I like the idea and design, but she sounds really OP :/ I mean, she's an earth pony, yet her teeth can magically go sharp and her eyes glow? I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work that way. I'm not saying she's a BAD character, but she could use some improvement. And I've been around for a long time in the world of characters, so let me guess: when she goes insane and angry pretty much no pony can ever hope to defeat her.

Now, if you haven't done that last bit, ignore this following piece, but if you have, listen: that wouldn't work. In fact, it would be the other way around. "Anger makes them stupid". She would be an easier target to others rather than a threat. Anypony that knew how to fight well could stand against her. I guess it could be considered a fatal flaw, but the whole idea of it just doesn't work. Earth ponies are meant to have very little connections to Equestria's magic. Why would Cut Throat (stick around for my critique on the name C: ) be any different? Well, I'll leave you to sort that out by your own choices.

Now! The name. While a nice choice for a character like this, it also doesn't work very well. At least not without a bio. Remember: this is the world of Equestria, where cute candy colored ponies gallop around and pegasi and unicorns exist. It is not the next Dead Island game or whatever. Why would her parents name her Cut Throat? Most ponies have cute names, or even normal ones (Such as Trixie). Why would her parents risk tipping over the line? What if she grew up as a doctor or something? " Doctor Cut Throat, could you please come here? "
We can all see how that would end up. Even worse, she could of been a surgeon. Now, I understand that making names to fit your OC while remaining inside Equestria norm can be hard. I have a few similar issues with my pegasi pony Dark Grave. See? She has a creepy name too. But I have a bio that allows it. Although Dark didn't know it, her parents were users of dark magic, just like she has grown up to be. The way she uses magic isn't through unicorn magic, though. She takes blood, flesh and bones of ponies, and uses them in rituals to cast spells. So all you really need is a bit of reasoning to have what you want. Your pony could change their name, forget it and have to be renamed by themselves or maybe by another pony who has a darker mind, whatever. Anything that fits a characters personality, mental state, age, gender, and if they have one, cutie mark, can be applied to have things make sense.

Remember, I'm not saying this to be mean, but so you can have a bit of pointers in the future. Of course, I'm not always right and I'll probably look back at this a few years from now and think "What was I THINKING?! " but I still have time until then :3 I'm still just a kid (ohgawdwhymustIbesoyoung?) and have requested critique on my OC Dark Grave before so I can improve her. However, most of what they said was actually covered in her uncensored bio (I had to censor it before because the website was family friendly...). But enough about me! Go forth, and design mighty ponies! >:D

In my opinion. An artist's best work comes when they rely more on their own abilities. Spoken from own experience.
