CCDD 051717—Mind Lure

Cool Card Design of the Day
5/17/2017 - Lure and Mind Control share a certain flavor, and play well together too.


  1. Lure to the Fray {U}{R}{G}
    Enchantment - Aura
    Enchant creature
    When ~ enters the battlefield, target player gains control of enchanted creature. Enchanted creature attacks each turn if able. All creatures block enchanted creature if able.

    The "target player" part might be too cute, but I like the occasional times it'd come up.

    1. When would it come up? Is this targeted at multiplayer?

    2. Multiplayer yes, but even moreso a harmless offering for a creature to make sure you can get a nasty death trigger out of it (costing you a blocking creature, rather than needing a removal spell).

    3. We don't do nasty death triggers on creatures so much these days, but I imagine they could always show up from time to time.

  2. I imagined something like, "enchanted creature attacks you each turn if able. If it deals damage to you, gain control of it".

  3. Treacherous Lure 2RRG
    Sorcery (R)
    Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. This turn, all creatures block it if able.

  4. This is such a nice design, elegant, powerful and exciting.
