CCDD 051811—Arborian Badgers

Cool Card Design of the Day
5/18/2011 - Arborian Badgers is the strange offspring of Giant Badger and Hungry Spriggan. While definitely best on offense, like the Spriggan, it has inherited the Badger's defensive instincts should it be blocked. I believe I made this at the same time as Auger Dodger. I went with the old badger's mana cost, but this could be just 2G in today's pie since it's still usually worse than the Spriggan.

  1. I don't think Gustcloak creatures are that appealing to players, because the ability is only useful in a scenario where you attack with more creatures than the opponent has blockers. It usually implies the attackers aren't big enough to kill the blockers, otherwise you would just trade. Even with so much work and risk, only the smallest ones of your team get through.

    This card might have more appeal if it was a 3/3 that gets +3/+0 when unblocked and +0/+3 when blocked (costing 4G?) or a 4/4 that gets +4/+0 when unblocked and +0/+4 when blocked (costing 4GG?).
