CCDD 081717—Will Golem

Cool Card Design of the Day
8/17/2017 - The idea with Will Golem is that it's wicked powerful if you've got a ton of mana, but you've got to do every little thing to keep it running.

It originally had "{1}: Untap" but I wanted you to be able to shrug off spell effects too, and flicker automatically untaps it. I would make that ability cost more if I didn't think it would ruin the aesthetic.


  1. Interestingly, this winds up being pretty similar to Chimeric Staff:

    The exile ability makes this pretty wild! Especially because you have to remember to flicker it if you want to attack two turns in a row.

  2. I wonder if "can't attack or block unless you pay" and "doesn't untap unless you pay" would convey the flavour better? You'd need a different effect for flicker though.
