CCDD 031311—Tiger Blood

Cool Card Design of the Day
3/13/2011 - On Saturday, Aaron Forsythe made a joking call for top-down tiger blood designs. Pretty sure my response tweet never made it back to him, but I thought the design was interesting enough to share, so here it is.

Basically, if you have the good fortune to be born with tiger blood, you are automatically a winner. In Magic terms, you can't cast Tiger Blood, but you can get it for free if you start the game with it. The proper templating for the last ability is "You can't lose the game and your opponent's can't win the game," but seeing as how this is a joke card anyhow, I think the open-ended version is more appropriate. Finally, I'll admit that I wasn't sure whether to make Tiger Blood red or green. I think it could be argued either way.
