CCDD 111218—Path to Peace

Cool Card Design of the Day
The problem with Path to Exile is that pesky downside. What if we turned that around and made it an upside?

Disclaimer: The problem with Path to Exile isn't its downside.


  1. Any particular reason for each instead of target? Seems bonkers in 2HG/Archenemy

    1. It prevents fizzling and makes it different in multiplayer, but I did that to reduce the power level (from Path to Exile+ to Celestial Flare+). It could target an opponent.

    2. "Also being green" is enough of a downgrade, imo.

      It is also very weird that you can cast this on your own main phase if you just want the ramp.

    3. "Target opponent exiles an attacking creature they control.

      If a creature is exiled this way, search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library"

      Above wording would solve the weirdness, but it's a fair bit wordier. More elegant than something like 'Only cast ~ during your opponent's combat phase' though.
