CCDD 051116—Something in the Woods

Cool Card Design of the Day
5/11/2016 - The woods used to be terrifying, back before we'd hunted all the predators close to extinction.


  1. I don't like that this is going to get played in Mono-G decks, especially since Green is so good at getting their one swamp, or even making Black mana without playing a single Swamp. I think this probably wants to cost something like 4BB to make it more of a challenge. For these reasons, I think Howl of the Night Pack is a better design.

    Also, you totally missed the opportunity to call this Howl of the Night.

    1. 'Howl of the Night' is quite good.

      Yeah, I could totally see this costing {3}{B}{B} or {5}{B} or even {4}{B}{B}. (And it's totally uncommon, and the zombie should likely ETBT.)

    2. Another (uglier?) option is "Put X 2/2 zombies into play where X is the lesser of the number of forests and the number of swamps you control."

  2. Fell Huntmaster 4BB
    Creature- Demon
    When ~ ETB, you may sacrifice it. If you do, put a 2/2 black Zombie token onto the battlefield for each Forest you control.
