would say Magic goblins are red, but DF goblins are black, because they're more evil.

Not sure about the king, as it's only vaguely related.

The dining room is made of finely-crafted win and menaces with spikes of awesome.  Perhaps it should be an artifact instead of an enchantment?

artifact would work too - the reason i made it an enchantment was because I don't remember any artifacts that boosted a specific creature type.

Here's a rare land (from the 2D version this time - maybe rename to Aquifer if you want to stick with the 3D)

Card Name: Cave River
Card Color: Blue
Type & class: Legendary Land
Card Text:
Tap to gain 1 blue mana
Tap to Tap target creature
