Wizards of the Coast Holiday Promo Card 2017


  • ascjni

    also a nice card

  • Ryuji Nichol Pabila

    baneslayer angel, akroma, run away.

    • Diego

      chromanticore

  • Giby86 .

    Not worded like that, but this would actually make for a really fun mechanic.

    • Hedronal

      Based on precedent it would probably be how black mana did an Odric, Lunarch Marshal effect.

      • Giby86 .

        Yes, exactly. Like, Sac a creature, if that creature had flying target creature gets flying. The same is true for trample, first strike etcetera. Not sure how a wording like that would work out the targets, though.

        • Hedronal

          Something like “If the sacrificed creature had flying, target creature gains flying until end of turn. The same is true for first strike, …, …, and vigilance. Each of those abilities may be given to different targets.”

          This is why I like the digital card game Eternal too, it can do things like this because the computer program knows what the card designers mean.

      • bentheechidna

        Black has already done that ability twice through Soul Flayer and Cairn Wanderer.

        • Hedronal

          Now that you mention it, so it has, thanks. This is a bit different though as it gives it to one other creature, not to itself like black or everything like white.

        • Daniel Scott

          Maybe it is how Black Green would do it, there is a sort of recycling feel in there.

  • Hedronal

    That flavor text is surprisingly dark.

  • Josh Kaufman

    Cute. But imagine if this was a real mechanic? Oh god. Imagine Chromanticore and a few creatures. You would need a piece of paper under each creature just to explain what everything is.
    But with all the storm around, I think another Gifts Given would be apropos. Or how about just a black card that has on it “sorry for the eldrazi”. That would have been a nice present.
