CCDD 10516—Battlefield Ruler & Conqueror King

Cool Card Design of the Day
1/5/2016 - Two top-down designs from the same art. One probably a bit too strong and the other a bit weak.


  1. The first one doens't really look interesting in flavour. Why don't you try this: If [cardname] attacks, he get's +1/+1 until EOT for each attacking creature you control. If during the attackphase, [cardname] doens't attack, all attacking creatures get +1/+1 until EOT.

    That to me is a battlefield ruler.

    1. The flavor matches the art. He's sitting on his throne, overlooking the battlefield, as opposed to getting dirty himself.

      Your ability sounds cool too, if mathy.

    2. You can replace the second part of that ability with a tap activated ability. It has easier wording and I think that I like that it can combo with vigilance and untap effects.

  2. Battlefield Ruler feels slightly strong for a rare to me, and Conqueror King slightly weak for a rare.

    Good sign for both that someone had to ask, though.
