CCDD 081313—Blastwand .33

Cool Card Design of the Day
8/13/2013 - This is the card I made based on Taresivon's Pazblade Retributor. While it half wants to live in Tesla and half in Frontier, the effect is reasonably simple, turning anything into an Ashmouth Hound or Somberwald Vigilante* (hence the discount for using red mana). *That can also defend.


  1. I don't understand how this is based on Pazblade Retributor.

    1. Retributor lets you deflect blasts from artifacts. Blastwand is an artifact that blasts.

  2. Serviceable common, though the templating should really match Ashmouth Hound. The twobrid equip cost feels more "cute" than meaningful - it's not giving me a noticeable amount of value for playing this in a red deck.

  3. I just noticed that Ashmouth Hound and Somberwild Vigilante have different triggers (Vigilante only when it's blocked). Not sure why Wizards flip-flopped between the two-- for what it's worth I like the Ashmouth Hound version better.

    It's a good ability for an equipment, lots of fun on a deathtouch creature.
