CCDD 103014—War Recruiter

Cool Card Design of the Day
10/30/2014 - Just a reusable Zealous Conscripts. "Just."

War Recruiter is restricted to hitting untapped creatures, which limits its power a bit, and encourages players to attack with their creatures, which was the real inspiration for the card: "You're guys will attack for you, or they'll attack for me, but no sitting on their asses."


  1. This should really have 1 toughness. If keeping it alive in order to reuse it is a bit of a challenge, it makes for more interesting gameplay.

    1. agree with this comment. then I can hold back your guy with two 1/1s. Card seems too powerful though - the best Act of Treasons are usually the ones where your opponent is trying to block, and racing a red deck is usually a losing proposition. I would add an activation cost as well.

  2. Remorseful Kleptomaniac 1R
    Creature- Human Rogue (R)
    Remorseful Kleptomaniac can't be blocked and attacks each turn if able.
    When Remorseful Kleptomaniac deals combat damage to a player, gain control of target noncreature permanent that player controls until end of turn. Untap that permanent.

    Weird Red mana elf.

    1. As much as "unblockable" is cool, It should really be intimidate for red.

  3. Yasova Dragonclaw 2G
    Legendary Creature - Human Warrior
    At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may pay 1[U/R][U/R]. If you do, gain control of target creature an opponent controls with power less than Yasova Dragonclaw's power until end of turn, untap that creature, and it gains haste until end of turn.

    1. it's always fun when designs on here are secretly real cards
