CCDD 081517—Rigged to Blow

Cool Card Design of the Day
8/15/2017 - Here's an aura that can change the flow of the game in a number of ways.


  1. Chip points out this should be red.
    Red black makes a lot of sense to me here.

    1. Conversely, False Prophet makes an argument for this to be white. It'd probably need a different flavor, and possibly be "Enchant Creature You Control"


      I could also see a totem armor version:

      Aggressive Deterrent 1WR
      Enchantment Aura (R)
      Enchant Creature
      If enchanted creature would be destroyed, instead remove all damage from it and destroy this Aura and all other creatures.

    2. Even redder:

      Rigged to Blow
      Enchantment - Aura
      Enchant creature
      Whenever enchanted creature is dealt damage, it deals 3 damage to each other creature and player, then enchanted creature's controller sacrifices it.

      Adjust the number of damage as necessary.

    3. Yeah, if you're going that direction Bloodfire Infusion is a good model: http://magiccards.info/ap/en/57.html

      I really like how the sacrifice option makes you jump through fewer hoops while still having a similar functionality

  2. (name of mardu goblin in this commander product)'s Plot {R}{W}{B}
    Enchantment - Aura
    Enchant creature you control
    Sacrifice enchanted creature: Destroy all other creatures.
