CCDD 050712—Demon's Embrace

Cool Card Design of the Day
5/7/2012 - There are other things I need to write more than CCDDs, but I was scanning my folder of existing designs looking to see if I couldn't find three ready-made entires for HavelockV's design contest and saw too many neat things not to share one of them. Simple variations on classic themes like this are usable in a core set, but generally much better saved for an expert set where it's most important to find variations for all the required staples.


  1. A more streamlined version could be:

    Return target creature card from a graveyard to its owner’s hand. Target opponent loses life equal to its power and you gain life equal to its toughness.

  2. maybe it's just the art but it feels REALLY wrong flavorwise to have a demon that's in love. haha, otherwise, i think the card ability is great.
