CCDD 050417—Haunted Blade

Cool Card Design of the Day
5/4/2017 - Top-down equipment.


  1. Neat. Nice top-down design. I particularly like the link between granting lifelink and the life loss clause. Since you lose more life total the more life you gain, I read it as "the more the haunted sword 'bonds' with its host, the angrier it is at you the planeswalker if you let him/her die or take him/her away", which is a neat little story.

  2. This would be cool as a rare. Also an interesting design if it used Unstable Mutation/Consuming Fervor tech to incentivize moving it around or give the creature a set lifespan.

    1. Consuming Blade 2
      Artifact U
      When Consuming Blade is equipped and at the begging of your upkeep put a -1/-1 counter on equipped creature.
      Whenever equipped creature attacks or blocks it gets +2/+2 for each counter on it.
      Equip 2

    2. Dig it. Distilling:

      Whenever equipped creature attacks or blocks, put a -1/-1 counter on it. It gets +3/+3 until Eot for each -1/-1 counter on it.

      (Because +1/+1 per charge counter would be weak even if it didn't help kill.)
