CCDD 011717—Demophobia

Cool Card Design of the Day
1/17/2017 - Looking for effects that work like Pacifism, but aren't. Demophobia causes its victim to experience a crippling fear of crowds.

This version is super effective while you have no creatures, or are even just a bit behind on the arms race. I suspect that's strong enough to be uncommon, so here's another common attempt:


  1. Enchanted creature can only attack or block alone?

    1. Excellent flavor, simplest effect, but also the easiest to work around. Maybe 1W cantrip? Eh, I like it better cheap, pure, and a little weak.

    2. I'd go with the Rancor clause at W.

    3. Infectious Cowardice W

      Enchanted creature can't attack or block alone.
      When enchanted creatures dies, return ~ to the battlefield enchanting a creature that attacked or blocked with it this turn.
