    True Potential

    Transform or Flip target nonland permanent. (Cards with Meld and Modal Dual-faced cards can't transform)

    Blood Mine
    Land
    T: add
    Pay 3 life and return ~ to your hand: add

    Mind Perforate - Sorcery
    BB
    Replicate: 1
    Target player reveals their hand and discards a card with the highest converted mana cost from it.

    A mind is broken not by one calamity, but by a million inconveniences.

    Mind twist is fine on a power level, but this solves the random problem and the land screw problem.

    Structuring it with replicate does also mean that it's also more resistant to counters and it's better with stuff like cascade, and heavy discard is still a bit of a fun killer.

    Re: Obligatory shitty card creation thread

    The replicate was primarily to keep the wording simple and make it cost BB for the first one instead of 1B or 2B.

    But point taken. I think heavy discard is much more interesting than draw and free counters.

    Dodging counters makes this potentially very strong. Example: if they have FoW and you replicate once, you're guaranteed to take both FoW and their highest CMC card. Countering is pointless because then they lose FoW + blue card + next highest CMC card + 1 life, even worse. Spell Pierce/Daze just trades spots with a high CMC card instead of stopping the hand-slaughtering.

    Multikicker 1 may be the mechanic you really want. "Then repeat for each time ~ was kicked."

    Yah looking at
    Strength of Tajuru
    Torment of Hailfire

    What you said would be better wording.

    What if they started making creatures with Ward that allowed the controller to pay a "kicker" cost as an activated ability (as opposed to upon casting) that made the Ward more severe. For example:

    Ward 2 + Ward-Kicker 2 (Whenever this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays 2. When you pay the Ward-Kicker, until the end of turn, instead whenever this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays 2 and discards a card).

    This could make for some interesting gameplay. The permanent's controller would be incentivized to leave mana up to pay the Ward-Kicker if he believes removal is in hand. The opposing player would have additional decision-making considerations: will he pay the Ward-Kicker? Am I willing to pay the kicked cost?

    Hexproof is just more valuable than this, I think.

    I don't mind if Ward scales but it should scale with the permanent, like as the mana value goes up just let Ward costs go up and then let the opponent decide out if the gate of they're gonna pay the increased cost. Making both players treat Ward as a chance to get reactive feels bad if you're the creature- player and you just want to curve out.

    Of course it is but hexpeoof is pretty awful from a gameplay perspective.

    Ward is inherently a lesser form of Hexproof but the idea is that it's conditional and therefore provides more decision-points. This just builds upon that.

    I guess we have to agree to disagree on the last sentence. If all you're doing is curving out, turning creatures sideways, and hoping to reduce your opponents life to zero that's not very interesting gameplay. IMO reactive play, deciding between multiple lines of play, and deciding when to "go for it" is the essence of what makes Magic a great game in the first place.

    Oh I didn't realize this was Innistrad Standard Obligatory Shit Card Creation Thread my badt

    I mean yes fundamentally it's stupid that we live in a society where one-mana Terminus deals with True Name Nemesis, I have a whole ideological issue with gaming of every stripe from TCGs to ARPGs to MOBAs to fucking Mario clone side-scrollers and how "can't effects" lead to game design dead-ends and super boring power creep, but if you're gonna take the Legacy meta and talk about fair mechanics you might as well just be real about what you're creating and slap the ability on a 2/2 for and watch it get played as often as every other protection bear that color has to offer.

    Re: Obligatory shitty card creation thread

    Ehh...there's any number of ways to implement that mechanic on a Legacy playable creature. Legacy mostly plays creatures that are hate bears, generate value, or are under-costed beaters. Ward can be useful on all of those.

    I just really like the design space of Ward and think there is a lot of depth for them to explore. Its a way better mechanic than Hexproof or Indestructible.

    All creature cards in all zones are changeling in addition to other types.
