CCDD 030611—Armor Angel

Cool Card Design of the Day
3/06/2011 - Armor Angel isn't Beluga Caviar. It's not Lemon-Crusted Lobster nor Peking Duck. Armor Angel is a burger and fries. There's nothing unusual or fancy about it. It's neither terribly healthy nor decadent. It's just a tasty meal that you don't have to think about. Sometimes, that's all a body needs.


  1. Sword of the Paruns with wings! A fun half-lord, it would probably be rare (especially at an aggressive cost of 2WW for a 3/3 flier with upside). I like giving it flying, that makes it more likely you can take advantage of both of its abilities without getting it killed.

  2. I like that card. It would be interesting to have its ability also affect itself.

  3. I believe I've designed a very similar card in blue, without flying and with +1/-1 and -1/+1 respectively. Getting rid of the minuses makes it a lot cleaner in terms of complicating the board, now that I look at it. You don't have to worry about holding it back for fear of killing an X/1 on your side, or stare at it resentfully as it lowers the power of your blockers.
