CCDD 100516—Giant-Size, Might of Titans & Strength for the Strong

Cool Card Design of the Day
10/5/2016 - Here are three Giant Growth variants that care about the targets starting size.

  1. I like the last two, but not Giant-Size. That's blue. The other two, though, I like.

  2. I love giant-size! Such a green card. Would be silly for it to be blue.

    1. Do you think Wings of Velis- Vel wasn't Blue? This effect is super Blue. Giant-Size is also bad, which makes me want Blue to have it over Green, and I don't think two colors need access to it.

    2. I'd want to see it in blue more often than green, but it's very creature-focused, and about size, so I don't think green is unreasonable. It's definitely of less value to green than blue, that's fair.

    3. My first post had a /contention tag to show it was tongue-in-cheek, but I think the javascript ate it.

      I actually do think that Wings of Velis-Vel is probably okay in blue. I think Spectral Flight is an egregious color break. I think Diminish makes more sense in White or Black than blue. I think Pongify and its variants are absurd to argue as "blue". I think Polymorph is explicitly green.

      I have a lot of contentious ideas! But I think limiting what colors can do leads to a more fun game in the long run, and MaRo's take on "polymorphing magic is blue" is misguided. (But that's just my opinion.)

    4. I approve of this contention.

  3. Strength for the Strong just begs to grant trample as well.

    1. Yes! If I'm pumping a 9 power creature getting an extra card is lack luster

    2. Might of Titans does grant trample, Wobbles.

      I was thinking Strength for the Strong is dangerous enough as a mana-less combat trick. Players can cast it on creatures that already have trample if they prefer.
