CCDD 042716—Brave Fool

Cool Card Design of the Day
4/27/2016 - I wanted to figure out a mechanic for this art that would encourage your tiny human to tangle with a real monster. It needed a chance to defeat that creature. But it's clearly white, and white doesn't do random like red does, which is why looking at the CMC of the top card felt wrong. If only there were a class of cards that could boost a creature…

Brave Fool doesn't have heroic, but it feels very heroic and goes in an heroic deck because it rewards playing all the same spells.

I added 'repeat this process' just now, so that you can dream big. And because even lucking into Raised by Wolves won't allow Brave Fool to best Polukranos by itself.

…Since I added that, the warrior trinket text probably no longer justifies the extra space.

  1. This card looks like a lot of fun! I want to flip up Hex and then laugh maniacally as everything dies.
