CCDD 122013—Dutiful Knight

Cool Card Design of the Day
12/20/2013 - Another knight to show up when things are looking dark.


  1. I am not a developer, but I suspect this is overcosted by at least {2}. Compare to Briarpack Alpha and Hussar Patrol. Also, weird that it counts your creatures.

    1. I could maybe see that at uncommon. Both of those cards are very good and this would be too, at that price.

    2. Was originally going to write "black creatures your opponents control" but why not give players a little more control? Hurts the theme, but helps the gameplay. Not sure which is better.

  2. How about a cross between the previous one and this one, something like [[[Stone Idol Trap]]]

    Knight in time of Need
    Flash, Vigilance
    ~ costs {1} less to cast for each creature attacking you.

    That will often do what the previous one did of only being castable to jump in to rescue you, but without explicitly saying "do this or this is a dead card".
