Ever came under attack by a large horde of creatures you can't block? Ever wish those creatures were going at someone else, like, oh, that smug player controlling them?

Now, the creatures aren't actually attacking their controller (that would create several ruling problems), but it's the next best thing. The best part is that this can't be stopped by a Fog.

Being inspired by Illusionist's Gambit, perhaps it would be better to make it mono-red to have more of an individual card identity.

 

Always nice to see a (mostly) correctly-templated textbox. "Deal" rather than "inflict" would be correct here.

Actually I feel Grixis colors suits this card perfectly. But on a second note, the card should say "deal" rather than "inflict", which is something I've seen quite frequently- does that terminology come from Yugioh or something?

 

(Love the flavor text)

Yeah, I'll change it to "deal". I still have some muscle memory from Yugioh card design.

 

Changed mana cost to 1UBR.

Hey you guys remember "Cryptic Command"... Yeah this is its evil twin. The colors are perfect since Grix always stall games for a late finish namely "Cruel Ultimatum"

 

But what there is to see in this card is how much use it infact have.

 

1. It's a fog. It prevents you from taking combat damage that normaly Cost 1 mana but hang with me.

 

2. It do damage to the opponent, and the range is like 1-3 against control up to like 10-11 against Merfolk Tribal. Let's meet in the middle and call that a Lava Axe 5 dmg to face. You know what that's a 5 mana thingy! But lightning bolt is 1 mana and 3 dmg so lets call that 3 mana worth. So now the mana is covered in value...

 

3. Well the creatures remain tapped.. oh wauw thats funny now you can hit him this normaly cost about 1 to 4 mana to tap all creatures let say 1 mana worth since its only the attacking ones and that's what fog do to.

 

Now you have 1 Card that can do all the above, but it cost a little more if you only need 1 effect, yet you get em all for the wonderfull prize of it having 3 color types.

I call playable and on the good side at that. 9/10 give the man a cookie.

 

Regards Aztegio
